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.
Imported Fire Ants: Control will be optimized by combining broadcast applications that will control foraging workers and newly mated fly-in queens with mound drenches that will eliminate existing colonies. If the soil is not moist, then it is important to irrigate before application or use a high volume application. Broadcast treatments should apply 1 fluid oz. per 1,000 square feet. Mounds should be treated by diluting 1 teaspoon of Bifenthrin Pro Insecticide/Miticide per gallon of water and applying 1 to 2 gallons of finished spray per mound. The mounds should be treated with sufficient force to break their apex and allow the insecticide solution to flow into the ant tunnels. A four foot diameter circle around the mound should also be treated. For best results, apply in cool weather (65-80°F) or in early morning or late evening hours.
Note: a spray rig that is calibrated to apply 1 fluid oz. per 1,000 square feet of Bifenthrin Pro Insecticide/Miticide in 5 gallons per 1,000 square feet contains the approximate dilution (1 teaspoon per gallon) that is required for fire ant mound drenches in the spray tank.
