Tengard SFR Termiticide Insecticide

Tengard SFR containing Permethrin provides fast, effective, long lasting control for over 75 different types of pests both indoors and outdoors. Tengard SFR is professional grade, low-odor product. One quart makes up to 20 gallons of finished solution.

Tengard SFR is a Permethrin based product that acts as an insecticidal barrier against a broad range of insects such as ants, bees, fleas, aphids, beetles, ticks, roaches, and chiggers. Also used to control and prevent subterranean termite infestations in and around structures. For effective control, the insecticide emulsion must be adequately dispersed in the soil to establish a barrier between the structure and the termites in the soil. The manufacturer and DoMyOwnPestControl DO NOT warrant or guarantee against termite infestation or termite damage with the use of Do-It-Yourself termite control products. If you are not willing to accept these risks, PLEASE contact a reputable Termite Control company for a professional termite treatment.

Not for use in lawns for mosquitoes, only in and around livestock premises.  Nor can it be used to treat clothing.

How to Use Tengard SFR for a Subterranean Termite Treatment

How to Use Tengard SFR for a General Insecticide Application

How Tengard SFR Works

Tengard SFR is a liquid concentrate insecticide containing the active ingredient Permethrin. Permethrin is a synthetic pyrethroid that is made to mimic the chemical properties of naturally-occurring pyrethrins. When target pests come in contact with the direct spray or dried spray residual, permethrin attacks the central nervous system, causing paralysis and death. Tengard SFR contains a high percentage of permethrin for faster knockdown of target pests and convenient versatility.

Subterranean termites; Fleas, Ants, Cockroaches, Beetles, Livestock Pests, Flies, Wasps, Lawn and Ornamental Pests, Pantry Pests, Spiders

Target Uses

Tengard SFR is a broad label insecticide as well as a very effective termiticide for use in and around homes, on lawns and shrubs.

Tengard SFR is professional grade, low-odor product that is labeled to include everything from pre- and post-construction termite treatment, indoor and outdoor pest control, and turf and ornamental applications. More homes are treated with Tengard SFR by professional pest management companies than any other product.

Application Instructions

Always read the product label completely before use. Shake container well before using.

  • Indoor Treatments: for fleas, roaches, ticks, ants and other indoor pests, only 1 to 1.6 ounces is needed per gallon.
  • Outdoor treatments: for fleas, ticks, ants, mole crickets, chinch bugs and other insects, 1 ounce will treat 1000 square feet of lawn.

For subterranean termite treatments, Tengard SFR may be used pre-construction or as a post-construction treatment. For post-construction treatments, use 4 gallons of finished solution per 10 lineal feet of treatment area in a 6 in. by 6 in. trench adjacent to the structure. A continuous zone must be created for complete protection. See our article How to Do a Termite Treatment for more information. See product label for complete directions for termite treatments.

Each quart bottle yields 19 gallons of finished solution for most treatments, or covers 40,000-80,000 sq. ft. for lawn applications. Each 1.25 gallon bottle yields 95 gallons of finished solution for most treatments or covers 4-10 acres for broadcast applications.

Standard Application Dilution Rates / Mixing Ratios:

  • 1.67 fl. oz. (49 mL)/gal. of water – 0.5% a.i. – termite treatments; broadcast treatment outdoors for nuisance pests
  • 3.33 fl. oz. (99 mL)/gal. of water – 1.0% a.i. – treatment of preconstruction lumber and logs
  • 6.67 fl. oz. (197 mL)/gal. of water – 2.0% a.i. – limited pre- and post-construction termite applications
  • 0.4 to 0.8 fl. oz. (12 – 24 mL) in 4 to 25 gal. of water per 1,000 sq. ft. – lawn applications
  • 4 to 8 fl. oz. / 100 gallons OR 0.9 to 1.8 fl. oz./ 10,000 sq. ft. – ornamental plants; use sufficient volume of water to adequately cover foliage
  • 1-5 quarts / 100 gallons of water – ornamental trees; varies with pest
  • Use 4 gallons of 0.5% solution per 10 linear feet for termite barrier treatments.
  • For horizontal barrier termite treatments, apply to the soil surface at a rate of 1 gallon of finished solution per 10 sq. ft.

For control of subterranean termites pre-construction and post-construction; lawns adjacent to or around private homes, duplexes, town-houses, condominiums, house trailers, apartment complexes, carports, garages, fence lines, storage sheds, barns, residential structures, commercial and institutional buildings, and other areas where pests congregate or have been seen; plants intended for aesthetic purposes in interior gardens and plantscapes; inside residential homes and the non-food/feed areas of commercial establishments including garbage rooms, lavatories, floor drains (to sewers), entries and vestibules, offices, locker rooms, machine rooms, garages, mop closets, packaged good storage areas and other non-food/feed areas of Food Handling Establishments; in and on buildings and structures used for agricultural purposes and their immediate surroundings; Dairies, barns, feedlots, stables, poultry houses, swine and livestock houses, animal hospitals, pens and kennels, outside meat processing premises; Livestock spray for lactating and non-lactating dairy cattle and goats, beef cattle and sheep, poultry, swine, horses; Companion dogs; Fruit and Nut Trees around residential sites only: Almond, Apples, Cherries, Filberts, Peaches, Pears, Pistachios


For fleas, roaches, ticks, ants, and other indoor pests, use 1 – 1.6 oz. per gallon of water.

Fleas: Prior to treatment, carpets and furniture should be vacuumed thoroughly and vacuum cleaner bag discarded in an outdoor trash container. Evenly apply a broadcast spray at a rate of 1 gallon per 800 to 1,600 square feet to infested areas such as crawlspaces, rugs, carpets, pet beds and other pet resting areas. Avoid wetting or soaking. For crawlspace applications, the applicator must wear a respirator recommended by NIOSH for filtering spray mists and organic vapors. When treating upholstered furniture take care to treat between and under cushions. Pay particular attention to areas which are frequented by pets. Old pet bedding should be replaced with clean, fresh bedding after treatment. To control the source of flea infestations, pets inhabiting the treated premises should be treated with a flea-control product registered for application to animals.

General Pest Control Indoors: Apply to cracks and crevices, as a pinstream, as a fine/course, low-pressure spray, spot application or with a paintbrush. Treat where pests are found or normally occur, such as cracks and crevices in walls, in and around kitchen cabinets and drawers (remove all utensils, foodstuffs, shelf paper and other objects before spraying), along baseboards, behind sinks and around plumbing and other utility installations. Ant infested wood may be drilled and injected with Tengard SFR.


For fleas, ticks, ants, mole crickets, chinch bugs, and other insects, 1 ounce will treat 1,000 sq. ft. of lawn (use ample water as needed for coverage).

  • See above for termite treatment details.

Broadcast Treatment for Control of Nuisance Pests: Apply using a 0.5% emulsion as a residual spray to outside surfaces of buildings including, but not limited to, exterior siding, foundations, porches, window frames, eaves, patios, garages, and refuse dumps.

Perimeter Treatment: Apply a band application 6 to 10 feet wide around and adjacent to the structure. Also, treat the base of the structure to a height of 2 to 3 feet. Use a spray volume of 2 to 10 gallons of emulsion per 1,000 sq. ft. If mulch or debris is present, a higher volume application rate may be needed to ensure adequate coverage. Treat the base of the structure to prevent insects from entering the structure.

Companion Animals (Dogs Only): Do not use on dogs under 12 weeks old. Consult a veterinarian before using this product on medicated, debilitated, aged, pregnant or nursing animals. Sensitivities may occur after using any pesticide product on pets. If signs of sensitivity occur, bathe your pet with mild soap and rinse with large amounts of water. If signs continue, consult a veterinarian immediately. Avoid contact with face, eyes, and genitalia. Repeat applications every 2 weeks, if necessary. Mix ¼ fl. oz. to 1 pt. water for low pressure spray. Use 1 to 2 fl. oz. spray per animal. For dip wash, use ¼ fl. oz. to 1.25 gal. water (or 4 fl. oz. to 20 gal. water) and thoroughly wet animal to skin with sponge or rag. Let drip dry.

    5 of 5 stars  This stuff does the job No Need to hire anyone to come out!!
    By Sandra in San Tan Valley Az on 07/17/2010

    This product works GREAT. I bought this 2 years ago and still have some left. A little bit goes a long long way. I spray maybe 3 to 4 times a year. With AZ heat & Monsoons this stuff does the job. I have a neighbor who sprays for a company and he offered to do my yard front and back. I figured ok why not, I will try once and I noticed critters within a week. I pulled out my trusted Tengard and the critters were gone and haven't been back for 3 months. I love this product!!

    5 of 5 stars  Flea and Tick control
    By Dagmar in Blountville, TN on 08/01/2011
    Verified Purchase

    I used the product recently and am happy to say that it really works. This has been a very bad season for fleas and ticks. A CSR recommended this product while I was ordering Precor and I'm glad she told me about it. It is easy to prepare and spray, leaves no aftersmell, residue and any tell tale signs that my home has been sprayed. I could not detect any on the floor, carpet or furniture.

    3 of 5 stars  Tengard
    By Cru in Lafayette, LA on 10/02/2010

    This is a great product...just not great for the problem I am having. I am having issues with some type of biting mite. I have not been able to capture one to positively identify it because I don't see them! I applied Tengard to every area of my home and experienced immediate relief. But three days later the problem was back. I can only surmise that the product does not kill the eggs and when they hatch the problem starts up again. The reason I ordered this product is because of the residual killing ability - it is supposed to last for 90 days. Hopefully after a while the newly hatched mites will be killed by the Tengard as well. I suspect there areas in the upholstery they can "hide"!

    5 of 5 stars  Tengard SFR
    By Rick in Midwest on 09/14/2010

    This is the BIG GUN, a highly effective product but also rather expensive. if you have a pesky pest problem, this is the one to shoot it with. If you're a pro, I'm sure you already know that, but for the average homeowner doing their own general pest control, it's a great product. I use this to control lawn pests like biting ants, chiggers, fleas, etc. and have rarely needed to reapply. I recommend using this when all others have failed, because this one very rarely fails.

    By Jose in Rockville, MD on 04/01/2011

    I'm a Pest control technician and this product with Demand CS does the job on Bed bugs. I also use D.E. dust in the wall voids to help eliminate the problem. Very strong and will kill any insect that comes across it.  Just hope they won't pull this product from the market like they do other great insecticides.

  • 5 of 5 stars  This stuff is great on widows!
    By Jeff in Tustin, Ca on 09/29/2017

    This stuff is great! We bought it especially for brown widow spiders which were invading our property from all sides. We could carefully walk two sides of the house in the evening and routinely count between ten and twenty mature brown widow spiders from knee height and below. One application of this stuff (so far) has eradicated all of them, and it has been about two months so far! We are no longer too concerned about walking through the areas that have been sprayed, but we do still find them in areas we haven't yet sprayed. I know this stuff needs to be re-applied on occasions, but I'm very happy nonetheless!

QIs Tengard SFR really safe to use around cats?
I've read that permethrin is toxic to cats. Is this only if the product is used directly on them? Can they get sick by coming into contact with permethrin after it has dried? My concern is the cats (and dogs) will possibly get some on their paws and lick them, causing them to get sick. I'm also concerned if I spray the grass and they eat it. What is the difference between Tengard SFR and Permethrin SFR?

AMost synthetic pyrethroids can be toxic to cats if they are applied directly to them or if they are allowed to walk on treated areas before they are dry. That being said, most cats do not have an issue being in a home that has been treated with a permethrin (as long as they stay out of the treated area until it is dry). Most treatments are limited to cracks and crevices indoors, limiting a pets exposure. Also, once the product has been diluted with water there is a very minute amount of the actual insecticide that will be available, usually just enough to kill a very tiny insect, not enough to have any effect what so ever on a mammal of any size. Permethrin used to cause a lot of problems when it was diluted with oil because the application would stay wet and available to the animals. In most cases today, the permethrin is diluted with water, which of course dries very quickly. Permethrin products are used in homes with cats everyday across the country.

QDoes Tengard SFR hold up in rain? Also, how often does this product need to be applied?

AYes, Tengard SFR can hold up to rain. It is important to have 24 hours before the application and 24 hours after the application rain free. As for how often Tengard SFR needs to be applied, that will depend on what type of pest you are treating for and where exactly you are treating. Please read the product label for more information.

QShould I use Tengard SFR to treat a large area for ticks and chiggers?
We are looking to get rid of the ticks and chiggers in a 50 acre grassy area. There is going to be a lot of foot traffic and pets in the area. We are starting to develop the land from pasture into a home and work area.

ATengard SFR would be a great choice for your needs. You will want to concentrate on areas where you have dense brush and long/tall growth. It is also helpful to keep grass and brush cut short to eliminate the habitat of ticks and chiggers.

QWhere can we buy Dursban or Thiodan for peach tree borers?
We understand that these are not available for home use and also that Thiodan is sold under another name. What do you have that works as well. We want to spray our trees at the end of August or first of September as this is the time to do this.

AAs long as the peach trees are not already infested with peach tree borers you can use a product that contains permethrin such as Tengard SFR. Unfortunately once the beetles have already infested the bark of a peach tree there are not any viable treatment options. In cases of infestation the general recommendation is to simply protect the surrounding trees with preventative sprays with permethrin products. We do not have any access to Dursban or Thiodan.

QHow much Tengard should I use per gallon of water?
I have a NorthStar 16 gallon, 2.2 GPM, 70 PSI broadcast sprayer. I want to use Tengard to spray my yard (large area) for ants, army worms and other insects.

AFor Lawns, mix 0.4 to 0.8 fluid ounce of Tengard SFR in 4 to 25 gallons of water per 1,000 square feet.Use the higher rate for fast knockdown and increased residual control. Dense or excessive(greater than 3 inches) lawn height and arid conditions may require higher volume application rates. Repeat application if necessary. Application in combination with compatible surfactants or wetting agents may enhance penetration.

QHow long does it take for Tengard to kill scabies mites and lice?


Tengard SFR is not labeled for lice and is only labeled to treat scabies mites on livestock.  Scabies mites and lice live on/in the skin and hair and we do not carry anything to treat humans. Most folks need to visit their doctor to receive the medication needed to get rid of these pests. You may spray your furniture with a product such as Steri-fab to kill anything there, though treating the home is usually not necessary.

QCanTengard SFR Termiticide and Insecticide be used for Pine Bark Beetles?
They have bored into some of my trees. Would spraying the tree be the right application?


Unfortunately there is no easy solution when it comes to pine beetles/borers. Infected trees should be cut down (before the newly hatched beetles fly out of the trees in the spring/summer) and the wood burned or chipped, while other still healthy trees should be sprayed annually to protect them. Because of the natural boring behavior of the beetle they are protected from topically applied insecticides and systemic insecticides (those injected into the tree or applied as a root drench) have proven ineffective for pine beetle infestations. Healthy trees can be protected before the beetles attack by topically spraying them with a product like Tengard SFR Termiticide and Insecticide or Bifen XTS. The tree should be sprayed from the ground to 15 ft up the trunk to prevent future infestations. You should contact your local cooperative extension office to find out the best time to start spraying in your region.

QI have a Valley Oak, will Tengard SFR Termiticide and Insecticide treat the Wooly Aphids that live on the leaves?
The spray service has been using a soak but it has not been too effective at controlling them. They sprayed 3 times last year.


Before applying insecticide, make sure plants are receiving appropriate cultural care and take steps to conserve natural enemies. Tengard SFR Termiticide and Insecticide is labeled for Aphids. Where trees can be sprayed, completely covering shoot terminals and the undersides of leaves is recommended. Treating with at contact spray like Bonide Horticultural Oil or Bonide Pyrethrin Garden Insect Spray can be effective. Adonis 2F would be a great product for systemic control to be absorbed up into the tree by the root system.
