Demand G Granules-25 lb Bag
With an innovative formulation process, the granular perimeter treatment of Demand® G provides powerful and efficient protection against nearly 30 species of pests(See longer description for complete list).Granule perimeter treatments are typically applied in a band of up to five feet wide around the house and can be applied to soil, ornamental plants, mulch, and lawn.
Once Demand G is applied, its active ingredient--lambda-cyhalothrin-- begins working to disrupt the nervous system of any pest that comes in contact within a short time. Each treatment last for several months, with an average of 3 months. Reapplication may be necessary depending on the severity of the pest problem, climate, and other factors.
General Information: Lawn and Perimeter Pest Control
Demand G Insecticide may be used for applications to maintain outdoor areas where turf and ornamental ground covers are grown such as residential landscaped areas and non-residential landscapes around institutional, public, commercial and industrial buildings, parks, recreational areas, and athletic fields. Also for use around structures and landscapes on areas of bare soil, mulched areas or vegetation not being grown for food use.
Broadcast Demand G Insecticide with suitable application equipment to ensure uniform coverage over the treatment area. The application rates listed in the Lawn and Perimeter Use rate table will provide control of the respective pests under typical conditions. Use higher use rate for longer length of control.
Although not required, optimal results may be achieved by watering in granules after application as the active ingredient is released from the granule in the presence of moisture.For perimeter treatments around foundations, applications may be made as needed during periods of pest pressure. Do not exceed 18 lb. per 1000 ft.2 or 800 lb./A per year.
Specific Use Directions
Treatment around Foundations
For control of ants, beetles, centipedes, cockroaches, crickets, earwigs, firebrats, millipedes, mites, silverfish, sowbugs and other listed pest commonly found around or near foundation of structures as well as in yards. Certain of these pests may enter houses. Applying a continual band of insecticide around a building foundation can greatly reduce the potential for entry by crawling pests. For optimal control, remove debris and leaf litter from next to the foundation, cut back vegetation and branches that touch the foundation, and move or rake back rocks, deep mulch, or other potential pest harborage next to the foundation prior to application. Apply a 5 to 10 foot band of granules next to the structure foundation. Apply at the rate of 2 to 3 lbs. per 1000 square feet. Distribute granules uniformly. For optimal control, water lightly to release the active ingredient from the granules.
General Lawn Application
For control of ants, armyworms, centipedes, cockroaches, crickets, cutworms, earwigs, grasshoppers, green June beetles, Japanese beetles (adult), leafhoppers, millipedes, mites, pillbugs, sod webworms, spider mites, spittlebugs, springtails and other listed pest. Apply at the rate of 2 to 3 lbs. per 1000 square feet with a fertilizer spreader when grass is dry. For best results, water lawn lightly to dissolve granules.
For control or suppression of billbugs, chinch bugs, dung beetles, green June beetle grubs, Hyperodes weevils, Japanese beetle grubs and mole crickets, water grass thoroughly after application for best results. For billbug control, apply when activity is first observed or when chewed or brown grass indicates damage from these insects. For grub suppression, except dung beetle, treat any time between late July and early October. For dung beetle grub suppression, apply in spring or early summer when damage is first noticed. For best results, water grass thoroughly as soon as possible following application. Treat again in late summer or early fall if a second generation occurs.
For chinch bugs, use higher rates during summer when both nymphs and adults may be present. For mole crickets, make applications for adults during early spring when grass areas may be subject to continuous invasion. For best results, apply as late in the day as possible and water in as soon as possible following treatment. When the soil is not moist, irrigation before application will bring mole crickets closer to the surface to enhance contact with the granule. Applications at the time of peak egg hatch will increase control of early nymphal stages that are more susceptible to insecticides. As nymphs mature, higher rates may be necessary.
Spot Treatment for Ants Other than Fire Ants
For general ant control, apply 1 to 2 teaspoons over and around each ant hill. Lightly water to dissolve granules. For optimal results, apply water gently to avoid disturbing ants. Use of high pressure watering equipment may disturb the ants and cause migration reducing product effectiveness. NOTE:
Difficult or extensive ant infestations will benefit from a combination of broadcast treatments and spot applications. If soil is not moist, irrigate before application to bring ants closer to the surface to enhance control with Demand G Insecticide granules.
