Pest Control Kits
Money Saving Kits for Different Pest Control Jobs
Each "kit" listed has been designed to save you money when
eliminating or controlling different household
pests. A kit is simply a group of products or equipment needed to
control pests in and around homes or businesses; many kits are also available
without equipment, assuming that the end user does not need to purchase pest
control equipment such as pump sprayers or broadcast/ hose-end sprayers.
Most kits contain an insecticide
concentrate for treating in and around certain structures. These
insecticides not only control the pest for which the kit was created but your
added bonus is that professional strength pesticides are usually labeled for
many pests found in and around your home. When choosing a kit, click on
the product description links to view different bugs that can be controlled with
each product. It is also important to know if a particular material is
labeled for indoors, outdoors or both.
The list of available kits is constantly growing because we listen to you,
the consumer. If you there is a combination of products and/ or equipment
needed for a pest you often encounter, let
us know what you believe would be a convenient, safe combination kit.
Our pest control kits are used for treating a variety of pests with
different treatment methods. While some people need or desire to use
sprays to control their targeted pests, others prefer to use insect
baits. The following kits are used to control Fireants,
Clothes Moths, household ants, spiders, wasps, fleas, Boxelder bugs, Carpenter
Bees, Cockroaches, Asian Lady Beetles and others.
Bed Bug Combo Kit
Bed bug extermination is hard enough; use the best products available and
get rid of the bugs. Insecticides alone will not get the job done.
Without elbow grease, patience, endurance and correct techniques, you will not
get rid of a bed bug infestation.
Most people want to either "hose down" their homes with an
insecticide, set off "bug bombs" and blame other people and bad
products on their failure.
Bed bugs do not go away with just a couple of treatments. Even when
correct products are used, you will see these stubborn pests continue to pop up
in different locations -- about the time you thought you had them under control.
Mattresses do need taken care of. NEVER use an insecticide on a mattress
or box spring unless the insecticide label allows such use.
Bedlam aerosol does allow spraying of mattresses. This is only one small
step in eliminating bed bugs from a home. Spraying baseboards as well as
flooring, rugs, carpets underneath and around bed frames is a big help but not a
stand alone technique. When spraying such areas, make sure that your
insecticide is water-safe for fabrics and materials. Keep children and
pets off of treated surfaces until dry. Onslaught is one of many products
cut out to do a professional job in such areas. Gentrol IGR can also be
added to your insecticide solution. Insecticides kill adult or visible
insects. An IGR helps prevent immature insects from growing up.
Immature insects will not be able to
mature to their next stage. If they cannot reach adult stage, they cannot
Once sprayed areas have been allowed to dry, every possible crack, crevice,
entry point, hiding place and wall void needs to be treated. In other
words, if there is a place where bed bugs can hide but where you cannot spray,
these areas need to be treated with a good insecticide dust that is odorless and
long-lasting. This is the hard work that most people skip over or do not
repeat as necessary.
When dusting cracks and crevices, use a hand bellows duster (aka Crusader
Duster) which will allow you to do a good, safe, neat job. After you have
finished dusting voids and crevices, there should be no visible dust in the
area. Dust should be where the bugs hide and where sprays cannot
reach. This phrase is repeated often because it is the most over-looked in
controlling pests such as bed bugs, ticks, mites, etc.
Onslaught, Bedlam, Chapin sprayer and PyGanic Dust are all in the Bed Bug Combo
Kit, along with a good hand bellows duster.
Bed Bug Combo Kit
Tempo Kits contain a combination of insecticide spray concentrate,
insecticide dust and equipment needed for proper applications. This kit is
needed for control or elimination of Boxelder Bugs and
Asian Lady Beetles but is
also used to control roaches,
ants and other listed pests in homes and
businesses. Tempo products are labeled for use in food handling areas of
restaurants and other commercial food preparation facilities. Controlling
pests in restaurants can be different from controlling the same pests in a
The main products in Tempo kits are Tempo WP and
Delta Dust. Tempo WP is
an insecticide concentrate in powder form. The powder concentrate is mixed
with water to create an odorless insect spray that gives a long residual (90
days or more when used indoors) for control of many different bugs. Delta
Dust is an odorless, ready to use insecticide dust that is applied to cracks,
crevices, hiding places and entry points where targeted bugs usually frequent
but where people and pets do not come into contact with the material.
Delta Dust is a water-proof product, making it especially good for treating
areas that tend to accumulate moisture that would destroy the pesticide
qualities of conventional, over the counter dusts. Both kits also contain
a hand bellows duster for precise application of Delta Dust and other
professional insecticide dusts. Choose the Tempo Kit that suits your

Ant Bait Kit
The Ant Bait Kit contains a combination of two Maxforce
professional baits that are combined for indoor and outdoor use. Use this
kit if you are dealing with an on-going Pharaoh Ant infestation or if the ant
population you have is not responding to a your contact spray and/or dust
program. Before purchasing any ant bait or combination of indoor and
outdoor baits you should first identify and research the ants in your
home. The reasons for this are simple: while certain species of ants (such
as Pharaoh Ants) can cause worse problems when treated with sprays, other ants
(such as Crazy Ants) rarely respond to baits. There are also times when
ant populations are so tremendous around a home that using any ant bait can be a
waste of time.
Any time we can entice ants to feed consistently on an ant bait, we are cutting
down on amount of products needed in control procedures and we are cutting down
on our own labor. Contact insecticides require that the targeted pest (in
this case, ants) to come into contact with the material. The majority of
the foraging workers must come into contact with your spray or little damage is
done to the colony or colonies. Once ants start accepting your bait on a
consistent level, the ants do all of the work!
The Ant Bait Kit contains 1 large pouch of Maxforce FC Ant Bait Stations and
a 8 ounce container of Maxforce Granular
The granular bait can be scattered lightly in attics, around the exterior of the
building and placed carefully in wall voids. Each 8 ounce container can
cover 5,000 to 10,000 square feet of area. The bait stations are not your
average solid bait product. Maxforce FC Ant Bait Stations contain superior
attractants not found in other baits. Each pouch of Maxforce bait stations
for ants contains 24 stations.

Ant Exterminator Kit
The Ant Exterminator Kit contains
contact insecticides in two forms: dust and spray. The kit also contains
all the equipment needed to safely apply the products in and around the home to
control ants, roaches,
crickets and numerous
other household pests.
In many coastal states (as well as other areas around the
country) people will find that they are constantly fighting large populations of
small ants. These pests either will not accept baits on a basis that is
consistent enough to eliminate the colonies or the ants will accept baits but
the onslaught of crawling pests just will not stop.
Crazy Ants (and other small ants) rarely accept bait formulations. Results
vary (in different parts of the United States) when baiting for Odorous
House Ants but must of our customers complain that this particular pest
ignores their best baiting programs.
There are professional and over the counter baits that list these small ants on
their labels but the ants are usually too finicky or too sensitive to feed on
the bait on a constant basis. When the bugs stop feeding on the bait it is
time to switch to materials which have a contact kill instead of a kill by
infestations often call for pest control products other than baits. Using Advance Dual Choice or Maxforce
Ant Killer Gel indoors will help reduce visible ants in your home - but this
method often does not stop the tremendous numbers of ants that continue to
invade the structure. It is encouraging to watch ants feed on your indoor
bait but if they continuously invade the home, other elimination methods should
be added to your pest management program. We occasionally hear from
clients in California that tell us their ant bait is not working. When
asked, they do admit that the Argentine ants have eaten most (if not all) of
their bait. This tells us that the customer is using a good bait but there
are just too many foraging ants (from multiple colonies) to continue using baits
as a stand-alone tool.
If you have encountered any stubborn or severe ant populations in your home (or
business) that resemble the situations discussed here, your best bet is to use a
combination of contact residual spray and crack & crevice dust. Light
infestations or simple preventative pest control jobs can be handled with a
professional residual treatment. Heavier or stubborn problems usually
require a follow-up, using a safe, reliable insecticide dust that is applied to
areas you cannot reach with a spray.
Choose a spray that is odorless and labeled for safe use indoors and
outdoors. Moderate infestations of Crazy Ants, Odorous House Ants or other
indoor pest problems can be taken care of by using Demon
WP, Cyper WP, Suspend
SC or Demand CS.
NEW GENERICS: Cyper WP
(same as Demon WP), D-Fense
SC (same as Suspend SC), Cyzmic
CS (same as Demand SC). These products contain the same active
ingredient at same strength as their name brand counterparts -- at a much lower
price. In most of our pest control kits, these products are already in
Heavier infestations of these listed ants will require an application of Delta
Dust or Drione Dust in wall voids, cracks,
crevices or any area where ants hide or enter a room. In other words, use
your dust in areas where people and pets will not come into contact with the
product but your targeted ants will forage. Both Delta and Drione are
excellent dusts but we prefer to use Delta Dust when killing ants. Drione
Dust has a great knock-down of many household pests but it must not come into
contact with any moisture. A damp situation will quickly ruin Drione
Dust. Delta Dust is the world's only water-proof insecticide dust.
When applied in walls close to plumbing or other areas where condensation or
moisture is present, Delta Dust will continue to kill ants, roaches, silverfish
and many other pests.
Use your Crusader Duster when applying dust
to cracks and crevices. The dust is forced deep into areas (where pests
crawl or forage) that cannot be reached with conventional liquid sprays or
aerosol insecticides. Dusts that are applied with a hand bellows duster
will also stick to surfaces instead of merely piling up. Crusader Dusters
force dust quickly through the application tube, giving the dust particles a
charge. The positive/ negative charge created between the dust and hidden
areas where dust is applied helps your dust stick to most unseen surfaces.
This creates a lethal environment for bugs. An insect or mite will walk
around or avoid a pile of dust but they cannot escape thin layers that cover all

Carpenter Bee Elimination Kits
Carpenter Bees can be very destructive and they can also be
tough to exterminate. When dealing with a Carpenter Bee problem it is best
to combine a good residual spray with a fast acting, residual dust. Our Carpenter
Bee Kits contain everything needed to protect your buildings from
destructive wood bees.
There are three different kits to choose from. The first two kits are
identical with the exception of spray equipment. Many of our customers own
a good pump type garden sprayer but need the products used in bee control.
The third kit is designed especially for extreme infestations on log homes or
homes that have cedar siding.
A spray and dust combination is required because of the toughness of the
targeted pest. Using your spray, first treat in and around all visible
holes or entrance points used by the carpenter bee. You should also treat
any surface where you wish to discourage the bees from boring or drilling.
Suggested products are water-safe for most materials. Once the spray
treatment has been allowed to dry thoroughly (especially in holes and other
protected areas) it is time to treat all holes and possible entry points with
your dust. Drione Dust (applied with a Crusader Duster) will give best

Carpenter Bee Kit # 3 contains 1 quart Cynoff EC, Drione Dust, Crusader Duster and
a hose end sprayer. Cynoff EC is mixed with water and applied through a pump
type sprayer or applied with the hose end sprayer. The hose end sprayer makes for
easier application (and broader coverage) when the user needs to broadcast
larger areas such as the sides of a building. Once all wood bee holes and
other surfaces have been allowed to dry thoroughly, Drione Dust must be applied
to all existing holes.

Clothes Moth Elimination Kit
The elimination of clothes moths (and other fabric pests) can
become very involved. The first and most important step is the one step
everyone wants to avoid and for this reason their pest management program
fails. The first step is a two-fold sanitation procedure: cleaning all
clothes in infested area and detailed vacuuming/ cleaning of the area. If
all clothing is not dry cleaned and all cracks, crevices and flooring are not
properly cleaned, all the chemicals in world will not solve your clothes moth
After all sanitation procedures have been followed, the effected area needs to
be treated with a water-safe, odorless product that is labeled for indoor use.
D-Fense SC will take care of clothes moth larvae and other fabric pests.
After spraying baseboards, floors, carpets, etc., you need to dust all possible
cracks and crevices with Drione Dust.
Our clothes moth elimination kit is the same as Carpenter Bee Kit #1.

Fireant Elimination Kits
When the use of ant baits is not desirable or when a faster
knock down of fireants
is needed, use one of the fireant kits. Each kit contains an insecticide
concentrate that is used for mixing and drenching fire ant mounds; each kit also
contains a bag of dry, granular insecticide used for broadcasting certain
areas. The kits also have other options to suit your needs. You can
choose between two different active ingredients (Cypermethrin,

Flea Elimination Kits
Fleas are considered a general household pests, just as ants,
roaches, silverfish and other bugs. However, eliminating certain pests in
the GHP category often requires different techniques. Fleas, ticks, carpet
beetles or any other pest that is found in your carpets and furniture will
require specific products and treatment method to solve your pest problem.
Indoor Flea Control
The first absolute "must" for an indoor flea job is
to use products that are labeled for indoor flea use.
In order for an insecticide concentrate to be given an indoor flea label, it is
tested for specific safety measures. Once this type of product has been
properly applied and treated surfaces have been allowed to dry, the treated
areas must be safe for people and pets. Professionals in charge of
formulating, testing and marketing indoor flea products have extensive knowledge
of various situations or environments where these pesticides are to be
used. For instance, they know that cats and dogs lay on these surfaces and
that they groom themselves, licking their paws and feet. Small
children crawl and play on these surfaces; small children also pick up many
items off the floor and place them in their mouths. All of these
situations (as well as many others) are taken into consideration before an
insecticide or IGR concentrate is given the all important "indoor flea
The next "must" is that the material be water safe for fabrics in your
home. Exterminating fleas, ticks, bed bugs, carpet beetles and others
requires spraying floors, carpets, rugs, furniture and other indoor items.
A "water safe" product will not stain a fabric that water does not
stain. If you an odd object in your home, you can first test a portion of
the object to see if it stains or fades before applying your product.
When dealing with an indoor infestation of fleas, a
combination of products should be used. You need an insecticide and an
insect growth regulator (IGR) used in together. The insecticide kills
adult fleas as they hatch; the IGR prevents all eggs and larvae from growing up
or maturing into biting, jumping, reproducing adult fleas.
If you spray baseboards and cabinets with a professional insecticide, you can
expect to have a residual action of about 4 weeks. However, do not expect
to see more than 2 weeks residual inside your home for adult flea populations
found in your rugs, carpets or furniture. For this reason, a second or
follow up treatment is required for most flea infestations in homes.
The IGR used in this type of job does not need a second application, unless
carpets are steam cleaned. Under normal indoor circumstances, an IGR will
last from 3 to 6 months.
When choosing products for an indoor flea problem, you will
want to use an odorless or super low odor combination. We have had great
results using D-Fense SC insecticide or Permethrin SFR and Nylar IGR. There are other
insecticides that can be used and Methoprene is an
alternative IGR that will work.
Our indoor flea kit contains 1 quart Permethrin SFR, a 1 ounce bottle of Nylar IGR, 1
pint of Petcor Flea Spray and a Chapin pump type garden sprayer.
Each 1 ounce
bottle of Nylar IGR will cover up to 1,500 square feet of flooring and
furniture. If your home is larger than 1,500 square feet, order extra IGR
so that your home is covered sufficiently. The Petcor Flea Spray is for
spraying dogs, cats, puppies, kittens and pet beds or resting areas.
Petcor contains natural pyrethrins and Methoprene. The pyrethrins will
give you a quick knock down of existing fleas on your pet. Methoprene is
an IGR that will inhibit the growth of flea eggs and flea larvae on and around

Outdoor Flea Control
Exterminating fleas outdoors can pose problems not
encountered in other pest control jobs or even indoor flea control. First,
you will be dealing with a larger area; an average sized lot (front and back
yards combined) is usually about 10,000 square feet. You should choose and
insecticide that will economically cover such an area and also is safe for
people, pets and wildlife. Just as in indoor flea control, suggested
products will be safe for people and pets when used as directed and all people
and pets are kept out of treated areas until such areas have been allowed to
Next is correct application equipment. We constantly hear from customers
who purchased and used a great product but they cannot get their flea population
under control. This problem is usually traced back to how the materials
were sprayed on the lawn or ground. When someone insists on using a pump
type garden sprayer (such as the one used for indoor pest control) they
consistently fail to kill and control their targeted pests. When treating
outdoors for fleas, ticks or ants always use a hose-end sprayer. By
applying your insecticide with a hose end sprayer, the job goes faster and you
are applying the volume of product needed for the job. An average sized
back yard being between 4,000 and 6,000 square feet will need 15 to 20 gallons
of insecticide solution. You cannot properly apply this volume of product
with a hand held pump sprayer.
Outdoor Flea Kit
Our outdoor flea kit contains both insecticide and IGR for
spraying outdoors. For indoor problems, use the Indoor Flea Kit. The
outdoor flea kit has a hose end sprayer for application.
used in this kit is Permethrin
SFR. The 32 ounce container will cover almost 1 acre of ground.
For severe infestations, use 1 1/2 ounces of concentrate per 1,000 square feet
of area to be sprayed. For most jobs, 1 ounce of concentrate per 1,000
square feet will work. The kit also ships with a 4 ounce bottle of Nylar
IGR that will cover about 4,000 square feet of area. Combine Permethrin
Pro and Nylar to spray areas of heaviest infestation. Repeat your
Permethrin Pro application in 14 day intervals, as needed. Two
applications are normally needed for the average flea problem.
Each item in the kit can be purchased individually, but you
do save money any time you purchase supplies in pest control kits. If you
have a large area to cover, you might need to purchase NyGuard IGR, which yields
far more than the 4 ounce IG Regulator. Permethrin SFR is also available in
1.25 gallon containers
of concentrated Permethrin insecticide, for large jobs.
