PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Sand like treated granules designed to last throughout rain and sun when applied to turf around the home. Once applied, the the active will release slowly over 30-45 days. During this time, dirt dwelling insects will be controlled and eradicated.
ACTIVATION: No special “activation” is required once applied. If you’re spraying our MAXXTHOR EC over the area with granules, the watering in of the Maxxthor will effectively initiate the process. If using the granules only, normal rainfall, watering the yard or just regular levels of humidity will get them released over 30 days.
** REMEMBER MAXXTHOR GRANULES ARE DESIGNED TO RELEASE SLOWING AND PERCOLATE DOWN INTO THE DIRT TARGETING GROUND DWELLING PESTS. LIQUID TREATMENTS WITH MAXXTHOR EC ARE DESIGNED TO GET PESTS ON TOP OF THE SOIL SO EVERYTHING ABOVE GROUND **
Think of granules as part of the 1-2 punch required to control a range of pests around the home including what you see on the list below. That being said, they’re designed to release slowly so they WILL NOT KILL QUICKLY but instead are designed to target the developing stages deep down in the ground. For anything above ground, you must use our liquid sprays!
TARGET PESTS: Just about everything including ants, centipedes, clover mites, fleas, fire ants, millipedes, mole crickets, psocids, ticks, springtails, pillbugs, sowbugs, crane flies, turf weevils, webworms, billbugs, chinch bugs and more.
WHERE TO USE IT: For use around the home in flower beds, grass, pine islands and mulch areas.
RATE OF APPLICATION: Conveniently packaged in 11 plastic jugs, 1 lb will treat 500-1000 sq/ft. So each jug can treat 5,500 to 11,000 sq/ft.
So lets say you wanted to treat a 10 foot band around your homes perimeter and each side of the home is 50 feet wide. You would need about 1/2 to 1 lb per side.
This short video (less than 1 minute long) provides a great tip from a customer on how you can easily apply these without using a spreader.
The rule to follow for the rate is to use 1 lb per 1,000 sq/ft if you are targeting pests in the ground like springtails, grubs or mealybugs.
For large crawling pests like ants, centipedes, ticks or sowbugs, use 2 lbs per 1,000 sq/ft.
This short video (less than 1 minute long) explains why we can’t recommend any setting on a brand of granule spreader we don’t know and even for the ones we carry, we always recommend you start with the lowest setting possible.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD IT BE APPLIED: This will vary depending on the local weather and pest problem. So for initial infestations, renew the granules once a month until they’re gone. Once the problem is under control, treat once every 3 months to make sure the problem pest does not return.
