Q
Is cyper wp pet friendly?
A
As long as you use the Cyper WP appropriately and follow the product label instructions then it is safe for use around pets. You need to keep pets and children out of the area being sprayed both during treatment, and until all surfaces have dried which can take 1-2 hours.

Q
Any version that works longer than 30 days for Carpenter Bees?
A

We recommend looking at one of our Carpenter Bee Kits for a complete treatment program for Carpenter Bees. Most insecticides used outdoors will only have around a 30 day residual. Please read the information below for guidelines on how to do treat thoroughly for this pest.

Getting Rid of Carpenter Bees

Carpenter bees nest in wood; they do not eat it like termites. Before treating, make sure you have located all entry points of the bees, which look like perfectly round ½ inch holes. We sell all the products mentioned below, and all are included in our carpenter bee kits.

  • There will be male carpenter bees hovering around the openings. The male bees do not have stingers but may act aggressively and startle passersby. You can choose to use a knockdown aerosol to eliminate these bees or just swat them away. Females are equipped with stingers but rarely sting. 
  • An insecticide dust is the key product you will use to kill carpenter bees. A dust product like D-Fense Dust is perfect for the small holes that lead to the bee’s chambers. The bees will have to pass through the openings and will come in contact with the dust. Using a hand duster will ensure the dust can coat the tunnel surfaces and reach deep into the tunnels. There may be many entry holes and it is important to treat them all.
  • After you have treated the entry holes, the holes need to be plugged. However, you should not plug these holes while the bees are inside; they are likely to chew their way out. The larvae hatch and emerge in the spring – when you are most likely to notice them- so treat when you see them and notice the holes. Treat again in the summer and once more in early fall, before the bees return to their chambers to overwinter. It is very important to plug the holes because carpenter bees will return to their old nests every year. Use plastic or wooden plugs or putty and always finish the wood with varnish, sealant, or paint to further deter the bees.

Q
How to kill or control gecko lizards?
Have problem with geckos in garage and attic.
A

There are no toxic products labeled for geckos, lizards or any reptiles or amphibians, and given the highly beneficial nature of these creatures there is not likely to be any products for them any time soon.The reason they are on your property are because they can find food and proper habitat. Take away their food and they will forage somewhere else. Take away the conditions they need for hiding and they will seek refuge someplace else.

You really have two options here:

1.Exclusion. Total exclusion can be hard to achieve particularly around the roof-line where there are going to be gaps that would be very hard to close off, but there also could be some obvious flaws such as broken vent screens, holes around cables, pipes or wires, or gaps under doors. All of these can easily be closed with brush strips, caulking, copper mesh (Stuf-Fit), or some other suitable material. Exclusion is the best choice, because it is permanent, and eliminates or reduces the problem in the future too.

2.Outdoor habitat modification. In short, get rid of the reasons geckos are there in the first place. They are there because they are finding the food they need to survive (insects) and a place to harbor. If you can eliminate either of these essentials, you can get rid of the geckos. Spray a good residual insecticide such as Cyper WP around the outside of your home to help cut down on the number of insects the geckos are eating. If geckos cannot find enough food they will either move on or starve. Eliminate as much clutter and debris around the outside of your home as possible to eliminate the places geckos like to hide. Rake back mulch or rocks at least 6 inches from the structure.

 

If you need to get rid of the geckos that are already indoors the only options are catching them by hand or using glue boards placed in areas where the geckos travel.

Q
I want to use Cyper WP mix w/Nyguard IGR for inside fleas, can i broadcast Cyper inside?
Cyper WP label states inside fleas treatmet is crack/crevice only inside, but plan to broadcast spray the Nyguard, will I have to spray separately? Thanx
A
Cyper WP is labeled to be used for fleas outdoors only. This product should not be broadcast across your carpet. We would recommend using Onslaught Insecticide with the Nyguard IGR. This can be used indoors and outdoors.

Q
Can Cyper WP be used in flower beds?
I have seen numerous mention of it being safe for lawns. Unless I missed it, can it be used in flower beds with out little to no effect on plants and shrubs?
A
Cyper WP can be used on flower beds. However, you have to be careful because flower blossoms can be senstive to the product. You do not want to spray while bees are actively foraging. You will use the lower rate, which is 1 scoop per gallon of water. It does leave a white residue as well.

Another product that could be used that is labeled to be broadcast across the lawn, sprayed on trees, bushes, flowers, etc. is Bifen IT. This cannot be used on any type of edibles. You will mix 1 fl. oz. per gallon of water.

Q
Is it OK to Remove White Residue left by Cyper WP?
We have been pleased with the results of the Cyper WP, however don't like to see the white residue on our floors. Will mopping up the residue remove the active ingredient and negate our efforts to exterminate?
A
Cyper WP if mopped up will take any residual up. You would need to treat again after mopping. Please call us at 866-581-7378 if you are interested in a product that dries clear.

Q
Best spray insecticide to control Brown Recluse spiders in the home?
I wish to control them in the basement as well as the living area. I've been looking at Demon WP, Suspend SC and Demand CS. I'm wanting something that is residual so I don't have to spray them directly to control them. Would one of these products be better than the other or is there a better choice that I've not listed? Thank you.
A
Even though Brown Recluse spiders are very scary to have in your house they are no harder to get rid of than any other spider. The hardest part of getting rid of the brown recluse is finding them since they like to remain hidden. Cyper WP would be a great choice for indoor and outdoor spider control. The active ingredient in Cyper WP is cypermethrin, which is known to be one of the top choices for spider control. Spraying Cyper WP will also help to get rid of the insects that spiders feed on and that will help to stop new spiders from moving in. Indoors, spray around all baseboards, door frames, window frames, under appliances, in closets and storage rooms and in areas where utilities enter into the structure. Outdoors you should spray around the bottom of the foundation, on the ground adjacent to the foundation, door frames, window frames and places where the utilities enter into the structure.  We have included Cyper in our spider control kit, which also contains glue boards to help monitor the infestation (and help catch the spiders too).

Q
Can you use more than 2 scoops per gallon of Cyper WP?
When I recently used Cyper about a month ago I noticed that the roaches in the kitchen seemed unaffected by it. They literally crawl over where I sprayed unfazed. So I wanted to know is it safe to use 3 cups per gallon of water for this area? All other treated areas in and out the house are clear of everything but the kitchen remains unaffected.
A
No, you should not use more that 2 scoops of Cyper WP per gallon of water. We strongly recommend you use an IGR (insect growth regulator) such as Gentrol IGR, to stop the reproductive cyle of those roaches along with a roach bait such as Maxforce FC Magnum for optimal roach elimination. Please read over our Roach Control Article for more helpful hints regarding roach control.

Q
Demon Wp has worked well for me for 4yrs in S. FL. Your out so thought I'd try Cyper wp?
Wondering if the residual ingrd. that helps it stay outdoors is the same. Demon got rid of heavy roach ,spider infestation when I bought my home and has kept it away for 4yrs. I spray inside every 6mos and outside every 3. I did see today that your supposed to spray every month. My bad. I do mix it to the fullest 2 scoops per gallon and I empty a 2gallon sprayer each time around the house perimeter outside. I have a 1000 sq ft ranch home. I do the soffits and down 3ft and then the ground 3ft out and the bottom of the house 3ft up. Seems to be working hoping cyper will work as well?
A
Yes. Demon Wp 1lb jars have been discontinued. We recommend Cyper in its place. It is considered the "generic" of Demon and will do a fantastic job!

Q
Is cyper wp really good for roaches?
IS CYPER WP REALLY GOOD FOR A ROACH INFESTION ,MY INLAWS HOUSE IS INFESTED WITH ROACHES AND I WANT TO GET SOMETHING TO GET RID OF THOSE THINGS , I HAVE SOME SUSPEND CS BUT IM THINKING ABOUT ORDERING A JAR OF YOUR CYPER WP TO HELP OUT AS WELL IF ITS GOOD ON KILLING ROACHES
A
Cyper WP works great on roaches. However, we highly encourage you to use an IGR (insect growth regulator) such as Gentrol Point Source to prevent roaches from reproducing which will lessen the time it takes to gain complete control.

Q
Does Cyper WP Kill or put them to sleep?
I used the product yesterday and last night there were dead roaches outside everywhere. I went to clean up today after work and it seems like there weren't as many dead Roaches around, although still pleased with the results. It was windy today also, so its possible they blew away with the wind. Does this product kill the Roaches or just put them to sleep for a while? I noticed some of the roaches woke up when i was cleaning the area up. - Thank you
A
Cyper WP does in fact kill the insects. It is a slower kill so you may notice them at the end stage prior to death and some erratic movements can be observed, but it won't be long before they die.

Q
Which product has longer residual benefits against wasps, Delta Dust or Cyper WP?
I have an extreme problem with wasps in wood deck and pool fence. I can't let the kids even go out for fear they will disturb a nest. Trying to get ahead of the problem early this year.
A

You should apply a surface application with a spray such as Cyper WP that is labeled for wasps. This will give you a 30 day residual outdoors. If you know where the nesting location is, you can dust with Delta Dust to offer a longer added residual to the entry of the nest when the wasps are the least active at night. Make sure the kids are not near the treated area during application and until the product dries completely.

03/31/2014Jerry from Arkansas asked:

Q
After applying Cyper WP outside and letting it dry, can I let my cat outside?
The cat eats vegetation (grass, weeds,etc) that has been sprayed with Cyper WP. I can`t watch cat all the time to keep it from eating sprayed vegetation. I must spray vegetation to establish a perimeter around house to kill scorpions,etc. Is this harmful to my cat? Do you sell a bittering agent I can add to spray? If it rains a day or two after I spray will Cyper WP become toxic to animals when it gets rainsoaked? Thank you.
A
Cyper WP should be applied when your cat is not in the area and completely dry prior to re-entry. It is safe when dry and will not reactivate when it rains. We do not carry a separate bittering agent to apply to the insecticide. You should apply prior to a rainfall for the most effective pest control. It should not be applied to any edible vegetation.

Q
Can you please recommend a product for insects that invade in spring/summer in Minnesota?
We have the usual problem with spiders etc. We had a problem with carpenter ants in the past. We were using Orkin. We're ready to take this on by ourselves now.
A
Cyper WP would be a great choice for indoor and outdoor spider control as well as general pests. The active ingredient in Cyper WP is cypermethrin, which is known to be one of the top choices for spider control. Spraying Cyper WP will also help to get rid of the insects that spiders feed on and that will help to stop new spiders from moving in.

Q
Will Cyper Wp treat for bed bugs and mosquitos?
A
Cyper WP is not labeled to treat for bed bugs. Although it will work great on mosquitos and other insects, we recommend using one of our bed bug kits. We also recommend reviewing our article on treating for Bed bugs. The great thing about our bed bug kits is that you can use the insecticide like Fenvastar in Kit 2 to treat for mosquitos as well.
