    Dogs must be removed from the area that is being sprayed. The dogs can return as soon as the area is dry (usually less than 1 hour).

    Q
    Does Conquer kill bed bugs?
    A
    Conquer is not labeled for bedbugs and is not intended for use on bed bugs. There are many other products on the market that have been tested and labeled for bed bugs. Phantom is one of our most popular bed bug products as it is non-repellent and there is no known resistance to this product. You can check out the rest of our bed bug products by clicking on the Bed Bugs tab at the top of any page on our website.

    Q
    Can I add Martin's IGR to Conquer? What will the indoor/outdoor mix ratio be in the one gallon sprayer?
    I need to kill the fleas indoors and outdoors. Can I buy the 1 oz. bottle and mix that in with the Conquer? I have a 1500 sq. foot home and a 1/4 acre yard.
    A
    You can add Martins IGR to Conquer for flea control. You can mix 1 ounce of each product into one gallon of water to treat 1,000 sq ft area. When treating outdoors you can increase the volume of water to insure even coverage in areas with dense vegetation (i.e., use 2-5 gallons of water with the 1 oz of each product).

    Q
    What is the mixing ratio I need to conquer these fleas with Conquer?
    Got rid of dog. Back yard is now infested with fleas. 40 to 50 fleas cover my jeans when I step out back. Terrible. I will no doubt buy the IGR as well. Can I mix them together? Thanks.
    A
    Mix 1 oz of Conquer with 1 gallon of water in a hand pump sprayer and apply at a rate of one gallon per 1000 square feet. (you may also add Archer IGR to 1 gallon of the finished Conquer/water solution for more effective flea control.  Archer IGR is made for outdoors and holds up better in the sunlight. Read the product label for complete instructions and safety precautions before using the product.

  • Asked by Michael from Wilmington, Delaware

    Q
    When treating for roaches, how far should bait (Max Force) be from insecticide (Conquer)?
    I am particularly concerned about treating an apartment where the little kitchen is next to the larger living area. Will the bait be effective if the larger part of the apartment is repelling?
    A
    The Maxforce Roach Bait Gel should be applied by placing one small pea sized dot every 10-12 inches directly into cracks and crevices around counters, sinks, drawers and cabinets in kitchens and bathrooms. Conquer should be applied along baseboards, in cracks and crevices, under appliances, around door frames, window frames and in areas where utilities (cables, pipes, wires) enter into the structure. There is no set distance you need to keep the products but the general rule of thumb is to keep the baits up high around counters and inside cabinets and to keep the sprays down low near the floor area. Do not apply bait in the same exact spot where you sprayed the Conquer.

    Q
    Is it safe to use Conquer Insecticide with Precor IGR indoors and not leave if area is well ventilated?
    I have a three year old, three cats and a rabbit. Along with fleas. It's difficult to find somewhere to take the pets before spraying. Our house had a large industrial fan in the stoc attic that ventilates very well. Would it be safe to remain in the home with the fan on, especially since the ingredients are not strong smelling? We have used them before.
    A
    We would not recommend staying in the home after treating with Conquer. Some folks will keep their pets and children in one area of the house while treating another. Once the treated area has dried it is safe for children and pets to back around.

    Q
    Does Conquer kill leaf cutter ants?
    I live in the central tx area and have a problem with leaf cutter ants. I have multiple ant mounds in approx 40x40 area (nest area). I also have ant foraging holes in many areas. I've tried Amdro Ant Block and Ortho Bug B Gone. They don't work well. A web site recommended a residual insecticide like Conquer (www.antcontrols.com). Does Conquer kill leaf cutter ants? Will it kill the queen(s)? Is there anything better to kill the ant?
    A
    Conquer will kill ants that make direct contact with treated areas. Leaf cutter ants can be a difficult pest to get rid of. The colonies are large and the ants make their own food so poison baits only have limited effects on this species of ants. According to several university websites Maxforce Complete Granules containing hydramethlynon are some what effective, though they will usually eliminate only about 30% of a large colony in one treatment and will need to be reapplied several times.  Deltagard granules is one of the only products actually labeled for leaf cutter ants. The product label recommends treating the mound directly and lightly watering the granules in. Again it may take several treatments to get the desired results. We also recommend contacting your local cooperative extension office to see if they have any recommendations for products that have worked for other people in your region.

  • Asked by Alexander from Puerto Rico
    12/05/2011
    Q
    How effective is Conquer on ticks? Would Archer IGR be a good addition?
    I have a tick infestation that I've been battling for months. I have two siberian huskies that I usually bring inside during the day and to sleep at night, sometimes in the bed. I've tried another department store product, Bayer Advance Complete Insect killer, and it's proven ineffective.
    A
    Conquer is labeled for ticks and should do a great job for you. The addition of Archer IGR will be necessary to help you get control of the tick population on your property. Do not make spot applications outdoors. Treat the entire area where exposure to ticks may occur. Use more water (not more product) when treating areas with dense ground cover or heavy leaf litter. Ticks may be reintroduced from surrounding areas on host animals. Indoors, thoroughly apply as a spot treatment to infested areas such as pet beds and resting quarters; nearby cracks and crevices; along and behind baseboards, window and door frames; and localized areas of floor and floor coverings where these pests may be present. Repeat treatments will be necessary to achieve and/or maintain control during periods of high pest pressure. All of your dogs should be treated with a product that is specifically labeled for use on dogs for tick control.

    You can also help by creating a "tick safe zone" in your yard. You should have an area that is at least 9 ft wide between your yard and any wooded area. Trim back trees to allow as much sunlight as possible into your yard. Keep grass as short as possible. Remove as much leaf litter as possible. A clearly defined, well manicured border between your yard and any wooded areas or weedy lots will reduce the chance of ticks infesting your yard.

    Q
    Will the Conquer and Archer IGR together be safe for my outside cats, and can I spray upholstered furniture?
    It's the fall here. When is the best time to spray? Before it rains? Will rain dilute solution? What can't you spray in the house? How many hours do you need the dogs to stay out of a room you have sprayed?
    A
    All animals need to be out of the area while you are doing the application and they can safely return after the treated area has dried. When spraying outdoors the area you are treating should be dry at the time of the application and for 24 hours after the application. After 24 hours the products will be rain safe. Conquer and Archer IGR are both labeled to be sprayed indoors but are not labeled for use on upholstered furniture. On upholstered furniture you could use a product that is labeled for this type of application such as Ultracide. Most infestations require a second treatment and severe infestation may even require a third treatment. Treatments should be applied at two week intervals. Infested areas indoors should be thoroughly vacuumed prior to product applications to help remove as much flea eggs, larvae and debris as possible, and also to help stimulate larvae to change stages and come into contact with the product. You should continue to vacuum at least every other day for the next two weeks. Pets should be treated for fleas as well as the areas they spend a lot of time such as pet bed, kennels, carriers, couches, and moist shady areas where they spend time outside.

    Q
    Does Conquer Liquid Insecticide have a shelf life?
    I purchased some in July 2013.It worked great with Martins IGR. No fleas until I found some on my INDOOR ONLY cats today. We want to retreat the house and are hoping this is still effective to use. I found a 3 year time on the IGR but can't find anything on the Conquer product.
    A

    Conquer has a three year shelf life from the date of purchase if kept away from extreme temperatures. Please take a few moments to read over our article How to Get Rid of Fleas to learn how to implement a successful Flea control program.

  • Asked by Charlie from Somerset, New Jersey

    Q
    What is more effective for general inside/outside bug control in New Jersey: Suspend SC, Talstar P or Conquer?
    I have been paying a Professional for years to spray once a month from May-Sept. I noticed he was simply mixing "Conquer" with water in his pump sprayer. When I found this website, I was surprised I could buy similar products to do job myself. Which of the three I listed is best?
    A
    Honestly, all the products you mentioned will do a great job on any insect you could encounter. They will all dry clear, have a low odor if any at all, can be used indoors and outdoors, and will last at least 30 days outside and 90 days inside. If you wanted to stick with the Conquer that your company has been using you can certainly do it yourself with the same results. If you are looking for a product that will give you more product for the money, the Talstar would be a great alternative with the same results.

  • Asked by Connie
    09/08/2009
    Q
    How long does a typical treatment for fleas last when using Conquer Insecticide?
    A
    Conquer will last up to 60 days inside a home and for about 30 days when used outside.  For bad infestations outside, you should apply every two weeks.  Conquer will work much more effectively when you combine it with an IGR (insect growth regulator) such as Archer IGR. Inside the home, it is important to vacuum daily (even on hard floor surfaces) and dispose of the vacuum bag or empty the canister (if bagless) outside in a trash bag.

  • Asked by Brian from Loves Park, Illinois
    07/12/2013
    Q
    Is Conquer Liquid Insecticide safe to spray in the kitchen for ants?
    A
    When used as directed on the product label, Conquer is safe to spray in a kitchen.  Ants are especially difficult to get rid of.  This is because an ant colony can reproduce new ants almost faster than you can kill them.  Conquer will only kill the ants it touches.  The key though to ant removal is eliminating the nest.  Most of the time you have no idea where the nest is.  So, you have to use a product that will not kill the ants right away so they will take it back to the colony and spread it around, eliminating the source.  This is where ant baits come in.  Ant baits are a food source that the ants in your kitchen will eat and take back to the colony.  It will not kill them right away.  This is the only true way to eliminate your ant problem is to kill them at the source.  If you do not kill the colony, you will continue to battle them all summer.  One important note is you need to stop spraying the Conquer until you get some ant bait, and do not spray until after your ants are gone.  If you continue to spray the Conquer, the ants will die before they get back to the colony with the bait.  Our most popular ant elimination product is our Complete Ant Kit.  It comes with an ant granular bait to apply outside around the house, and a gel bait to apply in your kitchen.  It has a very high success rate and is our most popular ant kit.
