How to Apply
This product is a ready-to-use insecticide formulation containing dinotefuran. When dispensed, the formulation rapidly expands generating a dry foam with an expansion
ratio of approximately 30:1, with 1 oz (weight; approximately 5 sec) of product producing approximately 1 qt of foam. Use only with the supplied injector and injection tip(s). Once the actuator has been released, hold the injector tip in place for approximately 8 sec to allow the product within the injector tube to dispense into the treatment area. This product can be used to control insects where they are found or suspected;in nests, galleries and harborages.
This product can be applied in and around commercial and residential structures as well as non-structural elements that are subject to attack by, or provide harborage to, insects. Re-apply as necessary to obtain control. Applications can be made from the interior and/or exterior. Adequately treat the area by filling the crack and crevice or insect harborage or making a spot treatment to the exposed surface. Avoid contact with treated surfaces until dry. Drilling of hole(s) may be required to access galleries or harborages.
Treatment of insect harborages associated with trees, shrubs, utility poles, fences, under slabs or other nonstructural elements is permitted. This product can be used as a localized treatment for the control of existing infestations of subterranean termites and other wood destroying insects. Application can be made prior to, in conjunction with or after a stand-alone treatment. Do not use this product as a stand-alone treatment for active structural infestations by subterranean termites.

|NOT FOR SALE TO:
TREATMENT OF INSECT GALLERY OR HARBORAGE: Use adequate foam to treat the known or suspected insect harborage.
CRACK & CREVICE® TREATMENT: Adequately treat the area by filling the crack and crevice at or near point of infestation.
SPOT TREATMENT: For exposed surfaces, make a spot treatment by wetting the surface area not to exceed 2 ft2 for each spot of application. Allow foam to dissipate or wipe surface dry before leaving site.
WOOD DESTROYING INSECT TREATMENTS
TERMITES [SUBTERRANEAN (Coptotermes, Reticulitermes, Heterotermes and Zootermopsis) AND DRYWOOD]: Locations for indoor treatment may include areas associated with exposed wooden elements in areas such as crawlspaces, attics, unexposed wooden elements inside walls or other harborages. Locations for outdoor treatments may include exterior wooden elements such as decks, fencing, landscape timbers, wooden retaining walls, siding, channels in damaged wood, in spaces between wooden elements of a structure, and junctions between wood and foundations. Apply product to termite galleries, channels, damaged wood, harborages between structural elements or within the construction, exposed surfaces, within trees,
shrubs, utility poles, stumps, under slabs and in or on fences. Detection through the use of K9 or other detection devices such as mechanical sounding techniques, listening devices (e.g. stethoscopes, acoustic emission detectors), imaging devices (e.g. x-ray devices, infrared cameras) or movement detection equipment (e.g., microwave detectors) can aid in identifying galleries and tunnels within wooden elements. Drilling hole(s) may be required to gain access to the knownor suspected gallery or harborage. Drill hole(s) at 1 or more locations along the gallery to adequately treat. Use of a moisture meter may aid in determining the spread of a treatment. Application to exposed subterranean termite tunnels (i.e. mud tubes) may be made in residential and commercial areas. Break open a section of the mud tube and apply directly over the exposed area. Apply a sufficient amount of foam to cover the exposed area and to a distance of approx. 2’’ in each direction over the mud tube itself. This treatment is intended for localized termite infestations only. The purpose of such applications is to kill workers or winged reproductive forms which may be present in the 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. For active termite infestations, get a professional inspection.
FORAGING CARPENTER ANTS: Inject foam into insect tunnels, cavities and/or harborages. Treat points of entry or exit from harborages such as around doors and windows. Treatment of harborages associated with trees, shrubs, fences or other non-structural elements is permitted.
TERMITES AND CARPENTER ANTS HARBORING IN TREES, SHRUBS, STUMPS, ULILITY POLES, SLABS AND FENCES: Drill hole(s) in areas of suspected termite or ant activity. It may be necessary to drill multiple holes around the circumference of the tree, shrub, stump or utility pole and at varying heights to adequately treat the nest or gallery system. For trees with severe infestation or very large trees, the interior cavity within the tree may be larger than what can be adequately treated with a single can. When treating slabs, drill hole(s) through the slab where termites or carpenter ants are active, or suspected, and inject foam. For fences, treat exposed surfaces where termites are active and drill wooden members where termites are active, or suspected, and inject foam.
