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


General Lawn Application

- Dung beetles, Green June beetle grubs, Japanese beetle grub: Suppression only.

For control or suppression of billbugs, chinch bugs, dung beetles, green June beetle grubs, Hyperodes weevils, Japanese beetle grubs and mole crickets, immediately water grass thoroughly after application. For billbug control, apply when activity is first observed or when chewed or brown grass indicates damage from these insects. For grub suppression, except dung beetle, treat any time between late July and early October. For dung beetle grub suppression, apply in spring or early summer when damage is first noticed. For best results, water grass thoroughly with 1/4 to 1/2 inch of water as soon as possible following application. Treat again in late summer or early fall if a second generation occurs.

For chinch bugs, use higher rates during summer when both nymphs and adults may be present. For mole crickets, make applications for adults during early spring when grass areas may be subject to continuous invasion. For best results, apply as late in the day as possible and water in with up to 0.5 inches of water as soon as possible following treatment. When the soil is not moist, irrigation before application will bring mole crickets closer to the surface to enhance contact with the granule. Applications at the time of peak egg hatch will increase control of early nymphal stages that are more susceptible to insecticides. As nymphs mature, higher rates may be necessary.
