directions For Use

It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. READ ALL DIRECTIONS COMPLETELY BEFORE USE. Avoid contamination of food or feedstuffs. 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 area while food is exposed or facility is in operation. Serving areas are areas where prepared foods are served, such as dining rooms but excluding areas where foods may be prepared or held. In the home, all food processing surfaces and utensils should be covered during treatment or thoroughly washed before use following treatment. Exposed food should be covered or removed. Non-food areas are areas such as garbage rooms, lavatories, floor drains (to sewers), entries and vestibules, offices, locker rooms, machine rooms, boiler rooms, garages, mop closets, and storage (after canning or bottling). Not for use in USDA Meat and Poultry Plants.

Remove pets and birds and cover fish aquariums before spraying.

For use only when building has been vacated by human beings and pets. Ventilate area for 30 minutes before re-entry.

For best results, treat all infested areas. Use one fogger for each 2000 cubic feet (15.5’ X 16’ X 8’ ceiling) of unobstructed area. Use additional units for remote rooms or where the free flow of fog is not assured.

PREPARATION: DO NOT use more than one fogger per room. DO NOT use in small enclosed spaces such as closets, cabinets or under counters or tables. Do not use in a room 5’ X 5’ or smaller; instead, allow fog to enter from other rooms. Turn off ALL ignition sources such as pilot lights (shut off gas valves), other open flames or running electrical appliances that cycle off and on (i.e. refrigerators, thermostats, etc). Call your gas utility or management company if you need assistance with your pilot lights.

Remove or cover exposed food, dishes, utensils, surfaces and food-handling equipment. Shut off fans and air conditioners. Close outside doors and windows. Remove pets and birds but leave pets’ bedding as this is a primary hiding place for fleas and must be treated for best results. No need to discard pet bedding after treatment. Cover or remove fish tanks or bowls. Leave rugs, draperies and upholstered furniture in place. This product will not harm furniture when used as directed. Open interior closet doors and cabinets of areas to be treated.

For more effective control of storage pests (Flour Beetle, Cigarette Beetle, Drugstore Beetle, Lesser Grain Borer, Merchant Grain Beetle, Sawtooth Grained Beetle, Grain Weevil, Warehouse Beetle, Red Flour Beetle, Confused Flour Beetle) and Cockroaches (Smokey Brown Cockroach, Brown Banded Cockroach, Asian Cockroach, German Cockroach, American Cockroach, Australian Cockroach, Oriental Cockroach), Crickets, Waterbugs, Palmetto Bugs open all cupboard doors (kitchen, bathrooms, pantry), and drawers for better penetration of fog. Remove all infested foodstuffs and dispose of in outdoor trash. For flea and tick control, thoroughly vacuum all carpeting, upholstered furniture, along baseboards, under furniture and in closets. Put vacuum bag into a sack and dispose of in outside trash. Mop all hard floor surfaces.


TO START FOGGING: SHAKE FOGGER WELL BEFORE USING. Hold can at arm’s length with top of can pointing away from face and eyes. Break off and remove tab on side of sprayer. Push down on finger pad until it locks. This will start fogging action. Set canister in an upright position on a table, stand, etc. (up to 30 inches in height in the center of the area) and place several thicknesses of newspaper under the canister to prevent marring of the surface. Treat the whole dwelling using multiple units in homes with more than one level and numerous rooms. Leave the building at once.

DO NOT RE-ENTER BUILDING FOR TWO HOURS. After two hours, open all outside doors and windows, turn on air conditioner and/or fans and let treated area air for 30 minutes before reoccupying. If additional units are used for remote rooms or where free flow of fog is not assured, increase airing-out time accordingly.
