How long after application is Pyrocide 100 effective?

Is Pyrocide 100 similar to products used by professional exterminators for control of household small black ants and Hobo spiders?


Pyrocide 100 is a fogging solution and like all other fogging solutions it is a contact kill.  This means it does not leave a residual and once it is dry its effectiveness is over. It will only kill what is out in the open when it is applied. If you want to use the most popular product used by professional companies, then you should look at Talstar P.  It lasts 60 - 90 days and is labeled for over 80 different insects including ants and spiders, and is the most widely used insecticide by professional companies.
