    Q
    Approximately how long will it take to kill spiders with Suspend SC?
    I sprayed it directly on 2 hobo spiders and they seem unaffected by it
    A
    While Suspend SC offers a long lasting residual to keep killing insects even after it has dried it is not an immediate knockdown product. Suspend SC will take a few hours to kill spiders even if they are sprayed directly with the product. If you need something with an immediate knockdown you will need to use an aerosol pyrethrin spray such as 565 Plus XLO or Microcare.

    Q
    Tiny black bugs in crevices and corners of carpet. Don't go into kitchen or anywhere else.
    They are so small that they almost look like mold but I have dug up a couple and they are hard shelled, tiny bugs. They like moisture because when I shampooed the carpet, they got worse. When I steamed the carpet, they got worse. I can't stand it, please help! will this work?
    A
    Unfortunately without seeing the insect we have no way to identify it. We recommend you either call a professional pest control company and have them come out and do a free inspection (most companies offer a free inspection/identification) or take samples of the insect to your local cooperative extension office to have the insects identified. Once you have the insects identified we can help you select the products you will need to eliminate them.

    Q
    Can Suspend SC be used on my dock to control spiders?
    I am concerned about spraying the dock on the overspray getting into the lake. Will Suspend SC hurt the fish and wildlife in the lake? Is this the best product to use around the house and the dock?
    A
    Suspend SC is toxic to aquatic life and care should be taken to make sure it does not get into the water. We do carry Essentria IC3 which can be safely used around water as it not toxic to fish or other aquatic animals. Essentria IC3 is labeled for spiders as well as many other insects and would be a good choice for you.

    Q
    My Tropical plants have scale. Will Suspend SC kill scale?
    A
    Suspend SC is labeled for scale insects when they are still in the "crawler" stage. If the scale insects on your plants are past this stage or if you are not sure what stage they are in we recommend you contact your local cooperative extension office and speak to the mater gardener on staff. The master gardener can help with an accurate insect ID and also offer guidance on what will work best on the type of plant and insect you are dealing with.

    Q
    What would you recommend to kill ants on a brick paver patio?
    A
    Suspend SC is a great product to control ants both inside and outside your home. You would mix 1 ounce to 1 gallon of water and spray all around your foundation, window and door frames, nearby foliage of bushes and ornamentals, and any side walks, driveways or in your case pavers, where ants are present. This product dries clear and has almost no odor, and as soon as the product has dried it is safe to resume normal activity in the treated area. Let us know if you have any other questions.

    Q
    Will Suspend SC harm farm fowl
    I have 18 rosters right now will it harm them if they eat bugs that have come in contact with Suspend SC.
    A
    Suspend SC is only designed to kill small insects. The roosters would need to ingest quite a few of the treated insects to have an effect on them.  Just make sure they are out of the area being treated until the area dries

    Q
    I purchased Suspend SC for both bed bug & roach control. Will this work for both?
    A

    Suspend SC used to be the go to product for bed bug control. However, there have been signs that some strains of bed bugs have become resistant to it since it has been used so much.  Still, bed bug control has much better success if you use a variety of products. Our bed bug kits have many products that are considered the top bed bug control products. Our kits also come with full instructions.  They have a very high success rate with our customers and your best chance of eliminating a bed bug infestation. We would suggest adding an IGR (insect growth regulator) called Gentrol to halt the reproductive cycle of the bedbugs and roaches. Also, apply a roach bait in areas where you have not sprayed. Please click on the links below for additional treatment information for both insects.

    Q
    We need a product that can be used for bees ,mites ,fleas and ants inside on furn plus wall voids
    We are having a horrible year for bugs here in north idaho .We started off with ants which progressed to bald faced hornets then yellow jackets and then fleas !! Two days after we noticed the fleas I started getting some kind of micro bug that was crawling on my face and ess any hairy areas . I couldn't see them and only occasionally had a bite from them .I thought it was the fleas at first but after doing some research (this was my first experience with fleas in fourty some years ) I found that they dont stay on humans like that .So after much research and proccess of elimination we came to the conclusion it is mites .So to make a long story short .We have a bee nest in the walls ,bald faced hornet nest under the eves of the car port and ant nest in the walls and god knows what else and the mites and a few fleas in the house . I am a VERY clean person and have been cleaning for 2 months straight and am now at the point where I feel these bugs every now and then but nothing like what it was . Our dog has now suffered an allergic reaction to these mites but the vet could not see a flea or mite on her .I did however see some tannish red very tiny mites in her ear at one point .We also find black things all over the floor on and off .They dont move and seem awfully big to belong to the mite that is microscopic .Can you recommend a product or product's that we can use not only in wall voids but in our whole home (furniture ,walls, cracks ,crevices ) ? We found some kind of nest in the box spring of our bed .Which we removed and steam cleaned the bed and covered with pest rated mattress encasements .We also have a history of having mice and squirrels getting in by our water tank and coming into the wall voids .We blocked as many entrances as we could find and put out decon .But we need a whole house treatment .As economically as possible .This is a rental and we are on fixed incomes and my husband has very serious health problems .So we cant afford a lot and the landlord is no help .If you could recommend the best all purpose (safe as possible) solutions I would be so grateful

    It is important to be absolutely sure you are actually dealing with a rat or bird mite. Have the suspected mite identified by a reputable source, such as your local cooperative extension office or a reputable pest control operator. Treatments will vary for different pests. If you do indeed have mites, you must first find the source of the infestation, usually a rat/bird nest or a dead rat/bird on or in the home. Removal of the infested nest or carcasses and a thorough cleanup is necessary. For treatment in the home, we recommend you frequently vacuum all carpet and upholstery and dispose of the bag or vacuum contents in a sealed bag outdoors. Spray Sterifab on couches, chairs and other upholstered furniture where you may spend time resting. Use MotherEarth Dust in all cracks and crevices around the perimeter of the room. Apply a thin coat of MotherEarth dust to rugs and carpets. Rake (not sweep) nap back and forth, causing dust to enter rug or carpet. Let product sit overnight. Repeat application as necessary and vacuum every 3 - 4 days for effective control. MotherEarth dust does not have a fast knockdown, it can take several days for insects to die after they contact the dust. Onslaught can be used for a faster knockdown. Thoroughly apply as a fine particle broadcast spray using a hand pump sprayer to infested rugs and carpets and other cracks and crevices around the perimeter of each room. Put all clothes through the dryer on high heat to help kill mites and their eggs.We have had many customers use the above recommendations with great success. Most customers report that it can take several months to get rid of all of the mites. Since there has not been much research on controlling rodent/bird mites this program is only a suggestion and may not work for every situation. Finding and removing the source of the infestation is very important and is the key to getting rid of the mites for good. Onslaught and Mother Earth are very broadly labeled and can be used to eliminate most common pest insects.

    Q
    How to treat for termites in Arizona.
    Also, I have only noticed a few termite mud trails on my foundation outside. I want to nip the problem as soon as possible. I have read that termites can come from mulch or wood chip areas. Is this true? What is a good, general indoor/outdoor pesticide that I can use to kill other bugs?? Bifenthrin,deltamethrin, or permethrin? I currently use the store bought Ortho home defense, which I believe has Bifenthrin as the active ingredient. This has worked ok but I want to start using professional strength and mixing myself. Which is best?
    A
    For general insect control outdoors you can use Suspend SC. This contains deltamethrin and is a professional grade strength. If you would like to continue using bifenthrin - consider Talstar P which contains 7.9 % bifenthrin.

    Q
    Can the Suspend Sc be used in the 2 gal spray mixture with the nyguard igr?
    We have many pests running around on our lawn turf with 4 dogs that is bound to happen. I am now taking the oppurtunity to pick up feces, our critters consist of many kind of roaches beetles and whatever else is attracted to the poops. So I am hoping that this will knock them out completely, so will it even be necessary to include the igr for additional killing power? Thank You In Advance!
    A
    Yes, the Suspend SC will do a great job of controling roaches, beetles as well as most any other lawn pest. Depending on the amount of insects present in your area will play a part in how long it will take for the population to dwindle until its gone. Spraying once every 30 days or so in the beginning will help control the population well and then you may be able to back off to spraying only once ever 60 days or so. You can mix the IGR into the mixture with the Suspend for added control to stop the insects reproductive cycle. As long as you keep pets and children out of the area while you are doing the treatment and until the areas have completely dried (30 min-2 hours) it is completely safe.

    Q
    Best insecticide/IGR combo treatment for ticks and mosquitoes in Massachusetts?
    I am located in MA, so some products like Talstar are not available to me, even though the pest control people use them :(. So I'm looking for a recommendation as to the best insecticide and IGR combo I can buy for usage here in MA. Looking to mainly treat the perimeter of my property for ticks and mosquitoes.
    A
    A good combination for ticks and mosquito control in MA is the insecticide Suspend SC and the IGR Pivot 10. They can both be shipped to your state.

    Q
    How do I eliminate chiggers in my yard? We have 4 acres with a pond.
    A
    I would recommend Suspend SC for chiggers in your yard. One gallon of solution treats about 1,000 sq. ft. so you would need over 43 gallons of solution for just one acre.

    Q
    Will Suspend SC kill symphylans?
    will suspend SC kill symphylans aka garden centipedes?
    A
    Suspend SC would probably kill symphylans that came into contact with it, but this product cannot be used in an edible garden. Evergreen Pyrethrum Concentrate is labeled for garden symphylan and can be used on edibles. Surface sprays offer limited control for garden centipedes because of the pest's ability to establish deep into the soil. You should also pack soil well before planting to reduce populations of this pest.
