What is the difference between Demand CS and Suspend Polyzone (besides the active ingredient)?
Which will be more effective at scorpion control? Which will last longer outside in the Arizona heat? Been usin Demand CS for several years successfully, but wonder if Suspend Polyzone might work better and have a longer residual.
The biggest difference between Demand CS and Suspend Polyzone is the residual they have outdoors. Suspend Polyzone was designed with special time release polymer coating to hold up in heat, cold, and irrigation for up to 90 days. Demand CS will last approx 30 days.
The treatment for Scorpions using either product is the same:
Treat areas where scorpions may hide. Treat known or suspected harborages on and around exterior walls. Apply spot treatments into cracks, crevices, weep holes or other access points into hollow block walls or masonry veneer. Spray around and beneath stones and along rocky areas. Scorpions will often harbor beneath the bark on trees, so inspect these areas and treat as required. When possible, remove piles of debris and building materials near the exterior wall that can harbor the pests. Apply a perimeter treatment to the exterior walls spraying 2-3ft up the foundation and 2-3ft out on the adjacent soil. You may treat around piles of firewood, but do not treat firewood with this product.
