To treat larger areas with Flex 10-10, a backpack sprayer, a hose end sprayer, or a spray rig is recommended. To apply to smaller areas or as a crack-and-crevice treatment, a pump sprayer is required.
How to Use
Step 1: Before applying product, measure the square footage of the area you want to treat. You can do this by multiplying the length and width together (length x width = square footage). This will determine the amount of Flex 10-10 you will need. The mixing rate is between 4 teaspoons and 6.4 fluid ounces per gallon of water, depending on what pest you are using this for. For general pest maintenance, we recommend 3.2 fluid ounces per gallon. For heavy or severe infestations, use 6.4 fluid ounces per gallon. One gallon of water will generally treat 1,000 square feet.
Step 2: Fill your spray tank with 0.5 gallon of water, add your measured amount of Flex 10-10, then pour the remaining 0.5 gallon of water in the tank. This ensures a thoroughly mixed solution.
Step 3: Apply Flex 10-10 to the desired area. If using with a misting or fogging machine, fine particle droplet size, such as a mist or aerosol, is preferred for maximum results. For general pest applications, spray targeted areas with low-pressure, coarse spray. Be sure to spray to the point of wet, not runoff. Spray around common entry points such as windows, doors, eaves, and where plumbing penetrates the walls. For indoor applications, you can apply product on baseboards, moldings, and floors. For bedbug treatments, lightly spray your mattress, boxspring, and bed frame joists. You will need to reapply every 10 days for a total of 30 days. Keep all people and pets off the treated area until dry.
Where to Use
Flex 10-10 can be used on corrals, drive-in theaters and restaurants, gardens, homes, parks, golf courses, playgrounds, recreational areas, and zoos. You can apply this product indoors and outdoors on many different surface areas, depending on the type of insect the product is being used on.
When to Use
Flex 10-10 can be used as soon as you notice an issue with bothersome insects. For outdoor applications, spray on calm days when wind speeds are low and rain is not in the immediate forecast. For bedbugs, it can be reapplied every 10 days for a total of 30 days.
Flex 10-10 is safe to use around children and pets when applied according to the label. Always wear the proper personal protective equipment before handling or applying Flex 10-10. Do not apply when people, pets, or food are present.
