We are not sure what type of worm would be considered a "red worm" as you have described. Â If you are referring to earthworms,Â Bifen ITÂ isÂ not labeled for earthworms, because they are a beneficial but it may cause harm to them if they contact a treated area. Â Though they are pretty protected by the mucus on their bodies. This small amount of product needed to kill tiny insects would not be enough to harm a bird if they were to ingest a worm that would have contacted the product.
You do want to spray Bifen IT over the sod periodically to keep the rest of the population on top of the new sod down.
We would recommend applying a product like Bifen IT in our Chapin Slide Pump Sprayer. This sprayer will reach well over 30ft. We do not carry any products that can be applied in a pressure washer for this type of insect control. You will mix the product at 1 oz per gallon of water per 1,000 sq ft monthly on the exterior. Please let us know if you need anything else.
Bifen IT cannot be used on areas that will be used for grazing by animals.
Yes, Bifen IT can be used both indoors and outdoors.
We do not recommend mixing together two pyrethroids such as Bifen IT and a permethrin product. These products are too similar, and you could create a repellency issue rather than allowing insects to actually contact the treated areas. If you want to add something to Bifen IT for faster intiial knockdown, then we suggest a pyrethrin and/or PBO product such as ExciteR Insecticide.
Bifen IT is safe for pets when surfaces are completely dry, but should not be applied in areas where there will be animals grazing.
Bifen IT will kill termites that come in contact with the chemical. To eradicate termites you want to use a product that has a transfer effect. Termidor SC is a great product to use to treat termites. Please see our Termite Control Page. Scroll to the bottom of the page and find information on identification and treatment for termites.
As long as both product labels are followed with the more restrictive one taking precedence, yes, Bifen IT can be tank mixed with herbicides.
Bifen I/T woud not be recommended for controlling bedbugs at all.
If bedbugs have been found in the home you will want to follow our detailed bedbug guide which will take you through each step necessary to completely eliminate the population. As you go through the guide linked below you will see the non chemical steps (such as washing and drying clothes and linens) as well as chemical steps including where and how to use each product. Our Bed Bug kits are the best route to make sure you are using the best products on the market and without breaking the bank. Each kit is designed to treat a different size home or number of rooms, so you can choose the one best suited to the areas you have effected by the pest problem. The kits come with all the products need to do a complete treatment in all the places bed bugs can hide and enough product to complete roughly 4 repeat applications. Since every home and infestation is different you will want to do diligent and meticulous treatments with the products every 7-14 days until you can go 30 days in a row with no signs of live bed bugs and no new bites on the occupants of the home. If you have any questions regarding info you see in our guide or the products within the kits please let us know and we would be more than happy to assist you.
