Phantom Aerosol Spray has changed to Phantom II. Phantom II is still the same product - it still contains the same active ingredient, Chlorfenapyr. It now kills more insects such as foraging Fire Ants, Harvester Ants, Bees (Honey), and Carpenter Bees. Now containing a new formulation, this newly improved aerosol spray has less odor.
Old Manufacturer's Product Number: 59011639
Phantom Pressurized Aerosol Spray delivers the power and effectiveness of Phantom Insecticide in a convenient and easy-to-use aerosol can. Phantom aerosol provides broad-spectrum control over numerous indoor pests including bed bugs, ants and cockroaches. Phantom dries clear with no visible residue, and delivers long-residual non-repellent control. In other words, Phantom aerosol will stay around and kill pests long after you spray it. Plus, the product has a transfer effect allowing insects to pick up the product and spread it to one another through touch and food-sharing, which kills even the pests you don't see. Effective on pyrethroid-resistant strains of bed bugs and cockroaches. Only for use in cracks and crevices where bed bugs or insects hide.

How Phantom Aerosol Works
Phantom Aerosol is a ready-to-use residual insecticide with the active ingredient Chlorfenapyr. Chlorfenapyr belongs to a relatively new class of insecticides called pyrroles which are produced from microbes. Pyrroles do not metabolize into active insecticides until after they enter the host target pest. Chlorfenapyr disrupts the production of ATP in the part of the cell that turns food into energy, causing cellular death and ultimate mortality. Because this process is slower than other modes of action, Phantom can have a transfer effect similar to that of baits on social insects like ants, cockroaches, and termites. Once applied, Phantom Aerosol has a residual of at least 30 days.
Phantom Aerosol Target Pests
Ants, cockroaches, beetles, bed bugs, spiders, wasps
PESTS CONTROLLED WITH PHANTOM AEROSOL: Ants (Acrobat, Argentine, Odorous House, Pavement, Pharaoh, Pyramid); Beetles (Asian Lady, Confused Flour, Darkling Larva (Yellow mealworm), Saw-toothed Grain); Bark Scorpions; Bed Bugs, Boxelder Bugs, Centipedes; Cockroaches (American, Asian, Brown-Banded, German, Oriental, Smokey Brown); Earwigs; House Crickets; House Flies; Paper Wasps; Pillbugs; Spiders (Black Widow, Cellar); Silverfish; Stored Product Pests; Termites
Target Uses of Phantom Aerosol
Phantom Aerosol has the same power and effectiveness as Phantom Insecticide Concentrate in a convenient ready-to-use can. Phantom has a long residual and can be used in many places. Because of its transfer effect, Phantom is excellent for ants, cockroaches, and other social insects. It can also be used in conjunction with baiting. Phantom Aerosol is excellent for use in smaller areas such as apartments where residual insecticides may be desired, but the large quantities that concentrates yield are not needed. Because of its unique active ingredient, Phantom is effective on pyrethroid-resistant strains of bed bugs and cockroaches.
Phantom Aerosol is not a knockdown agent and should not be used for knockdown treatment of stinging insects.
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Chlorfenapyr 0.5%

Pros Use It
By Shirley in Hoboken, NJ on 10/15/2010
We had confirmed bed bugs at work and I think I brought them home. I asked what the exterminators had used and they said Suspend and Mother Earth. I then called a local exterminator and they quoted me $800 to spray Phantom and dust with DE. I can't afford a pro so I purchased Phantom, Suspend and Mother Earth, put on a mask and went to battle myself. It's been only 3 weeks but I think I won. I slashed the bottom of my new expensive sofa to really get into the grooves and sprayed everywhere. I also encased my mattress and box spring. It's reassuring that if the bugs come back I can retreat immediately and not have to spend $800 each time.

Works Great, but Be Careful!
By Chris in Falls Church, VA on 08/10/2010
This product has a ruthless odor, stronger than most aerosols such as CB-80 or P.I. and if used indoors can smell bad and choke everyone out of the room. Be sure to use your PPE and/or open windows while using it. Also, be sure not to spray it in your eyes...I accidentally sprayed it right into my eye and it burned and had a cold, tingling feeling for hours.

Same Stuff the Pros Use
By Brad in Rex, GA on 10/02/2010
I had my upstairs treated for BedBugs last month by a professional pest control company. I checked my receipt and searched the chemicals they used. That is when I found DoMyOwnPestControl.com. On my receipt from the Pest Control Company it lists Phantom Aerosol Spray was used along with other chemicals. So I bought a can and also the BedBug Kit#2 which also contains products the pros use. I also bought mattress and box spring encasements. They are priceless, since I can sleep knowing that those evil bugs are no longer camping out waiting to suck my blood. DoMyOwnPestControl.com was easy to order from and my order was received in three days. I am very pleased with how they do business. I would recommend DoMyOwnPestControl.com to anyone suffering from BedBug infestation.

Kiss your indoor ant problems goodbye
By Philip in Atlanta, GA on 06/05/2009
For weeks I've been dealing with annoying little black ants (argentine or sugar ants I think) coming in and around the back door of my house and eating all of the Cheerios our little baby keeps dropping on the kitchen floor. We tried everything to stop the ants, but whatever we used or sprayed on them would just keep them away for a day or so, and then they would just pop out of the wall somewhere else. Then I tried this Phantom spray. Wow, does this stuff work! I sprayed just a line of Phantom along the bottom of the back door and where the ants were coming in, and within minutes there were dead ants everywhere I sprayed. Not only that, but the ants never came back. I highly recommend!

Bought two cans to fight bed bugs and roaches. My roommate brought a mattress infested with bed bugs into our new house, and we sprayed his room and all the furniture and many parts of the house with a different bug spray. This was 3 months ago. I have never had a problem with bed bugs until about 4 weeks ago. I got four bites on my stomach and back. I immediately researched what spray would be the best and decided to get Phantom. I sprayed my mattress all over (against the directions, but it doesn't stain so I figured whatever) and along the seams, and sprayed the same way on the box spring, and all over my room along the perimeter and all over the door seams. Been almost two weeks, no bed bug bites!!!! Only used a 1/4 of one can, so i'm prepared just in case, though I doubt they will be back. I also sprayed down stairs in the kitchen and the little roaches we had been seeing stopped appearing. PHANTOM IS HIGH QUALITY PEST CONTROL, IT KILLS ALL THE BUGS YOU DON"T WANT IN YOUR HOUSE AND IS HIGHLY EFFECTIVE AGAINST BED BUGS!!!!!
By Max in Fort worth Texas on 01/12/2018
When I read it may take a week to ten days to see results, I had my doubts and applied Diatomaceous Earth in the corners as a back up. But low and behold, five days later, I found one dead one on the floor. And day seven, I found two medium ones. It did wonders and I probably have some in the walls still, so I will apply in two weeks and then once a month.
Stopped the Ants

Thanks to the recommendation by customer service staff (Amber) the ants are gone. Was able to use the straw to get into the cracks in wall, and countertops. Perfect!

Not as effective as others
By Jack in whitehall on 09/16/2017
I've been treating bed bugs for a number of years in rental properties. in aerosol I've used Bedlam and Fireback. Not only are they cheaper than phantom II but spraying directly on crawling bugs while watching they kill faster with much less fumes. I'll not but buy phantom again, but stick with the previous aerosols.

If I were able to give it zero stars, I would. Sprayed the product directly on individual carpenter ants to test effectiveness and observed their behavior. Ants kept crawling happily on my window sill without losing a beat. Bad BASF product and a waste of good money for me.
By Alvin in LaPlace, Louisiana on 08/03/2017
Have been using this for the past few years to primarily control wasp. It prevents them from building nest around the soffits. Really works well.

I was very disappointed in the spray because it had a very strong odor that smelled like cat urine. I am an asthmatic and will not be able to use it for that reason.
Killed Carpenter Ants in Garage Walls
By Jason in Traverse city, Michigan on 07/24/2017
No evidence of sawdust since I sprayed throughout the area most affected by the ants tunneling through the inner board of our 60 year old garage. Phantom II in spray can version was an easy version to use while climbing on the ladder in the garage where I had to also apply it. Good product, Thanks!
A quick effective solution, proven.
By Matt in TX on 07/15/2017
Aerosols are not the most economical method for doing pest control. However, if you have a problem that needs a fast and lasting result, This is your can. Since most insects like to live in corners, you can stretch your can of Phantom a bit more by spraying in all your corners. From walls to window sills, dries fast, low odor and any critter crossing over will die. You will begin to find dead bugs in random places where you haven't sprayed. Be careful; The pressure is powerful and the spray button leaks/drips. Use a latex or chem glove if you're worried about physical exposure to your hands/skin. This is a recommended product and is well worth the investment. Use sparingly because it will do effectively as the manufacturer states.

QCan you spray Phantom on your bed, babys furniture? is it safe? Is this product known to cause cancer?
A man came in today and sprayed for bedbugs with phantom. He sprayed the baseboards and the permiter. my living room furniture, my babys bed, the dog bed and my mattress and boxspring? is it still safe to sleep on? and what should i do if not? Is this stuff toxic? He had my one year old, my dog and myself stay in the house while he was spraying.
AWe cannot comment on any work done by a pest control company for liability reasons. We can tell you that the areas you mentioned that were sprayed with the Phantom are listed as areas that can safely be treated on the Phantom Aerosol product label. You do need to let the treated areas dry before you use them and you do need to cover the mattress with a sheet before you use it again. Phantom is safely used in homes everyday to help eliminate bedbug infestations.
QHas there been any report of bed bugs becoming resistant to Phantom?
APhantom Aerosol Spray is currently one of the most promising products for bed bug control available right now. It has shown very good results against bed bug colonies that are resistant to other products and to date has not shown any resistance to the Phantom itself.
QCan I use Phantom Insecticide Spray in combination with Diatomaceous Earth?
I want to get the Phantom for the bedbug problem in my apartment. It is recommended that we use the Phantom only in cracks and crevices. Can I use it in combination with MotherEarth Dust? I like the Phantom spray for cracks and crevices and DE for the carpets.
A You can use Phantom Aerosol spray in the same area as other products like MotherEarth D. Phantom Aerosol Spray is ideal for cracks and crevices and has been proven to be very effective against bed bugs.

QIs Phantom Aerosol Spray harmful to pets....like cats?
APhantom Aerosol Spray should be applied when the pets are not in the area. They can re-enter once the treated surfaces are completely dry.
Qwhat is the difference between bed bug treatment kit with phantom spray and bedlam spray?
I bought the bed bug treatment with the phantom spray but I found that your q and A seems to recommend the bedlam spray. What are the factors I should pay attention to when using the phantom spray. What are the advantages of using one spray over the other.
AThere are many factors that we considering when answering a customer submitted question. Phantom is one of the top products on the market for bedbug infestations but for some customers it is too costly. Phantom is a non-repellent insecticide which means that bedbugs would not be able to detect that it is there and they will readily walk through treated areas. In the Q&A that you are referencing the other customer could have been using other synthetic pyrethroids in the same are which would have interfered with the non-repellent qualities of Phantom or there could have been a budget concern. Also the customer who submitted the Q&A you are referring to may have lived in a state where Phantom is restricted.

QIf I use PT Phantom II in my kitchen pantry for pantry moth, is the odor dangerous?
A It is safe to use Phantom Aerosol as a crack and crevice spray indoors in areas such as a pantry. Be sure that you do not spray in a way that contaminates food or utensils, and the you do not contact the treated area until it is dry. If there is a lingering odor, then we suggest ventilating the area thoroughly until the odor has dissipated before re-entering the area. For complete safety details, you can view the SDS here.

QCan I use the Phantom II Aerosol and the Phantom Concentrate for carpenter ants indoors?
Hello, I have a problem with an invasion of carpenter ants in my house. I found on your site an interesting non repellent product of either Phantom II Aerosol Insecticide or Phantom Termicide / Insecticide. On your site you recommend in the house only use in indoors (Crack & Crevice Only), so does this mean I cannot use along baseboard where ants establish trails? In other words not for use as a surface application inside living spaces?
A You can certainly use Phantom in the aerosol or the concentrate form indoors for carpenter ants. Both the Phantom Aerosol and the concentrate are labeled to be used directly on baseboards as well as in cracks and crevices around the home where they would be trailing and around window and doorframes and around potention entry points.† Surface applications would be considered open areas of floors/carpets in a broadcast fashion, and you cannot use the Phantom in either form in that manner.†

QDoes Phantom II Aerosol come with a straw to spray into crevices?
Last time I ordered it there wasn't a straw included so wanted to check and see. Thanks.
A Yes, you should receive a crack and crevice straw with Phantom II Aerosol. The manufacturer does not always provide enough straws for every can, but we do our best to accomodate this need. Please let us know if you are ever missing an accessory like this so that we can get one out to you as soon as possible!

QDoes Phantom II Aerosol Spray work for carpenter ants?
The label does not list carpenter ants but in the description it says carpenter ants? Which is correct?
A Phantom II Aerosol Spray†does not list all species of ants which†it controls on the product label but will work for carpenter ants. †It will work like a bait in that it is taken back to the colony and spread from those ants that contact a treated surface.

QWhat's the difference between Phantom Ready Spray and Temprid Ready Spray?
Would you recommend one over the other or do they both essentially do the same thing? I'm having a problem with small black ants in the kitchen. I've been using Advion ant bait gel for 2 weeks but still seeing activity.
A Temprid Ready Spray†uses 2 different active ingredients. One that kills by transfer like Phantom and one that provides a quick kill. Temprid does have a smaller re-treatment window; Phantom may be applied no more than once every 4 weeks.†While Phantom Aerosol is an excellent product for ants, using bait such as Advion Ant Bait is also recommended since you get the best transfer effect from ant baits. We recommend†continuing†to use†Advion Ant Bait Gel†until you do not see any more signs of ant activity.
