- Do not apply this product in a way that will contact any other person. Only protected applicators may be in the area during application. Keep people or pets away from treated area until dry.
- In living areas, do not apply Optigard Flex Liquid as a broadcast spray. In these areas use only as a void application, or as a spot treatment (e.g. under and/or behind appliances) or crack-and-crevice application in areas where occupants will not be exposed to direct contact.
- When applying Optigard Flex Liquid as a crack-and-crevice or spot treatment in living areas, do not exceed 0.5 gallons/1,000 sq ft of a 0.1% finished dilution.
- For void applications, do not apply until location of heat pipes, ducts, water and sewer lines, and electrical conduits are known. Caution must be taken to avoid puncturing and injection into these structural elements. Do not apply into electrical switches or receptacles or other wiring where electrical shock hazards exist.
Optigard Flex Liquid must be applied as a diluted finished application using mixing directions contained in the label. Treatment techniques used should provide placement of the product in the infested areas or as near as possible. Optigard Flex Liquid may be applied to structural voids, in cracks, crevices, corners or other out-of-the-way places, such as under and behind kitchen appliances and baseboards, under sinks, around window and door frames, pipes and water heaters and in the attic, crawl space and garage. Acceptable locations for treatment also include non-living space areas including crawl spaces, attics and unfinished basements. Applications may be made as a crack-and-crevice spray, a coarse, low-pressure spot spray, a surface spray or as a structural void application.
Application to structural voids such as wall voids may be done by drilling a small hole into the void area or using a self-puncturing tip and injecting diluted product so that surfaces inside the void area are treated. Existing holes created by construction features may also be used to gain access to void treatment areas.
APPLICATION TO LANDSCAPE ORNAMENTAL PLANTS
Optigard Flex Liquid may be used on landscape ornamental plants to reduce populations of aphids, whiteflies and mealybugs which produce honeydew which serves as a food source for some ant species. Use a 0.0038% (equivalent to one packet per 80 gallons water) to 0.1% liquid dilution of Optigard Flex Liquid as a foliar or banded application. The 0.1% dilution may be applied up to 2 gallons/1000 sq. ft. Retreat as necessary to maintain control.
