  • Asked by Jonathan from Ware, Ma
    09/13/2014
    Q
    Does Martins Viper Insecticide Concentrate give an immediate kill or a quick kill to lessen attacking bees?
    Is this a contact spray concentrate? I want a pesticide or additive along the lines of Exciter. Treating nests at night is not an option in the exterminating business and the more bees that perish quickly the better.
    A
    Martins Viper Insecticide does provide a quick kill for bees. No, Viper is not a contact kill. You will use 1 fl. oz. per gallon of water. ExciteR mixed with the Viper will provide a faster knockdown. It will give it an extra "kick". Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Can Viper be used against termites??

    Martins Viper Insecticide Concentrate will kill termites that come in contact with the treated area.  However, do not recommend Martins Viper Insecticide Concentrate to treat a termite colony.
