The best for those nasty caterpillars
By Tracy in Ft. Lauderdale, FL on May 14, 2011
I love this stuff. I had issues with caterpillars eating my Oleanders but not any more. This stuff is great! It also keeps my house ant free, a real feat in S. Florida.

It seems they changed the formulations "inert ingredients". From long ago, as I recall, it could be used as a flea dip no more.

I ordered this and it seems to have worked fine for me, I don't see any Carpenter Bees anymore, and it has cut back the amount of Horseflies and Mosquitoes.

Kills literally all insects and stays in ground for termite control, and best part is safe for humans and kids and all other mammals. mix an ounce with a gallon and that is plenty to kill all insects. I have been using this stuff for almost a decade, and I haven't come close to using the gallon yet, not even half. A little goes a long way............ Only a small flower smell too, this is very refreshing and safe. Will kill fish, so don't use near ponds.

The use of Dragnet SFR
By Christi in Stockton on October 15, 2012
Last year I used this product and it worked. Now I don't know if it was also in combination with the Applecider Vinegar that I had put on the lawn 2 weeks before that helped to kill a massive infestation of fleas, but we have not had a problem again till a month ago, so I reordered this product... this time it did not work, so I suggest that if you're gonna work with this product, also use the Applecider Vinegar with it.

March 31, 2010Mike asked:
QHow do I get rid of pine beetles?
AUnfortunately, there is no easy solution when it comes to pine beetles. Infected trees should be cut down (before the newly hatched beetles fly out of the trees in the spring/summer) and the wood burned or chipped, while other still healthy trees should be sprayed annually to protect them. Because of the natural boring behavior of the beetle they are protected from topically applied insecticides and systemic insecticides (those injected into the tree or applied as a root drench) have proven ineffective for pine beetle infestations. Healthy trees can be protected before the beetles attack by topically spraying them with a product called Dragnet. The tree should be sprayed from the ground to 15 ft up the trunk to prevent future infestations.

QHow long is Dragnet SFR effective against treating fleas indoors?
I have called the exterminator twice within the span of about 2 weeks to treat fleas indoors. I was wondering if it doesn't last long, or does it just kill the fleas that are on the ground at the time...My dog is on a topical monthly flea treatment, but she seems to get bitten as soon as she comes back into our home despite having the place sprayed twice with the product...Any answers will be helpful. Thank you
ADragnet SFR does have a residual but it is not typically very long. Only a few weeks. However, the bigger issue is if the company did not use an IGR, which is an insect growth regulator. IGR's are essential when treating fleas because it prevents them from reproducing and laying more eggs. Also, Dragnet SFR will not kill flea eggs, so when the company comes to spray they are probably killing some of the adults but not any eggs. So after they leave and over the next few weeks you have new flea eggs hatching. This is why our indoor flea kit comes with an easy to use aerosol can with flea killer and IGR in one can. Also, you should be vacuuming thoroughly before the flea treatment and then you need to treat exactly 14 days later since flea eggs hatch every 2 weeks.
July 25, 2010Cesar asked:
QI applied Dragnet SFR two weeks ago to my lawn for fleas, mosquitoes and chinch bugs. Should I reapply?
I also applied Archer IGR two weeks ago, should I reapply on lawn once again? What do you recommend?
AYes, you should reapply to continue seeing the results. Dragnet SFR and Archer IGR typically will only have about a two week residual in direct sunlight. If your lawn is in sunlight during the day, then you should definitely reapply the products. Also, it is recommended to treat every 14 days anyways when treating for fleas.

November 14, 2011Anita from Conception Bay South, Nl Canada asked:
QDo you need to use an IGR with Dragnet? If so can it be mixed together or does it have to be done separately?
ADragnet SFR can be mixed with Insect Growth Regulators (IGR) with no problem. You do not have to mix IGRs with Dragnet unless the pest you are treating requires you to do so.

QDoes Dragnet SFR prevent pine beetles from infecting healthy trees?
I have a pine tree infested with pine beetles. The three pines around it are still healthy and do not have beetles. My tree guy said to spray Dragnet 15 feet up the healthy trees to prevent the beetles from migrating. Have you heard of using the product in this way? Do you know if it works?
AYour tree guy was correct. Using a permethrin based product such as Dragnet sprayed from the base up to 15 ft up the trunk is the recommended preventative treatment. You should contact your local cooperative extension office and speak to the master gardener on staff to find out the best time to start spraying in your region.

April 1, 2013Pam from Jacksonville, Florida asked:
QCan you use Dragnet with a hose end sprayer and which one do you recommend? What setting would you use?
AYou could use a hose end sprayer to apply Dragnet outdoors for flea control. We of course would recommend the hose end sprayer that we carry and it will be set on the .80 fl oz per gallon of water setting. We carry the Chapin Hose End Sprayer 6004. We carry this hose end sprayer because it is so easy to use.
