How D-Force HPX Works
D-Force is a ready-to-use, pressurized (aerosol) insecticide with the active ingredient Deltamethrin. Deltamethrin is a synthetic pyrethroid that kills by acting as a high-power poison to the insect's central nervous system. Once poisoned, the insect’s nerve cells become excited, causing paralysis and eventual death. D-Force is designed to kill insects either by direct spray or by contact with the dry residual for up to 8 weeks after application.

Target Uses of D-Force HPX
D-Force aerosol insecticide is a convenient, ready-to-use product with the same active ingredient as the popular Suspend SC insecticide concentrate. D-Force treats the most common household crawling and flying insect pests, including ants, cockroaches, spiders, silverfish, pantry pests, bed bugs, carpenter bees, swarming termites, and many more. The convenience of an aerosol is ideal for small areas, such as apartments, or for detailed treatments such as cracks and crevices.
D-Force can be used in a variety of areas, including residential and commercial buildings and food-handling establishments. Use indoors as a spot or crack and crevice treatment, or outdoors for perimeter pests, as a spot treatment, or for surface applications for flying or crawling pests. D-Force should not be used as a broadcast treatment or as a substitute for insecticide concentrates when treating large areas.

When pests are driven out, spray directly.
Ants: Spray freely around ant trails, doors and windows and other places where ants enter the house.
Fleas and ticks on surfaces: Remove pet bedding and destroy or clean thoroughly. Spray pet resting quarters. Adult fleas and larvae contacted by spray will be killed. Put fresh bedding down once spray has dried. Do not spray animals directly. For best results, pets should be treated with an appropriate before returning to the treated area.

WOOD INFESTING INSECTS: Termites* (Subterranean, Formosan and Drywood)- For control of above-ground termites in localized areas, apply to voids and galleries in damaged wood, and in spaces between wooden structural members and between the sill plate and foundation where wood is vulnerable. Applications may be made to inaccessible areas by drilling, and then injecting with the supplied void injector into the damaged wood or wall voids. These applications are not a substitute for mechanical alteration, soil treatment or foundation treatment but merely a supplement for controlling active infestations of subterranean termites. Termite carton nests in building voids may be injected using a void injector. It is desirable to physically remove carton nest material from building voids when such nests are found. This type of application is intended to be a supplemental treatment for control of drywood and above-ground subterranean termites and other wood-infesting insects. Application to attics, crawl spaces, unfinished basements, or manmade voids may be sprayed to control exposed worker and winged reproductive forms of termites. For control of swarming or reproductive stages of termites, spray to the swarm or area on which they collect. The purpose of such applications of this product is to kill workers or winged reproductive forms which may be present at the time of treatment. Such applications are not a substitute for mechanical alteration, soil treatment or foundation treatment but are merely a supplement. This product is not recommended as sole protection against termites. For active indoor termite infestations, get a professional inspection.
Carpenter Ants: For effective control in houses and other structures, apply as general surface, spot, crack and crevice or wall void application. Apply around doors and windows and other places where ants may enter the premises and where they crawl and hide. Spray into cracks and crevices or through small drilled holes into voids where these ants or their nests are present.
For control of carpenter bees in structures, spray the liquid directly into gallery entrance holes. Following treatment, the entrance holes may be left open 24 hours to be certain that returning adult bees are killed. When there is no activity, the hole may be sealed with a suitable sealant.
Point nozzle away from face. Hold can in a slight downward angle, approximately 12-15 inches from surface to be sprayed. For best results, spray when air is calm. Spray with wind if breeze is blowing.
Perimeter Treatment: For control of building infestation to ants, clover mites, crickets and sowbugs (pillbugs). Spray foundation of building where insects are active and may find entrance up to a height of 2 to 3 feet. Apply as a residual spray to outside surfaces of buildings where insects tend to congregate. Spray areas include areas such as screens, window frames, eaves, porches, patios, garages and refuse dumps.
Crawling Insects: Ants, Cockroaches, (including Asian Cockroaches), Centipedes, Crickets, Mole Crickets and Silverfish. Spray infested surface of patio or picnic area, hitting as many insects as possible. Also spray legs of tables and chairs to repel ants. Ants: Apply to ant trails, around doors and windows and other places where ants maybe found.
Lone Star Ticks, Dog Ticks, Crickets, Fleas and Earwigs: Apply thoroughly to infestation in bushes, grass or weeds.
Wasps, Mud Daubers, Hornets and Bees: Spray nests and bees directly. D-Force is not a knockdown agent, so insects will not die immediately.
Flying Insects: Houseflies, Gnats, Mosquitoes and Small Flying Moths: Use only on outdoor surfaces. Spray outside surfaces of window and door frames and other areas where these pests may enter the home. Also spray localized resting areas, such as under eaves, porches, light fixtures and cords, railings, etc. where these insects may rest. Insects coming to rest on treated surfaces will be killed.
Termites: For control of above-ground termites inside trees, utility poles, fencing and decking materials and similar structural members, drill to find the interior infested cavity and spray using void injector. Termite carton nests in trees may be spray injected with product using the supplied void injector. Multiple injection points to varying depths may be necessary.

Eliminated our problem.
By Supriya on 03/28/2007
I encountered a bed bug infestation when I just started renting an apartment. I used D-Force HPX and to my surprise we were able to completely eliminate our problem. But you need to follow treatment every 10 days. Vacuum under the bed, sofa and mattress. Spray around the mattress, bed frames and carpet. We did not have to throw out any furniture.

If you have a bedbug problem, D-Force HPX really works. It kills them instantly. I recommend this product to any one with bed bugs along with Drione Dust and Gentrol. Use these three products together and you will be bug free within 6 weeks not to mention it won't break the piggy bank like an exterminator would.

It's Worth Your Money!
By Ana in Gainesville, Fl on 10/18/2010
I'm telling you folks, this product works! I had a suspicion of bed bugs (there were random marks showing up on my skin in patterns...) and after reading other reviews purchased this product. Aside from the smell, which I recommend you vacate your place for at least 3 hours after dispersing, this product is certainly a miracle worker. Also, you can't beat the free shipping and speedy delivery!

Keep this stocked!
By Valerie on 10/18/2008
We've used D-Force HPX on just about everything. Our cricket problem is no longer a problem, and our ants don't seem to like that we keep this stuff stocked. Oh, and just so you know this stuff will take a wasp right out of flight. Love it.

By Hate in Baltimore, MD. on 08/09/2011
I have used this product for years in my home. I will mop my laundry room real good pull out everything washer, dryer, shelves then around the base board I will spray D-Force real good and this product leaves a residue that bugs that come in contact with it up to a year later after I've sprayed it will still die. Then I started to having a problem with stink bugs and other insects on my screen door and in the front of my home because of the porch light and that's a nuisance when you come home at night trying to get in the house so I started spraying D-Force on my screen door and side light and mailbox in the evening the problem stopped and any stink bug or insect that landed were dead. For a while I had to go out in the morning and hose off dead stink bugs and insects but the problem has decreased tremendously. YES THIS PRODUCT KILLS STINK BUGS. I will never purchase another bug spray as long as they make this one and the shipping really is fast and you can't beat free shipping. I love this product it really, really, really works.

truly remarkable product
By Dean in Boca Raton, FL on 09/13/2010
I conquered bedbugs after being infected I think by a rat that got in thru a hole in the ceiling. Discovered Fall '08. After the initial bedroom treatment by an exterminator I had a second wave in the living room and bedroom. With a little research I discovered dforce-hpx and with a strategy of periodic spraying I have had none since Spring '09. I've heard no mention of this truly remarkable product. The media only dredges up DDT that BBs became resistant to anyway. It is a plant oil that scrambles the nervous system of bugs but for which vertebrates (people, animals, fish) have no receptors - i.e., perfectly safe. The first time I smelled it it seemed odd and subsequently it is almost unnoticed.

GET RID OF BED BUGS!
By Renee in Bronx, NY on 08/11/2010
I purchased this item after finding out that I had bed bugs in my apartment. This was one of the sprays used by the exterminator, which he highly recommended. I purchased two cans and have yet to use the second can. About 3 weeks after the exterminator came, I saw a few more bugs and was able to locate the source. I vacuumed and sprayed this baby and its been 2 weeks that I haven't seen a bug nor have been bitten. I highly recommend this product, and according to the can its for most bugs, roaches, ants, etc.

PERFECT FOR BED BUGS
By Banupriya in Detroit, MI on 05/25/2010
I live in a 30yr old on-campus apartment, which is infested with bed bugs. I had horrible times fighting against these creatures. The bites even left black spots on my skin. My sister-in-law introduced me to this product and I am so grateful to her for it. I sprayed it all around my bedroom and my wooden cabinet. I was able to see a great difference in the reduction of the bugs and I kept spraying this product every 3 months and vacuuming. Now I am so relieved of those bugs. I did not have any side effects so far using this product. I have been using it for the past 1 year and 6 months. You will have to find another resource for roaches. Thank you.

D-FORCE HPX THE BED BUG KILLER
By Rigoberto in New York on 05/10/2010
I had a bed bug infestation that I had to get rid of all my furniture and my carpet. I vacuumed all the walls. Used other products then and problem persisted. When I started using D-Force HPX right away I noticed results. By the 3rd day all bed bugs were gone. I keep using it every 8 weeks and I have not seen another bug. What I like about it is that there was no smell and no residue. I will recommend this product.

Ask a Question
QWhat is the best way to use D-Force HPX Aerosol for bed bug control?
We live in an apartment building where many tenants seem to have a bedbug problem. Some have even been found in the laundry room. After eliminating the initial infestation, should we use D-Force again to prevent re infestation, and if so, how soon and/or often? We actually found two adults in our search with no visible excrement and no visible eggs after a thorough search of box springs, drawers and closets. Do you think it is necessary to do the whole apartment or will doing the bedroom suffice?
A If you were to use one product for prevention and/or treatment of bed bugs, then we would recommend Bedlam. It is our most popular product and it will kill adult bed bugs as well as bed bug eggs. D-Force will not kill bed bug eggs, and there is a concern of bed bugs becoming resistant to D-Force. If you have only found bed bugs in your bedroom then it would probably be OK to only treat that room, but if bed bugs were found all over different areas of the buildings, then you should treat the whole unit for adequate protection. Also, if you have been sleeping on a couch instead of your room then you would want to treat the whole apartment. You should use one of our Bed Bug Kits for optimal results.

QHow do you get rid of flying ants?
For the past two weeks I have been finding dead flying ants in my kitchen and bathroom. I live in a condo with an attic, I have searched but cannot find the colony, what do you recommend to get rid of them?
AFirst off you should make sure they are definitely swarming ants and not swarming termites, which are sometimes confused with swarming ants. If they are ants, then it is very hard to get rid of the problem until they stop swarming on their own unless you know where they are getting in. You can treat all baseboards, cracks and crevices, window sills, and other areas with a residual aerosol to try to kill the ants as they are entering the bathrooms, but other than that there are not many options if you have no idea where they are getting in. We would recommend D-Force HPX Aerosol to use around the baseboards and other areas.
QWill D-Force HPX kill spiders that live in the upper corners of rooms in my apartment?
I live in an apartment that seems to be a spider magnet! Every couple of weeks I have to vacuum the corners of the ceilings because of the spiders. Can D-Force HPX be used for this problem? Also, does this product stain? The walls are white.
AD-Force HPX will kill spiders, but it does not offer an immediate knockdown. Using a good residual product such, as D-Force HPX, around door frames, window frames, baseboards, places where cables, pipes or wires enter through the walls and any other cracks or crevice will not only help kill the spiders, but it will also kill other insects which is what the spiders are there to feed on. By removing the other insects, you will be able to stop new spiders from moving in and you will be able to break the cycle of spider infestation. You should also use glue boards under sinks and in cabinets, under and behind furniture and appliances and in the back of closets and storage spaces which will help monitor infestations and remove insects and spiders from your apartment. D-Force HPX should not stain when used as directed on the product label but we still recommend testing it on a small inconspicuous area to be sure.
QI have found 3 bugs that look like carpet beetles in my house. Should I be concerned? Should I take action?
I found them in my bedroom. Is there anything that I should be doing?
AThe main thing you should do is a thorough inspection to see if you can find any infested items. If you do find infested items it will be necessary to thoroughly clean the area or dispose of the infested item and treat the cracks and crevices with a residual spray such as D-Force HPX. You can learn more about carpet beetles by reading our article Carpet Beetle Pest Control
QCan I spray D-Force HPX in my kitchen drawers and cabinets?
AD-Force HPX can be sprayed directly into cracks and crevices under and behind kitchen drawers and cabinets.
10/05/2014 Debbie from Queens,ny
I had grain/flour weevil in my panty closet last summer. I managed to clean it out but now I am seeing the weevil in my kitchen cabinets. I found a bunch under the sink in the cabinet. Not sure what they were feeding on as there is no food in any of those cabinets. Looks like they may be under and behind the cabinet. Could they be feeding on crumbs under the cabinets? I can get under there or behind to clean it out obviously. Hoping D Force will work for me. thanks.
AD-Force HPX is labeled to treat for weevils. You will need to remove all food, utensils and shelf paper from the area being treated. Discard the shelf paper and any infected food. Apply the spray to the shelves and in cracks and crevices behind and under cabinets.
QCan this product be used with Gentrol for cigarette beetles? If yes, which one is applied first?
AYes, D-Force HPX can be applied with Gentrol IGR. We would recommend using the Gentrol IGR first and letting it dry. The residual is 4 months with this product so you do not have to use this every time you are spraying for the cigarette beetles. D-Force HPX has a residual of up to 8 weeks. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
08/09/2014 Angela from Los Angeles
QWill D-Force HPX get rid of cigarette beetles? I got rid of the source but still see them around.
How long should we leave the room after spraying?
AYes, D-Force HPX is labeled for cigarette beetles. We would recommend leaving the room until the product dries completely. This could be up to 3 hours. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

QHow to get rid of millipedes worms?
They are all in my home. Especially in our bathroom. We sweep at least 4 or more times. What can we do to fix this problem?
AFirst you want to
Then you want to flush out the area with an adulticide like: CB Air Devil HPX is a cypermethrin residual contact kill aerosol that HPX is specially formulated to clear out large numbers of target insects fast, and provides up to 3 months of protection. For treatment of millipedes, spray CB Air Devil around doors and windows and other areas where millipedes may be found or where they may enter premises. Spray baseboards, storage areas and other locations. Repeat as necessary. Next you want to do the perimeter treatment indoors and out. Demand CS, Suspend SC, and Cyper WP are residual liquid formulation pesticides that are added to water and applied with a low-pressure sprayer can provide a powerful residual that continues working for 4 to 8 weeks following application. These residual liquid formulations can be sprayed along the outside perimeter of the home (especially under and around eaves, decks, patios, and window shutters), and inside along baseboards, in cracks and crevices, and other potential millipede harborages. You will know the residual is working because you will begin finding only dead millipedes rather than live ones.

QDoes D-Force work for Carpenter bee holes in wood and what would you recommend for knocking down the male bee?
AD-Force HPX will eliminate carpenter bees in their holes. D-Force HPX does not offer an instant knockdown and the bee will die within a few hours of contact. We recommend that you use a concentrated liquid insecticide such as Equil Lambda 9.7 on the exterior of your home to eliminate any other carpenter bees that may fly into the area in search of a place to drill a hole. By spraying the wood you would help prevent furture damage from carpenter bees. The male carpenter bees do not cause damage and they cannot sting but they will be eliminated if they land on any treated area.

QI live in western NY and have a problem with larder beetles. What product would I use against these pests?
They are mostly in my kitchen in one location, but we've been finding them in the basement now.
ALarder beetles attack all products of animal origin, including feathers, horn, skins, ham, bacon, dried beef, hides, hair, beeswax, and similar products. You must completely clean out the infested cabinets, discard any infested food products and thoroughly vacuum all of the cracks and crevices where larvae may hide. Next you can apply a product called D-Force HPX. According to the D-Force HPX product label: Remove all food-stuffs, utensils and shelf paper from area to be treated. Discard used shelf paper and any infested foodstuffs. Apply spray to shelves and in cracks and crevices behind and under cupboards and cabinets. Allow spray to dry prior to replacement of shelf paper, food and utensils.
QHow do I get rid of cave crickets?
I've applied Niban around my basement apartment twice this summer. While it works great at first, the cave crickets always seem to come back. It's a huge problem and I can't figure out how to get rid of them for good. I find them in every single room of my apartment. Glue traps are not enough. Please help!
AGetting rid of crickets that have already found harborage indoors can be tough. We recommend that you spray a good residual product such as D-force HPX aerosol around your baseboards, window frames, door frames, places where cables pipes and wires may enter into the structure and other places where crickets may enter or harbor within the structure. Since you live in a state that heavily restricts most insecticides, you are very limited on what you can purchase to use outdoors for barrier control. Niban does do a good job, but it must be re-applied after heavy rainfall to remain effective.
QIs D-Force safe to use around pets? Once the product dries, will it pose any risk to my dog?
AYes D-Force is safe to use around pets as long as you follow the product label. Pets and people need to be out of the room while the product is being applied and can safely return as soon as it is dry.
QYou recommend BedLam over D-Force HPX for bedbugs, but can D-Force HPX be used in combination with BedLam without diminishing the efficacy of the two products?
AYes, you can use both Bedlam and D-Force HPX in your bedbug treatment program. Since neither product is a "non-repellent", there is no worry about diminishing the efficacy by using them together. We usually suggest Bedlam for bedbug treatments because it is labeled to be applied to many sensitive areas that other insecticides are not and because it is known to kill all stages of bedbugs including the eggs.
QHow long does it take D-Force HPX to dry?
AD Force HPX Aerosol will usually dry within 20 minutes after application. Most professional companies will give a time frame of 30 minutes just to be safe. It dries rather quickly though and then it is perfectly safe to allow people and pets back into the area.
