Spectre 2 SC is a non-repellent insecticide formulated with 21.45% of Chlorfenpyr to kill ants, cockroaches, and bed bugs. Because it is odorless and non-repellent, insects can’t sense it to avoid it. Spectre 2 SC has a transfer effect, once an insect comes to contact with it, it spreads and transfers onto other insects through touch or food sharing controlling pests that have not come into contact with it. It provides a long lasting residual control. May be used inside residential structures, commercial areas and institutional areas and more for control of ants, beetles, bed bugs, boxelder bugs, cockroaches and more.
Ants (Acrobat, Argentine, Carpenter, Odorous House, Pavement, Pharaoh, Pyramid), Beetles (Asian Lady, Confused Flour, Darkling Larvae [Yellow Meal-worms], Sawtoothed Grain), Bed Bugs, Box Elder Bugs, Cockroaches (American, Asian, Brown-banded, German, Oriental, Smoky-brown), European Earwigs, House Crickets, House Flies, Paper Wasps, and Silverfish

Ants (acrobat, Argentine, carpenter, odorous house, pavement, pharaoh’s, and pyramid).
Beetles (Asian lady, confused flour, darkling larva [yellow mealworms], saw-toothed grain), bed bugs, box-elder bugs, cockroaches (American, Asian, brown-banded, German, Oriental, smoky brown), European earwigs, house crickets, house flies, paper wasps*, and silverfish (*Spectre 2 SC is not a knockdown agent).
Non-insect pests such as bark scorpions, centipedes, pill-bugs and spiders (black widow and cellar).
Apply Spectre 2 SC as a spot or crack/crevice treatment where pests are found or can infest (i.e, nesting sites, hiding places, runways or breeding areas). Apply to surfaces beneath cabinets, spaces between equipment or expansion joints, surfaces behind sinks, lockers, water pipes, cabinets, or other pest hiding areas. Where possible, apply Spectre 2 SC directly to ant nests or nesting sites, ant trails or ant-infested wood or structural voids. Foam applications of Spectre 2 SC may be made in voids.
Apply a 0.5% dilution of Spectre 2 SC as a coarse, low-pressure spray. Against a light infestation of ants, or other pests, use the 0.25% dilution of Spectre 2 SC. Use a straw tip or pin tip nozzle for crack and crevice applications. Do not apply Spectre 2 SC at a concentration higher than 0.5%. Do not reapply more often that every four weeks.
Interior Applications in Non-Food-Handling Areas
Spot or crack/crevice applications of Spectre 2 SC may be made in non-food/feed areas such as garbage rooms, lavatories, floor drains (to sewers), entries, and vestibules, offices, locker rooms, machine rooms, boiler rooms, garages, mop closets and storage.
Interior Applications in Food-Handling Areas
Food-handling areas are areas where food and food products are held, processed, prepared or served. Application of Spectre 2 SC in food- handling areas of food-handling establishments is limited to spot or crack/crevice treatments. The food-handling area may not be in operation during application. Exposed food must be covered or removed prior to application. After application, all food contact surfaces in the treated areas must be washed with an effective cleaning compound followed by a potable water rinse before resuming food operations. Do not apply directly to food, food packaging or food contact surfaces.
Limited Exterior Application to Structures
Exterior application of Spectre 2 SC is limited to spot and crack/crevice treatments where pests enter the structure such as around doors, windows, eaves, attic vents, and holes in exterior walls where utilities enter. Apply a maximum of 1.2 fl oz of dilution per 2 square feet.
If you will notice this is the exact same ingredient of phanthom; and , if you go to phantoms review it is an excellent spray to use against bed bugs. I recently used, and it took about a week to see good results. I was concerned about the first three days, because I really did not see any difference. Then I started finding dead bugs on a daily basis. I also washed clothes and bed linen every night. And vacuumed every evening and discarded vacuum bag. After seven days I don't notice any bugs, but I am ready for a counter attack. So I applied some perithin with a synergen in it. (you can find a cheap one on do my own). And in three days will apply the spectre 2 again. You have to confuse them and fight them with determination.
This is really powerful stuff. We didn't expect it to work so quickly, but after putting it down on the bedframe and all the baseboards, the body count really started to rise. We only saw 4 live bugs the week after, then applied Temprid to the bed frames cracks and have only seen one live bug this week. And he was half-dead. There is no odor to this chemical at all, and it dries clear. We're alternating Temprid and Spectre until all the live bugs are gone. Just be sure and treat the baseboards as well as the bed. This week we found a dead bug, looks like he was walking along the baseboard toward the bed, but died midway. Had we not treated the baseboards as well, they would have taken up residence there.
I'm a pest controller, I use this along with Temprid FX and Gentrol to treat bed bugs with tremendous success. I highly recommend it.
Also, shipping was really fast, I received it 2 days before I expected.
Can Spectre 2 SC be used outside around the perimeter of the house?
Exterior application of Spectre 2 SC is limited to spot and crack/crevice treatments where pests enter the structure such as around doors, windows, eaves, attic vents, and holes in exterior walls where utilities enter.
Spectre 2 SC is labeled for roaches and should do a good job. This can be used indoors and outdoors. Indoors, you will spray around the cracks, crevices and baseboards in the problem areas. Once the product is dry, it is safe for any children and/or pets to return to the area. Outdoors, you will spray around the perimeter of your home. The good thing about this product is that it is a non-repellent. This means that the roaches will not detect it when they come in contact with it. They will just get it on themselves and die as well as carrying it back to the colony and spreading it throughout.
Another good item to use is Gentrol IGR (insect growth regulator). This will stop the roaches from reproducing. It can be mixed in the same tank as Spectre.
their was not many reviews on this product. In the past I ordered Suspend SC. Your thoughts on which product best fits my needs for bedbugs.
Spectre 2SC is labeled to be used for the treatment of bed bugs as a crack and crevice spray, around baseboards, doors and windows, and plumbing and pipe fixtures. It is recommended to use additional products to successfully treat for bedbugs as it takes more than one product to treat the problem successfully. A great start would be to take a look at our bed bug guide, which will direct you to our best products that have been most effective on eradicating bed bugs, as well as give you video guides and helpful hints to make the process most effective.
I wanted to know how long it takes effect for all types of bugs especially for bed bugs
The kill time for Spectre 2 SC can vary from hours to a couple days. It will depend on how much the insect picked up on it’s body and the health of the insect at the time. When treating for bedbugs, a single product should not be used exclusively. Multiple products are recommended. Please take a look at our Bed Bug Treatment Guides and Videos for proper treatment procedures.
