Phantom's "Secondary Kill" Action

Phantom has the ability to kill pests that have not come in contact with the treated area. This mode of action is called "secondary kill", one insect exposes other insects to the insecticide. Exposure occurs by contact, grooming and food exchange.

This secondary kill action is a primary contributor to both Phantom's incredible performance and its ability to control entire pest populations at low doses.

Phantom is not only a Termiticide that kills termites by ingestion and contact, but also a powerful and effective insecticide for ants and cockroaches . Phantom combines nonrepellency, superior control, long-lasting effects in a low-dose, virtually odorless formulation. Phantom can be used as a soil drench, wall foam or as a general use spray as desired.

FAQ'S Phantom Termiticide-Insecticide

Q: How does Phantom work?

A: Chlorfenapyr, the state-of-the-art active ingredient in Phantom, works differently than other termiticides, which typically attack the insect's nerve cells. Instead, Phantom attacks cells in the insect's body and prevents these cells from generating sufficient energy to sustain life.

Q: How do termites come in contact with Phantom?

A: Phantom is a truly nonrepellent termiticide. That means that termites don't know it's there. Once Phantom has been applied to the soil and a perimeter has been established, foraging termites acquire the termiticide as they pass directly through the treated zone. Secondly, toxic doses of chlorfenapyr are transferred to other members of the colony through such mechanisms as trophallaxis, which involve shared feeding of contaminated secretions and food. As we say, "Some lines should never be crossed," and "fortunately, termites have no idea where this one is."

Q: Do termites die immediately upon contact with Phantom?

A: No. Phantom works through a process called delayed action mortality. Because termites don't die immediately upon contact with Phantom, they have the opportunity to distribute the termiticide to their nestmates. They also die away from the Phantom Perimeter, eliminating the potential for accumulated corpses that would drive other termites away from the treated area

Q: Does Phantom only control termites?

A: No. Phantom is also labeled for control of general household pests inside both residential and commercial structures. Essentially, Phantom will have a deleterious effect upon all insects that have behavioral patterns which allow trafficking through the treated area. In this respect, Phantom has been proven to be highly effective on both cockroaches and ants.

Leaves residue on surfaces
After spraying the baseboard areas for customers, they complain that after drying Phantom left a powder residue. Never had one complaint when I was able to use Demand.

Great product!
Mixed Phantom with apple juice instead of water and sprayed for houseflies in waste disposal/garbage areas. This was very effective! The sugar acts as a phagostimulant, and gives flies a much higher dose of active ingredient than they would receive from contact only. This product is non-staining, non-repellent and also worked great for indoor cockroach control. Highly recommend!

Pretty good stuff
Well the first thing I noticed with Phantom is that it's from Triangle circle BASF and made in Germany it seems like all the pest products from Triangle circle and made in Germany work very good...we used this for an apartment complex

Great product
I sprayed with Phantom and the Gentrol concentrate to get rid of the horrible german cockroaches that plagued my existence. It took about a month to start seeing results but it was totally worth it. It's been 4 months almost completely roach free! Never going back to paying for professional pest control!

Knocks out Carpenter Ants but BE PATIENT!!!
Bought some Phantom to take care of some Carpenter Ants during swarming season. We had a really bad infestation. The ants would emerge at dusk every night and swarm the kitchen. It got so bad that we had to make sure that all of our cooking was finished before sunset because they would come out of the recessed lights and end up falling on our heads and in our food on the stove. The product was recommended to me by an exterminator friend of the family. If you apply the product thoroughly as labeled, IT WILL DO ITS JOB. You have to make sure you don't apply any other product after initial application that is a repellant because it will completely defeat the purpose of using a non-repellant such as this. You must resist the urge to pull out that can of RAID and go to town on them. Otherwise they will vacate the area and then you did all that hard work for nothing. It took about seven days before there was a noticeable drop in numbers and by ten days it was significant. After 14 days the ants were gone. This stuff really works. Now I treat indoors every 60 days to control all different types of crawly critters. No problems whatsoever. Some people complain about the price but when you look at it in perspective, you're getting complete treatment for less than ten bucks. Try hiring an exterminator for that price.

Highly Effective in Treating and Killing Ants
Used this indoors around baseboards and outdoors around parameter of house and planting beds where ants were active, Phantom resulted in lots of dead ants. I eliminated my pest control guy who used this same product. I'm impressed with this highly effective product. Review by Scott / (Posted on 3/2/2012)
