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.
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.
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. Permethrin SFR is not labeled for scale eradication. We do carry other products that would be great for treating the Prunicola scale and Azalea scale. Please provide details on the treatment area for a product recommendation.
No, Permethrin SFR 36.8% cannot be applied to cats.
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.
The SDS for Permethrin SFR 36.8% states that the product has a "faint, mild petroleum odor."
You can use water and triple rinse sprayers, wands and nozzles after the use of Permethrin SFR.

Please take a moment to look over our How to Get Rid of Roaches article for more detailed information on the best way to implement a successful roach treatment and prevention program.
No, Permethrin SFR 36.8% is not labeled for use on cats under any circumstance.
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.
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.
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.
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.
