Bifen XTS

Bifen XTS is an emulsifiable concentrate containing 25.1% bifenthrin. Bifen XTS penetrates porous surfaces far better than Bifen IT making it the product of choice for boring bark beetles such as black turpentine beetles, mountain pine beetles, western pine tip beetles, southern pine tip beetles, and engraver beetles. In addition to the beetles, Bifen XTS is labeled for a full range of insects including mole crickets, termites, ants and many lawn and garden insects such as armyworms, cutworms, and sodwebworms. 

Yield: One quart yields 50-1200 gallons depending on target insect.

Application: Use 0.30 fl oz (0.06% dilution rate) per 1000 sq feet for the majority of insects on the label.

Mole Crickets

Use Bifen XTS at a lower rate in the early Spring to control overwintered Mole Crickets. Use the higher rate in late- Summer or early Fall to control adult Mole Crickets.

Ornamentals and Trees

Ornamentals and Trees: Dilute 0.26 to 1.28 fl. oz. of Bifen XTS per 10 gallons of water and apply at the rate of 10 gallons per 4,356 square feet. One gallon of finish spray will treat 435 sq. ft. If a higher volume application is needed to sufficiently cover the plant canopy, Bifen XTS can be diluted in large volumes of water and applied through low volume equipment as long as the maximum label rate (1.28 fluid ounces per 4,356 square feet) is not exceeded.

Armyworms, Cutworms and Sodwebworms

To ensure that the best control of Armyworms, Cutworms, and Sod Webworms is achieved, postpone watering or mowing for 24 hours following application of Bifen XTS.

Sprayed Cedar trees when bagworms first appeared. Will wait to see how many will still be alive in a couple of weeks.

Outstanding Pest Control
Received our product in excellent time and great condition. Used the product in a combined lawn mix spray in Central Texas with Gordon's Liquid Weed-n-feed mixed with Bifen XTS and applied it with a 31 gal. towed sprayer. There were many fire ant mounds seen during the application and many spiders in the grass A month after spray application there are no visible fire ant mounds and the spiders are few and far between. Also, the lawn appears to be "Grass."

great Company
I have used this chemical before and it works great but this company does a super job getting it to You when they say they will. I'll be spending more money with them. Not easy to find people today that will do what they say they will but these folks do.

Review by slider / (Posted on 10/12/2017)
I bought this for our yard here in Dalton, Ga. the mosquitos were ruining our fun outside because my family and I would get slap tore up when we went outside! So I read A LOT about Bifen and decided to go ahead and get the gallon so we wouldn't have to buy it again for awhile. The first time we used it it did AWESOME and it got rid of the mosquitoes and several other bugs as well. Three weeks later we started seeing some more mosquitoes biting us so we sprayed again but sadly it didn't work as well as the first time cause we still had them just not as bad so we sprayed again and sadly we still have them but they are nowhere near as bad as they were! But we did just get done cleaning up our yard like majorly so I'm thinking when we spray a forth time it will last till we have to spray again in spring time or something. I would say this helped our mosquito problem somewhat. We will finish out the whole gallon and see how it goes from there

Bifen XTS results
I've been using this product for several years now. I live out in the country, and when I spray there is always a very significant impact on grasshoppers, crickets, fire ants, and even spiders in the yard and outside house perimeter area. I really like Bifen XTS and would recommend it.

Sounds good !
All the reviews look good on this stuff so I am trying it..
My longtime choice has always been Permethrin SFR.
So this time I mixed the two together.
From the amount of dead creepy crawlers around the outside of the house, it is working as needed.
Just wanted to change up the chemicals a bit to confuse em.
Whats not to like !

bifen xls
I had some pecan trees that had an insect infestation and it killed one before I knew it the other I sprayed and it stopped the insects and they did not come back. This is a great all around pest control treatment not only is it good for termites it works for most insects. My sister had roaches in a storage building and it got rid of them in one spraying.

Wouldn't be without it!
I've been spraying independently for years as a homeowner & am very satisfied with kill and prevention of every creepy thing I despise! I am now battling fruit fly from carrying fruit boxes in and contaminated house plants that spent time outside. Wow, what an eye opener! Never had this problem but will end it with Bifen XTS and regular management spraying.
Review by Theresa Myers / (Posted on 12/15/2016)
Great product. Will not be without it
Very satisfied with this product. Been using it wor years. Along with the wisdom granules. Do not get ants around or inside the house. Along with no spiders cinch bugs etc.
Review by Peter / (Posted on 9/29/2016)
Does the job for me.
This is a very good product.
Review by Joe / (Posted on 9/26/2016)
Very satisfied customer
Mixed full container with 50 gallon sprayer for 1 acre . Let me say I have never been able to enjoy playing in the yard with the kids as much as I have since treatment. If there was a downside, I would say that I miss seeing lighting bugs in the yard! I will be back to buy more when the pest- mosquitos return.
Review by Blaydesj / (Posted on 9/13/2016)
army worms
Army worms came like a vengeance because of the recent drought in Ga. We needed something powerful and economical for a 22 acre pasture....Bifen XTS did the work, and killed them. We simply mixed 20 oz in our 100 gallon tank, and that covered well 3-4 acres.
Review by cacl / (Posted on 9/7/2016)
I'm eliminating my sow bugs, or as some of you prefer roly-poly or pill or potato bugs !! As advertised, this 'superman' of crawler killers, appears to do its job totally properly !! I sprayed my first application in and around areas that my 'pollinators' are not in or at this time of year !! I'll wait for my foliage to die down this fall, then really give my total planting perimeter a full dose of protection and then repeat this application in the spring prior to my plants germination !!

best yet
great for controling ants, spiders, even misquitos. i use lighter applications for maintainance.
Review by mack 64 / (Posted on 7/7/2015)
Works good
Used on fire ants last summer and fall. Worked great - but as expected, the ants are regrouping for attacks this spring.
Review by Rob / (Posted on 4/28/2015)
Was recommended by a friend to control the mosquitos. Normal pest control company wanted to charge $30 a month. This works even better, within 24 hours we noticed such a difference.
Has worked wonders on ants also, (those were the only problems we had)
Did not notice any odor, is known to be pet friendly so a big plus.
Easy to apply and a GREAT DEAL!
Make sure to read instructions so you can dilute it properly.
Would highly recommend, shipping was also great. ordered thursday night and was on my porch Friday afternoon. AWESOME!
Review by Gaby / (Posted on 8/18/2014)
I use for roach, ant, fireant and termite control with 90 day application standard. Infestation is negligible after use even when apartment is overrun with roaches. 24 hours no bugs with retreat in 2 weeks to take care of egg hatch. Awesome product with minimal odor. Residue is white and last more than 90 days with no bugs. Flying or otherwise. Best pest control I have used at any price. Fire ants are instant results with treatment only when active mound found.
Review by JERRY / (Posted on 7/18/2014)
Excellent product and cost effective
Make sure you read the label! This product can be reduced to a mere 1/3 ounce per gallon of water for maintenance control around the perimeter of the home. I also use it as a broadcast style spray in the yard. I have a 15 gallon tank on my 4 wheeler so the application is quite simple either using the spray wand or nozzles. Achieving control around the exterior of the structure means I need not use this product indoors.

By the way, our State Bird is the Mosquito. in addition we have box elder beetles, carpenter ants, Asian beetles and of course the common spiders, vermin, etc.

Anyway, I have had good success with this product. I generally apply it about every 4 to 6 weeks to maintain "control". The bang for your buck was my primary consideration and I would recommend this product.
Review by Bugoff / (Posted on 4/29/2014)
I liked it
I have been using permethrin for my pine beetles and it seemed like I was not getting the results I used to. I called and was told to buy Bifen XTS and it worked good. The only thing I didn't like about it was the smell. It was outside in the yard but mixing it was smelly. Overall I am pleased.
