Perma-Guard Fire Ant D-20
USE WET OR DRY
For control of: ants and fire ants.
Perma-Guard Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is EPA approved and registered for use against indoor and outdoor crawling insects, including cockroaches, ants, bedbugs, fleas, boxelder bugs, carpet beetles, centipedes, crickets, earwigs, grasshoppers, ticks, millipedes, scorpions, slugs, and silverfish. For use in Cracks, Crevices, Hiding and Running Areas, Under and Behind Appliances, and Wall and Floor Surfaces. For use in and around homes, office buildings, restaurants, motels, warehouses, theaters, schools, hotels, and food handling establishments.
DE is odorless and nontoxic.
DE is composed of finely milled fossilized shells of minuscule organisms called diatoms. The microscopically fine, sharp edges desiccate the insects' exoskeleton upon contact and the pests dehydrate and die within hours. The insects also die when they eat the dust.
Dry Powder: Stir the mound with a rake or other tool, agitating the ants. Apply Perma Guard Fire Ant Insecticide dust liberally on the immediate area, contacting as many ants as possible. Repeat if needed for final results.
Wet Application: Use one-half cup of Perma Guard Fire Ant Insecticide with a teaspoon of mild detergent per gallon of water. Saturate the mound or bed with the entire gallon of mixture. Repeat if necessary.
Mix four tablespoonfuls to one-half cup of Perma Guard Fire Ant Insecticide with a teaspoon of mild detergent in a gallon of water. Stir the fire ant mound with a rake or other tool to agitate the fire ants. Drench each individual fire ant mound with a gallon of the mixture. Repeat treatment if needed.
Dry Powder: For faster knockdown! Stir the fire ant mound with a rake or other tool agitating the ants. Apply Perma Guard Fire Ant Insecticide liberally on the immediate area, contacting as many ants as possible. Repeat treatment as needed.
