    Q
    Can I use Bifen for general pest control soon after Termidor has been used in a barrier treatment?
    I am wanting to use bifen to control spiders on the corners of my home and around the perimeter. I am also in the process of using termidor in a barrier treatment for termites. Is bifen ok to use right now or should I wait a period of time after the termidor treatment
    A
    Since the Bifen will be used topically for general pest control it should not interfere with a trenching treatment done using Termidor SC.

    Q
    Once you take action spraying your home and yard, do the Springtails return? once killed are they gone for go
    are they taken care of once sprayed and treated around home and yard, what are the effects afterwards,will they return?how do you keep them gone for good???
    A
    It depends.  The whole key to getting rid of springtails is their breeding source.  You have to find it.  Usually they breed under the slab and enter the home through small cracks.  Unfortunately when they breed under the slab the product you apply on top of the ground will not make it to them.  The slab has to dry out and you have to do whatever you can to prevent moisture from getting under the slab.  Usually springtails are breeding because of too much mulch around the house, grade against the house is not going away from the house and water puddles up, downspouts are not going away from the house, etc.   Getting rid of springtails is a moisture management issue usually and not something that pesticides can get rid of alone.

  • Asked by Mort from Raleigh, Nc
    08/26/2014
    Q
    After having my house spray washed, I now have what looks like millipedes coming into the house. How do I get rid of them?
    A

    Bifen IT is labeled for millipedes and will kill them when used according to the Bifen IT product label. We recommend using 1 fl oz of Bifen IT per gallon of water for the fastest knockdown and the longest lasting residual. Millipedes are usually going to frequent areas where there are high levels of moisture. There are some non-chemical things you can do to help make your property less favorable to millipedes:

    Step 1) Non chemical Methods of Millipede Control

    Exclusion:

    • Repair cracks, crevices, and gaps around windows, doors, pipes and wires with sealant or caulk
    • Makes sure the screens and door sweeps on windows and doors are tight-fitting

    Eliminate Favorable Conditions:

    • Fix leaky faucets or pipes and dry up wet or damp areas where millipedes thrive
    • Remove outdoor harborages near the home that hold moisture (compost, wood, or leaf piles, etc).
    • Store firewood off the ground at least 20 feet away from the home
    • Water your lawn in the morning so that it will be dry by afternoon
    • Do not over mulch flower beds, since soggy mulch is an ideal harborage for millipedes

    Q
    I have used Bifen IT on the lawn for mites, but I am unsure how much to water after application.
    A
    According to the product label, you should use Bifen IT with a surfactant such as DyneAmic to control mites in the lawn. The product label also recommends irrigating the lawn with .25 inch of water after the application for lawn infesting insects.

  • Asked by Cullen from Zebulon, Nc

    Q
    If my dog eats grass that Bifen IT is sprayed and dryer on will it harm her?
    A

    Bifen IT should be applied and dried prior to the entry of the dogs. Once dry, it is safe for their return. It will not reactivate when wet again.Your dog would have to eat a lot of grass most likely to get sick, and he/she would probably get much more sick from the grass then the product.  However, of course we recommend anything you can do to minimize your dog from eating the grass.

  • Asked by Jerry
    07/16/2011
    Q
    Is Bifen IT recommended for springtails? If not, which product is best for this pest?
    Spring tails mostly appear around baseboards. Home is on a slab. Would Delta dust be more effective?
    A
    Spring tails can be tough to eliminate because they reproduce very quickly. In almost every case where people have spring tails they also have a moisture problem such as a leaking or sweating pipe, poor ventilation in their crawl space, lots of wet mulch right up next to their house, etc. You must locate and correct the moisture problem to get rid of the spring tails, insecticides alone will not do the job. We do carry Bifen L/P granules and Bifen IT liquid, both of which can help you to reduce the numbers of springtails.

  • Asked by John from Louisville ,illinois
    09/11/2014
    Q
    I'm looking for the best spray to use indoors and outdoors.
    I want the best all around product that will help me rid myself of all common bugs in and around my house without any residue left on the carpet. Currently, I'm on a quarterly program but just would like to be able to do it myself to my expectations without relying on someone else to do it when they schedule. This product needs to be pet safe also, could you advise me on which one to use? Thanks for your help
    A
    We would recommend using Bifen IT. It is a wonderful general pesticide that can be used indoors and outdoors. It dries clear as well. Indoors, you will spray along the baseboards and cracks and crevices. Outdoors, Bifen IT can be broadcast across the lawn, sprayed on trees (non edibles), flowers, shrubs, etc. This product is not labeled to be used on any type of edibles. You will mix 1 fl. oz. per gallon of water. Bifen IT has a residual of up to 90 days indoors and 30 days outdoors. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

  • Asked by Kim from Compton, Ca
    06/02/2018
    Q
    Will Bifen IT work for fleas?
    A

    Bifen IT is labeled for outside only application for fleas.  You will also need to mix in an IGR to break down the reproductive cycle. Bifen kills the adults that come in contact with it, but then you still have the immature fleas growing and then reproducing. It is a constant battle without the IGR. We recommend Nyguard as it will last up to 7 months.   Nyguard Plus would be a great choice for indoor flea control. For the most effective control, vacuum before treating and then everyday for the next two weeks, being sure to change the bag or empty the cannister immediately after vacuuming.  A second treatment should be applied after 14 days.

  • Asked by Ed from Lanett Al

    Q
    We have Noseeums in the car can we spray the carpet
    A

    Indoors, Bifen IT is only labeled to be used as a crack and crevice to baseboards, corners, storage areas, closets, around water pipes, doors and windows, behind and under refrigerators, cabinets, sinks, furnaces, stoves, the underside of shelves, drawers and similar areas. Bifen IT is great for outdoor control of Noseeums.

    Along with vacuuming the carpeted areas daily, using a product called Microcare will provide you with a fast knockdown and kill flying insects which will give you immediate relief.

    You can read our article on how to treat Noseeums here.

  • Asked by Ryan from Meridian, Ms
    05/01/2013
    Q
    Could I use a 4oz to one gallon of water solution and only have to spray my house every 6 months?
    A
    We do not recommend outside of the product label. The manufacturer states to use no more than 1 oz per 1 gallon of water. This product is a residual based product. The residual outdoors is 30 days indoors 90 days. Even if you were to use 4oz, you would still need to reapply per the product label of 30 to 90 days.

    Q
    Can you mix Bifen IT with cedar wood oil?
    I am trying to keep our property as organic as possible. We tried using cedar wood oil last year to control the mosquitoes and it definitely helped to knock the population down but not to a level we would like. Can we mix a smaller portion of the Bifen IT with the cedar wood oil and then spray with the Solo 451?
    A
    While you can spray Cedar Oil and Bifen IT in the same place for mosquito control we do not recommend mixing the products together. Bifen IT is water based and will not mix with the cedar oil and it could cause the products to be unstable and could also cause clumping which will clog your sprayer.
