Structural Perimeter-Band Application:
To control pests listed in the table above except mole crickets, apply to ground area in a band up to 7 feet wide around and adjacent to the structure. For mole cricket control, see section on Limited Area Applications.
Landscape Boundary Application:
To control pests listed in the table above, apply to fence lines, ornamental gardens, pavement crevices, planter areas, and soil, vegetation, and mulched areas.
Limited Area Applications (Spot Treatment) for Listed Pests in Lawns and Landscapes:
Apply Advion Insect Granular Bait at a rate of 0.38 to 4.6 lb product per 1000 sq ft as a limited area treatment. Repeat application after 7 days, if necessary. To control adult mole crickets before they lay eggs, Advion Insect Granular Bait should be applied in the spring. To control mole crickets
nymphs and newly emerged adults, apply Advion Insect Granular Bait in the late summer and fall. For best results, apply in late afternoon to areas of turfgrass that are infested with mole crickets, show evidence of mole cricket damage or have a history of mole cricket infestation. If the soil is not moist, then it is important to irrigate before application to bring the mole crickets to the soil surface where exposure to Advion Insect Granular Bait will be maximized.
Apply bait using commercial bait stations suitable for granular insect bait. Place 2 to 4 oz of bait in each bait station depending on the bait station design and size. The number of bait
stations placed in the treated area will depend on the size of the area and the level of the infestation. Monitor the bait stations and replenish bait granules as needed.
Advion Insect Granular Bait may be used to control the pests listed in the chart below in crawl spaces, finished and unfinished basements and attics of residential, industrial and commercial buildings or structures. Advion Insect Granular Bait will kill cockroaches that consume the bait granules when placed in attics, crawl spaces and basements of residential, industrial and commercial buildings or structures, but this type of application alone is not intended to provide complete control of an indoor cockroach infestation. Monitor the treated
area, and reapply bait granules only as needed.
Crack & Crevice and Void Application:
Apply bait into cracks and crevices or voids at a rate up to 2 oz per 10 linear feet using a bulb applicator or other equipment for applying granular bait into cracks & crevices or voids.
Apply bait as scatter treatment at rate of 0.38 lb to 4.6 lb of product per 1,000 sq ft. The minimum application rate for cockroaches is 1.15 lb product per 1,000 sq ft (equivalent to 1.84 oz per 100 sq ft).
Perimeter Band Treatment:
Apply bait along walls in a band approximately 6 to 12 inches wide at rate of 2 oz bait granules per 10 linear feet. Bait Station – Apply bait using commercial bait stations suitable for granular insect bait. Place 2 to 4 oz of bait in each bait station depending on the bait station design and size. The number of bait stations placed in the treated area will depend on the size of the area and the level of the infestation.

This pesticide is toxic to fish and aquatic invertebrates. Do not apply directly to water, to areas where surface water is present or to intertidal areas below the mean high water mark. Do not contaminate water when disposing of equipment rinsewater or rinsate. Do not apply where/when conditions could favor runoff. Runoff from treated areas may be hazardous to aquatic organisms in neighboring areas. Do not apply to any impervious surfaces which may contact or lead directly to surface water, storm drains, or urban runoff conveyance systems
(gutters). Sweeping any product that lands on an impervious surface back onto pervious surfaces will prevent runoff to water bodies or drainage systems. Cover, incorporate, or clean up granules that are spilled.
