Demon Max Insecticide



Demon Max Insecticide

Demon Max EC is an excellent product created by Syngenta. Demon Max can be used both indoor and outdoors and contains cypermethrin which is a really great product for a quick knockdown of pests and it has a really good residual of about 2 to 3 months. Cypermethrin was the first synthetic pyrethroid introduced in the pest control industry about 20 years ago and is still very widely used today.

 

Indoors, you could use it in a pump sprayer and apply the product around your baseboards and cabinets. Outdoors, you can use it either with a hose end sprayer or a pump sprayer and use it on your turf and ornamentals to keep pests away as well as use it as a perimeter spray. It has a little bit of an odor to it though it usually dissipates in about a day or two. Demon Max is very effective on a wide range of insects: roaches, ants, ticks, fleas, mosquitoes among others.

 

Demon Max Insecticide is a dual action pre-treatment and treatment that both kills and repels over twenty pests. The residual last a longtime for increased protection against termites. Low water solubility contains the product from leaching out and thus a reduced environmental impact. Demon Max Insecticide provides protection against both Subterranean and Formosan species.

Beth Clinnard on Aug 14, 2017

I sprayed demonmax with a surfactant five days ago,just got an inch of rain. Will I need to re spray ? We have terrible mosquitoes in county where I live.
C in tex on Jun 24, 2017

What about an old wood house on blocks... How do u apply... Also it is currently infested with termites?
A shopper on Sep 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You will have to drill or access the row of blocks of each pier. If each pier has only a single block, you will have two holes to fill. Do this close to the ground level for obvious reasons. Use a cement paste. THEN, dig around each pier and pour a solution to soak the soil around the pier.
For existing termite damage, you have to expose ALL damage and soak it with Demon Max. Protect weather sensitive areas. Replace structurally sensitive components. Follow up with inspection and reapplication where necessary. When clear of termites, cover with appropriate sheething. BTW: Destroy all mud tubes the termites have made and used to aid their invasion! OPTION!! Get this all done professionally - depends on your ability and motivation. Bill
Will this product kill spotted lantern flies?
Todd R on Jul 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I've been using Demon Max to control pests (fleas, ticks, spiders, roaches, scorpions, etc) outside and inside for over a year. The main ingredient (Cypermethrin) is one of the most common ingredients found in almost all retail bug sprays in a can. The advantage is 1oz per gallon is much stronger than a can of bug spray. Your spotted lantern flies are not listed in the application guide, but flies are. I would be surprised if it didn't kill them, but how you get it on them is the key. Spraying this stuff in the air like a flying insect spray would not be good. Be sure to read the "PDF" product label and spec sheet that Solutions Pest & Lawn provides on the same page as the product details. Hope this helps.
Does it kill German cockroaches?
A shopper on Apr 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Cypermethrin is a widely use pesticide found in many products. The key is the percentage of cypermethrin used. 1/2oz per gallon is stronger than most common big brand Roach sprays. It doesn't care where the roach is from... it will kill without prejudice. Hope this helps!
Is it true that demon kills the eggs of roaches also?
Derek D on Oct 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Using Demon Max alone will not kill roach eggs. We recommend that you use an IGR (insect growth regulator) for that. Even an IGR does not kill roach eggs but just prevents the eggs from developing further. Gentrol is a recommended IGR.

https://www.solutionsstores.com/gentrol-igr-insect-growth-regulator
Does this chemical sterilize the roaches stop egg production?
A shopper on Sep 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No it doesn't. For this you would need to use an insect growth regulator such as Gentrol. Learn more about it and add it to your cart at the link below:

Can I mix demon max with martin's I.g. regulator to kill fleas?
Belle on Jun 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can add an IGR, but typically this is not done for exterior treatments.

For residential lawns, apply Demon Max at
the rate of 0.33-0.65 fl oz per 1,000 sq ft in a
volume of water sufficient for uniform
coverage such as 3-20 gal. Use the lower rate
to knock down pests and the higher rate
where faster knockdown or greater residual
is desired. The maximum application rate
on lawns and other turfgrass is 0.44 lb ai/A
(0.0101 lb ai/1,000 sq ft). Lawn should not be
longer than 3 inches at the time of application.
Base need for retreatment upon monitoring
for pest presence. Application in combination
with compatible surfactants may enhance
penetration. Arid climates generally require
the higher volume.

We've been using Demon Max for many years for our home and cabin. Cluster flies are totally under control. We've recommended the product to several people that use and like the product.

I recommend Demon Max. It was purchased to kill Carpenter Bees. It is not a "knock-down" but knew that when purchased the product. We have sprayed our decks & shed & it has proved to be effective. Will be ordering more for future uses.

good stuff
have boon using demon for over 20 yrs. luckily it has dropped in price but not effectiveness over the years. (i paid over $70 for my first pint.) at today's price it is way cheaper than paying $50 a month for an insecticide co. to come out once a month. i will continue to use it until someone screws around with the formula and dilutes the effective ness. good stuff!!
