Fred from Lehigh Acres, Florida asked:

Q
Bigheaded ants: Need advice as how to treat and which product you have.
A
Insecticide granules such as Bifen granules would be a good choice to help control the population of big headed ants as it will last for 3-4 months. Bifen Granules will kill ants that venture on to treated areas.  Another great choice would be to use Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait. This bait is also labeled for big headed ants specifically and would be a great choice for your use. Extinguish Plus combines the power of hydramethylnon with an insect growth regulator (like birth control for ants) to kill big headed ant workers and prevent queens from laying fertile eggs. This product would kill the ants that picked up the bait and also kill the ants back at the colony

Micheal from Birmingham, AL asked:

Q
Can the Bifen Granules be used for black widows?
A
The Bifen Granules are not labeled for black widows or spider control in general and would not work for your needs. To control black widows or any other spider, you have to not only treat with the appropriate chemicals, like Cyper WP which comes in our Spider Control Kit, but also take the non-chemical steps of eliminating areas around the home that would be perfect living conditions for the spiders. You can see in our article How To Get Rid Of Black Widow Spiders, just what steps to take and where to look and treat to eliminate them from your environment. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Q
Bifen was spread accidently at base of our avocado trees. What are long term effects?
Can we consume the fruit from the avocado trees? Do we need to replace the mint it was also sprinkled on or leave as is?

Joy from Raleigh, NC asked:

Q
To kill and control ants, should I put the ant bait stations down first?
Or do the granules go down first or should I put them down at the same time?
A
We would not recommend applying Bifen Granules in the locations where you are setting the bait stations. This may interfere with the bait attractants Please find our article " Advantages of Ant Bait" for more information. Now if you are using a bait station that is not on the ground like Ant NO More, you can apply Bifen near the stations and you would want to apply the granular first.

Brian from RI asked:

Q
Will a large amount of rainfall decrease effectiveness of the Bifen Granules?
I put down a 10 foot wide barrier of Bifen granules in the lawn around our house to keep carpenter ants from entering. I planned to take advantage of natural rainfall to water the granules into the lawn. Unfortunately, what was forecast to be rain showers turned out to be 4 inches of rain as measured in our rain gauge. I don't think the water actually ran off and took the insecticide with it. However, will just the large amount of rainfall decrease its effectiveness in the soil? Should I apply another treatment?
A
A large amount of rain fall should not take away the effectiveness of Bifen Granules. especially if there was no run off. You would want to reapply in 2 months time.

G. from SF Bay Area, CA. asked:

Q
Can you use Bifen Granules in your home, and if so what do you use to apply it indoors?
I have ordered from your company several times, due to my ongoing problem with Springtails. I would like to get rid of them once, and for all so I am considering ordering Bifen Granules. My question is can you use this product in your home, and if so what do you use to apply it indoors? Please answer ASAP, because it has been over a month that I been dealing these horrible creatures! :(
A
Bifen granules can not be used indoors as this is a product designed to be watered in after placed down, and this application would not work indoors. You would need the Bifen IT, the concentrate version of the Bifen Granules that can be used indoors and outdoors. You would spray the Bifen inside around baseboards, cracks, crevices, windows and door frames and around plumbing pipes. You would also spray about 2-3 feet up the side of your foundation of your home and 2-3 feet out on the ground, and then create a barrier across the lawn with the Bifen granules. You will need to find the areas in and around your home where there seems to be a moisture issue. Please refer to our How To Get Rid Of Springtails article to see proper treatment methods for the pest and where to look for sources of the nesting site.

Bret from frederick maryland asked:

Q
Do Bifen Granules kill the gnats that fly around your face?
A
First you want to make sure to eliminate as much moisture in the area as possible. Bifen Granules are not specifically labeled for gnats. This does not mean it will not kill them. We recommend using a liquid concentrate like Talstar P . Talstar can be applied to trees, shrubs, lawns, indoors and in areas containing moisture.

Robert from Wilmingtons, NC asked:

Q
Is Bifen effective against ground pearl? In what form?
A
As far as we know there are no known insecticides that will work on Ground Pearl. Ground Pearl is a type of hearty armored scale, and other than natural enemies like ants, no true solution is available. The best solution to try is to reduce plant stress by following recommended fertility and irrigation recommendations to enable turfgrass tolerate the damage. You may also want to contact your local Cooperative Extension office to see if they have any recommendations.

Q
Scotts Edgeguard Mini Spreader- what setting do I use?
A

We don't have the exact spreader setting for your model spreader. The easiest way to determine the correct setting for you needs is outlined below:

If you need to use 3lbs of product per 1,000 sq ft you would add 3 lb of product to spreader, start with a medium setting, then apply product to a 20 x 50 ft area (1,000 sq ft).  If you have product left, your setting is too low.  If you run out of product, your setting is too high

Bifen LP will help control chinch bugs when it is put down during their season. Bifen LP does not control brown patch as brown patch is a fungus. You can see our full listing of fungicides for brown patch here: Brown Patch Products.

Ram from Manvel, TX asked:

Q
Can Bifen control Ghost Ants in my yard and vegetation area?
I have Ghost ants problem in my yard and they enter the house through weep holes. Can Bifen L/P eliminate these ants from my vegetation and stop entering the house? Can I use a hand spreader? What product can I spray on vegetation plants so that ghost ants/Sugar ants do not walk on these plants? Thanks
A
Bifen cannot be applied to a garden area under any circumstances.  It is a great product to apply in the yard and can be applied using any hand or push spreader, but it would have to be applied more than 10 feet away from any garden area.  For keeping ants out of a garden area, the only product labeled for this use would be a garden specific product such as our Fertilome Liquid Garden Spray which would help deter the ants from walking on your plants.
