Permethrin Pro: for use on carpets, lawns; kills termites, powderpost beetles.
Permethrin Pro (a.i. Permethrin 36.8%): [Same as Tengard, Dragnet and Flee] This insecticide is a favorite with professionals and homeowners for general purpose
pest control (ticks, fleas, roaches, ants) as well as termite
control. Permethrin is a very safe product (when used according to the label) that
is labeled for use indoors on
carpets, outdoors on turf and ornamentals and is also one of
the best termiticides on the market.
In and Around
Permethrin Pro is approved for spraying outdoors and inside homes, but not for spraying directly on animals. Do not apply this product to dogs, cats or other animals. After treated areas are dry, people and pets can safely re-enter properly treated areas. This material is "water-safe" for fabrics and will not harm lawns, carpets, furniture, flooring or pets, when used as directed. Remember to always follow label instructions. Do not treat toys, food, water dishes or other such objects.
The high concentration means that very little product is used per
application. For fleas, roaches, ticks, ants and other indoor pests, only 1 to 1.6
ounces of Permethrin is needed per gallon. When treating outdoors for fleas, ticks,
ants, molecrickets, chinch bugs and other insects, 1 ounce of Permethrin will cover 1000
square feet of lawn. Works great in combination with IGRs such as Flea Fix.
Permethrin is available in a quart container and a five quart container.
Most homeowners need the quart size, unless they are treating their home for termites.
Permethrin For Termite Treatment: Permethrin is available in different sizes and concentrations. In general, the weaker the formulation, the less time it will remain active in the soil. Be sure to treat the entire home for best results unless you are sure there is only a small area which needs to be treated.
