Demand G Granules

From the makers of Demand CS comes a new granular insecticide for your lawn--Demand G. Labeled for lawn, landscape, and perimeter use, Demand G is an innovative granular insecticide that provides powerful protection against nearly 30 species of pests (including ants, beetles, mole crickets, earwigs, firebrats, millipedes, mites, silverfish, chinch bugs and more). When used outside, Demand G Granules form a barrier of protection against unwanted pests around your home. It is an ideal product for windy or rainy days when spray or liquid formulas would be rendered ineffective by weather conditions. Granule perimeter treatments are typically applied in a band of up to five feet wide around the house and can be applied to soil, ornamental plants, mulch, and lawn. Once Demand is applied, its active ingredient—lambda-cyhalothrin— begins working to disrupt the nervous system of any pest that comes in contact with it in just minutes. After the first use, you should not see traces of your target pest for several months. However reapplication may be necessary depending on the severity of the problem, climate, and other factors.

Directions for Use:

Demand G Insecticide may be used for applications to maintain interior plantscapes or outdoor areas where turf and ornamental ground covers are grown such as residential landscaped areas and nonresidential landscapes around institutional, public, commercial and industrial buildings, parks, recreationalareas, and athletic fields.

Broadcast Demand G Insecticide with suitable application equipment to ensure uniform coverage over the treatment area. The application rates listed in the Lawn and Perimeter Use Rate table on the product label will provide excellent control of the respective pests under typical conditions. Use higher use rate for longer length of control. Watering (irrigation or rainfall) following application will dissolve the granules and release the insecticide. Make no more than 6 general applications per year. More frequent treatments should be limited to spot treatments.


Band Treatment around Foundation For control of ants, beetles, crickets, earwigs, firebrats, millipedes, mites, silverfish and sowbugs as commonly found around or near foundation of structures as well as in yards. Applying a continual band of insecticide around a building foundation can greatly reduce the potential for entry by crawling pests. For optimal control, remove debris and leaf litter from next to the foundation, cut back vegetation and branches that touch the foundation, and move or rake back rocks, deep mulch, or other potential pest harborage next to the foundation prior to application. Apply a 3 to 5 foot band of granules next to the structure foundation. Apply at the rate of 2 to 3 lbs. per 1000 square feet. Distribute granules uniformly. For optimal control, water lightly to dissolve granules.

General Lawn Application For control of ants, armyworms, centipedes, crickets, cutworms, earwigs, grasshoppers, green June beetles, Japanese beetles (adult), leafhoppers, millipedes, mites, pillbugs, sod webworms, spider mites, spittlebugs and springtails. Apply at the rate of 2 to 3 lbs. per 1000 square feet with a fertilizer spreader when grass is dry. For best results, water lawn lightly to dissolve granules. For control or suppression of billbugs, chinch bugs, dung beetles, green June beetle grubs, Hyperodes weevils, Japanese beetle grubs and mole crickets, immediately water grass thoroughly after application.

  • For billbug control, apply when activity is first observed or when chewed or brown grass indicates damage from these insects.
  • For grub suppression, except dung beetle, treat any time between late July and early October. For dung beetle grub suppression, apply in spring or early summer when damage is first noticed. For best results, water grass thoroughly with 1/4 to 1/2 inch of water as soon as possible following application. Treat again in late summer or early fall if a second generation occurs.
  • For chinch bugs, use higher rates during summer when both nymphs and adults may be present.
  • For mole crickets, make applications for adults during early spring when grass areas may be subject to continuous invasion. For best results, apply as late in the day as possible and water in with up to 0.5 inches of water as soon as possible following treatment. When the soil is not moist, irrigation before application will bring mole crickets closer to the surface to enhance contact with the granule. Applications at the time of peak egg hatch will increase control of early nymphal stages that are more susceptible to insecticides. As nymphs mature, higher rates may be necessary.

Spot Treatment for Ants

For general ant control, apply 2 teaspoons over and around each ant hill. Lightly water to dissolve granules. Apply water gently to avoid disturbing ants, first breaking any soil crust if necessary to ensure water penetrates the nest. Use of high pressure watering equipment may disturb the ants and cause migration reducing product effectiveness.

NOTE: For best results, apply in cool weather, 60° to 80° F or in early morning or late evening hours. Treat near mounds as they appear. Difficult or extensive ant infestations will benefit from a combination of broadcast treatments and spot applications. If soil is not moist, irrigate before application to bring ants closer to the surface to enhance control with Demand G Insecticide granules.

    5 of 5 stars  GOOD STUFF
    By The in Fairfax, VA on 06/13/2011
    Verified Purchase

    Recommended by my bug control guy. Good stuff, according to what I found on the Internet and others experience and a good price too. The only thing neg. about the product is that I could not find a spreader setting anywhere on the bag. So I went ahead and laid down what I thought would be appropriate for the conditions for this type of powerful bug control.

    By Allison in Box Elder, SD on 09/01/2011
    Verified Purchase

    For the money and size of the bag its a great deal compared to competitors. I used my manual grass seed spreader for this product and it worked great. I FOLLOWED the instructions to kill grasshoppers and crickets and was amazed with the results. The description states that it could take weeks to months to fully take effect. After 2 hours I walked out into my yard and saw over 30 dead grasshoppers and crickets in my front lawn alone! I LOVE this product. Now I have enough still left over to treat in the future.

    By Betty in Mentor, Ohio on 07/15/2014
    Verified Purchase

    I've used this product twice around the perimeter of my house in about the last couple months. I have a very bad case of springtails and earwigs. This product seemed to kill the earwigs with great success but still am having trouble with the springtails. Hopefully something will come along that helps with the springtails.

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    Springtails are, unfortunately, a persistent and difficult pest to treat. Controlling them is ultimately linked to identifying and correcting the moist environment where they breed. This could be dense mulch beds adjacent to the structure, a plumbing leak indoors, buildup under a concrete slab, or a result of water damage such as flooding.

    5 of 5 stars  Help for Crane Fly
    By Amanda in Sammamish, WA on 03/13/2013
    Verified Purchase

    We have crane fly problems every year with our lawn. We've yet to lose it, but they are a terrible infestation that we battle. Previously we used a wonderful lawn service (who unfortunately were overtaken by True Green). The previous person who cared for my lawn exclusively used this product to treat for crane fly and other insects. I'm so happy I can do it myself. Our yard is 5,000 sq. ft. I actually applied the product myself yesterday with a spreader. Seems like I'll get several applications out of this bag. As for the service with this website site, they have been great and proactive with follow-up, ship dates, etc. So far, very good.

  • 4 of 5 stars  Demand G Granule Results
    By Mike in Acworth, Georgia on 08/23/2016

    I have used Demand G around the perimeter of my house going on 3 years. For the first two seasons it was a smash hit. In all that time just one American Roach got in- and he was D-O-A ! It worked extremely well. This season things have been slightly different. I believe that either I am not putting it down as heavily as before, or the indiginous American Roaches and/ or waterbugs are getting a little immune to it. It only stands to reason that after several years, if any bugs survive contact with ot then they will breed more tolerant bugs. But for whatever reason I have seen a few American Roaches in my house this summer. However the numbers are 10X better still than before I ever used Demand G, and still much much better that when we employed an expensive treatment service ( 100.00 per treatment! ) . So all in all I think that after 3 seasons the Demand G has done its job. I will probably step up to something a little more stronger when my Demand G runs out. I must say though that I have been 100% satisfied woth Demand G and DO MY OWN PEST CONTROL and would recommend both to anyone. One final word: I went to a Methodist church in my home town for years and years. They used a local pest control once a month for all those years. After each application there were huge dead roaches here and there- in the sanctuary and hall ways and restrooms. Were the treatments effective? Many dead bugs after each, but then obviously after a few weeks they would be back. I feel like my experiance with Demand G has been much, much better than the churches. Thats the problem with the services- they want to control problems but not eliminate them, hence to mitigate more business down the road.

    Purchased to get rid of Springtails. From all I have read, it takes time to get rid of them for good. These little critters are everywhere! Used Demand G along with Biofin. When you spray rails they springtails disappear for a couple of days but reture. It is probabaly some that have hatched out. Not a bad price and free shipping. Good people to deal with!

    I purchased Demand G Granules for Springtails issue in my back yard, and it's been over a week since I sprayed in the yard and didn't see any difference.

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    Springtails are a prolific and persistent pest. You must identify and eliminate the breeding source of the springtails to fully eradicate them.

    We just moved to a rural area in Florida that had massively huge crazy ants that bite. Put the granules on the yard and have only had to go back a few times to put some on some bigger ant hills. The only thing I would say is that the bag does say it treats for ticks and my daughter just had one on her back 2 weeks after first application. I'm just hoping we don't see any more of those!

    5 of 5 stars  Finally - something that completely kills the crane fly!
    By in Sammamish WA on 07/12/2013
    Verified Purchase

    After years of battling (and on the verge of losing my lawn), I finally found something that works. I did many applications this spring (3 - perhaps overkill but desperation will do that), but had NONE after using this product! First year ever I'm crane fly free!! Crane fly are tricky to kill as they are temp dependent and only surface within "kill depth" on warmer days. This is the exact product my previous lawn guru guy used. Highly recommend.

QWhat can I use to make my lawn less attractive to moles?
I want to use a granular treatment around the perimeter of my house to prevent a wide variety of insects and make that area less attractive to moles. What do you recommend? I live in central Illinois, close to a wooded area. I have used Talprid for mole invasions. I also have perimeter plastic monitoring stations with wood in them. I have used Bifen IT &LP in spring and fall, but feel there may be some more effective chemicals.

AWhile Bifen LP and Bifen IT are great products they are not labeled for grubs, a favorite food source for moles. We recommend trying Demand G granules. Demand G is labeled for over 30 soil dwelling insects that moles love to feed on.  Demand G works great for whole lawn treatments, perimeter applications and spot applications.

QBifenthrin or Demand G for Spider Control in Lawn?
Would you recommend Bifenthrin or Demand G (or other) for long-term control of spiders in one's lawn, esp. near the house?


Nether, Bifenthrin granules or Demand  G are labeled for Spiders. We do not recommend using either for spider control. Better you can use a product like Onslaught and broadcast spray over lawn. Be sure to focus on shady cool areas as well. Onslaught will give you up to 2 months control.

QWhat is the best product to use for a large infestation of grasshoppers?


Demand G granules is an excellent option for 2-3 month control of grasshoppers in your lawn. The product will applied with a speader and watered in.

If you are looking for a liquid solution, Demand CS would be an excellent option as well. This can also be used indoors around the baseboards, cracks and crevices. This will last approximately 90 days indoors and 30 days outdoors.

QWhat setting should I use for 3# /1000SF w/ Scott's rotary spreader?


We don't have the exact spreader setting for your model spreader. The easiest way to determine the correct setting for your needs is outlined below:

If you need to use 3lbs of product per 1,000 sq ft you would  add 3 lb of product to spreader, start with a medium setting, then apply product to a 20 x 50 ft area (1,000 sq ft).  If you have product left, your setting is too low.  If you run out of product, your setting is too high.  Typically if you walk at a normal pace and set the spreader at the middle setting, that is usually the right amount per 1000 square feet. If you only have a few settings, then it is best to start lower and then you can easily increase as needed.

QWill the Demand G Granules get rid of Milipedes?
I live in Delray Beach, Florida. Its just North of Boca Raton, Florida. For the last 3 years I have been invaded by Milipedes. I use Ortho Home Defense, however, it does not seem to phase much. How can I get rid of these bugs?


Demand G is labeled for millipede control and will help you limit their numbers greatly. According to the Demand G product label: "For optimal control, remove debris and leaf litter from next to the foundation, cut back vegetation and branches that touch the foundation, and move or rake back rocks, deep mulch, or other potential pest harborage areas next to the foundation prior to application". You should not rely solely on chemical control. There are ways to modify the environment immediately around your home to discourage insects from moving in. Please take a few moments to read our article How to Get Rid of Millipedes to learn how to make your property less desirable to this pest.

QWhat would be the proper setting for Demand G Granules with a Scotts 3000 broadcast and drop spreader?
I just want to control some lawn bugs and moths in the lawn and around the foundation where there are pavers.


<span font-size:13.3333330154419px"="">Demand G has an application rate of 2-3 lbs product per 1000 square feet.  So if you can figure out what your walking speed is then you know anytime you apply any product that calls for so much of it per 1000 square feet, you always set your spreader on this setting.  You can calibrate this by marking off a 1000 square foot (10 x 100) area and placing 4 ounces of any type of product of similar granule size, or of the extinguish in the spreader.  Start with a low setting and start walking your marked off area at a normal pace.  You can adjust as you go and find the basic setting for you to apply the product over a 1000 square feet.
