    Bifen should be able to be mixed with your weed and feed. Be sure to test the mix by doing a tank mix before application.

    Q
    Is Bifen IT safe to use near well water?
    Also, I have sprayed this on an underground yellow jacket nest, and they are still at this location.
    A

    Per the product label, the soil around a well can be treated with Bifen IT. You can treat up to three feet away from the well.

    With Bifen IT, the label states that when you are treating for yellow jackets, spray the nest opening in the ground, bushes, and in cracks and crevices where the insects may nest. Saturate the openings and contact as many insects as possible. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

    You must keep Bifen IT applications outside of the root zone of the vegetable plant according to the Bifen IT product label. Spraying within a foot of edible vegetation is usually too close.

  • Asked by Dustin from Breaux Bridge, La
    09/12/2014
    Q
    Which product recommended to kill mosquito?
    I own a still backpack fogger. Right now I'm using vector ban plus to kill the mosquitos at home. It works but it seems like I need to spray every night. We get afternoon showers every day at this time of the year in the south which brings out more mosquitos. I was thinking of ordering Bifen and Demon Max and spraying them in rotation. Any advice on any of these 3 products are another recommendation would help. I want a quick kill and I also would like a residual
    A

    Vector Ban Plus does not leave any kind of residual so will only kill the mosquitoes that are out in the open at the time you are applying to product.

    You are on the right track with using a residual product like Bifen IT or Demon Max, it is actually our most popular product for mosquitoes.  The key is to apply it to the underside of leaves of trees and bushes as that is where the adults lay during the day. Bifen would be the more recommended as it known to be super gentle on plants but you can rotate them as well.

  • Asked by Mike from Scarborough, Maine
    06/21/2014
    Q
    Can I apply Bifen IT with the garden hose sprayer? What is the shelf life of Bifen IT? thanks
    try to treat my lawn for mosquitoes, it is about an acre plus a lot of bushes around the perimeter. I used Ortho Bug B Gon insect killer, it is easy to apply but only last about a week. 0.03% of Bifethrin.
    A
    You can use the Bifen IT 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.  Bifen IT has a shelf live of 3 years of the date of purchase. It is important to store insecticides out of direct sunlight and out of extreme temperatures.
    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.

    Caterpillars have been dining on my blue spruce trees. They are now in cocoons. Is it too late to spray in September, or should I wait until next spring? Will Bifen do the trick?

  • Asked by Matt from Mn
    07/14/2013
    Q
    Why can't I use a ulv sprayer with bifen? Should a person use a resperator with this product?
    A
    Bifen is not formulated to be used in any type of fogger, neither thermal or ULV. Using a product that is not meant to get broken down into that level of application, jeapordizes the quality of the product and its ability to perform appropriately, as well as can harm your fogger. Bifen should only be used in a unit that is a true sprayer. You would need to use a water based fogging concentrate in your ULV unit. You would not have to wear a respirator when spraying Bifen indoors or out but you could wear something similar to a painters mask to help protect the nose and mouth from any drift or back spray. If you were using an appropriate fogging concentrate in your ULV fogger in an indoor area you would want to use a respirator in those areas. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    Q
    How often do I need to treat my yard with Bifen IT?
    If I have an acre of land how much do I need?
    A
    Unfortunately you did not mention what pest you are trying to treat in your yard so we can not be very specific. The Bifen IT label does say that you can repeat applications as often as every 7 days outdoors but most customers do not repeat applications more than once a month for most pests. Again the usage rate of Bifen IT will vary greatly depending on what type of pest your are trying to control. The Bifen IT product label recommends 0.25-1.0 fl oz per 1,000 sq ft for most pests outdoors. You can find the usage rate tables starting on page 12 of the product label.

    Q
    Can I just treat fire ant mounds in horse pastures using Bifen IT?
    A

    Bifen IT is not labeled for use in horse pastures or other animal grazing areas. You can use Essentria All Purpose for fire ant mound drenching. In Spring and Fall, you can use Extinguish Fire Ant Bait as a broadcast and mound baiting application. We have more tips on these applications in our Fire Ant Treatment Guide here.

    Q
    How often should I treat my yard with Bifen IT? My yard has a flea problem.
    Flea infestation Outside . How soon After the first initial application should i retreat
    A

    If you are using Bifen IT to treat an active flea infestation, you will need to re-treat 14 days after your initial application.  It is strongly recommended to also use an insect growth regulator (IGR) such as Archer IGR in addition to the Bifen IT in order to stop the fleas from reproducing.  Please take a moment to read over our Flea Control Guide for more information on how to implement a successful eradication program.

    Q
    Are Nyguard and Bifen IT safe for house plants?
    If so how should I apply for fungus gnats
    A

    Bifen IT is safe on house plants on the foliage.  Nyguard is not labeled for this use.  For fungus gnats you would be using as a soil drench to treat.  The other option is to allow the soil to dry out completely as this will kill any larvae in the soil.

    Q
    Can we use Bifen IT on our hay meadow?

    A

    Bifen IT cannot be applied to hay intended to be consumed by animals. We would recommend to use Evergreen Pyrethrum.  Be sure to wait a week or two after application to harvest.
