    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.

    As long as it is not freezing outside you can safely use Demand CS outdoors. Since the product is water based trying apply it in below freezing temperatures would not yield positive results.

    Q
    Using Demand CS For Stink Bugs
    I used D-fense SC (Active Ingredient : 4.75% Deltamethrin) but it did not get rid of my Stink Bugs in the house. So I have 3 questions. #1 Can I use Demand CS right now even though I sprayed the D-fense SC? $2 What areas do I need to spray Demand CS? Is spraying the window frames, house brick walls, and foundation good enough? #3 Lastly is Demand SC safe on aluminum window clad and composite frames?
    A
    Yes, you can use Demand SC even though you have already sprayed, although you would want to wait 7 days between treatments. Stink Bugs will try to emerge in the spring and common places that people find stinks bugs are in the window sills and this is a great place to treat along with the baseboards, back behind and underneath appliances, in attics, and where pipes enter the the wall. Demand SC is safe on aluminum and composite frames and will not harm any surface that is tolerable to water.

    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
    How can I stop Demand CS from staining the wood floors?
    I spay demand sc and it stains the wood floor and base boards. It can then be wiped off but is a pain too do. I used pest tabs in the past and did not have this problem. What should I do to eliminate the stains?
    A

    If Demand CS is leaving a visible residue, then we would recommend to use a lower dilution rate (0.2-0.4 oz. per gallon of water). Also, be sure you are only spraying as a spot and/or crack and crevice treatment. You could also consider going to an insecticide that is not micro-encapsulated, such as Talstar P. If you are removing all the reside, then you would need to reapply the insecticide.

    Q
    Do I have to worry about Demand CS harming nearby small bird families ?
    I want to thoroughly spray the outside of my house about mid August. Small birds tend to fly around my house a lot as they like to nest under my porch.
    A
    When used as directed on the product label, Demand CS is safe to use outdoors in areas where birds frequent. Be sure the birds are out of the area when the Demand is being applied and try to keep the birds away until the area is dry.

    Q
    I'd like to spray my yard with Demand CS for ticks.
    However, we have a TON of (now flowering) clover this year, and the bees are everywhere. I certainly don't want to risk hurting them ! This also brings up another question- are there any other "good" bugs that Demand might kill inside or outside the house besides bees ? Thanks.
    A
    Demand CS is not a selective insecticide and it will kill most insects that contact the treated area. We recommend learning how to create a tick free zone around your yard and only spraying in those areas where ticks are known to inhabit. Make sure the property around your home is unattractive to ticks. Because ticks are sensitive to dry conditions and do not thrive in short vegetation, they are seldom a problem in well-maintained lawns. Keep your grass mowed and keep weeds cut. Clean up items that attract rodents which can carry ticks, such as spilled birdseed, and hiding places like old wood piles. If ticks are present in vegetation along the edge of the property, insecticides labeled for control of ticks can be applied to small areas of high weeds that cannot be mowed. Often, one or two applications per season will be adequate to control ticks in these areas.

    What is the mix rate for using Demand CS when using the Chapin Wet/Dry Hose End Sprayer for Japanese Beetles?
    When using a Chapin Hose End sprayer connected to a water hose, what should I set the dial at in order to kill Japanese beetles?
    A

    When using Demand CS to treat Japanese Beetles, the mix rates vary depending if you are treating the lawn or ornamentals. Please refer to the product label for application instructions. 

    Lawn Mix Rates: 3.4 - 7ml (0.1 to 0.2 fl oz) per 1,000 square feet / 5-10 fl per acre 

    Ornamental Rates: 0.4 - 1.3ml (1.5 to 5fl oz) used in 25 gallons of water. 

    For spot treatments, use 0.5 fl oz Demand CS Insecticide per 1–2 1/2 gal of water.

    Since water is acting as the carrier, each treatment and the amount of water that will be used is specific to the individual treatment. Please take a moment to review our How to use the Chapin Wet or Dry Hose End Sprayer Video for tips on how to set the dial for this sprayer.

    Q
    How do I safely clean up Demand CS that has been sprayed on the floor instead of in cracks/crevices?
    We used Demand CS to control carpet beetles but we incorrectly sprayed the product along the floor, about a foot from the wall, around the entire perimeter of our condo (rather then just using as a crack/crevice treatment). What is the best way to clean our floor to remove the product? We are concerned about our little dog walking on the product.
    A

    Demand CS can be wiped up with hot water and soap. The product is safe for your dog even if over sprayed on the floor after it has completely dried.

    Q
    If Demand CS is left outside for an extended period of time, is the product still going to be effective?
    A

    Generally speaking, all insecticides need to be kept at room temperature area to prolong shelf life.  You don't want to expose any insecticide to direct sunlight, high heat or freezing temperatures, as this could break the product down, and it will lose effectiveness.  If your bottle of  Demand CS was left outside for a week, there is a good chance it could be ok, depending on what the temperatures were that week.  If the product isn't seperated at all or clumpy and mixes well with water, then it should still be fine to use, but it may not have the residual that it had before these conditions.
