I had a flea infestation under my back yard shed. I tried all types of sprays and canned foggers with IGRs, but nothing worked until I got desperate and spent the extra money to try Shockwave. With a simple propane fogger, Shockwave worked great! It created a dense fog that penetrated cracks and crevices under my shed to eradicate the fleas fast and effectively. I now no longer have fleas jumping on my legs when I walk around my shed, thanks to Shockwave.
I use this as my secret weapon on roaches it has more products in it than just pyrethrens it's like you put in Conquor, Archer, and kicker with BP-100.
I use this in our B&G Portable Aerosol System (PAS) simular to an Actisol.
Got tired of pest control contracts. Just bought a home and now live out in the country. Have chickens etc. Anyhow, the birds are next to my shed which obviously attracts flies. Golden Malrin is great for this, but I also go camping and wanted something to whack other things too like skeeters. Anyhow, I decided to blast the shed to get any spiders, flies etc out so I could rebuild the inside of it for a shop. Laid down the fog and closed the doors. Came back next morning and had a big surprise. Whole shop was covered in 10s of thousands of dead red ants. Literally coated. Did not even know there were ants in there as we just bought the place. Nice bonus! Thanks
The description above says specifically for automatic misting systems. I bought it and used it for a year and had to replace 55 nozzles that clogged. Also, when I cleaned out the drum there was an oily residue on the bottom. I called and this information (for misting systems, mix with water) was confirmed. However, it contains petroleum, and the detailed five page label says for outdoor spot treatment only, to dilute with oil, and not to get on plants and anything that might stain. Save yourself grief and expense and use something else.
If there is no residual with Shockwave and it kills on contact how can the IGR work properly?
I was wondering, If there is no residual and it kills on contact how can the IGR work properly? I thought that it has to be carried on the mosquito legs.
Shockwave does in fact leave a residual. Most fogging concentrates do not leave a residual but with the recent changes to Shockwave and the ingredients that were added to the product such as the IGR and the Esfenvalerate a residual will be left. Any insects that are present during the fogging will be killed immediately. Insects that come into contact with treated areas after the fogging will be eliminated at a much slower rate.
Shockwave is labeled to be used in thermal foggers and should work fine in your propane fogger. Please read the Shockwave product label for specific instructions on how to use Shockwave in thermal foggers.
What kind of oil do I use to dilute Shockwave Fogging Concentrate? Where can I purchase it?
You want to use mineral oil to dilute Shockwave. We unfortunately do not carry or have access to the oil you would need for mixing, however the Shockwave can be used undiluted for applications as well. You may need to try local hardware or farm stores to see if they carry the technical grade mineral oil needed if you choose to dilute the product.
What would be the dilution ratio of Shockwave in a thermal fogger for mosquitoes?
We apologize but we are not able to give a rate for the use of Shockwave in a fogger for mosquito control. The Shockwaveproduct label specifies, "Do not use this product for area-wide mosquito adulticiding applications." Shockwave can be used for perimeter outdoor control, but it should not be used for thermal fogging outdoors for mosquites.
