DIRECTIONS FOR USE
How to Use Maggie's Farm Home Bug Spray
Always read label directions and precautions prior to use. Shake well before use and periodically during use. Ready-to-use. Do not dilute. This product can be used indoors and outdoors.
Note: Don’t use this product in the same area where you’ve used a Maggie’s Farm insect bait. Baits work by the insect eating them.
Spray Nozzle Adjustments: The spray nozzle has a wide mist setting and a narrow straight stream setting. The mist setting is best when spraying a larger area and for covering a number of insects from fairly close range. The straight stream setting is best for spraying from a distance, at a nest, or injecting into cracks or wood-destroying insect tunnels and galleries.
Crawling Insect Treatment: To kill ants, cockroaches, bed bugs, crickets, earwigs, firebrats, pillbugs, silverfish, spiders and other crawling insects, spray as many insects as possible. Spray until damp, but not running off. You can also treat areas where pests tend to land, rest, or hide. Repeat as necessary.
Flying Insect Treatment: To kill flies, gnats, mosquitoes, moths and other flying insects, direct spray at flying insects and contact as many as possible. Repeat as necessary.
Bed Bug Treatment: To kill bed bugs, apply as a spot treatment in sleeping areas by using the straight stream nozzle setting and inject the product in cracks around baseboards, floorboards, doors and window frames. Use the mist nozzle settings to apply as a surface spray to carpets, floor coverings, and rugs around sleeping areas. Spray until wet but not soaking. To treat beds, remove bedding, wash and dry in high heat. Make spot treatments using the stream nozzle setting and inject into cracks and crevices on bed frame, headboard and footboard. Apply to tufts, seams and edges on mattress and box springs only. Do not apply to entire surface of mattress or box springs. If the product scent is objectionable, do not apply to the mattress as it may take a few days to dissipate. Allow the spray to dry before using the mattress. For persistent infestations, consult a pest control specialist.
Outdoor Perimeter Applications: To apply as a perimeter barrier treatment, remove debris and leaf litter from around the foundation, cut back vegetation and branches that touch the house and remove or rake back deep mulch, rocks or other potential pest harborage sites next to the foundation. Apply in a 2 to 3 foot band on the foundation. Also apply around window frames and doorways, around vents, openings where utilities enter the home, and other possible pest entry points.
Carpenter Ants: The most effective control for any ant species is to locate and treat the nest(s) if possible. When you find a nest, spray until wet with the product. Repeat if there is still activity a day or two later. If carpenter ants have infested wood or wall voids, use straight stream nozzle setting and inject the product through an existing opening or drill a small hole(s) so that you can reach the nest with the product.
Other Wood-Infesting Insects - Beetles and Borers, Termites, and Wood Wasps: Find areas where pests have infested including tunnels, galleries, and cavities, and using the straight stream nozzle setting, inject product until the area is moist. Drill small holes 8-10” apart in the infested area to be sure galleries can be treated thoroughly.
For Carpenter Bees: Treat the entrance holes and then plug with stainless steel wool. For termites, this product is only a supplemental treatment to kill workers and winged swarmers that are present in the area when you treat. It is not a substitute for a professional treatment. For any infestation of a wood-destroying pest where structural damage has occurred or could occur, we recommend you contact a pest control specialist.
We don't need anything else
My wife and I love this product. It works quickly and effectively. It is all we use inside and outside of our Texas home.
We like this!
Husband sprayed some on a bug and it died immediately. We like the scent; it's easy to breathe and pleasant.
Been using this particular product for many years. Stores don't *always* have it in stock (seasonal?) - but that doesn't matter with the high speed shipping we received when we purchased direct.
I have ants in my car. I didnt want to use raid because of how harmful it is in such a small space. I'm afraid that baiting them will just bring in more. I found Maggies killer/repeller spray and it seems to be killing anything it touches when the product is first sprayed...and seems to be pushing anything that is alive to go to the outside of my car for at least the next day. I have just begun using this so I am hopeful that it will continue to do this. I dont love the smell, so I only spray it when I will be out of my car for some hours.
