Is Exponent a residual?
I was wondering if Exponent works as a residual with another insecticide like Onslaught for faster kill? Or does it work at the time of spraying only and not improve the residual effect of onslaught?
Exponent is not a residual. It is a contact kill product, or a "hot" product, meaning it adds a knock down punch to the product you add it to. It is typically used with products like Onslaught that have long residuals, but not fast knock down qualities when they are applied. Adding exponent will basically kill any insects that it touches when it is applied very quickly. Once dry, exponent does not leave a residual and will not kill anything after it dries and evaporates.
