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.
Demize EC kills all stages or fleas on contact only and will not leave any residual that will continue to kill after it has tried, so one application will not completely eliminate fleas. Mixing Demize EC + NyGuard IGR + Onslaught would be a great idea. You will have the quick knockdown of Demize EC, plus residual power of Onslaught, plus residual IGR power. Be sure to follow the label instructions for mixing. Please read over our "How to Get Rid of Fleas" article as well for further advice.
