    Q
    How often do you spray for roaches,once a week or more?
    A
    To treat for roaches we recommend spraying once every 21 days with suspend and also using a roach bait like Maxforce FC magnum. Apply the bait once a week. You want to bait high and spray low. Bait around counter tops, appliances, cabinets, bathrooms, etc. Please view our article on roach treatment.

    Q
    When should I apply Suspend SC? When there is rain in the forecast?
    I want to spray for earwigs outside but the weather forecast is predicting rain for the next two days, then 1 dry day, and then another two days of rain. The earwigs come into the house more frequently when it's wet outside so I really want to spray but if the rain washes it all away is this a waste of time? Is there a recommended rule of thumb as to when to spray and when not to spray?
    A
    The rule of thumb when applying insecticides outdoors: You need 24 hours before and after the application with no rain. You could probably get away with just having 24 hours after spraying as long as the surface you are spraying is dry at the time of the application. If the area is still wet, Suspend SC will not be able to adhere to the surface and will wash away. If it rains right after the application, you will again have a situation where the product could be washed away.

    Q
    Is Suspend SC safe for a home with infant and pets?
    An exterminator is going to use this product in my home, and I am concerned about safety for my 5 month old son, dog and two cats.
    A
    Yes, Suspend SC is safe once it is dry for children and pets. We would not recommend spraying when they are in the room. Once the product dries, it is safe for the children and pets to return to the room. It is colorless and virtually odorless so it will not be detable by them. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Q
    How often should I use Suspend SC around my house perimeter?
    I just used it around my perimeter and inside my basement. I had a lot of wolf spiders. How many times should I apply it or how often should I apply it?
    A
    Suspend SC can be applied once a month outdoors and every 3 months indoors. Use the higher concentration (1 ounce per gallon of water) outdoors for residual control.

    Q
    Will suspend SC stain my vinyl siding if I spray the entire exterior of my home.
    We live in a heavily wooded area. Other pesticides have stained our siding in the past. If sprayed directly on the vinyl siding (I plan on spraying the entire exterior of my home) will it stain...ever...?
    A
    Suspend SC is a water based insecticide that should not stain anything that water itself would not stain. Having said that we always recommend that you test any product you choose on a small inconspicuous area to be sure staining will not occur. Sometimes old paint can be an issue when using any product.

    Q
    Will Suspend SC harm my dogs? What about birds, snakes, or lizards?
    Some of them eat bugs and I don't want one to die from it.
    A

    Suspend SC will not harm animals as long as it is used as directed.  You will need to keep pets out of the area while you are applying the product and until it has dried completely.  You may notice a reduction in the population of birds, snakes, and lizards over time, since Suspend SC will be killing the insects that are their food source, which will cause them to leave the area in order to find food elsewhere.

    Q
    Can linens and clothing be washed in Suspend SC?
    A
    Suspend SC cannot be used as a washing additive. Any insect or insect egg on bedding or clothing will be killed in the normal washing/drying cycles and insecticides do not need to be added to the wash for this to happen. Adding insecticides in this way can be very dangerous for anyone using the items.

    Q
    Is it acceptable to spray under the oven and frig. w/o moving them to access the cracks and crevices?
    A
    If you are unable to access the cracks and crevices behind appliances, using the wand on your hand pump sprayer, reach as far under the appliance as you can to apply the solution to the cracks and crevices and in between the appliances.

    Q
    What is the best product for use around the house, Demon WP or Suspend SC?
    Have had some success with your Suspend product with the fire ants and large roaches. Silverfish are already in the house. Neighbors are recommending your Demon product for better barrier control for ants and roaches. Please recommend best overall product. Also recommend product for Silverfish.
    A
    Suspend SC and Demon WP are both synthetic pyrethroid products and both offer great control of the pests you mentioned. Demon WP will last a bit longer outdoors and since it is a wettable powder it also stays on the surface of porous areas such as concrete or wood which creates a greater opportunity for insects to come into contact with it. The downside to this is that Demon WP will leave behind a white powdery residue that is especially noticeable on dark surfaces. Both Demon WP and Suspend SC can be used indoors for silverfish control but because of the white powdery residue that Demon WP can leave behind it may be best to stick with Suspend SC for this use. You can also use Dekko Silverfish Paks to help control the silverfish in hidden areas indoors. Silverfish simply eat through the pack and ingest the poison inside. Place in closets, drawers, bookcases, basements, garages and other dark hidden places. Each pack lasts up to 4 months.

    Q
    If any of the Suspend SC were to get on the apple tree, would it damage the tree or the fruit?
    I have carpenter bees boring into my fence. There is also an apple tree in the immediate vicinity. If any of the Suspend SC were to get on the apple tree, would it damage the tree or the fruit? Thanks.
    A
    Suspend SC will not damage the tree or the apples.  However, if you are going to harvest the apples you should wash them just to be safe before consuming. It would be best to not spray on a windy day where there would be a possibility of getting the Suspend SC on the apples.

    Q
    Does Suspend SC work on carpet beetles?
    We're having an infestation in our house. If so, how often should one spray?
    A
    Yes, Suspend SC is labeled for carpet beetle control and it will eliminate carpet beetles that come into contact with treated areas. It is very important that the source of the infestation (where the damaging larva is harboring) is discovered and eliminated, not just the visible adult insects you see wandering around. Until you find out what that is and deal with it you will continue to get more of the carpet beetles emerging from hiding. Carpet beetles may be as likely to feed on grain based food materials as they are on animal byproducts. Pet foods stored in forgotten places, baking goods left too long in the cupboard, rodent baits tossed in the attic - all of these are quite susceptible to carpet beetle feeding. Plus, you also have the typical carpet beetle diets of dead insects (wasp nests in the attic, dead insects in window sills), feathers (bird nests, dead birds), hair (dead rodents, wool products, trophy mounts), and other things made from animal byproducts. Once the source of the infestation is removed or cleaned, using Suspend SC will help get rid of the annoying adult beetles. You can spray once a month until all of the beetles are gone.

    Q
    Does Suspend kill cat fleas and its eggs?
    I saw an abandoned cat on the street and took it home in my garage. It was infested with fleas. I am afraid my house will be infested with fleas. I just want to make take precaution as I have a dog at home.
    A

    Suspend SC†will kill adult fleas. To take care of the immature fleas, you want to incorporate an IGR. You can mix in Precor IGR with the Suspend and water. Please see our Flea Guide for the best tips and videos for Flea control and prevention. You should also be sure to treat the animals with products approved for this use.

    Q
    How much of Suspend and Gentrol do I mix together to get best results for bedbugs?
    I read that you can mix gentrol with a gallon of water per ounce or a gallon of pesticide. But a gallon of suspend is like 300 bucks. What do i do? I need to get rid of these suckers but they drained my bank account already.
    A
    You will mix 1 fl oz of Suspend and 1 fl oz of Gentrol together in 1 gallon of water for bedbug applications. Suspend and Gentrol are both concentrates.

    Q
    Some concerns from a parent and pet owner.
    My wife and I live in a small 3 bedroom house and have been having some problems with carpet beetles. We did a good vacuuming last fall and had no additional problems through the winter. Now this past week in March as the weather is starting to warm, I've been noticing adult beetles crawling around, more so in the kitchen area. We do not know how where they are getting in. They like to hang out around the stove and refrigerator (where we did a very thorough cleaning last fall because of them). We also noticed some larvae behind our couch because it's up against a wall and also under our bed around the baseboards. I have two questions: 1. Can this be applied to crevices where the baseboard meets the carpet? I was not sure if this would be OK or not since carpet is porous. I would only be treating the crevices, not the entire carpet area of course. Is this an acceptable application of the product? Or would I need something specifically for porous services? 2. I want to try doing the pest control on my own, but my main concern is obviously the safety of my child and pets. I know that this is safe for pets and kids after things have dried, but our child is 16 months old and into everything. I obviously would allow time for the product to completely dry. But say my kid decides for some reason he wan't to lick the carpet in the area that was treated and dried, (even though we try to keep an eye on him at all times), would there be a danger if something like that were to happen? Same question if a pet licked a dry treated area. These are my two main concerns about doing the treatment myself. Your answers are truly appreciated.
    A
    Yes, it seems that you are taking all the correct steps to treat for carpet beetles. Please review our Carpet Beetle control page. Along with persistant vacuuming, application of Suspend, we recommend to also use Gentrol IGR. Gentrol will further break down the reproduction cycle. Rest assured that after dilution, there is only a large enough active ingredient to kill small insects. Treated areas are safe for children and pets to be around after haing dried. This will take 1-2 hours. Please call us at 866-581-7378 so that we can better assist you with your treatment.

    Q
    Does Suspend SC work well in killing scorpions?
    A
    Suspend is a good product for scorpions, however there are products that will yield faster results. 

    Our most popular product for Arizona residents is definitely our Demon WP.  Suspend SC and many other products are also good, but not as strong as Demon.  Since Demon WP is a powder that is mixed with water, it is easier for scorpions to pick up on their body and faster acting.  Demon WP packs a punch which is what you need for the Arizona scorpions, spiders, and other insects.  It is very effective, yet very safe around children and pets at the same time.  It is a general use product that is labeled for all insects and is a great all around use product.  You should re-apply the product every 30 to 60 days for best results. 

     

    Here is a link to the Demon WP:

    Q
    Is Suspend SC effective against scorpions?
    A
    Yes, Suspend SC is labeled to treat scorpions as it is a suspendable concentrate, making it easier for the scorpion to pick up. You would mix 1.5 fl oz Suspend SC into one gallon of water for scorpion control.
