    Q
    I have a Taexx system. How do I use it without hiring a pest company?
    A

    We do sell products like Optigard Flex and Tandem that can be used in the system, but nothing to technically service it. You would want to try and locate the manufacturer of the system or a local company that has the equipment to service the system for you.

    Q
    How long does Tandem last outdoors?
    How long does it last outdoors? Does the stronger rate make it last longer?
    A
    Tandem will hold like most other insecticides outdoors which is anywhere from 30-90 days depending on the elements in the area and how they effect it. The stronger rate on the label will provide a quicker knockdown for heavier infestations and can help provide a stronger product for longer on the surface.

    Q
    How does Tandem do on treating Mosquitos? How does it compare to Talstar p?
    A
    Tandem is a brand new product but it is showing promise as a mosquito control product. Because it is so new we don't have any comparison information for you at this point. Talstar P is still the most commonly used product for mosquito control. Most pros choose to mix it with Nyguard IGR to sterilize the adults so they cannot lay eggs before they die after coming into contact with treated areas.

  • Asked by Scott from Waterville Valley, Nh
    06/01/2016
    Q
    Is Tandem Insecticide or Onslaught FastCap better for spider control?
    I will continue purchasing from you, as I will only use the pest control service once yearly. My concern is spiders. Should I purchase Tandem or Onslaught Fastcap from you going forward? Thanks.
    A

    Either Tandem or Onslaught FastCap would be great for spiders as they are both micro-encapsulated and, therefore, easy for these hard-to-kill pests to pick up on their legs and bodies. Onslaught Fastcap would be the faster kill overall due to the added synergist.

    Tandem works awesome in treating Mosquitos in yards and mulch. It is microencapsulated so the active ingredient is protected from the outside elements, therefore offering a more successful kill. It is also specifically labeled for use indoors and out, in lawns, shrubs, etc.

    Q
    Can Tandem be used in the attic?
    We have a pest company come out and spray but we have a large tree near the house and I think the roaches come in from the attic. I see dead roaches outside but see live ones in the house(large tree roaches).
    A
    Tandem is labeled to be applied in the attic following the instructions on the product label.  Please take a moment to read over our article on General Home Pest Control to help prevent these roaches from getting inside.
