    Q
    Will Permethrin SFR kill black widow and brown recluse spiders? Is it safe for gardens, children, and pets?
    will permethrin sfr get rid of black widows and brown widows or is there a better product for these spiders? Please tell me the dangers for small children, animals and an organic garden. Thank you
    A
    Brown recluse spiders and black widow spiders share the same biology as every other species of spiders and are not any harder to kill than other spiders. Permethrin SFR is labeled for spiders and should do a great job in helping you eliminate spiders in and around your home. Permethrin SFR is safe around children and pets as long as they are kept out of the area during the application and they do not return to the area until it is dry. Permethrin SFR should not be used in an organic garden because it is a synthetic product and it is not labeled for use on most types of edible plants.

    Q
    Can I use Permethrin SFR on my dog? If so, how much product should I use per gallon of water?
    I just got a 3 yr old pit bull and he has lots of ticks.
    A
    Yes, you can use Permethrin SFR on your dog. You should use ¼ fl. oz of product to 1¼ gallons water then thoroughly wet the animal to the skin with sponge or rag. Let drip dry. You can find these instructions on page 16 of the Permethrin SFR product label which we have linked in this answer for your convenience but is always available on the Permrthrin SFR product page.

    Q
    Using Permethrin SFR how many oz per quart water for mix of .5%?
    A
    You will need to use 1 2/3 fl. oz. for each gallon of water to get a 0.5% ratio. If you only need to mix one quart of solution at a time you will need to use just under 1/2 (0.43) oz of Permethrin SFR per quart of water to get a 0.5% mixture.

    Q
    What is the best product to get rid of ticks when you have about a 1/2 acre of trees on your property?
    I am buying a house that has a lot of trees on the property and I am worried about ticks. Please tell me the best product to get rid of ticks when you have about a 1/2 acre of trees on your property. All the products I read about talk about minimizing ticks in gardens or grassy areas.
    A
    The best products we can recommend for tick control would be the Permethrin SFR mixed with the NyGuard IGR. The Permethrin SFR is the killing agent that will kill and repel the ticks in the areas that you treat. The NyGuard IGR is a birth control to keep the ticks from reproducing and to keep immature stages of the ticks from growing into reproducing adults. These two products can be mixed together and sprayed at the same time for a letal combo to the tick population. Spraying with the Permethrin SFR every 2 weeks at first can be needed and then back off to every 30-60 days. The NyGuard will hold up typically 3-4 months outdoors.

    Q
    Can I dilute your permethrin to treat (soak) my clothes like the Sawyer product?
    Is there any reason I couldn't buy your 36% permethrin and dilute it to the same .5% that comes in OUtdoor clothing applications for use in treating clothing to repel mosquitos?
    A
    You cannot use the Permethrin SFR on clothing at all. Even though the products contain the same active ingredients, the formulations are very different and most  of our permethrin products contain chemicals that are unsafe to have next to your skin. We do carry Tick Block which is an appropriate formulation for clothing.

  • Asked by Leah from Warrior, Al

    Q
    What is mixture ratio to spray cattle for flies with Permethrin SFR?
    Want to mix 2 gallons.
    A
    The product label for the Permethrin SFR gives a few different rates for applying to cattle.

    For Horn flies, face flies, stable flies, house flies, horse flies, deer flies, black flies, eye gnats,
    mange mites, scabies mites, ticks, lice and sheep keds you would use 4 fl. oz. to 25 gallons water (treats 50-100 head).
    That breaks down to about .16 fl oz per 1 gallon.
    For Horn flies, face flies, stable flies, ear ticks and lice you would use 4 fl. oz. to 2½ gallons
    water (treats 64-80 head).
    Please refer to the product label for complete instructions for your specific application.

    Q
    Does permethrin SFR expire?
    I bought some about a year ago but did not use it all. I need to use it again. Would it still work?
    A
    Most all insecticides we sell do not have an expiration date, but most manufacturers place at least a 5 year shelf life on their products.  Most can last longer, but the manufacturers recommend you use them within at least 5 years, so your bottle is still plenty good.

    Q
    I have a flea infestation that I cant get under control. How much do I need to treat inside house 1200 sq foot?
    Is it for yard & home?
    A
    With Permethrin SFR 36.8%, you will use 1 2/3 fl. oz. per gallon of water. We do recommend mixing this with an IGR (insect growth regulator) for your first treatment. This is like a birth control for the fleas and will stop them from laying eggs. Archer IGR is a good product to use. You will need to vacuum everyday for 14 days and do a second treatment of the Permethrin SFR. These products can be used in both the yard and in your home. We would recommend treating both so that fleas are not being brought from outdoors, making the infestation worse. These treatments may need to be done more than twice.

    Q
    What setting do you recommend for applying this product to my lawn?
    A
    The mixing ratio for Permethrin SFR 36.8% on lawns is anywhere between 0.4 oz up to 0.8 oz per 1000 square feet or per gallon of water. A dial setting at half of an ounce per gallon on the hose end sprayer would be perfect.

    Q
    Can you use Permethrin SFR to kill wasps?
    A

    You can use Permethrin SFR, but it will NOT kill wasps on contact.  The wasps/bees will die, but not immediately.  It can take a few minutes for them to succumb to the product.  Permethrin will help to deter them from nesting in areas it has been sprayed.  Wasp Freeze is your best choice if you are looking to knock down wasps instantly.

    Q
    Is Permethrin SFR 36.8% safe to spray on plants in a garden?
    A
    The only edible vegetation that Permethrin SFR can be used on would be the fruit and nut trees listed on the product label. A more appropriate product for your needs would be Hi-Yield Indoor/Outdoor 10% Permethrin Insecticide. This particular product is formulated and labeled for use on many different types of edible vegetation including most veggies commonly grown in a home garden.

    Q
    Will Permethrin SFR 36.8% kill Stink Bugs?
    I live in Virginia where Stink Bugs have become an epidemic. The problem is increased when you kill them, as that is when they emit the most odor, which attracts more Stink Bugs.
    A
    Permethrin SFR will kill stink bugs but there are other products such as Cyper WP which lasts a bit longer and stays on the surface of porous areas making it more available to this pest. Unfortunately if you are dealing with them in your house right now you will only see limited results. Stink bugs move into structures to overwinter. They usually squeeze into wall voids, false ceilings, attics and other areas that are inaccessible to people and insecticides. As the heat kicks on in the house, the stink bugs warm up and start becoming active and emerge from hiding, driving homeowners nuts. Because most folks usually have no idea where the bugs are harboring you can only treat around baseboards, door frames and window frames and hope the insects will emerge where you have sprayed. After they contact the treated areas it can take several hours for them to die. It is still worth spraying now to get rid of some of the bugs, but you will keep seeing them until late spring when they will emerge en masse and leave your home. They do not eat, mate or lay eggs while indoors so need to worry about any damage or future baby stink bugs. This year you can be proactive by stopping these pests before they move in for the winter. You should spray Cyper WP outdoors around your door frames, window frames, vents, eaves, around the bottom of your foundation, and any other crack or crevice where an insect could gain entry once a month August-November. Most folks see a 80-90% reduction in stink bugs the first year and even better results in the following years as the stinkbug pheromone fades away.

  • Asked by Larry from Chechire,ct.
    05/02/2015
    Q
    What is the best mix using Permethrin SFR for tick control in lawn/garden area in oz/gal?
    A
    You should use the higher usage rate of Permethrin SFR for heavy infestations, faster knockdowns and longer lasting residuals and lower usage rates for maintenance sprays. You will need to use higher volumes of water to get the product over thick, dense vegetation. If you are treating your lawn for ticks, we recommend you use the higher specified usage rate of 0.8 fl oz for 1,000 sq ft using whatever volume of water is needed. If you are treating up close to your home you are permitted to use the .5% emulsion (1 2/3 fl. oz. per gallon of water) per 1,000 sq ft as a perimeter treatment. You can also help by creating a "tick safe zone" in your yard. You should have an area that is at least 9 ft wide between your yard and any wooded area. Trim back trees to allow as much sunlight as possible into your yard. Keep grass as short. Remove as much leaf litter as possible. A clearly defined, well manicured border between your yard and any wooded areas or weedy lots will reduce the chance of ticks infesting your yard.
