INSECT CONTROL

INDOORS

D-FENSE SC may be applied in and around residential and non-residential buildings including residential kitchens and food/feed handling establishments.

Mix D-FENSE SC with water and apply indoors as a crack and crevice, spot or general surface treatment with hand pressurized or power operated sprayers or other suitable equipment.

For residential buildings and structures - apply only as a crack and crevice or spot treatment.

Crack and Crevice: Apply D-FENSE SC spray mixture to cracks and crevices in and around baseboards, floors, walls, appliances, areas around water and sewer pipes, and other voids with a low pressure system using a pinpoint or variable pattern nozzle.

Spot Treatment: Apply D-FENSE SC as a spot treatment in and around cupboards, and between, beneath and behind equipment or appliances using a low pressure system with fan-type nozzle.

OUTDOORS

Apply D-FENSE SC as a perimeter treatment, residual spray or broadcast application to lawns, grounds and ornamental plantings.

Apply as a perimeter treatment or residual spray around residential and non-residential settings. Treatments should begin at the first sighting of pests.

Residual Spray: Apply D-FENSE SC as a coarse low-pressure spray at the rate of 0.75 to 1.5 fl.oz. to surfaces of buildings, porches, screens, window frames, eves, patios, refuse dumps, garages and lawns.

Perimeter Treatments: For best results, apply D-FENSE SC to areas where pests are seen and may find entrance. Treat a band of soil or lawn up to 6 -10 feet wide around and adjacent to buildings and treat the building foundation to a height of 2 to 3 feet. Apply as a coarse spray at the rate of 0.25 to 1.5 fl. oz. of D-FENSE SC in sufficient amount of water. (See Mixing Directions for Perimeter Application below). Use an adequate volume to thoroughly and uniformly wet the barrier area but do not allow run-off to occur.

    HORRIBLE FOR COCKROACHES

    By Herbert on 01/07/2012

    Verified Purchase

    I give this product a ZERO rating for cockroaches. We have applied every drop of what we bought and it seems the roaches are actually thriving on the elixor. We have found no evidence of dead roaches and in fact on several occasions, i have seen them actually drinking the liquid as it was being applied. I wouldn't waste my money on this product again.

Questions & Answers

Q
D-Fense SC (Suspend SC) vs Bifen IT (Talstar)

Do you guys have any opinions in comparing D-Fense SC (Suspend SC) vs Bifen IT (Talstar) for a generic spray insecticide? How is one better than the other? What are the pros/cons of each? Should I use both (one indoor vs one outdoor)? I have a family with young children living with me, so obviously they'd have to be safe. Looking for your opinions comparing the two.

A
Both the D-Fense SC and the Bifen IT contain synthetic pyrethroids for active ingredients and will provide very similar results. The only advantage to using Bifen IT is that it is known to be super gentle on most plants (do not use on edible vegetation). Both products can be used indoors and outdoors and both products are safe to use in houses with children and pets.

Q
Is D-Fense SC as safe as Suspend SC? I have many kids playing in a yard treated with Suspend. Needs to be as safe.
A
D-Fense SC contains the same active ingredient as Suspend SC so you will need to follow the same precautions as you would if you were using Suspend SC. Children need to be out of the area while you are applying the D-Fense SC and they can safely come back in the area as soon as it is dry.

Q
How many linear feet of indoor space will 1 gallon of D-Fense (diluted/mixed) cover?

I am considering doing my own home pest control. I have scorpions. I am looking at this as my interior perimeter pesticide. I need to determine how much is required to do my house.

A
It all depends on the person applying it of course, but typically one gallon D-fense will treat 1000 square feet, but if you are only spraying baseboards, underneath appliances, etc....then usually 1/2 gallon of solution is plenty to treat the inside of any home.
