    Q
    Will Demon WP kill black widow spiders in my house?
    Will Demon WP kill black widow spiders in my house? I have a puppy and am worried she might get bit. I also have big brown spiders outdoors. Is Demon WP the best choice?
    A
    Demon WP would be a great choice for indoor and outdoor spider control. The active ingredient in Demon WP is cypermethrin, which is known to be one of the top choices for spider control. Spraying Demon WP will also help to get rid of the insects that spiders feed on and that will help to stop new spiders from moving in.

    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
    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
    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
    Will Demon WP kill bed bugs?
    A

    No, Demon WP is not labeled for bed bugs.

    We would recommend using Temprid SC. For your first treatment, you will use 16 mL per gallon of water and spray around the baseboards and cracks and crevices in the rooms where bed bug activity has been found. You will do follow up treatments every 10-14 days until there is no activity for 30 days. We would also recommend using Cimexa dust inside the wall voids. The bed bugs will walk over the dust and dry out. This can be applied with a hand duster. We would also recommend treating your mattress and box spring directly with Bedlam Insecticide. You will treat the tufts and seams of the mattress where bed bugs are likely to reside. Our Bed Bug Guide is a wonderful guide that we provide as well.

    Q
    How long does it take for Demon WP to kill fleas after treatment?
    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 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.

    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
    Is Demon WP safe for pet snakes after it dries?
    Can you put their enclosures near application areas after it dries?
    A
    When used as directed Demon WP would be safe.  Demon WP should only be applied to cracks and crevices, along baseboards etc.  Just putting the enclosure near these areas would not pose harm to the snake.  Pets should be out of the treatment area until dry.

    Q
    Can I use Demon WP alongside Invict Gold Cockroach Bait Gel?
    A

    You can use Demon WP Insecticide and Invict Gold or another cockroach bait gel in the same treatment rooms, however you want to avoid spraying on top of bait placements or in areas where you are going to place baits. Your general rule is to SPRAY LOW and BAIT HIGH. To mix the Demon WP, you should use 1-2 packets per gallon of water, so if you were to use less water, you should still use at least 1/2 gallon of water for 1 packet. You could also choose a ready-to-use product instead of a concentrate so that you do not have to worry about mixing correctly. We sell a new product called Dos Flea and Crawling Insect Spray†which contains both an insecticide and an IGR for control of roaches and other listed insects. Please see our Roach Treatment Guide for more tips and information.

    Q
    What can I spray for spiders?
    i can feel and sometime see the spider web
    A

    Demon WP is a great choice for spider control. Demon WP is a wettable powder that is diluted in water, and then sprayed around door frames, window frames, in areas where utilities (cables, pipes, wires) enter into a structure, around the bottom of the foundation and other area where insects are known to harbor. Demon WP will also eliminate the other insects in the area which in turn will help discourage other spiders from moving in since they will not have a food source to rely on.  Demon WP can leave a white powdery residue on dark surfaces. If the powdery residue is a concern you can choose a micro-encapsulated product such as Onslaught.

    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 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
    Length of time needed before rain for Demon insecticide
    Approximately 10-11 hours after spraying the exterior of my home with the Demon insecticide it began to rain. (I sprayed about 6:30 p.m. and it began raining the next morning.) Should that be enough time for the insecticide to "set" or will I need to respray?
    A
    As long as Demon WP had time to dry (1-2hours) the rain will not wash it away.

    Q
    My objective is to kill scorpions especially inside the home. Is Demon WP the best product?
    A
    Yes.  Demon WP is our best seller for scorpions.  Since it is a wettable powder it is easy for the scorpions to pick the product up on their bodies.  We also sell scorpion uv flashlights that can aid in detection when looking for scorpions.

    Q
    I have indoor birds. Will Demon WP affect then in any way?

    We would not recommend spraying Demon WP while the birds are in the room. Demon WP is safe for animals once it has dried. This could take anywhere between 2-3 hours.
