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 in Arizona 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 in Shiner, Texas 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.

DID NOT WORK
By Richard in 29 palms, CA on December 1, 2014
This product did not work at all for us even though I followed the directions COMPLETELY. I am VERY disappointed with the results as it was money just thrown away! After 2 applications, 2 days apart the pests are still around and thriving!

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.
December 30, 2010 Travis asked:
QWill Onslaught kill wolf spiders?
These spider's seem to be every where. In the year and a half that me and my wife have lived in the home we have found or killed over 200. Not that I'm actually keeping count but it seems every day I go into the basement there is a new one laying somewhere. I have also killed many in our yard while mowing. They are becoming rather large and I can see them going over twigs and see the grass moving as I mow. I bought a product at Walmart last summer and it seemed to help, I sprayed around the baseboards and the spiders didn't make it 4 inchs away before they were dead. But I can't seem to stop them from getting into my house. Will onslaught help or what product do I need?
AGenerally speaking, Onslaught will kill wolf spiders, but it does not offer a fast knockdown. Onslaught is micro-encapsulated and can take several hours to kill the spiders. We usually recommend Cyper WP because it offers a faster knockdown and the same residual as Onslaught and it can be used for indoor and outdoor spider control. The active ingredient in Cyper WP is cypermethrin, which is known to be one of the top choices for spider control. Spraying Cyper WP will also help to get rid of the insects that spiders feed on and that will help to stop new spiders from moving in. Indoors, spray around all baseboards, door frames, window frames, under appliances, in closets and storage rooms and in areas where utilities (cables, pipes, wires) enter into the structure. Outdoors you should spray around the bottom of the foundation, on the ground adjacent to the foundation, door frames, window frames and places where the utilities enter into the structure and any other place insects can harbor. We have included Cyper WP in our spider control kit, which also contains glue boards to help monitor the infestation (and help catch the spiders too).

Kevin from Hatfield, Wi asked:
QHow much Onslaught should I use?
Knats are bad. After reading the label I still am unsure how much spray solution to use on my lawn. I have about 4000 square feet. We live on a lake. I will be using a power sprayer. Thank you SO much! Kevin
A For gnats you want to mix 1 oz Onslaught with 1 gallon water. Be sure that you do not apply into the lake or areas that there may run off. Onslaught will harm aquatic life.

Kim from Brandsville, Mo asked:
QOnslaught is supposed to be safe for pets if used as directed. However dogs and cats are very different.
Cats groom their paws and coats, and ingest anything, such as a residue. I have rescued cats in my home, awaiting adoption. Unfortunately, my home is cedar plank and I have located three startling nests in the knot holes. Too bad these cats don't hunt birds. I now have to tear out the interior plank boards to access the nests. Is this product VERY safe for use around cats?
A If you are spraying Onslaught Insecticide indoors, we would recommend not spraying when any animal is in the room. Once the product has dried completely, it is safe for the animal(s) to return to the area. It will be safe for you to let your cats back into the area after the product has dried completely.
October 28, 2014
Barbara from Tyler, Texas asked:
QWhat dust should I use along with Onslaught for bird mites?
A We would recommend using Cimexa Dust for a Bird Mite infestation. CimeXa Dust is 100% Silica dust, is very safe, odorless, and will not stain. CimeXa Dust will last up to 10 years when applied to undisturbed areas like wall voids. It is very effective on a broad spectrum of different insects including Bird Mites. When pests come into contact with CimeXa, the product clings to their exoskeleton and absorbs the waxy coating, causing death from dehydration.

Annie from Sheboygan Wi. 53081 asked:
QHow many sq. ft. does on 16 oz. bottle of Onslaught cover?
I have bird mites & don't see that on your list. If you think this will work please let me know & how much I need for a 1800sq ft home. Do I need to do the attic? Have no basement.
A Onslaught is mixed at 0.5-1 fluid ounce per gallon of water per 1,000 sq ft. The pint will make between 16-32 gallons of finished solution. It is important to be absolutely sure you are actually dealing with bird 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. 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.

Elm from Amarillo, Tx asked:
QWill Onslaught work on "noseeum's" and how do you apply it???
Onslaught is labeled for a wide variety of small flying insects including gnats, midges and other small biting flies and should help reduce the amount of noseeums on your property. Be sure to spray the areas where you have noticed the noseeums landing or resting as Onslaught will only eliminate those insects that land on treated areas. You want to dilute it 1oz per gallon of water.

Kim from Silvis Illinois asked:
QIn my home i have biting midges and tons of larva what would i use to kill larvae?
I have been using 565 plus xlo does great but i have so much larva in everything ,carpet, cabinets.,furniture i need something long lasting or what else can i use with the spray?
Biting midges do generally not enter structures, but midges are small enough to get through 16 mesh screens. Getting mesh screens with a higher number can keep these and other very tiny insects out of your home. Since non-biting midges are attracted to lights, draw your shades at night and wait as long as possible to turn on exterior lights to keep them away from your home. Onslaught is a liquid insecticide labeled for midges and can be used inside and outside the home. Spraying Onslaught on window screens, doors, bushes, and plants around your home can act as midge repellant to keep midges away. Inside the home we recommend thoroughly vacumming the entire home. Dispose of the contents immediately in trash bag and take outside. Apply 1oz of Onslaught per gallon of water 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. Continue to vacuum daily in between treatments.

Kathryn from Rancho Mirage Ca. asked:
QWhat do I need other than a regular spray bottle to spray Onslaught indoors in a room and in a garage and attic

A We would recommend using Onslaught Insecticide inside of a gallon pump sprayer. You will mix 0.5-1.0 fl. oz. per gallon of water and spray around the baseboards and cracks and crevices indoors. You will mix with 4 mL of NyGuard IGR inside the same pump sprayer as the Onslaught Insecticide. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
