Benefits of Lambda CyHalothrin in a Micro Encapsulation
By Don on 10/14/2014
Lambda-cyhalothrin is a very good chemical and I especially like it in a micro encapsulated formulation. I decided to switch to this chemical over four years ago for controlling Asian Ladybug Beetles, Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs, and Kudzu bugs. It has worked better than any other chemical we had been using up to that point. If this chemical continues to perform like I believe it will we will continue to use it. Originally we used another brand and based off of the claims from their cut sheet I had several questions and called the factory to speak with the plant chemists. The plant chemists answered the first two questions. When I asked about the longevity claims based off of their datasheet inquiring if their Polymer Encapsulation media contained an ultraviolet inhibitor to get that long of a life he started screaming about not revealing any proprietary information and slammed the phone down. It was an honest question and guess I got my answer. Spiders are always a problem even with spraying chemicals and webbing. Unless the chemical gets on the spiders body it does no good. The spiders just continue to walk through life on their stilt legs with no effect. Since this product is a micro encapsulated formulation we have started using it for spider control hoping that the spiders will bump into one of those millions of little landmines left behind after the water evaporates and get a dose of chemical helping to control their numbers. Having earned advanced degrees in both chemistry and business I look at the Pest Control products we use in the company from several viewpoints. Those include: the chemical makeup, effectiveness on targeted pests, toxicity to pets and people, and also cost/benefit. It is tough sometimes to separate the chemistry side from the business/service side. I hope this has been of benefit to you. Thank You, Don
I purchased this with the intent of eliminating a scorpion infestation (along with all the spiders, crickets and cockroaches!) this product was fantastic! Not a single scorpion in sight within the past month and lots of DEAD bugs.
Seen multiple carpenter bees squirming on the ground the following day with minimal sightings on the structure. Left garage door open and that is the only place I have not sprayed yet and see activity. They are next. Now when I see an insect on any of my structures....Dead Bug Walking!
When Equil Lambda 9.7 is applied as directed on the product label it will not be washed away with rainfall. Once Equil has been applied on a surface and has been allowed to dry it will not re-constitue with rainfall or wash away.
What is the best time to spray Equil Lambda 9.7 CS in my yard, day or night?
I just bought a Stihl SR 200 sprayer and a bottle of Equil Lambda. My yard is about 3/4 acre of grass and an inground pool area. The perimeter is all heavily wooded. When is the best time to spray? At night or in the day?
We advise to do any insecticide spray applications with the Equil Lambda 9.7 CS within the early morning or late evening during the cooling hours of the day so that the product can dry and settle into the area without affecting the chemicals in the product for the best result. You should avoid spraying in an area where the direct or overspray would contaminate the pool.
Is Equil Lambda CS similar to Cy-Kick CS and is either more effective on scorpions?
Equil Lambda CS and Cy-Kick CS are very similar. The CS on a products name means it is microencapsulated, which means the product has a long residual and will last longer outside and is easier for insects and scorpions to pick up on their bodies. So they are both microencapsulated and both have long residuals. They do have different active ingredients, which is the only difference. Both products are very good at killing scorpions and other insects. Although Cy-Kick CS has been around longer, Equil Lambda CS is our best selling generic product and therefore works just as well for a lot less money.
