Active Ingredient: Hydramethylnon – 1%
Around Structures – Maxforce Complete Granular Bait may be sprinkled around structures and/or applied to refillable/serviceable bait stations as outlined below. Sprinkle this product evenly in a 1 – 2 foot wide band adjacent to the structure at a rate of 0.5 oz (one tablespoon) of bait per 25 linear feet. NOTE: Around structures the total application should not exceed 4 – 8 oz per 200-400 linear feet (or 0.5 oz per 25 linear feet). A typical application would be 4 – 8 oz adjacent to an average sized home of 200-400 linear feet. Be sure to treat areas such as porches, patios, driveways, sidewalks, flower gardens, landscape timbers and around trees, wood piles, air conditioning units and garbage receptacles.
Do not use on edible food crops or on areas intended for edible food crop production. Treat visible ant trails as well as cracks or crevices where insects (ants, roaches, crickets) may enter a structure.
Refillable Stations – Maxforce Complete Granular Bait may be placed into refillable tamper resistant bait stations. Place up to 1 to 3 oz (2 to 6 Tbsp.) of bait into tamper resistant stations and close securely after application. During follow-up visits inspect placements and reapply as needed. Refillable tamper resistant stations should be placed every 20 – 30 feet around the perimeter of a structure. Use approximately 2 stations per side of a typical single family home. For best results, place stations near: air conditioning units, water faucets, foundation vents and weep holes, decks, utility entryways (e.g. electrical, cable TV) and wherever target pests are frequently found. Stations may also be placed along fence lines and property lines to intercept foraging pests. Regularly inspect all stations and replace bait as needed for continual control. Position Refillable Bait Stations in areas where they will not be damaged by lawn equipment such as mowers and trimmers. If the station is not equipped with a sticker to identify the contents, apply a sticker to the outside or inside of the station.
Interior Applications: Indoor applications are limited to areas that are inaccessible to children or pets, such as cracks, crevices, wall voids, unfinished attics, crawl spaces, refillable tamper-resistant bait stations, and behind electrical switch plates, within residential and non-residential buildings or structures and within non-food/non-feed areas of industrial, institutional, and commercial buildings. Non-food/non-feed areas include bedrooms, living rooms, bathrooms, closets, media rooms, garbage rooms, lavatories, entries, vestibules, offices, locker rooms, machine rooms, boiler rooms, garages, mop closets, and storage (after canning or bottling). Apply up to 0.5 oz (one tablespoon) of bait per crack, crevice or other inaccessible areas where insects may hide or live. Apply product using suitable application equipment (such as the Centro Bait Master.) Wipe up any loose or excess granules. Apply evenly in unfinished attics and crawl spaces at a rate of 0.5 oz per 100 sq ft only if the space is secured or otherwise inaccessible to children and domestic animals.
