Granular Insecticides

Many people stop with just indoor control to try and eliminate the insects that have invaded the home. Although indoor treatment is an essential part of complete insect control, the most crucial part of pest control may be prevention or exclusion. One of the most effective preventative measures in insect control is to set a barrier outdoors or employ a broadcast treatment in the lawn or yard. With liquid concentrates or dusts, this is virtually impossible because it requires a large amount of products and might be one of the most tedious tasks of insect control. For large broadcast treatments and defensive barrier treatments, there is a better solution than liquids or dusts. Use granular insecticides to spread over the lawn or simply apply bands of granules around the perimeter of the structure to protect you and your home from pesky outdoor pests.

Keep in mind that granular insecticides can be used directly on ornamental plants. However, they are not to be used in vegetable gardens or around fruit trees. Also, although granular baits may used indoors in areas that are less vulnerable to contact, contact kill granular insecticides are meant for outdoor use. Read all product labels thoroughly before applying any granular insecticides.

Granular Insecticide Formulation

Granular insecticides are the chemical active ingredient that is mixed with a porous material. Granules are dry, hard particles that are larger than a dust insecticide but works in a similar way. Moreover, the percentage of the active ingredient that is used in a granular insecticide formulation is much higher than the percentage used in a dust formulation. Many homeowners will use granular insecticides for soil treatment, lawn treatment, large broadcast treatment, and etc. Furthermore, granules are not able to cling to surfaces or plants, so they can be applied over soil and ornamental plant materials.

Why Use Granular Insecticides?

Granular insecticides are specially designed and made to release the chemical upon contact. Made in a formulation that is safe, granules can be spread over the entire lawn, can be used as a barrier treatment, and used as spot treatment in concentrated areas. Granules are the primary outdoor insecticide that many professional pest control management companies and homeowners are using for general outdoor pest control. There is a granule formulation that is specially made for most of the common outdoor lawn pests, like chinch bugs and grubs. Moreover, there are also specially formulated bait granules that are designed to target some of the most common house pests like ants, cockroaches, silverfish, and etc. Finally, granules are easy to use without any pre-mixing or setup. There are no required preliminary steps that are involved in used granules and simply, use the formulation as is.

How to Use Effectively Use Granular Insecticides

  • Broadcast Treatment: Granular insecticides that are used as a broadcast treatment can be applied using a hand-held spreader. Generally, granular insecticides are contact kill, instant knock down insecticides that kill such insects as cockroaches, ants, lawn grubs and bugs, and etc. upon contact. Use granular insecticides in around the yard or directly on concentrated areas of infestation.
  • Barrier Treatment: In the same way as the broadcast treatment, granules can be used to make barriers around the structure to keep invading pests out of the house. Apply the granular insecticide in bands of 4 feet around the perimeter of the structure.
  • Granular Baits: Unlike contact kill granular insecticides, granule baits have a slight delay kill effect and work to target social insects like ants and cockroaches. Spot treat with the granular baits directly on the mound or near the harborage areas.

A.   There are several different products for Dust Mite control. Look into Steri-fab, which is a spray that does not have a residual but is great for an initial treatment or one time treatment. Also, Bedlam Bed Bug Spray has dust mites on the product label that is a great product as well and has a short residual of about 1 week to 2 weeks.

Q. What product to get for DrywoodTermite and will you shipped to Hong Kong
My mother has an apartment (on the 9th floor) in Hong Kong and she found termites. I believe they are drywood termites and she is looking for a spray to prevent the termites from developing again. I wonder if you can recommend a strong product and easy to apply - just spraying at the spot will be great. I also wonder if you shipped directly to Hong Kong. Thanks for your help.
A.   Premise Foam seems like the product you are looking for! However, we are unable to ship the product to Hong Kong due to strict regulations on international shipping.
