Directions For Use

It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

GENERAL DIRECTIONS: Prozap LarvaGuard Mosquito Larvicide Granules contain (S)-Methoprene insect growth regulator which controls mosquitoes before they can become adults for up to 30 days after application.

Measure and then sprinkle the appropriate amount of Prozap LarvaGuard Mosquito Larvicide Granules evenly over the surface of the water to be treated in order to control mosquitoes before they become breeding, biting adults. Measure the surface area of the water and follow the Application Rates table on the label for the appropriate amount of product to use. Emptying or discarding small containers that are holding water will ensure the best results. In instances where small containers cannot be emptied or discarded and for locations such as flower pots, old tires, urns, etc. use approximately 80 granules for every gallon of water.

Begin treating when adult mosquitoes are first noted in the spring and continue applications throughout the mosquito season, which is typically up to the first frost. After treatment, you may notice that there will still be live larvae in the water. Treated larvae will continue to develop normally to the pupal stage where they die.

NOTE: S-Methoprene insect growth regulator has no effect on mosquitoes which have already reached the pupal or adult stage prior to treatment.
