    Q
    Can I mix Bifen IT and Suspend Polyzone to spray?
    A

    Suspend Polyzone and Bifen IT should not be mixed together.  Mixing insecticides together doesn’t create a more powerful product, and it can cause repellency issues causing the insects to avoid the sprayed areas all together.

    Q
    Is Suspend Polyzone better than Suspend SC or Permethrin SFR 36.8%? Also, can I apply this to my dogs like Permethrin?
    A

    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.

    Q
    Can you use Suspend Polyzone if you are pregnant?
    A

    We do not recommend that you do the treatment of Suspend Polyzone, but rather have someone else spray for you just to stay on the side of caution during pregnancy. We recommend that you stay out of the treated area until it has completely dried and then it would be safe to return to.

  • Asked by Mike from Waterford, Michigan
    09/16/2013
    Q
    Will Suspend Polyzone work for Carpenter ants?
    A
    Suspend Polyzone will carpenter ants that come in contact with the treated area. We recommend using a product that will be taken back the colony like our Carpenter Ant Kit.
    Both baits work together to eliminate the carpenter ant colony. Certain carpenter ants may take better to one bait than the other, giving you a greater chance of bait acceptance and effectiveness. In addition, the Maxforce gel is more versatile in where you can place it. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

  • Asked by Bill from North Port, Fl
    11/23/2015
    Q
    What is the best product to kill or get rid of millipedes in Southwest Florida?
    A

    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.

  • Asked by Robert from New Orleans, La
    04/06/2016
    Q
    Can Suspend Polyzone be sprayed on carpets (mixed with an IGR) for fleas?
    Exterminator was previously spraying Dragnet mixed with IGR on all flooring services in my house, including carpet, tile and hardwood. I would like to start treating on my own and see that Dragnet is discontinued. Can I spray this on all floors, if not where should it be sprayed indoors or other suggestions?
    A

    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.

  • Asked by Amy from Prescott, Az
    02/05/2018
    Q
    Can you spray grass with Suspend Polyzone?
    We are trying to get rid of clover mites.
    A

    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.

  • Asked by Jeff from Okoboji, Iowa
    07/09/2014
    Q
    Is Suspend Polyzone the same as Bayer's Annihilator Polyzone and would you recommend this for mosquitoes?
    A
    We do not carry the Annihilator so do not know if it is the same as the Suspend Polyzone.  While Suspend Polyzone is labeled for mosquito, Talstar P is our most popular selling product for mosquito control.  It is a liquid concentrate that you mix with water and apply using any hand pump sprayer or backpack sprayer.  The key is to apply it to all shrubs, trees, and other foliage around the house or patio you are trying to provide relief at.  It should be directed not only on top of the leaves and plants, but on the underside of the leaves as well which is where the mosquitoes hang out.  It should be applied every 30 days for optimum control.  It is also very good for bees and wasps, however you would not want to apply it or any other product directly to play sets where children will touch treated surfaces.  Also, Talstar P is labeled for over 100 different insects and will work in just about any situation.

  • Asked by Margaret from Hallandale Beach, Fl

    Q
    Is Suspend Polyzone pet friendly/odor free?
    I have been using RAID to kill roaches that have infiltrated our hallway since a new tenant moved in next door to me. I spray every morning and evening - and then because I have COPD, my lungs hurt and I get asthma attacks.
    A

    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.
