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.

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!!!!!
Product good for hotels
By Sanjiv in Livingston ca on 07/14/2018
I have been using this for mummy hotel for many years, it does not leave any residue behind, and is effective in killing and controlling roaches when they appear.
By Donna in Kodak, TN on 07/06/2018
Sure solved my problem with ghost or sometimes called sugar ants. Very tiny troublesome things. This cured the situation & I like that one time seems to do the job. I will purchase again when my supply is gone
By Sarah in Ardmore on 05/04/2018
Love this product! We've been dealing with a horrendous ant problem for months, tried nearly all of the DIY bait tricks and standard commercial bait stations... then we discovered this Phantom spray. Easy to apply, and so satisfying to see dead ants! (sounds weird, but anyone dealing with ant issues knows that the only good ant is a dead ant)! I can't recommend this enough. If you've got ant problems and they just won't go away, do yourself a favor and use this!
By Annedrea in Dothan Alabama on 02/16/2018
Shipping was amazing, it got here quickly and was well packaged. I have used this product in the past, I had lived in an infested apartment and when I moved to my current home I wanted to ensure no intruders would be living here rent free. I researched it and have managed to keep bugs out for over 2 years. Ran out of my old spray bottle the end of last summer and started to notice once the weather changed bugs began to make their way into mi casa. Didn't panic tho I had a reciepe for their demise. Needless to say this stuff is amazing, I have the best results with german cockroaches, but aside from a random spider when I do see other insects I know they are on their way out, normally within 24 hours their corpse is found lifeless. I love this stuff and hope that this can lasts me another 2 years :) Thank you "Do my own" for carrying a amazing product and making it accessible to a broke college student. You all are way cheaper then an exterminator.
Works as advertised
By Jeff in Easton, Pa on 01/27/2018
Applied per directions, within a week saw no more ants - they had been present in 3 levels of our home and had prevailed over other off the shelf products. Really satisfied with the performance, seems expensive for a can of spray but totally worth it!
By Tonika in Fairburn, Ga. on 01/19/2018
Great product easy to use have seen any ants since using it.

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.

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.

QBest ant bait to use in an open crawl space?
My house is on piers with an open crawl space. I am having problem with small protein eating ants coming in from where the wall meets the wood floors. I have used your Advance granular, which they do like, but the granules are usually too large to fit through the opening in the floors/wall cracks (I see where they have carried the granules back to the crack but left them). I have cats and there are outdoor animals (raccoons, possums, etc.) that travel under my house, so I want the least toxic method to get rid of these ants. What do you suggest to use indoors as well as outdoors? I have been told that applying petroleum jelly around all the piers and pipes that connect to the ground will keep them out, but I certainly don't want to take on that job!
APhantom Aerosol would be a good choice for you. Phantom should be applied around baseboards, door frames, window frames and places where utilities (cables, pipes and wires) enter through the wall as these are the most likely places for the ants to enter/exit. Phantom is a non-repellent insecticide that has a delayed reaction which allows ants time to get back to the colony and spread the product. In essence, the ants will not be able to tell that the product is in place and they will pick it up on the fine hairs all over their body and inadvertently carry it back to the colony where over a course of a few days it will knock out the entire colony. Phantom works really well because you don't have to worry about whether the ants will all take the bait, they just need to walk over the treated areas.

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.
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.

QHow long should I expect it to take to see results after using Phantom II Aerosol Spray?
After spraying and verifying that ants are coming in contact with it, how long can I expect until I start finding dead ants?
A You may not see dead ants immediately after applying Phantom II Aerosol Spray as it is a slow kill so it has time to be taken back to the colony and spread. How long it will take to completely eliminate ants depends on the size of the colony you are treating and how many colonies you are treating. You can reapply every 4 weeks but as long as they are contacting the treated area they will die and transfer it back. You should start to notice a reduction in activity within a few days though.

QDoes Phantom II Aerosol Spray also kill the bed bugs eggs?
A There are a few insecticides that claim to kill bedbug eggs. Phantom II Aerosol Spray , Sterifab and Bedlam. You should note that those insecticides that claim to kill bedbug eggs must be directly sprayed on the eggs and they are only about 75%-85% effective at actually killing the egg. You will still be required to do retreatments every 7-10 days until you do not receive any more bedbug bites and also see no further evidence that they are active (blood stains, feces or cast skins).

QCan I spray this on areas that already been sprayed with Suspend SC?
We have ants (black ants) that are coming around cracks through our windows/windowsill. We aren't sure if they are coming from outside or from inside our walls. The apt was already treated Suspend SC by our exterminator two weeks ago. Could I use phantom to spray o the areas that he already sprayed on or would they cancel each other out?
A You would need to wait two weeks (10-14 days) before applying Phantom II Aerosol Spray to the areas that you treated with Suspend SC. You do not want to over spray the areas and render the products ineffective.

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.
