Cee from Cedar Hill, Texas asked:

Q
When spraying the Demon for roaches does it normally bring out more roaches than usual?
It seems as if the sightings are more frequent after using Demon.
A
Demon WP is a repellent and it is possible to be detected by the roaches.  However if you are following the instructions on the product label it should not bring out more than usual.  If you are not using a roach bait gel we recommend to use Maxforce FC Magnum. The Maxforce FC Magnum is the newest and fastest-acting roach bait ever by Maxforce. With Maxforce Magnum you get five times the fipronil, plus a new technology called ContactX(TM) which kills roaches by contact as well as ingestion.We also have an application video on Maxforce FC Magnum page to show how and where to apply the bait.

Demon WP is only labeled for spraying on cracks and crevices and baseboard areas so it would not be appropriate or flea control indoors.

Earl from Broken Arrow, OK asked:

Q
What is a good way to eliminate spiders in kitchen areas?
Looks like Demon WP will be a good choice for perimeter, attic and garage areas, but I'd like something to control those little spiders that show up around baseboards and corners, particularly in the kitchen. What do you recommend for insect control in kitchen and pantry areas? I live in a rural area. I see spiders, crickets, scorpions, beetles, etc. making their way indoors.
A
You should utilize glueboards to trap spiders and other insects in the kitchen and insecticides such as Demon WP or Cy Kick CS in other parts of the house and also around the exterior of the house for spider/insect control.

Tiara from Fort Lauderdale, Fl asked:

Q
Can I mix Demon WP with a pesticide and water or will it make the product less effective?
Can I mix Demon WP with a pesticide and water to make it more effective for a roach infestation or will it make the product less effective by using the pesticide? And if so what is a good pesticide to mix it with?
A
Demon WP alone with water works as a great insecticide  Depending on what you are treating for, you would mix 1 scoop or 1 packet into one gallon water. Please follow the product label for mixing and application.

Rachel from Henderson, tx asked:

Q
We keep honeybees but are having a huge scorpion problem in the house. Should I spray only inside?
I have not seen any honeybee land on house but we do have flowering plants around the house. I really need the scorpions gone as I have a two year old. We also have ant beds with no flowering plants around them and I would like to use the demon there if advisable.
A
You can use the Demon WP indoors and outdoors but to protect the honey bees you should limit the outdoor applications to those places without flowering plants or other places where the bees are known to forage.

Janet from 413 Columbiana rd Homewood, Al asked:

Q
Is Demon WP better than pesticides at Lowes?
I have been told that water soluable pesticides dry up quickly and then are no longer effective
A
Demon WP is a great product and is a professional strength product that will last about 1 month outdoors and about 3 months indoors. It does typically take up to 24 hours for insects to die after contacting treated areas. We do not have a way to compare it to products at Lowes as we are not sure what they carry.

Jason from Fort Lauderdale, Florida asked:

Q
I used DemonMax for ticks in my house - cracks, floorboards, etc. why am I still seeing tiny ticks!
I used 1oz for a gallon of water and added a growth regulator. I sprayed every room after vacuuming and carpet cleaning. I washed my dogs with a tick shampoo and I sprayed my couch as well....why are they still here? Will this product work?
A
How long it takes the ticks to die after they come into contact with a treated area will depend on a number of factors. It will depend on the maturity of the tick as well as how long they stayed on the treated area, how long it has been since the area was treated and the concentration that was used to treat the area. Demon Max is a great product for tick control - and you used the correct dosage. Typically it can take anywhere from a couple of hours to a day or so for them to die. It can take several weeks for you to stop seeing ticks indoors because the ticks like to stay hidden which also means they could be staying out of treated areas and eggs may hatch out prolonging the infestation. We recommend doing follow up treatments every two weeks at the highest usage rate of 1 oz of product per gallon of water until you do not see any ticks.

Lorelei from Calgary asked:

Q
What is the best product for spiders
I have a sever spider problem. When I walk into room there is alway web that hit your face even next day.The renters in the home say they they are falling off ceiling and that they have been bitten often. They are moving out of the home so if the product is somewhat toxic for a couple day it should be no problem.
A
One of our best products for spider control is Demon WP. Dilute it in a gallon of water and apply as a spray in the cracks, corners & crevices, and the perimeters of the rooms. Also, spray around the exterior as well. Spiders tend to like harboring in boxes or other cluttered areas. Consider the attics, basement, and closets for treatment as well.

Ryan from Bayonne, NJ asked:

Q
Spray Friday, exterminator come Monday?
If I spray Demon WP on Friday can the exterminator come and spray a different product on Monday, or would that render the products useless?
A
I would be wary of mixing chemicals. Over-applying this nature of chemical in your home can be a health hazard as well. You may want to wait two weeks before having someone come and spray.

Tony from Carencro la asked:

Q
Will Demon WP kill bugs in my yard that moles live on?
A
While the Demon WP is a great insecticide and covers a wide range of insects, it would not be our best recommendation for control of grubs and other insects the moles would feed on. A better option would be Merit Granules which is our top grub and lawn infesting pest control product. Please see the Merit Product Label for usage rates and instructions. Also, keep in mind that while eliminating the food sources of the moles in your lawns may temporarily deter them, it is rare that this method alone will eliminate them from your yard. You almost always must use a true Mole Control Product to completely get rid of your problem.

Heather from Kissimmee,FL asked:

Q
Is the Demon Wp residue safe to touch?
We sprayed our screened in porch with Demon and the white residue is on surfaces that are commonly touched by my 1 and 3 yr olds and 3 month old puppy? I wanna make sure it is safe for them to be touching the areas before I let them play back out there. We had to spray because of black widows.
A
Although, Demon WP works great on treating for spiders. We do not recommend applying it in that area where the kids and pets would be in very close contact. You can wash the residue off with hot water and soap.

Tone from Wilmington, De asked:

Q
What is the difference between Tempo Ultra WP and Demon WP
Which is better for stink bugs and spiders?
A

Demon WP and Tempo Ultra WP are both synthetic pyrethroids and work in much the same fashion and either one would be very effective for stink bugs and spiders.  Demon WP is actually the  product we sell in our overwintering kit for stinkbugs, ladybugs and cluster flys, it would also do a great job for spiders.

Duke from San Diego, CA asked:

Q
What happens to insecticide after mixed 24 hours
I read one of your Q&A that the insecticide should be used w/i 24 hours of mixing. I put a packet in a gallon container, mix & then fill a smaller sprayer and spray my apt as needed. It's been sitting around for over a day. Will it still be effective? Thank you
A
Using Diluted Demon Wp after it has been mixed 24 hours would not be advised. The reason being is that the active ingredient will start to break down and cause the solution to become less effective.

Kristina from Kilgore, TX asked:

Q
What am I doing wrong?
I used this product with an IGR. The first time I used 1 package to 1 gal of water (I also added 1 oz of IGR). I doubled both the next day when I came back and the house was still infested with fleas. We are moving into this home in the next few weeks and I can't seem to kill the fleas. I have fogged it 3 times and used Demon WP/IGR mix twice. What am I doing wrong?
A
Using that much chemical is what you are doing incorrectly. Fleas did not appear in the unit over night in the numbers you are seeing them, so expecting to get rid of them overnight is unreasonable. Demon is not recommended for use indoors for fleas as you can only treat baseboards with the product and not all the areas where they will hide. While the Demon is allowed to be mixed 2 scoops or 2 packets per gallon, using more IGR than what is labeled to be used is only wasting product. You should only be spraying every 2 weeks for fleas with both an approved insecticide for indoor use for fleas and an IGR. Fogging will only kill the adult fleas that are jumping around while the fog is going off. Foggers are only effective while they are active and leave behind no residual and will not penetrate flea eggs. Please review our tutorial on How To Get Rid of Fleas Indoors to effectively, accurately and safely treat for fleas. This will give you the best idea of what to do to get rid of the fleas as quickly as possible. Keep in mind that even using the right products, the right way it can take weeks to months to completely eliminate a flea infestation if its heavy to catch all the life cycles. You can review our video on the bottom of the page for Home Flea Treatment Indoors that shows you the steps you should take as well. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
