    Q
    Is there anything stronger than Demand CS for spider control?
    I've been treating with Demand CS for years and have been generally happy with the results but this summer in particular, I've been having a rough time with some big spiders and I'm looking for something stronger. What is your recommendation?
    A
    Demand CS is a pretty hardy product but if you are spraying porous surfaces it may be getting absorbed and in general may be less available to the intruding spiders. Demon WP is our most popular spider control product. Demon WP is a wettable powder insecticide that will stay on the surface of porous areas and may be easier for the spiders to contact. Be sure you are spraying outside around the foundation of your home, around door frames, window frames and any place where the spiders may gain entry indoors to stop these pests before they get inside.

    Q
    Can you spray Demand CS with out a protection mask?
    A
    You can use Demand CS without a mask if you are using it in well ventilated areas or outside. If you are using the product in an area where ventilation is a problem then a mask would be required.

    Q
    Is Demand CS poisonous to horses?
    We have a stink bug problem and want to try Demand CS around our house. Is it also safe to use around our barn where the horses are?
    A
    Demand CS is labeled to be used in barns and other animal housing structures but the animals must be out of the area while the application is being made and they can return to the area once it is dried. Demand CS should only be used in cracks and crevices and care should be taken to make sure over-spray does not contact feed and water supplies or feed/watering dishes. Be sure to read the Demand CS product label for complete application instructions.

    Q
    What pesticide is best for cluster flies outdoors?
    Have extreme amount of cluster flies behind the siding of my house. This is the second year in a row this has happened.
    A

    Demand CS would be a great choice. It is labeled for Cluster Flies and besides using it around the perimeter of your home, you should apply it around window frames, door frames and other entry points where Cluster Flies gather. Please be sure to follow the label instructions.

    Q
    Will Demand CS kill carpenter ants?
    A

    Yes, Demand CS will kill carpenter ants that come in contact with a treated surface. It is micro-encapsulated, so it works like a time released formula. For carpenter ant control specifically, we would recommend our Indoor Carpenter Ant Kit. The kit contains professional pest control products to control carpenter ants found inside structures, including two baits that contain different formulations and active ingredients to increase bait acceptance and efficacy. To control carpenter ants around the exterior of your home, Taurus SC will do the trick. You would mix 0.8 fl. oz. of Taurus SC per gallon of water and apply using a hand-pump sprayer around the outside of the home, spraying 1 foot up the side of the house and 1 foot out from the house, all the way around the home. †

    Q
    Can I use Demand CS in Canada on private property without a license?
    A
    Unfortunately, we are not familiar with Canadian law regarding the use of commercial pesticides like Demand CS by homeowners without a pest control license. Although, we do know that here in the United States, homeowners are able to use commercial grade insectides on their own property. Please be sure to check with your local government regarding regulations and/or restrictions.

    Q
    What is the difference between Demand CS and Suspend CS, for bed bugs problem
    A
    Bed Bugs have shown resistance to Suspend SC. Demand CS is microencapsulated and will have a longer residual. It takes more than one product to treat for Bed bugs and this is why we recommend using one of our Bed Bug Kits.

    I have a two story log home with a serious carpenter bee and lady bug problem. I need to spray areas approximately 20-30 feet off the ground. What type of sprayer would you recommend for Demand CS?

    The Chapin Slide Pump Sprayer would likely suit your needs well.The brass pump develops pressure up to 150 psi and allows you to reach targets over 30 feet away! Perfect for spraying the eaves of your home or any hard to reach areas. You can see a video of the sprayer in use here:

    Q
    Will Demand CS on the outside of the house work for cluster flies?
    How do I get rid of/prevent cluster flies (hundreds) They do die......but "after" they are in the house.
    A

    Demand CS is not a contact kill so once a fly contacts a treated area it could still get inside before it succombs to the insecticide, but that does mean that it is working. †If the cluster flies have already made their way indoors they will be harder to control because they usually hide in a wall void or other inaccessible area and are only visible when the house warms up. If the cluster flies are in an attic or drop ceiling or other dark area, a fly light would do a great job controlling the population. Using small fly lights such as the†FlyWeb Fly Light†in the house would also help to catch the flies. Spray Talstar directly on baseboards, window frames, door frames, and places where utilities (pipes, wires, cables) enter in to the building and any other crack, crevice or gap where insects can enter. †We also have a great guide here on "How to Get Rid of Cluster Flies" that might help.

    No, Demand CS is not labeled to kill mold. It is only an insecticide.

    The only mold remediation product we sell is Boracare with Mold-Care, which can be used on raw structural wood for mold remediation and prevention.

    Q
    I have Demand CS, how much should I use to kill the tiny black jumping spiders?
    I have used this spray already a few weeks ago, yet I still see the tiny jumping spiders crawling on areas where I sprayed. The spray definitely works on regular house spiders. What should I do?
    A
    Demand CS is a great choice for spider control, but it will take some time for death to occur. For clean out or severe infestions of spiders, including those black jumping spiders, you would want to mix 0.8 fluid oz (24 mL) of Demand CS per gallon of water. Be sure to spray the outside perimeter of your home, spraying 2 to 3 feet up the side of the house and 2-3 feet out on the ground. Also make sure to spray all of your baseboards, any cracks or crevices, window frames and door frames both interior and exterior, or any other place where spiders could gain entry into your home.

    Q
    Can Demand Cs be used outside in Cold weather?
    During what type of temperatures should I not use Demand CS outside around the perimeter of the home.
    A
    As long as it is not freezing outside you can safely use Demand CS outdoors. Since the product is water based trying apply it in below freezing temperatures would not yield positive results.

    Q
    Does Demand CS NOT work for yellow jackets?
    I'm wondering whether this is the wrong pesticide, or if the bottle I have is expired. Been spraying the stuff into place where many, many yellow jackets are entering and exiting (I think they must have a nest inside a pipe on the side of our house), as well as spraying directly on the insects, and it has zero effect. Scores of healthy yellow jackets before, during, and after spraying! I've never seen an insecticide sprayed directly on insects that didn't seem to affect them at all. Bewildered. Any suggestions?
    A

    Demand CS should kill Yellow Jackets after they come in contact with it, however it is not specifically labeled for them. This would not be our number one recommendation for Yellow Jackets because it can take some time to kill them. Please check out our article "How to Get Rid of Yellow Jackets". If you can get to the openings where the yellow jackets are coming in and out from, we highly recommend applying a dust like Tempo 1% Dust and when the yellow jacket comes in contact with it, the dust will transfer from yellow jacket to yellow jacket and kill off the entire nest.

    Q
    Using Demand CS For Stink Bugs
    I used D-fense SC (Active Ingredient : 4.75% Deltamethrin) but it did not get rid of my Stink Bugs in the house. So I have 3 questions. #1 Can I use Demand CS right now even though I sprayed the D-fense SC? $2 What areas do I need to spray Demand CS? Is spraying the window frames, house brick walls, and foundation good enough? #3 Lastly is Demand SC safe on aluminum window clad and composite frames?
    A
    Yes, you can use Demand SC even though you have already sprayed, although you would want to wait 7 days between treatments. Stink Bugs will try to emerge in the spring and common places that people find stinks bugs are in the window sills and this is a great place to treat along with the baseboards, back behind and underneath appliances, in attics, and where pipes enter the the wall. Demand SC is safe on aluminum and composite frames and will not harm any surface that is tolerable to water.
