    Q
    How often should I treat with Permethrin SFR 36.85% for fleas and german roaches?
    My yard and house have fleas and german roaches. After the first treatment how long until I should treat again?
    A

    Permethring SFR 36.8% gives you up to a 30 day residual outdoors, and up to a 90 day residual indoors. We would also recommend using an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) as well for both these pest applications, such as Nyguard IGR Concentrate. This will help stop the reproductive cycle in both the roaches and fleas.

    Q
    Tick control in 1/2 acre yard. I have kids, dogs and a lot of trees
    Purchased home last year that backs into woods (about 20 acres or so) and we had a lot of ticks in the house, on dog and even a couple on us. What is the best way for me to control that on my own? Foggers, sprayers, etc. and what products do you recommend. We also have a decent amount of mosquitoes.
    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.  Permethrin can also be used as a flea/tick dip on dogs.  We usually recommend using Talstar P for mosquito control and it can be used with an IGR such as Nyguard IGR to help sterilize the adults. The key is to apply to the underside of the leaves where the adults lay during the day. The Nyguard will also help with ticks as well. (Exciter is a pyrethrum which causes a faster kill but it is not an IGR).

    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.

    We also have guides here that can help on treating ticks and mosquitoes.

    Q
    Will Permethrin SFR 36.8% be effective against lacebugs, Azalea scale or Prunicola scale?

    Permethrin SFR 36.8% can be applied to ornamental plants and trees to treat lacebug at a rate of 0.9-1.8 oz per 10,000 sq ft or 4-8 oz per 100 gallons of water.

  • Asked by Robert from Kingfisher, Ok
    07/08/2017
    Q
    Can you mix Permethrin SFR 36.8% and Tempo SC Ultra? Can you mix Permethrin SFR 36.8% with Malathion?
    Heavy flea infestation in aging mobile home on a foreclosure purchase, also spiders and ants in mass quantity.
    A

    It is not necessary or  recommended to mix Permethrin SFR 36.8% to Tempo SC Ultra or Malathion. Malathion is not labeled for flea treatments so this would not be suggested for your treatment. We would suggest mixing Permethrin SFR 36.8% with an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) and a synergist (for a quick knockdown) such as Tekko Pro and Exciter for outdoor applications. We do carry an Indoor Flea Kit that  will work great for interior areas. Please take a few moments to review our article/videos on How to Get Rid of Fleas for a successful eradication program.

  • Asked by Dave from Chandler, Az
    10/12/2017
    Q
    Can I use Permethrin SFR 36.8% for leaf-footed bugs on pomegranate trees?
    If so, how much per gallon of water?
    A

    Permethrin SFR 36.8% should not be applied to pomegranate trees. You can use Monterey Fruit Tree and Vegetable Systemic instead. According to the label for the Fruit Tree and Vegetable Systemic, when treating for leafy bugs on pomegranate trees, you cannot make more than one application per year and do not apply until the trees have flowered or when bees are actively foraging. The mixing ratio is 1.5 fl. oz. per gallon of water. You need to stay within 3 feet of the dripline when pouring around the base of the tree. This needs to be poured evenly around the tree.

  • Asked by Pamela from Edgewood, Nm
    10/12/2017
    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.

    Q
    What is difference between Dragnet FT Emulsifiable Concentrate and Permethrin SFR 36.8?
    I have a product call Dragnet FT Emulsifiable concentrate insecticide 36.8%. And your product is Permethrin SFR 36.8%. Can you tell me if it is the same thing because there is a big difference in price
    A

    We used to carry Dragnet SFR, but FMC (the manufacturer) discontinued it. It was the same thing as Permethrin SFR 36.8. We are not sure if the Dragnet FT (which we didn't carry) is the exact same formulation, but from looking up the label, it appears to be the same percentage of the same active ingredient. Please let us know if there a particular pest you are treating.

  • Asked by Allan from Canada
    04/01/2018
    Q
    When used as a surface spray on exteriors of buildings, how successful is Permethrin SFR 36.8% against mosquitoes?
    A

    Permethrin SFR is only labeled for mosquito control on livestock premises. A better product for mosquito control outdoors is Talstar P and it can be IGR such as Tekko Pro to help sterilize the adults. It 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
    Can I mix Permethrin SFR with Bifen IT for more residual for mosquitoes?
    A

    You should choose one or the other.  Bifen IT and Permethrin SFR should not be mixed together and there is no valid reason to do so.
