    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
    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
    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
    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
    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
    Does the Suspend SC work for bed bugs and how good it is?
    A
    Suspend SC does treat bed bugs. Now, however, research shows that some strains of bed bugs are resisitant to it. We recommend using Temprid SC, because it will treat pyrethroid resistantbed bugs and using double killing power of two different active ingredients. Temprid SC also has a very broad application label.

    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
    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
    When using Suspend SC do I need a respirator mask?
    Is Suspend SC bad to breath while treating interior off house?
    A
    For general treatment indoors, using a basic respirator mask such as the N95 Valved Respirator Mask would be fine to use but is not required.  When using products such as Suspend SC according to the product label it is safe to use and there would be no danger of inhaling any odors.

    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
    I have sprayed with Suspend SC but still active with small ants (slowed down, but still there). They look like tiny black ants and move very fast. I think they came in with mail.
    A
    Suspend SC is a great general pest control concentrate. However, the ants will have to contact the treated areas in order to be eradicated. For small black ants outside, I would recommend applying Termidor SC (1ft up and 1ft out) directly around the exterior foundation. I would also apply InVict Xpress Granules to areas that have activity in the lawn.

    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
    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
    Does Suspend SC kill termites?
    I have termites, and I need to get rid of them. Will this do it?
    A
    Suspend SC like many other products will kill termites if the product comes in direct contact with the termites.  However, it will only kill the termites that do contact it, not the termites or the queen that might be below the ground or deeper in the wood.  For this reason, a product called Termidor SC is considered to the best termite product available and is the most popular product used by professional companies today. Termidor SC will kill all of the termites in the colony, not just the ones that it touches.  You still need to have the product contact a few of the termites by drilling holes into the wood and treating them directly, or by treating the soil around the structure as explained in our "How To Do A Termite Treatment" article.

    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.
