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.

Had a major flea infestation, probably wasted 2 weeks trying to get control of the problem with store products, don't waste your time with local store killers. Found do my own pest control, purchased permethrin and an igr and immediately got control of the situation. With a major infestation, don't be surprised if you have to make several applications over a 2 week period and thats due to the flea life cycle, but this stuff is the best and a local exterminator agreed.

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.

Made the party GREAT !!!
By Wally on August 2, 2014
I have tried many things but now this works. Live in the country and have a fireworks party each year, the gnats and mosquitos are out for blood. I have tried many things with no results, but I sprayed the area the day before and the day of the party this year and it was totally bug free, everyone enjoyed the show and stayed much later afterwards.
so far,so good
By Jeff on July 25, 2014
Used it on my yard to control chiggers. I seem to have a lot of them Since then I've been out weedwacking and no bites! Hopefully, this is the end of them. I plan another treatment in a week or so as a back up.
By Steve on July 13, 2014
Mixed a sprayed as per directed with great results. The target was chiggers around our Oklahoma acreage. They are gone as well as all the mud wasps, paper wasps ,spiders and black beetles. Even the flies are thinned considerably! I can hardly wait for cricket season! If they have hatch I know I can knock them out with this mixture.

I've used this stuff over the years for hunting clothes and the like. I've just started using it for lawn care, and the results were wonderful. I'd highly recommend this stuff. Especially if you live in woody areas. Ticks are a thing of the past on my acreage around my house.

No uninvited GuestPests
By Kat on June 10, 2014
Attended an outdoor party at a friends house, ...food, drinks, people, kids, everything was outside.. I noticed no flies, no mosquitoes, no bugs anywhere. I was told this is what they used the day before and it works. Bought some last year from that friend and now am buying my own for my yard this year. I love being outside, even with this Texas heat, and this stuff makes it possible to do without those nasty flying insects.. Thanks !!
By Leonard on June 8, 2014
The information that you provided about this product was great. No more bugs!

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.
April 15, 2011 Sylvia asked:
QWhat is the ratio of water to Permethrin?
AYou did not mention a specific product, but we assume you are speaking of Permethrin SFR or something similar. You can use anywhere from 1 ounce to 3 ounces of Permethrin per gallon of water depending on what you are treating. You should read the product label for complete treating instructions.
May 26, 2010 Vic asked:
QCan you use Permethrin SFR indoors for fleas?
AYes, you can use Permethrin SFR indoors for fleas. You can also use it outside and directly on dogs(do NOT use on cats). Please read the product label for complete instructions.

Branch from Milton, Ma asked:
QUsing Permethrin SFR how many oz per quart water for mix of .5%?
AYou will need to use 1 2/3 fl. oz. for each gallon of water to get a 0.5% ratio. If you only need to mix one quart of solution at a time you will need to use just under 1/2 (0.43) oz of Permethrin SFR per quart of water to get a 0.5% mixture.
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.

Pat from Long Grove Il asked:
QWhat is the best product to get rid of ticks when you have about a 1/2 acre of trees on your property?
I am buying a house that has a lot of trees on the property and I am worried about ticks. Please tell me the best product to get rid of ticks when you have about a 1/2 acre of trees on your property. All the products I read about talk about minimizing ticks in gardens or grassy areas.
A The best products we can recommend for tick control would be the Permethrin SFR mixed with the NyGuard IGR. The Permethrin SFR is the killing agent that will kill and repel the ticks in the areas that you treat. The NyGuard IGR is a birth control to keep the ticks from reproducing and to keep immature stages of the ticks from growing into reproducing adults. These two products can be mixed together and sprayed at the same time for a letal combo to the tick population. Spraying with the Permethrin SFR every 2 weeks at first can be needed and then back off to every 30-60 days. The NyGuard will hold up typically 3-4 months outdoors.

Bob from Savannah, Georgia asked:
QCan Permethrin Sfr 36.8% Be Used To Treat Bed Mattress For Bed Bugs?
lWhat About Recliner Chairs? How would I mix and apply products?
A We usually do not recommend Permethrin SFr for treating for bedbugs. This is because of the high chance of resistance. ZPemrethrin SFR is not labeled for use on furniture or mattresses. Instead you recommend you use a product Transport Mikron. This product has dual active ingredients to avoid resistance by the bedbugs and it is labeled for use on furniture and mattresses.

David from Shirley, Arkansas asked:
QCan Permethrin SFR 36.8% be used to pretreat during slab construction.I need to treat 3700 square ft what is mix ratio .
I have 3700 ft to treat what is mix ratio and how much will I need. Can I use hose end sprayer to treat.
Permethrin SFR 36.8% would not be recommended as a pre slab treatment. We would recommend using Termidor. Pre-slab and barrier treatments with Termidor can last for up to 10 years for subterranean termite control. You would dilute Temidor at .8 oz per gallon water and apply 1-1.5 gallons diluted solution per 10 sq. feet. Please refer to page 5 of the product label.

Laurence from Dallas, Tx asked:
QCan I mix Riptide 5% and Permethirin
My mosquitoes laughed at Riptide last year.
Technically you can use them together, as long as you are using in a standard pump sprayer and not in a ULV fogger. Riptide will provide a fast knockdown to insects that are in the area while applying and Permethrin will provide a residual that continues to kill the insects that land on a treated surface.
April 18, 2014
Louis from United States asked:
QCan I mix Permethrin SFR with an insect growth regulator?
Yes, Permethrin SFR can be mixed with an IGR. Since Permethrin SFR is primarily used outside, we would recommend mixing Nyguard IGR . Nyguard IGR will last the longest outdoors.

Tracy from Bear Valley Springs, Ca asked:
QHow long can you store the Permethrin SFR 36.8%diluted product and maintain the product effectiveness?
I want to use this as a tick/fly spray for horses and keep it pre-mixed in a spray bottle.
We always recommend to use any dilutes solution including Permethrin SFR 36.8% within 24 hours of mixing. Let us know if you have any more questions.

Glen from Fort Myers Beach,florida asked:
QSolo 451 fogger and permethrin sfr 36.8 to treat noseeums at what mix do I use 1.23 oz per one us gallon ?
The fogger also has a rate at which the formula is applied ? The box was really messed up, it looks like UPS had to repack the solo box. Everything looks ok. Have not started until I know the mix for lawn, bushes, garage, mangroves and fruit trees
A If you are treating around the perimeter of your home, foliage, ornamentals then you would mix 0.8 fluid ounce of Permethrin SFR 36.8% per gallon of water and apply with your Solo 451 Mist Blower.

Lucinda from Gonzales, La asked:
QShould I use Permethrin SFR or Hy-Yield 38 Plus for red ants?
I am having a bad problem with red ants coming inside of my home from under the doors. I am currently using the Talstar granules which kills the ants, but I keep finding dead ants that have come inside.
A The Permethrin SFR 36.8% and the Hi-Yield 38% Plus both have the same active ingredient and will give comparable results so either would be a good choice as a barrier spray around the home and door and window frames.
