For mixing application instructions of Befenthrin Pro with other products, please refer to the label.
Use application volumes of up to 10 gallons per 1,000 square feet to get uniform coverage when treating dense grass foliage.
For low volume applications, less than 2 gallons/ 1,000 square feet, immediate irrigation of treated area with at least 0.25 inches of water following application is recommended to ensure efficacy of sub-surface pests such as, but not limited to, Mole Crickets.
Lawn Application Rate
The specified rate will provide excellent control of the respective pests under typical conditions. However, at the discretion of the applicator, Bifenthrin Pro Insecticide/Miticide may be applied at up to 1 fluid oz. per 1,000 square feet to control each of the pests. The higher application rates should be used when maximum residual control is desired.
Chinch Bugs: Chinch Bugs infest the base of grass plants and are often found in the thatch layer. Irrigation of the grass area before treatment will optimize the penetration of the insecticide to the area where the Chinch Bugs are located. Use higher volume applications if the thatch layer is excessive or if a relatively long mowing height is being maintained. Chinch Bugs can be one of the most difficult pests to control in grasses and the higher application rates (Up to 1 fluid oz. per 1,000 square feet) may be required to control populations that contain both nymphs and adults during the middle of the summer.
