Phantom Aerosol Spray

Phantom Pressurized Aerosol Spray delivers the power and effectiveness of Phantom Insecticide in a convenient and easy-to-use aerosol can. Phantom aerosol provides broad-spectrum control over numerous indoor pests including bed bugs, ants and cockroaches.  Phantom dries clear with no visible residue, and delivers long-residual non-repellent control. In other words, Phantom aerosol will stay around and kill pests long after you spray it.  Plus, the product has a transfer effect allowing insects to pick up the product and spread it to one another through touch and food-sharing, which kills even the pests you don't see. Effective on pyrethroid-resistant strains of bed bugs and cockroaches.  Only for use in cracks and crevices where bed bugs or insects hide.

Phantom Aerosol Spray has changed to Phantom II. Phantom II is still the same product - it still contains the same active ingredient, Chlorfenapyr. It now kills more insects such as foraging Fire Ants, Harvester Ants, Bees (Honey), and Carpenter Bees. Now containing a new formulation, this newly improved aerosol spray has less odor.

Old Manufacturer's Product Number: 59011639

How Phantom Aerosol Works

Phantom Aerosol is a ready-to-use residual insecticide with the active ingredient Chlorfenapyr. Chlorfenapyr belongs to a relatively new class of insecticides called pyrroles which are produced from microbes. Pyrroles do not metabolize into active insecticides until after they enter the host target pest. Chlorfenapyr disrupts the production of ATP in the part of the cell that turns food into energy, causing cellular death and ultimate mortality. Because this process is slower than other modes of action, Phantom can have a transfer effect similar to that of baits on social insects like ants, cockroaches, and termites. Once applied, Phantom Aerosol has a residual of at least 30 days.

Phantom Aerosol Target Pests

Ants, cockroaches, beetles, bed bugs, spiders, wasps

PESTS CONTROLLED WITH PHANTOM AEROSOL: Ants (Acrobat, Argentine, Odorous House, Pavement, Pharaoh, Pyramid); Beetles (Asian Lady, Confused Flour, Darkling Larva (Yellow mealworm), Saw-toothed Grain); Bark Scorpions; Bed Bugs, Boxelder Bugs, Centipedes; Cockroaches (American, Asian, Brown-Banded, German, Oriental, Smokey Brown); Earwigs; House Crickets; House Flies; Paper Wasps; Pillbugs; Spiders (Black Widow, Cellar); Silverfish; Stored Product Pests; Termites

Target Uses of Phantom Aerosol

Phantom Aerosol has the same power and effectiveness as Phantom Insecticide Concentrate in a convenient ready-to-use can. Phantom has a long residual and can be used in many places. Because of its transfer effect, Phantom is excellent for ants, cockroaches, and other social insects. It can also be used in conjunction with baiting. Phantom Aerosol is excellent for use in smaller areas such as apartments where residual insecticides may be desired, but the large quantities that concentrates yield are not needed. Because of its unique active ingredient, Phantom is effective on pyrethroid-resistant strains of bed bugs and cockroaches.

Phantom Aerosol is not a knockdown agent and should not be used for knockdown treatment of stinging insects.

ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Chlorfenapyr 0.5%

    5 of 5 Stars  Pros Use It
    By Shirley in Hoboken, NJ on October 15, 2010

    We had confirmed bed bugs at work and I think I brought them home. I asked what the exterminators had used and they said Suspend and Mother Earth. I then called a local exterminator and they quoted me $800 to spray Phantom and dust with DE. I can't afford a pro so I purchased Phantom, Suspend and Mother Earth, put on a mask and went to battle myself. It's been only 3 weeks but I think I won. I slashed the bottom of my new expensive sofa to really get into the grooves and sprayed everywhere. I also encased my mattress and box spring. It's reassuring that if the bugs come back I can retreat immediately and not have to spend $800 each time.

    4 of 5 Stars  Works Great, but Be Careful!
    By Chris in Falls Church, VA on August 10, 2010

    This product has a ruthless odor, stronger than most aerosols such as CB-80 or P.I. and if used indoors can smell bad and choke everyone out of the room. Be sure to use your PPE and/or open windows while using it. Also, be sure not to spray it in your eyes...I accidentally sprayed it right into my eye and it burned and had a cold, tingling feeling for hours.

    5 of 5 Stars  Same Stuff the Pros Use
    By Brad in Rex, GA on October 2, 2010
    Verified Purchase

    I had my upstairs treated for BedBugs last month by a professional pest control company. I checked my receipt and searched the chemicals they used. That is when I found DoMyOwnPestControl.com. On my receipt from the Pest Control Company it lists Phantom Aerosol Spray was used along with other chemicals. So I bought a can and also the BedBug Kit#2 which also contains products the pros use. I also bought mattress and box spring encasements. They are priceless, since I can sleep knowing that those evil bugs are no longer camping out waiting to suck my blood. DoMyOwnPestControl.com was easy to order from and my order was received in three days. I am very pleased with how they do business. I would recommend DoMyOwnPestControl.com to anyone suffering from BedBug infestation.

    5 of 5 Stars  Kiss your indoor ant problems goodbye
    By Philip in Atlanta, GA on June 5, 2009
    Verified Purchase

    For weeks I've been dealing with annoying little black ants (argentine or sugar ants I think) coming in and around the back door of my house and eating all of the Cheerios our little baby keeps dropping on the kitchen floor. We tried everything to stop the ants, but whatever we used or sprayed on them would just keep them away for a day or so, and then they would just pop out of the wall somewhere else. Then I tried this Phantom spray. Wow, does this stuff work! I sprayed just a line of Phantom along the bottom of the back door and where the ants were coming in, and within minutes there were dead ants everywhere I sprayed. Not only that, but the ants never came back. I highly recommend!

    5 of 5 Stars  Oh my gosh
    By Phil in Raleigh, NC on April 4, 2010

    I can't believe they now have an aerosol spray for Phantom. This is basically an indoor version of Termidor, which is the best stuff for ants. I used to work for a pest control company and ants were the most difficult thing to kill because most people would use something from Walmart, which ants can detect and they would find new places to go. However, Phantom they can't detect, and it kills them slowly, but completely. The way that it works is that it gets on the ants' bodies and when they rub up against each other the insecticide then rubs off on those ants. It will take about 5 days to see them completely gone, but this stuff can't be beat for totally removing your complete ant problem. I am just shocked that it is now in a spray as we had to mix it from a huge bottle.

Terro, Combat, various homemade ant repellants (ha!), essential oils, vinegar...you name it, I tried it. All to no avail. Got the Phantom Spray in the mail, went around the edges of the room and around the area where the ants seemed to have taken up residence. It was like they packed up their bags and left! Gone. I couldn't believe it! I am sold on this stuff! It's a MIRACLE. And no strong odor either. Woo Hoo!! I will never be without this stuff from now on!

    5 of 5 Stars  bed bug self treatment.
    By Satisfied in Nashville, Tn on December 7, 2014
    Verified Purchase

    Before treating I saw two bugs in my home. One in the bathroom and one in the hallway. I was unable to find the infestation after searching my mattress, boxspring, bed and base boards. I never had any bites so Im assuming they came from my neighbor. I took my bed apart as well as removed all bedding and clothes to wash. I sprayed in cracks and crevices throughout my home. That was about 2weeks ago, still no bites. I've seen 1 bed bug since then I believe Phantom did its job! I will continue to spot treat.

QCan you spray Phantom on your bed, babys furniture? is it safe? Is this product known to cause cancer?
A man came in today and sprayed for bedbugs with phantom. He sprayed the baseboards and the permiter. my living room furniture, my babys bed, the dog bed and my mattress and boxspring? is it still safe to sleep on? and what should i do if not? Is this stuff toxic? He had my one year old, my dog and myself stay in the house while he was spraying.

AWe cannot comment on any work done by a pest control company for liability reasons. We can tell you that the areas you mentioned that were sprayed with the Phantom are listed as areas that can safely be treated on the Phantom Aerosol product label. You do need to let the treated areas dry before you use them and you do need to cover the mattress with a sheet before you use it again. Phantom is safely used in homes everyday to help eliminate bedbug infestations.

Qwhat is the difference between bed bug treatment kit with phantom spray and bedlam spray?
I bought the bed bug treatment with the phantom spray but I found that your q and A seems to recommend the bedlam spray. What are the factors I should pay attention to when using the phantom spray. What are the advantages of using one spray over the other.

AThere are many factors that we considering when answering a customer submitted question. Phantom is one of the top products on the market for bedbug infestations but for some customers it is too costly. Phantom is a non-repellent insecticide which means that bedbugs would not be able to detect that it is there and they will readily walk through treated areas. In the Q&A that you are referencing the other customer could have been using other synthetic pyrethroids in the same are which would have interfered with the non-repellent qualities of Phantom or there could have been a budget concern. Also the customer who submitted the Q&A you are referring to may have lived in a state where Phantom is restricted.

QCan I spray Phantom and then later on spray Bedlam over the same area?
Can I spray Onslaught and Phantom over the same area at different intervals? There is a small spot area underneath my computer table where the bugs are especially active and probably live between the floor tiles. I would like to spray the Phantom for long-term control and the Onslaught or Bedlam for more immediate control.

AYou should apply one or the other, but not two in the same place.  All of the products you had mentioned are very good products and it really is overkill to apply two in the same place.  Bedlam and Onslaught may work a little quicker than Phantom and because of this it would not benefit you to spray Phantom over another product.  The Bedlam and Onslaught will kill the bugs just the same, and adding Phantom would not make them work quicker or more effectively.  All of this being said it would not hurt anything to apply Phantom over the same area, but it would not be very cost effective.

QHow or can you rid a fifth wheel camper that is overrun with little black or red ants inside and out?
Recently purchased this camper, went camping and an hour or so later the counters were covered with ants, used baits and got rid of some of them. We took it back to the dealer and they used a bomb inside, killed a lot of them but they are still there, they are crawling on the outside of the camper as well. I recently purchased some Talstar from your company but I am unsure about how to get rid of the ants in the walls....never done this before so I would like some info before I ever start. Thanks in advance and hope you can help me.

A Phantom Aerosol would be a good choice for you. Phantom should be applied around baseboards, door frames, window frames and places where utilities (cables, pipes and wires) enter through the wall as these are the most likely places for the ants to enter/exit. Phantom is a non-repellent insecticide that has a delayed reaction which allows ants time to get back to the colony and spread the product. In essence, the ants will not be able to tell that the product is in place and they will pick it up on the fine hairs all over their body and inadvertently carry it back to the colony where over a course of a few days it will knock out the entire colony. Phantom works really well because you don't have to worry about whether the ants will all take the bait, they just need to walk over the treated areas.

A Phantom Aerosol will leave a longer residual than Bedlam. Bedlam is used as a contact kill and leaves approx a 2 week residual. Phantom Aerosol can be sprayed along the tufts, folds and seams of the mattress and in the bed frame, box spring and along the cracks and crevices of furniture, etc. In addition to using a dust in wall voids and box spring areas, we recommend using Temprid SC around the perimeters of the room. Apply as a crack and crevice treatment to all baseboards, moldings, beneath floor coverings and carpets, closets, shelves, curtains, furniture and picture frames that may provide harborage to bed bugs. Temprid SC can be re-applied every 7 to 10 days as needed.

September 24, 2014 John from Cleveland, Ohio asked:

QI have Phantom, Gentrol and Temprid sc. What is a good schedule apply for bed bugs?
Can I spray all at once in same locations? Can they be mixed?

A Phantom Aerosol should only be used once every four weeks. Gentrol and Temprid should be mixed together in a pump sprayer and applied every 7-14 days. You should not apply the Phantom and the Gentrol/Temprid mix to the same locations as it is not needed. Phantom should be used in cracks and crevices at a maximum rate of 2 seconds of spray per linear foot and the Gentrol/Temprid mix should be applied to other areas of the room such as baseboards, window frames, door frames, bed frame, etc. Please read over our Bed Bug Treatment Guide for more information regarding bed bug treatments.

QWill Phantom do a quick knockdown specifically on yellow jackets and can you use this inside wall void

A Phantom does not provide a quick knock down. Please check out our article "How to Get Rid of Yellow Jackets". If you can get to the openings where the yellow jackets are coming in and out from we highly recommend applying a dust like Tempo 1% Dust and when the yellow jacket comes in contact with it, the dust will transfer from yellow jacket to yellow jacket and kill off the entire nest. Be sure to make your application in early morning/late evening when they are less active. You can also use Wasp Freeze for any straglers.

QIs Phantom effective on ghost ants??
Hello, we have it seems a few colonies of Ghost Ants within our walls here in Orlando FL. We contacted an exterminator and he has been here nearly every week for 4-5 weeks baiting and re-baiting with Maxforce Quantum. He also treated the outside perimeter with ALPINE. Unfortunately the Maxforce seems to work very slow and dries quickly leaving the ghost ants not interested anymore. I visited a bug control store here in FL who recommended using Optiguard bait and to reapply ever couple days to ensure it stays wet. He also recommended to use Phantom aerosol around the baseboard perimeter. Does Phantom aerosol work well for ghost ants ? I do not want to undo or interfere with the work the exterminator is doing, he explained we must be patient to ensure the colony is destroyed but it seems to take forever with the Maxforce Quantum and within 1-2 days its dried up and he doesn't come back for another 5 days leaving the ants to start foraging further and further again. I want to treat the baseboards and cracks in the areas they are coming in from and appear with PHANTOM spray in addition to the Maxforce bait he is using but do not see that it mentions anything about its effect on ghost ants. Thanks for your help

A

While Phantom Aerosol is an excellent product for ants, using bait is better for ghost ants. A product such as Maxforce FC Ant Bait Gel is a better solution for ghost ants. Another good treatment method is using dust, such as Delta Dust Insecticide and a hand duster. The dust will go inside the wall voids, crack and crevices and basically places that are not easily sprayed. Delta Dust is a wonderful product because it is waterproof.
