How Demand CS Works
To understand how Demand CS works you must first know what it is. Demand CS is a microencapsulated water-based formulation offering superior insect control. Compared to older pyrethroid materials that have been used for many years with declining results, it is up to 200 times more active on flies and other animal health pests allowing lower rates. And it’s designed not only to work better, but to work longer. Demand CS controls over 30 insect pests including: Ants, Bees, Carpet Beetles, Centipedes, Cigarette Beetles, Cockroaches, Confused Flour Beetles, Firebrats, Fleas, Ticks, and more.
Demand CS combines an advanced generation pyrethroid with a unique capsule suspension formulation for outstanding protection against numerous perimeter insect pests.
Once the formulation has been applied and dried, lambda-cyhalothrin, the active ingredient, is released from the capsules. Control will occur primarily through direct contact of the insect pest with the capsules, with lambda-cyhalothrin transferring directly from the capsule to the cuticle of the insect. It is also possible for the capsules to be ingested in the case of insect pests which preen themselves such as cockroaches.
Large variety of yard, home and ornamental pests, including but not limited to:
INSECTS CONTROLLED: • Ants • Aphids • Armyworm • Azalea caterpillar • Bagworm • Bed bugs • Bees • Beetle • Black turfgrass ataenius • Black vine weevil • Bluegrass billbug • Boxelder bugs • Broadmite • Brown soft scale • Budworm • California oakworm • California red scale (crawler) • Cankerworm • Carpenter bees • Carpet beetles • Centipede • Chiggers • Chinch bug • Cigarette beetles • Clover mite • Cluster flies • Cockroaches • Confused flour beetles • Crickets • Cutworm • Earwigs • Eastern tent caterpillar • Elm leaf beetles • European sawfly • Fall webworm • Firebrats • Flea beetle • Fleas • Flies • Forest tent caterpillar • Grasshopper • Grubs • Gypsy moth larvae • Hyperodes weevil • Japanese beetle • June beetle • Lace bugs • Leaf skeletonizer • Leaf-feeding caterpillar • Leafhopper • Leafminer • Leafrollers • Lesser grain borer • Litter beetles • Mealybug • Midges • Millipede • Mites • Mole cricket • Mosquito • Oleander moth larvae • Parasitic Wasp • Pillbug • Pine sawfly • Pine shoot beetle • Pineneedlescale (crawler) • Pinetip moth • Plant bug • Red flour beetles • Rice weevil • Root weevil • Sawfly • Saw-toothed grain beetles • Scale insect (crawler) • Scorpions • Silverfish • Sowbugs • Spider • Spider mite • Spider Mite, (two-spotted spruce) • Spittlebug • Striped flea beetle • Striped oakworm • Termites • Termites, (above ground only) • Thrips • Tick • Tip moth • Tussock moth larvae • Wasps • Webworm, sod • Whiteflies

By Eric in Scottsdale, AZ on 06/09/2009
We live at the base of the McDowell Mountains in North Scottsdale where crickets, spiders and scorpions are everywhere. I applied Demand CS right before sunset and the following morning it looked like an atomic bomb went off in my yard. Dead crickets, black widow spiders, cockroaches and last but not least the follow evening a slowly dying scorpion in our bedroom that accidentally crossed the wrong path. In nearly three weeks since we applied the product, I have yet to see ONE single cricket, spider, or cockroach. Great product!

We own a log home and have been plagued by carpenter bees. We have tried several other products: powders, liquids, professional and home store strengths and this is by far the best! It is non staining and easy to apply with a garden pump sprayer. After application, we watched the bees hover a minute and then decide to take up residence somewhere else. Those that stuck it out, were dead in the morning. It is almost instantaneous! We also applied it to our barn and found it killed bugs that we didn't even know we had a problem with. Try this product= it works!!!

Ants, crickets, and roaches no more...
By Gregory in Tempe, AZ on 04/15/2009
We have tried several pest control companies to eradicate our recurring summer sewer roach problem to no avail. When the city treats the sewer drains and manholes, the roaches come into our yard and house. We also live in an area with crickets and tiny black ants. Nothing seemed to stop everything until we tried Demand CS. I read the label carefully and found that the strongest wipe out dose was for scorpions. I carefully measured, mixed, and sprayed the yard, block wall, foundation, windows and doors. The next morning was like a nuclear winter. Dead roaches, ants, and crickets everywhere. Our gardener cleaned them up like leaves. We now use the maintenance dose every three months and have not had a pest in a year. Awesome Stuff!!!

This is magic!
By Steve on 09/04/2008
Bought a neglected house with roaches all over the yard. After spraying 24 gallons of Dursban over a two month period I was still seeing too many roaches to count at night. I put Demand CS down and the next morning had over 60 dead roaches, 30+ more the following day and in 1 month and only 2 applications I'm down to 1 or 2 a day outside (dead) and none inside in a month. I've been outside at 11pm on hot nights and not seen one live roach! This is magic.
Great product and price and great customer service
By Mike in Glendale on 08/17/2018
Great product, was able to eliminate the bed bugs in a short period of time, and great customer service, definitely purchase from them again!
Really does work
By Kim in Winnipeg, Manitoba on 08/01/2018
I purchased Demand in order to deal with a roach problem. A woman brought them into the building and the exterminator only sprayed the kitchen cupboards when he should have sprayed the bathroom as well due to them being attracted to the moisture in bathrooms. Well let me tell you this stuff works GREAT! You need VERY little in a large bottle of water to spray around your apartment or house. I still find the occasional dead roach. In fact I showed it to an exterminator that was in my building and when I asked him if it was good he went 'WHOA ! This stuff is great ! It will DEFINITELY kill roaches and bed bugs!' I thought it was very decent of him to be honest about the product because if he wanted to he could have just said 'Oh no you really should leave the treatment to us professionals' but he didn't. I have found other little bugs like lady bugs, beetles etc. that have gotten in though an open window deader than a door nail. I REALLY would recommend this to anyone who has a pest problem. Because I live in an apartment building I can't control my neighbors if they don't care about having roaches or bed bugs but I can sure do my part as the exterminators seem to really not use a good solution/ strength and they're in and out of an apartment in a few minutes! I'm only speaking of the company that was hired to do my building NOT any others.

Ask a Question
QWhat's the difference between Demand CS and Suspend SC?
ABoth products have an active ingredient that is classified as a synthetic pyrethroid, so they really are very similar in the way that they work. Suspend SC contains the active ingredient deltamethrin and is a bit more versatile when it comes to bedbug treatments though as it can be sprayed on mattresses, carpets (spot treat only) and on furniture (crack and crevice only). Demand CS cannot. Demand CS contains the active ingredient lambda-cyhalothrin, and it is micro encapsulated which will make it last a little bit longer in outdoor applications.
QIs Demand CS safe to use around children and pets?
What's the risk of transfer since Demand CS is capsulated? For instance, we have hardwood floors and we vacuum the floors and the baseboards. Can the insecticide be transferred from the vacuum to another surface (such as when vacuum rugs and couches) and increase the risk of contact?
AIf you are applying the product correctly, it should only be in cracks and crevices and other closed off areas. There should not be any issues with transfer effect like you are speaking of. Once you apply Demand CS, the tiny microscopic balls of insecticide will bond to porous surfaces and will not be removed by general cleaning or vacuuming. You should allow 30 minutes after application for the product to dry before cleaning or allowing children and pets to re-enter the room.
QDoes Demand CS kill stinkbugs?
AAbsolutely. Although stink bugs are not specifically on the label, the active ingredient Lambda Cyhalothrin in the Demand CS has shown great results on Stink Bugs. Many of our customers buy Demand CS for stinkbugs and the customer feedback has been great in regards to the results.
QShould I mix Demand CS with Suspend SC and Gentrol?
I've seen the ability to mix Gentrol with either Demand or Suspend, but can all 3 be mixed? Seems this would offer the best combo for heavy knock down, lingering kill, and nymph control to potentially pyrethin resistant bed bugs. Also, can you confirm the pyrethrin resistance rumored in bed bug populations?
AThere are indeed strains of bedbugs that are resistant to synthetic pyrethroid insecticides. Synthetic pyrethroids such as Suspend SC and Demand CS are the man-made versions of natural pyrethrin insecticides such as Exciter or Pyganic Pro. There is no valid reason to mix Suspend SC and Demand CS together, it would not make either product work better or produce better results, though it could make treated areas repellent to bedbugs lessening the effectiveness of the treatment. Both Demand CS and Suspend SC can be mixed with Gentrol IGR for a good knockdown and to break the growth cycle of the bedbugs and their eggs. If you do have a problem with a pyrethroid resistant bedbug population, you should use Phantom and Gentrol together. Phantom is not a pyrethroid, it is from a class of insecticides called pyrrole and there is no known resistance from bedbugs to this product. We also highly recommend that you use an aerosol with a straw attachment such as Phantom aerosol for the small cracks and crevices and a dust such as MotherEarth D for long lasting residual control.
QIs spraying Demand CS to eliminate bed bugs in the house perfectly safe for my children under 8, and my dogs?
AUsing Demand CS indoors for bedbugs is safe as long as you follow the Demand CS product label. Be sure to have all children and pets out of the area while you are doing the application and they can return as soon as the treated area is dry.

QIs Demand CS the best bug spray and safe for dogs?
I was told by a friend to use Demand CS because he loves it. But with so many options on your sight I am wondering is this the best one for me. I am trying to do all around pest control but what i see the most is black widows, June bugs, pincher bugs and daddy long legs as well as ants. I would like to know what you recommend for strength and longevity.
A Demand CS is a great general pest control and works well for spiders, earwigs, ants, mosquitoes and many others. It should be applied monthly outside and inside quarterly. It would be safe if to apply when the dogs are not present until the surfaces are completely dry.

QIf drift from Demand CS gets on vegetable plants can they still be eaten?
A If back spray or drift for a Demand CS application were to get on any edibles, fruits or vegetables, they would need to be discarded and not consumed.

QI just planted small, new shrubs and flowers around my foundation. Will Demand CS kill the plants?
A Demand CS should not be applied directly to new plants. You can treat the areas surrounding them safely.

QHow quickly does Demand CS kill roaches and bed bugs?
A Demand CS is a residual insecticide that will continue to kill the labeled insects for an extented period of time. However it is not a contact kill product. It can sometimes take a few days before you start to see dead insects after making an application of the product.

QHow much Demand CS do you put in 2.0 liters of water?
A Demand CS is mixed at the rate of 0.2 to 0.8 fl oz per gallon of water. If using in less (such as in ½ gallon) that rate would be halved to 0.1 to 0.4 fl oz.

QCan you use Demand CS in the house for fleas?
A Demand CS is only labeled for outdoor use for fleas. If you are looking for a liquid concentrate to use indoors for fleas, we would recommend something like Onslaught. You may also want to take a look at our Flea Control Guide for more information.

QWill Demand CS work on Carpenter Ants?
A Yes, Demand CS is labeled for carpenter ants and will kill any carpenter ants that come in contact with a treated surface. It is micro-encapsulated, so it works like a time released formula. For carpenter ant control specifically, we would recommend our Indoor Carpenter Ant Kit. The kit contains professional pest control products to control carpenter ants found inside structures, including two baits that contain different formulations and active ingredients to increase bait acceptance and efficacy. To control carpenter ants around the exterior of your home, Taurus SC will do the trick. You would mix 0.8 fl. oz. of Taurus SC per gallon of water and apply using a hand-pump sprayer around the outside of the home, spraying 1 foot up the side of the house and 1 foot out from the house, all the way around the home.
