SHAKE WELL BEFORE USING. Point spray nozzle away from face. Hold can at a slight downward angle.  For best results, spray when air is calm. Allow a few minutes for product to take effect. Spray with wind if slight breeze is blowing (i.e. under 5 mph).

Flies, Mosquitoes, Flying Moths, Gnats and Wasps:  Spray area infested with these flying insects. Hold container 5-10 ft away from shrubs, bushes and grassy areas. Spray these areas with a slow sweeping motion at the rate of 1 to 3 seconds per cubic yard of space while moving away from the treated area. To reduce annoyance from these pests treat open porches and patios in a similar manner. Allow fog to drift over area. Give special attention to breeding areas such as garbage cans and compost piles.

Ants (except carpenter, fire, pharaoh and harvester ants), Crickets, Sowbugs, and Firebrats: Spray infested surface of patio, campsite, deck or picnic area hitting as many insects as possible. Also spray legs of tables and chairs to repel ants. Spray ant hills for best control. Keep 5 to 10 feet away from ornamental plants while spraying. Repeat as necessary, but no more than once per day.
