  • Asked by David from Bronxville Ny

    Q
    Will the Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer for Soil & Turf kill Cicada Killer Wasps and their larva?
    A

    The Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer for Soil & Turf is a granule product and is not labeled for anytime of flying insects.

    Cicada Killer wasps thrive in disturbed environments, such as landscaped yards and places where bare soil is exposed. You can discourage the wasps from nesting in your yard by cutting your grass on the highest setting and by adding a thick layer of mulch to flower beds during the Cicada Killer Wasp season. These wasps do not like over saturated lawns either, so over watering during their season will help prevent them. Unfortunately, there is no fool proof way to prevent cicada killer wasps.For prevention you can try to use a granular insecticide such as Talstar PL  Granules in the couple of weeks before this pest is known to emerge. For current infestations, you would need to use Delta dust in each individual burrow.


    We also like to let our customers know that the Cicada Killer wasps are beneficial insects that provide free pest control for a couple months each year. Cicada killer wasps paralyze and provision their burrows with other insects to feed their young.  The beneficial Cicada killer wasps, while large and intimidating to see, are mostly harmless and there have been very few reports of anyone getting stung by just being near them. In most cases where a sting was reported, the wasps were being held or molested in some way. Cicada Killer Wasp stings are also reported to be almost painless.

  • Asked by Chris from Wa
    10/12/2014
    Q
    How does your product work on fleas and their stages around the outside of the house and dog run?
    A
    Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer For Soil & Turf - Granules works well at killing adult fleas. However, the Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer For Soil & Turf - Granules does not have an IGR (insect growth regulator) to stop the reproductive cycle. Fleas have a rapid life cycle and reproduce very quickly and that is why an IGR is such an important component of a flea control treatment. For outdoor flea treatments we would recommend using the Outdoor/Indoor Flea Kit. The kit includes 1 pint of Onslaught Insecticide and 1 x 4 oz. bottle of Martins IGR to stop flea growth and reproduction.  We've included these products because they are easy to use, effective, and safe to use in your yard and inside the home. Both products are concentrated and need to be mixed with water before use.  You can apply the mixed solution with a pressurized hand-held sprayer or a hose-end sprayer.  This kit provides enough product to cover a typical yard (1/4 to 1/2 acre).

    05/20/2018
    Q
    Does the ground have to be dry to apply the Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer For Soil & Turf for lawns ready to spray?
    A

    Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer For Soil & Turf can be applied to damp ground, but it's not recommended to apply to overly saturated ground, since the product must be watered in following the application.  Overly saturated ground will not absorb the product and could potentially cause runoff to unintended areas.

  • Asked by Jfred from Tennessee
    06/04/2017
    Q
    Where did you read that the ground has to be dry before application of the Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer For Soil & Turf?
    I did an application today and the bag did not say the ground had to be dry. I got it out of the trash to read it again after reading that comment, and it did not say that.
    A

    Per the manufacturer, Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer for Soil & Turf only requires 1/4 - 1/2" of water after application which the ground readily absorbs and this activates the product.  If you apply the granules to an already saturated ground, then it won't be able to absorb the additional necessary water required to activate the product.  They recommend that you apply this product to dry soil for best results. If you would like to speak with the manufacturer directly, you can reach them at 1-877- 229-3724, for additional information.

    Q
    Can Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer For Soil & Turf be used to kill termites?
    A

    Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer For Soil & Turf states on the product label that it will kill workers and winged reproductive termites that come into contact with treated areas.  Use of this type of product alone to kill termites should not be considered a substitute for soil treatment of subterranean termites.  You can use Termidor SC to prevent termites from infesting your home. If a colony moves in, this product will eradicate them by transfer kill. We have a guide here that would be helpful.
