They are commonly used in restaurants and commercial kitchens for german roach control. The pellets dissolve in water and come 10, 1.4 ounce packets in a box. Each packet makes one gallon of total solution.

Pantry Pests - Exposed Stages (Confused Flour Beetle, Indian Meal Moth, and Trogoderma): Apply Orthene PCO Pellets at 1.0% as a spot application to pantry and cupboard shelves where food containers suspected of being infested are stored. Prior to spraying, remove all foodstuffs, shelving paper and utensils. Do not replace the food packages until the surface has dried. Replace shelving paper. Infested food packages should be destroyed.

Wasps (Outdoor): Apply Orthene PCO Pellets as a spot application at 0.5% to 1.0% to the nest, nest entrance and surrounding areas where the wasps alight. Wasps are generally less active early and late in the day, so it is advisable that nests should be treated during these times. Do not apply with low pressure hand-wand equipment.

Perimeter Treatment: To control Ants (excluding carpenter, fire, harvester and pharaoh ants), Cockroaches, Pillbugs and Earwigs, apply Orthene PCO Pellets at 0.5% to 1.0% to a band of soil 6 to 10 ft adjacent to the structure, also to a height of 2 to 3 ft. on the foundation where pests may be active or may find entrance. Also, apply as a residual spray or with a paint brush to surfaces of buildings, window frames, shutters, entry ways, screens, eaves, patios, garages, carports, around garbage areas and other areas where these pests congregate. Do not apply with low pressure hand-wand equipment. NOTE: When making Perimeter Treatments, only foraging ants will be controlled. Not for use on residential turf as a perimeter treatment. Ants, Fire and Harvester (excluding carpenter and pharaoh ants) in mounds within a treated perimeter - In order to control a mound or nest, a drench treatment is necessary. For mound drench treatment, dissolve 1 packet (1.4 oz) of Orthene PCO Pellets in 9 gals of water. Apply 1 gal of mix to each mound by sprinkling the mound until it is wet and treat a 4 ft diameter circle around the mound. For best results, apply Orthene PCO Pellets in the early morning or late afternoon when ants are most active. Mound drench applications made under prolonged hot and dry conditions may be ineffective due to the location of ants deep within the nest.

Orthene PCO Pellets: An Easy To Use Pesticide 

Orthene PCO Pellets is a powerful and effective product that controls pests within industrial, institutional and commercial buildings, including restaurants, warehouses, stores, hospitals, hotels, manufacturing plants and ships. This product delivers the best results when used properly by a professional applicator. Use Orthene PCO Pellets as a 0.75% or 1.0% spray for residual pest control in areas listed by application. Use the 0.75% rate for control of light infestations on nonporous surfaces and the 1.0% spray to quickly reduce heavy infestations. Activity on porous surfaces may be limited. Repeat treatment as needed. Not for use in feed processing areas in feed handling establishments.

 

Orthene PCO is one of only two organophosphates that remain on the Pest Control market. This is important because it addresses resistance problems with synthetic pyrethroids and the need to rotate chemicals. Acephate, the active ingredient in Orthene PCO Pellets, has never been shown to have resistance. Pest control experts all agree that Orthene PCO will control roaches when nothing else will. Orthene PCO provides quick knockdown and residual that will last 8-12 weeks.

 

There are a few traits which make Orthene PCO stand out when it comes to commercial use. Orthene PCO controls insects by contact and ingestion. This is the reason an insect cannot develop resistance to acephate. It is a soluble pellet (powder). Orthene PCO leaves no visible residue, will not tie-up with grease and dirt and remains on top of grease and dirt. As a result, Orthene PCO is always present when insects crawl over the surface. Orthene PCO is completely non-repellent. Insects are clueless to its presence whereever it is applied. Due to this fact, Orthene PCO Pellets can be used with baiting programs to get rapid control of infestations.

 

CAUTION: To reduce potential odor problems, follow manufacturer’s directions. Use in well-ventilated rooms. Do not treat unpainted masonry or porous floors in poorly ventilated areas such as garages or basements, especially where moisture or high humidity exists as odor may develop. If odor occurs, dilute the dry spray residue with soap and water. Rinse area well; if odor persists, repeat process. Do not apply directly to carpet as staining may occur.

Will this hurt my dogs in my home?
Ellen T on Feb 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We would want to apply the product and keep the pets and kids off the area until it has fully dried. Once it has dried it would be fine for them to re-enter the area.
Say I mix it, use it but didn’t finish the entire gallon can I safely store it and use it another time? If so how long? Does it lose its strength?
BugsBeGone on Feb 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The max time for a mixed solution would be 24 hours. It is best to make a small batch and if we are needing more making a small batch again. By making the small batches we are making sure to use the product when it is at its best.
