I used DemonMax for ticks in my house - cracks, floorboards, etc. why am I still seeing tiny ticks!

I used 1oz for a gallon of water and added a growth regulator. I sprayed every room after vacuuming and carpet cleaning. I washed my dogs with a tick shampoo and I sprayed my couch as well....why are they still here? Will this product work?

Answer:

How long it takes the ticks to die after they come into contact with a treated area will depend on a number of factors. It will depend on the maturity of the tick as well as how long they stayed on the treated area, how long it has been since the area was treated and the concentration that was used to treat the area. Demon Max is a great product for tick control - and you used the correct dosage. Typically it can take anywhere from a couple of hours to a day or so for them to die. It can take several weeks for you to stop seeing ticks indoors because the ticks like to stay hidden which also means they could be staying out of treated areas and eggs may hatch out prolonging the infestation. We recommend doing follow up treatments every two weeks at the highest usage rate of 1 oz of product per gallon of water until you do not see any ticks.
