Active Ingredient: Deltamethrin - 0.10%
The new, improved formulation for DELTAGARD® G Insecticide with DeltaGard delivers the strength of DeltaGard brand deltamethrin in a new water-dispersible carrier to provide quick knockdown and lasting control of ants and other crawling insects. Its smaller granule size enables easier calibration and spreading, and provides better coverage. In fact, its granules fall through vegetative cover and heavy mulch to effectively treat hard-to-reach areas where pests may be foraging, trailing, or nesting.
DeltaGard G does not have the potential to stain concrete or damage plants. And it even resists particle damage until water is added. Its cost-effective low application rate protects up to 10,000 square feet with a single 20-pound bag. The formulation has virtually no odor after application, and is available in new resealable plastic bags.
Delta Gard has the same active ingredient as Suspend SC insecticide, but in a granular form.
DeltaGard G Granules can be used as a perimeter barrier or as a broadcast treatment over your entire yard and landscaped areas. We recommend using DeltaGard Granules with an Earthway spreader. One 20 lb. bag covers up to 10,000 square feet. Always read the label.
Tips for Use:
- DELTAGARD G can be applied to home lawns for general lawn surface feeding insect pests and for perimeter pests. The rate is 2 to 3 pounds per 1,000 square feet. Granules can be applied with conventional spreaders or equivalent equipment, such as shaker cans.
- For lawn applications, optimum results are achieved when the granules are watered into the turf.
- For perimeter applications, treat a band 5 to 10 feet wide around and adjacent to the building.
- For ant mounds and nests and digger wasp ground nests, sprinkle 1 to 2 teaspoons over the nest.
- Red imported fire ant mounds can be treated with up to 1 teaspoon over each mound, and up to 2 feet around each mound. One gallon of water lightly sprinkled over the mound will dissolve the granules and improve control.

Product really works
By Walter in New Orleans, La. on 05/17/2009
I used DeltaGard G Granules when I returned home after evacuating from New Orleans due to Hurricane Katrina. It was truly amazing how quickly and effectively the granules eliminated the flea, tick, and cockroach infestation that overwhelmed this entire area. I strongly recommend this product to any consumer seeking to make your living area and grounds safer and more healthy for you and your pets. I continue to use it periodically with outstanding results.

DeltaGard G Granules
By Janice in Buckeye, AZ on 08/09/2010
I bought my first order last year. Had an influx of scorpions and got on line to DoMyOwnPestControl. They had videos on how to use the products that they sold and what they would do. Armed with that much needed information, I ordered the products that I used got rid of 99% of the horrible little scorpions, and had a few show up this year so I reordered. It worked. What more can you ask from a company or a product? I will order again in the future.

Great Product !!
By Roland in The Villages, Lady Lake,FL on 07/27/2011
I have been using DeltaGard for the past 4-5 years. It was recomended by a pest control tech. (I won't name). In Florida bugs are everywhere and get into your house through every crack. Since using DeltaGard I have had NO bugs. I have also spread it around my neighbor's house and she also no longer has any kinds of bugs getting into her house. won't use anything else. A Great and effective product that does what it says it will.

Gets the job done
By Will in San Antonio, TX on 06/09/2011
I have been using this stuff ever since I cancelled Terminix over a year ago and it works great. This saves me a ton of money versus paying someone to do it for me.
Atomic Bug Bomb!
By Cynthie in Corpus Christi, Texas on 12/01/2015
Love this stuff! Previously, 2 months (or less) after my quarterly pest control service, the roaches would start reappearing. And they would be quite alive. I tried two different companies to no avail. Eventually, I cancelled the service and did it myself. After using this, it took a day or two and there was roach carnage everywhere. Since then, not one roach! I live on the coast -- notorious for roach problems. It's been over 3 months. It's my new bug-killing best friend.
doesn't seem to finish the job
By Becky in Rusk, TX on 11/12/2015
Better than any product we've tried so far on TX leaf cutter ants, but so far, it only seems to deter them, maybe kills a few, but mostly just makes them move. Unless the product is used once a week, they return in force. We have been using it 5 months & still have ants. Very disheartening.
DeltaGard G Granules - 20 lb.
By Tim in Uvalde. Texas on 10/05/2015
I have used it three times so far and it seems to be working very well. Have not seen any life from the mounds I have treated thus far. The hard part is finding the nest in the first place. Wish they would carry the bait to their nests but I know that is not in their nature.
By Big in NEW ORLEANS,Louisiana on 11/16/2014
Works just as great as talstar granules ,Exceptional product ! Would highly recommend ! killed all the insects!!!
delta guard g
By John in LaVernia tx on 09/25/2014
does not work, they (ants) like it...... we have used this for months, thinking it would eventually work, but to no avail, so we end up using Rain ant killer, which works on exposed ants but others keep coming back.....
While Delta Guard Granules will knockdown ants that come into contact with the insecticide, it will not transfer throughout the colony the way that baits or non-repellent sprays will, so it is likely you will need to reapply. You could use a granular bait such as Maxforce Complete: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/maxforce-complete-granular-bait-p-1603.html, or a non-repellent spray around the foundation such as Termidor SC: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/termidor-sc-p-184.html

I've used deltamethrin frequently for spraying indoors and its very effective. DeltaGard G Granules are easy to use with a hand spreader around the perimeter of a home. Great results so far as expected!

DeltaGard G granules
By Reg in Goodyear, AZ on 02/22/2014
Easily distributed with broadcast style seed spreader and waters in quickly. Seems to have great control of virtually everything. I use this along with spraying Cykick CS on the lower foundation as a barrier around our home which eliminates the need to do anything inside the house.
By Jon in Bakersfield Ca on 11/28/2013
Great price, fast free shipping and product is reliable. I've used this before and results are always good. I use it mainly for the ticks in the yard, but also kills the other listed bugs. Thank you Do My Own Pest Control. You're my go to company for my pest control needs.

QHow long do we need to wait before the dogs can go back to the treated area after applying DeltaGard G Granules?
A Pets are permitted back in the treated area immediately after application. DeltaGard G Granules are a pet and children safe product when applied correctly because it is broadcast over lawn and garden areas and is applied in a small quantity.

QWhat do you recommend for leaf cutter ants?
ALeaf cutter ants can be a difficult pest to get rid of. The colonies are large and the ants make their own food so poison baits only have limited effects on this species of ants. According to several university websites Maxforce Complete Bait Granules containing hydramethylnon are some what effective, though they will usually eliminate only about 30% of a large colony in one treatment and will need to be reapplied several times. Deltagard granules is one of the only products actually labeled for leaf cutter ants. The product label recommends treating the mound directly and lightly watering the granules in. Again it may take several treatments to get the desired results. We also recommend contacting your local cooperative extension office to see if they have any recommendations for products that have worked for other people in your region.
QI live in Lancaster, Pa. We have a problem with cockroaches. They are referred to as Asian water bugs.
Will DeltaGard G Granules take care of my problem with the cockroaches in my yard, around my patio, deck and in the mulch? Will all of the products in this category work on the roaches. Most of the reviews seem to be re: ants...
ADeltaGard G Granules is labeled for roaches and should work fine for controlling them. You would want to apply every 2 to 3 months and make sure you water in the granules for faster results once you apply it. You can also apply before a rain event instead of watering the granules in yourself.

QAre Deltagard G granules effective for a scorpion problem?
I have read on many forums that people combine cy-kick with delta granules for a scorpion problem. Do the granules work well?
AWhile Deltagard granules are not labeled to kill scorpions directly the product will help get rid of many other insects which the scorpions use as their food source. When the other insects are gone the scorpions will naturally find your property less favorable and will move on to better hunting grounds or face starvation. Cy-Kick CS on the other hand should be used as a barrier spray around your home and any scorpion that ventures onto the treated area will be killed. By using these two products together you will be putting together a strong scorpion control program. Controlling scorpions will require a combination of both chemical and non-chemical measures. Please take a few minutes to read our article Scorpion Control to learn more ways to make your property less favorable to scorpions.

QIs Delta Guard a Bait for roaches?
ADeltaGard is not a bait, it is an insecticide granule that is broadcast outside and then watered in. DeltaGard is labeled to help control roaches that cross over areas that have been treated with the product. If you are looking for a bait granule for roaches you can use Advion Insect Granule Bait, Maxforce XComplete Granular Bait or Intice Fine Granular Bait.

QWill DeltaGard G Granules kill scorpions, crickets, black widow and cockroaches?
I have all of the sudden had a problem with crickets, scorpions, black widows and cockroaches.
A DeltaGard G Granules are labeled for eradicating crickets, spiders, cockroaches and many other listed insects. We recommend that you apply Onslaught FastCap for a broader spectrum of insects including scorpions.

QI applied Deltagard G and now I have tons of ants and anthills. Does this drive them out of the ground?
AIf the area you applied DeltaGard G Granules - 20 lb. bag disturbed the hills, then you could see more activity. it can take 21 plus days to start to gain control.

QHow to address digger bees? Our entire yard, about an acre, is infested with digger bees....thousands of holes. It has become a safety issue for kids and dogs. Any recommendations for a granular product for a large area?
AIt sounds like they could possibly be Cicada Killers. To treat Cicada Killers, you can discourage the wasps from nesting in your yard by cutting your grass on the highest setting and by adding a thick layer of mulch to flower beds during the Cicada Killer Wasp season. These wasps do not like over saturated lawns either, so over watering during their season will help prevent them. Unfortunately, there is no fool proof way to prevent cicada killer wasps. Cicada Killer wasps thrive in disturbed environments, such as landscaped yards and places where bare soil is exposed. For prevention, you can try to use a granular insecticide such as Talstar PL Granules in the couple of weeks before this pest is known to emerge. For current infestations, you would need to use Delta dust in each individual burrow.

QI live in Virginia with lots of Harvester Ant mounds. How effective is DeltaGard against Harvester Ants?
ADeltaGard is effective against Harvester ants if you can locate and treat the nest directly. Be sure to use at least 2 teaspoons per mound and water in.

QFor carpenter ants, do you need to apply around the house perimeter during the winter months?
If not, what months should you start re-applying?
ADeltaGard G Granules should be applied when the ants appear. If you are not seeing the ants throughout the winter months, it is not necessary to put the product down.

I live in the eastern portion of MA. and was curious if this product will rid my lawn of grubs?
ADeltaGuard G is not labeled for grubs. We carry three granule products that are labeled for grubs, Dylox 6.2, Merit Granules and Demand G. Dylox 6.2 is known to be one of the fastest acting granule products for grub control. You may find our article on grub control helpful.

QShould I apply DeltaGard G Granules or Cy-kick CS first?
I will be using DeltaGard G Granules and Cy-Kick CS for scorpion control around my home. Should I apply the Cy-Kick first and let is dry before adding the Granules or should I spread the Granules first then spray Cy-Kick? I plan on using a hose sprayer for the Cy-Kick.

QWhat is best spider and mosquito killer?
I habe 10,000 sq ft yard - swimming pool but no other standing water - lots of spiders in pool in summer, jumping spiders etc can't enjoy a lie on a raft what kills them and large mosquito population as we live backed up to wooded area - what is best a. granular and b. liquid type applications to kill both these insects?
ADeltaGuard G Granules would be a great choice for outdoor perimeter or broadcast applications to control spiders along with many other insects. Also, Talstar P is the premier liquid concentrate for mosquito control. You would simply mix 1 oz of Talstar P per gallon of water and spray bushes, shrubs, and low lying tree branches paying close attention to the underside of the leaves. Both the DelatGuard G and Talstar P would be a great product to use in the areas you specified. Your are not spraying the water directly and only spraying around the plants, cracks and crevices. Run Off is not an issue as long the treated area is allowed to dry before rain. Such a small amount of active ingredient is left after dilution. Only enough to harm small insects. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
