    Q
    Will Bifen IT kill slugs?
    Slugs on the decks, crawling up the sliding glass doors. Nasty. Thanks for your help.
    A

    Bifen IT is not labeled to control slugs. Slugs put down a continuous layer of mucus which makes it impossible for dried deposits of insecticide sprays to reach the actual slug. You will need to use a slug bait such as Sluggo Plus or Hi-Yield Improved Slug and Snail Bait to control the slugs.

  • 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

    How does Bifen IT work on bumble bees?
    A

    Bifen IT will kill any bees that land on the treated surfaces, especially if they are foraging. It offers a 30 day outdoor residual and eradicates over 75 other listed 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.

    Q
    Why is the upper yield of quart container 3x the upper yield of the pint container
    the lower yield number of the quart container is 2x the lower yield of the pint container (32 vs 16). But the upper yield of the quart is 3x (96 vs 32) the upper yield of the pint. Shouldn't it be 64?
    A
    Bifen IT is mixed at .5 to 1 oz per gallon of water.  One pint of the Bifen IT will make 16-32 gallons of finished solution.  One quart will make 32- 64 gallons, while a 3/4 gallon will make 96 to 192 gallons.

    Q
    rainfall after application
    I just applied Biffen for mole crickets and it rained right after application. Do I need to reapply?
    A
    Bifent IT is usually watered in after a mole cricket application so the rain most likely just aided you in your control efforts as the immature mole crickets are just under the soil. Info from the Bifen IT product label :To ensure control of sub  surface pests including 
    Mole Cricketsusing low volume treatments, (i.e. less than2 gallons per 1000 sq
    uare feet), immediately follow the treatment with irrigation of the treated area with at
    least 0.25 inches of water

  • 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.
