    Q
    Can Suspend SC be used for flea treatments indoors as a broadcast?
    I have ordered ultracide but have been very impressed with suspend SC outside and would love to use it inside for my flea issue. I have read prior testimonials and on certain websites that suspend SC can be used as a broadcasting agent for fleas indoors.
    A

    Per the Suspend SC product label: For control of carpet beetles, fleas and ticks indoors, apply as a coarse, low pressure crack and crevice spot treatment to problem areas and infested habitats. Do not treat entire floor, carpet or floor coverings. Do not apply as a space spray. Application to furniture should be restricted to areas where prolonged contact by humans will not occur. Care should be taken to limit spot treatment to pet beds and infested floor coverings.

    The Ultracide you ordered is a fantastic option for indoor broadcast treatments as it has a knock down and residual as well as an IGR within the can. Be sure to vacuum at least every other day to stimulate egg hatch and pull up any live or dead adults and feces.

    Please see our Flea Treatment Guide for more tips and information.

    Q
    Is Suspend SC non-detectable for carpenter ants?
    A

    Suspend SC is not a non-repellent product, so during the initial application insects could potentially detect the product. However as the product dries to the surface it will become less noticeable to insects in general and they will continue to walk over the treat surface. If you are looking for an outdoor home foundation spray that is a non-repellent you could go with a product like Termidor SC or Dominion 2L, both of which work very well for carpenter ants as well as other pests.

    Q
    Will Suspend SC harm my dog if he eats out of his food bowl where I had sprayed?
    I had sprayed around 5:30pm outside of our home for roaches. My husband feed our dog outside couple hrs after I had sprayed the concrete around 7:40pm. Our dog tends to knock his food out of his bowl and eat the rest off the ground. Because I had sprayed earlier and he licked the area will it make him sick?
    A

    Once Suspend SC has dried, it is safe for pets to eat in the area. This should not harm your pet because the product is dry and does not reactivate if the area gets wet again. If you notice any changes in your pet, we would recommend contacting Poison Control and/or your vet.

    Q
    How long do you wait to use household cleaners after Suspend SC is applied?
    A

    Suspend SC  should be applied directly into cracks, crevices, wall voids, and small spot treatments. When applied as specified on the product label, cleaning would have no effect on the product after the initial application dries completely.

    Q
    I have small children and a dog. What do I use for indoor pest control?
    I have 2 small children, and a dog. I live in North Texas and have problems with ants, roaches, and crickets. What should I use inside the house?
    A

    A general insecticide, such as Suspend SC, can be used indoors to kill and prevent ants, roaches, crickets, and various other insects.  This product is mixed with water and applied around baseboards and cracks and crevices.  Be sure to keep pets and children out of the area until the product has dried completely, usually1-2 hours. The mixing rate of Suspend SC is 0.25-1.5 fl oz per gallon of water.  For general pest control, we recommend using the 0.25 fl oz per gallon of water rate.

    Q
    Does Suspend SC really kill bed bugs?

    While Suspend SC is labeled for bedbugs and some still use it for that pest, there are some known resisitance issues with it, so it is not commonly recommended.   You may want to look over our Bed Bug Guide for more information on treating and preventing this pest.

    Q
    Will steam cleaning the floor affect Suspend SC in crevices etc?
    I used suspend sc around edge of floor and cracks and crevices. I removed carpet (due to allergies) and applied a laminate floor. I am not supposed to steam laminate but allergies require I sometime take mop up to edges of floor. Will this cause suspend SC (after it has dried) to be rendered inactive in anyway? Thank you
    A

     If you were to mop along the edges of the wall where Suspend SC was applied, it would take it up.

    Q
    Is Suspend SC ok for use indoors for flea control?
    I've sprayed about 8 gallons of Deltamethrin mixed with the Precor about every other day and still see about 3 to 4 fleas a day. I even vacuum every other day. This is my concrete basement. Does the poison continue to work everyday. Or do I need to try something else. It has helped but hasn't gotten rid of them all. Am I doing the correct thing?? Please help.
    A

    No, you’ve been treating too often and with too much product. The main thing to know when dealing with fleas is that there is no overnight fix for them, it can take multiple applications to completely eliminate them sometimes 2-3 treatments or more.  You also want to make sure that you are following the instructions on the product labels that you are using.  Suspend SC is not labeled to be used anymore often than once every 21 days.   Per the product label for indoor applications, you should also only apply as a coarse, low pressure crack and crevice spot treatment to problem areas and infested habitats. Do not treat entire floor, carpet or floor coverings. Do not apply as a space spray. Application to furniture should be restricted to areas where prolonged contact by humans will not occur. Care should be taken to limit spot treatment to pet beds and infested floor coverings. Suspend SC would not be a good choice for indoor flea control because it can only be used over cracks and crevices. For indoors, we would highly recommend our Indoor Flea Kit.  It is our most popular product for indoor flea control and is usually the final treatment that people end up using that works when they have tried everything else. Please read over our Flea Treatment Guide, refer to section 2.2.

    Q
    Does Suspend harm beneficial insects e.g. honeybees and ladybugs?
    A

    Suspend SC can kill beneficial insects like bees and butterflies if they contact a treated surface long enough to receive a lethal dose and is labeled for asian lady beetles aka lady bugs.  It is not really selective in the insects it kills.

  • Asked by Rusty
    07/05/2010
    Q
    Can Suspend SC be used to treat bagworms with a garden hose type sprayer?
    If this is not recommended, can Talstar One be used as a substitute for the same type application?
    A
    Yes. Suspend SC can be used in a hose end sprayer to treat for bagworms as long as you can properly calibrate the hose end sprayer to apply the correct amount of product per gallon of water. The Suspend SC product label recommends 8 oz of product per 100 gallons of water. Applications should start in April and continue monthly through June for bagworm control. (treatments should start around the time when the larva move out of the mother's bag and before they make their own bags) Be sure foliage is sprayed thoroughly to the point of runoff to achieve adequate coverage. While both Suspend SC and Talstar P can be used for bagworm control, Talstar is the most recommended for bagworm control because it is known to be super gentle on most plants, trees and bushes. Talstar may also be easier to measure for this use, .25 ounce per 1,000 sq ft.

    Q
    Which is better Cynoff EC or Suspend SC?
    This is for general use/prevention inside and outside of my house. I live in Missouri, and I have a cat.
    A
    Cynoff EC and Suspend SC are both great products and both would do a great job for your needs. Cynoff EC contains the active ingredient cypermethrin which is known to be one of the most effective active ingredients for spider control, but Cynoff EC also has a very limited product label. Suspend SC on the other hand has a much broader label and is one of our best sellers for general pest control.

    Q
    How often should I use Suspend SC outside?
    Also, how often can i use Termidor outside.
    A
    All insecticides have different times they will last outside which is mainly dependant on where you live, climate, how hot or how much rain you have, etc.   Suspend typically will last for 60 days but can be applied more often or less often depending on where you live.  Termidor is typically applied every 3 to 4 months around the perimeter for best results.
