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.

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.
- Shake container of Onslaught Insecticide before diluting. Clean spray equipment before use.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
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 for Ornamental Trees & 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 for Lawns & Turf-grass: 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.

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.

Highly effective, very economical and long lasting
By Sean in Arizona on 05/07/2010
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.

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!

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.

Onslaught Really Works
By Paula in Shiner, Texas on 05/17/2010
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.
By Mike in cressona pa on 08/14/2017
Two new kittens spread fleas thru the house before we realized it. Been using the Nyguard IGR mixed with Onslaught to spray our carpets once a week. After two applications it knocked them back pretty good. Just did a third application after a flea jumped on me from our basement. Must spray all the areas each time then give the cats a CAP Guard pill. Hopefully the third time is a charm.
Fantastic Onslaught Insecticide
By Chris in Rochester, Pennsylvania on 08/10/2017
This product is awesome!!! Do not waste your time on these companies that charge $400-$500 a season which is 3-4 months out of the year. This product does the exact same thing as those expensive companies. One spray every month or two does the trick and you can not beat the price. Onslaught, you are a keeper!!!
By Robert in Texas on 08/03/2017
Works wonderfully! I put a barrier of spray around the house, no more insects. Works very well on fire ants.
BROAD SPECTRUM KILLER!
By Bob in Goldthwaite Texas on 07/05/2017
Onslaught certainly stopped the bugs invading my hay shed. I was disappointed in the fact that it did nothing to carpenter ants.....they are ruining my hay patch. The jury is still out on how effective it is at my beach house controlling mosquitos and fire ants in the lawn. Not sure I like it anymore that I do Bifen IT, which I have had great results with.
Works on midges
By Dale in Hudsonville on 06/30/2017
Sprayed 2 gals in crevasses along my seawall and on the lawn nearby, in cracks on the posts that hold up my back yard deck (walkout basement), and in the joints of the cement patio on the back of the house. No more no-see-um bites. Started with 1 oz/gal per directions, no ready to re-treat after 2 weeks at 0.5 oz/gal.

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.
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.

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.
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.
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).

QCan onslaught be used on bare floors?
I want to use onslaught indoors against bird mites. Under the usage instructions it sounds like it can be sprayed on bare floors. I would want to spray it all over my bare floors and walls and carpet but I go barefooted a lot, so would this be a problem?
AYes, you can safely and effectively spray Onslaught Insecticide indoors as a floor broadcast for bird mites. Be sure to allow the floors to fully dry. Once the treated area is fully dry you may re-enter the treated area with bare feet safely.

QWhat else can I do for flea control if Onslaught is not working with or without Precor?
I have sprayed the house 4 times with Onslaught (once mixed with Precor) and still getting covered by fleas. The house has no carpet, no animals, no one living in it and after spraying 4 times I still can't get the fleas under control. Please let me know what I should do or use.
A First and foremost it's important to make sure to get the insect identified to make sure you really are dealing with fleas. Make sure you are spraying every 14 days, no sooner and no later than that, for best results. Also, even though there's no carpet, make sure you are following up by vacuuming the treated areas or sweeping every day or as often as possible. Use 0.5 oz of Onslaught Insecticide to a gallon of water + an ounce of Precor IGR with each treatment. Another thing that you need to do once you have the insect identified, is treat the yard. Also, have the home inspected for possible dead rodents especially if there is a crawl space. Please read over our How to Get Rid of Fleas article for more tips and information.

QWon't rat mites eventually die out if the rats are no longer in the attic or basement?
Since in order to reproduce they need rat blood.....
A Rodent mites may feed on humans if unable to find a rodent host, but they will evenually die off as they cannot reproduce without that host. †That is why finding and eliminating the source is the first step in treatment.

QWhat do you recommend for treatment of Powderpost Beetles in NY state?
Is Onslaught or borate based products the best product to treat for Powderpost Beetles? How long is each effective?
A We do have Nibor D, from the same manufacturer as Boracare, which could be applied as a dust, spray, or foam. You would drill into the wood and inject the spray, dust, or foam into the places where we see activity.

QDoes Onslaught kill chiggers?
If not, do you carry another product that will?
A Onslaught†is a great product for chigger control. Treatments for chiggers should begin in April/May and could need to continue through the summer as new chiggers move into the area. Treating the entire lawn is of little benefit because chiggers avoid direct sunlight and normally will not infest areas that are mowed or otherwise well maintained. Focus treatment on the unkept areas of the lawn and lawn edge. You can also use†Onslaught†to do a barrier treatment around the outside of your home and in your crawl space to stop pests from moving indoors.

QHow fast does Onslaught kill bed bugs?
A The time in which Onslaught and most other residual insecticides kills a bedbug or any other pest is a large variable. It depends on how recently the product was sprayed, the dosage rate used on the label, how healthy or mature the bedbug was, and how long it spent on the treated surface to pick up product on its body. All of these factors play into the time of death of an insect which could be anywhere from minutes after getting the product on them, to a day or so for complete death of the individual insect. Bed bug treatments in total normally take a mininum of 4-5 treatments about every 7-10 days or until you can go 30 days consecutively with no bites or signs of live bed bugs.†

QWill Onslaught need to be applied more often in a consistently rainy area?
We are in the Pacific Northwest and get rain almost daily. Is there a better option for rainy areas? Using it outdoors only, around home perimeter and flower/grass areas, and trying to kill mosquitoes, spiders, gnats, flies, wasps, etc.
A Onslaught can last up to 60 to 90 days on outside surfaces but it can be applied as often as every 7 days if needed. †Generally most people apply once a month and it is still effective in rainy areas.
