This Product Controls These Pests or Diseases: Earwigs ( Dermaptera ), Cutworms ( Noctuidae ), Pillbugs ( Oniscidea ), Crickets ( Gryllidae ), Ants (excluding Fire Ants, Harvester Ants, Pharoah's Ants and Carpenter Ants), Slugs and Snails ( Gastropoda ).


Sprinkle product around the area you'd like to protect to create a barrier. Pests find these granules irresistible, but they are fatal once ingested. Evening is the best time to apply bait as pests primarily travel and feed by night or early morning. Treat all likely areas of infestation, especially around the perimeter of garden plots, because pests travel into plant areas from their daytime refuges.


  • Scatter the bait on the soil around or near the plants to be protected with a hand or power operated broadcast, granular or drop spreader (gravity or rotary) to ensure uniform coverage over the treatment area.
  • Scatter the bait around the perimeter of the area to provide a protective barrier to keep pests from entering.
  • If the ground is dry, wet it before applying bait. This product works best when soil is moist but with little or no standing water.
  • Apply at the higher rate if the infestation is severe and re-apply after heavy rain or watering.


  • Place bait in piles.
  • Use food utensils (tablespoons, cups, etc.) for food purposes after pesticide use.
  • Apply more than 3 times in any 30 day period.
  • Apply within 3 days of harvest.
