    Q
    Will Suspend SC kill or deter Japanese Beetles on rose bushes? If so how often should it be applied?
    A
    According to the Suspend SC product label this product is labeled for Japanese beetles and will provide anti-feedant properties on treated ornamentals against Japanese beetles. We do recommend testing any pesticide you choose to use on one plant before treating all of the plants to check for damage. You do want to try to spray the leafy parts of plants while avoiding the blooms as much as possible. Applications should be repeated every 21 days to maintain control.

    Q
    Is springtime a good time to begin spraying around our cabin for fall and winter indoor fly problems?
    We've had a bad winter with cluster flies and want to improve our chances for next fall. Do we spray perimeter only or also indoors? Thanks.
    A
    You can go ahead and spray the exterior now to help stop the population from building but the actual exclusion sprays are recommended to start in August. Most of the exclusion applications are applied on the exterior of the structure though spraying inside and outside of window frames, door frames, and places where cables, pipes and wires enter in to the structure will double your chance of controlling the flies before they gather indoors.

    Q
    Will Suspend SC also kill termites?
    A
    You can use Suspend for localized control of an active infestation. Suspend should not be used to control future infestations. For this purpose we recommend Termidor SC. Here is a great article that explains how to put down a liquid barrier treatment: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/how-to-perform-termite-treatment-a-87.html

  • Asked by Lilly from Phila, Pa
    08/31/2013
    Q
    Can I mix suspend sc and tempo sc to kill bed bugs?
    A
    Since both products contain synthetic pyrethroids there is no valid reason to mix Suspend SC and Tempo together, it would not make either product work better or produce better results, though it could make treated areas repellent to insects lessening the effectiveness of the treatment. Instead you may want to choose a product that has dual active ingredients such as Transport or Temprid. This will help avoid any type of resistance issue since both of the products contain two active ingredients from different classes of insecticides.

  • Asked by Richard from Port St Joe, Florida, Also Morganton, Nc
    03/06/2014
    Q
    Do you recommend Demon, Suspend SC or some other?
    A local professional company uses Demon. I assume that is Demon WP Insecticide. After reading your info and watching your video what do you recommend for general home use?
    A
    Suspend SC and Demon WP are both synthetic pyrethroid products and both offer great control of general pests. Demon WP will last a bit longer outdoors and since it is a wettable powder it also stays on the surface of porous areas such as concrete or wood which creates a greater opportunity for insects to come into contact with it. The downside to this is that Demon WP will leave behind a white powdery residue that is especially noticeable on dark surfaces. Both Demon WP and Suspend SC can be used indoors for pest control but because of the white powdery residue that Demon WP can leave behind it may be best to stick with Suspend SC for this use

    Q
    I have varied carpet beetles that emerged 3 mos. after suspend and gentrol . Should I now use pheremone traps
    I have been spraying outside perimeter with home defense and placed boric acid tablets in basement and attic.
    A
    It sounds like the beetles were either re-introduced to the home or there was some larvae that are just now emerging. You can likely do another spray with the Suspend and Gentrol and get control over what is left. While you could try the beetle pheromone traps the vacuuming, cleaning and spraying of the residual insecticides will be the most effect. For further tips on carpet beetle control you can refer to our articles "Varied Carpet Beetle Identification and Biology" and "How To Get Rid of Carpet Beetles".

    Q
    Ants
    I have been using Suspend SC but this year I have small ants that seem to be coming from the ground and trees. What is most effective for these? There looks like small mud mounds in the area, they must have a hotel underground.
    A
    Suspend SC is still one of the best ants sprays on the market. Suspend can be sprayed as a broadcast or spot treatment on the lawn, on bushes, shrubs, trees and as a perimeter treatment around the foundation of your home. It is difficult to identify the specie of ant that you have without having a visual of the ant available. Please call us at 866-581-7378 for further assistance identifying the ant specie if needed.

    Q
    Will Suspend SC kill bird mites?
    mites are on chicken and dogs and now us
    A

    Yes, Suspend SC will kill bird mites only in poultry houses, it cannot be used in the home for treatment. Suspend SC should NOT be applied to the chickens, dogs or humans for the treatment of bird mites. Bird mites are very difficult to treat and control so in addition to just spraying you also need to vacuum regularly and thoroughly.  Also the use of some other key products in addition to Suspend SC will help treat the mites faster.  Please read our "How to Get Rid of Bird Mites" article for further recommendations.

    Q
    Suspends vs Tempo
    Which has less odor ? Which has the most coverage i.e. more area for same price? Suspends has 16oz and Tempo has 8oz. Would I be smarter to buy Suspends? I have been doing my own spraying for years but never asked the question. I thought I recall Suspend had a slight odor and tempo had none at all.
    A
    We would recommend Suspend Polyzone.  Suspend polyzone is ordorless and allows for a longer residual at 90 days. Please let us know if you have anymore questions.

    Q
    I checked with Bayer and they say that Suspend "suppresses" mites meaning it only kills 50% so not sure you
    can say it is that effective. Also says this on the label. Have your customers found it effective for bird mites?
    A
    Suspend SC is not labeled for bird mites and we do not recommend it for that use. Susped is successfully used for plant infesting mites. It is important to be absolutely sure you are actually dealing with bird mites. Have the suspected bird 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. Treatment for say bedbugs is much different than the treatment for bird mites.  If you do indeed have bird mites, you must first find the source of the infestation, usually a bird nest or a dead bird on or in the home. Removal of the infested nest or bird 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 Cimexa 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. Finding and removing the source of the infestation is very important and is the key to getting rid of the mites for good.

  • Asked by Osvaldo from Tampa, Fl
    08/15/2015
    Q
    Can I use Suspend SC inside for roaches?
    How many ounces do I use for a 3 gallon sprayer?
    A

    Suspend SC is labeled for roaches, and should do a great job helping you eliminate the infestation. You would use .25 to 1.5 ounces per gallon of water.  We recommend that in addition to a concentrated liquid insecticide like Suspend SC you also use a high quality roach bait gel, as well as an insect growth regulator to help stop the breeding cycle of the roaches. We would actually recommend one of our Roach Control Kits.  We also have some great advice here "How To Treat for Roaches".
