Exponent has no insecticidal properties of its own. It is only made to be mixed with other liquid insecticides to make them more effective.
Exponent will increase the speed of kill and level of control of pyrethroids, fogging solutions and other insecticide concentrates including Onslaught. Exponent is an emulsifiable concentrate and can be mixed directly with other liquid insecticide mixtures to aid in the control of target insects.
I bought this stuff to use with the Cyper WP. I use this for Fire ants, Roaches, around the outside of the house to attempt to keep the bugs from coming inside the house. Helps the effectiveness of the Cyper WP. I have used this with Orthene on ants and it also works well.
I have used this with tempo to keep bugs at Bay and it works. From bed bugs with temprid fx to ants and earwigs I have killed them all and each time I have used the exponent. I love it and it's decently priced.
I was wondering if Exponent works as a residual with another insecticide like Onslaught for faster kill? Or does it work at the time of spraying only and not improve the residual effect of onslaught?
Exponent is not a residual. It is a contact kill product, or a "hot" product, meaning it adds a knock down punch to the product you add it to. It is typically used with products like Onslaught that have long residuals, but not fast knock down qualities when they are applied. Adding exponent will basically kill any insects that it touches when it is applied very quickly. Once dry, exponent does not leave a residual and will not kill anything after it dries and evaporates.
I am trying to get rid of a large infestation of roaches in my house. Can I try Exponent?
Exponent is only a synergizing agent and by itself, will not actually be able to kill insects. We recommend that you use the products contained in our Roach Control Kit #2. This professional kit includes 1 packet of Demon WP Insecticide (which makes 4 gallons of finished solution) for spraying the outside perimeter of the home and inside underneath appliances, behind cabinets, under toilets and sinks, etc. You'll also get 4 x 30 gram tubes of Advion Roach Bait Gel--one of the best roach baits on the market. Advion can be applied up high in the kitchen in the corner of cabinets and in cracks and crevices in kitchens and bathrooms. The bait contains a slow-acting poison that attracts and kills feeding roaches, who also spread the bait to other roaches by contact or by sharing food. Finally, 20 Gentrol Point Source stations provide an IGR (Insect Growth Regulator) that will stop roaches from laying eggs, helping to halt the infestation. The combination of an IGR with roach bait is a highly effective roach control strategy that is widely used by pest control professionals
