Application Method

Method of Application General Description


Hardscape/Impervious Surfaces V/S Soil/Mulch Areas


Uniform application of a pesticide to an entire area

Crack and Crevice Treatment

Application of small amounts of pesticide into cracks and/or crevices in which pests hide or through which they may enter a building. Such openings commonly occur at expansion joints, between elements of construction and between equipment and floors.

Direct Spray

Application may specifically target pests by such as an insect nest and minimizes pesticide contact with non-target plants and animals

Drill & treat

Drill into concrete and treat beneath floor areas at cracks & expansion joints to eliminate infestation under concrete slab.


Protecting an area against pest access either by mechanical alteration (physical exclusion) or by rendering access points and harborage impassable via chemical repellency (chemical exclusion)

Perimeter Treatment

Application to the border or outer boundary of an area. It can be applied as a perimeter barrier; application to building foundations, up to maximum height of 3-feet and 3- feet band around your home having soil & vegetation around structures.

Perimeter Treatment

Flat-fan nozzle

Adjust the nozzle on the sprayer until you have a coarse (flat fan nozzle), low-pressure spray.Flat fan produce a fan type spray pattern. These patterns provide an even coat of spray


Application of pesticide mixed with a foaming agent to areas such as voids


Application of a fumigant to a structure or enclosed space at a specified concentration and exposure period

General Spray
General Spray

Application to broad surfaces such as walls, floors and ceilings.


Application of a pesticide suspension of a finely divided liquid in a gas common in mosquito and other flying insect control.

Monitoring & Trapping

Technique of capturing pests as a means to identify, quantify or control adult stages of an infestation.


Application of a liquid pesticide by brushing or swabbing.


Application by placing or arranging the pesticide which is common in the use of self contained bait stations, gel bait applications, fly baits, and many rodenticides.

Rod & Treat
Rod & Treat

Rod injection of chemicals application of pesticide directly on or in the soil

Space treatment
Space treatmentSpace treatment

Application of pesticide is dispersed into the air by foggers, misters, aerosol devices or vapor dispensers in an enclosed area for control of flying pests and exposed crawling pests.

Soil treatment

Application of pesticide directly on or in the soil

Spot Treatment (Not Greater than 2 square feet)

Spot Treatment

Application to small, distinct areas on which pests are likely to occur. These areas may include floors, walls, bases or undersides of equipment. A “spot” should not exceed two square feet.

Sprinkle or Scatter

To distribute in drops or particles. Commonly used for granular products.

Sub Area Trench & Treat

Trench and treat around piers and all wall areas in the sub areas of structures.

Trench & Treat
Trench & Treat

Trench and treat adjacent to the edges of concrete slabs. This is common entry point of termites.

Void treatment

Application to wall and equipment voids. Utilize injection tips for applications into harborage cracks & crevices.
