    The best for those nasty caterpillars

    By Tracy on 05/14/2011

    Verified Purchase

    I love this stuff. I had issues with caterpillars eating my Oleanders but not any more. This stuff is great!   It also keeps my house ant free, a real feat in S. Florida.

    By Jdm on 06/13/2011

    I ordered this and it seems to have worked fine for me, I don't see any Carpenter Bees anymore, and it has cut back the amount of Horseflies and Mosquitoes.

    The use of Dragnet SFR

    By Christi on 10/15/2012

    Verified Purchase

    Last year I used this product and it worked. Now I don't know if it was also in combination with the Applecider Vinegar that I had put on the lawn 2 weeks before that helped to kill a massive infestation of fleas, but we have not had a problem again till a month ago, so I reordered this product... this time it did not work, so I suggest that if you're gonna work with this product, also use the Applecider Vinegar with it.

    great stuff

    By Burla on 05/24/2014

    Kills literally all insects and stays in ground for termite control, and best part is safe for humans and kids and all other mammals. mix an ounce with a gallon and that is plenty to kill all insects. I have been using this stuff for almost a decade, and I haven't come close to using the gallon yet, not even half. A little goes a long way............ Only a small flower smell too, this is very refreshing and safe. Will kill fish, so don't use near ponds.

    Long ago

    By Ron on 05/07/2011

    It seems they changed the formulations "inert ingredients". From long ago, as I recall, it could be used as a flea dip no more.

Questions & Answers

Q
How do I get rid of pine beetles?
A
Unfortunately, there is no easy solution when it comes to pine beetles. Infected trees should be cut down (before the newly hatched beetles fly out of the trees in the spring/summer) and the wood burned or chipped, while other still healthy trees should be sprayed annually to protect them. Because of the natural boring behavior of the beetle they are protected from topically applied insecticides and systemic insecticides (those injected into the tree or applied as a root drench) have proven ineffective for pine beetle infestations. Healthy trees can be protected before the beetles attack by topically spraying them with a product called Dragnet. The tree should be sprayed from the ground to 15 ft up the trunk to prevent future infestations.

Q
How long is Dragnet SFR effective against treating fleas indoors?

I have called the exterminator twice within the span of about 2 weeks to treat fleas indoors. I was wondering if it doesn't last long, or does it just kill the fleas that are on the ground at the time...My dog is on a topical monthly flea treatment, but she seems to get bitten as soon as she comes back into our home despite having the place sprayed twice with the product...Any answers will be helpful. Thank you

A
Dragnet SFR does have a residual but it is not typically very long. Only a few weeks.  However, the bigger issue is if the company did not use an IGR, which is an insect growth regulator.  IGR's are essential when treating fleas because it prevents them from reproducing and laying more eggs.  Also, Dragnet SFR will not kill flea eggs, so when the company comes to spray they are probably killing some of the adults but not any eggs.  So after they leave and over the next few weeks you have new flea eggs hatching.  This is why our indoor flea kit comes with an easy to use aerosol can with flea killer and IGR in one can.  Also, you should be vacuuming thoroughly before the flea treatment and then you need to treat exactly 14 days later since flea eggs hatch every 2 weeks.
