    Q
    Once Demand CS is dried on surface does freezing then matter or should you wait till its above freezing even at night?
    A

    It would be best to make the Demand CS application when temperatures are above freezing. This way, the residual does not break down as quickly as when temps are below freezing.

    Q
    What will help with stink bugs in an attic?
    Can you use demand cs in attics were stink bugs are bad .I think they like going under insulation.If I spraying the insulation will it work to kill stink bugs ??? Thanks
    A
    You can use Demand CS is in the attic to help control the stinkbugs. Only the stinkbugs that come in contact with treated areas will be killed. We mention this because many of these pests will remain hidden and will not come out until it really starts to warm up so you may have pretty mixed results.

    Q
    Biting gnat/noseeums infestation in every room of a large 4 floors house. What's the best plan of action?
    No idea where they are coming from. Plants and drains seem to be free of them. Tried vacuuming every other day for weeks now. Fogging didn't work, maybe got more of them via open windows? Impossible to be still anywhere. Want products as a space spray for most active areas, and for rugs, and for general cleaning. Need to be careful around kids/dogs "licking" surfaces. Can be multiple products.
    A

    Biting midges do generally not enter structures, but midges are small enough to get through 16 mesh screens. Getting mesh screens with a higher number can keep these and other very tiny insects out of your home. Our experts recommend using a pyrethrin spray such as 565 Plus or Microcare to get rid of the adult midges in or around your home.

    Non-biting midges are attracted to lights, so it is recommended to draw your shades at night and wait as long as possible to turn on exterior lights to keep them away from your home. Using the FlyWeb Fly Light inside the home works great on flying insects inside the home.

    A great prodcut to use indoors and outdoors on your home that is safe for pets and kids once it has dried it called Onslaught. Onslaught can be used as a broadcast over carpeted areas inside the home mixing at 1oz per gallon of water. Spraying a product such as Onslaught on window screens, doors, bushes, and plants around your home can act as midge repellant to keep midges away.

    Q
    Can you store Demand CS in a hot garage?
    I live in central Texas where the summer temps can reach over 100 degrees for several weeks in a row. What effect will the extreme heat have on Demand CS if I store it in my garage, which is not insulated?
    A
    Extreme heat will eventually degrade Demand CS. We recommend that you find a secure location in your home such as a utility closet or laundry room where you can store the sealed bottle out of reach of children.

    Q
    The ph of my water is 7.5 do I need to use a buffering agent when mixing with Demand CS?
    It specifies a ph of 5 to 7 in the tank mixing Instructions (Turf and Ornamental Dilutions) on the product label. I use the product for perimeter treatments on the outside and inside baseboards of structures.
    A

    The manufacturer recommends that you use a buffering agent when the pH is not between 5-7 per the product label instructions when applying Demand CS.

    Q
    Does Demand CS kill squash bugs?
    A

    While Demand CS could potentially kills squash bugs since it is a non-selective insecticide, you cannot use Demand CS on edible plants like a vegetable garden. We have many other products you could use for squash bugs on edible plants, such as Triple Action or Pyganic Gardening

    Q
    I have Demand CS, how much should I use to kill the tiny black jumping spiders?
    I have used this spray already a few weeks ago, yet I still see the tiny jumping spiders crawling on areas where I sprayed. The spray definitely works on regular house spiders. What should I do?
    A
    Demand CS is a great choice for spider control, but it will take some time for death to occur. For clean out or severe infestions of spiders, including those black jumping spiders, you would want to mix 0.8 fluid oz (24 mL) of Demand CS per gallon of water. Be sure to spray the outside perimeter of your home, spraying 2 to 3 feet up the side of the house and 2-3 feet out on the ground. Also make sure to spray all of your baseboards, any cracks or crevices, window frames and door frames both interior and exterior, or any other place where spiders could gain entry into your home.

  • Asked by Ken from Manchester, Nh

    Q
    Does Demand CS kill bird mites?
    A
    Demand CS is not labeled for mites. 

    Here is our best advice on mite control:

    It is important to be absolutely sure you are actually dealing with mites. Have the suspected mite identified by a reputable source, such as your local cooperative extension office or a reputable pest control operator. Treatments will vary for different pests. Treatment for say bedbugs is much different than the treatment for mites.  If you do indeed have mites, you must first find the source of the infestation, usually a bird nest or a dead rodent on or in the home. Removal of the infested nest or bird and a thorough cleanup is necessary. For treatment in the home, we recommend you frequently vacuum all carpet and upholstery and dispose of the bag or vacuum contents in a sealed bag outdoors. Spray Sterifab on couches, chairs and other upholstered furniture where you may spend time resting. Use Cimexa Dust in all cracks and crevices around the perimeter of the room. Apply a thin coat of MotherEarth dust to rugs and carpets. Rake (not sweep) nap back and forth, causing dust to enter rug or carpet. Let product sit overnight. Repeat application as necessary and vacuum every 3 - 4 days for effective control. MotherEarth dust does not have a fast knockdown, it can take several days for insects to die after they contact the dust. Onslaught can be used for a faster knockdown. Thoroughly apply as a fine particle broadcast spray using a hand pump sprayer to infested rugs and carpets and other cracks and crevices around the perimeter of each room. Put all clothes through the dryer on high heat to help kill mites and their eggs. We have had many customers use the above recommendations with great success. Most customers report that it can take several months to get rid of all of the mites. Finding and removing the source of the infestation is very important and is the key to getting rid of the mites for good.

    Q
    How to get do I rid of caterpillars invading my house.
    I've already sprayed a chemical from Home Depot around my house a couple of months ago and now they are back.
    A
    You can use a product like Demand CS around the perimeter of the home and inside as well.   We have a great video here for General Spray Application to show you where to spray.  Demand CS should be applied once a month outside and once every 90 days inside.  It will not provide an instant knockdown but will instead continue to kill after it has dried.

    Q

    A
    We recommend that you contact the landlord or the company that treated for the specific products that were applied. You then can check with the manufacturer of the products for safety and residual information. It would be a good idea to check with your local vet on what is safe for your cats and what is not with them having breathing issues.

    Q
    What is the best treatment plan for a concrete building with ants and spiders?
    6600 square feet office building, concrete walls, concrete slab floor, ants seem to be coming through the junction of the wall and floor. Occationally, centipedes are found inside. We fog each month, and have some ant baits, but I would like to get rid of these for good. Orkin suggested liquid bait.
    A
    Demand CS would be a great option for both indoor and outdoor treatments for spiders, ants centipedes, and a multitude of other insects. You can refer to the product label for dilution and treatment instructions. The Demand CS will ususally last up to 90 days indoors and at least 30 days indoors.  It will onlyl kill the insects that contact where it has been applied so when dealing with ants you would want to continue to use baits such as those found in our Complete Ant Kit.

    Q
    Can Demand CS be used to blanket spray insulation in an attic?
    A

    Demand CS should only be used around the baseboards, cracks and crevices in an attic. This product should not be sprayed on insulation since it is diluted in water. A better option may be to use insecticide dust such as Delta Dust in the attic.
