How Onslaught Works
Onslaught is a milky insecticide concentrate made for dilution with water and application with hand or power sprayers. Onslaught contains a versatile active ingredient, Esfenvalerate, that is microencapsulated for superior residual and knockdown. Esfenvalerate is a synthetic pyrethroid, a man-made insecticide created to mimic the chemical properties of naturally occurring pyrethrins.
Onslaught also has the advantage of microencapsulation, meaning the product is a concentrated suspension with millions of tiny capsules containing the active ingredient. When insects come into contact with the spray or residual left from applying Onslaught, they pick up the tiny capsules on the hairs of their legs and bodies, and the esfenvalerate attacks the central nervous system of the insects, causing paralysis and eventual death.

Target Uses of Onslaught Insecticide
Onslaught Microencapsulated Insecticide is designed to provide long residual activity against pests listed on this label when applied as surface or spot treatments, injected into wall voids, or as a crack and crevice spray in and around residential and commercial structures, as well as on turf and landscaping. Onslaught Microencapsulated Insecticide may be sprayed on any surface that will not be stained by water. Labeled for over 200 insect pests, Onslaught is always a great place to start when looking for a residual insecticide concentrate.
Onslaught is an excellent broad-spectrum insecticide concentrate for use in general pest control applications such as quarterly preventative treatments. Because of the microencapsulation, Onslaught is a great choice for larger, tougher pests such as scorpions, roaches, or spiders. Onslaught also offers great control of flying and stinging insect such as mosquitoes and overwintering pests like boxelder bugs. Microencapsulation also means Onslaught performs well on porous surfaces like concrete without the visible residue of wettable powders.
Onslaught also won’t harm turf and ornamentals and is appropriate for dozens of these pests. Use Onslaught even in livestock facilities such as dairy barns, poultry houses, and horse barns (do not use on animals).
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Esfenvalerate 6.4%
Onslaught is designed to provide long residual activity against listed pests when applied as surface or spot treatments, injected into wall voids, or as a crack and crevice spray in and around residential and commercial structures, as well as on turf and landscaping. DO NOT use as a fogger or space spray.
Onslaught should be mixed with water and applied with hand pressurized or power operated sprayers.
1. Shake container of Onslaught Insecticide before diluting. Clean spray equipment before use.
2. For dilution, add approximately half the required water to spray tank and then add the appropriate amount of insecticide. Agitate and slowly add the remaining water. 3. Agitate spray thoroughly before using and also occasionally during use to ensure dispersion.
If spray filter screens are used, they should be 50 mesh or larger.
4. Apply two-second bursts of spray per square foot of area being treated. Avoid excessive application. Dampen surfaces but not to the point of saturation or run-off.
Always read the product label completely before use.
Each 16 oz. bottle makes 8-16 gallons of finished solution.
Standard Application Dilution Rates / Mixing Ratios:
*0.5 fl. oz. (15 mL)/gal. of water – 0.025% a.i. – Light infestations, maintenance, flying insects, ticks, fleas, lice and bed bugs indoors
*1.0 fl. oz. (30 mL)/gal. of water – 0.05% a.i. – Heavy infestations, initial cleanout, stinging insects
*0.1 to 1.0 fl. oz. per 1,000 sq. ft. – Ornamental trees and landscapes, lawns and turf – Use sufficient water to cover area.
*1 gallon of finished solution covers approximately 1,000 square feet.
For use in the following areas:
Indoors and outdoors, in food and non-food areas such as, but not limited to: homes, schools, warehouses, office buildings, apartment buildings, theatres, hotels, industrial buildings, motels, kennels, livestock housing, food processing plants, food service establishments, restaurants, supermarkets and grocery stores, transportation equipment, truck trailers, railroad cars, and food manufacturing and warehousing establishments. Food processing/handling establishments include but are not limited to: restaurants, meat processing plants, grocery stores, bakeries, food manufacturing and processing establishments, and food warehousing establishments. Also for use on backyards, lawns, trees, ornamental landscaping, recreational areas, parks and athletic fields.
Crawling Pests: Apply as a coarse, wet spray to surfaces where these pests are normally found. Treat floors, baseboards, around doors and windows, in attics, crawl spaces, eaves, corners, closets, walls, utility pipes, storage areas, and all cracks and crevices. Treat underneath sinks, dishwashers, refrigerators, stoves, the underside of shelves, drawers, cabinets, areas behind pipes, and in all places where these insects shelter. Contact as many insects as possible with direct spray. Repeat applications as needed, but do not exceed more than one application every seven days.
Fleas: Thoroughly apply as a fine particle broadcast spray to infested rugs, carpets, and pet resting areas. Prior to treatment, aquariums and fish bowls should be covered, and pet animals should be removed from the area being treated. Do not permit humans or pets to contact treated surfaces until spray has dried. Old pet bedding should be removed and replaced with clean, fresh bedding after treatment. DO NOT SPRAY PETS WITH THIS PRODUCT. Treat dogs and cats with a product registered for use on animals.
Bed Bugs: Thoroughly clean and sanitize mattresses and box springs. Treat mattresses and box springs with an approved pesticide, such as a pyrethrin aerosol. Apply Onslaught as a spot treatment to potential harborage sites and migration paths, and cracks and crevices, around baseboards, floorboards, head-boards, and walls. Not recommended as the sole treatment for bed bugs.
Other than applications to building foundations, all outdoor applications to impervious surfaces such as sidewalks, driveways, patios, porches and structural surfaces (such as windows, doors, and eaves) are limited to spot and crack-and-crevices applications, only.
Exterior walls, foundations, and structures: To control infestations of listed pests, treat exterior surfaces of buildings, walls, window frames, around garbage cans, eaves, cracks and crevices, porches, decks, gazebos, patios, carports, garages, fence lines, and other areas where pests are active or may be hiding.
To help prevent insect infestation of buildings: Treat a 2 to 6 foot band of soil or other substrate adjacent to buildings. Treat building foundation to a height of 2 to 3 feet. Treat exterior walls, eaves, cracks and crevices, and other areas where listed pests are active, and may find entrance into building.
Apply with sufficient water to adequately cover the area being treated, but do not allow dripping or run-off to occur. Alternate mixing directions are to use 2 to 4 fluid ounces of concentrate per 50 gallons of water.
Insect control in ornamental trees and landscapes: For residential and commercial trees, shrubs, ground covers, and bedding and foliage plants that will not be harvested for food, apply Onslaught in appropriate volumes of water to obtain thorough coverage. Apply as a full-coverage foliar spray, applying to the point of drip but not runoff. Treat active soil pests with an application to surrounding soil. Repeat treatments as necessary to achieve control, using higher application rates as pest pressure and foliage area increases. Repeat applications as necessary, but no more than once every seven days. Certain plants may be sensitive to the final spray solution. A small-scale test is recommended to verify safety to ornamental plants. Spray and observe for one week prior to application of an entire planting.
Insect control on lawns, turf grass and turf: For best results, lawn or turf grass should be mowed 1 to 2 days before spraying. Treat with spraying equipment or a hand sprayer. Use application volumes of up to 10 gallons per 1,000 square feet to get uniform coverage when treating dense grass foliage. For low volume applications using less than 2 gallons of spray solution per 1,000 square feet, immediate irrigation with at least 0.25 inches of water is recommended to improve effectiveness on sub-surface pests. When hand spraying, spray using a slow, even sweeping motion, making sure to cover the entire lawn or turf grass area where pests are observed. Spray under ornamentals and trees. Repeat treatments may be necessary at 7 to 14 day intervals. Use 1 fl. oz. per 1,000 sq. ft. for mole crickets and chinch bugs.

Highly effective, very economical and long lasting
By Sean on May 7, 2010
No odor, and non-staining, leaves no visible film or residue. When mixed and applied at the suggested rates, you get what the manufacturer promises: THREE months of highly effective pest control. It is apparently U.V. resistant, as we are in Arizona, and still get three months out of a single application. For reference, we are using this product for the control of: SCORPIONS, FIRE ANTS, BLISTER BEETLES, and EARWIGS.

We had a very noticeable knockdown from whatever type of mites we have been fighting using this product. I used it in my car even and have not had anything work this good and the house is so much better. Second application will go down this weekend-I am encouraged! After using many other insecticides this has worked best for us. We just followed direction on the bottle.

Onslaught is exactly as advertised. Works great on bed bugs. Follow all instructions on this product and it will take care of those pests. It beats paying Orkin $1,500 bucks to take care of something you could do yourself for $70. Also be careful of old furniture you bring into your house. No telling what kind of infestation that might be hiding inside it!

Onslaught Really Works
By Paula on May 17, 2010
Easy application. I did have a bit of a problem getting the liquid into the left side of the container (measuring unit). We love the fact that it is micro-encapsulated. We sprayed around our home, under our home and in the yard. Absolutely no odor! It has been two weeks and we just had several inches of rain so I an curious to see if the product will still slow release. So far, we are extremely satisfied. The main reason for spraying was scorpions. We haven't seen one since spraying.

What can I say Great product!! Ants DEAD! Spiders Dead! Wasps Dead! And the best is Carpenter Bees DEAD DEAD DEAD!! I made a light mix for inside the house and the trees and shrubs, and a heaver mix for spraying the outside of the house. All my plant life is safe and green and we have not seen any types of insects in any of the treated areas in or outside the house.

We thought it worked very well, we went through a pound of ground turkey a day for 4 days and then it slowed down and so did the wasps, it seemed to take out about 80% of them but we had them really bad this year, we used 3/8 tsp. instead after a couple of days and they still took it. We had to get these guys under controll I am allergic to them and couldn't go out side. We put the meat in cat carrers on the ground and kept our animals safe and it was just a ball of yellow jackets around the cage. We are very happy with the results Thank you.......

Fighting for chiggers
August 27, 2013
I received this product in good order. I am not sure if it is working or not. I verified it works to control chiggers. I believe I applied it correclty. But there is no way to really know if it worked. I am not sitting in the grass any more. I plan to apply another application in September. We are getting bit by chiggers less. So that's a good sign and hopefully caused by the use of Onslaught.

Product worked well on 'no seeums'. But be careful when applying.....caused allergic reaction in dog after applying to bed and after allowing ample time to dry. Also, ensure very careful handling if spraying on furniture....do not allow to come in contact with skin.....strong irritation and itchiness even after it dries.

Fleas Gone in Garage
June 15, 2013
I used Onslaught after trying Conquer and Zenprox in my garage. This was the only product that kept the fleas away for 1 month + without re-application. I mixed with Precor and Nygard because the 2 IGRs work on different stages of flea lifecycle

Been great so far
By A. on April 11, 2013
We had an infestation of Box Elder bugs and the normal herbicides I could buy locally did nothing. I used onslaught last week at the recommended levels spraying around the perimeter of the house both inside and out and haven't seen a single bug since. Not a single one! Will have to wait and see how long it holds up but I won't complain a bit if I need to reapply in a month. Just as an FYI: I live in the country and am surrounded by a forest preserve and bugs have always been an issue. I think I may have found the answer I've been looking for!

February 18, 2011 Mat asked:
QWhy is Onslaught so much more than others like Bifen and Conquer?
I did my research on the insecticide portion of my planned flea control program (will be mixing with an IGR). What does the Onslaught offer that products like Bifen, Conquer and Demise do not? The significantly higher price tag must be due to some increased benefits.
A Each of the products you mentioned have different active ingredients, or different formulations and different manufacturers. So that we are comparing apples to apples, we will compare Onslaught and Conquer which both have the same active ingredient, Esfenvalerate and both are sold in pint size bottles. Conquer contains 3.48% of the active ingredient and Onslaught contains 6.40% of the active ingredient. You will use 1 ounce of Conquer to make 1 gallon of finished solution for flea control while you will only use .5 of Onslaught to make one finished gallon of solution for flea control. Conquer is labeled for about 50 insects, Onslaught is labeled for about 200. Onslaught also has the benefit of being micro-encapsulated which makes it safer to use indoors and makes it last longer outdoors. Bifen is not a good choice for indoor flea control because it cannot be used over carpeting or on furniture It can only be used in cracks and crevices around the perimeter of the room. Demize EC is a great product, which offers a fast knockdown but it does not offer any residual control and it can only be used indoors.

November 1, 2009 Sterling asked:
QWill Onslaught kill bird mites? Nothing else seems to get rid of them.
AOnslaught will kill bird mites, but the problem with bird mites is finding the breeding source. Onslaught may provide some relief, however many times mites will breed under carpet or in wall voids, where you cannot spray. This is why treating for mites is very difficult and usually requires multiple products and lots of vacuuming.
August 26, 2010 Debi asked:
QWill Onslaught continue to kill black widow and brown recluse spiders even after it has dried?
AYes. Onslaught will leave a long lasting residual that will continue to kill spiders for a month or more. Onslaught will also help get rid of the insects that spiders feed upon which helps to prevent new spiders from moving in.
March 8, 2010 James asked:
QIs it safe to use a full ounce of Onslaught one week after application?
I have recently sprayed Onslaught in my apartment twice for bird mites at 1/2 ounces per gal. each time with about 8 days in between with Gentrol the first time. Is it safe for me to use a full ounce next after another week?
AAccording to the Onslaught Product Label, you can use Onslaught at the "heavy infestation" rate of 1 ounce per gallon of water every seven days. Gentrol is not labeled for mites and therefore is not recommended for bird mite infestations.
July 14, 2010 Aurore asked:
QShould I use Onslaught or Demand for bird mites?
If I use Onslaught and Nylar for bird mites, it should be a good combination? How often should I treat? Can I treat a whole carpeted area and furniture? And of course, I know to do lots of vacuuming!
AYes, lots of vacuuming is required! We recommend Onslaught for bird mite control because it is labeled to spray over carpeted areas. You should not treat more than one time per month. We recommend using Sterifab for upholstered furniture such as couches and chairs. We really cannot recommend the Nylar IGR for bird mites because it is not labeled for this type of insect.

Gretchen from Portland, Or asked:
QJust moved to OR and need a good general pest control solution for my home.
Don't care about being "green", just want them dead and out of my house! Have seen a couple of bugs in kitchen and one in the bathroom, I have no idea what they are (bathroom one looked beetle-ish). I have a 16 month old baby and two chihuahuas and need to be able to spray around them.
Without knowing exactly what you are treating for, it is hard for us to make a product recommendation that will fit your specific needs. We do carry a product called Onslaught and it is widely used for general pest control and is labeled for over 200 different insects. You will mix and apply according to the product label instructions when the children and dogs are not in the area. Once it is dried completely, they can re-enter the treated areas. Please read the product label for mixing and application instructions. Please click on the link below for the contact information to your local cooperative extension office for a pest identification. http://www.csrees.usda.gov/Extension/

Jamie from Tehachapi, Ca asked:
QCan Onslaught Fastcap be mixed with Talstar P or does this make the two products less effective
A These products should not be mixed together. There is no valid reason to mix Onslaught FastCap and Talstar P together. They are both synthetic pyrethroids so there would be nothing to gain by mixing these products together. Making a pesticide too strong can actually backfire. Areas that are treated with this overly concentrated spray will be repellent and insects will simply avoid the treated areas prolonging the infestation

Erin from Tampa, Fl asked:
QIs Onslaught good for outdoor moths? And is it safe for my family once dried
We have an abundance of moths around our front porch and yard. I can't find their nests, there are too many. We need a solution that is effective and not going to be too messy around the front door and porch.
A Onslaught has the broadest label for any insecticide and will pretty much kill whatever lands on a treated surface. Once dried Onslaught is safe to be around for pets and children as long as it is applied following the product label.
November 13, 2013 Tee asked:
QIs Onslaught suitable for Mold mites in bedroom?
In the past few weeks my bedroom has been invaded by mold mites. Do you think Onslaught would be the best solution? l need something which can be sprayed over the carpet but I'm also concerned about spraying and breathing an insecticide in my tiny bedroom (only 6x7ft). I now have a dehumidifier but would you recommend this product for such an application along with steri fab?
Mold mites only develop where there is moisture or high humidity. The first step should be to eliminate humidity or moisture that is producing favorable conditions for molds and mites. The term mold mites commonly includes the cheese mite, flour mite, and grain mite which can infest stored food and grain, so finding them in your bedroom could mean that you are dealing with a different type of pest. It is important to be absolutely sure you are actually dealing with mites and the type of mite. Have the suspected mite identified by a reputable source, such as your local cooperative extension office or a reputable pest control operator. Onslaught is labeled for "mites" in general but different pests will require different treatments. Sterifab would be a great supplemental contact kill insecticide that can be applied to a wide variety of areas including furniture, mattresses, clothes, etc.

Chuck from Alba Tx asked:
QI have mites, have them for a few years, what do you recommend, I use Suspend SC
I can not see them or catch them, they craw on me and bite at times and at times go for my eyes, they like my feet at times. Suspend works a little but they keep coming back, and I have tried everything you can think of even moving. I have not talked to you for a few years and thought maybe you have found something that works better than suspend.
A It is important to be absolutely sure you are actually dealing with mites. Have the suspected bird mite identified by a reputable source, such as your local cooperative extension office or a reputable pest control operator. Treatments will vary for different pests. Treatment for say bedbugs is much different than the treatment for bird mites. Removal of the infested nest or bird and a thorough cleanup is necessary. For treatment in the home, we recommend you frequently vacuum all carpet and upholstery and dispose of the bag or vacuum contents in a sealed bag outdoors. Spray Sterifab on couches, chairs and other upholstered furniture where you may spend time resting. Use MotherEarth Dust in all cracks and crevices around the perimeter of the room. Apply a thin coat of MotherEarth dust to rugs and carpets. Rake (not sweep) nap back and forth, causing dust to enter rug or carpet. Let product sit overnight. Repeat application as necessary and vacuum every 3 - 4 days for effective control. MotherEarth Dust does not have a fast knockdown, it can take several days for insects to die after they contact the dust. Onslaught can be used for a faster knockdown. Thoroughly apply as a fine particle broadcast spray using a hand pump sprayer to infested rugs and carpets and other cracks and crevices around the perimeter of each room. Put all clothes through the dryer on high heat to help kill mites and their eggs.We have had many customers use the above recommendations with great success. Most customers report that it can take several months to get rid of all of the mites. Finding and removing the source of the infestation is very important and is the key to getting rid of the mites for good.

Onslaught will only kill the leaf cutter ants that come incontact with the treated areas. Leaf cutter ants can have very large colonies, making it difficult to eliminate. We recommend using Maxforce Complete Granular Bait. Maxforce Complete contains hydramethylnon which is effective, though they will usually eliminate only about 30% of a large colony in one treatment and will need to be reapplied several times. Deltagard granules would also be a recommended product. The product label recommends treating the mound directly and lightly watering the granules in.

Rick from Ny asked:
Qis there a liquid product I can use in a hose applicator to kill yellow jackets?
A Onslaught is a great product for control of yellow jackets. You could apply it via a hose-end sprayer. It should be diluted 1oz per gallon of water. Another great way to treat for yellow jackets is by applying an insecticidal dust such as Tempo to their nest. Night time is the best time to treat because that is when yellow jackets are less active.

Forrest from Elk, Wa. asked:
QWhat is the approximate cycle time for Onslaught to defeat the yellowjacket nest?
I mixed three 12 oz batches of Onslaught yesterday. That is 36 ounces and this morning it is all gone. Yes, I have a serious yellowjacket problem. How long before I see an interruption in the hatch cycle and at what approximate interval should I keep rebaiting?
A It can take several weeks for the entire colony to be completely eliminated from the baiting. Give it at least a week before you put more bait out, and make sure you are placing the bait in a place where other animals are not getting access to it and making it seem like it's going faster than it should be even with a heavy yellow jacket population. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
