Can this be sprayed on edges of fish pond?
A shopper on Oct 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This pesticide is extremely toxic to fish and aquatic invertebrates. Do not apply directly to water, to areas
where surface water is present. Drift and run-off from
treated areas may be hazardous to aquatic organisms in neighboring areas. Do not contaminate water when
disposing of equipment washwaters. Care should be used when spraying to avoid fish ponds.

Honestly, does it kill & eliminate German Roaches & for how long?
Kim P on Jan 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It helps... I had best results using it in combination with a gel bait (advion) to kill them first and applying it as more of a barrier about once a month. I live in a somewhat wooded neighborhood in central NC so I don’t think completely getting rid of them is realistic but it’s a lot better. For a while I’d see a roach as frequently as once or twice per week, now it once every few months, usually in the fall when it starts to get cold. Good luck.

Karen C on Oct 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Bifen XTS is a higher concentration of Bifenthrin and is a petroleum based product, they are both mixed with water.

11Ticks (including ticks that may transmit Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever): Make
application to the entire area where contact with ticks may occur. Do not make spot treatments. When
applying to areas with heavy leaf litter or dense ground cover use higher spray volumes. To attain and/or
sustain control in times of high pest pressure, retreatments may be necessary; retreat only if signs of
continued or renewed tick activity are present. Repeat treatments must not be made more often than once
per 7 days. Deer ticks (ixodes sp.) have a four-stage life cycle spanning 2 years. Treat in late fall and/or
early spring to both larval and nymphal stages present in leaf litter and the soil, and adults living in the

household pests
Purchased Bifen IT when I was tired of paying $70 a quarter for pest company to spray. Easy to use and so far results are good. I noticed some dead pests in the garage after a few days of spraying. This was my first purchase from Solutions and so far I am satisfied.

amazing results
Used Bifen on Ants in yard and saw immediate results. It was very easy to use (just add to water). I spot treated the ant mounds and by the next morning there was zero activity at the mound and it did not appear that the mound simply moved since there were no signs of new mounds. I highly recommend Bifen. Solutions Self-Chem provided a great shopping experience, had the best price and free shipping. Highly recommend Solutions Self-Chem
