Directions for use

Do not apply when the soil is saturated with water as adequate distribution of the product into the soil will not be achieved.

Measure lawn area before application to determine size and weigh the required amount of product.

Evenly spread granules over the area to be treated.  For optimal control of beetle larvae (Black beetle, Argentine scarab, Argentine stem weevil and Billbug) apply preventatively and lightly water in immediately after application.  When treating for caterpillars apply when pests or damage is observed, irrigation and mowing should be delayed until 24 hours after application.

If applying by spreader: The use of a professional spreader or garden spreader that can be calibrated for even output is recommended for optimal product performance.

If applying by hand: Weigh out the amount required to treat a measured area, then spread evenly moving in a steady forward motion.  Do not attempt to spread the product in one pass, but apply by passing over the treated area at least three times in different directions each time and applying about a third of the require amount each pass.

Spreader Equipment Cleanout: Immediately following application, thoroughly rinse spreader and other application equipment with clean water.

NOT TO BE USED FOR ANY PURPOSE, OR IN ANY MANNER, CONTRARY TO THIS LABEL UNLESS AUTHORISED.

Toxic to aquatic life.

DO NOT allow chemical containers or granules to get into drains, sewers, streams or ponds.

DO NOT feed grass clippings from treated areas to poultry or other animals.
