Testimony of Pestab Satisfaction
By Charlotte on July 28, 2010
My husband and I live in the Hill Country of Central Texas. The land is rocky and we had many scorpions and were bitten a few times. A scorpion bite is not fun. We spray with Pestab solution around our house and garage after each rain. First we spray the outside of the house and then the inside. We still occasionally see a scorpion but when we do they are too weak from the poison to crawl off speedily like they usually do which enables us to finish them off before they bite us. Pestabs have definitely solved our scorpion problems.

Best bug killer I have purchased. Use inside and outside, kills roaches and spiders dead! No odor (or very little), does not harm walls or carpets. The amount you get will last a long, long, time, and the pellets give you a fresh batch every time you spray your perimeter.

Works great for beetles
By Cassidy on April 11, 2008
We have used Surrender PesTabs for years now from our local co-ops and have had trouble with them not stocking enough, so glad to have found larger quantity online. For folks in the Midwest, it works great in the early fall, first weekend in October, sprayed on the outside of the house just before they cut the soybean fields to prevent the orange beetles from getting in your house. You still get some that get in and die on their way, but 5 a week on the floor compared to 500 a night crawling around biting and stinking, you do the math!

This stuff is the best! I originally bought Surrender PesTabs from Atwoods, an agriculture store. This product killed my infestation of pests. My family and I had bought a used refrigerator which was infested with roaches, unknown to me. I used every product that is over the counter and nothing worked. I asked the clerk at Atwoods and he recommended this. I highly recommend this product.

Pestabs are the best!!
By Jerry on October 11, 2010
I have used these for several years now and they work the best of anything else I've used. They really take care of my Asian beetle, hornet, boxelder bug and other insect problems in the fall. It keeps killing the bugs for a longer time than it says in the instructions, even after a rain.
PesTabs Are Great
By Larry on November 21, 2013
Each fall here in our farming community our white home is inundated with swarms of Japanese lady beetles searching for a winter haven. A friend recommended this product many years ago and I must say that it is absolutely the best I have used. After one complete spraying of our house when the invaders just begin to swarm, it kills them and the oncoming swarms for more than two weeks, even after rain. The product is also effective on other insect pests such as spiders, box elder bugs, and centipedes.
By Judy on November 21, 2013
We have been using Pestabs for many years.....the best stuff for Asian beetles. Don't ever stop selling it. Thank you.
By Fred on September 27, 2013
I've been using Pestabs for several years. I arrived at this product through the process of testing. I started my pest control method by doing what everyone does, spraying all the plants with a pesticide which was directed at a certain bug. This was costly due to the variety of bugs and bug killers that had to be purchased. This system required you to spray different killers on certain plants at various times of the year. I could go on but you know what I'm getting at, it was costly and really didn't work. Still had those pests. I came across Pestabs through this trial and error system. When I read that the bug didn't have to eat the plant but only had to "walk" across it, got my attention. The method I now use is to spray periodically, every 3 to 6 months, depending on the season. All hard surface areas get sprayed. My way of mixing the solution is to use 3 tabs per gallon of water. I use a two gallon sprayer so six tabs are used but I do not just drop them into the water. I use a quart container of warm water, take six tablets and smash each tablet with a plastic mallet while they are still in the aluminum wrapper. This crushes the tablet into very small pieces, I than drop this into the warm water. This starts them to desolve. After all six have been dumped into the warm water I stir the solution and than pour it into the two gallon container. This process guarentees that everything is absorbed into the spray. This method was developed after seeing that remnents of the tablets remained after the spraying was done. I was convinced I had a winner the next morning after using Pestabs for the first time, there were several bugs laying upside down, their legs moving in the air, on thier way to their grave. This stuff works.
Deadly on earwigs and spiders
July 2, 2013
Great product have used for several years.Referred to me by a professional exterminator.Works great on earwigs and spiders,last and kills for weeks.Would highly recommend
Not a big fan
June 1, 2013
These tablets take too long to dissolve and leave a white stain on dark surfaces. Crushing them prior to putting in the tank will speed things up considerably. Residual seems to work on everything but ants. Carpenter ants were walking right over an area I treated a day prior with no problems although I continued to find dead beetles and scorpions weeks after treatment. I just ordered some Bifen IT and am hoping to have better luck this time around
best spider control there is!
By Yooper on May 22, 2013
We live in a high-spider area, near woods and water. We spray the exterior of our house with Pestab solution about once a month and we have no problem with spiders, either inside or out. Our daughters have an almost phobic fear of spiders and we never have to deal with seeing a spider :-)
Use of PresTabs
By Paul on December 17, 2012
Have used the tabs for several years, but now I cannot buy locally. Excellent product that does what it says.
Asian Beetle Control
By Ed on November 13, 2012
Surrender PesTabs are the best thing that I've ever used for insects around the house. (both inside and outside) I spray around windows, doors and baseboard every fall when the Asian Beetles want to come in for winter and most of them die before they get settled in. I recommend the PesTabs especially to those that are troubled with the Asian Beetle.
Garrage investation of ants
By Ant on October 23, 2012
Untilized your product mixed to max strength, Killed ants on contact and every other insect and spider in the gargage. So effective, everyone I've told about the product wants to get some. This stuff is great, would add mix with with warm water to aid in desolving the tablets. ALSO we have pet birds, so be very careful not to let them come in contact, pay close attention to the warnings!!!
Pest Tabs & Scorpions
By Tony on October 15, 2012
Bought to control scorpions in the house. Mixed 4 tabs to a gallon and sprayed the perimeter of all outside door openings. Did this about a month ago and has worked well until I just saw another a couple of days ago. May need to retreat.

October 12, 2009Larry asked:
QAre pest tabs safe to use on boat docks, if mixed correctly and sprayed with a light coat for spiders?
AYou can use Surrender PesTabs on a boat dock for spiders. Just be careful to try to keep as much on the boat dock as possible and not in the water. Pesticides are very lethal for fish, but usually if you have a dock on a large lake then a little overspray is not enough to damage any aquatic life.
March 28, 2010Dark asked:
QCan Surrender PesTabs be used to kill bedbugs?
A Surrender PesTabs can be used to aid in bedbug control, but must be kept to cracks and crevices around the infested room and it will only eliminate adult bedbugs. Surrender PesTabs cannot be sprayed on mattresses or box springs or other furniture. We recommend using Bedlam or Steri-Fab on mattresses and box springs, headboards, footboards and other furniture. We also carry several different bedbug kits to fit almost any need, and mattress and box spring encasements to help eliminate bedbug infestations.

September 8, 2010Scott asked:
QCan Surrender PesTabs be dissolved and used as a root drench for aphids in potted plants?
I have read that lambda-cyhalothrin is effective against aphids. If Surrender PesTabs are not suitable, do you have any other products with the same active ingredient designed for a root drench application? Also, I am considering a drench with imidacloprid instead.
ASurrender PesTabs cannot be used as a systemic insecticide. The active ingredient lambda-cyhalothrin is a synthetic pyrethroid and like almost all synthetic pyrethroids it binds to the soil and can not move through the root system of the plant. We do recommend using products with the active ingredient Imidacloprid for systemic applications. Merit can be used as a soil drench, soil injection, trunk injection or foliage spray.
April 3, 2012Veronica from Beeville, Tx asked:
QCan I use pestabs on my carpet?
ASurrender Pestabs are not labeled for use on carpet. Indoors Pestabs can only be sprayed in cracks and crevices.
July 1, 2011Patricia asked:
QIs it safe to use PesTabs to treat my porch and grass for fleas, will it kill the eggs?
AYou can apply PestTabs to your porch and grass safely for fleas, but it is not known for killing flea eggs. There are not actually many products at all that can kill flea eggs. Our most popular item for flea control outdoors is our Outdoor/Indoor Flea Control Kit.
March 14, 2013Francisco from Miami asked:
QWithin this tub how is the product? In individual envelopes?
AThe product is individually wrapped inside of the pail.
July 3, 2013Dione from Okmulgee,ok asked:
QI was spraying bed frame and baseboard with Pestabs and got it on carpet and bedding.Is it safe to walk barefo
And is it okay to sleep on the bed
AIf you wash your bedding and vacuum thoroughly the small little bit that landed on the carpet and bedding should not harm you. Please contact Control Solutions 281-892-2500 to discuss the exact amount that was sprayed on these areas.
October 10, 2013Corinne from Spring Valley Wi asked:
