    Q
    What is the approximate cycle time for Onslaught to defeat the yellowjacket nest?
    I mixed three 12 oz batches of Onslaught yesterday. That is 36 ounces and this morning it is all gone. Yes, I have a serious yellowjacket problem. How long before I see an interruption in the hatch cycle and at what approximate interval should I keep rebaiting?
    A
    It can take several weeks for the entire colony to be completely eliminated from the baiting. Give it at least a week before you put more bait out, and make sure you are placing the bait in a place where other animals are not getting access to it and making it seem like it's going faster than it should be even with a heavy yellow jacket population. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    Q
    I have tried tuna and chicken with the Onslaught Yellow Jacket Bait Kit. They do not even care about the stuff.
    Do you have any other suggestions?
    A
    The nutritional needs of yellow jackets change periodically. During the early part of the season, yellow jackets are mainly looking for proteins such as fish or chicken. They will usually forage for proteins first, while they are feeding their developing yellow jackets back at the nest, and this is the best time to bait for them. Using protein baits will also help deter honey bees from entering the bait stations (honey bees are on the decline and it is best to avoid harming them whenever possible). During other parts of the season, yellow jackets are looking for carbohydrate or sugary foods like soda, beer, or fruit juice to help maintain energy levels. We recommend that you put out a couple of different protein baits (fish, chicken) and a couple of different carbohydrate baits (cola, fruit juice) without adding the Onslaught. Leave the bait out for a day or two and see which bait the yellow jackets are attracted to. Once you see which bait they like, then you can add the Onslaught to the mix and put out the bait stations. Be sure to use the recommended usage rate of 1/4 teaspoon of Onslaught per 12 oz. of bait to avoid making the bait repellent to the yellow jackets.

    Onslaught Insecticide is a great general pest control product as it is labeled for over 200 insects. It can be applied to indoor cracks and crevices once every 90 days and outside monthly for control. It is safe when dry. Keep pets off the treated area during application and while wet.

    Q
    How long does Onslaught remain active after its been sprayed on baseboards and around entry ways etc?
    A
    Onslaught Insecticide has a residual time of 2-3 months. When treating for roaches we recommend to reapply Onslaught once every two weeks. You also want to be using Roach bait like Maxforce Magnum roach bait gel.  Using a roach bait will ensure that the active ingredient will be taken back to the nest.

    12/12/2013
    Q
    Can Onslaught Fastcap be mixed with Talstar P or does this make the two products less effective
    A
    These products should not be mixed together. There is no valid reason to mix Onslaught FastCap and Talstar P together.  They are both synthetic pyrethroids so there would be nothing to gain by mixing these products together. Making a pesticide too strong can actually backfire. Areas that are treated with this overly concentrated spray will be repellent and insects will simply avoid the treated areas prolonging the infestation

    Q
    What is your VERY BEST mite control product? Have had moles in yard.
    A
    We appreciate your questions. There are many different types of mites. If you have a mite like spider mites, one of our best products for spider mites is Onslaught. Onslaught Liquid Insecticide is micro-encapsulated, meaning that after the product is sprayed, the active ingredient is released slowly over time, producing long-lasting residual control of insect pests. Please review our Mite Control page.

    Q
    Disappointed in how you are selling Onslaught. Too big a bottle!
    You say to mix 1/4 tsp to 12 oz of bait. Get real! How am I going to dispose of this very toxic liquid! I sure hope there aren't people who pour it down a drain or into their yard or let it run into a nearby creek. You need to sell smaller bottles (say, 2 oz) of Onslaught for about $10. I'll bet you get more customers, and - it will be safer and a lot better for the environment.
    A
    Unfortunately we have no control over the size of the bottle that the manufacturers make their products in.  Onslaught is a great general use insecticide so it can be used for other pests than just baiting for yellow jackets.  Please refer to the product label for complete information on the uses of this product.

    Q
    Is Onslaught used full strength or mixed with water or something else?
    A

    All of the professional liquid products we sell, including Onslaught, come in a concentrate form.  You need to mix the product with water, usually in a one gallon hand pump sprayer.  Please refer to the product label for more detailed application instructions. Onslaught is mixed at 0.5-1 fl oz per gallon of water per 1,000 sq ft.

    Q
    How to kill fleas around the perimeter of the porch in Florida?
    I don't have any pets, but there are squirrels, racoons, & stray cats that wander through our yard & drop fleas/eggs & they of course multiply & become a nuisance. For some unknown reason they jump on me when I sit outside. I've been trying to fight them off for years. I've used Permethrin, Bifenthrin,, IGRs & they seem to have become immune. What/how do you recommend alternating to prevent their immunity to knock these blood suckers out?
    A
    You want to make sure when you are using products for fleas that you are spraying every 2 weeks and not any more often than that so that you aren't creating any resistance issues. Make sure you are keeping your grass short as this makes it harder for the fleas to thrive in your yard. If you believe the fleas are coming from the animals, you may want to try an animal repellent or deterrent to try and drive them away from your yard. One of the best recommendations for flea control we have would be the combination of Onslaught and Nyguard IGR. Onslaught is micro-encapsulated and sits on the surfaces you spray better and holds up to the outdoor elements longer before breaking down. The NyGuard IGR is formulated for fleas and many other insects and can hold up to sunlight for roughly 5 months. If you have tried several products and they are not working, you may want to get a sample of the insect to take to your local Cooperative Extension to get it properly identified by the Entomologist on staff. Treating for the wrong insect can often make your problems worse, so getting an identification from a trained professional is always recommended.

    Q
    How do I spray Onslaught to kill dirt daubers?
    Do I have to spray the ceiling and beams on my patio or can I just spray low around the walls and columns?
    A
    You would want to apply Onslaught to eaves, soffits, door frames, window frames and other areas where mud daubers land and build a nest, so that would include the ceiling and beams.

    Q
    Can you use your sprinklers after using Onslaught and if so how much time before using them?
    I use my sprinklers in the evening to water my junipers where I am spraying for yellow jackets -If i spray in the morning is it OK to do my regular watering or will the onslaught wash off?
    A
    You should allow the areas that were treated with Onslaught to dry for 24 hours before turning on the sprinklers. This will allow the product to bond to the surface so it will not be washed away.

    Q
    How to treat a very heavy infestation of fleas on acreage?
    We are having our house and small yard treated by a local exterminator for heavy flea infestation. They recommended that we spray our outdoor dog runs, out-yard and barn yard with Archer, Onslaught and Exciter (which we have ordered from you) using our 25 gallon gasoline powered spray rig behind our tractor. Do we mix all three products together, or use them separately?
    A
    Onslaught, Archer IGR, and Exciter can all be mixed together following the instructions on each product label for dilution rates.

    Q
    Is Onslaught safe for pets?
    A
    Onslaught is safe to use around animals as long as they are out of the area while you are spraying. They can return as soon as the area is dry. Onslaught is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and will not break down easily with rainfall.

  • Asked by Emily from Minnesota
    06/17/2014
    Q
    Will Onslaught work for bird mites? Is it safe around baby?
    A

    Onslaught is the only product that we have that is labeled for mites in general and is safe when used as directed.  Children should be out of the area while you are doing the treatment until it dries, typically 30 mins to an hour.  Below is our advice on mites:

    It is important to be absolutely sure you are actually dealing with mites. Have the suspected bird mite identified by a reputable source, such as your local cooperative extension office or a reputable pest control operator. Treatments will vary for different pests. Treatment for say bedbugs is much different than the treatment for bird mites.  Removal of the infested nest or bird and a thorough cleanup is necessary. For treatment in the home, we recommend you frequently vacuum all carpet and upholstery and dispose of the bag or vacuum contents in a sealed bag outdoors. Spray Sterifab on couches, chairs and other upholstered furniture where you may spend time resting. Use MotherEarth Dust in all cracks and crevices around the perimeter of the room. Apply a thin coat of MotherEarth dust to rugs and carpets. Rake (not sweep) nap back and forth, causing dust to enter rug or carpet. Let product sit overnight. Repeat application as necessary and vacuum every 3 - 4 days for effective control. MotherEarth Dust does not have a fast knockdown, it can take several days for insects to die after they contact the dust. Onslaught can be used for a faster knockdown. Thoroughly apply as a fine particle broadcast spray using a hand pump sprayer to infested rugs and carpets and other cracks and crevices around the perimeter of each room. Put all clothes through the dryer on high heat to help kill mites and their eggs.We have had many customers use the above recommendations with great success. Most customers report that it can take several months to get rid of all of the mites. Finding and removing the source of the infestation is very important and is the key to getting rid of the mites for good.
