Q
Do Bifen Granules kill American/Oriental roaches?
A

We are not sure why Bifen Granules does not have roaches on the label, but it is the same product as Talstar PL Granules, and roaches are listed on the Talstar granule product label. Please take a few moments to review our treatment article on How to Get Rid of Roaches for a successful roach control program. We do carry Roach Control Kits.

Q
Do Bifen Granules have a systemic effect when spread onto vegetable garden?

Bifen L/P Granules should not be used around edible vegetation. They have a residual that will last for up to four months but should be applied at least 10-15 ft outside the drip line of the garden.

Q
Can I use Bifen L/P Granules on the the perimeter gravel around my house?
I'm an overkill kind of guy. I use Cy-kick as a perimeter defense, but was wondering if I can use this in the rest of my gravel yard (2 inch depth of gravel on top of Arizona dirt) to further discourage crawling things? If so, do I just leave it on or water it in? Knowing what I want to accomplish, is there a better solution?
A

Yes, you can absolutely use the Bifen LP Granules on your rock landscaping for further control. Water it in with roughly 1/2 rainfall equivalent and it will slowly break down over about 2 months or so to give continuous insect control. Many customers do the same thing you are with spraying around the foundation as it gives you the ability to get vertical surface treatment and any bushes that may be around as well as long term protection further out with the granules.†

10/09/2015Dennis from Peepekeo, HI asked:

Q
Do the Bifen L/P and Talstar PL granules have the same active ingredient? Why can I not have the Bifen L/P shipped to HI?
A

Bifen L/P granules and Talstar PL granules contain the same active ingredient, bifenthrin. There are restrictions for certain states for each product based on a state law or manufacturer registration. We can ship the Talstar PL Granules to your state. They will last approximately 2-4 months once applied and watered in (which can be done prior to rainfall). Please refer to the product label for complete application instructions for the insect(s) you are targeting.

Q
Will Bifen L/P kill gnats?
I am having a wedding in September and looking for something to control sand gnats.
A

Bifen Granules would not be a good choice to treat for this pest. Talstar P will offer some control if applied to the trees, bushes and grass a few days before the wedding to lower the gnat population in the area. The morning of the wedding you may want to try to use a pyrethrin based product such as Riptide in a mist blower over the whole area which will kill anything that is flying around and help repel the gnats from the area for several hours.

07/15/2015Frankie from Medford, Oregon asked:

Q
Do Bifen Granules or another product have a higher percentage of Bifenthrin, like maybe 50%?
A

The only product that we carry that has more of the active ingredient bifenthrin in it is Bifen XTS. It is an oil based insecticide that should be used outdoors only for general pest control. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Q
I am currently treating for roaches. Do I need additional products besides Bifen Granules?
I am currently treating inside my home with fumigation. Bifen Granules are being used around the perimeter of my home, but we still have lot of roaches inside the home, even after I have fumigated. Do I need to open every electrical outlet and put powder pesticide inside?
A

We recommend to continue using the Bifen L/P Granules for outdoors to protect your lawn from a broad range of insects. We do recommend treating in your wall voids and behind your outlets with an insecticide dust that will leave a long residual such as Delta Dust. It is water resistant and will last up to 7 months. To do a complete treatment we recommend our Roach Control Kit Rotation A. This kit comes with several products that should be used together to eliminate roach infestations.

If you have any other question in regards to roach control, please review Cockroach Treatment Guide

Q
Can I use Bifen Granules and Bifen IT together?
I just bought the Bifen Granules and the Bifen IT spray. Can I apply these at the same time? I want to use the spray on the house siding and the foundation and use the granules in the lawn. Thank you.
A
The Bifen IT and the Bifen Granules can absolutely be used at the same time as they are generally not applied in the same area.  You can spray around the foundation of the home, 2-3 feet up and out and then apply the granules further out than that and across the yard.

05/05/2015Cris from Cedar Rapids, Iowa asked:

Q
Are Bifen Granules safe to use in a yard with dogs? I'm wanting to kill ticks and fleas, is this going to work?
A

Bifen Granules should be broadcast with a spreader and watered in and completely dry before allowing pets in the treated areas. They will be safe once dried. The Bifen Granules would be a great treatment for many insects but if you are treating for ticks and fleas, we highly recommend applying the products in our Tick Control Kit. It is important to mow the lawn 1-2 days prior to your first application and treat once every two weeks outdoors for flea control. You will make a minimum of two applications. Additional treatments should be applied if needed. Please let us know if you need anything else.

Q
Do Bifen Granules kill wolf spiders?

No, Bifen Granules are not labeled for any type of spiders. We would recommend using Onslaught FastCap Spider and Scorpion Insecticide. It is labeled for various types of spiders, as well as other pests. You will need to spray in the areas where the spiders are. They need to come in contact with the product in order for the spiders to die. This can be used indoors and outdoors.

Q
Does using Bifen with other products a pest control uses on my lawn counteract their treatment?
I have a service come every couple of months and they have concerns that my treating will make their treatments null because I'm using Bifen.
A
We need more information in order to answer your question. Do you know what the product your services uses? That would be the best way to determine if it will counteract with Bifen Granules.

Q
Ground covers, mulch and barks
Hi there, can I sprinkle these granules on ground covers, mulch or barks? Do they have to be applied when it's dry or can I apply them when when it's wet out too? I have problems with springtail outside of my home but they are making their ways into my home thru the cracks!
A
Using a 25 lb. bag covers 5,000-10,000 square feet. You can use them as a broadcast or a perimeter treatment directly around the structrue of the home. It is recommended that you water the granules in after application. When treating for springtails, moisture is the biggest contributor. If you can remove the moisture, the springtail population will go down. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Q
Lawn guy says I have some sort of centipede/millipede, that they'll go away by themselves, eventually. I hear it's because of all the rain and heat we've had. Will Bifen kill these things? They're everywhere! Around the pool, in the pool, in the grass, down the driveway
A

Bifen L/P Granules are easy to spread and will protect your lawn from millipedes and other pests for 2 to 3 months. Bifen IT is a great residual liquid formulation that is added to water and applied with a low-pressure sprayer can provide a powerful residual that continues working for 4 to 8 weeks following application. This residual liquid formulation can be sprayed along the outside perimeter of the home (especially under and around eaves, decks, patios, and window shutters), and inside along baseboards, in cracks and crevices, and other potential millipede harborages. You will know the residual is working because you will begin finding only dead millipedes rather than live ones. A lot of moisture are great thriving areas they prefer. Please find an article that you find helpful treating this insect in around your lawn.
