    Q
    How do I use Permethrin SFR 36.8% for mole crickets?
    Bad mole cricket in yard killing grass
    A

    When using Permethrin SFR 36.8% for mole crickets the product label states you use 0.4 – 0.8 fl. oz. of Permethrin SFR in 4 to 25 gallons of water per 1000 square feet. Use the higher rate for fast knockdown and increased residual control. If you’re using the higher rate of 0.8 oz per 1000 sq ft, that would require 35.2 ounces for an acre. Dense or excessive (greater than 3 inches) lawn height and arid conditions may require higher volume application rates. Repeat application if necessary. Application in combination with compatible surfactants or wetting agents may enhance penetration.

    Q
    What Is The Expected Wait Time Before Permethrin Kills Fleas?
    I have applied Permethrin SFR as a broadcast spray inside my home, also mixed with Archer IGR, both per their respective manufacturer's instructions. The solution was sprayed due to a flea infestation that occurred while I was away for business (it is also a 100+ yr old farm house so very susceptible to bugs etc). Are the affects to be expected immediately or after a delay? I have had great success with previous purchases from you guys and have faith this will be the same, just not sure how long I have to wait. Many thanks for your help.
    A
    Depending on many factors such as insect type, etc  Permethrin SFR 36.8% can take minutes to hours to kill insects. Permethrin SFR is not labeled to be applied as a broadcast inside. You would want to use Archer mixed with a product like Onslaught labeled for broadcast. Please keep in mind that it can take at least 2 treatments to eradicate fleas. Be sure to keep up with the vacuuming too.

    Q
    What is the dilution rate for Permethrin SFR 36.8% to treat fire ant mounds?
    I've read the directions but they are not clear on % or amount to mix/gallon of water for the mounds and 4 foot diameter around the mounds.
    A

    There are 3 mix rates for applying  Permethrin SFR 36.8% with one gallon of water when treating fire ant mounds. Typically you would use the low or mid rate for treating fire ant mounts unless the mounds are greater than 12 inches in diameter per the product label. You can find the mix rate Chart on page 14 of the product label:  

    Mix Rates per one gallon of water: Low:0.5% (1.6 fl oz), Mid:1.0% (3.3 fl oz), High: 2% (6.6 fl oz). If using 2 gallons of water to treat the mounds, you will double the mix rate.

    Q
    Should I use Permethrin SFR to treat ticks inside and out of the house?
    I am currently using Permethrin SFR but I am still seeing ticks. Is there anything else that you would recommend that I can use for indoor and outdoor tick control?
    A

    Permethrin SFR would be a great choice for indoor and outdoor tick control. We would also recommend adding an insect growth regulator such as Archer IGR in addition to the Permethrin to stop the ticks from being able to reproduce while you are trying to eliminate the infestation. Please see our Tick Treatment Guide for more information about this pest.

    07/03/2016
    Q
    Will a surfactant increase the effectiveness of Permethrin SFR 36.8%?
    I recently bought Permethrin SFR for various ants and it is working. Since the most recent rain we have had fire ants pop up everywhere and so I was wondering if a surfactant would make SFR even more effective. I am pleased so far with the results, just want even more fire power if possible. Also sometimes it rains soon after I spray so maybe it would stick better with a surfactant.
    A

    Yes, a surfactant can be used with Permethrin SFR 36.8% to help it stick better and increase effectiveness.  Hi-Yield Spreader Sticker would be a good choice.  You can find our other surfactants here as well.

    Q
    We bought Permethrin SFR 36.8% treat for fleas in our yard, do we water the grass immediately after the application?
    A

    No, you do not need to water the lawn after applying Permethrin SFR 36.8%  since you are already using 4 to 25 gallons of water every 1,000 sq ft. The water is acting as the carrier – Per the prodcut label Mix 0.4 – 0.8 fl. oz. of Permethrin SFR in 4 to 25 gallons of water per 1000 square feet.Use the higher rate for fast knockdown and increased residual control. Dense or excessive (greater than 3 inches) lawn height and arid conditions may require higher volume application rates. Repeat application if necessary. Application in combination with compatible surfactants or wetting agents may enhance penetration

     

    Permethrin SFR needs to be down for at least 6 hours prior to rain for it to be rainfast but preferably up to 24hrs.

    Does Permethrin SFR 36.8% kill chiggers?
    I have a major chigger infestation and it's hard to find a product to get rid of them. Will this work?

  • Asked by Alice from Shoals

    Q
    How much Permethrin 10% is needed for tick control in my yard?
    Is it safe around pets?
    A

    We would recommend using Permethrin SFR 36.8% at the rate of 1 2/3 oz. per gallon water for ticks. It would also be a good idea to incorporate an insect growth regulator (IGR) such as Archer IGR for complete control of ticks. All of these products are pet safe if used as directed.  Pets need to be kept out of the area being treated during application and until everything is completely dry. 

    Please look over our Tick Control Guide for more information on treating and preventing this pest.

  • Asked by Gary from Windsor
    05/01/2017
    Q
    How much Permethrin SFR 36.8% to a gallon of water to treat my Ash tree for borer infestation?
    I want to use a sprayer. The label says 1 to 2 quarts is good for a 100 gal.
    A

    Yes, Per the product label of Permethrin SFR 36.8% you would use 1 to 2 quarts per 100 gallons of water and apply to the lower branches and trunks prior to asult emergence. Adult emergence varies according to pest species, host trees, environmenta conditions and geographical location. Thprough coverage of bark is required for control.

    Permethrin SFR 36.8% would not be a recommended product as a soil drench for Ash Borers as it is not a systemic and will only kill the insects that contact the treated soil.  Dominion 2L is labeled to use on trees to help protect against boring beetles. Treatments should begin in May or June and should be done every year to protect trees from the Emerald Ash Borers. Most people use a 5 gallon bucket or a large watering can to apply Dominion as a soil drench. You will need 0.1 to 0.2 fl. oz. (3 to 6 mL) of Dominion 2L per inch of trunk diameter for trees. It is recommended that you use the higher rate for boring beetles. The amount of water that is used will vary depending on soil conditions and volumes that are easy for applicators to use. The minimum amount of water that should be used is 1 pint per inch of trunk diameter for trees but you may use 1 quart -1 gallon of water per inch of trunk diameter for trees. Denser soils such as clay do not accept water as readily, so the lower volume of water is suggested.  Since sandy soils can accept more water, using the higher volume of water is preferred. After the soil drench has been applied you should water it in with at east 1/2 inch of water. Note: Water simply acts as a carrier and it is important that even distribution of the product is achieved. Thus, more water may be used if the applicator feels runoff will not occur and proper penetration of the root zone is achieved. Insecticides applied to the soil are taken up by the roots and trans-located throughout the tree or shrub. Root/soil drenches offer the advantage of requiring no special equipment to apply (other than a bucket or watering can). However, surface layers of organic matter, such as mulch or leaf litter, can bind the insecticide and reduce uptake. Before applying drenches, it is important to remove or pull back any mulch or dead leaves so the insecticide solution is poured directly on the mineral soil. It is also important to keep the soil around the tree or shrub moist for the next 10-14 days after applications to encourage uptake.
