  • Asked by Steve from Corpus Christi, Tx
    08/18/2014
    Q
    What is the best pesticide to use for indoors and outdoors?
    My pest control person I had used to spray some pesticide that would kill almost everything. I liked it because it would kill roaches from neighbors trying to come over and would find them all around my fence after spraying the perimeter and ants/spiders and you could spray it on plants, shrubs, trees, and around the lawn.
    A
    We would recommend using Bifen IT. It is a general insecticide that can be sprayed around the perimeter of your home outdoors, on flowers, trees, shrubs, etc. It is not labeled to be sprayed on any type of edibles. Bifen IT can also be sprayed indoors around the cracks and crevices and baseboards. It lasts for up to 90 days indoors and 30 days outdoors.

  • Asked by Javier from United States
    06/23/2014
    Q
    What would you recommend for general pest control around a new home?
    Want to know what products to use and a schedule to do my own work for pest around the home and lawn. I have St. Augustine grass and have a pond behind my home.
    A
    Our most popular general use product is called Bifen IT.  It is widely used by pest control companies because it is labeled for almost every insect you could have a problem with and you can use it outside the home as well as inside, it is odorless and very safe for use around children and pets.  It is a liquid concentrate that you mix with water in a one gallon hand pump sprayer.  It will last for 60 to 90 days outside in between treatments.  It is also labeled for lawn and ornamental use, and can be used on trees, plants, bushes and shrubs for all sorts of ornamental pests including Japanese beetles, mosquitoes, and other leaf eating pests. We recommend treating once a month in the waremst months of the year and then every 90 days when it is cold and pests are less active. Be sure to stay at least 15 ft away from the pond and do not spray on windy or rainy days to avoid having the product drift in to the pond.

  • Asked by David from Olive Branch, Ms
    10/22/2016
    Q
    Will Bifen I/T help with fungus and white spots on crepe myrtles?
    I also have brown spots on a lot of my plants.
    A

    Bifen IT is for insects only and will not treat fungus or other causes of spots on plants.  It is important to identify the disease on your plants so that you can select a product that will work for your needs. You can contact your local cooperative extension office and speak to the master gardener on staff for help identifying the type of disease on your plants

  • Asked by Donna from Soddy Daisy, Tn
    05/13/2016
    Q
    Will the Bifen IT kill the redworms in my yard or make the worms poisonous to my birds if the eat the worms?
    A

    We are not sure what type of worm would be considered a "red worm" as you have described.  If you are referring to earthworms, Bifen IT is not labeled for earthworms, because they are a beneficial but it may cause harm to them if they contact a treated area.  Though they are pretty protected by the mucus on their bodies. This small amount of product needed to kill tiny insects would not be enough to harm a bird if they were to ingest a worm that would have contacted the product.

  • Asked by Tim from Sacramento, California
    12/19/2011
    Q
    Should I use ant bait (both gel and granular) before applying Bifen IT to get rid of sweet ants?
    A
    We recommend using the bait products first and then following up with the Bifen IT. If you spray the Bifen IT in the same place as you use the baits you will make the baits less appealing to the ants and you risk the bait not getting back to the colony because the ants could die too quickly.

  • Asked by Tracy,robynn from Collinsville, Ok
    02/23/2012
    Q
    Does Bifen IT work on "blister bug"?
    We had these in our garden last year and sprayed for them once, but didn't go back and do it again for the eggs.
    A
    You didn't mention what type of garden you have. Is it a flower garden or a vegetable garden? If it is a flower garden Bifen IT should work very well to help eliminate the blister beetles. Bifen IT is not labeled for use on edible plants. If it is a vegetable garden you will need to use a product that is labeled for use on edible vegetation such as Sevin or Natural Guard Insecticidal Soap. Be sure you read the product label of the product you choose before purchasing to make sure the plants you need to treat are listed. Product labels are on individual product pages under the picture of the product. You should also note that we didn't find any products that were specifically labeled for blister beetles so we recommended products that eliminate general garden pests. When pests are not specifically listed on product labels it is usually because these pests do not damage enough crops as to be agriculturally significant.

  • Asked by Dennis
    06/17/2019
    Q
    Can Bifen IT and permethrin be mixed together?
    A

    We do not recommend mixing together two pyrethroids such as Bifen IT and a permethrin product. These products are too similar, and you could create a repellency issue rather than allowing insects to actually contact the treated areas. If you want to add something to Bifen IT for faster intiial knockdown, then we suggest a pyrethrin and/or PBO product such as ExciteR Insecticide.

    Q
    How often do I need to apply Bifen IT when treating clover mites?
    We have clover mites around windows and doors facing south. Some of them already invaded inside house and chill at the window frames and stuff. If I apply Bifen IT on them, how many days do I need to wait until the next application? One more question, I see that typically 1 oz of Bifen IT to 1 gallon of water. Is this formula safe to indoor as well?
    A
     Bifen IT needs to be reapplied once every 30 days. It can be applied indoors to cracks and crevices.
