Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

CARPENTER ANTS OUTDOOR

For best results, locate and treat carpenter ant nests. Apply a perimeter treatment using either low or high volume applications described in the “Pest Control on Outside Surfaces and Around Buildings” section of the label. The higher dilutions and/or application volumes, as well as more frequent applications, may be necessary when treating concrete surfaces for carpenter ant control.

Maximum control is generally achieved using the following procedure:

1) Treat non-porous surfaces with low volume applications using 0.5 to 1.0 fluid oz. of Bifenthrin Pro Insecticide/Miticide per gallon of water and applying this dilution at the rate of one gallon per 1,000 square feet.

2) Treat the trunks of trees that have carpenter ant trails, or upon which carpenter ants are foraging, using 0.5 to 1.0 fluid oz. of Bifenthrin Pro Insecticide/Miticide per gallon of water and applying this dilution to thoroughly wet the bark from the base of the tree to as high as possible on the trunk.

3) Treat porous surfaces and vegetation with high volume applications using dilutions that are calculated to deliver 0.5 to 1.0 fluid oz. of Bifenthrin Pro Insecticide/Miticide per 1,000 square feet (refer to Table 3 Ornamental Application Dilution Chart or Table 5 Perimeter Application Dilution Chart).

4) For maximum residual control, dilute 0.5 to 1.0 fluid oz. of Bifenthrin Pro Insecticide/Miticide per gallon of water and apply at a rate of up to 10 gallons of dilution per 1,000 square feet.
