Solutions Stores carries some of the best wettable powder insecticide concentrates on the market. These products are effective and are a great alternative to consider for your pest control program. Wettable powders are a specialized formulation of insecticide where the active ingredient has been ground into powder form to be mixed well with water and then sprayed onto surfaces and into cracks crevices and voids. Unlike soluble powders, which dissolve when mixed with water, wettable powders do not. This is good when it comes to having a long-lasting residual effect compared to other insecticides and sprays which fade away much faster.

Wettable powders make a great choice, especially when applying to porous surfaces like concrete and unfinished wood where water seeps into the material. Once the water has been dried out and evaporated, the powder remains onto the surface of wherever it is applied, ready and waiting to be picked up by offending pests and insects.

Advantages of Using Wettable Products

Using WP products is a smart choice for those who do not wish to regularly apply insecticides to control various problematic pests. Wettable powder products can get to those hard to reach cracks and crevices that normal insecticide sprays can access but with the added benefit of remaining there long after the water has evaporated. This allows the WP product's active ingredient to remain where it has been spray to provide better knockdown insects which are unfortunate enough to come into contact with the product.When dealing with heavy infestations of spiders, cockroaches, millipedes and other similar insects, this is ideal.

WP formulations typically give about a 90 day (or better) residual effect. Your typical liquid or emulsifiable concentrated products give between 28 to 31 days residual. This longer residual effect time means that weekly or monthly spraying of your home is no longer necessary. This product will continue doing it’s job long after that first spraying.

Things to Consider when Using Wettable Powders  

Please use wettable powders according to the instruction label.  Wettable powders can clog spray equipment easily and frequently if they are not agitated properly, or the equipment does not have the proper filters to handle wettable powders. Always shake really well when using wettable powders and begin application immediately after powder has been mixed with water.  Wettable powder solutions will need tobe agitated or shaken frequently to remain uniformly mixed. Wettable powder formulations can leave a visible and unsightly residue on darker surfaces. Other than these minor disadvantages, wettable powders are a great choice if you want long-lasting control without frequently needing to conduct repeated applications.
