We live at the base of the McDowell Mountains in North Scottsdale where crickets, spiders and scorpions are everywhere. I applied Demand CS right before sunset and the following morning it looked like an atomic bomb went off in my yard. Dead crickets, black widow spiders, cockroaches and last but not least the follow evening a slowly dying scorpion in our bedroom that accidentally crossed the wrong path. In nearly three weeks since we applied the product, I have yet to see ONE single cricket, spider, or cockroach. Great product!

We own a log home and have been plagued by carpenter bees. We have tried several other products: powders, liquids, professional and home store strengths and this is by far the best! It is non staining and easy to apply with a garden pump sprayer. After application, we watched the bees hover a minute and then decide to take up residence somewhere else. Those that stuck it out, were dead in the morning. It is almost instantaneous! We also applied it to our barn and found it killed bugs that we didn't even know we had a problem with. Try this product= it works!!!

Demand CS kills fleas that we could never get rid of before. Dead on contact.

Ants, crickets, and roaches no more...
By Gregory on 04/15/2009
We have tried several pest control companies to eradicate our recurring summer sewer roach problem to no avail. When the city treats the sewer drains and manholes, the roaches come into our yard and house. We also live in an area with crickets and tiny black ants. Nothing seemed to stop everything until we tried Demand CS. I read the label carefully and found that the strongest wipe out dose was for scorpions. I carefully measured, mixed, and sprayed the yard, block wall, foundation, windows and doors. The next morning was like a nuclear winter. Dead roaches, ants, and crickets everywhere. Our gardener cleaned them up like leaves. We now use the maintenance dose every three months and have not had a pest in a year. Awesome Stuff!!!

This is magic!
By Steve on 09/04/2008
Bought a neglected house with roaches all over the yard. After spraying 24 gallons of Dursban over a two month period I was still seeing too many roaches to count at night. I put Demand CS down and the next morning had over 60 dead roaches, 30+ more the following day and in 1 month and only 2 applications I'm down to 1 or 2 a day outside (dead) and none inside in a month. I've been outside at 11pm on hot nights and not seen one live roach! This is magic.

Got it for bed bugs with Demand CS and the Gentrol IGR. Had a pretty good infestation in my old apartment, well over 50 bugs and uncountable eggs. Just so happened that I was moving anyway so I thought my problems were solved if I cleaned everything well and brushed everything down with an over the counter deltamethrin solution before the move; not the case. I found about 15 bugs about a week after my move the first time I checked my mattress and bed springs. After first use of the sprays (I tank mixed them all together) I found about 8 bugs 2 weeks later, 2 more weeks down to two, now have not found any, checking about three times for over a month. Guess it works :)

It's a Miracle!
By Ron on 07/23/2010
Moved into a new house last October, have been fighting every bug possible since - stink bugs, crickets, ants, scorpions, mosquitoes, spiders. Used a blacklight one night, found a dozen scorpions in our back yard wall in one night alone. My personal favorite have been finding those large hairy spiders that run faster than lightning. Sprayed Demand about 3 weeks ago, have probably counted a total of 5 bugs outside. Have yet to see a single scorpion or large spider since. This stuff has earned it's keep!

Basically I use Demand CS inside and outside my home for all kinds of bugs, spiders, chiggers and anything else that would invade my home. It works great and I have been using the product now going on 5 years. Its great.

Got this for bed bugs. I combined it with Gentrol and b-cyfluthrin. It seems to finally have gotten rid of them. Tried deltamethrin products before with no luck. The b-cyfluthrin seems to irritate them and make them come out and get exposed. Then it's curtains for them. The Demand CS is not as odorous as the b-cyfluthrin. The b-cyfluthrin has a strong odor. It will go away after drying but is rough while spraying. But it is worth it!

Absolutely love this product!
By Bill on 07/25/2008
When we moved into our house a few years ago we had a major cockroach problem outside around our jasmine covered arbor and deck. Since using Demand CS the problem is NON-EXISTENT. I haven't even seen a dead roach in almost 2 years. Absolutely love the product.

Customers love it
By Clifton on 01/18/2008
Demand CS is the best thing I have ever used for the control of bugs indoors. I am in pest control and use this product daily and receive only positive feedback from all the customers. It works extremely well and customers love how it has no odor.

Works as advertised
By Tom on 04/23/2009
I bought Demand CS because we get Yellow Sac spiders in our house and I was concerned about the safety of my children. Yellow Sac spiders are an aggressive night hunter which are probably more dangerous than the Brown Recluse. I applied Demand to the outside of the house as a barrier. This stuff is simply amazing. It's like a hand came up and wiped the side of the house of insects. Oh, you'll see a spider, drunkenly, walking around. Keep watching him because he's already dead and doesn't know it. Works completely as advertised with just the slightest hint of an odor when applied and none after it dries. Highly recommended.

I had tried everything for my massive black widow infestation. It was out of control with spiders bigger than an inch everywhere. All other insecticides did near nothing unless you soaked the spiders with it. I sprayed it yesterday afternoon, paying special attention to cracks, wood fences and wall corners. Today my back yard and front and side porches are a wasteland of dead spiders. I don't even know where they were hiding, but they are all dead. I cannot recommend this product enough for dangerous spider infestations.

Demand CS gets a 5 star rating from me. It does an excellent job in killing those nasty stink bugs that have been lurking about this year. I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to get rid of stink bugs or any other bugs you want to get rid of in and around your home.

Preventing Bed Bugs
By M. on 10/03/2011
Traveling to cities with reputations for bed bugs is a modern nightmare. We learned the following: Spray the outside of your luggage with Demand CS and Exciter. When you arrive at the hotel (check the internet for bed bug info on your hotel) place the luggage on luggage stands or in the bathtub. Check the mattress for minute black stains. If none, then unpack or keep your luggage on the stand but close before going to bed.

I would love to give it all 5, but 4 is pretty good ! We have been about 98% bedbug free for some time now. I mixed the Demand CS with Gentrol and sprayed in the usual places, and it has been working ! What more can I say. We're shooting for 100%, and I feel it will be achieved, soon ! Great product, you guys !!

Worked within 1 week!
By Jason on 08/24/2005
I had a problem with crickets and spiders. Within a week after I first applied Demand CS I quit hearing and seeing crickets around my house. I also have noticed that there are not any new spider webs.

Don't believe it works! It worked for me NO more BED BUGS!!
By Kane on 01/18/2016
I had bed bugs roughly 8 years ago. So when I got them this time I immediately recognized the agonizing bites. I don't visit many people or have guest in my home, so I don't know where I picked them up from. After using Walmart flea and tick spray/ foggers the bites would come back within days. These bugs were different. I would see them in the ceiling and active in the day time. I had ENOUGH so I called Terminix they wanted to charge me $900. Around Christmas time that wasn't feasible by a long shot. The guy that came out slipped and told me what they used. I denied the treatment from Terminix and did my own research and greatly I found this website. I read review after review and decided to put in an order for Demand CS. I received the product right on time and the same day tore up my house in preparation of treatment. When I tell you this product is amazing I have not been bit or seen a Bed Bug in 4 weeks. Thank you Do My Own Pest Control for offering customers like myself the opportunity to have relief from such pest at such an affordable price. I even have enough left for several treatments which I will be getting ready to do for a safe guard in the next few weeks!!

This product is the best! I've tried every brand of insecticide from Home Depot and nothing can compare to Demand CS. Within two days of spraying I found 8 dead spiders and 3 crickets in our garage. If you want to control spiders in your home I highly recommend Demand CS.

Best Ever for Scorpions
By Bob on 08/30/2010
If you live in Arizona and are familiar with Scorpions, this kills them. Spray at the beginning of Scorpion season (late spring) around your entire house, top and bottom. Three months later do it again. I spray up to four feet from the house, and then up the side of the house. Done. It kills the bugs and the Scorpions too.

I was having a battle with carpenter bees, so I used this to spray my gazebo, inside and out, and haven't seen one bee since. I highly recommend Demand CS, specifically for carpenter bees.

Terrific for cockroaches
By Steve on 05/26/2013
Before Dursban and Diazinon were illegal, I mixed them to control roaches. Once I couldn't get them anymore I was worried that I might not find something as effective as those 2 were when I mixed them. Fortunately, I found Demand CS -- it works FAR better, lasts longer and has no odor. I could not be happier.

Demand CS is great but use protective gear
By Vt on 07/29/2010
This is an amazing bug killer. We live on a lake and the spiders are very active. Demand CS takes care of it in one application. The best I have used. I would highly recommend using a protective paper breathing mask & plastic goggles over your prescription glasses when you apply. I did ruin a pair of prescription glasses a couple of years ago when not wearing goggles.

Demand CS is a fantastic product for eliminating ants at our lake house in Tennessee. We have told many friends about it. We originally got info on this product from our friends in Texas, who use it at their lake house.

I use it for earwigs and other bugs. It kills any bugs that cross the path I spray it on. I spray it around all windows and doors. It does not leave a film. Does a great job.

Demand CS liberated us from our indoor prison.
By Qb on 07/16/2011
Demand CS liberated us from our indoor prison. Weíve battled fly infestations the last few summers probably due to a large farm field located about one acre away. Itís routinely sprayed with liquid manure from the air. Thereís also a pile of poultry dropping and fowl (pun intended) body parts mixed in the large manure pile too, and it appears that it is refreshed frequently by a local poultry barn. The pile is located within our occasional smelling distance if the wind is right, and our neighborhood suffers additional dipteral attention when itís added to. Thereís a small lake on the other side, and thereís been an above average rainfall this year. The mosquito problem shouldíve been worse, and we werenít looking forward to a repeat of the frustrating misery experienced in past years. Weíve also noticed deer ticks this year they were not a problem in past years. We had to do something, because we couldnít even invite friends over to enjoy an outdoor meal by the lake for fear of the swarms. It was like being a prisoner. A friend recommended Demand CS. The product was applied around the house, under our low deck, and on bushes and undergrowth bordering the property. Although we sprayed places a fly or mosquito might hide, weíve avoided flowering areas that might affect bees. Even though the product is advertised as safe and used in playgrounds, we avoided the common areas children play in too as it seemed sensible. Three neighboring lots did the same thing, focusing on bordering vegetation and structure, and after a couple applications thereís been a noticeable improvement. We may still see a fly or two, or perhaps a small swarm of mosquitos will move in at dusk; however, the all day battles seem to be over. There havenít been any ticks attached either; however, they were never a problem before this year, so its hard to speculate if itís the product or some other factor. The bottom line is that we can eat a meal outdoors and enjoy our lot throughout the day. Itís been a liberating experience for the family.

Pretty Much Worthless Against Carpenter Bees
By Chris on 06/10/2012
I DOUSED the entire perimeter of my house, all fascia boards, around gutters, any exposed wood, etc. I followed the directions exactly. The carpenter bees that are all over my house have not been affected AT ALL by this product. I've found this product to be a complete waste of money. Carpenter bees were supposed to be one of the pests that this product was effective against. It IS NOT!

Does Not Work for Bed Bugs
By Dave on 12/23/2013
We purchased a small house (850 sq ft) and learned they had a Bed Bug infestation after the purchase. We used Demand CS with Gentrol IGR and mixed according to directions. We applied EVERYWHERE every two weeks for two months prior to move in. The week after move-in... bed bug bites. We applied again, and again for the next two months... no effect. In addition, after a month, we bombed the basement and saw crickets, cockroaches, and other bugs that Demand CS had not killed after over two months of treatment. Try something else.

This is the second bottle of Demand CS I have bought. I bought the first years ago and have used it extensively. Paid $80 for the equivalent then, but it is still very economical when one considers the price of a professional. It goes a long way. We bought it because of brown recluse. It is the most effective pest control I have seen for this. I treat every three months and haven't seen a sign of them for years. Lent it to relatives and they have found it very effective against other pests. It does not kill on contact, but it kills, and is effective for a long time (the nature of its design). It is relatively safe for pets (we have dogs and cats), of course use obvious precautions - wear gloves, or at least eye protection when applying, and wash immediately if it come in contact with your skin
