    Q
    Does Equil Lambda have an odor?
    Demand is essentially odorless. Cyonara had a strong enough odor we couldn't use it inside. Is Equil Lambda 9.7 CS odorless like Demand?
    A
    Yes, the Equil-lambda is the same formulation as Demand CS and is virtually odorless.  We have had no customer complaints on the Equil-lambda brand whatsoever.

    Q
    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?
    A

    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.

    Q
    Is Equil Lambda CS similar to Cy-Kick CS and is either more effective on scorpions?
    A
    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.

    Q
    Is Equil Lambda the same product as the Cyonara? I purchased this in a kit just a few weeks ago.
    I thought that when Cyonara was replaced by another product in the kit, it would be with Phantom and not a similar product.
    A
    Equil Lambda is a better product than Cyonara. Equil Lambda CS is micro-encapsulated which means it stays stronger and more effective longer. The Cyonara product is not micro-encapsulated.  Phantom is a very good product, one of the best.  However, the one bottle of Phantom does not make that many finished gallons because it requires 3 oz. per gallon of water, and it is very expensive. While it is an excellent product for bed bug treatment, we still have to walk a fine line of affordable, yet effective bed bug treatments. We do allow our customers to substitute products, so if you wanted to use Phantom instead then you can still get the kit and just pay the difference between the Equil Lambda CS and the Phantom.

    Q
    Does Equil Lamdba work well for mosquito treatment? At what rate should it be mixed?
    Surrounded by trees and shade areas on 2 sides of our property as well as throughout the yard. Planning to spray all tree lines and shaded areas. Commercial applicator sprayed approx 80 gallons of water last season with the chemical he used (I believe he used Equil Lambda with Lesco Spreader Sticker. How should I be mixing Equil Lambda for this purpose? Any recommendations? Is the Spreader sticker necessary? Do you carry it?
    A
    Equil Lambda does work for mosquitoes. You will need to use 0.8 fl. oz. (24 mL) of Equil per gallon of water for each 1,000 sq ft area for residual mosquito control. The addition of a spreader-sticker at specified rates may enhance the control of insects on certain species of ornamentals having waxy, hard to wet foliage. We do carry Hi Yield Spreader Sticker which can be added to the Equil Lambda dilution.

    Q
    How effective is Equil Lambda in killing and controlling bed bugs?
    Once applied how does it work? Does it leave a residual that continues to kill the bugs and how often should I retreat using it?
    A

    Equil is labeled for controlling bedbugs and will leave a residual that can last up to 10 days for bedbug control. We do not recommend that you use any product by itself for bedbug control as bedbugs can build resistance to products. Instead you should be using a dust insecticide and an aerosol with the Equil in a bedbug treatment plan. Please take a look at our bedbug kits as they contain the products we recommend for bedbug control.

    Q
    anything overall better than Tempo SC for mosquito control (combined effectiveness and longevity)
    Not concerned with larval control - only adult mosquito. Tempo has always done an exxcellent job regarding combined kill, repellancy and longevity - and relatvie human safety. Just wontering if any newer products might be even better.
    A
    Micro-encapsulated insecticides tend to last longer outdoors that suspended concentrates and for that reason a product like Equil Lambda 9.7 CS would be a great upgrade. Equil Lambda features EnduraCap technology which protects the active ingredient in even the toughest environments, allowing Lambda 9.7 to continue killing pests long after you've sprayed.  Plus, the advanced EnduraCap technology protects the active ingredient from heat and harsh UV rays when sprayed outdoors.
