By Hildegard on July 16, 2010
My yard had literally thousand of beetles this year. In my 50 years of gardening I never encountered any until last year. They loved the Crepe Myrtles, Virginia creeper, Pussy Willow, blooms on the Oak Hydrangea, and I even had them on the Echinacea petals and inside the Day lily blossoms. Permethrin SFR, just 10 cc per gallon of water had them eliminated within 2 days. There are just a few stragglers now and in the last few days. Doing it myself saved me much money, thank you for making it available to the private consumer. Directions must be followed to avoid damage to plants and/or pets. I had no unwanted results this way.

I ordered the Permethrin after a little online research. It worked very well. I have no signs of fire ants all along my fence line or any more of those crazy Rasberry Ants either.....all after one application. As for domyownpestcontrol.com, they shipped the product as advertised in a very timely manner. I will definitely do business with them again.

Great Value---Quick Shipping
By Jason on September 12, 2011
Bought for a tick infestation in Miami, Florida. Product is highly concentrated, so it's very economical for use with a hose sprayer for treating lawn. Seemed to be effective, particularly when combined with Preventic collars on the dogs. Ordering was easy and they shipped very quickly.

Great Insect Killer!
By John on May 1, 2013
I was having a problem with ants and other small insects. I sprayed around the baseboards with Permethrin SFR 36.8%-1 and the problem is solved. I would purchase it again.

Ticks and Fleas
By Aleon on April 21, 2013
Gets the job done. I started using this last year for ticks and fleas indoors and out. Used about 1oz to 5 gals-water mix for the yard and after four applications (just finished one bottle) using a "end hose sprayer" the ticks were gone and did not come back this year. Fleas are back, but I probably will have to spray every few weeks to get rid of them again which is expected as I have alley cats and dogs all around. I also dip my huskey with this after a regular bath using the same concentration and she's been real clean and happy since I started with this last year.
Permethrin SFR 36.8% - 1.25 Gallon
By Charles on April 20, 2013
Great price and fast delivery. I have used this product in the past from a different supplier and paid a higher price for less product. The concentrate is great for diluting in a yard sprayer and 1.25 gallons will last me for years.

Permethrin SFR 36.8% works
By J. on October 30, 2012
I bought Permethrin SFR 36.8% to treat Pine Beetle infestation in a 100+ ft pine tree and to protect others on our property. I followed the package instructions and it appears that the beetles were eliminated from the tree. But no insect spray can guarantee that the pine will not die from beetles. For us, it seems to have worked and cost substantially less than other insecticides.
By BJ on October 17, 2012
Great company to do business with. Good prices and fast delivery.
Does the job!
By James on September 28, 2012
Fast shipping. Arrived undamaged. Product was mixed in a pump up sprayer and applied. No strong odors, and by the next morning, crickets and spiders, and fleas wear all dead! Feet in the air.

I actually discoverd the ability of this product last year while struggling to overcome a sudden tick infestation. For years I had used granules around the house for control of both fleas, ticks and ants with pretty good success. However last season, 2011, the granules no longer seemed to control the ticks. And it did not take them long to get out of hand. When I found this product my problems were gone. I have a somewhat large area I need to control, so cost is a factor. With its relativly low app rate, Permethrin SFR, got the job done, in wet or dry weather, it provides great control of ticks, fleas, ants, grubs, mosquitoes, you name it does it for me. I will always be a user.

Sherri from Newport Beach, Ca. asked:
QWill Permethrin SFR kill black widow and brown recluse spiders? Is it safe for gardens, children, and pets?
will permethrin sfr get rid of black widows and brown widows or is there a better product for these spiders? Please tell me the dangers for small children, animals and an organic garden. Thank you
ABrown recluse spiders and black widow spiders share the same biology as every other species of spiders and are not any harder to kill than other spiders. Permethrin SFR is labeled for spiders and should do a great job in helping you eliminate spiders in and around your home. Permethrin SFR is safe around children and pets as long as they are kept out of the area during the application and they do not return to the area until it is dry. Permethrin SFR should not be used in an organic garden because it is a synthetic product and it is not labeled for use on most types of edible plants.
March 21, 2011 Dianne asked:
QWe have identified zimmerman pine moth, which is more effective the Permethrin or Bifenthrin?
ABoth permethrin and bifenthrin are synthetic pyrethroids and will provide very comparable results for zimmerman moths. Bifenthrin does tend to last a little longer than permethrin.
May 16, 2011 Nacho asked:
QCan I use Permethrin SFR on my dog? If so, how much product should I use per gallon of water?
I just got a 3 yr old pit bull and he has lots of ticks.
AYes, you can use Permethrin SFR on your dog. You should use ¼ fl. oz of product to 1¼ gallons water then thoroughly wet the animal to the skin with sponge or rag. Let drip dry. You can find these instructions on page 16 of the Permethrin SFR product label which we have linked in this answer for your convenience but is always available on the Permrthrin SFR product page.

Frankie from Olive Branch, Mississippi asked:
Qhow much permethrin sfr do i mix in a five gallon echo sprayer to kill pine beetle or borers

Jay from Pa asked:
Qdoes permethrin sfr really use 6+ oz to 1 gallon a t 2% like the label states?
also is there any downfall to using the produst at it strongest?
AIt really does take 6 2/3 fl oz per gallon of water to make the 2% dilution ratio. For most applications however you will only need to use the .5% dilution (1 2/3 fl oz per gallon water) for general use. The higher rate is normally used in places where folks are doing a termite treatment but cannot use a large volume of water. What will you be using the product for?

Kevin from West Salem asked:
QCan Permethrin SFR be used to control flies in and around calf huts and other barn areas?

APermethrin SFR can be used to help control flies in and around calf huts. Be sure to read the product label for the complete usage instructions.
July 11, 2012
Robert from Blue Bell, Pa asked:
QHow much Permethrin SFR do you add to a gallon of water for outside tick treatment on lawns?
AYou should use the higher usage rate for heavy infestations, faster knockdowns and longer lasting residuals and lower usage rates for maintenance sprays. You will need to use higher volumes of water to get the product over thick, dense vegetation. If you are treating your lawn for ticks we recommend you use the higher specified usage rate of 0.8 fl oz for 1,000 sq ft using whatever volume of water is needed. If you are treating up close to your home you are permitted to use the .5% emulsion (1 2/3 fl. oz. per gallon of water) per 1,000 sq ft as a perimeter treatment.
June 4, 2012
Marie from Winston Salem, Nc asked:
QCan Permethrin SFR be used with a hose end sprayer for the yard?
AYou can use Permethrin SFR in a hose end sprayer as long as the hose end sprayer you are using can be calibrated to dispense the amount of product you require per gallon of water as directed on the Permethrin SFR product label.

May 8, 2012
Kurt from Arlington,ma asked:
QCan permethrin SFR 36.8%,diluted to 0.5% be used to treat cloths for tick control?
APermethrin SFR 36.8% cannot be used on clothing of any type. We do carry Tick Block which was specifically manufactured for use on clothing for tick control. While Tick Block and Permethrin SFR 36.8% share the same active ingredient the base ingredients are very different and the products are not interchangeable.
