    Q
    Is Bifen IT effective for weevils?
    I have a problem with white pine weevils. Is there a better alternative that would be more effective?
    A
    Bifen IT is labeled for "weevils" in general and the active ingredient Bifenthrin is known to be effective for white pine weevils. It is important when using a foliar application that treatments start when adult weevils first start to appear in spring, usually around mid-April. At this time, Bifenthrin seems to be the only active ingredient available to homeowners for white pine weevil control. We also suggest you contact your local cooperative extension office for more tips on the best treatment time in your specific area.

    Q
    Can I use Bifen IT on the rafters of my pool enclosure to prevent spider webs from forming?
    A

    Bifen IT would not prevent spiders from forming webs but would help to kill spiders or other insects that contact a treated surface long enough to receive a lethal dose.  To prevent spider webs it would be better to use a product like Web Out.

    Q
    Will Bifen I/T kill wasps?
    They are flying around my hanging baskets. Never had this problem before. I've checked everywhere for nests and don't see any.
    A

     

    Yes, Bifen IT is labeled to treat for wasps, but it is not an instant knockdown. Bifen IT will kill wasps that it comes in contact with it. Retreat after 21 days if signs of renewed activity exist. You may want to consider our Wasp and Hornet Kit which contains the residual insecticide Cyzmic CS, plus Wasp-X to kill insects very quickly when you locate nests.

    Q
    why did my mole activity get worse after an application of Bifen IT?
    I sprayed my front lawn for mole crickets. The moles now have dug tunnels EVERYWHERE. Now what?
    A

    We really haven't had anyone with this particular issue in the past but we do have an idea of what might be happening. Moles eat insects. They have to eat a lot of insects every day and have huge appetites. We think it is possible that the Bifen IT has killed their food source and they are searching all over for more food. Once they realize there is no food to be had they should move on quickly. You can also try trapping or baiting if they are not moving on fast enough for you.  You may also want to look over our mole control guide for more information.

    Q
    Are the caterpillars bleeding out?
    I had a pest control company do my quarterly treatment and they sprayed Bifen on my outside walls where there were caterpillars. After the spraying, I had red trails all over the walls and now have stained the walls. How come this is and does this product do this?
    A
    We have never had a report of bleeding caterpillars in the past. We recommend that you contact the pest control company that sprayed your home or the Bifen IT manufacturer Control Solutions for more information. Control Solutions: (281) 892-2500

    Q
    If I spray Bifen IT how long do I have to wait to put livestock back on premises?
    A

    Bifen IT is safe to use around livestock premises as long as the animals are NOT grazing in the treated areas. After the application, you need to wait until the area is completely dry before letting the animals back onto the treated areas.

    Q
    Can Bifen IT be used on the inside of the house for termites?
    A

    Bifen IT is labeled to treat active infestations inside as directed on the product label but would only kill those termites that actively make contact with a treated surface or are sprayed directly.  If you are dealing with subterranean termites, you want to use a product that has a "tranfer-kill" effect. Termidor SC is a great product to use to treat termites and prevention, or Termidor Foam for active only, both of which are non repellent and transfer back to the colony below ground. Please see our Termite Control Page. Scroll to the bottom of the page and find information on identification and treatment for termites.

    Q
    Will Bifen IT kill bedbugs?

    Bifen IT is not recommended for bedbug control. We normally recommend one of our Bedbug Kits as they contain all of the necessary products for a complete bed bug treatment.  Please take a moment to look over our Bed Bug Guide for more information on how to implement a successful bed bug treatment program.

    Q
    Can treat my yard with Bifen IT if I have applied Bayer Advanced Insect Killer granules?
    A

    Typically mosquitoes are not going to harbor in the lawn where the Bayer granules were placed.  They are usually found in bushes and dense foliage areas.  You can safely spray all bushes/hedges/ground covers and any areas you feel mosquitoes may be present on a monthly basis with Bifen I/T

  • Asked by Sam from Chicago, Il
    05/04/2019
    Q
    What are the effects of Bifen IT on pollinators, and butterflies?
    A

    Bifen IT is not labeled for beneficial insects like butterflies.  However, it is not really selective so it has the potential to kill them if they come in contact with a treated area.  To avoid contacting beneficial insects, apply in the early morning or late evening when they are less active in the area.  We would also recommend avoiding application to blooms to limit contact.  A better option would be to use Mavrik Perimeter. There is no lingering odor or visible residue, and when dry, it is non toxic and non repellent to honey bees.  We would still recommned you apply in the early morning or late evening when they are less active in the area
