David writes,

Can you combine ExciteR with Temprid?

Can ExciteR be added to Temprid? The reason I'm asking is since imidacloprid is a non-repellant, will adding more pyrethrins reduce its effectiveness? I'm actually curious as to how Bayer was able to combine a pyrethroid and a non-repellant in the 1st place.


Yes, you can combine ExciteR with Temprid SC.  ExciteR is merely a "hot" additive that packs a punch and kills insects rather quickly for a short period of time but it does not leave a long term residual.  Since the other products in Temprid do leave a long term residual but do not really pack an initial punch, it is often recommended to add a product like ExciteR for a faster knockdown.  As far as your comment about combining Imidacloprid with Cyfluthrin, the manufacturer did not combine these two together expecting them to be used as a non-repellent and have insects pass the product on.  They combined the two solely based on how they effect the insect and their long term ability to leave a long term residual.  Temprid is not used as a non-repellent product and so it is ok to mix the products.
