    Q
    Is Bifen Granules harmful to children?
    If I put this on my lawn will this be harmful if my children play outside?
    A
    Bifen Granules are a pet and children safe product when applied correctly because it is broadcast over lawn in small quantities. Please be sure to follow the product label for proper application.

    Q
    What number do I use for a Scotts Speedy Green rotary spreader for application of Bifen Granules?
    A

    We don't have the exact spreader setting for your model spreader. The easiest way to determine the correct setting to apply Bifen Granules is as follows:

    If you need to use 3lbs of product per 1,000 sq ft you would add 3 lb of product to spreader, start with a medium setting, then apply product to a 20 x 50 ft area (1,000 sq ft).  If you have product left, your setting is too low.  If you run out of product, your setting is too high

    Q
    Will a large amount of rainfall decrease effectiveness of the Bifen Granules?
    I put down a 10 foot wide barrier of Bifen granules in the lawn around our house to keep carpenter ants from entering. I planned to take advantage of natural rainfall to water the granules into the lawn. Unfortunately, what was forecast to be rain showers turned out to be 4 inches of rain as measured in our rain gauge. I don't think the water actually ran off and took the insecticide with it. However, will just the large amount of rainfall decrease its effectiveness in the soil? Should I apply another treatment?
    A
    A large amount of rain fall should not take away the effectiveness of Bifen Granules. especially if there was no run off. You would want to reapply in 2 months time.

    Q
    I believe I have springtails in my home. They are very small, pale or black. How can I get rid of spring tails?
    Tried to kill the bugs. They are around almost all of the windows in my home. I also find them on the air conditioners. Several websites mention Bifen granules to kill them. Is there an effective spray that I can use to kill them? It must be something strong. I have already tried bleach and some pest control sprays that I found at Home Depot. Please let me know if you can help.
    A

    Spring tails can be tough to eliminate because they reproduce very quickly. In almost every case where people have spring tails, they also have a moisture problem such as a leaking or sweating pipe, poor ventilation in their crawl space, lots of wet mulch right up next to their house, etc. You must locate and correct the moisture problem to get rid of the spring tails, insecticides alone will not do the job. We do carry Bifen L/P granules and Bifen IT liquid, both of which can help you to reduce the numbers of springtails.

    Q
    Will DeltaGard G Granules kill Harvest Mite Larvae (chiggers) in my yard?
    What is the appropriate schedule to apply the treatment to kill chiggers? Also I have a raised ornamental fish pond which is on a patio about 6 feet away from the lawn. Would Bifen Granules be safe for my fish if the granules do not come in contact with the water?
    A
    Bifen granules are not labeled to treat chiggers. The only granule we carry that has chiggers on the label is DeltaGard G Granules.  DeltaGard G Granules come in a 20 lb bag and treatment for chiggers requires 2-3lbs per 1000 square feet.  However, any type of insecticide, liquid or granule, is very toxic to fish.  We would not recommend applying any type of product near a fish pond.  Even run off from the surface where you apply a product can be extremely deadly to fish.

    Q
    Will this product kill little geckos or lizzards? I don't want to hurt the little guys.
    A
    Bifen Granules will not kill geckos or lizards. This product will kill the insects that the geckos and lizards eat, therefore the geckos and lizards may go find food elsewhere.

    Q
    Bigheaded ants: Need advice as how to treat and which product you have.
    A
    Insecticide granules such as Bifen granules would be a good choice to help control the population of big headed ants as it will last for 3-4 months. Bifen Granules will kill ants that venture on to treated areas.  Another great choice would be to use Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait. This bait is also labeled for big headed ants specifically and would be a great choice for your use. Extinguish Plus combines the power of hydramethylnon with an insect growth regulator (like birth control for ants) to kill big headed ant workers and prevent queens from laying fertile eggs. This product would kill the ants that picked up the bait and also kill the ants back at the colony

    Q
    Can I use Bifen Granules if I have a dug well?
    My drinking water comes from a dug well and I would like to know if it is safe to use the Bifen Granules
    A
    The product label for Bifen Granules does not say anything about use near a well, but we would suggest not applying granules within 20 feet of the well just to be safe.  Also, if your land slopes towards the well you should not apply granules on the slope in case a hard rain causes the granules to move with the water towards the well.

    Q
    I am currently treating for roaches. Do I need additional products besides Bifen Granules?
    I am currently treating inside my home with fumigation. Bifen Granules are being used around the perimeter of my home, but we still have lot of roaches inside the home, even after I have fumigated. Do I need to open every electrical outlet and put powder pesticide inside?
    A

    We recommend to continue using the Bifen L/P Granules for outdoors to protect your lawn from a broad range of insects. We do recommend treating in your wall voids and behind your outlets with an insecticide dust that will leave a long residual such as Delta Dust. It is water resistant and will last up to 7 months. To do a complete treatment we recommend our Roach Control Kit Rotation A. This kit comes with several products that should be used together to eliminate roach infestations.

    If you have any other question in regards to roach control, please review Cockroach Treatment Guide

    Q
    Can Bifen L/P granules be used to control mosquitoes and mosquito larvae?
    A
    No, Bifen LP would not be effective for mosquito control. The adult mosquitoes actually hang out in trees and bushes and the larva develop in standing water. Bifen LP granules can only be used to treat lawns and soil for insect infestation. You can use Bifen IT which is the liquid formulation of Bifen to treat for adult mosquitoes. Mosquito larva can be eliminated with BTI Mosquito Dunks which can be placed directly into water sources such as ponds, unused pools and other areas of standing water.

    Q
    Will the Bifen Granules treat springtails in the whole lawn?
    Will my lawn be safe for kids to run and play on couple days after the application?
    A
    Bifen Granules recently had a product label change and the new label no longer lists springtails as a target pest. We recommend Demand G Granules to control springtails and they can be used as a perimeter application or over your entire lawn. Children can safely return to the treated area after it is completely dry.

    Q
    Does Bifen Granules kill chiggers
    A
    Onslaught is a great product for chigger control. Treatments for chiggers should begin in April/May and could need to continue through the summer as new chiggers move into the area. Treating the entire lawn is of little benefit because chiggers avoid direct sunlight and normally will not infest areas that are mowed or otherwise well maintained. Focus treatment on the unkempt areas of the lawn and lawn edge. You can also use Onslaught to do a barrier treatment around the outside of your home and in your crawl space to stop pests from moving indoors.

    Q
    Do Bifenthrin Granules help with German roaches?
    A
    Bifenthrin granules can help stop German roaches that are outside from reaching your home. The granules will not help with an existing roach infestation. We recommend you use our Roach Control Kit #2 if you have an existing roach infestation indoors.

    Q
    Does using Bifen with other products a pest control uses on my lawn counteract their treatment?
    I have a service come every couple of months and they have concerns that my treating will make their treatments null because I'm using Bifen.
    A
    We need more information in order to answer your question. Do you know what the product your services uses? That would be the best way to determine if it will counteract with Bifen Granules.

    Q
    Can you use Bifen Granules in your home, and if so what do you use to apply it indoors?
    I have ordered from your company several times, due to my ongoing problem with Springtails. I would like to get rid of them once, and for all so I am considering ordering Bifen Granules. My question is can you use this product in your home, and if so what do you use to apply it indoors? Please answer ASAP, because it has been over a month that I been dealing these horrible creatures! :(
    A
    Bifen granules can not be used indoors as this is a product designed to be watered in after placed down, and this application would not work indoors. You would need the Bifen IT, the concentrate version of the Bifen Granules that can be used indoors and outdoors. You would spray the Bifen inside around baseboards, cracks, crevices, windows and door frames and around plumbing pipes. You would also spray about 2-3 feet up the side of your foundation of your home and 2-3 feet out on the ground, and then create a barrier across the lawn with the Bifen granules. You will need to find the areas in and around your home where there seems to be a moisture issue. Please refer to our How To Get Rid Of Springtails article to see proper treatment methods for the pest and where to look for sources of the nesting site.
