Sylo Insecticide, manufactured by Solutions Pest & Lawn, is an oil-based concentrate that provides fast killing of pests like bees, ants, carpenter bees, and others as well as creating a residual barrier that continues killing and repelling insects for up to 90 days. Sylo Insecticide is very comparable to Demon Max (Demon EC).

This emulsifiable concentrate can be applied using different types of sprayers to ensure all areas around building structures can be treated. As a synthetic pyrethroid it works by interfering with the labeled pests nervous system causing eventual death through the active ingredient cypermethrin 25.4%. Once dried, this product functions as a repellent against wasps and other labeled pests.

Sylo Insecticide can be used to reach and control targeted pests like hornets harboring in large areas, like lawns, or in small areas, such as voids, cracks, and crevices around structures. It is strong enough to take down a target pest within 20 minutes and safe enough to use around residential and recreational areas. With a 100 % guarantee, Sylo Insecticide is an exceptional product to have in an arsenal of weapons against insects outdoors.

Tools Needed

To use Sylo Insecticide, you will need to mix the product with water before application. For most residential applications, we recommend you apply the solution with a handheld pump sprayer, but you may also use a hose-end sprayer, a backpack sprayer, or a spray rig, depending on the size of the treatment area.

How to Use

Spraying Sylo Insecticide

  • Step 1: Determine how much Sylo Insecticide you need by first calculating the square footage of the area you wish to treat. To do this, measure (in feet) the area length and width, then multiply the two values (length x width = square footage). Check the product label for the application rate you will need to treat your targeted pests, and use the measuring cup to portion out the right amount of product. Sylo Insecticide can be applied at a rate of 0.52 to 5.1 fl. oz. of product into 1 gallon of water to apply evenly over 1,000 sq. ft. of treatment area. The exact amount you will use will depend on the pest you are treating and the severity of the infestation.
  • Step 2: Fill your sprayer tank with half the required amount of water, then use the bottles tip-n-pour feature to measure the correct amount of product you will need. Add it in, and agitate the mixture until the product is fully dispersed. Then add the remaining amount of water. Close and shake once more to ensure an even distribution of product. Once the solution is fully mixed, you can add additional products like marking dyes or surfactants.
  • Step 3: Once your solution is mixed, you can apply it as a broadcast spray, as a barrier spray, and in cracks and crevices. Outdoors, you can apply this product over lawns, ground cover, shrubs, flowers, non-bearing fruit and nut trees, building siding, and any cracks and crevices that lead into the structure. For broadcast spraying, surface spraying, or barrier spraying, use a fan nozzle spray setting to get uniform coverage. For crack and crevice spraying, use a pin-stream nozzle setting for precise application.

Where to Use

Sylo Insecticide can be used on lawns, flower beds, and trees around homes, businesses and recreational areas. Sylo is a great product to use to create an insecticidal barrier and can be sprayed around eaves, doorways, windows, and areas where utilities enter the structure.

When to Use

Sylo Insecticide can be used as part of a preventative treatment plan as it creates a residual barrier that lasts for up to 90 days. It can also be used as part of a control plan to eliminate pests quickly.

Safety Information

Sylo Insecticide is safe to use around people and pets when applied according to the product label instructions. Always wear the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) when mixing or applying this product.

Do not allow people or pets into treatment areas until the product has dried completely.

Special Considerations

Sylo Insecticide may also be turned into a foam with the correct foaming agent. This can be used to treat wall voids to control or prevent termite, ant, wasp and bee infestations or other arthropods harboring under slabs.

No more bugs
I sprayed my walls and ceiling of my back porch. After 9 months, there is not one wasp of any sort, nor spiders, nor any other insect that has landed or built a nest! Excellent product!
Works as advertised
Mixed 1/2 oz. per gallon of water. Sprayed along walls inside of equipment shed. The next day dead ladybugs and spiders all over floor.

Time will tell
It has been approx 2 weeks since I applied the product and I am pleased to report zero insects. There is a noticeable odor until the product dries. We live in an old farm house (1/2 dirt floor basement) and this is the time of year we tend to see centipedes. Our newer detached garage "was" a fav for crickets. I purchased the product for yellow jacket bees nesting under the siding but they have left for the winter and I'll be attacking them in the spring. Fingers crossed.

It works!
We can finally walk out our doors and not be buzzed by paper wasps! We bought a property from an elderly person who could no longer care for the outside of the home. Wasps & mud daubers were thick under the soffits and midges were all over the yard & in bushes. Sylo worked beautifully at knocking back the insects around the house. It also knocked back the ticks in the yard.

I'm going to have to spray some areas under the soffits where there are dips in the ground under them again because I think I didn't get them as well because I'm too short to have reached them well.

It's so nice to feel safe working around the house & sitting on the deck to relax.

IT WORKS
Sylo works to kill the wasps. Be sure to spray it in the nest holes at or after sundown, as the wasps have returned to the nest then. Spraying the yard surface is minimally effective.
