DO NOT use indoors or on pets.

Home gardens Rockeries, garden beds, along fences and around foundations.

To treat Ants, cockroaches and fleas, dust lightly along and around ant tracks, into nests or other pest infested areas. Repeat applications may be required. As a guide, 500g of Yates Ant & Roach Dust will treat 50m2.

To treat European wasps (not QLD or SA),apply sufficient dust to thoroughly coat nest entrance. Treat at night when wasps are less active. Wear protective clothing when treating nests (bee veil, long sleeved overalls and gloves). Reapply dust as required to maintain an even coating, particularly after rain.



Do not apply directly to humans, exposed food or food utensils. Toxic to bees, reptiles and fish. Do not apply near ponds, water supplies or fish tanks. Show great caution when treating wasps, i.e. cover up well and treat at night, cover your torchlight with red cellophane because wasps do not detect red light.
