Acephate Pro PCO (a.i. : Acephate 96%) - An insecticide concentrate in water soluble powder form. Same as Orthene PCO , the most requested product among our customers who own or operate restaurants. This product is a favorite of professionals because it is labeled for use in restaurants (and other commercial food areas) and for its powerful action against German Roach populations that are resistant to synthetic pyrethroid insecticides. It also is popular for its ability to stick to stainless steel (where other pesticides often fail) in commercial kitchens. Kills roaches, ants, wasps and other household insects. Should not be used on carpet or upholstery.  Acephate Pro, Orthene PCO

Baygon 70 WP - (a.i. Baygon 70.0%) Baygon WP is no longer available; use Demon WP, Cynoff WP (Cypermethrin products) or Suspend SC, instead.  This Carbamate class of insecticide is a favorite with our customers for eliminating centipede and millipede populations around their homes. Baygon WP gives excellent control of such insects as ants, cockroaches, clover mites, crickets, earwigs, outdoor fleas, flies (exterior structural surfaces), millipedes, mosquitoes (exterior structural surfaces), scorpions, silverfish, sow bugs, spiders, ticks, water bugs, punkies and sand flies.

Use 1/2 or 1 ounce per gallon.
Similar to Demon EC.

Cynoff EC

Cynoff WP (a.i. Cypermethrin 40.00%): Odorless wettable powder concentrate which gives an average 90 day residual. A one pound jar will make up to 48 gallons of insecticide spray.  The Number One Choice of pest control operators, apartment managers and others for quarterly and yearly pest control applications.   Controls same pests as Cynoff EC.  Go to Cypermethrin information page for more details.
Cynoff Wettable Powder

DeltaGard G (a.i. Deltamethrin): Granular insecticide which utilizes a unique, water soluble carrier. Its irregularly shaped granules dissolve completely (leaving no particles that might be picked up by birds and other non-target species!), delivering the maximum dose of DeltaGard to the target insects. Packaged in convenient 20 lb. bags which, at the treatment rate of just 2 lb. per thousand square feet, will treat over10,000 square feet. This is considerably less than traditional granules, and means you carry a lot less bulk while still getting the job done properly. Normal residual is up to 4 weeks, depending on environmental conditions and targeted pests.

Demon EC (a.i.: Cypermethrin   25.3%): Low odor liquid concentrate which leaves no visible residue. Gives quick "Knock-Down" for German roaches and is the product of choice for drenching fire ant mounds.

Drax Gel 

Ficam D (a.i. - Bendiocarb  1%):  Ficam D is no longer available; use Delta Dust or Drione Dust instead.  Professional insecticide dust that is applied to cracks, crevices and voids where insects might hide or enter buildings.  Kills ants, carpenter ants, crickets, roaches, spiders, scorpions, silverfish, firebrats, ticks, fleas, wasps, bees, sow bugs, pill bugs, earwigs, millipedes, ground beetles, centipedes and fire ants.  Also used in control and elimination of pantry pests such as Grain Beetles (Rusty, Merchant and Sawtoothed), Flour Beetles (Red and Confused), Drugstore Beetles, Rice Weevils, Lesser Grain Borers, Spider Beetles and Tobacco Moths.  We have found this dust to be one of the most effective on the market for controlling spiders, scorpions and other household pests.

Ficam Plus (a.i. Bendiocarb 29.45%, pyrethrins 3.06%, Piperonyl Butoxide 7.66%):  Ficam Plus is no longer available; use Demon WP, Suspend SC or Talstar Concentrate insecticide instead.  Same basic product as FicamW, featuring the addition of pyrethrins and Piperonyl Butoxide for a quick knock-down.  Tip: For German Roach populations that are immune or resistant to pesticides, combine Ficam Plus with Acephate for roach elimination.

Flea Fix (a.i. Nylar) Same as Archer: Indoor and outdoor IGR which inhibits the life cycle of fleas and roaches.  Can be used alone (for long term prevention of a flea or roach infestation) or in conjunction with a pesticide. 
One ounce of Flea Fix will treat up to 1500 sq. ft.. when treating for fleas.  For control of severe roach populations, two ounces Flea Fix is suggested per gallon of water.   Tip: Field studies have shown that using Flea Fix increases the appetite of roaches - thus driving them to "pig-out" on superior roach baits such as Maxforce Gel.  Use Flea Fix three times each year to prevent flea and roach infestations.

Tip: combine with Gourmet Ant Bait for speedy results.
FluorGuard Ant Bait
