Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

OUTDOOR PERIMETER BARRIER TREATMENT AROUND STRUCTURES Applying a continual band of insecticide around a building foundation and around windows, doors, service line entrances, eaves, vents, and other areas can greatly reduce the potential for entry by crawling pests. To facilitate application, remove debris and leaf litter from next to the foundation, trim vegetation and branches that touch the foundation, and move or rake back rocks, deep mulch, or other potential pest harborage next to the foundation. To help prevent infestation of buildings, apply as a band to soil and vegetation 6-10 ft. wide around and adjacent to the building. Also, treat the building foundation to a height of 2-3 ft. where pests are active and may find entrance. Apply as a coarse spray treatment to thoroughly and uniformly wet the band area, using 1-5 gallons of treatment solution applied to 800-1,600 sq. ft.

Amount of concentrate is dependent upon pest species (see pest table and comments), infestation levels, and service interval desired.


- Packet = 0.33 oz. (9.5 gm.) of Demon WP Water-Soluble Packets (equivalent to 2 level tbs.).

- Application volume may be greater than 5 gal./800–1600 sq. ft. if required under heavy vegetative or landscaping materials in order to obtain desired coverage.
