When to Apply it
For best results Use Ortho® Bug B Gon® Insect Killer as soon as you get the first sign of infestation or as soon as your plants start growing so that it can protect it throughout the growing season.
Apply Ortho Bug-B-Gon Max on a calm day to prevent spray drift. Spray it in early morning or late afternoon if the temperature is expected to exceed 80 degrees Fahrenheit. I prefer to spay mine late evenings because that is usually when most insects are active and the temperature is cool and it also reduces the probability of someone or pets going into the garden or lawn after I spray.
If you plan to spray it on your lawn, it is advisable to mow and water the lawn the day before spraying it. If you spray your lawn, don’t mow it until at least two days after
Dress properly before you apply Ortho Bug-B-Gon Max. Wear gloves, long-sleeved shirt, long pants and closed-toe shoes or boats. change your clothes and wash your hands after you finish using Ortho Bug-B-Gon. if any part of the Skin come in contact with the chemical, wash it off and follow instructions on the label.

Never allow the substance to run into storm drains, drainage ditches or gutters. if it is predicted to rain with 24 to 48 hours don’t use it.
Read the instructions on how long after spraying can the vegetable be harvested.
Many fruits and vegetables are safe to eat three days after the product is applied to them, but some aren’t safe to eat until seven or more days have passed.
even though it is safe to harvest my plants after 1 week, I usually wait about 2 weeks before I harvest and consume my vegetables.
