    Q
    Can I use a liquid like Bifen XTS to treat surface feeding insects in the lawn and then also use a systemic granule after for grubs?
    Is it ok to use low volume water to treat surface feeders, such as armyworms...then granules to kill mole crickets or grubs?
    A

    As long as the two products you plan to use do not have any restrictions on the label stating that you cannot use them within a certain time frame of another insecticide, you can certainly use both on the yard to target two different pests. Normally we would suggest using the systemic granules for grubs first since those will need to be watered in to be activated. And then several hours later once it has dried or the following day you could come back with the Bifen XTS or other spray product to control the surface insects.

    Q
    Does Bifen XTS have an odor?
    I've been using Crosscheck for some time on my exterior. It seems to have an odor if left in the tank for s couple of days. Does Bifen XTS have a odor during application? What if left in the tank for a couple of days?
    A

    Bifen XTS does have an “aromatic hydrocarbon odor” per the SDS that will dissipate once treated areas are dry.  You should only mix what you can use within 24 hours and discard any left over.  Do not store in a sprayer as this can damage the sprayer and the product starts to breakdown once mixed with water and would be ineffective.

    Q
    Is Bifen XTS good for summer months?
    I'm looking for a product to target springtails, ants, roaches, mosquitos and spiders (a lot right!). I see this product needs to be applied every 30 days. Is there another product that would be good for maybe 2-3 months and holds up well to warm weather (90-100degress)?
    A

    There really is no need to use Bifen XTS. Bifen IT will get the job done. Dilute at 1oz per gallon water and reapply once every 1-2 months.

  • Asked by Joan from Kinston, Nc
    09/23/2015
    Q
    Can I treat an old farm house table that has been stored and appears to have had pine beetles with Bifen XTS?
    After a few days, I will wash table with white vinegar and linseed oil mixed. Will it be safe to use for eating table after this treatment? If not, please advise a safe way to treat this table and use for eating afterward.
    A

    For the treatment of wood destroying insects we would recommend Boracare instead because it is absorbed by the wood and will last the lifetime of the wood. It is recommended for Boracare to be applied to raw wood, but if it's not, you can inject it into the wood. Be sure to follow the label instructions for proper application. Once it's dry, you can then stain it within 6 weeks of the application, and it would be safe for eating afterwards.

    04/03/2017
    Q
    Does Bifen XTS work on ants other than fire ants?
    A

    Bifen XTS is a good choice for either a broadcast application or for individual mound drenching for fire ants and other ants. Be sure to follow the application instructions on the product label. If you already see ants indoors, then we recommend our Indoor Ant Kit which contains baits to take out the entire colony.

  • Asked by Megan
    03/29/2011
    Q
    What mixture of Bifen XTS is used to treat Zimmerman moths on pine trees?
    A
    You will need to use 1.28 fl. oz. of Bifen XTS per 10 gallons of water and apply at the rate of 10 gallons per 4,356 square feet. One gallon of finish spray will treat 435 sq. ft. If a higher volume application is needed to sufficiently cover the plant canopy, Bifen XTS can be diluted in large volumes of water and applied through low volume equipment as long as the maximum label rate (1.28 fluid ounces per 4,356 square feet) is not exceeded.

    Q
    I have juniper bushes over run with bagworms. Will this eliminate the problem?
    A
    Bifen XTS will definitely help control bagworms. For best results treat when larvae start to hatch. Spray larvae directly. Applications will be most successful if they are made when the larvae are young.
