What are the application instructions for the Scorpion Control Kit?

For outside,how often do i need to apply this stuff to keep the little buggers away from my house and is a full 10 foot application from the foundation really needed? It seems a bit much but you guys are the experts,not me. Without splitting hairs,how much product is sufficient to mix a gallon,the tables are a bit over precise and mindnumbing with all the mils, 0.8 oz etc. Is 1 ounce per gallon close enough to keep it easy and call it done? Can't wait for dark so i can go outside and test the blacklight. Looks like a good product and the reviews seem to back it up so hopefully i'll have good luck with it too.Thanks.

Answer:

Using the Scorpion Control Kit, you will need to mix 8oz (24 ml) of Equil Lambda per gallon of water and apply to the outside perimeter of the home once every 30 days. It is recommended that you spray 3ft up the foundation and 3ft out from the foundation (10ft ban is the max that you would want to go out). When do your application, focus on the entry points to the home (windows, doors, eaves, attic vents, cracks in the foundation). If there are any shrubs, bushes, trees that touch the side of the home, cut those back so they are not touching the side of the home. This ensures the scorpions will contact the spray on the ground and not access the side of the home from a branch. Using the glue boards on the inside of the home at entry points will help you to montior where they are entering the home.

The bottle of Equil Lambda has the squeeze resevoir on it, so you simply squeeze the solution to the 8oz (24 ml) marker and pour that into your 1 gallon sprayer. You do not want to mix more than what the label recommends, you risk over treating and not getting the results that you want.
