Spectracide Triazicide is an insecticide solution used to kill and repel many of outdoor pests. The solution can be used to kill over 260 listed insects, so this is a really universal solution. However, we can immediately say that it won’t work for every pest you can find in your backyard. For example, many users have reported the solution to be ineffective for an ant problem as it will work only on specific species of ants. For all a list of the insects the Spectracide Triazicide solution works on, read the product label. Other than that, this is a really effective insecticide, especially for mosquito and other insect control.
Spectracide Triazicide comes in a 32 oz (0.95 l) bottle and costs approx. 8 dollars. The solution is concentrated and should be diluted with water for usage. For mosquito control, this insecticide provides a long lasting protection and after a successful misting session you should have a mosquito-free backyard. The misting can be repeated after few weeks to keep the mosquitoes away. As mentioned this insecticide is made to kill all sorts of pests that live outdoors, so it can primarily be used on the lawn. The active ingredient in Spectracide Triazicide insect killer is Gamma-Cyhalothrin chemical in 0.08% concentrations. Previously the solution contained Gamma-Cyhalothrin chemical in 0.25% concentration, which kills insects on contact, but due to safety, they have reduced the amount of active ingredient in the solution. However, the insecticide still works great for mosquito control applications. The effect of spraying could last for 4 and more weeks, but it depends on the type of pests you are trying to eliminate.
The fogging solution is safe to use on vegetation such as plants, trees, vegetables, fruits, flowers and also does not leave stains on most materials, although when misting around the house where there are specific surface materials, make sure to test the solution on a small part of the material to ensure that it does not leave any stains. The insecticide comes with clear usage instructions. Also, the company offers to refund money if the solution is ineffective for pest control, which is a nice gesture and shows that Spectracide stands by the quality of their products.
