To provide increased control of resistant German Cockroaches:

    Death in a bottle !

    By Jasen on 08/12/2013

    I spent hundreds of dollars trying to kill fleas this year. Finally I found the magic bullet. By mixing ExciteR, precor, and talstar I got all the life stages of the flea covered and instant relief from those nagging little bastards. Well worth the expense.......you know what they say buy quality the first time and you only cry once........not over and over and over again.

    ExciteR Insecticide

    By Brian on 05/04/2012

    Verified Purchase

    Exciter is awesome. I worked for a small pest control company when I was in high school and we used exciter and cynoff for roaches. I sprayed the small backyard apartment I lived in which was infested with roaches. Never saw another live one. Great product for initial kill but has a short residual. That's why it is good to mix with cynoff which has a 3 month residual. Which means you only have to apply every 3 months.

    Kills Yellow Jackets Instantly

    By Christy on 09/12/2012

    Verified Purchase

    This stuff is amazing. My husband bought ExciteR Insecticide and uses it with a pump sprayer. It's made of pyrethrum, a natural extract made from the crushed flowers of the African chrysanthemum. As soon as he sprays the nest the yellow jackets start dying. They drop all around his feet, and the ones that are alive act all dopey. They start falling soon after. You might have to spray two or three times to eliminate the entire infestation, but it works great. Best of all, YOU WON'T GET STUNG. My husband has sprayed 7 or 8 nests and never been stung once!

Q
Can ExciteR be used with a micro encapsulated pesticide such as Cy-Kick CS and Bifenthrin?
A
Yes, ExciteR Insecticide can be used for that extra punch in any insecticide product that we carry.  The only products you would not want to use ExciteR in are non-repellent products which of there are only two on our site, Termidor SC and Phantom.

Q
When can I wash off pyrethrin spray used on kitchen counter tops and floor?

the exterminator told me i couldn't wash the countertops or floor for 3 weeks in order to retain the insecticide's power to take down roaches. but it is so dirty and gross looking with the insecticide residue splattered over everything--i don't know if i can wait another 2 weeks before i am able to clean again. for now i have been using the stove top for food prep--which is very limiting also. so is it true--i really can't clean anything yet??

A
While we will not comment on your exterminator's work, we will advise you on how pyrethrin sprays are usually used for roach control. Most pyrethrin sprays have wording like this on the product label "Remove or cover exposed food and cover foodhandling surfaces in edible product areas of food handling areas" or "Cover or remove all food processing surfaces. Thoroughly wash all food processing surfaces before reuse".  Roach control sprays are usally applied directly into crack and crevices where roaches spend most of their time, not on surfaces where the roaches are unlikely to make direct contact. Also, while pyrethrin may irritate roaches for a couple of days after it has been applied, it is only likely to kill the roaches while it is wet.

Q
Can you combine ExciteR with Temprid?

Can ExciteR be added to Temprid? The reason I'm asking is since imidacloprid is a non-repellant, will adding more pyrethrins reduce its effectiveness? I'm actually curious as to how Bayer was able to combine a pyrethroid and a non-repellant in the 1st place.

A
Yes, you can combine ExciteR with Temprid SC.  ExciteR is merely a "hot" additive that packs a punch and kills insects rather quickly for a short period of time but it does not leave a long term residual.  Since the other products in Temprid do leave a long term residual but do not really pack an initial punch, it is often recommended to add a product like ExciteR for a faster knockdown.  As far as your comment about combining Imidacloprid with Cyfluthrin, the manufacturer did not combine these two together expecting them to be used as a non-repellent and have insects pass the product on.  They combined the two solely based on how they effect the insect and their long term ability to leave a long term residual.  Temprid is not used as a non-repellent product and so it is ok to mix the products.
