To control Boxelder Bugs, Elm Leaf Beetles, Gypsy Moth Caterpillars, apply Demon Max as a 0.1% emulsion. Spray tree trunks, building siding or wherever pests congregate, thoroughly, but not to the point of run-off.
Borers and Bark Beetles: To prevent infestation of trees and woody ornamentals, spray the bark, thoroughly, but not to the point of run-off using a 0.1% Demon Max emulsion.
For residential lawns, apply Demon Max at the rate of 0.33-0.65 fl oz per 1,000 sq ft in a volume of water sufficient for uniform coverage such as 3-20 gal. Use the lower rate to knock down pests and the higher rate where faster knockdown or greater residual is desired. The maximum application rate on lawns and other turfgrass is 0.44 lb ai/A (0.0101 lb ai/1,000 sq ft). Lawn should not be longer than 3 inches at the time of application. Base need for retreatment upon monitoring for pest presence. Application in combination with compatible surfactants may enhance penetration. Arid climates generally require the higher volume. For example refer to Lawn Application Dilution Table in the Label.
Drench Method (Ant Mounds, Fire Ants): Apply 1-2 gal of 0.1% Demon Max emulsion to each mound area by sprinkling the mound until it is wet. Treat a 2 ft diameter circle around the mound. For mounds larger than 12 inches, the higher volume and wider treatment diameter (up to 4 ft) may be needed. For best results, apply in cool weather, such as in early morning or late evening hours, but not in the heat of the day.
