    Great knock down and what I buy it for sure beats the cost of Bifenthrin. However it does stink. This can be an advantage when the homeowner asks "Did you spray my yard?" Sure just stick your head out the door and smell it.

    Price per gallon is higher, But cost per thousand is much lower.

    Gotta love those xylene range distillates. Faster, smellier & a little hotter but way more effective than their water based counterparts.

    Really?

    Are you sure irrigation was left off for 2 days, and you timed the app when Larve were present?

    I live in central Florida this time of year it rains every day without fail at 4:00 pm. The only proble I have with it is sod web worms been at the fert and squirt game for 14 years now and is the only product I have seen a failure in sod web worms. It kills the larve fine but no residual effect against them. They spread very quickly here.
