On the Lawn
Broadcast Lawn Insect Control Granules with suitable application equipment to ensure uniform coverage over the treatment area. Do not apply more than 0.004 pounds of active ingredient (2 pounds of this product) per 1,000 sq. ft. per application on residential use sites (around private homes, apartment buildings, condominiums, nonagricultural outbuildings, noncommercial greenhouses, preschools or day-care facilities). Apply at up to 0.008 pounds active ingredient (4 pounds of this product) per 1,000 sq. ft. per year on non-residential use sites (around institutional, public, commercial or industrial buildings; parks; recreational areas or athletic fields). Irrigation or watering by 0.1 to 0.5 inches immediately after application generally improves the effectiveness of this product.

Fire Ant Mound Treatment
Apply ½ cup of this product per mound and then drench the mound with 1 to 2 gallons of water. The mound should be drenched with sufficient force to break its apex and allow the insecticide to flow into the ant tunnels. Food utensils such as teaspoons and measuring cups must not be used for food purposes after use with insecticide.

PRECAUTIONS:
See the label for precautions specific to different species.

This pesticide is extremely toxic to fish and aquatic invertebrates. To protect the environment, do not allow pesticide to enter or run off into storm drains, drainage ditches, gutters or surface waters. Applying this product in calm weather when rain is not predicted for the next 24 hours will help to ensure that wind or rain does not blow or wash pesticide off the treatment area. Sweeping any product that lands on a driveway, sidewalk, or street, back onto the treated area of the lawn or garden will help to prevent runoff to water bodies or drainage systems.
