General Information



Demand G Insecticide may be used for applications to maintain outdoor areas where turf and ornamental ground covers are grown such as residential landscaped areas and non-residential landscapes around institutional, public, commercial and industrial buildings, parks, recreational areas, and athletic fields. Also for use around structures and landscapes on areas of bare soil, mulched areas or vegetation not being grown for food use.

Broadcast Demand G Insecticide with suitable application equipment to ensure uniform coverage over the treatment area. The application rates listed in the Lawn and Perimeter Use rate table will provide control of the respective pests under typical conditions. Use higher use rate for longer length of control.

Although not required, optimal results may be achieved by watering in granules after application as the active ingredient is released from the granule in the presence of moisture.

For perimeter treatments around foundations, applications may be made as needed during periods of pest pressure. Do not exceed 18 lb. per 1000 ft.2 or 800 lb./A per year.


Do not apply this product to edible growing crops or stored raw agricultural commodities used for food or feed.

Do not allow applications to contact water inhabited by fish, such as in ornamental fish ponds that are located around structures being treated.

Do not apply this product by aerial application.

Use of this pesticide adjacent to water may affect aquatic organisms. To protect these organisms, do not apply this pesticide within 25 ft. of lakes, reservoirs, rivers, permanent streams, marshes or natural ponds, estuaries, and commercial fish farm ponds.

In the state of New York, do not apply within 100 ft. of coastal marshes or streams that drain into coastal marshes.

Observe all restrictions and precautions which appear on the labels of these products.

Do not apply more than 0.36 lbs. of the a.i. (800 pounds of Demand G Insecticide)/A per year.

Good coverage is necessary to provide the most effective level of control.

Consult your state university or local Cooperative Extension Service office for specific pest control application timing in your area.

Application to turf should be started prior to the establishment of high insect pest populations and significant turf damage. Make reapplications as necessary to keep pest populations under control, using higher rates as pest pressure increases.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions


Band Treatment Around Foundation

For control of ants, beetles, crickets, earwigs, firebrats, millipedes, mites, silverfish and sowbugs as commonly found around or near foundation of structures as well as in yards. Certain of these pests may enter houses. Applying a continual band of insecticide around a building foundation can greatly reduce the potential for entry by crawling pests. For optimal control, remove debris and leaf litter from next to the foundation, cut back vegetation and branches that touch the foundation, and move or rake back rocks, deep mulch, or other potential pest harborage next to the foundation prior to application. Apply a 3 to 5 foot band of granules next to the structure foundation. Apply at the rate of 2 to 3 lbs. per 1000 square feet. Distribute granules uniformly. For optimal control, water lightly to dissolve granules.
