PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Odorless concentrate classified as a “non repellent” which means insects won’t know its present where applied. This means you can use this active without spooking or chasing insects elsewhere. Designed for use inside crawlspaces, under foundations and around the home, Prothor is a good active for “communal” pests like termites, ants and most any garden or turf pest around the home like grubs and beetles.
WHERE TO USE IT: Inside the home Prothor can be applied to structural members infested with wood destroying pests, wall voids and sub-slab for termite prevention. In the yard, treat the soil around the home as well as grass, mulch and gardens. Prothor can also be used as a systemic on trees and shrubs for long term control of wood boring pests and insects which target plant foliage.
RATE OF APPLICATION: When spraying it out over grass or foliage in a standard PUMP SPRAYER, add .3 to .6 oz per gallon of water.
When treating ants in the yard, add 2.5 oz to our 20 GALLON HOSE END SPRAYER and then fill the sprayer up to the 5 gallon line. Hook the sprayer to a garden hose and spray the entire tank over 5,000 sq/ft. Retreat monthly when ants are seen until they are gone. Once gone, treat every 2 months to ensure they do not return.
SOIL DRENCHING DIRECTIONS:
When soil drenching shrubs and trees, use .1 – .2 oz per inch of tree diameter. So 1-2 oz per 10″ of tree width. Add the chemical to a 5 gallon bucket filled with 3-4 gallons of water. Make 4-8 holes for every bucket you need to use so for a tree 20″ wide, you should use two buckets and 10-15 holes around the tree. Use a stake, something like rebar, to create holes 1-2 feet deep. The liquid should then be poured out over these holes slow enough so the holes will absorb the fluid evenly. Drench within the “drip line” of the tree limbs but not closer than twice the width of the trees trunk to the base of the tree. So if the drip line is 10 feet out from the trunk and the trunk is 2 feet wide. drenching 4-6 feet out from the trunk would be fine.
When treating for termites, mix 1 oz in 2 gallons of water and apply the 2 gallons of mixed solution to every 10 feet of foundation around the structure. Dig a small trench prior to treating to insure the material stays in place during the application. Retreat every 5 years.
For flower beds, plant foliage and turf, .3 to .6 oz per gallon of water per 1,000 sq/ft will control most pests.
