KNOCKOUT™ Area Treatment kills fleas and ticks. It contains a unique combination of ingredients that kills both adult and pre-adult fleas, and even kills fleas before they grow up to bite.

NYLAR® Insect Growth Regulator, a unique ingredient in this flea spray, continues to kill fleas for 120 days (4 months) by preventing their development into the adult biting stage. It reaches fleas hidden in carpets, rugs, drapes, upholstery, pet bedding, and floor cracks. Prevents reinfestation and buildup. One treatment with this spray gives continuous flea protection for 120 days. Leaves no objectionable odor or sticky mess and when used as directed, does not stain furnishings.

Precautions And Restrictions

Do not enter or allow others to enter the treated area until the sprays have dried. Do not allow people or pets to enter treated areas until vapors, mists, and aerosols have dispersed, and the treated area has been thoroughly ventilated. Remove pets, birds, and cover fish aquariums and ornamental fish ponds before spraying, and turn aquarium systems off. Do not apply when food is present. Do not use in food areas of food handling establishments, restaurants, or other areas where food is commercially prepared or processed. Do not use in serving areas while food is exposed or facility is in operation. Serving areas are areas where food is served, such as dining rooms, but excluding areas where foods may be prepared or held. In the home, cover all food processing surfaces and utensils during treatment or thoroughly wash utensils before use. Cover exposed food and remove utensils in serving areas. Do not apply this product in a way that will contact adults, children, or pets, either directly or through drift.

Fleas and Ticks: SHAKE WELL BEFORE EACH USE. Hold can 2 or 3 feet from surfaces to be treated. Be sure to apply uniformly using a sweeping motion to carpets, rugs, drapes, and all surfaces of upholstered furniture. Be sure to treat pet bedding as this is a primary hiding place for fleas. No need to remove pet bedding after treatment. DO NOT TREAT PETS. Use a registered flea control product on your pets in conjunction with this treatment. Retreat as necessary. Avoid wetting furniture and carpeting. A fine mist or spray applied uniformly is all that is necessary to kill fleas and ticks.

Storage And Disposal

Do not contaminate water, food, or feed by storage and disposal.

Pesticide Storage: Store in a cool dry place inaccessible to children and away from heat and open flame. Store away from food and pet food.

Pesticide Disposal and Container Handling: Do Not Puncture or Incinerate! If empty: Place in trash or offer for recycling, if available. If partly filled: Call your local solid waste agency for disposal instructions.
