    Q
    What is the best general purpose insecticide you offer? We are treating for roaches, spiders..etc.
    I am looking for something since I no longer use an exterminator. Thanks
    A
    We would recommend Bifen IT as a great general insecticide. It is labeled for spiders, roaches, and over 75 other pests. It can be used indoors and outdoors. The residual is up to 90 days indoors and 30 days outdoors. Bifen IT can also be broadcast across your lawn, sprayed on trees, shrubs, flowers, etc. It cannot be sprayed on any type of edibles. Indoors, you will spray along the baseboards and cracks and crevices. You will mix 1 fl. oz. of Bifen IT per gallon of water. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

  • Asked by Dave from Westland, Mi.
    06/12/2013
    Q
    Is it safe to spray this around the parameter of a raised bed garden?
    I also have several apple trees in an area surrounded by mulch. Can this be sprayed on the mulch (not directly on the trees) and the apples will still be safe to eat?
    A
    As long as the product does not come into direct contact with the plants, their roots or drip line, you can use the product around the areas safely. Try to spray on a very calm sunny day to allow for less chance of wind drift as you spray and for quicker dry times.

  • Asked by Kevin from Berlin, Md
    09/14/2015
    Q
    Can you mix Bifen IT and Termidor for termites?
    A

    Bifen IT and Termidor should not be mixed for termite control.  Bifenthrin products used to be considered a good form of termite treatment, but bifenthrin acts as a repellent and now a days almost all professional termite companies are using non-repellents, such as Termidor SC.  We have a great article called How To Do A Termite Treatment that explains how to perform a treatment using a non-repellent termiticide.

  • Asked by Doris from Nc

    Q
    Will Bifen IT kill silverfish?
    How often should it be applied?
    A

    Yes, Bifen IT is labeled for silverfish and will do a great job helping to eliminate them. Be sure to spray in all of the cracks and crevices where silverfish are known to harbor for best results. You will mix 1 oz per gallon of water per 1,000 sq ft. and it can be applied every 30 days on the outside of the structure and every 90 days to the indoor cracks and crevices. Keep in mind that these pests frequent humid areas such as bathrooms and stored paper goods like files and wallpaper, so non-chemical steps to correct those conditions will help eliminate this pest.

  • Asked by Jane from Madison, Wi
    07/21/2013
    Q
    Could Bifen poison a chipmunk?
    After applying bifen in my back yard, next day I found a dead chipmunk. Is it a coincidence, or could bifen actually poison a chipmunk?
    A
    This is most likely a coincidence and a wild animal may have gotten a hold of the animal. If the Bifen were to affect the chipmunk it would normally mean the chipmunk got into it the mixed solution itself or maybe consumed a large amount where the surfaces you sprayed were still wet. Once the product is dry it wont harm any animals or people.

  • Asked by Ryan from Elkton, Florida
    03/26/2014
    Q
    My dog recently got out, now I have ticks on my ceiling. I bought Bifen IT, will this kill them?
    I also got the backpack sprayer. I want to do my own yearly pest control. So, what are some other chemicals that I need. I live in NorthEast Florida. Thanks
    A
    Yes, Bifen IT is labeled and works very well on ticks. However, it is important to incorporate an IGR (insect growth regulator) into the Bifen IT solution. Nyguard IGR is an exceptional IGR that is works well to control the growth cycle of ticks and prevents the ticks from being able to lay eggs.

  • Asked by Mike from Orlando,fl
    10/02/2011
    Q
    I just put down a new lawn, which came with bugs. Is Bifen IT safe to apply to lawns?
    A
    Absolutely.  Bifen IT is not only great for indoors and outside your home, but it is labeled for lawn and ornamental plants as well.  It is a very popular product to be applied to shrubs, bushes, and trees to get rid of mosquitoes, and is great for applying to lawns for chinch bugs and other pests.  The main place you should not apply it is to anything edible, like a garden.

  • Asked by Gary from Pahoa, Hi
    05/09/2015
    Q
    Does Bifen IT degrade if container is left in the sunlight?
    I left my container of Bifen IT on the side of my house for a month, where it gets a few hours of tropical sun (Hawaii). It as yellowed some, but seems otherwise OK. Will it still work or should I throw it away (properly) and buy new?
    A
    Insecticides should be stored out of extreme heat and direct sunlight. The yellowing may have been the container turning rather than the concentrate. The sunlight and heat degrade the active ingredient and greatly reduce the shelf life, so you would probably be best served using fresh product.
