    Q
    Will the Bifen IT kill the redworms in my yard or make the worms poisonous to my birds if the eat the worms?
    A

    We are not sure what type of worm would be considered a "red worm" as you have described.  If you are referring to earthworms, Bifen IT is not labeled for earthworms, because they are a beneficial but it may cause harm to them if they contact a treated area.  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.

    Q
    If possible, I would like to also treat for spiders and ants. Is all of this possible with one solution?
    I have a 3 story building with hard to reach places around the soffit. I have a problem with carpenter bees/wasps and the soffit around the building is wood. I would like to be able to treat the building using a solution that can be applied with a PRESSURE WASHER to reach the areas not easily accessible with a ladder. It would be great if I could spray down the building with one solution.
    A

    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.

    Q
    How do you rid of Carpenter ants
    I have some carpenter ants in some rotted wood on the Corner of my porch, what can I do to get rid if them?
    A
    You could use phantom in that area and around the perimeter of your home 2-3 feet up and out. Phantom works well to eradicate carpenter ant colonies, because the active is transferred by the worker ants into the colony.

  • Asked by Dorothy from Pittsburgh, Pa.

    Q
    I have been trying to kill springtails w/1oz/gal of BifenIT on my deck. Should this kill on contact?
    I know I have to look for and remove sources of moisture. I have sprayed 3x today and each time I look they seem to have come back. I just want to make a dent in their population numbers for now. Does it take a while for the BifenIT to work?
    A
    We only recommend applying Bifen IT as labeled, which would be once every 30-60days. Over application could cause the insects to become irritated and rapidly reproduce. Bifen IT will kill with in a matter of minutes.

  • Asked by Dennis
    06/17/2019
    Q
    Can Bifen IT and permethrin be mixed together?
    A

    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.

    Q
    Can I safely mix Bifen IT with Cyzmic CS?
    A

    Bifen IT and Cyzmic CS should not be mixed together. It is not necessary to apply two synthetic pyrethroids in the same area. It will not improve results.

    Q
    Will Bifen IT hurt my mini pigs if they eat grass a day after applying?
    I just want to make sure this won't harm them if I let them eat grass where Bifen has been sprayed, maybe a day or two after spraying. They are usually out on the grass for 30-45 mins a day.
    A

    Bifen IT is safe for pets when surfaces are completely dry, but should not be applied in areas where there will be animals grazing.

    Q
    Is Bifen IT safe to use around baseboards in a bedroom?
    They are coming up between the carpet and the baseboard in the bedroom. We have recently used Bifen granules outside and sprayed the walls and ground at the wall with Bifen IT. Now, I have found a few in the closet. They do fly. We have air-conditioning and the carpet is dry.
    A

    Bifen IT is safe to apply inside along baseboards and in cracks and crevices around the home as directed on the product label.

    Q
    Does Bifen IT work on Termites?
    A

    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.

    Q
    Will Bifen IT kill bed bugs?
    Will Bifen IT kill and eliminate bed bugs and their eggs?
    A

    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.
