  • Asked by Josh from Houston, Tx
    05/26/2016
    Q
    Can you apply Bifen XTS directly to flowers and palm trees to kill ants if the temp is under 85 degrees?
    I assume it is ok for the outside temp to be over 85 once the Bifan dries? We have very small black ants (Houston area) that crawl on the flowers which eat holes and turn the buds black. They eventually kill the plants and the plant food with insect killer has not stopped them. Our flowers are freshly planted if that raises a concern.
    A

    Bifen XTS should not harm plants when applied at cooler times of the day. It would be better to use a product like Dominion 2L which will not harm flowers and will be transferred back to the ant colony.

    Q
    Can Bifen XTS be used around lakes and ponds without harming fish?
    A

    Bifen XTS should not be applied within 25 ft from a lake/pond containing fish. It is extremely toxic to aquatic life. Do not apply when weather conditions favor drift from treated areas. Care should be used when spraying to avoid fish and reptile pets in/around ornamental ponds.

  • Asked by Paul from Paducah, Ky
    05/21/2015
    Q
    Is it okay to use Bifen XTS over an area that was sealed with an oil based sealant?
    The underside of our camper is "raw" (unfinished) OSB, so, it cannot be treated / painted with any water base material. I want to "seal" this area and protect it from wood bees. So, the idea is to treat this area with an oil base insecticide, let dry well, then paint it with an oil base sealer or primer. Will low odor paint thinner or mineral spirits affect the pesticide properties of Bifen XTS? Or would a different product be better?
    A
    We recommend applying the sealant on first before performing a treatment with insecticides. When using Bifen XTS it is possible that it will affect the sealant put down prior because of the xylene base in the Bifen XTS product. With the possiblity of Bifen XTS having an affect on the sealant we recommend using Bifen I/T which is water based and has the same active ingredient as Bifen XTS. Bifen I/T as well as Bifen XTS are both highly toxic to bees.

    07/02/2016
    Q
    Is Bifen XTS safe for use on potted Hibiscus in 12" pots, dealing with heavy fungus gnat infestation?
    Is it better to use a pitcher (sort of drenching the soil for fungus gnats and plant leaves ridding them of aphids and mealy bugs as well), or a 1 gallon pump sprayer for a lighter misting all over? I have good drainage, watered daily, and fertilized once a week. was thinking about a 1.5 teaspoon (0.25 fl oz) per 2 gallons for heavy infestation.
    A

    Yes, Bifen XTS can be used on potted plants for fungus gnats. It is recommended that you use this product with a gallon pump sprayer. The mixing ratio is .004 -.02 fl oz. per gallon of water. Be sure to apply to the bottoms of the leaves as well. In two gallons of water, you will use .04 fl. oz.

  • Asked by Larry from Salida, Co
    04/01/2018
    Q
    Can I apply Bifen XTS for clover mites inside and outside?
    After a well known professional company sprayed 5X I still have clover mites.
    A

    Bifen IT can be used inside and outside. Bifen XTS is oil based and can only be applied outdoors. Bifen IT can be used to kill clover mites and will leave a residual of up to 30 days outside.  It will not repel them from the area but instead will continue to kill those that contact a treated surface after application.  We have a guide here with more information on treating and preventing this pest.  Pets need to be kept out of the area while products are being applied but can return once all surfaces are dry.

  • Asked by Bill from Inverness
    04/23/2016
    Q
    How much Bifen XTS to mix per gallon of water to treat spider mites on my red cypress tress?
    A

    According to the label, for Spider Mites on ornamentals, you would use .38 -1.28 ounces per every 10 gallons of water. The Bifen IT would be better for your needs than the Bifen XTS as spider mites are not its main usage and is a much higher rate of the active ingredient, therefore causing you to have to dilute much further down for your needs
