    Q
    How long does it take to kill fleas using Demon WP?
    A

    Demon WP is not labeled for indoor flea treatments and could cause your lawn to turn white (powdery look). Please let us know if you have already treated with the product or if you were considering this to be a treatment option. The kill time for fleas can vary depending on the life cycle stage. Also, this kill time can vary depending on if and when they came into contact with the product. We will be able to offer advice on application and product suggestions that best fit your needs. It is important to perform a flea treatment indoors and outdoors once every two weeks with a minimum of two applications. Indoor vacuuming will be done daily. Please find our treatment article below that includes helpful videos for flea eradication.

    Q
    How can I neutralize Demon WP with some other substance?
    I have a 1 room apt and I may have overdid it. I sprayed in the summer for german cockroaches and by winter all windows closed and the heat on its unbearable my face burns my arms burn it seems it turned to powder and laid on everything everything I touch I get a burning chemical sensation ,smell i honestly cant breathe in there at all. Any suggestions?
    A
    Demon WP is labeled for roaches including German Roaches. It is mixed with water and applied in the cracks and crevices only per the label. It has an indoor residual for up to three months. If applied properly, it should not be causing any burning unless unlabeled surfaces were treated. We recommend that the apartment be cleaned properly and that you seek medical attention immediately.

    Q
    I sprayed Demon around base boards yesterday and this morning my 8 year old cat
    has vomited about 3-4 times today including tonight at 9:00pm. He is hiding and does not want to sleep on the bed with me which is his practice. He may have walked on wet Demon. What is antidote if he has Demon over exposure?
    A

    We would recommend contacting your veterinarian as soon as possible. They would better be able to give you advice on your cat.

    We do recommend keeping your animals out of any area that was sprayed until Demon WP and any other product is completely dry.

    Q
    Live in apt. Have been using Advion and boric acid for roaches. Roaches still alive.
    Keep getting straglers about once per month. Could the bait gel be attracting them? Perhaps I should start using spray.
    A
    You should definitely be using an insecticide spray to stop new roaches from moving in. Demon WP is one our most popular roach control sprays. You can also caulk all of the cracks and crevices around the baseboards, door frames, window frames and places where cables pipes and wires enter through the walls to block the passage of roaches from your neighbors apartment into your apartment.

    Q
    I am applying Demon WP in the kitchen cabinets, how long after I spray can I put my dishes back in?
    A
    Once Demon WP is dry, is it okay to put your belongings back into the cabinets. Depending on how thoroughly you sprayed the cabinets and how much residue is left behind - It is up to you if you want to wipe it out as well before replacing your belongings.

    Q
    How much Demon WP do I use in a hose-end sprayer?
    We have a hose end sprayer with 1 oz to 8 oz on the dial and it sprays 4 gallons of water per minute. The bottle is 32 oz, how many demon WP packets do we put in the jar to kill spiders?
    A
    You cannot use Demon WP in a hose end sprayer. This is a wettable powder that must be mixed and dissolved into water at the rate of 1-2 packets per gallon of water. There is no way to make a hose end sprayer suck up a powder to disperse in the water as these hose end applicators are only designed for liquids. You also cannot dilute it first and then pour it into the hose end bottle as you will not be accurately treating with the right dilution. You will need to use a hand pump sprayer similar to this Chapin Premier Sprayer to apply this type of product for spider control.

    Q
    I live on acreage and want to apply Demon on my lawn and further out about 20 feet.
    I purchased an Ortho Dial-in hose end sprayer. I am not sure how much Demon and water to put in the hose end sprayer. The bottle on the hose end sprayer holds 32oz's.
    A
    Typically you would want to apply 1 gallon per 1000 square feet of yard.  Each gallon would have one scoop of demon.  So, if your yard was 2000 square feet, you would place two scoops of Demon in the hose end sprayer, then fill the hose end sprayer to the 2 gallon mark with water.  This should apply one scoop per gallon of water over 1000 square feet.

    Q
    Will demon hurt chickens that eat the dead bugs or effect the egg safety?
    Sprayed outside 3 days ago. Kept hens up until today, but they immediately went for the dead bugs when they were let out. Will they be ok? Is it safe to eat the eggs or is there a "detox" period where we should discard the eggs?
    A
    The amount of insecticide on the surfaces is so minute that its only toxic to something the size of an insect. Even if the chickens were to eat many of the dead bugs, they would not be ingesting enough poison to harm them or the eggs.

    Q
    How long will demon WP last once it's mixed ?
    A
    Demon WP will last for about 30 days or more once applied from a sprayer.  Once mixed, Demon WP should be applied and none kept if your sprayer as a mix.  Since Demon WP is a wettable powder, if you store it in your sprayer for more than a week it will start to settle and can clog the hose or nozzles to your spray device.   You should always only mix what you can apply right then.

    Demon WP will kill carpenter bees that land on treated surfaces or try to bore into treated surfaces and while it is known to be some what repellent it will not necessarily repel them from the area.

    Q
    Will Demon WP Insecticide become harmful to pets and humans if it gets wet again?
    I have a 19 month old and a cat and we sprayed demon wp around the cracks and crevices of our entire house (where the walls meet the floor). If I were to mop in a couple of days, would it become poisonous to her again?
    A
    Demon WP Insecticide is safe for children and pets after it has dried. If you were to mop the area, it would take up any residual that was there. Please let us know if you have any more questions.

    Q
    Can I use Demon WP, Maxforce magnum and Gentrol all at once or should i use them all at different times?
    A
    You can use them all at once.The Maxforce Magnum should be applied by placing one small pea sized dot every 10-12 inches directly into cracks and crevices around counters, sinks, drawers and cabinets. You should use one Gentrol Point Source disc for every 75 sq ft of space. In order to know how many discs you should use you would need to know the square footage of the room (multiply the length of the room by the width of the room) (If you have the Gentrol Liquid you can mix it in the same gallon of water as the Demon and spray them together indoors). Demon WP should be sprayed outdoors around door frames, window frames, in areas where utilities (cables, pipes, wires) enter into the structure, around the bottom of the foundation and other areas where insects are known to harbor. Inside you should apply Demon WP along baseboards, in cracks and crevices,under appliances, around door frames, window frames and in areas where utilities (cables, pipes, wires) enter into the structure.

    Q
    Can I use insecticide granules in my crawlspace?
    I have an ant, earwig, and spider issue in my new house. I have sprayed around the yard, but they still seem to be getting in. I would assume that the only other place is under the house in the crawlspace. If I were to retreat the yard with granular insecticide, could I also use it in the crawlspace for added protection? If so, which would be the best kind?
    A
    You would not want to use granules under the crawl space of the house.  The reason being is granules require moisture, either from watering or rain, to release the insecticide that kills the insects.  You should always water in the granules after application especially if you are in an area with little rain and moisture.  This may be why you are not getting good results already in the yard.  Since rain will not make it in the crawl space, or at least it should not be, granules are not good for under the house.  In addition to applying granules in the yard and watering them in, you should apply a liquid insecticide, specifically a wettable powder around the perimeter of the house and underneath the house.  Wettable powders are easier for spiders and other insects to get on their bodies typically and are faster acting.  Our most popular wettable powder product is Demon WP and it can be applied using a hand pump sprayer.

    Q
    Which product has the longest residual against crickets, spiders, and centipedes?
    In my crawl space is where I initially have the problem, then they find themselves inside the home. Living with a wife and 3 daughters is not fun when these pests start to show up.
    A
    Wettable powder formulations such as Demon WP or Tempo WP or microencapsulated formulations such as Onslaught or Cy-Kick CS will have the longest lasting residuals. These formulations are more stable than other insecticide formulations and they are also labeled for crickets, spiders and centipedes. Even the longest lasting insecticide cannot keep out 100% of insects because insects can find creative ways to go around or over insecticides. We recommend that in addition to spraying the perimeter and crawlspace of your home that you also see how you can alter the environment immediately around your home to make it less favorable to insects. Please take a few moments to read our article Integrated Pest Managment to learn how to make your property less favorable to insects.

    Q
    What am I doing wrong?
    I used this product with an IGR. The first time I used 1 package to 1 gal of water (I also added 1 oz of IGR). I doubled both the next day when I came back and the house was still infested with fleas. We are moving into this home in the next few weeks and I can't seem to kill the fleas. I have fogged it 3 times and used Demon WP/IGR mix twice. What am I doing wrong?
    A
    Using that much chemical is what you are doing incorrectly. Fleas did not appear in the unit over night in the numbers you are seeing them, so expecting to get rid of them overnight is unreasonable. Demon is not recommended for use indoors for fleas as you can only treat baseboards with the product and not all the areas where they will hide. While the Demon is allowed to be mixed 2 scoops or 2 packets per gallon, using more IGR than what is labeled to be used is only wasting product. You should only be spraying every 2 weeks for fleas with both an approved insecticide for indoor use for fleas and an IGR. Fogging will only kill the adult fleas that are jumping around while the fog is going off. Foggers are only effective while they are active and leave behind no residual and will not penetrate flea eggs. Please review our tutorial on How To Get Rid of Fleas Indoors to effectively, accurately and safely treat for fleas. This will give you the best idea of what to do to get rid of the fleas as quickly as possible. Keep in mind that even using the right products, the right way it can take weeks to months to completely eliminate a flea infestation if its heavy to catch all the life cycles. You can review our video on the bottom of the page for Home Flea Treatment Indoors that shows you the steps you should take as well. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    Q
    what works better on German cockroach, tempo wp or demon wp?
    A
    Tempo Ultra WP and Demon WP are both labeled for various types of roaches. They have two different active ingredients in them, which is the main difference. We would not recommend using just one product to control roaches. A bait gel and IGR (insect growth regulator) should be added to ensure that you are maintaining control of the roaches.

    Q
    What happens to insecticide after mixed 24 hours
    I read one of your Q&A that the insecticide should be used w/i 24 hours of mixing. I put a packet in a gallon container, mix & then fill a smaller sprayer and spray my apt as needed. It's been sitting around for over a day. Will it still be effective? Thank you
    A
    Using Diluted Demon Wp after it has been mixed 24 hours would not be advised. The reason being is that the active ingredient will start to break down and cause the solution to become less effective.

    Q
    How does Demon WP insecticide compare to Talstar P?
    A
    Talstar P and Demon WP are both synthetic pyrethroid products and work in a very similar way. The key difference here would be that the Demon WP is a wettable powder and as such it is able to stay on the surface of porous areas allowing insects to come in contact with it a bit better. That being said Demon WP also leaves behind a white powdery residue that is visible on dark surfaces. Talstar P is a concentrated liquid that is odorless, dries clear and is labeled for a huge variety of insects (including roaches) and areas making it a bit more versatile.
