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 and outside 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, beetles and more. Keep in mind, its effective on bees so great for digger bees or wasps but if you have beneificial bees you don’t want to impact, do not spray the plants they like to visit.
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: Add .3 to .6 oz per gallon of water when spraying turf or plant foliage. When soil drenching shrubs and trees, use .1 – .2 oz per inch of tree diameter. Email for more specific mixture rates; the label is hard to decipher but if we know the size of the shrub, tree or yard you want to treat, we can help calculate how much you’ll need along with making recommendations as to what will be the best sprayer to use for the job.
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.
TARGET PESTS: Adelgids, Ants, Aphids, Billbugs, Carpenter Ants, Chafers, Chinch Bugs, Cutworms, Grubs, Japanese beetles, June Beetles, Lace bugs, Leaf beetles (including elm and viburnum leaf beetles), Leafhoppers (including glassy- winged sharpshooter), Leafminers, Mealybugs, Oriental Beetles, Psyllids, Sawfly Larvae, Thrips (suppression), Weevils, Whiteflies, Wood Borers and Woolly Adelgids just to name just a few.
