Free Shipping on All Orders

Target Pests

Bifen XTS controls fleas ticks mosquitoes spiders termites ants cockroaches and many other insects. Please refer to the Bifen XTS Label for a full list of insects controlled.

For Use In

Bifen XTS can be used in lawns in and around structures to prevent and control termite infestations slabs foundations basements crawl spaces ornamentals and trees ant and fire ant mounds.


To use Bifen XTS you will need a pump sprayer. Fill your sprayer with the desired amount of water and measure the proper amount of Bifen XTS for your particular application into your sprayer. 

When applying Bifen XTS please make sure to be safe by referring to the Bifen XTS MSDS and label. Proper protective equipment should be used at all times because Bifen XTS is oil based and can irritate the skin. Bifenthrin works by interrupting the insects nervous system which stops them from feeding or doing anything. As a result it is necessary for the insects to come in contact with the bifenthrin technical. You can ensure that this happens by applying Bifen XTS to areas where insects hide.

Outdoors: Apply the product to exterior of buildings making sure to concentrate on eaves, weep holes, windows, plumbing, electrical and doors. Those are typical entry points for insects and you want to make sure that as they enter the structure they cross over the product and receive a lethal dose.

Indoors: Apply Bifen XTS to cracks and crevices including under appliances, around plumbing, around doors and windows, access holes, etc.

Termites: Bifen XTS can be used to treat for termites as a pre-treat or trench treatment. Please refer to the label and our termite treatment section for a full guide on application.

Notes: Bifen XTS is oil based and as a result can damage plants when hot or stain some vinyl siding. Make sure to test applications on a small area before applying to a large area when you are unsure. Bifen XTS also has a strong odor to it which will be noticeable while spraying. It is best to wear a respirator when applying if you are suseptible to fumes. The odor will dissapate in 2-6 hours.

Mixing for hose sprayer?
Randy on Aug 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm not an expert, but I don't think that would be a good idea - unless you had a sprayer that was very accurate (and I don't think those exist). It only takes 1 or 2 ounces per gallon of water...this stuff is super strong. I use a standard pump sprayer for this stuff. Works very well, and I seem to need to re-apply every 2-3 months.

Love it...
i had an infestation (front and back yard) of spider mites... I used several other brands claiming to control mites and miticide specific solutions... None of them worked .. However, after using this Bifen XTS , I noticed an immediate annihilation of those boogers.. Not to mention , how nicely it controlled the other insects as well... I stocked up on about 5 of these.. I anticipate the government placing restrictions on this stuff due to the fact it actually works..

Great product for killing roaches and spiders.
I use this product primarily for Mosquitos, but find it does a fine job of killing roaches and beetles along with spiders. I apply it with a sprayer set to fine mist taped to an electric blower for max coverage--especially under leaves and in Ivy/ground cover. Best to apply in the evening on a calm wind day. Sun seems to deteriorate effectiveness. Better to purchase here than on Amazon (got some nice freebies with my order).JL

Very Happy with Bifen Shipment
Was hesitant at first on ordering a Liquid Product. I was very happy with the shipment, lots of stuffing to keep product secure and both caps of product were taped so that they would not open in shipment. Very Satisfied, plus saved $13+ on a one item shipment.

Best killer of mosquitoes
When I read some of the reviews about how potent this product was,I was skeptical, but I thought what if it is this good. We had a real problem with mosquitoes, to the point that my wife dreaded having to take the dog out or any other outside excursions. One treatment of the bifen XTS seems to have done the trick. After several weeks I have received a couple of bites but nothing like before. One more treatment - I can hardly wait to experience the result. Like the old adage - "Try it, you'll like it".

Bifen xts works great
I have to give bifen xts a 5 star review. Since I have sprayed outside around the house I have not seen one bug. I sprayed over a month ago and still bug free. It is very economical and mixing according to directions give you a lot of gallons. You can't go wrong buying bifen xts for your insect control.
