OPTIGARD FLEX LIQUID 8 OZ

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:     Optigard flex is a non-repellent insecticide that is active against insects by both contact and ingestion. It is particularly effective against social insects such as ants but can be used to control a variety of nuisance insect pests such as cockroaches, beetles, bees, earwigs, hornets, boxelder bugs, fire ants, wasps, etc.

Optigard Flex may be applied as a perimeter band, as a spot spray, as a mound drench, and to voids to control a wide range of insects. It may also be applied to trees and shrubs to control honeydew producing insects that ants use as a primary food source. Optigard Flex offers true flexibility in treating ants and nuisance insects both in and around structures because its odorless and undetectable by the target insect.

Once treatments are in place, insects will travel over the area and unknowingly pick up the active. Once its on them, they'll typically ingest some as well as share it with other members in their nest. In 1-2 days, most all of the nest will have some of the active on it. And when this happens, it's too late for the pest.

By the 3-4 day, the active will turn on and when it does, any member of the target pest exposed will die. Typically this will take another 2-4 days but within 7-14 days, any nest will be dead.

To insure good coverage for large populations with only 1-2 entry ways, be sure to spray their holes daily. Do this in the evening when they're all present inside. This way the next day the foraging workers will pick up the active and share it with other members of the colony in the coming days.

WHERE TO USE IT:    Versatile formulation that can be applied anywhere since its odorless. So both inside or outside the home; and as a liquid or foam.  Inside only to be used as crack and crevice or void treatment.  Not for surface application inside living spaces.  Outside; use it on any kind insect mound, entry points, eaves and attic vents, along sidewalks, in mulch, on landscape and ornamental plants too. Termite Monitoring Stations can also be treated… See label for complete list.

RATE OF APPLICATION: .27 to .54 Fluid ounces per gallon.  Use 2 gallons per 1,000 sq ft of Application area.

No bumble bee stings. This product is all it says it is. I had a bumble bee nest in an old junky barn and I couldn't walk in without being stung. I sprayed the barn in the evening and after about 4 or 5 days the entire nest was dead. It's great to have the barn back.

Worked like a champ! Had European Hornets. Sprayed on and around the nest and they were gone after the first application. But I used it again for a couple of nights after that first application and have not seen them since. This is seriously good stuff.

I wanted to tell you folks how happy we are with the results of using this product, Optigard Flex Liquid. I was somewhat hesitant because of the price of the product. Boy was I wrong. We had a serious bee/wasp problem on our deck, so that we couldn't go into the area without risking being stung.

I ordered the product back on July 12, received it a few days later, and then used it on our deck July 19th. Even though I didn't use an entire gallon of the mixed spray, I did thoroughly soak the top of the deck area where the bees were coming and going. I made sure to spray it more than enough to soak down between the deck boards. And then we left it alone.

Within TWO DAYS, there was literally NO bee activity. I poked into the area from the side after a week, and there was NO activity. I then left the area alone until just this past Saturday, August 6, when I checked it closely.

ALL THE BEES ARE DEAD! As I investigated, I found that the paper nest was easily the size of a watermelon!! I chopped the nest down and threw it into the woods, along with scooping up the VERY DEAD BEES!

Your product is worth every dollar! I will be using this product every spring as a preventative treatment. I will also be recommending your product whenever asked what REALLY WORKS on bees or wasps.

Thank you so much.

Amazing Product!

We were fighting a nest of European Hornets in a dying tree 20 feet off the front porch.

First week we tried wasp killer. Six cans later we gave up on that.

The next week we tried tossing gasoline from a solo cup. They hated it, but 5 or 6 direct hits later they were still going strong.

Time to get tactical. Enter the Optigard solution.

We mixed up a gallon in a pump sprayer. We *might have significantly exceeded the recommended concentration.

Next, we fit a piece of pipe insulation across the top edge of a truck passenger window and with the delivery end of the sprayer resting through a slit in the insulation we rolled up the window with the sprayer inside. Now we had a tank.

One of the boys drove up next to the tree and one of the boys manned the nozzle and one of the neighbor's kid maintained pressure in the pump sprayer.

An hour after emptying the entire gallon into the nest, we never saw another hornet in the air or on the tree but just a bunch twitching on the ground!

Game 🙂

@Raymond Bartlett: How did you find the nest???? We are in rural southern Maryland and have these buggers in the hundreds at our back door (floodlight) every night. LOVE the tank approach and we want to do same! Husband in the construction industry so we are easily ready to attack – we have 2 crepe myrtles in our backyard that these wasps have destroyed, had a professional out yesterday and he couldn't find the nest either … any suggestions????? I know they will die off (except queens, which is the concern for next year) in a few weeks but I'd love to take care of this now. We have dogs who enjoy our many wooded acres but are steering clear of the crepe myrtles cause these guys, by the hundreds, are stripping the bark … anyway. We are looking still for the nest but I'm arming with this Optiguard. And we *won't* exceed recommended concentration either ………… ! Thanks in advance! Les

OMG we received the Optigard quickly. My husband sprayed the crepe myrtle (with maybe *just* a touch more than recommended) and I swear, he sprayed one night – I did not EVER see another European Hornet on those trees and later that night, the floodlights were flooding and NOT ONE hornet. My husband sprayed the crepe myrtles a 2nd consecutive evening, I think one week later I saw ONE hornet buzz by the floodlights once, and that was it. Finding random dead hornets around the back patio near the floodlights. Sprayed again today, I think it's been about 2 weeks – this stuff is the bomb! Get it. Use it. It does work. And BTW we sprayed in the evening from about 10 feet away from the trees in a stream (not mist) and saturated them, all the trunks and most of the leaves. Again, did this as directed by tech support, 2 consecutive evenings, and again about 2 weeks later. We will do again in 2 weeks and start again in early spring. Yhank you tech support ans Optigard!
