See product label for precautions when using the product. Always cover goldfish bowls before applying. Shake Hawkeye Flea, Ant, and Roach (FAR) Spray before using. Add 40ml of product per litre of water (e.g. 200ml per 5 L of water) in an appropriate sprayer. Close the sprayer and mix spray solution thoroughly. When applying make sure you don’t spray to the point of, or past run off. Treated areas should always be ventilated for at least 2 hours before re-using area. To do this, open windows and doors (if possible) and allow outside air to flow through the treated area.
If using to control Fleas
Liberally spray the along the perimeter of all the walls and cover your floor area especially pet resting areas, carpets, behind furniture and other areas where fleas have been spotted. Remove cushions from furniture and apply Hawkeye FAR Spray in the crevices. Wait at least 2 hours before vacuuming. Lightly spray over all other soft furnishings where ﬂeas may be harbouring ensuring areas under furniture receive treatment, e.g. carpets, couches etc. The amount of spray mix that needs to be applied depends on the depth of carpet pile and other soft furnishings coverings. Good coverage is essential to cause contact with fleas that may be harboring lower in the carpet pile. Always ensure an area has been treated and ventilated before letting your pet back in.
If you have a heavy infestation, treat outdoor areas as well, especially under decks, around vegetation, and anywhere your pets like to hang out. Thoroughly spray all affected areas, concentrating on moist and shaded spots such as under shrubs and decks. Repeat the treatment every two to three weeks for six weeks or until fleas are under control. Once you have the flea problem under control you can move to a maintenance schedule of treating every four to six weeks until completely eradicated.
It is advisable to treat your home and yard for fleas on the same day and it is very important to deflea your pets with an registered flea treatment to ensure you break the flea cycle. This can be done with Hawkeye FAR Spray, Hawkeye Spider and Insect Spray or Hawkeye Ant Spray for more residual control. Daily vacuuming for 2-3 weeks following the treatment will ensure that hidden flea eggs do not hatch to create a new infestation. Also make sure after vacuuming that you empty the contents and remove them from the house, so the fleas don’t just escape out of the vacuum bag back into your home.
If using to control indoor Ant problems
Apply Hawkeye FAR Spray into crevices along baseboards and around all openings in the home such as windows, doors frames and patio sliders where ants are seen. Spray ant trails where ants are walking with a band that extends 5cm either side of the trail to the point of, but not past run oﬀ. Spray likely ant trailing and foraging areas to the point of, but not past run oﬀ. Applying a combination of Hawkeye Ant Bait Gel along with Hawkeye FAR Spray is the best method to effectively eradicate the whole nest. Apply Hawkeye Ant Bait Gel according to its use instructions alongside existing ant trails. Accidental overspray of Hawkeye FAR Spray over the top of Hawkeye Ant Bait placements will not cause any negative effects, because they contain the same active ingredient.
For outdoor ant trails Hawkeye Ant Spray is recommended for effective and long term control in the outdoor environment.
If using to control Cockroaches
Carefully inspect the house or infested property, for roach infestation and treat preferred harbourage locations, such as under refrigerators, ﬂoorboards, ovens or behind skirting boards or architraves. Be sure to spray any aggregations or areas with faecal spotting. Avoid spraying walls, floors, baseboards and countertops since cockroaches spend very little time in these areas. It is recommended to apply Hawkeye Roach Bait at the same time as Hawkeye FAR spray for the best results, especially if the infestation is heavy. Accidental overspray of Hawkeye FAR Spray over the top of Hawkeye Roach Bait placements will not cause any negative effects, because they contain the same active ingredient
If using to control Paper Wasps
Ensure you are treating a paper wasp nest and not a German or Common Wasp as these latter two wasps have significantly larger nests and are much more aggressive towards people. Spray the paper wasp nest directly, thoroughly saturating the nest and any wasps present early morning or after sunset when most adults have returned to nest and are not very active. While paper wasps do not show any reaction to being sprayed with Hawkeye FAR Spray it is recommended to cover your face and wear an extra layer of clothing while treating the nest.
While it is not essential for all wasps to have returned to the nest prior to application, a faster result will occur if all wasps have returned and are resting on the nest. By thoroughly saturating the nest with spray solution you will ensure any wasps not present at the time of application are still exposed to the active ingredient when they return.
