    Q
    Can I use Bifen for general pest control soon after Termidor has been used in a barrier treatment?
    I am wanting to use bifen to control spiders on the corners of my home and around the perimeter. I am also in the process of using termidor in a barrier treatment for termites. Is bifen ok to use right now or should I wait a period of time after the termidor treatment
    A
    Since the Bifen will be used topically for general pest control it should not interfere with a trenching treatment done using Termidor SC.

    Q
    In live in So CA. Huge spider problem. What's the best indoor/outdoor product available?
    Daddy long leg spiders.
    A
    We would recommend using Bifen IT for treating indoors and outdoors. Bifen IT is a great general all purpose insecticide that can be used as a perimter treatment on the outside of home (windows, doors, foundation, yard, trees, bushes) and inside as a crack and crevice spray. You will get a 30 day residual on the outside of the home and 90 residual on the inside of home.

    Q
    How does Bifen IT compare to Temprid SC as an overall broadcast spray?
    A

    It depends on where you need to treat.  Bifen IT and Temprid SC are similar as both contain a synthetic pyrethroid. Both are labeled for indoor and outdoor use, but Temprid SC is not labeled for turf and ornamental treatment.  Bifen IT is labeled for lawn and ornamental use, and can be used on trees, plants, bushes and shrubs for all sorts of ornamental pests. They are both great insecticides and can be alternated to avoid resistance.

    Q
    Once you take action spraying your home and yard, do the Springtails return? once killed are they gone for go
    are they taken care of once sprayed and treated around home and yard, what are the effects afterwards,will they return?how do you keep them gone for good???
    A
    It depends.  The whole key to getting rid of springtails is their breeding source.  You have to find it.  Usually they breed under the slab and enter the home through small cracks.  Unfortunately when they breed under the slab the product you apply on top of the ground will not make it to them.  The slab has to dry out and you have to do whatever you can to prevent moisture from getting under the slab.  Usually springtails are breeding because of too much mulch around the house, grade against the house is not going away from the house and water puddles up, downspouts are not going away from the house, etc.   Getting rid of springtails is a moisture management issue usually and not something that pesticides can get rid of alone.

    Q
    Does Bifen help with keeping moles away??
    A

    Bifen is not used to control moles. This product is an insecticide that will control lawn infesting pest like ants, roaches, crickets, worms, caterpillars, ticks, etc. The best way to control moles is with a product specifically labeled for them, such as Talpirid Mole Worms, or Giant Destroyer Gassers. You can review all of the available options on our Mole Control page. Please let us know if you have any questions.

    Q
    What is the dilution ration of the Bifen IT for fire ants?
    fireants in my yard
    A

    According to the Bifen IT product label, Apply 1 fl. oz. per 1,000 square feet when using broadcast treatments. For mound drenches, dilute 1 teaspoon of Bifen IT per gallon of water and use 1 to 2 gallons of finished dilution using sufficient force to penetrate the top and allow dilution to flood ant channels. Treat a four-foot diameter around each ant mound. Application should be made in late evening or early morning when it is cooler (65° - 80° when insects are most active. NOTE: A spray rig calibrated to apply 1 fluid oz. per 1,000 square feet of Bifen I/T in 5 gallons per 1,000 square feet contains the equivalent dilution (1 teaspoon per gallon) required for fire ant mound drenches in the spray tank.

  • Asked by Dawn
    08/02/2017
    Q
    How often should I treat my yard for fleas with Bifen IT?
    Does humidity effect the the treatment
    A

    Bifen alone will not eradicate 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.   Treatment should be reapplied after 14 days if needed and may take 2-3 or more applications. Humidity will not effect the Bifen, it can last up to 30 days on outside surfaces.
