    Q
    What is the best concentrate to rid mosquitoes, will use an ATV sprayer.
    A
    Bifen IT would be a great choice for mosquitoes.  The most important thing to remember when treating for mosquitoes is that they hang out on the underside of leaves and shrubs.  You should treat all shrubs, bushes and trees around the outside patio or wherever you hang out at around the house.  You should also treat the tree line in your yard near the forest if one exists.  Remember to not only treat the main bush or shrub but also the underside of the leaves.

    Q
    Bifen IT for Springtails
    I purchased this product from you at the end of last summer. I own a split level home and I have springtails crawling around on my basement floor and on the wood above the sil plate. Anyway I mixed 2 oz of bifen it to a bit less than 2 gal of water and sprayed. In less than 2 hours I have springtails crawling directly over the area that I sprayed with no ill effects. So? This is actually the 2nd time that I've sprayed. The first time the same thing occured.
    A
    Bifen IT is labeled for springtails. Depending on how healthy the springtail is and how long it spends on a surface treated by the Bifen IT, will depend on how long it actually takes for each individual one to die. It could be hours or even a day. Also, if you are not treating the main nest, and only the satellite colony, you are only be temporarily fixing your problem. More will appear as they continue to migrate and you will need to fix the moisture issue in your home that is attracting the springtails as well. Until the moisture is gone or the main nest is found and eliminated, you will have an ongoing battle with the pest.

  • Asked by James from Murray Ky

    Q
    Will Bifen IT get rid of brown recluse spiders?
    A

    Bifen IT is specifically labeled for a number of medically significant spiders including Black Widow, Brown Recluse and Hobo Spiders. It is important to remember that Bifen IT does not give an immediate knockdown but instead works over a period of several hours to kill spiders that have come into contact with the product. Bifen IT will also help to get rid of the insects that spiders feed on and that will help to stop new spiders from moving in. Indoors, spray around all baseboards, door frames, window frames, under appliances, in closets and storage rooms and in areas where utilities enter into the structure. Outdoors you should spray around the bottom of the foundation, on the ground adjacent to the foundation, door frames, window frames and places where the utilities enter into the structure. Brown recluse spiders are a bit trickier to eliminate because they often stay hidden in areas where people do not or cannot spray. We recommend that in addition to the Bifen IT, you also use glueboards in areas where spraying would not be appropriate and to help monitor the infestation (cabinets, closets, under furniture, storage areas)

    Q
    Should I continue using Bifen I/T or switch to another general purpose insecticide?
    I am currently using Bifen I/T for my exterior home spraying every 3 months. The bottle is nearly empty and I need to purchase more. Would it be best to continue with this product or switch to another product? I remember reading that insects can build up an immunity so it is good to change from time to time. I have had very good luck with Bifen I/T in getting rid of my ants and spiders. If you do recommend changing, then what do you recommend? Thanks!
    A
    It normally takes many years for insects to build a resistancy to insecticides. If you are still experiencing good results from Bifen I/T then I would recommend continuing with Bifen I/T. The price and effectiveness cannot be matched.

    Q
    Is Bifen IT safe around lake house perimeter?
    A
    Bifen IT would be safe depending on how close the house is to the actual lake as it is toxic to aquatic invertabretes so you would not want to happy where drift or runoff could go into the lake. If you are closer to the lake and runoff could be an issue, Essentria IC3 would be a better product. Essentria is safe to use around aquatic life and it will work great for mosquitoes and many other insects.

    Q
    Can I recharge Bifen IT?
    Instead of dumping the surplus mixed Bifen IT somewhere, with whatever toxicicity concerns that entails, can I just keep the mix in the jug and re-dose the old mix a month or two later with a new shot of Bifen?
    A

    No, once Bifen IT has been mixed with water it either needs to be used or discarded within 24 hours of mixing with water. Do not let Bifen IT sit in the sprayer for longer than 24 hours as the dilution starts to separate and will clog the lines of your sprayer.

    Q
    Can I spray Bifen IT inside window frames and floorboards?
    I want to treat around my home for spiders and ticks. Is it safe to spray indoors? Where is the best place to spray? Thank you.
    A

    Bifen IT is designed to be applied in window frames and other cracks, crevices and entry points of the home. Also, around the outside perimeter of your home. For ticks, you may also need to mix in an IGR like Nyguard to break down the reproductive cycle.

  • Asked by Amy from Allen, Texas

    Q
    How much to buy for an acre?
    Our house is on an acre. We are mostly fighting fire ants, flies (on flowering shrubs), spider mites, and wasps. We also have a pool which attracts flying red ants and I assume we will soon see mosquitos. Help!! Is Biden the solution for us? I have already spent too much money on professional fire ant control with little success. What is the best way to apply? Can I apply to full lawn and shrubs? Hose sprayer? Any help appreciated.
    A
    The Bifen would definitely be a great option for most of the pest you are having a problem with. You can use the 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, spider mites, wasps and regular ants. For fire ants you need to treat a little differently as they are more unique than other ants. The BEST way to control fire ants is with a professional grade bait like the Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait. It not only is a food source that they will forage for and bring back into the nest, but it also contains an IGR-birth control-to keep the queen from reproducing. This has been proven to have the most thorough results. If you don't want to use a bait you can use the bifen on the fire ants but you must follow the instructions on the label for drenching each mound with at least 3 gallons of water to get all the way to the bottom of the nest. You can see the specific instructions for this method on the Product Label.

    Q
    I am looking for a product to kill weevils on orchids. Would Bifen IT be effective and safe for my orchids?
    A
    Bifen IT is labeled for Orchid Weevils and should do a great job for you. It is always recommended that you spray only one plant to test for any sensitivity/damage before you do a complete treatment on all of the orchids. We also recommend that you speak to an expert that deals with orchids to learn more about treating weevils on orchids as orchids can be very sensitive.

  • Asked by Theresa from Colorado

    Q
    We just purchased 35 acres in San Luis Colorado, and the property is infested with big headed ants.
    We are not living on the land yet, but do camp on it, so I am not there all the times. Is there any time released treatment on the market.
    A
    Insecticide granules such as Bifen granules would be a good choice to help control the population of big headed ants as it will last for 3-4 months. Bifen Granules will kill ants that venture on to treated areas.  Another great choice would be to use Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait. This bait is also labeled for big headed ants specifically and would be a great choice for your use. Extinguish Plus combines the power of hydramethylnon with an insect growth regulator (like birth control for ants) to kill big headed ant workers and prevent queens from laying fertile eggs. This product would kill the ants that picked up the bait and also kill the ants back at the colony.
