We apologize you are having an issue with the Demon WP. We have never had anyone complain that it came out as a muddy color. The powder is usually a darker off white color and when mixed with water the solution is usually an off white creamy color. With many products the colors can vary a bit depending on the source of the raw materials and that may be the case with this product as well. We recommend contacting the manufacturer directly so that they can troubleshoot with you and see what may have happened. They may ask you some questions about the numbers on the envelope so they can see if there was a problem with a certain batch. You can reach Syngenta by calling 866-796-4368.
The 11/2012 is the date the product was released for sale, not the expiration date.
Demon WP Insecticide can be taken up with hot water and soap. After the area has dried, you can replace the cooking supplies.
Demon WP Insecticide needs to be used within 24 hours of mixing with water. In the original envelope it has a 5 year shelf life if kept out of extreme temperatures and direct sunlight.
Demon WP would be a good option for you. This is a wettable powder that you mix with water and apply using a hand pump sprayer. It works great for flying insects like wasps. You can spray the underside of the deck with the mixed solution. This will not repel the wasps, but when they land on the surface they should pick up the product and die within a few hours. Demon WP can also be used as a perimeter spray around the house. You may also want to take a look at our article on How to Get Rid of Wasps for more information on treating and preventing wasps.
These products should not be mixed together. There is no valid reason to mix Demon WP/Cyper WP and Talstar P/Bifen IT together. Talstar P/Bifen IT is a synthetic pyrethroid and Demom WP/Cyper WP already contains a synthetic pyrethroid, so there would be nothing to gain by mixing these products together. Making a pesticide too strong can actually backfire. Areas that are treated with this overly concentrated spray will be repellent and insects will simply avoid the treated areas prolonging the infestation.
Once Demon WP has dried, it is safe for your pets to be in the area that was treated.
