    Q
    Can Suspend SC be mixed at 2 fl oz per gallon of water without losing it's efficacy?
    A

    Unfortunately, per the product label the maximum mix rate of Suspend SC is 1.5 fl oz per gallon of water depending on the insects you are targeting. We cannot advise mixing insecticides at a higher rate than the product label by the manufacturer due to a few reasons. 

    The product labels for insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, etc have been reviewed and approved by the EPA and, therefore, provides the legally amount allowed to be applied per application or per year for that pesticide or herbicide. The Label is the Law.

    Second, the manufacturers and reseach teams spend months/years and money into into developing and testing products before product labels are issued, approved and available for retail. The application rates listed on the product labels have been proven scientifically to be effective for treating the pests/weeds/diseases on that label therefore mixing at a higher rate than what is recommended is not going to necessarily going to be better or give faster results. In fact, using too much product can cause undesired effects like insect repellency, unnecessary risk to people and non-target animals, and simply wasting your time and money.

    Q
    Is Suspend SC the best option for bed bugs ?
    A

    Suspend SC is labeled for bed bugs, however, if bedbugs have been found in the home you will want to follow our detailed bedbug guide which will take you through each step necessary to completely eliminate the population. As you go through the guide linked below you will see the non chemical steps (such as washing and drying clothes and linens) as well as chemical steps including where and how to use each product. Our Bed Bug kits are the best route to make sure you are using the best products on the market and without breaking the bank. Each kit is designed to treat a different size home or number of rooms, so you can choose the one best suited to the areas you have effected by the pest problem. The kits come with all the products need to do a complete treatment in all the places bed bugs can hide and enough product to complete roughly 4 repeat applications. Since every home and infestation is different you will want to do diligent and meticulous treatments with the products every 7-14 days until you can go 30 days in a row with no signs of live bed bugs and no new bites on the occupants of the home. If you have any questions regarding info you see in our guide or the products within the kits please let us know, and we would be more than happy to assist you.

    Q
    I used Suspend SC for roaches and there are tons more roaches now. Does that mean it's working?
    A

    Suspend SC is labeled for roaches and should do a great job helping you eliminate the infestation. It is possile that after the first application you may see a couple of more roaches than before, but you should start to see some results after 3-4 weeks. This product is designed to kill insects, including roaches, that cross it’s path. It is not designed to eradicate roaches alone in every situation. We recommend, that in addition to a concentrated liquid insecticide like Suspend SC, you also use a high quality roach bait gel indoors such as Maxforce FC Magnum to help get the roaches that hide in places where you cannot spray (cabinets, counter tops, drawers) as well as an insect growth regulator such as Gentrol Point Source to help stop the breeding cycle of the roaches. You can purchase both of these products together in our Roach Control Kit Rotation A. Instead of Suspend SC, Temprid FX is included in the kit in it’s place. Please take a moment to review our How to Get Rid of Roaches Guide for more information on implementing a successful treatment plan.

    Q
    Can Suspend SC be applied unfinished basement ceiling where you see all the wood beams?
    Can Suspend SC be applied unfinished basement ceiling where you see all the wood beams? If not, what product can I use for to prevent pests as well as for the termites.
    A
    Suspend SC may be applied indoors to baseboards, cracks, and crevices for general pest control. For wood-destroying insects such as termites, carpenter ants, powder post beetles, etc, we would recommend using Bora-Care on your untreated, raw wood. Bora-Care will penetrate up to 4 inches into the wood and last the lifetime of the wood. Please be sure to review the product label for complete application instructions.

    Q
    Need instant gnat killer and something to spray safely in kitchen, would Suspend work?
    A

    If you are looking for a product as a contact kill spray that is safe for crevices and open air spaces of the home you can use a product like Microcare Aerosol. For a residual product to use along crevices, windows, and baseboards you could apply a product like Gentrol Complete which will last for at least several weeks on the surface continuing to kill anything that crawls over or lands on the treated surfaces. You will want to determine what species of gnat you have in the home so you can locate and eliminate the breeding site and source of it in your home.

    Q
    My mom has copd and on oxygen 24/7. Exterminator says if she leaves for a day Suspend SC is then harmless. True?
    My mom is very frail... breathing problems and on oxygen 24/7.. also has two cats...Exterminator says the chemical is harmless the following day... I need to know for sure if this is correct before putting her in any risk. Thanks
    A

    That information is not available on the Suspend SC safety data sheet unfortunately, and it's not something provided to us by the manufacturer. For that information, you will need to contact Bayer directly, the phone number for their product information is: 1-800-331-2867.  It is also recommended to speak with her doctor before applying any product as we cannot be certain of how everyone would respond to products.

    Q
    Will Suspend SC control bermuda mites?

    While its possible the Suspend or other similar active ingredient products could potentially control bermudagrass mites, the only product specifically listed for their control that we are aware of is the Triple Crown Insecticide

    Q
    How do I measure the liquid in the Suspend SC container to get the correct amount? I can't seem to get the small spout measuring side to fill up.
    A

    We are sorry to hear that you are having trouble measuring Suspend SC into the measuring side. The product can be measured by squeezing the bottle and allowing it to go up the straw on the side of the bottle to fill the measuring side. Once measured to the amount you want (1.5-2oz) you fill it into your gallon sprayer and spray. Please make sure to agitate the mixture first before applying.
