How to Use Suspend SC
How Suspend SC Works
SUSPEND® SC Insecticide with DeltaGard offers the benefits of deltamethrin in a concentrated suspension of pure micro-crystals. The micro-crystals give Suspend SC a long residual (up to 3 months), and instead of being absorbed into porous materials, they stay on the surface. As a result, insects continue to contact them long after the insecticide has been applied. Yet Suspend SC leaves no visible residue, has virtually no odor, and won't clog spray equipment.
Suspend SC is a residual concentrate in the synthetic pyrethroid family of insecticides. The active ingredient Deltamethrin kills by acting as a high-power poison to the insect's central nervous system. Once poisoned, the insect’s nerve cells become excited, causing paralysis and eventual death. Suspend SC is diluted with water and applied with a sprayer. Once the product has dried, pests easily pick up the millions of microscopic particles left behind, and the active ingredient kills by contact and ingestion. Though Suspend SC is deadly to insects, it is very gentle on people and pets, when used properly, and is labeled for outdoor and indoor crack and crevice use.
The formulation of Suspend SC is a Suspended Concentrate, meaning finely ground particles of the active ingredient are suspended in water. Suspend SC has no additional solvents, but it does contain surfactants to help suspend the solid particles and biocides to prevent microbial growth and extend the shelf life.

ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Deltamethrin 4.75%
Suspend SC Application Instructions
*Suspend SC is a liquid insecticide concentrate which must be diluted with water and applied with a sprayer.
*It is best to shake your Suspend SC container a few times before dispensing, in case of any settling of solids.
* Treatments may be applied at 21-day intervals, or as necessary, to maintain adequate control.
* Treat specific areas that insects inhabit or where they are frequently found.
* Use 0.25 to 1.5 fluid ounces of SUSPEND® SC in one gallon of water and apply to adequately cover 1,000 sq. ft. Under conditions of severe pest infestations, when quick knockdown and/or longer residual control is desired, use 1 gallon of 0.06% per 1,000 sq. ft.
* When diluting, it is recommended to add approximately half the water to the spray tank, then add the proper amount of Suspend SC in accordance with the rates in the appropriate proportion. Agitate, then add the remaining water slowly to avoid excess foam. Thoroughly agitate the sprayer before using to insure proper suspension.
* If spraying is interrupted when using a backpack or handheld spray equipment, reinvert sprayer before use.
***ALWAYS READ THE PRODUCT LABEL COMPLETELY BEFORE USE***
1 Pint (16 oz.) of Suspend SC concentrate yields 10-64 gallons of finished solution, depending on mixing rate used. 1 Gallon (128 oz) of concentrate yields 85 to over 500 gallons of finished solution. One gallon of finished solution should cover approximately 1,000 square feet.
Standard Application Dilution rates / Mixing Ratios for Suspend SC:
*0.25-0.75 fl. oz. (7.5-22.7mL)/gal. of water – 0.01%-0.03% - maintenance or preventative treatments; smaller pests such as ants, fleas, pantry pests, and silverfish
*0.75-1.5 fl. oz. (22.7-45.4mL)/gal. of water – 0.03%-0.06% - cleanout treatments, heavier infestations, longer residual control; tougher pests such as cockroaches, spiders, bed bugs, and mosquitoes
*1.5 fl. oz. (45.4mL)/gal. of water – 0.06% - Termites (localized control only)
*0.75 fl. oz. (22.7mL)/gal. of water – 0.03% - Carpenter ants
Suspend SC is for use in the following areas:
Residential, industrial, and institutional control in and around households and other structures; commercial and residential turf and landscape ornamental plants; non-food and non-feed areas of Aircraft (cargo only), Apartment buildings, Bakeries, Bottling facilities, Breweries, Buses, Cafeterias, Candy plants, Canneries, Dairy product processing plants, Food manufacturing plants, Food processing plants, Food service establishments, Granaries & grain mills, Hospitals, Hotels, Houses, Industrial buildings, Installations, Kitchens, Laboratories, Mausoleums, Meat, poultry & egg processing & packaging plants, Mobile & motor homes, Nursing homes, Offices, Railcars, Restaurants, Schools, Ships & vessels, Trailers, Trucks, Warehouses, Wineries; carports, garages, storage sheds, unoccupied horse stables and pet kennels; athletic fields, recreational areas, residential landscapes, parks
Suspend SC may be applied as a crack and crevice or spot treatment in residential buildings and structures. Use 0.25-0.75 fl. oz./gal. of water for most treatments. Treat where pests are found or normally occur, such as around floors, baseboards, expansion joints, around water and sewer pipes, and voids formed by equipment or appliances. For spot applications, use a low pressure system with a fan-type nozzle to apply spot treatments. Do not treat entire floor, carpet or floor covering. Do not apply as a space spray. Application to furniture should be restricted to areas where prolonged contact by humans will not occur.
Suspend SC Insecticide can be converted to a foam and the foam used to treat structural voids to control insect and arthropod pests in walls, under slabs or in other void areas.
Bed bugs – Remove linens and wash before reuse. Apply to mattresses as a spot treatment, especially tufts, folds, and edges until moist. Apply to the interior of the frame. Allow to dry before remaking bed. We do not recommend Suspend SC as the sole treatment for bed bugs - instead it is recommended to use a variety of bed bug control products. There is also a high risk of resistance when using Suspend SC for bedbug treatment. See Get Rid of Bed Bugs for complete treatment recommendations.
Carpet Beetles, Fleas and Ticks – A total integrated pest management program is recommended. It is suggested that infested areas be thoroughly vacuumed prior to treatment. These areas include all carpet, upholstered furniture, baseboards and other indoor areas frequented by pets. The vacuum cleaner bag should be discarded in an outdoor trash container upon completion. Pet bedding should be cleaned or replaced. Apply Suspend SC Insecticide as a uniform coarse low-pressure spot or crack and crevice treatment to areas where these pests normally inhabit. Care should be taken to limit spot treatments to pet bedding and its surrounding area, infested floor coverings and pest habitats. Do not treat entire area of floor, carpet or floor coverings. Do not apply as a space spray. Restrict applications to furniture where no prolonged contact by humans will occur. Do not allow people or pets to contact treated areas until spray has dried. This product can be used with an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR). Effective flea control includes controlling the source of flea infestations. This can require treatment of pets with a product registered by EPA for such use and treating outside areas frequented by pets. Suspend SC Insecticide can also be applied out-of-doors for flea control. Do NOT treat pets with this product.
Use Suspend SC Insecticide to control outdoor pests by application as either a perimeter treatment, residual spray or broadcast application to lawns, grounds, and ornamental plantings.
For residual control, apply Suspend SC as a coarse low-pressure spray at the rate of 0.75 to 1.5 fl. oz./gal. of water to surfaces of buildings, porches, screens, window frames, eaves, patios, refuse dumps, garages, and lawns.
*1 Gallon of finished solution will generally cover 1,000 square feet when using a hand pump sprayer for spot or perimeter treatments.
Fire ants - Apply Suspend SC Insecticide as a drench. Dilute 1.5 fl oz per one gallon of water. Gently sprinkle 1 to 2 gallons of the diluted insecticide over the surface of each mound and surrounding area to a 2-foot diameter. For best results, apply in cool weather, 65 to 80°F or in early morning or late evening hours. Treat new mounds as they appear. Pressurized sprays may disturb the ants and cause migration, reducing product effectiveness.
Turfgrass applications – Uniform coverage is essential. Apply Suspend SC as a broadcast application using a conventional hydraulic boom-type sprayer or similar suitable equipment using a minimum of 2 gallons of water per 1000 square feet and 0.4 to 0.9 fl. oz./1000 sq. ft. (17.5 to 39 oz. per Acre). Delay irrigation or mowing for 24 hours after application for surface feeders such as cutworms and webworms. For sub-surface feeders such as mole crickets, irrigate with 0.25 to 0.5 inch of water immediately after application.
Ornamantel pests – Apply 4 to 8 fl. oz. per 100 gallons of water. Apply when pests become evident. Thorough coverage is required for best results. Apply with sufficient water to ensure coverage of upper and lower leaf surfaces.
See complete product label for additional instructions on outdoor applications.

Suspends the bugs
By Retired on October 27, 2008
Yes, that is right, Suspend SC suspends the bugs. It is so easy to apply and has no smell to it. I am glad to have found this website so I could do my own exterminating. If you can wash your hands or make a sandwich you can apply these chemicals. Make sure you buy a good pump sprayer at least as good as the one on this website for around $49. The first application will pay for itself. No more expensive visits from these so called professionals. Take it from me, retired early, I did not retire early by spending all my money. Good luck.

By Doyle on June 8, 2007
Before spraying with Suspend SC, both my home and the homes around me were infested badly with roaches, spiders, ants and centipedes. After spraying the perimeter of my home and the inside with Suspend SC, I was sweeping up roaches, centipedes and spiders by the hundreds for about three days. then I would find roaches and centipedes that had tried to cross the boundaries I had treated. They would die within about six feet of crossing it. I would recommend it for the novice or for the professional over all other products. I would recommend all the products from this company as excellent.

This product works!
By AJ in PA on October 9, 2008
We live in a valley that is also backed by woods. I just ordered Suspend SC this year to use for asian beetles. Every year since we moved into our older house they would come about this time (the first couple weeks of october) and they literally cover the outside of our home. They get into everything, our laundry, light fixtures, food, etc. They stink and stain everything. The only way we could do anything was by vacuuming them. But I told my husband I wasn't ruining another $500 vacuum because of this problem anymore. I did some research and found this site (sooo glad) because a few days ago we sprayed the entire outside of the house, especially the windows. As I sit here right now typing, there are no lady bugs entering my house! Last year at this time I would already have my vacuum out. I went outside and looked on the house and there are hardly any landing on the spray, and those that do seem to be dying quickly. I cannot thank this site enough. I am deadly afraid of spiders and get them bad in my basement as well, but after reading other reviews I guess I won't be worry about those either!

I bought a place in the woods and the spiders were very bad in my basement. My wife said I needed to do something or the washing was not going to get done (washer and dryer in basement). So I tried Suspend SC and the results are outstanding. It's like a bad massacre. The bugs don't have a chance. Suspend is the best at a good price.

Suspend made it rain carpenter ants
By Dave in Marietta, GA on July 7, 2015
I live in an old A-frame in a lightly wooded area. Every morning I would see dust and a very few dead carpenter ants laying around. A local pro recommended Suspend and Demon WP to solve my problem.. I sprayed the solution into the trusses and it absolutely RAINED dead carpenter ants for about two weeks. I must have swept up 10,000 ants. This stuff is spectacular
By Donna in Las Vegas NV on July 7, 2015
Very good product against bugs. Have been using this product for 12 yrs now and haven't had any problem.
By Bugless in Madera, CA on July 6, 2015
This is our 3rd bottle of Suspend SC. It kills everything and I will never use any of the ones you can buy at the local stores again. We have a rental and it had roaches, fleas, & bedbugs. We have managed to rid the place of these. We use it now to maintain. It is also great on spiders. Great value for the price.
By Gary in Rye, CO on July 6, 2015
Had previously used it for scorpion control. Found out it works on grasshoppers and Mormon crickets. Does one heck of a job. Saved the garden this year because of it. Sprayed 3 weeks ago and the area is still clean. Super stuff.
By Jeremy in Atlanta, GA on July 6, 2015
This is a very powerful and easy to apply insecticide that is used by many professional pest control companies. It is low odor and non staining. I personally don't spray it all over the house as that isn't the thing to do anymore. You can be just as effective by placing this product in areas where insects will be attracted. For example I spray the basement, underneath counters around the pipes, and window sills. That is generally enough to keep the bugs at bay inside. Then outside I spray the whole perimeter of the home including around all doors and windows that I can reach. The final item in fighting off bugs is keep any plants and trees cut away from your home so that bugs can't by pass the chemical. Now obviously this is a chemical barrier that doesn't actually physically stop insects. However it will quickly kill them should they make contact with the product. The targets will have to clean themselves in order to ingest the poison, which they eventually will. I also spray flower beds and plants that aren't to be eaten. This stops insects from killing or damaging those plants. It is important you keep this product off you. So don't spray this stuff into the wind or wear sandals and shorts. The one area this product fails is little black sugar ants. They have no problem surviving this formula and still get in the house. I have to use other products to fend them off, which is a shame. However that is the only pest that seems unaffected by this product (although termites probably won't be stopped by this solution). Still I have seen many other pests dying after applying this product and it is the main line of defense for my house. It is so much better than those weak home sprays you get at the big box stores. Plus I like to apply this product every month in the summer to keep the chemical barrier at its prime. This bottle lasts a long time for the average to medium size house.

This is the same product that the pros use (it was listed on my bill). I was paying $220 a season for a monthly application on the outside of my home. I bought this product and protect my house, my cottage and my rental properties for less than the cost of one container. I apply it every other month. It works great--no bugs. No more spiders at the rental units.

By Cliff in Austin Tx on June 12, 2015
I have rental properties in Austin Tx. Yes we do have pest. Suspend SC takes care of the problem. Suspend SC very reasonably priced. In fact my maintenance man doesn't keep track of when he sprayed the perimeter of the rentals. But what he does do is spray most any time he has a repair. For the cost of a special trip to spray. I could buy alot of Suspend SC. My tenants are very happy tenants.

April 23, 2010 R asked:
QWhat is the shelf life of Suspend SC and Demand CS?
I see no expiration date on my bottles of Talstar, Suspend SC and Demand CS. What is the shelf life on these products?
ATalstar P, Suspend SC and Demand CS have a shelf life of about 3-5 years from the date of purchase. They should be stored in a place where they are protected from over heating, freezing and direct sunlight to ensure the longest shelf life possible.
October 23, 2009 Crystal asked:
QI have small children and want to use Suspend SC for spider control in my home. Is it safe?
AYes, Suspend SC and all of our products are safe as long as you follow the instructions on the product label. When mixed with water, these products are only strong enough to kill small insects. You should keep all children and pets out of the room while you are treating. Use common sense when applying, you obviously do not want to spray on any toys or around pets food and water bowls. Wait 30 minutes for product to dry, then it is perfectly safe for children and pets to re-enter the room.
May 24, 2010 Dan asked:
QHow long can Suspend SC be stored for after mixing?
After mixing Suspend SC, can the unused portion in the sprayer be stored for a period of time?
AMost sprayer manufacturers warn against storing insecticides inside the sprayer. Storing liquids (even plain water) inside the sprayer can cause the rubber components to deteriorate quickly and make the sprayer inoperable. Only mix exactly what you can use and discard any left over solution and thoroughly rinse the sprayer after each use.
January 24, 2010 Maureen asked:
QCan I spray Suspend SC on anything inside the house?
I'm trying to get rid of what I am assuming to be bed bugs, but may be some other type of small insect that is biting at night. I am assuming and hoping that this product can get rid of whatever it is. Can I spray Suspend SC on anything inside the house? Where and on what can I spray this product?
ASuspend SC can applied to mattresses, especially tufts, folds, and edges until moist. You should also apply to the interior of the frame. Allow to dry before remaking bed. Also, you would want to treat around the perimeter of the room, baseboards, feet of the bed, etc. You may want to try one of our Bed Bug Kits which have a variety of products which are proven to treat bed bugs.

Darrien from Laveen, Az asked:
QWhat is the difference between Suspend SC and Suspend Polyzone? Which one is newer?
I am a longtime customer and usually buy Suspend SC. I noticed they now make a Suspend Polyzone. I am trying to determine which one is better. I know they are made by the same company.
A Suspend Polyzone is the newer, better version of Suspend SC. Suspend Polyzone has a polymer added to its formulation that enable it to last 90 days outdoors and work better on porous surfaces. Suspend SC will only last about 30 days outdoors.

Dan from Swanton Ohio asked:
QHow does Suspend compare to Bifen / Talstar for mosquitos. Is there a longer residual with Suspend?
A The outdoor residual effects of Suspend SC, Bifen IT, and Talstar P are all 30 days outdoors. However, if you would like a longer outdoor residual then Suspend Polyzone would be ideal for your mosquito control needs. Suspend Polyzone has a 90 day residual outdoors utilizing the same active ingredient as the regular Suspend SC but the added polymer allows the insecticide to adhere to surfaces better and resist the elements of weather.

Yen from Glendale, Az asked:
QMy Tenant complaints that the house has scopions. Can I apply Suspen SC to treat this problem? Thank you?

Philip from Saginaw asked:
QIs this Suspend SC safe for wildlife (birds, lizards) and beneficial insects?
I am concerned about affecting birds, lizards, and earthworms if I were to use this product.
A Suspend SC is not selective and will eliminate any insect that contacts the treated area, including beneficial insects. You can help eliminate the impact on beneficial insects by limiting the application to only areas where actually needed. After the prdocut has dried it is not harmful to other animals.

Helen from Windham Ct asked:
QLiving in CT and live Suspend SC
I bought this product when living in NC but have moved to CT. It says this cannot be shipped to CT. Is there another comparable product that kills ticks as effectively? I would like one exactly like Suspend SC
A Fenvastar EcoCap would be a great product to consider. It works just as well as Suspend but can be shipped to CT.

Laura from Broadway Va asked:
QCaterpillar infestation on my evergreen and rose bushes
I have sprayed Sevin concentrate 2 days in a row and my bushes are still filled with them. Help
A Suspend SC is labeled for Caterpillars. Directly spray the plant foliage and nest. The larvae are usually easy to contact if spraying is done in late morning when the larvae congregate on the tent surface to warm in the sun. Mechanical control is also helpful with this pest. The egg masses are easy to spot after the leaves have dropped in the fall. Simply clip off and crush or drop into a bucket of soapy water.
May 30, 2015
L. from Philadelphia, Pa asked:
QAre you sure Suspend SC is safe to use if you have cats?
I read that cats cannot process pyrethrins. While Suspend SC is supposed to be applied to crevices, the carpet still gets damp where it meets the wall and sometimes you'll get a puddle under the stove or fridge where you have to wipe up the excess. Have any long term studies been done around pets?
A Suspend SC is labeled to be safe for pets if they are not in the area during the application and while the surfaces are still wet. Once they are completely dry, they can return to the area that you have applied the product. The product will not reactivate if it gets wet again. Please contact Bayer for information on the studies that they have performed for long term safety. They can be reached at (800) 331-2867.
