    Q
    I used Diazinon for years. Do you have an equivalent product?
    I sprayed for ticks, mosquitoes, and general yard insects. It was very effective. I have tried several products since and nothing works as well. Your suggestions?
    A

    Yes, we do have products that are comparable to Diazinon since it has been outlawed due to safety regulations. We would recommend Bifen IT. It is great for indoor and outdoor use. Indoors, you will spray along the baseboards and cracks and crevices. It lasts for 90 days. Outdoors, you can broadcast across your lawn, spray along the perimeter of your home, on flowers and also ornamentals. This lasts for 30 days outside. This product is not labeled to be sprayed on edibles. It is labeled for ticks, mosquitoes and various other pests as well.

     

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

    Q
    Should you use a surfactant when spraying with Bifen IT?
    A
    Bifen IT does not require a surfactant to be used for it unless you are treating for certain pests. According to the product label, if you are treating for mites and/or spider mites, the addition of a surfactant may increase the effectiveness of Bifen IT. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

  • Asked by Jeff from Fouke, Ar
    07/12/2015
    Q
    Would it be better to treat with Bifen IT or Bifen XTS for my cypress trees that are covered with bagworms in cocoons?
    How much do you mix per gallon for best results?
    A

    Bifen IT is a good choice for bagworm control.  The product label recommends mixing at the rate of 1 oz per 1000 sq ft in approximately 1 gallon of water. Bifen XTS is an oil-based insecticide that is only for outdoor use, while Bifen IT is water-based and has a broader label.  However, it is important to start control methods before infestation occurs. Once the bagworms have matured and have formed the "bag" most chemical control methods will no longer work.

    Once the bags have formed, you can manually control bagworms by simply plucking them off of the infested trees and dropping them into a bucket of soapy water or squishing them.

  • Asked by Charlie from North Carolina
    06/19/2013
    Q
    I recently purchased Bifen IT for mosquito control.
    I plan to use a fogging attachment on my lawn blower to apply the product. Can you provide me the dilution ratio or application rate per 1,000 SQ FT?
    A
    Bifen IT can only be applied in spray form when applying for insects. Hand pump and backpack sprayers, hose-end sprayers and motorized "mist blowers" like the Solo 451 can be used to apply the Bifen and similar insecticides. Bifen can not be used in any type of fogging equipment whether thermal/propane, ULV or fogging attachment. In any of the approved applicators, you would mix Bifen at the rate of 1 ounce per gallon of water to roughly every 1000 sq/ft. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    Q
    Does Bifen IT work well for clover mites?
    I have tons of little red bugs (I'm assuming are clover mites) all over my wooden patio fence and furniture. Will this work to get rid of them?
    A

    Bifen IT is labeled to treat for clover mites when used accordingly. Clover mites are barely smaller than a pinhead. You may notice clover mites as dark red moving specks which occur in large numbers. They are generally found crawling aroudn doors, windows, sidings, curtains, or furniture. Be sure to treat the ground at least 5-10 feet from the structure where you are seeing the clover mites.

    Q
    Can you use Bifen IT to kill German roaches in a house?
    A

    Bifen IT is labeled for roaches can be used to help eliminate a roach infestation.  However, it should not be the only product that you use as roaches are difficult to treat and usually more than one type of product is necessary.  We would recommend using one of our Roach Control Kits to ensure that you have everything you need.  You may also want to take a look at our Roach Control Guide for more information on implementing a complete treatment program.

    06/20/2013
    Q
    Have been using Bifen IT with good results for pests, but could you recommend something with a quick knockdown?
    A
    The ExciteR Insecticide is specifically designed to be added to any insecticide you are already using to provide you with a much stronger and faster initial knock down, while the Bifen continues to give you the longer lasting residual. However, we may be able to give you a more accurate product recommendation if we know what pest in particular you are treating for and wanting a quicker knock down with. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    Q
    Can Gentrol IGR and Bifen IT be mixed together?
    A
    Absolutely.  Gentrol IGR can be mixed with any insecticide concentrate and be applied at the same time, including Bifen IT.  However, when mixed with an insecticide concentrate like Bifen IT you are limited on where you can apply the Gentrol IGR since you can only spray in areas where the Bifen IT is permitted to be applied according the label instructions.

    Q
    Will Bifen IT kill stink bugs inside my home and garden?
    A

    Bifen IT is labeled for stink bugs. You can use it indoors and outdoors but it is not labeled for use in a vegetable garden.  We suggest using Hi-Yield Indoor/Outdoor Broad Use Insecticide with 10% Permethrin. It  can be used on certain edible vegetation not grown for sale. Please take a few minutes to read the product label to see if the plants you need to treat are listed.

  • Asked by Paul from Latrobe Pa.
    05/05/2015
    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.
