Product Overview

Catalyst is intended for indoor use only in commercial areas.  This product is not intended for outside use or for indoor residential areas.

Catalyst insecticide offers quick knock down of roaches, ants crickets and other common pests in commercial establishments. Catalyst Insecticide is stable, has a low-odor, and is an easy-to-mix water-based formulation. Catalyst also has the benefit of being a non-repellent contact insecticide, which means insects will venture over the product and eventually die from it instead of being repelled away--making it ideal for roach infestations. The water-soluble plastic (PVA) in Catalyst creates a long-lasting residual that can withstand high heat and humidity. Catalyst Insecticide is perfect for crack-and-crevice applications and can be used in combination with Gentrol IGR for more complete insect control.

    The poison is in the dose...

    This is a typical organophosphate. Very effective at killing. Anything. I would recommend this to a pest control professional but never to a homeowner. The WARNING label should be explained to those non-professionals out there that think if it says 2/3 oz. in a gallon is recommended then 2 or 3 oz. in a half gallon is better. This is a very strong insecticide. Organophosphate insecticides irreversibly inactivate acetylcholinesterase, which is essential to nerve function in insects, humans, and many other animals. It was used as a nerve gas agent by the Nazis in the 1930s and in the Tokyo Underground attack in the late 1980s or early 1990s. It has a strong "cheap paint" smell that subsides in an hour or two. A little goes a very long way and if you know what you are doing, it is exceedingly effective at knocking down even the toughest roach populations.

    My neighbor had a dog under her house that was left unattended for awhile. She finally got rid of the dog and her children started bringing fleas to my home. I was wondering where the fleas were coming from. I stepped into my backyard and I must tell you, my white socks looked like a pair of Brown dress socks. I ran to Lowes and tried about $200.00 worth of products that did not work, a friend of mine gave me a 3.2oz bottle of Catalyst and that knocked the fleas out in no time, but I needed more. I googled the products name and came across this site and man what a blessing. When mixing with NyGuard IGR it diminished my flea infestation in no time and also my neighbors. It's well worth the money if you have any problem with any type of pestilence!!!!!  Works good on roaches as well!

Q
Catalyist vs. Orthene PCO Pellets for outdoor perimeter for roaches.

We have a neighbor in the next house that developed a bad roach infestation. We had a professional company come out to exterminate fives times since June 1, 2010. They treated four times with Demon WP inside and out. While it made a difference, we just couldn't get rid of them.I even used some Demon WP a couple times. On the fifth time out, the owner of the company came to spray, and he sprayed a large portion of the property, and promised we would not see another roach after two weeks. He even put bait in the kitchen cracks. I asked what was used, and he said Catalyst. It has been two weeks, and not one roach seen dead or alive. So, here is the question. Is Catalyst anymore effective than the Orthene PCO pellets for roach invasion prevention? The main reason I ask is because of some cost difference between the products.I would prefer a product that can be sprayed on some grass.

A
According to the product label, Catalyst can only be used indoors and cannot be used in residential structures at all. We do not think Catalyst would be an appropriate choice for you. Orthene PCO pellets can be used indoors and outdoors for roach control. When using Orthene outdoors for roach control, it  is only labeled to be sprayed to a band of soil 6 to 10 feet adjacent to the structure, also to a height of 2 to 3 feet on the foundation where pests may be active or may find entrance. Orthene PCO cannot be sprayed out in the yard.
