    Q
    CanIi spray Demand Cs when the weather is yucky and rain off and on?
    if i spray DemandCS just before it rains will the rain wash the chemicals off ?
    A
    You should wait to apply Demand CS on a day when rain is not expected. The product cannot adhere to wet surfaces and rain would wash it away if the application had not had a chance to dry before the rain came.

    Q
    We have Asian beetles that are taking over our cabin. There are hundreds of them inside and out. Help!
    A

    Demand CS is labeled for a variety of insects, including Asian Beetles. The key is to treat early enough (early fall) and to apply the product in the right places. Asian beetles enter the structure through cracks and crevices, especially around windows and doors. Be sure to treat these areas thoroughly once a month through November.   You should spray Demand CS outdoors around your door frames, window frames, vents, eaves, around the bottom of your foundation, and any other crack or crevice where an insect could gain entry.

    Unfortunately, if you are dealing with them in your house right now you will only see limited results. These move into structures to overwinter. They usually squeeze into wall voids, false ceilings, attics and other areas that are inaccessible to people and insecticides. As the heat kicks on in the house, the bugs warm up and start becoming active and emerge from hiding, driving homeowners nuts. Because most folks usually have no idea where the bugs are harboring you can only treat around baseboards, door frames and window frames and hope the insects will emerge where you have sprayed. After they contact the treated areas, it can take several hours for them to die. It is still worth spraying now to get rid of some of the bugs, but you will keep seeing them until spring when they will emerge en masse and leave your home.

    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
    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
    What’s the difference between Temprid FX and Demand CS?
    A

    Temprid FX combines the fast-acting power of beta-cyfluthrin 10.5% and the transferal power of imidacloprid 21% (two powerful active ingredients). Demand CS containing lambda-Cyhalothrin 9.7% is a product that has micro-encapsulated technology, which means it leaves thousands of micro particles that bind to the surface offering long-term protection and fast insect knock-down. Both of these great insecticides can be used on a large variety of insects in many settings.

    Does Demand CS kill squash bugs?

    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
    09/05/2014
    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.

    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.

  • Asked by Joaquin from Miami, Florida
    12/30/2018
    Q
    Can you apply Demand SC directly to a bed (mattress) where humans sleep?
    Friend has fleas/ticks in her house she wants to know if it’s safe to apply it to her bed because she sleeps with her dog.
    A

    No, Demand CS  is NOT labeled for applications to mattresses where humans sleep directly for your safety. NyGuard Plus is labeled for ticks and fleas and it can be applied to the mattress. Spray only surfaces that cannot be laundered or dry-cleaned including mattresses and upholstered furniture. Apply on mattresses as a spot treatment to mattress seams, edges, buttons, and tufts of bed only. Do not use directly on pillows, bed linens, or cloths. Do not saturate the mattress and do not treat entire surface area of the mattress. Allow mattress to dry thoroughly before replacing pillows and/or bed linens. You will wash and dry linens in heat to eradicate any present fleas or ticks and allow the product to completely dry prior to making the bed. Please take a few moments to review our How to Get Rid of Fleas and How to Get Rid of Ticks articles for more detailed information.
