DuoCide provides single-application control of a variety of common lawn insects, including ticks, grubs, fire ants, mole crickets, European crane flies, and more. The product combines two professional-grade insecticides in a unique multi-mode formula to eliminate pests both above and below the lawn's surface. See the label for the complete list of controlled pests.

DuoCide features Dispersible Granule (DG) Technology, which provides easier spreading, and maximum performance. With DG Technology, the particles are more rapidly and efficiently broken down. Upon contact with water, each DG granule disperses into thousands of microparticles that move through the turf canopy into the root zone. This allows for more particles per square inch and increases DuoCide's effectiveness.

Analysis Bifenthrin + Carbaryl
Package Sizes 18 lb, 40 lb
Coverage Up to 9,000 sqft (18 lb) | Up to 20,000 sqft (40 lb)

Application rates range from 2-8 lbs/1000 sq ft and vary based on pests to be controlled. See label for complete detail.

Proper application timing depends on pest(s) to be controlled. For surface pests (ants, spiders, billbugs, chinch bugs, etc.), treat when pests or turf damage symptoms first appear. For subsurface pests (white grubs, mole crickets, june beetles, etc.), apply 10-14 days after egg-laying and/or when turf damage is first noticed. See label for complete detail.

DuoCide must be watered in immediately after application. Do not enter or allow others to enter the treated area (except those involved in the watering-in) until the watering-in is completed and the area has dried.

The spreader settings for this product were established using standard equipment available from the spreader manufacturer at swath widths and speeds typically used within the industry. Many variables such as walking speed, terrain, particle size, density, and spreader condition can affect these settings. Spreader settings are intended as a guide and unit calibration should still be performed to ensure proper application rates. They are not intended to replace calibration. The Andersons recommends the use of broadcast spreader for its products.
