    Q
    Whats the difference in Suspend SC & Polyzone?
    They both claim to last 3 months & have the same active ingredi
    A
    While both products do share the same active ingredient their formulations are very different. Suspend SC will only last for about 30 days outdoors (90 days indoors) while Suspend Polyzone has been tested and will last for 90 days outdoors. Suspend Polyzone has a unique poly coating over the particles of the product which protects it from weathering and makes the residual last longer. Suspend Polyzone was also designed to stay up on the surface of even very porous areas such as concrete or wood which makes the product more available to insects.

    Q
    What is the best exterior spray that you can use to keep insects off your house for the longest period?
    A
    Our most popular product that has the longest residual is called Suspend Polyzone.  It lasts longer than most products, about 90 days indoors and outdoors.  This is because it has a polymer technology that ensures the active ingredient stays where it’s applied after drying and protects it from weather, irrigation and mechanical interference.

    Q
    Will Suspend Polyzone kill stink bugs?
    A
    Apply Suspend Polyzone outdoors on all door frames, window frames, areas where utilities (cables, pipes, wires) enter into the structure, a band of soil 6 to 10 feet adjacent to the structure, also to a height of 2 to 3 feet on the foundation where pests may be active or may find entrance. As the stink bugs crawl over the treated area, they will receive a lethal does of the insecticide and usually die within a few hours. You should treat every month starting in August and ending in November for best results. Stinkbugs are usually not a problem for most people until fall when they start looking for a nice warm place to spend the winter.

    Q
    We are replacing our current pest control company,
    I currently have service with Terminix and pay almost $400 per year. I would like to do my own pest control. My service with termini is labeled "exterior general pest control". Can you help me know what I should use?
    A
    For general pest control, we would recommend a product called Suspend Polyzone. It is a very good general insecticide that will last for up to 90 days outdoors. It features a proprietary polymer layer that protects the active ingredient from weather, irrigation and mechanical abrasion. You will use 0.25 to 0.75 fl. oz. per gallon of water. This can be used around the perimeter of the home outdoors. It can also be used indoors as a crack and crevice treatment.

    Q
    Is Suspend Polyzone safe on exterior vinyl siding? What if it gets on the windows?
    My problem is mud divers and spiders on the siding up high.
    A
    The Suspend Polyzone should have no affect on siding on a home or any other type of material the home may be made out of. The Suspend Polyzone will dry clear so there should be no staining or discoloring of any sort, and any that gets on the window will either dry clear, or may leave a slight streak on the window much like when spraying with windex and it dries before you can get it wiped all the way across.

    Q
    Can my dog eat grass that has been treated with Suspend Polyzone?
    when mixed with water is only strong enough to kill small insects, like ants. Your dogs would have to eat a truckload of grass most likely to get sick, and they would probably get much more sick from the grass then the Talstar. However, of course we recommend anything you can do to minimize your dogs from eating the grass

    Suspend Polyzone when mixed with water is only strong enough to kill small insects, like ants.  Your dog would have to eat a truckload of grass most likely to get sick, and he/she would probably get much more sick from the grass then the Polyzone.  However, of course we recommend anything you can do to minimize your dog from eating the grass.  Pets should be out of the area during treatment until the area is dry as well.

    Q
    Is Suspend Polyzone safe to use around landscape plants?
    This was suggested as a perimeter treatment around out home. We have non-food landscape plants around our house and will likely have some contact with the product. Will this harm landscape plantings?
    A
    Suspend Polyzone is safe to use on ornamental plants and is labeled for use for many pests commonly found on ornamentals. We would not recommend spraying flowering plants or in areas where bees or similar pollinators are present so as not to harm these beneficial insects.

    Q
    Does Suspend polyzone leave a visable residue.
    I normally use Suspend SC but I want to change because the Polyzone lasts longer. I want to be sure that the Polyzone is also invsiable and leaves no residue just as the Suspend SC.
    A
    The polyzone will dry exactly the same as the Suspend SC it just has different microscopic parts that allow it to hold up to the outdoor elements longer.

    Q
    If I treat a cement patio with Suspend Polyzone and the sprinkler hits the treated area
    If I treat a cement patio with Suspend Polyzone and the sprinkler hits the treated area a couple days later, would it be safe for my dog to lick the standing water?
    A

    Suspend Polyzone once dry, will not reconstitute and as long as the product was applied according to the product label there should be no issues. The bigger issue with the sprinkler hitting the treated area is that it could wash the product away sooner than if it stayed dry so it would be best to have the sprinkler set to not spray the patio if possible.

  • Asked by Gene from Chandler Az
    02/18/2015
    Q
    What is the difference between Demand CS and Suspend Polyzone (besides the active ingredient)?
    Which will be more effective at scorpion control? Which will last longer outside in the Arizona heat? Been usin Demand CS for several years successfully, but wonder if Suspend Polyzone might work better and have a longer residual.
    A

    The biggest difference between Demand CS and Suspend Polyzone is the residual they have outdoors. Suspend Polyzone was designed with special time release polymer coating to hold up in heat, cold, and irrigation for up to 90 days. Demand CS will last approx 30 days.

    The treatment for Scorpions using either product is the same:

    Treat areas where scorpions may hide. Treat known or suspected harborages on and around exterior walls. Apply spot treatments into cracks, crevices, weep holes or other access points into hollow block walls or masonry veneer. Spray around and beneath stones and along rocky areas. Scorpions will often harbor beneath the bark on trees, so inspect these areas and treat as required. When possible, remove piles of debris and building materials near the exterior wall that can harbor the pests. Apply a perimeter treatment to the exterior walls spraying 2-3ft up the foundation and 2-3ft out on the adjacent soil. You may treat around piles of firewood, but do not treat firewood with this product.

    Q
    What can I use to get rid of spiders, ants and water bugs inside or outside of the home?
    A

    Suspend Polyzone is a great product that can be used indoors and outdoors around the perimeter of your home for insect control. It features an additional polymer in it that protects the active ingredient from weather, irrigation and mechanical abrasion.This controlled release formulation, which resists erosion, ensures your treatment will continue to control targeted pests for up to 90 days outdoors. It also stays right where you put it, so if you want to increase the effectiveness of your treatments, put the science of Suspend Polyzone to work for you. The mixing rate is 0.25-1.5 fl oz per gallon of water. This can be re-applied every 30 days but will last for up to 90 days.

  • Asked by Stev from Corpus Christi,tx
    06/05/2015
    Q
    How does Suspend Polyzone compare to Talstar P?
    Which has better results?
    A
    They are both excellent products for general pest control. Suspend Polyzone will give you 90 days of residual effectiveness regardless of rainfall and UV light due to its unique polymer formulation. Talstar will have roughly a 30 day residual outdoors. Both products have similar pest labels and will control many of the same insects. The biggest deciding factor between the two products will be the residual properties of each product.
