The concentrate mixes easily with water and is applied using a hand or tank sprayer. Makes 64 gallons. One quart covers up to 16,000 sq ft. Use to treat areas indoors and outdoors around the home including around foundations, porches, wood fences and decks. READ THE ENTIRE LABEL AND FOLLOW ALL PRECAUTIONS AND DIRECTIONS. OUTDOORS TO CONTROL WOOD DESTROYING INSECTS: Mix 7½ fl oz with enough water to make 1 gallon. Treat infested areas and areas likely to be infested, such as wood surfaces, voids and tunnels in damaged wood, behind veneers, in structural voids (between stud walls and spaces between wood and foundations), along cracks, along crawl spaces and around outside buildings, porches, woodpiles, wooden fences and decks. Kills exposed subterranean termites*, dampwood termites*, drywood termites*, carpenter ants, ambrosid beetles, death hunter beetles, false powderpost beetles and powderpost beetles. *For localized control only. The purpose of such applications of this product for termites is to kill workers or winged reproductive forms which may be present in treated channels at the time of treatment. Such applications are not a substitute for mechanical alteration, soil treatment or foundation treatment but are merely a supplement. This product is not recommended as sole protection against termites. For active termite infestations, get a professional inspection. CARPENTER BEES: Mix ½ fl oz with enough water to make 1 gallon. Treat active tunnels where carpenter bee activity has been observed. Leave the entrance hole open for 48 hours after application to allow the bees to contact and distribute the insecticide throughout the nest galleries. Then plug the entrance hole with a piece of wooden dowel coated with carpenter's glue or wood putty. Plugging the hole will prevent re-infestation of old nesting tunnels and reduce the chances of wood decay. PESTS OUTSIDE THE HOME: Mix ½ fl oz (1 Tbsp) in 1 gallon of water and apply as a continuous band of insecticide around building foundation and around windows, doors, eaves, vents and other areas to greatly reduce the potential for entry by crawling pests. For easier application, remove debris and leaf litter from next to the foundation, cut back vegetation and branches that touch the foundation, and move or rake back rocks, deep mulch or other potential pest harborage next to the foundation. Apply a 3-foot band around the structure and upward along the foundation to 3 feet and around windows, doors and roof overhangs. Apply as a coarse spray to thoroughly and uniformly wet the foundation and/or band area so that the insecticide will reach the soil or thatch level where pests may be active. One gallon will treat 250 sq ft of surface area. Repeat application every eight weeks. OUTDOOR SURFACES USE: For control of ants**, centipedes, cockroaches, crickets, fleas, millipedes, mosquitoes, palmetto bugs, scorpions, sowbugs, pillbugs, spiders, deer ticks and waterbugs. Mix ½ fl oz (1 Tbsp) in 1 gallon of water and apply as a residual treatment to ornamental plants next to foundations of buildings and to surfaces of buildings, porches, screens, window frames, eaves, patios, garages and other similar areas where these pests are active. Repeat application every eight weeks. **Argentine, southern, field, Allegheny mound, Florida carpenter, cornfield, honey, pavement, nuisance.
