Additional Application Restrictions for Residential Outdoor Surface and Space Sprays:
All outdoor applications must be limited to spot or crack-and-crevice treatments only, except for the following permitted uses:
1) Treatment to soil or vegetation around structures;
2) Applications to lawns, turf, and other vegetation;
3) Applications to building foundations, up to a maximum height of 3 feet.

PRO-MATE BIFENTHRIN controls a wide spectrum of insects and mites on trees, shrubs, foliage plants, non-bearing fruit and nut trees, and flowers in greenhouses, interiorscapes including hotels, shopping malls, office buildings, etc., and outdoor plantscapes, such as around residential dwellings, parks, institutional buildings, recreational areas, athletic fields and home lawns. Non-bearing crops are perennial crops that will not produce a harvestable raw agricultural commodity during the season of application. PRO-MATE BIFENTHRIN may also be used in feed and food handling establishments, animal confinement facilities, kennels, confined animal feeding operations, livestock premises, and in/around/under structures.
Resistance: Some insects are known to develop resistance to products used repeatedly for control. Because the development of resistance cannot be predicted, the use of this product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the use area. Consult your local or state pest management authorities for details.
If resistance to this product develops in your area, this product, or other products with a similar mode of action, may not provide adequate control. If poor performance cannot be attributed to improper application or extreme weather conditions, a resistant strain of insect may be present. If you experience difficulty with control and suspect that resistance is a reasonable cause, immediately consult your local company representative or pest management advisor for the best alternative method of control for your area.
See label for Dilution Chart.
To control adult mosquitoes outdoors on residential, institutional, public, commercial and industrial buildings, and lawns, ornamentals, parks, recreational areas and athletic fields.
Apply PRO-MATE BIFENTHRIN for mosquito control at an application rate of 0.33 to 1.0 fluid oz PRO-MATE BIFENTHRIN per gallon of water (0.07 to 0.22 Ibs bifenthrin/acre), and apply at the rate of one gallon of dilution per 1,000 square feet as a general spray (refer to the PRO-MATE BIFENTHRIN Dilution Chart). Use the high rate for residual control of mosquitoes that may potentially transmit malaria and arboviruses (West Nile fever, dengue fever, Eastern equine encephalitis, and St. Louis encephalitis.)
Apply as a residual spray to outside surfaces of buildings including but not limited to, exterior siding, foundations, porches, window frames, eaves, patios, garages, refuse dumps, lawns such as grass areas adjacent to or around private homes, duplexes, townhouses, condominiums, house trailers, apartment complexes, carports, fence lines, storage sheds, barns, and other commercial, residential and non commercial structures, soil, trunk of woody ornamentals, trees, shrubs, ground cover, bedding plants, foliage plants, flowers, non-bearing fruit and nut trees urban areas, parks, campsites, athletic fields, playgrounds, recreational and overgrown waste areas, roadsides and other areas where mosquitoes are found. May also be applied to non-bearing crops or perennial crops that will not produce harvestable raw agricultural commodities during the season of application.
Use the high rate for heavy pest infestation, quicker knockdown, or longer residual control. Retreatment may be necessary to achieve and/or maintain control during periods of high pest pressure, or if there are signs of renewed insect activity. For the lower use rates, repeat application should be limited to no more than once per seven days. For the high use rate of 1.0 fluid oz. PRO-MATE BIFENTHRIN per gallon of water, do not apply more than once per four weeks.
Apply with hand-held and back pack sprayers or mist blowers, ground sprayers, power sprayers, truck mounted hydraulic sprayers or mist blowers. Do not apply by air or with hand held or truck mounted cold aerosol ULV sprayers and thermal fogging devices. For best results apply when the mosquitoes are most active. Application during the cooler hours of the night or early mornings is recommended.
Do not apply when wind speed exceeds 10 MPH.
