Another great product from Domyownpestcontrol.com
By C. in Batavia, IL on July 27, 2011
Bought four bottles of this stuff to control ants, mosquitos, and japanese beetles. 2oz. in a 2 gallon sprayer and presto! No more bugs. Some of the best stuff I ever bought. About to mix up a batch for the hose end sprayer to do my trees and shrubs. VERY confident it'll take down most anything that it comes into contact with. May seem expensive at first, but the premeasure cup takes the guesswork out of the picture and I'll probably have enough for 2-3 years. Try finding something that works so well in ANY store and not only will you be disappointed, but will get something that probably contains less than 0.5% of what this stuff has. I buy ALL my pest control products from Domyownpestcontrol.com and have NEVER been disappointed with any of their products. Highly recommended.

Bifent XTS review.
By B. in dixons mills al. on September 13, 2010
Container makes it easy to accurately measure out the needed amount. The data sheet if fairly easy to follow and this takes the guess work out of the calculating gallons per area of coverage. I used the product for June Bug grubs and it did the job.

I live in NM. I purchased the "Bifen XTS" in January. We had a warm Saturday so I mixed and sprayed. Even with the cold weather there were dead roaches the next days. We had 2 weeks of extreme cold weather and snow. Once it started to warm up in the 50 plus temps the roaches were coming out and dropping dead. It continued to stay strong after going through the cold and snow. Good chemical, Irecommend it.

I purchased Bifen XTS to replace my overpriced local extermination company. They asked over $900 for a five year retreatment plus a $125 a year membership fee and $90 per visit fee four times a year. If this product performs as advertised, I will be hundreds of dollars ahead in no time. After spraying the outside perimeter of my home, I sprayed several Fire Ant mounds. After making my rounds I checked each mound to find that it destroyed the ants completely. I have not seen any new mounds in two weeks. My faith is growing for Bifen XTS.

Used primarily to control earwings, also takes out lots of other pests since it's broad spectrum. I didn't realize how annoying the crickets climbing up the walls into the under eves were until they were gone. Mixed at maximum label (.12%) to knock down a continuing outdoor Earwig population. The local bifenthin concentrations start at .3% undiluted and you have to mix down from there and would knock out the living population but degrade as more hatched. The XTS oil based seemed like a more durable solution and it's labeled for a higher concentration that seems to be really put the hurt on multiple generations on a single application. Plan on repeating in a few weeks to re-enforce the application, putting an end to this mutli-year problem inherited from prior occupants. Also have Bifen IT water based for indoor and wood to prevent possible staining. PLEASE DO NOT USE ON YOUR FLOWERING PLANTS, this stuff will annihilate your pollinators and the bees have enough things to deal with without chemical warfare.
By Art in Cape Coral,FL on March 5, 2015
Have used this product in the past w/ excellent results which is why I purchased it again. Price was very reasonable and delivery was fast and FREE!
This kills what I want it to.
By AL in Baltimore Md on November 21, 2014
I have always used the more diluted Bifen and it works as expected, so to use the more concentrated Bifen XTS is the same to me just a different mix. I like the product.

Economical solution to common pest problem
By Bud in Clermont FL on November 18, 2014
This product has worked well for me here in FL. It does have a pretty strong odor when applied so I do not use it indoors. Best for perimeter spraying and targeting bugs outdoors. Do not leave mixed solution in a sprayer as it will gum up the nozzle. Mix and use only what you are going to use immediately. Clean sprayer completely after use.
Bifen XTS for Fire Ants
By Gary in Shreveport, LA on November 13, 2014
I bought this for fire ant control. It is November so it is the wrong time of year for a thorough test of long term control. I have used it on mounds for spot control and it works very well. My hope is that it will work around perimeter of home and on lawn for long term control and prevention. Next Spring will be the real test.
By Jim in Spring Branch, Texas on October 20, 2014
Used this before and it works great. Will absolutely order again.
So Far So Good
By Truman in Nacogdoches, Texas 75964 on October 16, 2014
Since the banned product "Mirex" was removed from the market, I have been very dissatisfied with almost everything I tried on "Fire Ants". This product seems to be working better than anything I have tried in a long tome. After I've used it for a year I'll know better.

By Robert in Montgomery, Al on September 16, 2014
I began in May treating my lawn for sod web worms using a pesticide from a big box garden center. I sprayed the lawn area twice and at 6 week intervals, not the 3 month interval as listed on the package. In late August the brown circular areas of the dead grass eaten by sod web worms started appearing. That is when I decided to "Go Pro" and began using Bifen XTS. I took my time applied liberally and wore protective clothing as recommended. Even though it is too late in the season to prevent the damage done, I will continue to use Bifen XTS as my 'go to' pesticide in the future.

Bifen xts works as indicated even with heavy rainfalls after application it works I still reapplied to areas near the house and the gardens to ensure good coverage The knock down power is not there at first but as it stated use a different product you recommended for the knock down and continue with the bifen xts. Areas that I did not spray the bifen you could not work near the mosquitos were just plain nasty and unbearable even with deet 100 %So yes I will buy this again and also get the knock down additive at the same time. Great product.

I ordered this product from DoMyOwnPestControl (DMOPC) because I thought it was the best deal for the Bifen XTS that I had seen so far. I was actually impressed when I received a call from DMOPC because the address I submitted on my order, even though it was correct, did not show up as a valid address in the system DMOPC was using. This indicated to me that DMOPC was very concerned about insuring proper delivery to the customer rather that simply shipping to an address that possibly could have been a typing error. At A Boy DMOPC. I received my product as advertised and in a very timely manner. The product, if you've ever used it, speaks for itself. The service I received from DMOPC speaks for the professionalism of the people at DMOPC and allowed me to quickly determine that I will use DMOPC's services again in the future. I have already recommended DMOPC to several people for their pest control needs and as long as DMOPC keeps pricing below the competitors and servicing the customer as they did with me, I will continue to recommend them to others.

May 23, 2010 Bobby asked:
QWhat is the difference between Bifen XTS and Bifen IT?
I want to use this in a backpack mister/blower for mosquitoes. Will one work better than the other? Also how does this compare to Permethrin SFR?
ABifen I/T is our most popular choice for mosquito control. The Bifen XTS is the same product, just in a higher concentration. For mosquito control you do not need the higher concentration, it is not necessary. Bifen I/T would also be a better solution then permethrin because permethrin breaks down quicker in sunlight and the Bifen I/T only needs to be applied every 30 days whereas permethrin would need to be applied every two weeks. The most important thing to remember when treating for mosquitoes is that they hang out on the underside of leaves and shrubs. You should treat all shrubs, bushes and trees around the outside patio or wherever you hang out at around the house. You should also treat the tree line in your yard near the forest if one exists. Remember to not only treat the main bush or shrub but also the underside of the leaves.
July 6, 2010 Mike asked:
QWill Bifen XTS harm pets?
ANo. Bifen XTS will not harm pets when used as directed on the product label. All pets and people (except for the applicator) should be out of the area while the application is being made, and they can return as soon as the treated area is dry.

Adam from Brasnon, Mo asked:
QWhat is the residual time of Bifen XTS & how long will it keep bugs away when sprayed?
ABifen XTS will have a residual of about 4-8 weeks depending on rain and UV rays in the given area. Bifen XTS will not repel insects but instead will kill them within 24 hours of contact.
April 29, 2011 Rob asked:
QHow much Bifen XTS would you use in a 60 gallon spray unit?
AThe proper dilution rate of Bifen XTS is .32 of an ounce per gallon of water. This works out to be about 19 ounces for 60 gallons of water, or a little more than 1/2 of a quart bottle.
August 14, 2010 Neil asked:
QWill rain after an application of Bifen XTS reduce the effectiveness of the product?
I applied it to my yard. About 45 minutes after I finished the application, it rained(moderate to light) for about an hour. Also, how long does it take to see results. I have a flea problem, and I am trying to eliminate them.
ATypically, Bifen XTS as well as many other liquid insecticides only need about 30 minutes to dry. Once dry, they can hold up to rain rather well. However, it is much easier for the product to bond to porous surfaces like concrete and siding then grass and your lawn. You may want to apply again just to be safe when there is not rain in the forecast for at least 24 hours. Typically, for fleas it can take a week or two to see results. You should treat every 14 days for fleas. It usually takes at least 2 to 3 treatments since Bifen XTS or any other product will kill the eggs. You need to treat every 14 days, 2 to 3 times, so you make sure the product is strong enough to kill the hatched eggs every 2 weeks.

Glenn from Camp Nelson Ca asked:
QWill Bifen kill and prevent western bark beetles in large pine trees? What is the best mixture?
A Unfortunately, there is no easy solution when it comes to pine beetles. 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 synthetic pyrethroid like Bifen IT. You will mix one ounce per gallon of water. 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.
December 3, 2014 Shirley asked:
QI have chiggers and want to know when and how often to spray for them.
I live in the bay area of No. Calif. and last summer I was bitten terribly by these things. How do I find where they are breeding?
Bifen XTS is labeled for chiggers. You will use 1/6 fl. oz. per gallon of water. This can be used every 30 days outdoors. Chiggers normally prefer moist habitats such as swamps and bogs, rotten logs and stumps.

Ed from Augusta Ga asked:
QDoes Bifen XTS kill scorpions?
Bifen XTS is labeled to treat for Scorpions outside the perimeter of the home. Mix 1/6 fl oz -1/3 fl oz with 1 gallon of water, apply to a 10 foot wide band of soil andvegetation around and next to the structure, and treat the foundation of the structure to a height of 2 to 3 feet. Use a spray volume of 2 to 10 gallons of dilution per 1000 sq. ft. Trim back any bushes, shrubs or trees so they are touching the side of the house. This will limit the insects access to the house from ground only where they will come into contact with the active ingredient, Bifenthrin.

Richard from Texas asked:
QDoes Bifen XTS kill fleas and ticks, and is it okay for cats and dogs?
A Yes, Bifen XTS is only labeled for outdoor treatments for fleas and ticks. We would recommend removing the cats and dogs out of the area while you are treating. Once Bifen XTS is dry, it is safe for the pets to return to the area. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Humberto from Miami Fl asked:
QWhat is the right amount of Bifen XTS to use for Ticks?
I'm using a 4 gal back pack sprayer for the lawn, and building surrounding. Also whant to know if i can use the product with a water hose end sprayer.
Bifen XTS as an outside perimeter and lawn treament, the label recommends using: For a 0.03% dilution mix 1/6 fl. oz. / 1 gal. water(1 fluid oz. = 2 tablespoons) For a 0.06% dilution mix 1/3 fl. oz. / 1 gal. water(1 fluid oz. = 2 tablespoons)

Skye from New Orleans asked:
QIs Bifen XTS product odorless or does it have a strong smell?

Susan from Jacksonville, Fl asked:
QHow soon after application Bifen XTS can dogs be allowed in the yard?
We have two small dogs as pets. We let them out in the yard 3 or 4 times a day to play around. Should they be kept out of the yard after applying Bifen XTS and if so how long?
Please wait at least 2 hours or until the Bifen XTS treated area has dried. After completely dried it is safe for people and pets to be around.

Donald from California asked:
QTalstar comment questions and concerns
I read two comments that concern me. One is that Bifen is not as versatile as Talstar and that Talstar doesn't seem to break down in the desert heat. Bifen XTS is obviously more potent than Talstar so how could this be? Aside from active ingredients are these two not basically the same?
A There are only a few similarities between Bifen XTS and Talstar P. They both contain the same active ingredient Bifenthrin, treat over 75 types of insects, and both work as a repellent. Bifen XTS is oil based meaning it is only to be used outside the home because it holds up better in the elements. Bifen XTS is water resistant and can withstand UV Rays for 4-8 weeks outside. Talstar P is water based meaning it can be used indoors and outdoors. Inside Talstar P is used as a crack and crevice treatment and will leave a 90 day residual. Outside the home TalstarP can be used as ant mound treatments, as a broadcast spray over the entire yard, or as a perimeter treatment up against the structure.

Danny from Okc Ok 73109 asked:
QHow long does Bifen XTS take to kill roaches?
Bifen XTS will kill with minutes to hours depending the size of the roach. We typically do not recommend using Bifen XTS for roaches. We recommend using one of our Roach Control Kits.
