    Q
    Should I use an IGR with Bifen IT to control roaches?
    Should I add an insect growth regulator(IGR) to Bifen IT to keep roaches and other pests out of my home?
    A
    We always recommend using an IGR such as Nyguard or Gentrol to help break the roach infestation cycle. We also recommend using a roach bait gel such as Advion Roach Bait Gel to help get rid of those roaches that harbor in areas where you cannot spray (cabinets, drawers, counters, around sinks).

    Q
    How do I apply Bifen IT on my ornamental plant to kill scale?
    I understand scale is on the bottom side of the leaves. Do I need to make sure I get the spray on the bottom side of the leaves or is spraying it on the top side enough to kill scale?
    A
    You should be sure to apply Bifen IT where it would make the most contact with the pest you are trying to treat for so if scales on the bottom of leaves, treatment should be directed there.

    Q
    How much Bifen it do I put in a hose sprayer to treat a 1000 square feet
    A
    You can use between .5 and 1 ounce per gallon of water for 1000 sqft of Bifen IT. Depending on how your hose end sprayer is set up, you would need to select one of those two rates on the dial to properly dilute it.

    Q
    Indoor application recommended for Louisiana
    I am looking to get rid of my bug man. Along with the added cost, it's really not effective. I have fleas occasionally inside. We do have a cat, but it is sufficiently treated. I always have spiders, alive and dead. All sorts of beetles and other random bugs make it through their "home barrier." Can you recommend an indoor pesticide for me to use or point me the right direction? Any info is greatly appreciated!
    A
    Bifen IT is an excellent general insecticide. It is labeled for over 75 different pests, fleas, spiders and beetles included. You will spray this around the baseboards and cracks and crevices in your home. It can also be used outdoors. It can be broadcast across your lawn, on shrubs, trees, flowers, etc. It is not labeled to be used on any type of edibles. The residual is up to 90 days indoors and 30 days outdoors. We would recommend removing your cat when you are spraying. Once the product is dry, it is safe for children and pets to return to the room.

    Q
    Bifen IT stained my floors....
    I sprayed Bifen It just under all my kitchen cabinets and now everywhere I sprayed my dark brown linoleum floor has a cloudy white stain. I've tried plain water, detergents, cleaners at diluted and full strength. Any idea how I can get this up? I did dilute the Bifen according to the instructions.
    A
    Bifen IT is a non-staining product. We would recommend contacting the manufacturer and speaking to them about the stains on your linoleum. Their phone number is 281-892-2500. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Q
    Can I spray plants during temps of 90 degrees f or more in the summer with Bifen IT ?
    I have spider mites in my dessert rose . Can I spray w/ Bifen in the summer / w/ temp 90 degrees ?
    A

    You can spray plants with Bifen IT on days with high temps but you should refrain from spraying during the heat of the day. Instead, restrict applications to very early morning or late evening. This will prevent the sun rays from scorching the plants while they are still wet.

    Q
    Which insecticide for a garden hose sprayer?
    I want to spray a large area of my yard for a variety of insects with a garden hose sprayer. I am currently using Malathion, but I was wondering if there was something better and at reasonable price.
    A
    Bifen IT would be a great choice.  You can use Bifen in a hand pump sprayer or with a hose end, although you will get more uniform and accurate coverage with a hand pump than you will a hose. You would typically mix 1 ounce to a gallon of water for all the insects in your yard and you can spray the bushes, yard, ornamentals and trees for mosquitoes, ants, spiders, and many other pests.

  • Asked by Esb from Columbus, Oh

    Q
    Can you mix Bifen IT with Mosquito Barrier for an effective monthly treatment??
    I typically use Mosquito Barrier for my business, but if I could add some of this in with the Mosquito Barrier I think the Bifen IT can make up for some of the shortcomings of Mosquito Barrier (particularly rainfall).
    A

    While you could tank mix the two, the Mosquito Barrier is going to work against the effectiveness of the Bifen I/T for probably at least the first week or two. You are spraying Bifen on surfaces moquitoes would land on and harbor in so that when they touch the treated surface they pick it up on their bodies and die from it. If you are spraying Mosquito Barrier you are using it to repel the mosquitoes away from areas you dont want them or are trying to keep them from harboring. So essentially by mixing the two together, you are repelling the mosquitoes away from the Bifen I/T so it would not affect them. Outside of an initial contact kill the mosquito barrier isn't going to provide killing action for you long term, only repellency. Bifen is actually the better product to use on a consistent basis in main target areas on the property where mosquitoes would be found, and use the Mosquito Barrier around patios and other "hangout" areas to keep them at bay until they have died from landing on the Bifen-treated surfaces.

    Q
    So where does the "much less expensive" part start?
    Everyone claims this is just like Talstar, but quote "much less expensive". It's nearly the exact same price!!
    A
    There are different sizes of Talstar P and Bifen I/T and prices can fluctuate based on fair market value at the time of purchase. If you compare the price of each product respectively to their sizes there is a substantial savings available. For example, a quart of Talstar P is priced at $36.50 right now but a quart of Bifen I/T is listed for $22.64 - That is a savings of $13.86 for the same size container!

    Q
    Could Bifen poison a chipmunk?
    After applying bifen in my back yard, next day I found a dead chipmunk. Is it a coincidence, or could bifen actually poison a chipmunk?
    A
    This is most likely a coincidence and a wild animal may have gotten a hold of the animal. If the Bifen were to affect the chipmunk it would normally mean the chipmunk got into it the mixed solution itself or maybe consumed a large amount where the surfaces you sprayed were still wet. Once the product is dry it wont harm any animals or people.

    A

    Q
    Does Bifen IT kill stinkbug eggs that are laid on windows when sprayed??
    A
    Bifen IT  is not labeled to kill stink bug eggs only the active nymphs and the adults. Most insecticides will not kill insect eggs because the outer shells of the insect eggs protect them from the insecticides.

  • Asked by Gary from Pahoa, Hi

    Q
    Does Bifen IT degrade if container is left in the sunlight?
    I left my container of Bifen IT on the side of my house for a month, where it gets a few hours of tropical sun (Hawaii). It as yellowed some, but seems otherwise OK. Will it still work or should I throw it away (properly) and buy new?
    A
    Insecticides should be stored out of extreme heat and direct sunlight. The yellowing may have been the container turning rather than the concentrate. The sunlight and heat degrade the active ingredient and greatly reduce the shelf life, so you would probably be best served using fresh product.
