Cockroaches, Ants, Earwigs, Millipedes and Centipedes, Crickets and Silverfish. Lightly coat a thin layer in areas where these pests are found and may hide such as cracks and crevices, behind and beneath refrigerators, cabinets, stoves, garbage cans and in and around sewer pipes and drains, window frames and in attics and basements. Dust insects directly if possible.

Fleas: Thoroughly treat floor and bedding in and around pets’ sleeping quarters. Treat surrounding cracks and crevices, baseboards, carpeting and wherever fleas are suspected.

Carpet Beetles: Dust along baseboards, carpet edges, under carpeting, furniture, in closets and shelving where these insects are seen or suspected.

Bedbugs: Dismantle bed and apply in joints, crevices and where rungs are inserted. See that all interior areas are dusted. Dust mattresses especially folds and edges. All cracks and crevices and around window openings in the bedroom should be treated.


Cockroaches, Earwigs, Grasshoppers, Ants and Crickets: Lightly coat a thin layer of powder or slurry to areas where these insects are found such as patios, outdoor sills, window and door frames. Apply around foundations, along ant trails and around sewer pipes and drains.


Contact with an insect pest or mite results in the static transfer of a few particles of the active. These particles absorb the protective lipid layer necessary for the insect’s survival. As a result, the insect will dehydrate.
