Comparing Insecticides: Which Should You Use?
No matter the time of year, insects can really bug homeowners. Whether it is ants and cockroaches crawling their way around your kitchen or mosquitoes and ticks taking a bite out of your gardening time, these pests need to be controlled. Ragan & Massey offers three different brands of insecticide so you have protection against all types of insects and mites.
Compare-N-Save Indoor/Outdoor Insecticide
From ants and aphids to spiders, ticks and wasps, Compare-N-Save Indoor/Outdoor Insecticide kills pests inside and outside your home. This concentrated insecticide can be applied to ornamental gardens, lawns, trees, shrubs, foliage plants, nonbearing fruit and nut trees, flowers and on firewood and in cracks and crevices. Indoors, Compare-N-Save Indoor/Outdoor Insecticide can be sprayed in kitchens, along floorboards, windowsills and across door openings. (Just make sure to cover all food, food processing surfaces and utensils.) It will also keep working long after the spray has dried.
Compare-N-Save Indoor/Outdoor Insecticide is made with 7.9% bifenthrin. It is toxic to fish and aquatic invertebrates so don’t let it run off into storm drains, drainage ditches, gutters or surface waters. Let it dry completely before allowing pets back in the area. See the complete label for specific use rates and detailed instructions.
Farm General Indoor/Outdoor Insect Concentrate
Farm General Indoor/Outdoor Insect Concentrate is also made with 7.9% bifenthrin. It controls insects and pests where they hide, like baseboards, corners, storage areas, closets and under appliances. It protects your home from fire ants, flies, ticks, wasps, and a whole host of other creepy crawlies.
Farm General Indoor/Outdoor Insect Concentrate can be used around food/feed handling when mixed and used as directed. For a full list of targeted species and spraying instructions, please see the Complete Label. Shake well before using and be sure this insecticide won’t make contact with food, people or pets, both indirectly and through drift. Reapply as needed but not more than once a week.
Farmworks Indoor/Outdoor Insect Concentrate
Farmworks Indoor/Outdoor Insect Concentrate is made exclusively for our friends at Tractor Supply Co. One half-gallon jug produces 64 gallons of spray to eliminate insects and mites both indoors and out. Indoor/Outdoor Insect Concentrate formulation, made of 7.9% bifenthrin, mixes readily with water and other aqueous carriers. Use Indoor/Outdoor Insect Concentrate as a tank mix with other pesticides, including insect growth regulators, to spray around landscapes, in and around buildings and on lawns. See the complete label for mixing rates. It can also be applied wherever insects live and hide. This is a residual control product so it keeps working long after the solution has dried.
No matter which indoor/outdoor insecticide you choose, you can be sure it will take care of any insect that’s bugging you and your family.
