    Q
    How do you use Permethrin SFR for hive beetles with honey bees?
    A

    Permethrin SFR 36.8% is very toxic to bees and will harm them if they come in contact with a treated area. We would recommend contacting your local cooperative extension office to find out what is used by individuals in surrounding areas without killing the bees.

    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.

  • 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.

    Q
    What is the best pest control for New Mexico, Edgewood area in the mountains?
    I'm moving to an area that I don't know anything about, it's mountains and rural. Lots of native animals, including deer so I'm worried about my dog and cats getting ticks as well as us for that matter. What is the best spray for my yard that I can do once a month or every coupon months? There are also a lot of trees so tree termites or beetles could be a problem.
    A

    Permethrin SFR 36.8% would be good to use for ticks and other insects in the yard as well as on healthy trees to help protect from beetle infestations.  We have a great video that shows where to spray for perimeter and interior spraying. Please click here to see the video as well as our Tick Prevention guide here.

    As for termites, the best thing is to protect your home.  We have a step by step guide that will walk you through how to do your own termite trenching treatment to help do this. You can see the guide by clicking on the link here.

  • Asked by Alyssa from Keokuk
    09/26/2019
    Q
    How long should I wait between applications of Permethrin SFR inside before fleas die, and how often can it be used?
    Treated house, yard, and dogs in same day yet still see fleas that night on dogs and furniture. Not sure if I did something wrong, managed to miss a few, or what.
    A

    For flea control, we recommend retreatment with insecticides such as Permethrin SFR every 14 days until you have no more signs of fleas. Most successful flea treatment programs require at least 2-3 treatments at 14-day intervals using both an insecticide for the adult fleas and an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) to prevent immature stages of fleas from developing into breeding adults. You will not be able to make just one insecticide application for fleas and never see them again, especially if you did not use an IGR in your treatment. Fleas multiply very quickly, and they have an immature stage that is protected from insecticide, so new fleas will continue to emerge after you have treated. Be sure, also, that you are vacuuming every day or every other day to help pick up adult fleas, flea dirt, and eggs, and also to stimulate those immature fleas so the adults will emerge and be exposed to the insecticide you have put down. We have more tips and details in our Flea Treatment Guide here.

  • 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.

  • Asked by Leah from Orlando, Fl
    02/05/2017
    Q
    Is Permethrin SFR safe for couches?
    I have a flea problem and want to treat my couches. I bought both Ppermethrin SFRr and Bifen XTS for the yard which one is safer for use on furniture
    A

    Neither Permethrin SFR nor Bifen XTS can be applied to furniture.  Bifen XTS is also not able to be applied to carpets inside so would not be recommended for inside flea control.  Nyguard Plus would be a better option as it can be applied to upholstered furniture and other areas, it also is an odor neutralizer and contains an IGR (insect growth regulator) which is highly recommended when treating for fleas.  Please refer to our guide here for the best advice in effectively treating fleas both inside and out.
