How do I control wood-infesting pests with Bayer Advanced™ Home Pest Plus Germ Killer Indoor & Outdoor Insect Killer?

  • For control of termites and wood-infesting beetles found above ground, apply to voids and holes in damaged wood, and in spaces between wooden structures and between the sill plate and foundation where wood is exposed.
  • Apply spray to exposed worker and winged reproductive forms of termites. This type of application is intended to be a supplemental treatment for control of drywood and above-ground subterranean termites and other wood-infesting insects. It is not intended as a substitute for soil treatments for termite control.
  • For control of swarming or reproductive stages of termites, apply a coarse spray to the swarm or area on which they collect.
  • For control of carpenter ants around houses and other structures, apply around doors and windows and other places where carpenter ants may enter the premises. Spray into cracks and crevices or voids where these ants or their nests are present. Use a sufficient amount of coarse spray to cover the area.
  • For control of carpenter bees in structures, spray the liquid directly into bee entrance holes. Leave the entrance holes open for 24 hours to be certain that returning adult bees are killed. When there is no activity, the hole may be sealed with a suitable sealant.

  • We do not recommend applying Bayer Advanced Home Pest Control Indoor & Outdoor Insect Killer to furniture.
