How To Use:
Outdoor: Apply when ants are active and foraging (when soil temperature is greater than 60º F). To determine if ants are foraging (feeding), place a potato chip near the mound and observe if ants begin feeding. Do not apply product if ants do not feed within a few minutes. Repeat observation at a later time to evaluate if ants are feeding. Apply product when feeding occurs on the potato chip. Repeat applications as needed.
Do not apply product within 6 hours of a rain event. Apply product when area is dry from dew or irrigation. Do not irrigate for 24 hours after
application. The bait will become unattractive to ants if it becomes wet. Ants that are actively foraging will begin picking up the bait soon after application.
Indoor: Using a duster or similar equipment, apply bait ONLY into cracks and crevices, or other inaccessible areas such as, but not limited to, structural voids, unfinished attics or crawl spaces. Apply 0.25 – 0.5 ounce (2 teaspoons – 1 tablespoon) per crack, crevice, or other inaccessible areas where ants are entering the structure or where ants are nesting. Apply evenly in unfinished attics and crawl spaces at a rate of 0.25 ounce (2 teaspoons) per 100 square feet only if the space is secured or otherwise inaccessible to children or pets.
Store in cool, dry, secure place and keep container tightly closed. Store container away from pets. This product is formulated with oil. Prolonged exposure to air may turn oil rancid and reduce the attractiveness of the bait. Use within 3 months after opening.
