Demon WP is a crack and crevice and or spot treatment for residual and contact control of ants, carpenter ants, cockroaches, crickets, spiders, German cockroaches, scorpions, occasional invaders such as firebrats, silverfish, centipedes, millipedes and certain other insects.
This odorless wettable powder is the most popular insect repellent used in general household insect and pest control. Demon WP insecticide gives three to four months of insect control and virtually insect free houses. Professional pest control operators use Demon WP in their quarterly and annual pest control accounts, in homes and businesses. Available in pre-measured water soluble packets and 1 LB bulk jars.
A general surface, crack and crevice and/or spot treatment
for residual and contact control of ants, carpenter ants,
cockroaches, crickets, spiders and other insect pests.
For use by commercial applicators in, on and around buildings
and structures for the control of listed pests, including on lawns,
ornamental trees and shrubs around residential, institutional,
public, commercial, agricultural and industrial buildings; and
parks, recreational areas and athletic fields.
Controls and Kills a variety of insects including ants, spiders, scorpions, roaches, and occasional invaders
INDOOR SURFACES USE
Demon WP may be used as a crack and crevice and/or spot treatment for indoor surfaces use.
Cockroaches, Spiders, Crickets, Scorpions, Silverfish, Ticks, and Firebrats
Carpenter Ant Control
Apply as a coarse, low pressure treatment to areas where these pests hide, such as baseboards,
corners, storage areas, closets, around water pipes, doors and windows, attics and eaves, cabinets,
furniture, sinks, furnaces, stoves, behind and under refrigerators, the underside of shelves, drawers,
and similar areas. Pay particular attention to cracks and crevices. Also see Outdoor Surfaces Use.
Apply to any trails, around doors and windows, and similar areas where ants (including carpenter
ants) may be found. Where ants are trailing inside, apply as a residual surface treatment to active
areas such as baseboards, corners, around pipes, in and behind cabinets, behind and under refrigerators,
sinks, furnaces and stoves, cracks and crevices. When combining baits and residual surface insecticides,
apply surface insecticides in cracks and crevices, along baseboards, and infested surfaces and
outside barrier treatments. Apply perimeter barrier treatments and treat nest to prevent infestation
as described in Outdoor Surfaces Use.
Assassin Bugs, Boxelder Bugs, Sowbugs, Pillbugs, Millipedes, Elm Leaf Beetle,
Apply around doors and windows and similar areas where these, or similar perimeter pests, may be
found or where they may enter premises. Apply to baseboards, storage areas, and other locations.
Apply perimeter barrier treatments to prevent infestation as described in Outdoor Surfaces Use.
OUTDOOR SURFACES USE
Apply with either hand-held or power application equipment as a residual spray to surfaces of buildings,
porches, screens, window frames, eaves, patios, lawns, refuse dumps, garages and other similar
areas where these pests are found. Also, may be used as a spot treatment in applications to lawns in
landscaped areas in and around residential, commercial, institutional and industrial buildings, and
similar areas where these insect pests are active.
Apply as a coarse wet spray treatment, but avoid runoff around doors, door frames, windows and
similar areas where these ants enter premises or hide.
Fire Ants (Mounds)
For individual fire ant mounds, apply Demon WP as a drench. Gently sprinkle a total of one gallon
over the surface of mounds up to 12 inches in diameter. Use 2 gallons for larger mounds. Thoroughly
wet mound and surrounding area. Treat new mounds as they appear. Pressurized sprays may disturb
the ants and cause migration. If possible, applications should be made on warm days after recent rainfall.
All colonies in the vicinity should be treated, including those that have not yet constructed a
Bees, Flies, Mosquitoes, and Wasps
Apply directly to walls, window screens, and other exterior resting areas as a residual surface treatment.
Use caution when treating nests of stinging insects as Demon WP does not provide instant
knockdown. Protective equipment for the applicator may be required. For best results, treat bee, wasp
and hornet nests late in the day when most insects will be present. Allow 2-3 days for colony to die.
For mosquito control, apply as a general structural perimeter spray to landscape plantings, turf, and
building foundations to control mosquitoes. Yards or other frequented areas enclosed by landscaping
can benefit from the creation of a mosquito barrier to reduce invading mosquitoes by the treatment
of perimeter vegetation. For best results, apply Demon WP at recommended rates in 2-5 gallons of
water per 1,000 sq. ft. Higher volumes applied result in better coverage and, as a rule, will improve
control. Application to vegetation away from structures may require additional applicator certification,
e.g. in turf or ornamental categories. Consult your state regulatory agency for requirements. Not
for use in wide area mosquito abatement programs.
Fleas and Ticks
To control nuisance fleas and ticks (e.g. dog ticks) apply to yards, runs, and other outside areas where
pets may frequent. For tick control, apply using a coarse fan spray to vegetation brush, branches, rock
walls, and other areas near habitation where ticks may harbor or frequent. Treat entire area rather
than making spot treatments, and retreat as necessary to maintain control. Do not apply to pasture
or cropland, and do not allow animals and people access to treated areas until the deposit has dried.
Applications can begin in the spring and can continue until frost to control both larvae and adult ticks.
Make exterior treatments in late summer or early fall before flies are observed alighting on surfaces.
Apply thoroughly on siding, under eaves, and around windows and doors, paying particular attention
to south-facing surfaces. Apply just enough dilution to adequately cover the area without excessive
dripping or runoff. Heavy precipitation prior to frost may require re-treatments to maintain protection.
Treat and remove accumulations of lumber, firewood and other materials that serve as harborage
sites. Apply as a coarse spray treatment to the point of drip.
Apply as a spot treatment when pests first appear (do not apply as a broadcast spray). Delay watering
or mowing the treated area for 12-24 hours after treatment. Use 1-5 gallons of solution per 800-1,600
sq. ft. when making application. Retreat when needed but not more than every two weeks.
OUTDOOR PERIMETER BARRIER TREATMENT AROUND STRUCTURES
Applying a continual band of insecticide around a building foundation and around windows, doors,
service line entrances, eaves, vents, and other areas can greatly reduce the potential for entry by
crawling pests. To facilitate application, remove debris and leaf litter from next to the foundation,
trim vegetation and branches that touch the foundation, and move or rake back rocks, deep mulch,
or other potential pest harborage next to the foundation. To help prevent infestation of buildings,
apply as a band to soil and vegetation 6-10 ft. wide around and adjacent to the building. Also, treat
the building foundation to a height of 2-3 ft. where pests are active and may find entrance. Apply as
a coarse spray treatment to thoroughly and uniformly wet the band area, using 1-5 gallons of treatment
solution applied to 800-1,600 sq. ft.
Amount of concentrate is dependent upon pest species (see pest table and comments), infestation
levels, and service interval desired.
