Bifenthrin Granules or Wisdom Granules (both the same product) have the same exact label as the very popular Talstar PL Granules.

Active Ingredient: Bifenthrin - 0.20%


Bifen LP Granules and Talstar PL Granules are used to control Ants (including Imported Fire Ants), roaches, spiders, fleas, ticks, worms, crickets, and almost all other insect pests on lawns, in landscaped areas and gardens, and perimeters of residential, institutional, public, commercial and industrial buildings, parks, recreational areas and athletic fields. Bifen granules release chemical over time as it rains. One application of Bifen granules can protect your lawn areas for 2 to 3 months. It is safe against non-target animals such as birds, pets, and other mammals.


Bifen LP Granular is generally used in two ways: It can be applied as a perimeter barrier directed in a five to ten foot band around your home, or it can be generally broadcast over your entire yard including landscaped areas. A normal application usually consists of three to five pounds of product. We recommend applying Bifen granules with an Earthway spreader. One 25lb. bag of Bifen covers 5,000-10,000 square feet. Always read the label.

Active Ingredient Rate per Acre 0.2 - 0.4 lbs. ai/A
Bifen Rate per Acre 100 - 200 lbs.
Bifen Rate per 1000 sq ft 2.3 - 4.6 lbs.

    Bifen Granules

    By Nancy on 04/26/2010

    Verified Purchase

    I ordered this product because my son had a very bad case of Springtails. They were in his house along the side of the house where the a/c was outside. We tried the liquid and also several bags of the granules. They got rid of them and now my son swears by this product. He says it kills all kinds of insects in his back yard which borders on a large forest in Tennessee. I just reordered two more bags for this year. It is wonderful and would recommend it to anyone.

    Bifen Granules are Fantastic!

    By Lori on 03/04/2014

    Verified Purchase

    The past two years have been awful for me with pests. First it was clover mites and then springtails, not to mention ants, etc. I live in the country and have been here for 31 years. Never had a problem, or bad problem until two years ago. Nothing including pest control helped. Such a waste of money. So I came here and asked a question... I tried the BifenIt spray which worked great, but still not enough. So I ordered the granules and put this down last year for the first time. Thats all it took. All problems gone!!! Just ordered a bag for this spring and summer. My neighbor who knew what I was going through saw my results and now has canceled his pest control and is going in with me to order what we need and we do it three times a year. Last year, not one bug for either one of us!! If you are having a problem look no further then this site. Ask your question. They will lead you to the right decision!

    Awesome flea product

    By Cheryl on 01/22/2011

    Verified Purchase

    We've been using these granules for the past year and have had no recurrences of fleas. Hooray! We faithfully mow the grass before each application and have only applied once every three months, continuously throughout the year. This product works great. Highly recommend to anyone who has a flea infestation.

    Goodbye springtails!

    By Tony on 07/06/2010

    Verified Purchase

    I tried everything else, believe me, and nothing worked on those pesky little Springtails except this. I first applied the Bifen liquid in a near perimeter around my home and in my crawlspace, then treated the yard in a wider perimeter with these granules. No more Springtails at all!  As a bonus, no more black ant invasions in the summer and for the first time my trees are free of those same ants. I tried many big-box-store products to no avail and began to research out of desperation. I am very glad I decided to try Bifen.

    By Ec on 04/18/2007

    This stuff worked wonders for us last year. We used the Bifen granules all year to keep the fire ants away.

Will a large amount of rainfall decrease effectiveness of the Bifen Granules?

I put down a 10 foot wide barrier of Bifen granules in the lawn around our house to keep carpenter ants from entering. I planned to take advantage of natural rainfall to water the granules into the lawn. Unfortunately, what was forecast to be rain showers turned out to be 4 inches of rain as measured in our rain gauge. I don't think the water actually ran off and took the insecticide with it. However, will just the large amount of rainfall decrease its effectiveness in the soil? Should I apply another treatment?

A large amount of rain fall should not take away the effectiveness of Bifen Granules. especially if there was no run off. You would want to reapply in 2 months time.

What number do I use for a Scotts Speedy Green rotary spreader for application of Bifen Granules?

We don't have the exact spreader setting for your model spreader. The easiest way to determine the correct setting to apply Bifen Granules is as follows:

If you need to use 3lbs of product per 1,000 sq ft you would add 3 lb of product to spreader, start with a medium setting, then apply product to a 20 x 50 ft area (1,000 sq ft).  If you have product left, your setting is too low.  If you run out of product, your setting is too high

Will the Bifen Granules kill sod webworms?

I purchased two 25 lb bags from you after speaking to a rep on chat. One of my neighbors said the granules would not work on the eggs. Have I wasted 60 bucks or will the granules work?


Bifen Granules will kill sod webworms and is one of the most popular ones for them.  It will not kill the eggs, though, and no product will do so.
