Amazing Results
Every summer our home is plagued with little black ants. We are surrounded by forests so ants come with the territory. We've tried everything that was advertised as effective; traps, baits, liquid, solid, you name it. All these ants did was thank us for a great meal while parading through our kitchen.

It was a complete nightmare for weeks.

Last year we used a pest control company and paid a little over $800.00 for the year. Yes, it worked but for us, but as a retired couple, that's quite a bit of money - especially in today's economy.

As I was looking around the internet researching the different types of ants, I came across this company and I'm SO happy that I did!

Our Permethrin was delivered a couple of days ago, my husband sprayed the perimeter of our home and up the sides of the walls a little along with our deck and back garden area.

This morning we got up to have our first coffee of the day and immediately noticed that there was no ants!!

Needless to say, we're EXTREMELY happy with this company, the fast shipping and the Permethrin.


A very happy ant-free customer!

Great product to fight against borer bees
Used product on a cedar house to fend off borer bees. Pr0duct worked great!
Review by Tired of filling holes with caulk. / (Posted on 7/6/2020)
Good Product at a Good Price
I am using this to treat my hunting clothes against ticks. I blend a 0.5% concentration, spray it on, wrap the clothing in plastic overnight then let it air dry the following day. Works like a charm. I have used the rest of my unused solution to spray around the exterior foundation for carpenter ants.
Disclamer: The usage described above (treating hunting clothes) is not on the label.
Review by Andy / (Posted on 5/18/2020)

Works great for ants, ticks, fleas, and spiders in the yard and around the house.
Review by AJ / (Posted on 5/6/2020)

Use as directed on areas at issue and watch what happens next!

No more ticks!
Got rid of my yard's tick problem. My yard backs up to woods and my dog was coming out of the flowers beds with ticks. Sprayed all the beds and problem solved, will repeat in 4-6 weeks. The only issue I had was figuring out how much product to use in a gallon sprayer.

Very effective product
I used it to treat lumber, as it got infected with bore beetles. One treatment (painted on) stopped infestation. Love it!!!
There are not too many products out there for wood treatment, and this one was sent by Heaven.
I am planning to use it in the summer on my rose bushes and other plants. The bugs seem to get more and more vicious every year.

ZERO bugs.
No ticks, mosquitoes, spiders, ants, mice, snakes, stink bugs, flies. This stuff is the only one I use. Tractor/farm stores sell diluted versions for much more. I have recommended this to many friends.

We livd in the middle of the woods. We got carpender ants some years back. I was told of the permethrin sfr insecticide. Beat purchase I ever made. Have had no problem ever since with the ants. Have also used it evdry spring eversince. Got stink bugs a couple years ago. Sprayed , had to use a leaf blower every day to remove the dead bugs from our porch. Will never use any other product.

I am using this mixed with Demand CS in a northern AZ cabin for scorpions. The only down side - hunting scorpions is kind of fun and now I can't find any.
Review by Kitty / (Posted on 9/11/2018)
worked on the mosquitoes around our pond
We have two ponds on the from and side of our house, one about 50 feet away and the other about 50 yards away. Mosquitoes were a problem but a couple of applications has reduced their presence greatly. Thanks!
Review by mesquito neutralizer / (Posted on 7/3/2018)
Works nicely on my fleas.
Using Permethrin SFR to control fleas around the dog kennel and in the adjacent yard. It knocks them down quickly ... but them cussed fleas is tenacious. I've a large infestation and young keep emerging. Repeated applications should take a toll on them though. I couldn't find this locally and this purchase was surprisingly convenient and cost wise. I'm a satisfied shopper.

Review by bob / (Posted on 4/2/2018)
If you Haven't tried this......you are losing out
Yep great stuff, you will see dead bugs almost instantly...just wait 20 minutes and there will be more than you can count if you live like some where such as Florida. Get the big bottle it is the best way to purchase.
Review by USCG SHANE / (Posted on 11/30/2017)
Wow! Proof is in the body count!
First time I used this, wow, I walked out side 15 minutes after I used it and palmento roaches where every where....belly up dead. Had to break out a broom and sweep them up and off my long stretch of a walkway to my front door. I started at the areas closest to the house and worked the spray out from the house...chasing them away from the docile. Bodies of insects showed up evey where in just a couple hours after use...minutes even. Highly recommend this stuff! Found this web site and they are really fairly priced if not the lowest I have seen yet.

It works ! and has worked for years
Have used this stuff for years. It works. Sprayed twice a year I have never had any unwanted guests.
This year I am bumping the barrier up with the addition of Bifen XTS.
Figuring the combo will confuse the little buggers.
Review by Desert Living / (Posted on 3/27/2017)
Excellent product
Perfect concentrated base for preparing various solutions for varying applications. Would appreciate MDSs or equivalent identifying 'other' ingredients, especially carrier molecules or compound.
Review by TxAg / (Posted on 2/1/2017)
great product. life saver
thank you so much. has eliminated the grass ants in my yard and helps control ticks on my pups and have not seen the usual bugs I see in rural Texas countyside where I live.
This is the 4th bottle I have purchased and really recommend the product.

better than other DIY pest products, and arrived super fast!
Review by J / (Posted on 11/7/2016)
Good stuff
It's been over a week after I sprayed and I can still sit on my patio without getting bit by mosquitoes!! I haven't even seen them but I am sure they will come back -((. Then I will spray again. Good product. Thank you!
Review by Dana / (Posted on 7/6/2016)
product worked great,shipped very fast
I have been working on a project in the woods behind our house and every day have found ticks on me when returning home. One day I removed 6. After spraying the Permethrin I have not seen a single tick. I would highly recommend this product
Review by papa george / (Posted on 7/2/2016)
Very good product and priced very good.
have been using this for several years. takes care of most problem bugs. on Mosquitoes, I spray it into the vegetation where they hide during the day and around the places where they lay eggs. cuts down on them quite well but those pests will migrate from quite a distance so in about 3 weeks you need to apply again.
the cost of this is good enough that one can afford to do that.sure beats the cost of permethrin at the local farm store that is only 10%
Review by Don / (Posted on 6/30/2016)
Don't buy the Home Depot, Lowes crap anymore!
I just got finished spraying the yard and all you see is dead bugs all around on their backs. I have used the products from Ortho, Spectracide, Bayer, and they are all trash. This place was so easy to order from and shipping was quick. I haven't seen this many bugs dead in years. I used a hose end sprayer with 15 gal. of product and all I was doing was watering the lawn. I just used my pump up sprayer with 5 gal. of product using 1 2/3 oz. per gallon and it was easy to do the whole yard. We have inside cats that love to go into the garage. My wife saw a tick crawling up the door jam inside the house. I also get ticks on me when I work in the yard. I have been using the crap Triazicide for years and it never worked. I loved my old diazinon with its oil base formula and this also is an oil based product. I guess that is why it works so well. The only way I could stop ants from entering the house was to use an old can of Raid ant killer that I sprayed on the outside of the doors. This is great stuff so I am very happy with it!
Review by Joe K / (Posted on 6/13/2016)
not sure
I wish I could give 5 stars like the other reviews, but I am still seeing all the insects I was trying to get rid of. Mosquitoes are still biting and other insects are still a pest. I will try it again and mix a little bit more to make it more effective and watch for the results. Thank you.

Gets it DONE!!!!
Had an Issue with Hornets and After they Got a Taste of this, They aint been back. Great for Ants and Many other Crawling Insects. But, if you want to Knock Em Down right out of the Air, Get this stuff, it WORKS and works Well!!!
Review by Kenny D / (Posted on 5/6/2015)
works great
Have used this for years and it works great. Kills fleas, yellow jackets, roaches, ants, carpenter bees, spiders and any crawly things I don't want around.
Review by Jim / (Posted on 3/31/2015)
What'll kill ants but not other insects?
I'm a beekeeper, so I needed a bee-friendly method of ant control around the hives. I made a drench of one and two-thirds ounces to a gallon of water and I haven't seen an ant since. The ants had been crawling around the hive entrance.
Nothing else has come close to ridding the ant problem.
I'm sold for life! and I'll tell everyone.
Review by Solarly / (Posted on 11/14/2014)
This is a good all around bug spray
Buy it. Simple enough, it works great. We moved into a house with a lot of spiders. Cave crickets and all other kinds sprayed this stuff and haven't seen a live bug for almost a year which means I have forgotten to spray again.
Review by Jake / (Posted on 10/25/2014)
First, the customer service is excellent, the product itself was affordable and of good quality. The order was completed in a timely manner, slightly ahead of schedule.
I have been a customer for several years and It's pleasing to know that this company has a solid footing in the market place.
The staff has good knowledge of the products they sell and can offer sound advice.

Review by katniss / (Posted on 9/5/2014)
Awesome product and a great value
I started using this product after having success with a Thermacell to repel sand gnats and mosquitoes. This is the active ingredient used in the Thermacell repellent "pads", so I researched and found the best prices on permethrin here. I works on all yard pests and around the house, and I've stopped using anything else. You can't beat the cost per unit.volume, and a 5 quart container lasts for a long, long time.
Highly recommended for my north Florida home and yard needs!

Review by Dave / (Posted on 6/26/2014)
Used according to label instructions it eliminated ticks, biting flies, and knocked out the mosquitoes from our back yard and surrounding wooded area. I used a hose attachment garden sprayer and dialed the setting down to the lowest setting (1tsp/gal) with great results. Bravo.
Review by Teddi / (Posted on 6/19/2014)

We use this for general pest control in the yard including mosquitoes and ants. Works great. Reapply every month. Do Yourself Pest Control is a great company with knowledgeable staff willing to answer any questions when you call.

Review by zorro / (Posted on 5/27/2014)
This product is awesome, works great on black widow spiders too.
Odd it says it's safe enough to to used on your dog o-:) Not that I would.

It leaves a residue which seems to work great on black widow spiders :) I bought it because were having a big crop of ticks this year.

I don't like to use poisons unless its absolute necessary. But when I found a tick on me its time to spray. note: I just have grass and live in the suburbs

Review by Craig / (Posted on 5/15/2014)
Good product!
I bought and moved into my older home in the fall of 2013. Right away we noticed roaches (big ones!) coming out at times. A friend told me about DIY Pest Control, so I ordered this insecticide. After mixing it in my sprayer and going around all the windows/doors and the perimeter of the house and spraying, I have not seen one roach! The only bugs I have came in through the open window when cooling the house down! That's my problem, though. The bug spray seems to have worked wonders so far and as expected!

Will never be without this product
I have used this product for apprx. 4 years now and could not be happier. Works for everything i've tried it on. Used primarily for mosquitos in yard and while camping. Only problem is having to share it with everybody i know, bee problem, call Bob, neighbor has ant problem, call Bob, silverfish, call Bob, Tenants brought home Bedbugs, Call Bob, having a party in your yard, call Bob. I've found that it loses its effectiveness after 2 yrs. but usually have to order every year now anyway. Great product, easy to use, would recommend buying the qt size for the awesome measuring feature and just keep refilling it after.

Review by Karyn / (Posted on 1/1/2014)
powerful and effective

I have heard the only problem with this stuff is that it's 'knockdown' and basically is not too persistent, needing reapplication etc.

My solution to this was to mix it with something sticky like spectracide and perhaps some other relatively gooey ant killer etc.

The result is a hideous concoction that has blown insects away from my place period. Haven't seen them dead or alive anywhere.

Make sure you leave 24-36 hours drying and air out time if you do this, and for God's sake, don't breathe it. Spray it and run.

Finally, this may not be considered cool by some, but it does get results, especially if you have an infestation. It's a dark day for bugs around here.
Review by alvino / (Posted on 11/15/2013)
very effective scorpion hunter
I have used this product for many years to remove scorpions around my house seasonally. It is very effective insecticide to remove some of bad desert insects including scorpions specially. Also, it is known to be harmless to children and small pets. That is why I keep using this product.

Permethrin SFR great product / all around good insecticide / kills fast! however residual is not very good. add soap solution to give a more sticky overall application. Demon is my other favorite.

Carpenter Bees
We have used this product for our annual spring treatment on a cedar sided house for a couple years now. If we didn't we will be ensured to have carpenter bee issues within months. This is one of the few products that I have found to be easy to use and effective for our needs. Thanks for carrying it here!!
