No, Bifen LP would not be effective for mosquito control. The adult mosquitoes actually hang out in trees and bushes and the larva develop in standing water. Bifen LP granules can only be used to treat lawns and soil for insect infestation. You can use Bifen IT which is the liquid formulation of Bifen to treat for adult mosquitoes. Mosquito larva can be eliminated with BTI Mosquito Dunks which can be placed directly into water sources such as ponds, unused pools and other areas of standing water.
Yes, Bifen Granules can be applied at the same time as fertilizers. You want to be sure the spreader settings for the fertilizer and the Bifen Granules are the same to ensure proper application.
Bifen Granules are not labeled for use in poultry areas, so we would not suggest it for this use. Regarding other animals, you would need to keep animals out of the treatment area until the granules have been watered in and the application is dry. You could, however, use Bifen IT liquid inseticide, which is labeled for use in poultry houses. You should keep any animals out of the treatment area until the application is dry.
Bifen granules will not kill your lawn, however, we do not recommend applying more than the product label states. This can be hazardous to your health, and could potentially adversely effect the eradication of the targeted insect. Bifen Granules are safe for use on yards where children and pets will walk as long as you follow the product label. Be sure that both children and pets are out of the area during the application and until the treated area is dry. When applied as directed, there is only enough active ingredient to harm small insects. We would ecommend that you contact Control Solutions, the manufacturer, at 281-892-2500 and your veterinarian for further assistance.
Once you have watered in the Bifen L/P Insecticide Granules and the treated areas have had to time to dry completely, rainfall and regular watering should not reduce the effectiveness of the product. In situations with frequent rainfall or frequent watering, you can reapply the product after 2 months.
Bifen Granules recently had a product label change and the new label no longer lists springtails as a target pest. We recommend Demand G Granules to control springtails and they can be used as a perimeter application or over your entire lawn. Children can safely return to the treated area after it is completely dry. Please refer to our How To Get Rid Of Springtails article to see proper treatment methods for the pest and where to look for sources of the nesting site.
Yes, Bifen Granules will treat ground pearls. You would use at a rate of 2 lbs for every 1000 sq/ft, and retreat once a month for 3 months. Before you treat, please be aware that it is important to know that one of the more common traits with ground pearls is they seem to like soil with low PH levels. We would recommend that you have your soil tested to see what the PH levels are, and get that corrected first and then treat with the Bifen Granules.
We recommend using Bifen Granules within 3 years of purchase. Unused product should always be stored in a dry place out of direct sunlight and sealed as airtight as possible.
Bifen L/P is best applied when air temperatures are above freezing and the ground is not frozen
We are not sure why Bifen Granules does not have roaches on the label, but it is the same product as Talstar PL Granules, and roaches are listed on the Talstar granule product label. Please take a few moments to review our treatment article on How to Get Rid of Roaches for a successful roach control program. We do carry Roach Control Kits.
Bifen Granules are an excellent option for ticks in your lawn. You will broadcast them across the lawn and water the product in once it has been applied. This will last approximately 2-3 months in the soil.
We recommend to continue using the Bifen L/P Granules for outdoors to protect your lawn from a broad range of insects. We do recommend treating in your wall voids and behind your outlets with an insecticide dust that will leave a long residual such as Delta Dust. It is water resistant and will last up to 7 months. To do a complete treatment we recommend our Roach Control Kit Rotation A. This kit comes with several products that should be used together to eliminate roach infestations.
