Will BUGGSLAYER stain my vinyl siding?

BUGGSLAYER will not stain your siding. It is a water-based, odorless, non-staining formula that is also EPA-registered for use on siding.

Can I use a dial type hose end sprayer or pressure washer to apply BUGGSLAYER?

BUGGSLAYER is not formulated for use in pressure washers or dial type hose end sprayer systems.

For BUGGSLAYER Outdoor Concentrate, we recommend a portable pump sprayer which gives a controlled spray that will provide excellent coverage without causing run-off.

If you can’t reach your eaves with the wand or you don’t have a pump type sprayer, use our hose-end BUGGSLAYER insecticide Ready-to-Spray product. It has a two way action (fan-spray or 25-foot jet stream) and gives the proper mix ratio.

I applied BUGGSLAYER yesterday and today there are bugs crawling where I sprayed. Why?

The bugs you sprayed yesterday are most certainly dead. The insects you see today are new ones that either walked or flew in, and when they come in contact with areas you’ve sprayed, they will die within a few hours. BUGGSLAYER is a contact killer and insects that enter the treated area will die within a few hours.

Can BUGGSLAYER be used around pets and children?

After it dries, you can let children and pets enter the treated area.
