    Q
    Will Bifen IT kill voles if sprayed directly on them?
    Will it kill snakes if they eat the dead bugs?
    A

    Bifen IT will not kill voles or snakes and should not be applied directly to them as they are not targeted species. It should not harm snakes if they consume insects which contacted the insecticide. We do offer snake repellents and products for vole control. Bifen IT will only kill listed pests.

  • 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 Kit from Chandler, Az
    06/03/2018
    Q
    Can I mix Bifen I/T with Onslaught FastCap Spider & Scorpion Insecticide?
    A

    There is no valid reason to mix synthetic pyrethroids such as Bifen IT and Onslaught Fastcap together.  This would not make either product work better or produce better results.  However, it could make treated areas repellent to bugs, lessening the effectiveness of the treatment.  Neither product can do its job of killing insects if the insects are avoiding the treated areas.

    Q
    Will Bifen IT affect the butterflies in my yard?
    A

    Bifen IT is not labeled for beneficial insects like butterflies.  However, it is not really selective so it has the potential to kill them if they come in contact with a treated area.  To avoid contacting beneficial insects, apply in the early morning or late evening when they are less active in the area.

    08/26/2018
    Q
    What if a cat steps in the wet mix of Bifen IT on concrete and licks her paws? Will it poison the cat?
    A

    Keep in mind that, when used as directed, Bifen IT is diluted at 1 oz. per gallon of water. This is only a large enough amount active ingredient to kill small insects. This small amount should not be harmful to your cat. Rule of thumb is to keep pets out of the treated area for about 1 hour to allow it to dry.
