Phantom is an indoor/outdoor termiticide and insecticide that kills termites, ants, cockroaches, and now bed bugs, through a powerful non-repellent active ingredient. Pests can't even detect Phantom, so they walk right over it and then spread it to other insects hidden behind walls or in their home colony, killing every other pest they come in contact with. Phantom is virtually odorless, clear in color and provides superior pest control with a long-lasting residual.

How Phantom Insecticide & Termiticide Works
Phantom Termiticide/Insecticide is a non-repellent liquid concentrate that is diluted with water and usually applied with a pump sprayer. Phantom contains the active ingredient Chlorfenapyr, which belongs to a relatively new class of insecticides called pyrroles that 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.
Insects do not smell, taste, or avoid applications of Phantom. This means that Phantom can be used in conjunction with baits (do not spray on top of baits). Phantom also eliminates pest build up in one area, preventing pest avoidance of treated areas. The residual of Phantom will last for 30 days or longer. Phantom also has a high potency, so fewer applications are needed for effective treatments.
Phantom Target Insects
Ants, termites, bed bugs, centipedes, beetles
INSECTS CONTROLLED: termites (Reticulitermes spp. (R. flavipes, R. virginicus, R. hageni, R. tibialis, R. Hesperus), Coptotermes spp. (C. formosanus), and Heterotermes spp. (H. aureus); ants (acrobat, Argentine, carpenter, odorous house, pavement, pharaoh’s, pyramid); beetles (Asian lady, confused flour, darkling larva (yellow mealworm), saw-toothed grain); bed bugs; boxelder bugs; centipedes, cockroaches (American, Asian, brown-banded, German, Oriental, and smokybrown); European earwigs; house crickets; house flies; paper wasps (not a knockdown agent); pillbugs; spiders (black widow, cellar); silverfish
Phantom is a Termiticide and insecticide labeled for indoor (follow the label carefully) as well as outdoor use. It combines nonrepellency, superior control, long-lasting effects, and the ability to control populations faster than baiting systems—all in a low-dose, virtually odorless formulation. Phantom can be used as a soil drench, wall foam or as a general use spray as desired.
Phantom is a popular choice for ants and cockroaches because it can be used in conjunction with baiting. Phantom is also ideal for bed bug control because it is non-repellent and effective for pyrethroid resistant strains of bed bugs. Because of its long residual and efficacy with these and other common household pests, Phantom is an excellent choice for apartments, hotels, or similar commercial properties.
- Phantom also comes in a convenient aerosol formulation for smaller jobs or crack and crevice treatments.
Though Phantom is labeled for use as a soil drench for subterranean termites, products such as Termidor SC are more cost effective and last longer in the ground.
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Chlorfenapyr 21.45%
For termite treatments, use 4 gallons of 0.125% solution per 10 lineal feet of a 6 in. by 6 in. trench, establishing a continuous treated zone between the wood and other cellulose material in the structure and the termite population(s) in the soil. For pre-construction treatment to be covered by concrete slab, use 1 gallon of 0.25% finished solution per 10 square feet. Apply using a coarse spray nozzle and low-pressure spray (less than 25 psi). See our article How to Do a Termite Treatment for more details on liquid termite treatments.
Phantom may be converted to a foam for treatments in structural voids. Foam applications to voids above soil should be done with a wet foam (10:1 expansion ratio or less). See mixing table on the product label for dilution rates.
For general pest control indoors, applications should be made to breeding areas, nesting sites, hiding places, runways, and other places where pests are found or likely to infest. For use with only low-pressure directed spray application equipment. Use a 0.5% solution for crack and crevice or spot applications. Do not apply more than once every four weeks.
Always read the product label completely before use.
- One 21 oz. bottle makes 28 gallons of 0.125% solution for termites or 7 gallons of general use spray for cockroaches and ants.
- A 75 oz. bottle makes 100 gallons of finished solution for termites or 25 gallons of general use spray.
Standard Application Dilution rates / Mixing Ratios:
- 0.75 fl. oz. (22 mL)/gal. of water – 0.125% - most termite applications
- 1.5 fl. oz. (44 mL)/gal. of water – 0.25% - small volume termite applications
- 3.0 fl. oz. (88 mL)/gal. of water – 0.5% - general pest applications
- Use 4 gallons of 0.125% solution per 10 lineal feet for perimeter termite treatments
- One gallon of 0.5% solution for general pest applications covers approximately 1,000 square feet
Phantom is for use in the following areas:
Pre-construction and post-construction termite treatments in and around residential, commercial, and industrial buildings; inside houses, apartments or other residential structures, meat, poultry and egg processing and packaging plants, the food/feed and non-food/feed areas of food-handling establishments and commercial, institutional and warehousing establishments; food service, manufacturing and processing establishments such as restaurants, cafeterias, supermarkets, mills, processing plants, bakeries, breweries, dairies, meat slaughtering and packing plants and canneries; schools, groceries and supermarkets, restaurants and cafeterias, hotels and motels, hospitals and nursing homes, warehouses and industrial buildings, laboratories, zoos, pet shops, computer facilities, sewers
Cockroaches: Phantom is effective against American, Asian, brownbanded, German, Oriental, smokybrown, and other cockroach species. Use a 0.5% dilution. Apply dilution as a coarse, low pressure spot or crack and crevice spray to areas where these pests normally inhabit or are likely to infest.
Limited spot treatment of Phantom dilution can be made to surfaces beneath cabinets, spaces between equipment or expansion joints, surfaces behind sinks, lockers, water pipes, cabinets, or other areas where cockroaches may hide. Reapply, if needed, every 4 weeks or more.
Ants: Phantom is highly effective against household and structure-invading ants, including the following species: acrobat ants, Argentine Ants, Carpenter Ants, odorous house ants, pavement ants, Pharaoh's ants, pyramid ants, and other species.
Apply crack and crevice or spot treatments of a 0.5% dilution to areas of known or suspected ant activity. Where possible, apply Phantom directly to ant nest(s) or nesting site(s) or ant-infested wood or structural voids. Reapply, if needed, every 4 weeks or more.
Bed bugs: Do not make surface applications to mattresses. Mattress treatments must be confined to the seams, folds and edges only. Remove linens and wash before reuse. Allow to dry before remaking bed. Use an approved product for other treatment areas. Not recommended as the sole protection against bed bugs.
Exterior application of Phantom is limited to spot and crack and crevice treatments where pests enter around doors, windows, eaves, attic vents, and holes in exterior walls where utilities enter. Apply a maximum of 1.2 fl. oz. of dilution per 2 square feet.
- Convenient tip-and-pour bottle makes measuring and mixing easy.
- Pests do not detect Phantom applications so they unknowingly contact and ingest Phantom during routine activities.
- Precision targeted application method means less product goes farther.
- Effective against a wide variety of household ants and cockroaches.
- Labeled for use in food-handling environments.
- Effective for pyrethroid resistant strains of bed bugs.
- Excellent choice to accompany baiting programs.
Extra Tips for Using Phantom
- Store out of extreme temperatures and direct sunlight.
- Do not treat within a distance of one foot out from the dripline of edible plants.
- Do not make general surface or space applications such as for pantry pests in cupboards, cabinets, or containers.
- Do not reapply more than once every four weeks.
- Diluting more than recommended rates may cause product to become repellent and ineffective.
- Do not apply as a broadcast spray indoors or full perimeter application outdoors.

I have used this product every spring for a number of years; simply spray around the outside foundation of the house and we are ant and insect free for the entire season. A trick we learned from one of the expensive exterminators we hired to get rid of carpenter ants. Now we do it ourselves and save big $$.

We have had an opportunity to use the product, and have found it to be very effective so far. We were being bombarded by carpenter ants, and the little black ants but after treating with Phantom termiticide we seen them no more. Also in the past we used the Demand CS against an invasion of German Roaches and it was also very effective. I would like to say your products have been 100% effective. Thank you very much. Willard

Has worked well for me
By Mark in Balto,MD. on 09/07/2013
I live in a row home or "town house" in an east coast city and had an outbreak of bedbugs near two years ago. I had been given some of this product as it was used to treat my mother's apartment to rid of B-bugs and it works. I still find an occasional deadite b-bug and have even had a few encounters with one climbing a wall in broad daylight, this is not normal b-bug behavior and I suppose they are confused, poisoned and wandering to death, they move too slow to be healthy as far as I know. Anyway I do use subsequent application of diatomaceous earth after spray has dried or following day as this works hand in hand and not only for myself but my mother and a sister as well. I only have given 4 stars as in my, albeit half clay basement I still have daddy longleg spiders galore so I guess it isn't effective on all pest. One last thing , I was able to rid kitchen of annoying fruit fly and gnat issues as well just last summer. This years problem is flies in a backroom and so far so good. P.S. I have two cats and one dog and have observed no ill effects and all have had proper vet checkups since. I do however take precaution not to let the pets return until area sprayed is COMPLETELY dry. In it's liquid form this chemical can be dangerous for felines/cats so be smart and keep bottle well out of their way. Also Lol, I purchase form this site and shipping is within 3 days...cause it sucks to have to wait when in need. Good luck to all with b-bug issues it is a lot of work but they can be neutralized!

We have been purchasing Phantom Termiticide for about a year now. We love it. We run an 80 unit complex and with people moving in and out there are always a roach situation. Sometimes serious roach issues. We cannot believe how wonderful this product works. We give this a 5 star rating,

Phantom is more effective than 9.7% Lamda-Cyhalothrin
By John in Cincinnati, OH on 06/11/2012
I purchased insecticide with bed bugs being my prime target. I originally purchased 9.7% Lamda-Cyhalothrin because it was advertised as best against bed bugs and had a longer residual. Later I switched to Phantom and saw a marked improvement in kill power. I don't know why it's not promoted better against bed bugs but I'm going to repurchase Phantom.

Almost a year ago I had Bed Bug & Roach problems. I've used Phantom as directed and haven't seen any bugs in my house. No spiders, ants or anything. Phantom leaves no residue & dries quickly. Make sure you purchase the mattress & boxspring protectors if you have bed bugs. After everything is said & done spray everything with Phantom as directed. It is an Excellent product.

Left no survivors!
By Adam in Northen New Jersey on 04/26/2011
I just bought a home in Dec. in Northern NJ and the previous owner didn't tell me she had a large problem with ants not to mention termites, but that's another story. I sprayed this stuff around my home and especially in the cracks between the outside brick wall and the concrete ground. Next day there were at least a hundred dead outside of the cracks. Next couple of days I seen them inside the house behind my stove. I guess I trapped them in the wall. I sprayed Phantom everywhere behind the stove and cabinets. Next morning everything was dead. This stuff is awesome!

I have tried the above noted product and thus far am pleased. I have ants that just don't seem to react to other products but are staying away with Phanom Termiticide/ Insecticide. I would recommend this product to any who has tried other products and found them not to work. Give it a try, I believe you'll be satisfied.

Much better than expected!
By Don in Jefferson, GA on 07/12/2010
This stuff does not leave a lingering smell, it atomizes into a mist easily or can be shot in a stream. It took care of the wasps building nests under my deck, and any place I sprayed became off-limits to new wasp construction. Using a mist - it took care of the fleas in the garage from the dogs. Fire Ants no longer have a free lunch in the dog bowls, and they no longer have any interest in nesting near the trash bin outside. It works great in the concentration specified on the label, and having the measuring compartment makes mixing the right amount a cinch!

Effective & Efficient
By Jon in Boynton Beach, FL on 06/30/2010
Odorless, does not kill or brown out vegetation. Sprayed product in palm trees and on vegetation, where ants were concentrated. Kills insects on contact and has lasting effect on keeping them away afterwards. I had major crazy ant problem, tried many approaches and Phantom was the only thing that worked.

Ask a Question
QIs Phantom Insecticide safe around kids and babies?
AYes, Phantom is safe while kids/babies and pets are in the house. Phantom is only strong enough to kill small insects. It is a good idea to keep pets and children outside or in another room while treating and then allow about 30 minutes for the products to dry. Once dry, it is perfectly safe for children and pets to re-enter the living space. Of course you should always store the products just like any other cleaning chemicals, out of reach of children and pets.
QHow effective is Phantom Insecticide for bed bug control?
I am experiencing a problem with bed bugs and recently had my apartment treated with Phantom. The technician treated not only cracks and floorboards, etc, but sprayed my walls as well. I'm reading the info on this website which says only to treat seams, not walls. Is treating the walls safe and effective? How many treatments will I need? Apartment was sprayed today and I have seen several live bed bugs and have felt several bites. Shouldn't it kill them immediately?
APhantom is quickly becoming the new preferred treatment for bed bugs. It leaves a long term residual that has shown to kill bed bugs long after you initially treat. However, it is not an immediate kill. When a bed bug crosses over an area that has been treated with Phantom, it picks up the product on its body, but it can take days to kill the bed bug. This is why you will still see bed bugs and still may get bitten, but the bed bug will die. Phantom is very popular now because bed bugs build up resistance easily to certain products and Phantom is a product that they have not shown resistance to yet. Any good company should treat every two weeks for at least two cycles. It could take more than two treatments depending on the severity of the situation. I cannot comment on the companies interpretation of the instructions, but treating cracks and crevices, baseboards, and other areas will ensure that when the bed bugs come out of hiding that they will cross a treated barrier. You should consider our Bed Bug Treatment Kits. They have a very high success rate and will save you lots of money over hiring another exterminator if they are not successful.
QHow much Phantom Insecticide do I mix per gallon for roach control?
I am regular customer of yours. I am very pleased with Phantom. However, in the manual it states that the dilution for roaches should be 3 oz per gal. I am a little concerned as you mentioned 1.5 oz per gal?
A The amount of 1.5 oz per gallons of water more pertains if you are using Phantom for a termite treatment. You should use 3 oz per gallon of water when applying for roaches or other general pest control insects.

QIs there a restricted entry interval following an application of Phantom Insecticide for cockroaches? Is there any personal protective equipment required for such re-entry?
A Phantom is an odorless and very safe liquid insecticide.† There is no requirement to wear anything special upon re-entry.† You should always wear gloves when applying any pesticide, but unless you are in a completely closed room with no ventilation, you do not need a respirator.† You should allow enough time for the product to dry and then it is perfectly fine to enter back into the space with children and pets.† Usually it takes 30 - 45 minutes for the product to dry thoroughly.† Always read the product label for full treatment instructions.

QPhantom vs Termidor
What is better for termites: Phantom or Termidor?
A Termidor is definitely the most popular termite treatment product available. Phantom was made more for indoor pest control and perimeter pest control treatments. Since Termidor is not labeled to treat around the indoors for pest control, Phantom was made to serve that purpose. Although Phantom is labeled for termites treating, it does not last nearly as long as Termidor does in the ground and it is also much more costly per finished gallon than Termidor is.

QHOW LONG DOES IT TAKE PHANTOM TO MAKE A NOTICEABLE DIFFERENCE ON INDOOR SPRAYING?
I SPRAYED 4 DAYS AGO ATTEMPTING TO ELIMINATE A GERMAN ROACH PROBLEM. I USED PHANTOM MIXED WITH GENTROL IGR CONCETRATE. I MIXED IT TO THE RECOMENDED LEVELS.
APhantom can take up to two weeks to actually kill bugs after they come into contact with treated surfaces. Phantom offers a delayed kill that gives insects time to get back to the nest and infect other insects with the insecticide. Phantom is also a non-repellent insecticide which means that sensitive insects like roaches can not tell that it is there and they readily cross over the treatment area. Roach treatments should be done every 4 weeks until you do not see any more roach activity. Most people do end up doing between 3-5 treatments. We would also recommend incorporating an IGR (insect growth regulator) such as Gentrol IGR to stop the reproductive cycle of the roaches. Roaches exposed to the Gentrol IGR will become adults incapable of reproducing, thus ending the cycle of an infestation. You may mix Phantom with the Gentrol IGR with a gallon of water to perform the application of both products at the same time.

QWhat is the reason why I can't use Exciter with Phantom?
I have read the Labels of both Phantom and Exciter in addition to other sources which state "not to use Exciter as an additive with non-repellent insecticides", but have been un able to determine why. Is Exciter a repellent or does it interfere/interact with the active ingredient in Phantom?
AMixing a non repellant like Phantom with a synergist like Exciter will cause the Phantom to become somewhat of a repellant and also speed up the knockdown which is counter productive because it doesn't encourage the domino effect as well as good as non repllants. Non repellants have a slower kill which allows it to spread much more thoroughly throughout insect populations through the transfer and delay effect. When you add a synergist to a non repellant you loose that added benefit.

QCan Phantom be used on carpets and chairs?
APhantom Termiticide is not labeled to be used as a broadcast on open carpeted areas. You should try to keep applications of Phantom Termiticide to small spots and cracks and crevices around the room, do not spray over entire surfaces where people come in frequent contact. It can be applied to the seams and folds of mattresses and upholstered furniture underneath the cushions

QWill Phantom Termiticide/Insecticide kill carpet beetle larvae?
Also how many treatments does a carpet beetle infestation require are the most effective treatment intervals?
A Phantom is not labeled to treat carpet beetles. For indoor carpet beetle control you may want to consider a product such as Nyguard Plus. This product contains an insecticide to kill the roaming adults and an insect growth regulator to stop the harder to kill immature beetles from reaching a reproductive state which in turn will break the cycle of infestation. As an added bonus this product also contains a deodorizer for carpet applications. You should apply every 2 weeks. It does take quite some time to fully eradicate carpet beetles, how long depends on how bad of an infestation you have and making sure you have found the source. Please take a few minutes to read our Carpet Beetle article to learn more about eliminating a carpet beetle infestation.

QDoes mixing Gentrol IGR concentrate with Phantom reduce Phantom's "nonrepellency" for cockroaches?
We hopefully have a light/moderate roach infestation - we maybe see 2-3 roaches a week. We are already planning on using Advion Roach Bait Gel, but we'd like to also use Phantom and Gentrol IGR concentrate as a liquid mix to do baseboards, under appliances, sink cabinets, attic areas, and basement bandboards. However, here's a technical question: 1.) Will adding Gentrol IGR to Phantom, make the Phantom detectable to the roaches and make them not want to touch it?, 2.) Will spraying the Gentrol IGR / Phantom mix near our Advion Roach Bait drops cause the roaches to avoid the bait?, and 3.) We won't spray the mix on top of the Advion drops, but pretty near it (e.g., along the bottom of sink cabinets, yet put Advion bait 1 foot above this area around the sink plumbing?). Could you advise?
AAdding Gentrol IGR to Phantom will not change the non-repellency of Phantom. You should not apply the Advion and the Phantom/Gentrol in the same exact places. Keep the Advion up high around counter tops, in cabinets and drawers and in other cracks or crevices where it would not be appropriate to spray. Keep sprays around baseboards, moldings, door frames, window frames and under appliances. The Advion Bait will not be contaminated as long as you do not spray it directly with the Phantom/Gentrol dilution.
QAny side effects to my kids under the age of 8 using Phantom insecticide spray for bed bugs in the house?
And how safe is it to my kids who are 7, 5, and 1 yr. Thank you.
APhantom is safe to use around children of any age as long as you follow the Phantom product label. Make sure all children are out of the area that is being treated and they can return as soon as the area is completely dry.
QWhat is the shelf life of Phantom?
I purchased the 21 oz. bottle of Phantom Termiticide/Insecticide about 6 months ago. I am wondering whether or not it has a shelf life. If so, how long? I sprayed once when I received it, and I haven't sprayed since until today. I'm questioning the product's current strength.
APhantom will last for up to 3 years in the bottle as long as it has been stored out of direct sunlight and out of extreme temperatures. Do not apply Phantom more than every 4 weeks. Application and dilution ratios will vary according to the pest you are treating, please take a look over the product label for more information.
QHow long will it take for the bed bugs to die?
I have sprayed my house with Phantom insecticide. I also sprayed Bedlam on the mattress, bed frame and spring box. It's been more than a week now, and I am still getting bites. One thing I did not do is buy an encasement. I will do spot spraying again in a week. How long until I should expect to see the results?
APhantom can take up to two weeks to actually kill the bedbugs after they come into contact with treated surfaces. Bedbug treatments should be done every 7-10 days until you do not receive a bite for 30 days. Most people do end up doing between 3-5 treatments. The key to successful bedbug elimination is thoroughness. We strongly recommend purchasing mattress and boxspring encasements.
QIs Phantom Insecticide effective against roaches around my home?
We seem to have a seasonal oriental roach problem. Last year I used Cy-Kick with good success, for some reason that escapes me I purchased some Phantom will this be as effective against the roaches when used as a perimeter spray 6 feet out from and 3 feet up the foundation? Our house has a crawl space under it what treatment if any do you recomend under the house? What about treating fences, decks and lawns?
Phantom is a great choice for "social" insects or those insects that congregate together for nesting and feeding. Phantom offers a delayed kill that gives insects time to get back to the nest and infect other insects with the insecticide. Phantom is also a non-repellent insecticide which means that sensitive insects like roaches can not tell that it is there and they readily cross over the treatment area. Phantom is usually used indoors for current infestations. Exterior applications are limited to spot and crack and crevice treatments around door frames, window frames, eaves, attic vents, and holes where utilities enter into the structure. Cy-Kick CS is micro-encapsulated and offers a faster knockdown of insects and can be used in more places than the Phantom. Cy-Kick is a great choice for outdoor perimeter control of roaches and many other insects. You can use the Cy-Kick-CS to treat around your fence deck and lawn. You may also want to consider what is bringing the roaches to your home. Take a few minutes to read through our article on Integrated Pest Management. This article can help you make a few changes to your yard and home that could stop the roaches from being attracted to the area in the first place.
