We recommend that you clean the surface first and allow to completely dry prior to applying Permethrin SFR 36.8%, otherwise you will eliminate the residual that the product provides.
Permethrin SFR can be used in a mist blower when used as directed on the product label, but it is not labeled for mosquito control. We recommend folks use a product such as Talstar P for a long lasting residual for mosquito control. Talstar cannot be used in a fogger but it can be used in mist blower, hand pump sprayer or a hose end sprayer for mosquito control. Talstar P would need to be applied once a month for mosquito control.
Permethrin SFR 36.8% can be applied to indoor cracks and crevices when the children and pets are not present. They can return once the treated areas are completely dry.
Permethrin SFR needs to be down for at least 6 hours prior to rain for it to be rainfast.
Only the applicator should be present during the application of Permethrin SFR. Everyone (including the applicator) can return within a couple of hours after the surfaces have completely dried and the area has been properly ventilated.
You can use PErmethrin SFR in a hose end sprayer as long as it can be calibrated to the required usage rate, though for fleas outside the rate is not set per gallon of water. According to the Permethrin SFR product label: For fleas, ant and ticks in lawns - Mix 0.4 – 0.8 fl. oz. (2.4 - 4.8 tsp) 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 surfactantsor wetting agents may enhance penetration
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.
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. We also recommend adding an insect growth regulator such as Archer IGR to Permethrin to stop the ticks from being able to develop while you are trying to eliminate the infestation. Do not make spot applications. Treat the entire area where exposure to ticks may occur. Use more water (not more product) when treating areas with dense ground cover or heavy leaf litter. 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.
Yes, you can use Permethrin SFR to control ants in the lawn. You will mix 0.4 to 0.8 fluid ounce 4 to 25 gallons of water per 1,000 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.
Yes, Permethrin SFR 36.8% can be used in a mist blower for fleas and ticks.
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.
Permethrin SFR 36.8% is applieid at 0.4-0.8 fl oz to 4-25 gallons of water per 1,000 sq ft for applications to lawns for ticks.
Permethrin SFR 36.8% can be used inside and outside for flea control. If treating outside, you will want to apply on a dry day and have 24 hours prior to a rainfall. We suggest treating with an insect growth regulator (IGR). Treatments should be performed once every two weeks. Please take a few moments to review our treatment article on How to Get Rid of Fleas for a successful eradication program.
Permethrin SFR 36.8% can be applied to turf, trees and ornamentals for effective insect control. It can be sprayed into or onto damage caused by boring insects,but it is not labeled for injecting or soil drenching as an application for live trees. Always refer to the product label for the correct mix ratios and application rates.
