    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
    Will Demand CS work for fleas (indoors & outdoors)? How long after mixing Demand CS with water should it be used?
    A

    Demand CS would only be recommended for outdoor control of fleas.  It is not labeled for indoor flea control.  You would use 0.4 fl oz per gallon of water for outdoor flea control.  For indoor flea control, Onslaught would be the better option.  We do also recommend using an insect growth regulator such as Nyguard inside and out.  We have a great flea control guide here with more information.

    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.

    Q
    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
    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.

    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.

    Q
    Is Demand CS toxic to honeybees?
    I am only spraying directly on my log home.
    A

    Since Demand CS is an insecticide, it could potentially harm honeybees which were sprayed directly or which came into contact with treated areas. We always recommend that you spray in the morning or evening when pollinators like bees are less active, and that you avoid spraying on flowering plants where they may be active. Usually there is not a danger to bees or other pollinators if you are just spraying around the perimeter of your home. We do offer Mavrik Perimeter, which is a broad-spectrum insecticide that is non-toxic and non-repellent to bees once dry.

    Q
    Demand CS and Chapin Hose-End Sprayer... what ratio?
    I would like to use the Demand CS for Mosquito Control with the hose-end sprayer but am not sure of the ratio?.. How to set the dial?
    A

    First, you need to determine how many gallons of water you will be using. To find out how many gallons of water you need to use you will calculate the square footage of the area to be treated(Dmeand CS recommend 1 gallon of mixed solution 1,000 sq feet). For instance, if you have a 6,000 square foot yard that you plan on treating then you would need to multiply 6 x 0.8 which equals 4.8 – You would then add 4.8 oz of Demand CS to the reservoir. Once you add the desired amount of Demand CS to the reservoir, then you would add water to the line selected (6 gallon line mark on the reservoir). You would then set the dial on the top of the Chapin Hose End Sprayer to 6 gallons. Do not turn water on when adjusting the spray nozzle. Next, select the desired spray pattern and then spray until the reservoir is empty.

    Q
    Can I use this on the perimeter of my house one week after applying Ortho Home Defense?
    Would the two interact or neutralize the Demand CS? How long do I need to wait?
    A
    There wouldn't be any problem using Demand CS after using Ortho Home Defense. While each product contains a different active ingredient both products are from the same class of insecticides, synthetic pyrethroids, and they will not counter act each other. You should wait at least 7 days before applying Demand CS to areas where you applied Ortho Home Defense.
