Suspend Polyzone and Suspend SC? share the same active ingredient but 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. Suspend SC and Suspend Polyzone cannot be applied to animals including dogs.

We would recommend using Suspend Polyzone. This product features a proprietary polymer layer that protects the active ingredient from weather, irrigation and mechanical abrasion which is perfect for Florida weather. This will last approximately 90 days indoors and outdoors. Be sure to spray around the perimeter of your home, around windows and doors, etc. when treating outdoors. Indoors, you will spray around baseboards, cracks and crevices. The mixing ratio is 0.75 fl. oz. per gallon of water. Once the product has dried completely, it is safe for animals and children to return to the area. It is important to keep in mind that millipedes breed in moist, dark areas, so look for ways you can make the environment less conducive for these insects. See our General Pest Prevention Guide for information on how to use good sanitation and exclusion to eliminate these an other pests from your home.
Suspend Polyzone is only for treating cracks and crevices inside, it cannot be used as a broadcast across floors. Tengard is an option that has the same active as Dragnet. For hard surfaces though you do not need to treat the entire floor. Treatment should be more directed to cracks and crevices on hardwood and tile floors as that is where the eggs and young would be. Please see our Flea Treatment Guide for more tips and information about treating this pest.
Suspend Polyzone is not specifically labeled for clover mites. We would suggest applying Bifen IT. Bifen IT is labeled to treat for clover mites when used accordingly. Clover mites are barely smaller than a pinhead. You may notice clover mites as dark red moving specks which occur in large numbers. They are generally found crawling aroudn doors, windows, sidings, curtains, or furniture. Be sure to treat the ground at least 5-10 feet from the structure where you are seeing the clover mites.

Suspend Polyzone is safe in homes that have children and pets if used as directed on the product label. They should not be in the treated area during application and when the surfaces are wet. They can re-enter when completely dried. The scent has a sweet characteristic, mild odor that eventually dissipates. We recommend that you do not spray with any liquids if your lungs hurt and you have asthma attacks and COPD. We recommend that you apply a professional roach bait gel such as the Maxforce bait stations and consult with your doctor for treatments that are safe for you. We do offer non-poisonous glue boards also.
The mixing ratio of Suspend Polyzone is 0.25-1.5 fl. oz. per gallon of water for mosquitoes. It is recommended that you treat at the higher ratio, which is 1.5 fl. oz. per gallon of water for your first treatment, and for subsequent treatments, use 0.25 fl. oz. per gallon of water. For 50 gallons of water, you will use 12.5-75 fl. oz.
