HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE PHANTOM TO MAKE A NOTICEABLE DIFFERENCE ON INDOOR SPRAYING?
I SPRAYED 4 DAYS AGO ATTEMPTING TO ELIMINATE A GERMAN ROACH PROBLEM. I USED PHANTOM MIXED WITH GENTROL IGR CONCETRATE. I MIXED IT TO THE RECOMENDED LEVELS.
Phantom can take up to two weeks to actually kill bugs after they come into contact with treated surfaces. Phantom offers a delayed kill that gives insects time to get back to the nest and infect other insects with the insecticide. Phantom is also a non-repellent insecticide which means that sensitive insects like roaches can not tell that it is there and they readily cross over the treatment area. Roach treatments should be done every 4 weeks until you do not see any more roach activity. Most people do end up doing between 3-5 treatments. We would also recommend incorporating an IGR (insect growth regulator) such as Gentrol IGR to stop the reproductive cycle of the roaches. Roaches exposed to the Gentrol IGR will become adults incapable of reproducing, thus ending the cycle of an infestation. You may mix Phantom with the Gentrol IGR with a gallon of water to perform the application of both products at the same time.
