Product Overview

Get rid of pesky fleas with Demize EC, an excellent choice for light or heavy flea infestations. Unlike many insecticides that leave you with an unpleasant lingering after-scent, Demize EC has a pleasant orange scent that deodorizes the air as you spray. Demize EC is concentrated liquid that should be added to water and directly applied with a gallon sprayer to problem areas such as rugs, carpets, furniture, pet bedding, baseboards, and cracks and crevices. Apply 3 fl oz per gallon of water for each 1000 square feet for heavy infestations, and 2 fl oz per gallon of water for each 1000 square feet for lighter infestations. While Demize EC is safe to use on pet resting areas, it should never be applied directly to your pet. 16 fl oz.

For heavy infestations, combine with an IGR product such as Nylar IGR for quicker knockdown and effective control.

Mix Demize EC with Nylar IGR and Conquer EC to get quick knockdown, long residual control of adults and up to 210 days of insect growth regulation.

    Demize EC

    By Jc on 07/24/2011

    Verified Purchase

    It took three applications of Demize EC and Precor IGR to finally control the sand flea infestation which is epidemic due to a severe drought here in East Texas. The first application was done with four ounces of Demize and two ounces of Precor in two gallons of water which was sprayed onto the floor in two successive application on immediately after the other. The second and third applications were done with two ounces of Demize and one ounce of Precor in one gallon of water. The second application was done a week after the initial treatment and third application was done a week after the second application. It thus took two weeks (fifteen days) to do the three treatments, and about eighteen days after the first application the fleas had disappeared. Haven't had any more fleas since. The only thing I found slightly objectionable about Demize EC is the odor. But it is a trade off between an "orange" scent and the normal insecticide chemical odor. Fortunately it didn't linger for very long. It is a small price to pay for the effectiveness demonstrated by a mixture of Demize EC and Precor IGR.

    Good flea control

    By K. on 12/30/2011

    Verified Purchase

    I own a dog kennel and use Demize EC for our flea control. It works absolutely great. It is easy to dilute and has a good dilution ratio. While I wouldn't call the smell fantastic it's not offensive and, more importantly, it dissipates quickly. I recommend this product for flea control and/or problems.

    Easily Controls Fleas

    By Darrell on 08/09/2012

    Verified Purchase

    I have been using this product along with Precor for several years after doing some in depth research on flea control.Having 4 cats and a dog it sometimes gets to be a challenge when the flea season starts.The key to controlling fleas is to vaccuum and spray on a regular basis,normally every other day for a week.I treat the wood floors and furniture with no problems to either and no side effects to the animals.Very Happy!!

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Hello, is Demize EC a good product to use indoor to spray ticks? Any recommendations?
A
Demize EC is not labeled for tick control. We recommend the items that come in out Tick Control Kit.

The Tick Control Kit provides you with the professional products necessary to control ticks in and around your home. Unlike other kits you may find, the Do My Own Pest Control kits contain the most effective products available based on the most current research. This kit contains 1 quart (32 oz.) bottle of Permethrin SFR 36.8% and 1 pint (16 oz.) bottle of Archer IGR. Please read below for more information.

Permethrin SFR is a broad spectrum insecticide that offers a quick knockdown of target pests as well as a long lasting residual that lasts for about 90 days indoors and 30 days outdoors. This product may be used indoors and outdoors on turf, lawns, and ornamentals.

Archer IGR is an Insect Growth Regulator that is also photo-stable, meaning that it does not break down easily in direct sunlight. You can use Archer IGR to control insect populations both indoors and outdoors. The Archer IGR unique mode of action disrupts the life cycle of ants, fleas, flies, ticks, cockroaches, mosquitoes and beetles leading to effective population control.

Q
I ordered Demize EC for flea control. I have four cats indoors, plus outside cats that live under my porch, is this product going to do the job?
A
Demize EC is a great choice for flea control because it kills all stages of fleas.  It is also very safe for use around pets.  However, if you have a bad infestation, we highly recommend adding its counterpart, NyGuard IGR.  Adding the NyGuard IGR, will provide long term control and slow down the fleas ability to reproduce which will provide quicker results.

Q
Can I add Premethrin SFR to Demize EC and Precor IGR

While I used Demize EC and Precor IGR, it knocked fleas down during the minutes Demize was wet on a hardwood floor, the fleas came back within hours full force and vacuuming every day to reduce it is not helping much as each round catches over 25 adult fleas alive, although they seem to be getting smaller in sizes. I understand Premethrin has a residual that will continue to kill these young adult fleas for up to two weeks after a spray as the fleas walk across/in the areas such as cracks i sprayed. Could I simply add Premethrin to the Demize EC/Precor IGR mixture or does Premethrin have such as fast knockdown there is no point to Demize being used with it during a single spray of 1000sq ft?

A
Mixing Demize EC + Precor + Permethrin SFR would be a great idea. You will have the quick knockdown of Demize EC, plus residual power of Permethrin SFR, Plus residual IGR power. Be sure to follow the label instructions for mixing.

Q
How long should I wait before letting my young children back in the house after spraying Demize?

I would assume that it needs to simply dry first, but I couldn't find any information on the contaner or the website that answers my question.

A
You are correct! You want to wait until the treated area has dried. This will normally take approx 1-2 hours.

Q
How long should I wait to vacuum after the carpets are treated with Demize EC?

I want to make sure I am giving the chemical enough time to work, but I don't want to stop vacuuming. How often should I vacuum after a treatment? Daily?

A
We would recommend waiting until Demize EC is dry before continuing to vacuum. If you are treating for fleas, you will vacuum daily for 14 days and then do a second treatment and continue to vacuum daily.
