Kills Yellow Jackets Instantly
By Christy in Erie, PA on 09/12/2012
This stuff is amazing. My husband bought ExciteR Insecticide and uses it with a pump sprayer. It's made of pyrethrum, a natural extract made from the crushed flowers of the African chrysanthemum. As soon as he sprays the nest the yellow jackets start dying. They drop all around his feet, and the ones that are alive act all dopey. They start falling soon after. You might have to spray two or three times to eliminate the entire infestation, but it works great. Best of all, YOU WON'T GET STUNG. My husband has sprayed 7 or 8 nests and never been stung once!

Exciter is awesome. I worked for a small pest control company when I was in high school and we used exciter and cynoff for roaches. I sprayed the small backyard apartment I lived in which was infested with roaches. Never saw another live one. Great product for initial kill but has a short residual. That's why it is good to mix with cynoff which has a 3 month residual. Which means you only have to apply every 3 months.

Mixed this product with Cynoff and sprayed 2 locations. Spiders got sprayed, took a couple of steps and fell off the wall. Yes worth the money!
By Shelia in Annapolis Maryland on 07/26/2016
I have been infested with carpet beetles for the last few months. What a nightmare of an experience. I added this to the insectide and it helped me with some immediate killing of bugs. A little relief until the other chemicals started working

Works as Advertised!
By Fischer in Woodridge, IL on 06/28/2016
I had been using just Mosquito Barrier (Natural Repellant) which was "ok" for clearing an afternoon BBQ some but when I mixed in ExciteR and Talstar, no more mosquitoes. It's been about three weeks and my wife and our two year old have been enjoying the outdoors almost every night since with not a single bite (Talstar is the residual product). I don't even see mosquitoes on our property. As a "gift" I offered to spray the neighbors on both sides... Knowing I treated all sides we have even less chance of carry over. I know it works because we went for a walk one night and got swarmed once we were only two houses away. Our property is mosquito free and I love it. Recommend wearing a full-face mask or respirator and goggles when spraying ExciteR or Talstar, long sleeves and gloves. Just for safety's sake.

Watch them dance
By Joe in ohio on 02/29/2016
I add this to various pesticides as a flushing agent and it works fantastic. Roaches and bed bugs do a little dance when they get hit. For the do it your selfers just know it has a oder and mask should be worn.

Good price, fast delivery, easy checkout. Very satisfied
Knocks them dead!
By Rick in Houston, Tx on 12/29/2015
I use it for bed bugs and roaches in a apt complex. Its a good quick kill but mix it with something like Suspend to get a lasting residual.
By Rick in Houston, Tx on 12/11/2015
I got this to use on bed bugs at our apartment complex, I mix it with Suspend which has a long residual, together it works great! usually one treatment does the job, sometimes two but that's ok it works! Cockroaches don't stand a chance, kicks their butt!
Killed dangerous wasps in seconds
By John in elgin, tx on 10/01/2015
Came back from a trip to find my house eves overrun with wasps. I had some nests that must have had 50 or more of the things! I was a bit nervous about cleaning them out because of the sheer numbers. This stuff did the job and I was safe. I used a backpack and projection sprayer so I can be well back from the nests and I just went around the house and bang bang bang cleared them all out. I followed up later with a longer duration spray that I got for our scorpion problem. Between the two I have no wasp problems on the deck or around the house at all.

QCan ExciteR be used with a micro encapsulated pesticide such as Cy-Kick CS and Bifenthrin?
AYes, ExciteR Insecticide can be used for that extra punch in any insecticide product that we carry. The only products you would not want to use ExciteR in are non-repellent products which of there are only two on our site, Termidor SC and Phantom.
QWhen can I wash off pyrethrin spray used on kitchen counter tops and floor?
the exterminator told me i couldn't wash the countertops or floor for 3 weeks in order to retain the insecticide's power to take down roaches. but it is so dirty and gross looking with the insecticide residue splattered over everything--i don't know if i can wait another 2 weeks before i am able to clean again. for now i have been using the stove top for food prep--which is very limiting also. so is it true--i really can't clean anything yet??
AWhile we will not comment on your exterminator's work, we will advise you on how pyrethrin sprays are usually used for roach control. Most pyrethrin sprays have wording like this on the product label "Remove or cover exposed food and cover foodhandling surfaces in edible product areas of food handling areas" or "Cover or remove all food processing surfaces. Thoroughly wash all food processing surfaces before reuse". Roach control sprays are usally applied directly into crack and crevices where roaches spend most of their time, not on surfaces where the roaches are unlikely to make direct contact. Also, while pyrethrin may irritate roaches for a couple of days after it has been applied, it is only likely to kill the roaches while it is wet.
QWhat is the shelf life of ExciteR/Kicker?
AAccording to the manufacturer, ExciteR can last for up to 5 years if stored out of direct sunlight and the top is sealed on tight.
QCan I combine ExciteR with TalstarP?
AAbsolutely. ExciteR can be applied to any product, including Talstar, to add an extra "kick", or knockdown of insects.
QWhat can I use to prevent Cicada Killers from nesting in my yard, year after year?
I have a terrible problem with Cicada Killers year after year. We can't seem to kill them no matter what we use (Sevin, etc). Will this product get rid of them? They get so bad in July, my mail person is afraid to deliver mail to the house.
ACicada Killer wasps thrive in disturbed environments, such as landscaped yards and places where bare soil is exposed. You can discourage the wasps from nesting in your yard by cutting your grass on the highest setting and by adding a thick layer of mulch to flower beds during the Cicada Killer Wasp season. These wasps do not like over saturated lawns either, so over watering during their season will help prevent them. Unfortunately, there is no fool proof way to prevent cicada killer wasps. For current infestations, you would need to use Delta dust in each individual burrow.
We also like to let our customers know that the Cicada Killer wasps are beneficial insects that provide free pest control for a couple months each year. Cicada killer wasps paralyze and provision their burrows with other insects to feed their young. The beneficial Cicada killer wasps, while large and intimidating to see, are mostly harmless and there have been very few reports of anyone getting stung by just being near them. In most cases where a sting was reported, the wasps were being held or molested in some way.

QDoes Exciter Insecticide work on bed bugs?
A Exciter Insecticide is used as an additive to make an insecticide work faster. We would not recommend this product being the sole product you are using for bed bugs because it does not provide any residual control, however it does offer fast kill of bed bugs and any other insect pests.†It would be a great additive to a product such as Temprid SC.

QIs ExciteR Insecticide a good choice for a concentrate to eliminate a wasp nest?
What spray that is in a concentrated form, not aerosol, would be best?
A There are not a lot of options that we typically recommend as a contact kill in a concentrated form that you would put in a pump sprayer. Most nest eliminating products would be in the form of an aerosol to kill that nest instantly. Or if the nest is in an eave of a home using a dust like Tempo 1% Dust is always a great way to get the wasps to carry the product back to the nest as well. For a contact kill only in a concentrated form, you would go with something like ExciteR Pyrethrin Concentrate. You could then follow up the nest areas around the home with a residual like Tempo SC Ultra or Cyonara 9.7 to help keep them from being a continuous problem throughout the season.

QWhen mixing 1 ounce of Talstar per gallon of water, how small of an amount of ExciteR Insecticide can I add for effective mosquito knockdown?
It is very expensive vs the talstar and I don't want to use any more than necessary.

QCan I use ExciteR in the Fog RX thermal fogger?
I have the Fog RX thermal fogger and used the ULD BP 300 with good results, however it's rather pricey. Would ExciteR be an alternative if I mix it with mine rail oil or kerosene? And if so, what ratio would be recommended?
AExciteR Insecticide can be used in a thermal fogger. It is recommended that ExicteR be mixed with an insecticide because it is a synergist. It is used to make a product work faster to kill insects. It can be used as a stand alone product for a quick knockdown as well. ExciteR Insecticide can be mixed with either water or oil. It should only be mixed with oil when being used in a thermal fogger. You will use 1 fl. oz. of ExciteR Insecticide in a gallon of oil or water.
QAre ExciteR and Archer IGR close to the same product?
AExciteR and Archer IGR are not the same type of product. ExciteR is a

QWill Exciter stain hardwood floors and if so what product will remove the stain
AExciter should not stain hardwood floors. With any chemical you want to test an inconspicuous area first.

QCan I use ExciteR to prevent bugs from eating persian carpet while in storage? If yes, how is it to be used?
AExciteR Insecticide with piperonyl butoxide (PBO) was designed with a pyrethroid pesticide to amplify the efficacy on pest insects. With other active ingredients an insect could possibly breakdown the pesticide before it is effective. Because of the potency of PBO smaller amount of pesticeds are needed for pest insect control. PBO allows ExciteR to provide immediate kill when spraying or fogging. We would recommend using this in conjunction with an insecticide, such as Suspend SC.

QCan Cy-Kick and ExciteR be mixed together for a more effective broadcast spray?
I know to obviously follow the label when mixing but do I use less product when mixing the 2 together? What would the ratio be when mixing the 2 together?
AExciteR can be mixed with any insecticide including Cy-Kick CS to give it a faster initial knockdown. You would follow the rates on each product labels, 1 to 2 oz Cy-kick CS per gallon of water, 1/4 to 1/4 fl. ounce of ExciteR per finished gallon.

QCan Exciter be added to Essentria IC3 to give it a longer residual or will it just give IC3 a little more punc?
AYes, Exciter can be mixed with any insecticide to add an extra "kick", or knockdown of insects only. It will not extend the residual of them.
