Ants, Cockroaches, Silverfish, Firebrats, Spiders, Boxelder Bugs, Ticks, Lice and Fleas in animal
quarters, distribute Drione at the rate of 2 ounces per 100 square feet of surface area. Apply a
continuous visible film underneath and behind stairs, refrigerators and appliances.
Treat on, around and behind moldings, shelving, baseboards, pipe openings, cracks, crevices, and other
areas where insects hide. For severe infestations, apply Drione behind cabinets and walls, in crawl
spaces and attics at the rate of 16 ounces per 1000 square feet of surface
area. Repeat treatment as necessary.
STORED PRODUCT PESTS: To aid in the control of Cadelles, Cheese Mites, Cigarette
Confused Flour Beetles, Dark Mealworms, Drugstore Beetles, Grain Mites, Granary Weevils, Red Flour
Beetles, Rice We e v i l s , Sawtoothed Grain Beetles and Yellow Mealworms in mills, elevators and
granaries. Clean up waste materials, dust, dirt, and any other debris. Thoroughly treat floors, walls
and other surfaces in bins, storage and handling areas. Apply into cracks and crevices and other
difficult to reach areas where insects may hide.
BEES AND WASPS: It is generally advisable to treat Wasp and Bee nests in the evening
when insects are less active and have returned to the nest. Using hand or power duster or other
suitable means, with extension tubes if necessary, thoroughly dust nest and entrance and surrounding
areas where insects alight. Nests in wall voids can be located by listening with your ear against the
wall. Drill a hole in the area, blow dust in, and reseal. For best results check nests carefully one or
two days after treatment to ensure complete kill, then remove and destroy nest to prevent emergence of
newly-hatched insects. If removal is not feasible, retreat the nest if necessary. Care should be taken
when treating overhead nests so that neither the product nor the nest falls on people standing
American and Oriental Cockroach infestations in sanitary sewers
may be treated with approximately 6 ounces of Drione per manhole. When treating sewers, one manhole per
200 feet of line should be treated. Treatments are made by removing the manhole cover and replacing
with a disc of plywood bored to receive the usual flexible hose from portable or truck-mounted
ventilating equipment. 6 ounces of Drione is introduced into the ventilating air to be dispersed
quickly and thoroughly through the system.
BEDBUGS: Take bed apart. Dust into joints and channels. If hollow, such as square or
round tubing, see that the interior of framework is well dusted. Mattresses should be dusted,
especially tufts, folds, and edges. Picture frame moldings and all cracks and crevices in the room
should be treated.
DRYWOOD TERMITES: To protect against entrance, using an electric or hand operated
rotary duster, distribute Drione through an entry, e.g. crawl hole into attic and crawl space of
building, at a rate of 1 pound per 1000 square feet of floor area. All vents and blowers on the
windward side should be closed. All wood surfaces should be covered. In case of localized infestations
probe to locate galleries and drill holes to inject Drione into the galleries. If reasonably heavy
infestation has already developed, fumigation should be employed.
FLEAS: Surfaces of kennels should be dusted at the rate of one ounce per 50 square
feet. Heavily infested lawns, basements, and crawl spaces should be dusted at the rate of 16 ounces per
1000 square feet. Repeat as necessary.
