Application Instructions


Prior to treatment, thoroughly vacuum all carpeting, upholstered furniture and along baseboards, under furniture and in closets.

SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE. Use at the rate of 15 oz for up to 1,965 ft2 applying in a sweeping motion at a speed of 1 ft/sec. Avoid wetting or saturating carpets or furniture. A fine mist that is evenly applied is sufficient for the product to work. Avoid spraying wood furniture, floors or trim as water spotting may occur. Prior to treatment, make a small test application to desired surfaces in an out of the way area to determine if staining or spotting will occur.

FLEAS: Treat all areas that may harbor insects such as, rugs, carpets, upholstered furniture, pet beds, points where carpet and wall meet, draperies, around and under furniture or other stored items. Hold can at arms length and direct spray toward the area to be treated. Use a sweeping motion to apply product and back away from treated area while holding the can 24” away from the surface being treated. An area of 80-100 ft2 can be treated in approximately 10 seconds with this product. When treating upholstered furniture, treat under cushions and in seams and folds. Reapply as necessary.

SPIDERS (including Black Widow and Brown Recluse): Apply directly to spiders. Spray 36 inches (3 feet) away for one second. Before applying, consider the surfaces that spray may contact if concerned about potential staining.

TICKS: Apply directly to ticks in carpet or flooring; directly apply to wall/floor junction and upper wall areas as needed. Spray 24 inches (2 feet) away for one second. Thoroughly treat pet resting areas such as furniture and carpeted areas. Use care when applying to hardwood floors and only use a tight mist to those areas.

COCKROACHES, ANTS (excluding Carpenter, Harvester and Pharaoh ants), CRICKETS, SILVERFISH, SOWBUGS AND CARPET BEETLES: Apply directly to exposed insects in areas where these pests are found or may hide, including dark corners of rooms and closets, cracks and crevices, along baseboards and door sills and frames, behind sinks, stoves, refrigerators, and cabinets and around garbage cans, plumbing and other utility installations. Directly spray pests driven out of hiding places. Spray ant trails, nests and points of entry directly contacting ants. Reapply as necessary.

PET BEDDING: Treat pet bedding and resting places. Apply a uniform application of Pivot Ultra Plus to nearby cracks and crevices, along and behind baseboards, window and door sills, and localized areas of floors directly contacting fleas, as these are primary hiding places for fleas. Old pet bedding must be removed and replaced with clean fresh bedding after treatment.

INDOOR KENNELS: Remove pets before spraying. Spray Pivot Ultra Plus from 24” away from surface being treated. Apply with a smooth back-and-forth motion. A fine mist that is evenly applied is sufficient for the product to work. Re-treat as necessary to control fleas.


Point spray nozzle away from face. Hold can on slight downward angle. For best results, spray when air is calm. Spray with wind if breeze is blowing.

PESTS ON OUTSIDE SURFACES OF BUILDINGS (Ants (excluding Carpenter, Harvester and Pharaoh ants), Cockroaches, Crickets and Sowbugs): Spray pests directly on outside surfaces of building. For ants (excluding Carpenter, Harvester and Pharaoh ants), spray ants directly or around nests hidden under steps, brickwork, concrete, etc. Break apart accessible nests and spray directly on ants and around debris. Pivot Ultra Plus may be applied as a spot, crack and crevice or void treatment to outside surfaces directly contacting listed insects. Do not spray as a broadcast spray.
