Concentrated Deltamethrin Insecticide
One of the most widely used active ingredients in the world (for pest
control uses) is Deltamethrin, a synthetic pyrethroid material.
Deltamethrin is popular not only because of its effectiveness but also for
characteristics that allow the insecticide to work effectively at very low
D-Fense SC and Suspend SC
Both D-Fense and Suspend contain 4.75% Deltamethrin, have
very similar labels and are both practically odorless.
These Deltamethrin insecticide sprays used to control or eliminate a wide variety of pests such as spiders, bed bugs, ants, carpenter ants, fleas, ticks, clothes moths and many other household pests. Rates can vary for different pest control jobs but the highest rate needed for tough pests on the home (fleas, ticks, spiders) is only 1.5 ounces per gallon of water. The odorless solution is water safe and can be sprayed on carpets, upholstery, rugs, wood floors, tile floors and other types of flooring or fabrics that are not harmed by water.
Using 1.5 ounces of concentrated Deltamethrin product per gallon of water is considered the "clean out" rate by professionals. The clean out rate has better knock down power for spiders, ticks and other hard to kill pests in and around the home. Once pest populations are eliminated, use .750 ounces per gallon for regular spray treatment.
Suspend SC and D-Fense SC with Deltamethrin have a broad label that
