Pest control Recomendations

I thought it would be a good idea to list what everyone uses for insect control. Yard, garden, or house. I started with a few I use. Been out in the yard all day and taking a break.

If anyone has something to add just post it and I will update. Along with the trade name and company that makes it, please add the chemical name. That way if another company makes a product with the same chemical it will be easy to cross reference.



Note: this is just recommendations. Always read the label before application


Talstar(bifenthrin)
Fire ants
spiders

Suspend(Deltamethrin)
Spiders

Bayer Vegetable & Garden Insect spray(Cyfluthrin)
Also sold as Tempo
Vegetable pests-I used it and it killed whatever was eating my cucumbers
dirt daubers, spiders, wasp

Malathion
Mosquitoes

Permethrin (2 oz per gallon and there will be none)
mosquitos

Acephate (Orthene) insecticide
Fire ants
Army and Cutworms
Grasshoppers

Sevin (Carbaryl)
Fleas and Ticks

Demon(cypermethrin)
House hold pests-roaches and stuff

Image(imazaquin)
Sedge control in turfgrass
Dollar weed, aligator weed

Permit(halosulfuron-methy)
Purple and Yellow Nutsedge

Roundup(glyphosate)
Most vegetation, my experience has trouble with briars

2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid(2,4-D)
Broad leaf plants, safe for most lawns, St Aug may be sensitive to it

(Metsulfuron Methyl)
Sold under many different names not all are labeled for use on turfgrasses
Manor and Blade are two labeled for turfgrass uses, Ally is labeled for crops
Controls -Bahaigrass

Foramsulfuron (Revolver)
Dallisgrass control in bermudagrass and Zoysia. Not sure if ok for centipede or St Aug

My buddy sprayed Malathion (sp) straight in his yard once and you couldn't find one living creature.
Step on the road mosquitos, step back in the yard, 3 Mile Island.

For insects in the yard (ticks, ants, etc.) I use a product called Hot Shot that I get at John Deere landscapes.

It's expensive but it works.

For bugs around the house Ortho Home Defense Max

Changed the way I listed them. I'll just list the chemical name and what it controls. See how that works.

re: Pest control Recomendations
The only bug I try to kill is ants. I quit spraying around the house a few years ago. After a year, the lizards came back. No problem with any spiders or any other bugs around the house. Oh, I live in the sticks with woods and fields all around me and one would think I would have all kinds of shite hanging around the house, but I don't. It was a bitch of a year with all the spiders and webs, but like I said, after a year, no problems. I do have a shite load of lizards though.

How do you use Malathion to control mosquitos.
Only thing I really use regularly is Amdro, fire ant colony one day, mound of lifeless dirt the next.

Sevin (Carbaryl)
I sprinkle some in my yard and around my dog's pen to kill fleas, but it kills pretty much everything. We use it in the garden too.



My aunt lives next to me and she has an ant killing infatuation, so she walks around the property once a week with the Ortho ant killer killing ants, so I don't have to deal with them.

From Wiki

quote:

Scorpions are not without their own enemies. Many scorpions eat other kinds of scorpions and some are cannibalistic. Centipedes are a major enemy of scorpions, and some birds and mammals (shrews and monkeys, for example) have learned to avoid the sting and love eating scorpions.

interesting. I have webs in my garage, in the corners and all. Might have to give this a try. For some reason, the stuff I use just has never worked in the garage.

re: Pest control Recomendations
As someone who has had organophosphate poisoning previously I thought I would contribute a little information/warning on all of these useful chemicals. I still use the chemicals if needed but I am careful to follow all directions.

Organophosphates and carbamate insecticides can cause human and animal toxicities. Toxicity generally results from accidental or intentional ingestion of or exposure to, agricultural pesticides. Other potential causes of organophosphate or carbamate toxicity include ingestion of contaminated fruit, flour, or cooking oil, and wearing contaminated clothing.

Specific agents linked to human poisoning include both carbamate (methomyl and aldicarb) and organophosphate (parathion, fenthion, malathion, diazinon, and dursban) insecticides. Chlorpyrifos, the organophosphate agent of dursban, is found in some popular household roach and ant sprays, including Raid® and Black Flag®.

These agents are well absorbed through the skin, lungs, and gastrointestinal tract.
For most agents, oral or respiratory exposures generally result in signs or symptoms within three hours, while symptoms of toxicity from dermal absorption may be delayed up to 12 hours. Lipophilic agents such as dichlofenthion, fenthion, and malathion are associated with delayed onset of symptoms (up to five days) and prolonged illness (greater than 30 days), which may be related to rapid adipose fat uptake and delayed redistribution from the fat stores.

•Acute toxicity from organophosphorus agents presents with manifestations of cholinergic excess. The dominant clinical features of acute cholinergic toxicity include bradycardia, miosis, lacrimation, salivation, bronchorrhea, bronchospasm, urination, emesis, and diarrhea.

•Ten to 40 percent of organophosphorus poisoned patients develop a distinct neurologic disorder 24 to 96 hours after exposure. This disorder consists of characteristic neurological findings including neck flexion weakness, decreased deep tendon reflexes, cranial nerve abnormalities, proximal muscle weakness, and respiratory insufficiency.

In cases of topical exposure with potential dermal absorption, aggressive decontamination with complete removal of the patient's clothes and vigorous irrigation of the affected areas should be performed. The patient's clothes and belongings should be discarded since they absorb organophosphorus agents, and reexposure may occur even after washing. Health care workers must take precautions to avoid accidental exposure, including providing treatment in a well-ventilated area.

General rules:
Always follow the safety directions on the container.
Wear chemical resistant gloves, long pants, long sleeves, and use a mask if indicated.
Mix chemicals outdoors in containers designated for pesticide/herbicide use only.
Don’t reuse containers for other purposes after exposure to the insecticide/herbicide.
Always wash hands well after use with lots of water.


Also, air dirft and runoff can cause significant damage to waterway ecosystems and benificial insect populations (especially bees) if you are not careful. Please be mindful of where your chemicals are ending up.
