What is the difference between Demon Max and Viper? Do you have a preference?

I have used Viper for several years now. I was wondering about Demon Max.


Demon Max and Martins Viper Insecticide have the same active ingredient and will essentially kill the same insects. They are made by two different manufacturers. Demon Max is an oil based product and has the potential to stain the areas where it is sprayed. It also has a very strong smell. They both have does have a quick knockdown as well. If you are looking for something with the same active ingredient as Demon Max and Viper (Cypermethrin), we would recommend Cyper WP. It is a wettable powder that is mixed with water. That does leave a white residue when sprayed. All of these products are excellent. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
