Q. Masterline Bifenthrin 7.9-boxelder bug problem
I'd like to solve a boxelder bug problem (they like to congregate around our doorways), and I'm wondering how Masterline Bifenthrin 7.9 is supposed to be applied. Can you give me some more information? Thanks.
A. Thank you for contacting us with your question. Since Box Elder bugs like to reside in areas with lots of moisture its very likely you are finding them in your mulch or areas with lots of moisture. Masterline Bifenthrine will be a good product to use. It is recommended that you mix 1 oz of the concentrated solution with one gallon of water and thoroughly spray on the areas where you mostly see them. If you feel that it is quite an heavy infestation I would recommend that you first replace your mulch.
Q. We have tried EVERYTHING!!! And they seem to be coming back thicker each year and with every treatment! Sometimes we spray DAILY and it makes no impact. PLEASE HELP!!
A. If you are using a residual insecticide, it is not recommended to spray everyday. Moreover, concentrate residual insecticides have a delay kill effect and will not provide you with an instant knockdown kill. We recommend spraying the entire perimeter of the house with a pyrethroid active ingredient concentrate spray like Demon WP, Suspend SC, or LambdaStar 9.7.
Q. Boxelder bugs Control
I have boxelder bugs eating my plants in the flowers and bushes that we just spent several hundred dollars doing. I need to know what to use that will kill them before they do any more damage.
We recommend that you use a granular product to do a broadcast lawn treatment, as well as using a liquid concentrate product. Talstar granulars can be dispersed throughout the lawn for effective, broad treatment. If the plants/bushes/flowers are just ornamental,
we recommend you use Talstar Pro liquid concentrate to spray onto the necessary surfaces.
The product has a residual of 3-4 months depending on the external conditions. You may re-apply every couple months if necessary.

Q. About Box elder bugs
I have a Raintree would these Bux Elder Bugs be coming from this tree ? If so do you have any suggestion on what we should do, when it is in bloom it is beautiful and I really do not want to have it cut down. I live in Fl.
A. You can spray Talstar on ornamentals and also around the perimeter of your home so that they are unable to enter. Talstar will kill boxelder bugs on contact and has a residual of about 2-3 months.
Q. how about standard laundry bleach?
Thet are just coming out and soon to be a pest.
A. We do not recommend using standard laundry bleach for control against any type of pest. It is potentially very hazardous and will not provide an effective control. Also, please be specific on what your target pest is so that we may better assist you.
Q. is there something similar to Talstar? I am unable to find it in our area
We seem to be keeping them on the outside. We are just overrun with them.
A. Bifenthrin is Talstar's active ingredient. You can check your area to see if there is pesticide containing bifenthrin. If not, you can also place an order for Talstar online or by phone. We offer free shipping to the 48 continental states.
Q. Are boxelder bugs a type of beetle or what are they?
we didnt have them last year but the year before we were also overrun with them.
A. Boxelder bugs are a type of beetle. They are attracted to sources of moisture. We recommend spraying near pine straws, mulches, etc. to rid of them.
Q. Boxelder beetles in our basement adn santuary of checuh
A. Talstar Pro or Lambdastar 9.7 are the recommended products for true bugs like boxelder bugs or stink bugs. Although Talstar Pro does not have them on the label, we know that the bifenthrin active ingredient is very effective against boxelder bugs. Do not apply both products in the same area at the same time. One one of either is necessary. Inside, you must only treat the baseboards, window sills, door frames, and cracks and crevices that are under or behind furniture. Outside, a perimeter application must be made around the entire perimeter of the structure. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.

Q. Box elder bugs EVERYWHERE
I live next to the woods and the wherever the sun is hitting the house, you can bet there will be hundreds-thousands of box elder bugs. There are doors to outside that we won't even open due to the amount of box elder bugs. What do I need to use and do we need to manage to spray the entire side of the house outside?
A. We recommend using a pyrethroid active ingredient to treat boxelder bugs. The leading pyrethroid insecticides are Suspend SC, Talstar Pro, and Demon WP. This should be sprayed in areas where the boxelder bugs frequent as well as the rest of the entire perimeter of the house. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.
