Liquid insecticides represent a large segment of insecticides and there are many different kinds and formulas you can use to get rid of insect pests. Make sure you have done your research before you choose the product for your pest. Some liquid insecticides work better and last longer than others, but are more expensive as well. Also, some insecticides are for targeting specific pests, while others are for killing general kinds of insects.
There are different classifications of liquids. The type of liquid insecticides we carry must all be diluted or dissolved in water and applied with a sprayer, but there are others available, such as granular insecticides. Both have their advantages for insect control.
See our General Exterior Insecticide Spray Treatment Guide to learn how to do your own exterior insecticide application around your home. This application is one of the easiest for homeowners to do themselves and will help control most insect pests in and around your home.

Some other common uses of liquid insecticides include:
Systemic insecticides are usually found in liquid form. A plant absorbs this chemical where it is moved throughout the plant’s tissue. Target pests (sap suckers like mites and scales, for example) ingest the chemical along with plant’s tissues.
Pyrethrin insecticides are a very popular choice for organic gardeners or those who are less enthusiastic about using caustic chemicals in their yards, and are commonly found in liquid formulations. They are derived from the chrysanthemum plant and can be synthetic or natural and can control a wide variety of pests. While they come from natural ingredients, they can still be toxic so always use caution.
Organic, pet-safe, natural insecticides can be found in liquid form. While they may not non-toxic, they can have a very low level of toxicity and can be used more safely around pets and children.
