What is the difference between bifenthrin and Bifenazate?

I'm trying to figure out which products I should use in rotation for spider mites. What is the difference between Bifenthrin and Bifenazate? Are they safe to use in a pesticide rotation one after the other or are they basically the same?


Bifenthrin and Bifenazate are used to treat different types of insects. Bifenthrin is mainly for general pest control use and is an ingredient in products such as Talstar P and Bifen IT.  Bifenazate is a type of miticide and is an ingredient in products such as Floramite SC and Sirocco Miticide. We would not recommend rotating these two products for mite control. Bifenazate is a good active ingredient for spider mites, as well as Abamectin, which is the active ingredient in Avid 0.15 EC.
