FOR RESIDENTIAL USE: INDOOR APPLICATION: PRECAUTIONS AND RESTRICTIONS: Do not apply this product in a way that will contact children, either directly or through drift. Except when applying to dogs, do not allow adults or pets to enter until sprays have dried. Application is prohibited directly into sewers or drains or to any area like a gutter where drainage to sewers, water bodies or aquatic habitat can occur. Do not allow the product to enter any drain during or after application. Not for broadcast use. Not for use in outdoor residential misting systems. Remove or cover exposed food and drinking water before application. Remove or cover dishes, utensils, food processing equipment, and food preparation surfaces or wash them before use. Remove pets, birds and cover fish aquariums before use. Do not wet articles to the point of runoff or drip. Do not use treated article until spray has dried. Do not apply more than once a day.

Directions For Use

To operate sprayer, turn tip to proper setting, spray surfaces or pinstream cracks and crevices and pump trigger to spray as directed. For best results, follow directions for specific use areas. Do not use this product in or on electrical equipment due to possibility of shock hazard. Avoid excessively wetting furniture and carpeting. Always test in an inconspicuous area prior to use, as liquid products may adversely affect some natural and synthetic fibers. DO NOT CONTAMINATE FOOD AREAS.

FLEA AND TICK CONTROL. FOR SURFACE AND CARPET SPRAY: Prior to application, thoroughly vacuum all carpeting and upholstered furniture, along baseboards, under furniture, and in closets. Put vacuum bag into a sack and dispose of in outside trash. Apply uniformly at the rate of 1 fluid ounce per 31 square feet to rugs, carpets, draperies, and all surfaces of upholstered furniture. Treat under and around furniture if pets frequently rest in these areas. Avoid excessively wetting upholstered furniture and draperies. A fine spray applied uniformly is all that is necessary to kill fleas. To kill ticks and other labeled insects, apply directly to pests. Do not allow children or pets to walk on treated surfaces until completely dry. Do not spray on pets or humans.

FOR USE IN VEHICLES: If flea infested animals are transported in vehicles, use as directed above to control infestation.

FOR USE IN PET DOG AREA: Treat dog bedding and other dog resting places as these are primary hiding areas for fleas and ticks. No need to remove pet bedding after treatment. To reduce infestation, spray around sleeping area, around baseboards, window and door frames, wall cracks, local areas of floors, and other resting places until the surface is slightly moist. Also spray the entire inside surface of doghouses and kennels. Do not allow pets to use treated areas until completely dry. For best results, to protect your pet against and to minimize reintroduction of adult fleas from outdoors, use EPA registered flea and tick products, such as Absorbine® UhraShield® EX Insecticide & Repellent Flea & Tick Control For Dogs, flea and tick collar, pet powder, pet spray, pet dip, pet shampoo, flea shampoo or flea and tick pet shampoo, in conjunction with this application and prior to re-entry.

DOGS: Kills and repels fleas, ticks and lice. Consult a veterinarian before using this product on debilitated, medicated, aged, pregnant or nursing animals. Do not apply to puppies under the age of 12 weeks. Sensitivities may occur after using ANY pesticide product for pets. If signs of sensitivity occur, bathe your pet with mild soap and rinse with large amounts of water. If signs continue, consult a veterinarian immediately.

Cover animal’s eyes with a hand. Do not spray directly on mouth, nose and eyes. Spray head, ears and chest until damp. With fingertips, rub into face, and around mouth, nose, and eyes. Then spray from the neck to the tail, finishing legs last. For best penetration of spray to skin and on heavily coated animals, direct spray against the natural lay of the hair, spraying the ruffled hair directly behind the hand. Do not apply more than 9.0 fl. oz. of product to dog. Make sure the spray thoroughly wets ticks. (When used on miniature and toy breeds of dogs, towel dry the animal after 1/2 hour if not completely dry). Avoid contact with genitalia.
