    Q
    Will Permethrin SFR 36.8% kill carpenter ants?
    A

    Permethrin SFR 36.8% will kill carpenter ants that contact the treated area. Keep it mind, it will not kill off the colony. You will need something that is transferred back to the colony. Please check out our Carpenter Ant Guide which lists our top recommendations for carpenter ant control.

    Q
    Can permethrin SFR 36.8%,diluted to 0.5% be used to treat cloths for tick control?
    A
    Permethrin SFR 36.8% cannot be used on clothing of any type. We do carry Tick Block which was specifically manufactured for use on clothing for tick control. While Tick Block and Permethrin SFR 36.8% share the same active ingredient the base ingredients are very different and the products are not interchangeable.

  • Asked by Mira from Alice, Tx
    12/20/2015
    Q
    Does Permethrin SFR work on bed bugs, and if so how long does it last after you have sprayed?
    A

    We would not recommend Permethrin SFR 36.8% for a bed bug treatment because they can easily grow resistance. We would definitely recommend something more like Temprid SC because it has two active ingredients that actually work against bed bugs that may have resitance to other products. We would recommend that you check our guide on How to get rid of bed bugs for more detailed information.

  • Asked by Paul from Belleair, Florida
    05/03/2016
    Q
    I did wash my clothes in Permethrin SFR 36.8%, how many washes does it take to remove the chemical?
    I used this process before, it worked in destroying fleas in my clothes a few years ago. can't I just wash the clothes for about 10 to 20 batches and remove the permethrin SFR?
    A

    Because Permethrin SFR is not labeled for use on clothing or other items that would contact skin, we are not able to give an exact recommendation as to how many washings would deem the fabrics safe for wear, if at all. A small amount of product could be washed, however, something like full strength product would persist longer, and we would not recommend wearing clothing that had significant chemical residue on it.

    A

    Permethrin SFR 36.8% is not labeled to be used in any type of fogger.  For thermal fogging, you can use the CSI 30-30 Mosquito, Fly & Gnat Control, which has the same active ingredient.

  • Asked by Susan from Ca
    06/23/2015
    Q
    Can you use Permethrin on trees for red turpintine beetles and western pine beetles?
    A
    Healthy trees can be protected before the beetles attack by topically spraying them with a product called Permethrin SFR. The tree should be sprayed from the ground to 15 ft up the trunk to prevent future infestations.  Unfortunately, there is no easy solution when it comes to pine beetles. Infected trees should be cut down (before the newly hatched beetles fly out of the trees in the spring/summer) and the wood burned or chipped, while other still healthy trees should be sprayed annually to protect them. Because of the natural boring behavior of the beetle they are protected from topically applied insecticides and systemic insecticides (those injected into the tree or applied as a root drench) have proven ineffective for pine beetle infestations.

  • Asked by Joseph from Honolulu, Hawaii
    08/18/2018
    Q
    What is the mixing ratio to use Permethrin SFR 36.8% indoors for control of fleas and ticks ?
    I would just be spraying the baseboards along the edge of all the rooms in my home.
    A

    Permethrin SFR 36.8% is mixed at the rate of 1 2/3 fl. oz. for each gallon of water. Prior to treatment, carpets and furniture should be vacuumed thoroughly and vacuum cleaner bag discarded in an outdoor trash container. Evenly apply a direct spray as a spot treatment to infested areas such as crawlspaces, rugs, carpets, pet beds and other pet resting areas. Do not wet or soak. For crawlspace applications, the applicator must wear a respirator recommended by NIOSH for filtering spray mists and organic vapors. When treating upholstered furniture take care to treat between and under cushions. Pay particular attention to areas which are frequented by pets. Old pet bedding should be replaced with clean, fresh bedding after treatment. To control the source of flea infestations, pets inhabiting the treated premises should be treated with a flea control product registered for application to animals.

  • Asked by Ted from Eunice, La
    11/08/2016
    Q
    Why wouldn't Permethrin SFR 36 be a good option for mosquito control, and can it be used in a hand held fogger?
    A

    Permethrin SFR 36.8% is not labeled to be used for mosquitos in yards and cannot be used in a fogger.  Fogging is really only going to kill those that are out in the area at the time of application and may make the area slightly repellent for about a day or so.  Talstar P is our most popular product for mosquito control and would be a better option.  It is a liquid concentrate that you mix with water and apply using any hand pump sprayer or backpack sprayer.  The key is to apply it to all shrubs, trees, and other foliage around the house or patio where you are trying to provide relief.  It should be directed not only on top of the leaves and plants, but on the underside of the leaves as well, which is where the mosquitoes like to hang out.  It should be applied every 30 days for optimum control.

  • Asked by Nick from Kingman, Az
    03/14/2019
    Q
    Will Permethrin SFR 36.8% kill scorpions, spiders, etc out of my house & yard?
    I just moved out to the far outskirts of the Kingman, AZ area. We keep our house and yard immaculate and do not want any "surprise" guests.
    A

    Permethrin SFR 36.8% will kill scorpions that come in contact with it. However, a more effective product would be Onslaught Fastcap which is specifically designed for scorpions and other insects that are harder to kill. Onslaught FastCap is a unique insecticide that has an encapsulated pyrethroid plus prallethrin for quick knockdown. The encapsulation really helps products to last longer in the heat and sunlight in desert environments better than the Permethrin SFR would.

  • Asked by Cindy from Montgomery, Alabama
    08/11/2018
    Q
    How much Permethrin SFR 36.8% do I need to get rid of scabies in my house?
    A

    Permethrin SFR 36.8% is not labeled for scabies so we cannot recommend it be used. Scabies mites live on/in the skin and we do not carry anything to treat humans. Most folks need to visit their doctor to receive the medication needed to get rid of scabies. You may spray your furniture with a product such as Steri-Fab to kill anything on furniture, though treating the home is usually not necessary.
