    Q
    What product would be safe to use in a barn that houses horses and cats?
    We have a 3 stall barn that we use to house 2 horses and 2 barn cats. The barn has a dirt floor and is a wooden structure. We are worried about what type of pest control we should use. Can you recommend some? We have treated carpenter bees and wasps using typical products since they are above the ground level of the animals. We also have Lesser Mealworm Beetle/Yellow Mealworm in some part of the barn.
    A
    We would recommend Permethrin SFR 36.8% for treatment around livestock and barns.  Permethrin SFR 36.8%, when used as directed on the product label, is safe to use directly on dogs and other animals (Do NOT apply to cats), barns and livestock areas. It is a concentrate you mix with water and apply using a hand pump sprayer.  Please reference the product label for further instructions and complete information.

    Q
    How effective is this for bed bugs?
    A
    Permethrin SFR is labeled for bedbugs but you will need to use other products in conjunction with the Permethrin SFR to eliminate a bedbug infestation. We offer bedbug kits that contain all of the different products you need to eliminate bedbugs and retreatments should be done every 7-10 days until you do not receive a bite for 30 days.  We also highly recommend using mattress and boxspring encasements to help eliminate bedbug infestations. These bedbug proof covers will trap existing bedbugs and eliminate hiding places and make inspections easier.Please take a few moments to read our BEDBUG GUIDE to learn more about eliminating bedbugs.

  • Asked by Kimberly from Jacksonville, Fl
    01/08/2012
    Q
    Is Permethrin SFR 36.8% the product you would recommend for treating the lawn for an active tick problem?
    SInce it has a residual effect it should help prevent future tick infestations too? Or is there another product you would recommend? Thanks
    A
    Permethrin SFR 36.8% is labeled for ticks in yards and it will offer some residual effects as well. The Permethrin SFR 36.8% product label recommends that you mix the product with a surfactant to help the product better stick to the foliage that you are spraying.  Ticks may be reintroduced from surrounding areas on host animals. Retreatment may be necessary to achieve and/or maintain control during periods of high pest pressure. All of your pets should be treated with a product that is specifically labeled for use on pets for tick control.

    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.

    Q
    Will Permethin SFR kill paper wasps on contact like the long distant sprays you can purchase?
    A
    Permethrin SFR will NOT kill wasps/bees on contact.  The wasps/bees will die, but not immediately.  It can take a few minutes for them to succumb to the product.  Wasp Freeze is your best choice if you are looking to knock down wasps/bees instantly.

    Q
    How do I apply Permethrin as a barrier against termite and carpenter ant infestations in the home?
    I would like to protect my home against further infestation from carpenter ants and termites. What are the best places to apply the product? Also, how do I apply the product to the interior of the basement and attic to control spiders and silverfish?
    A
    Permethrin SFR is not labeled for indoor use. You could use our Carpenter Ant kit that contains Dominion 2L that will treat both termites and carpenter ants, as well as a protein based bait and sweet based bait that can be used indoors where you have seen the ant activity. You can use a product like Tempo SC Ultra indoors to control the spiders, silverfish and more. Please make sure to review the product labels before application.

  • Asked by Anonymous from Ny Ny
    07/22/2013
    Q
    Even though it doesn't say it kills bedbugs why is it that most insecticides have Permethin as the ingredient?
    A
    None of the insecticide concentrates that we recommend for bed bug control contain permethin as the ingredient or inert ingredients. We are unsure of where you have received this information but if you look at our Bed Bug Concentrates you can see the ingredients in each listed on every product page. You may see in our Bedlam Aerosol the ingredient permethrin as this formulation of the product mixed with its inert ingredients will work on bed bugs. Permethrin SFR has a completely different base and is formulated to be used on surfaces that will not contact skin for prolonged periods of time. While the active ingredient is the same the carrier is different and using Permethrin SFR on bedding like the Bedlam for bed bug control could lead to illness and skin irritations. You may be seeing that the ingredients in the bed bug products are Pyrethroids, which is a man made version of Pyrethrin which is the all natural ingredient derived from the crysanthymum plant. Please let us know if you have any questions.

  • Asked by Lucinda from Gonzales, La
    10/22/2013
    Q
    Should I use Permethrin SFR or Hy-Yield 38 Plus for red ants?
    I am having a bad problem with red ants coming inside of my home from under the doors. I am currently using the Talstar granules which kills the ants, but I keep finding dead ants that have come inside.
    A
    The Permethrin SFR 36.8% and the Hi-Yield 38% Plus both have the same active ingredient and will give comparable results so either would be a good choice as a barrier spray around the home and door and window frames.
