Liquid insecticide concentrates are the most popular formulation of pest control products with homeowners and professionals alike. Insecticide concentrates can be mixed with water at different rates depending on the size of your home or yard and the severity of your infestation, and many are labeled for use against multiple pests and application sites.
There are several reasons you may choose liquid insecticide concentrates. We recommend using them for general insect control around your home. Liquid insecticides work well for this because they make it easier to create an even barrier of insecticide all the way around your home.

Some other common uses of liquid insecticide sprays include:
Systemic insecticides are usually found in liquid form. A plant absorbs this chemical where it is moved throughout the plant’s tissue. Target pests (sap suckers like mites and scales, for example) ingest the chemical along with plant’s tissues.
Pyrethrin insecticides are a very popular choice for organic gardeners or those who are less enthusiastic about using caustic chemicals in their yards, and are commonly found in liquid formulations. They are derived from the chrysanthemum plant and can be synthetic or natural and can control a wide variety of pests. While they come from natural ingredients, they can still be toxic so always use caution.
Organic, pet-safe, natural insecticides can be found in liquid form. While they may not non-toxic, they can have a very low level of toxicity and can be used more safely around pets and children.
