What insecticide should I use?

Which insecticide should I use?

There are lots of insecticides on the market that will kill fleas. There are important things to take into consideration when choosing an insecticide:

* How toxic is it to fleas?

* How toxic is it to mammals? (that's us and our pets)

* How toxic is it to the environment?

It is best to get an insecticide that is tightly targeted to the insects that you are trying to eliminate. The best out now, like Conquer are just as deadly to fleas as the old DursbanTM and Diazanon, but not nearly as toxic to mammals AND they break down within hours or days and do not stay in our environments for months or years like the old insecticides used to.

I can't emphasize how important this is. If we kill ourselves or our pets off, just to get rid of the fleas, then we are not being wise.

Conquer is a new Residual Insecticide Concentrate with the active ingredient of Esfenvalerate. It controls numerous pests in and around structures. It is recommended for Commercial and Industrial use. It is great for use in and around the home and food and non-food areas of: Schools, Office Buildings, Kennels, Food Processing Plants. It is specifically for use on Lawns to Kill Fleas AND Ticks.

  • Kills fleas
  • Kills ticks including the deer ticks that carry and transmit Lyme Disease
  • One 16 ounce bottle treats 48,000 square feet of yard
  • Use 1 ounce per 3,000 square feet
  • Easy to use, just add "Archer" (the best Insect Growth Regulator) for COMPLETE outdoor control of fleas!
