Why Use Suspend SC?

I've used Suspend SC for a couple of years now around my house, and highly recommend this chemical. I am going to do my best to tell you about why you should use Suspend SC, providing both my practical experiences and information from Bayer, the manufacturer of this chemical.bayer-logo.jpg

One of the benefits of Suspsend SC is the very thing that makes writing about it so difficult, i.e. this chemical will kill so many different kinds of pests, and depending on what it is you want to kill, the tenor of this article may not strike home for you.  Let's start by taking a quick look at what it will kill and then we can go into some specifics that will apply to every one, such as proper mixing, etc.


I certainly hope you will never find yourself having to deal with all of the pests Suspend SC will kill, buy it's nice to know that when you do have to deal with killing pests, chances are better than not that all you are going to need is Suspend SC.  Whether it's ticks or mosquitoes, Suspend SC will eradicate them quickly and effectively.  Myself, I am always having to deal with wasps and yellow jackets on my back deck.  I've got that perfect deck railing that yellow jackets just love to build nests in.  This made the deck almost impossible to use when the weather was good, and even if I broke out the wasp killing spray, it was only a very, very temporary solution.  It wasn't unitl I obtained some Suspend SC that I was able to actually solve my problem.  More on that in a minute.

If you have spiders coming into your home, which is not only scary and potentially painful from bites, then you really need some Suspend SC.  Suspend SC kills these pests, and more:

  • Spiderssuspend-sc-1pint-sml.png
  • Fleas
  • Bedbugs
  • Lice
  • Mosquitoes
  • Yellowjackets
  • Ticks
  • Wasps
  • Cockroaches
  • Scorpions
  • Ants

Suspend SC also controls ornamental and pantry pests, including flour beetles and grain borers.

Lots of people get Suspend SC to treat bed bugs.  These are particularly nasty creatures are usually the reason that people learn about Suspend SC in the first place.  Forget the fact that Suspend SC is the worst nightmare for the fifty plus pests it kills, it's the WORST nightmare for bed bugs.  Thanks to the Suspend SC's special crystal film technology, bugs just don't stand a chance.  Generally once someone learns about Suspend SC, trying to rid themselves of the one specific pest making their life less than ideal, they then learn about how it's the pest control chemical of choice for killing all kinds of other pests.  

It's an insecticide concentrate that goes a long way.  A single pint of Suspend SC is going to last the average homeowner for a couple of years and will be used in several scenarios at a significatn cost savings over the use of a professional pest management program.  Nothing against the professionals, there are a lot of people out there that do not want to do it themselves, and the professionals are the ones they should call.  


Does Suspend SC Come With Directions?

Oh, you better beleive it!  Matter of fact, you can click here to see the SUSPEND SC LABEL.  When you get your bottle of Suspend SC, you will find that this product label is attached to the front of the bottle.  To take a peek at this label, simply peel it off of the bottle from the corner.  it will unfold page after page, and you will see the instrucitons look very long, but do not let this confuse you, this product is very easy to use.  Still, you will want to take the time to go through this product label, this is a professional pest control insecticide that will kill many different pests, and you want to make sure that you've read about the procedure for killing the pest you want dead.

Also, Suspend SC is an insecticide concentrate; what this means is that you don't just dump the whole thing into a sprayer and go nuts.  You have to measure it out according to the pest you are trying to kill and mix it up in some water.  The measured amount will go into a one-gallon sprayer.  You do not need a real expensive sprayer to accomplish this, but you do need a one-gallon sprayer of some sort.  you will know how much Suspend SC to measure out because it is clearly indicated on the label.

If you've never mixed up an insecticide concentrate like Suspend SC before, it's really easy.  First, getpoly-sprayer.jpeg a one-gallon poly sprayer.  We sell them, but honestly, it's not something that you need to spend a lot of money on, and generally a cheap, plastic/poly one gallon sprayer like the kind you can get at WalMart, KMart, etc., is going to do a fine job for you.  Please do not buy a stainless steel B&G sprayer if you are just planning on doing your own perimeter treatments every now and then.  They are nice, but expensive, and not necessary for do your own pest control.  

Okay, so the operation of the sprayer should be pretty straight forward; simply unscrew the top and remove it from the sprayer.  When you take the top off, be very careful, as if it's under pressure it could vent chemical at you!  Let's put about a third of a gallon of water into it first.  Then measure out the amount of chemical you are going to need, and pour that into the sprayer.  Finish adding the water to get it up to the one gallon line, replace the top making sure to hand tighten securely.  Then you want to shake the sprayer up a bit to mix the chemical well with the water.  Time to pump the sprayer up to build up air pressure inside the sprayer and once your arm is tired, it's now time to go spray and lay down that protection you've been needing.  If for any reason your sprayer is not holding pressure, unscrew it and check the seal.  There should be a large "O" ring that needs to be properly seated when closing the sprayer, or it won't hold pressure.  

I like to use the spray lock on my sprayer.  This allows me to walk around and spray without having to hold the trigger down.  When the spray starts to loose its pressure I simply unlock the trigger, and pump the sprayer up again.

As far as measuring out the Suspend SC, you will notice by looking at the bottle that there are two necks on the bottle.  The one on the right side is used for pouring large amounts of chemcial, we generally will not use this side.  The other side is graduated with measurements and has a small tube running up the side of the bottle to this resivoir.  To get the Suspend SC into this measuring reservoir, make sure both caps are on, and simply squeeze the bottle.  Once you have the correct amount in the reservoir, simply unscrew that cap and pour it into your sprayer.

I found that my yellow jackets like to get in between my siding and my house, so I make sure that any opening, no matter how small, gets some spray shot into it.  REMEMBER:  Suspend SC is NOT a knock down spray.  While it is for sure that the yellow jackets are going to die after getting a direct dose of spray, they are probably going to have enough steam left in them to exact some pre-death revenge, so be careful when spraying live nests, and into enclosed areas where live nests may be present.

One last thing about these one gallon poly sprayers.  If you are going to be spraying other chemicals, it's really best to get a sprayer for each of them.  For example, we spray Glysophate (generic RoundUp) onto weeds, the last mistake you want to make is to accidentallhy grab the sprayer with Glyphosate and run out to do what you thought was a perimeter pest treatment.  So, label your sprayers really good so you don't ever grab the wrong thing.


Suspend SC Insecticide Provides Long-Term Results

Okay, so just how long does this stuff work?  Well, to continue with my previous example of using it on my back deck against the yellow jackets, I sprayed initially and didn't see a yellow jacket for about three months.  My general rule of thumb is if I see a yellow jacket, I'll watch him for a second and see what he does.  Generally they will poke a round a bit and then just take off and go away because they walked through some of the residual Suspend SC and immediately started to feel not so good, lol.  If I discover a couple starting to make a new nest, then I know it's time to spray, and generally, as mentioned, that's about every three months.  Remember, I am not a professional exterminator, I am just trying to take my backyard deck back from the yellow jackets, but I learned a long time ago that it's better to learn from the professionals and that way you don't have to beat your head against the wall trying to reinvent the wheel.  This stuff works, and people pay professionals a lot of money to mix and spray it for them.  If you think you can mix and spray, then you can solve your own problem for a whole lot less money.

Okay, so for you super technical people out there - how is it that this stuff, when simply sprayed on a surface can work so long??  Well, Suspend SC has micro-crystals. The micro-crystals give Suspend SC a long residual and instead of being absorbed into porous materials, they stay on the surface. As a result, insects continue to contact them long after the insecticide has been applied. Yet Suspend SC leaves no visible residue, has virtually no odor, and won't clog spray equipment.  Sound good? 


Suspend SC is a premium, high-grade formulation that contains deltamethrin, a third-generation pyrethroid (man-made version of pyrethrum, the natural insecticide produced by chrysanthemums.) It’s different from older pyrethroids because it’s a single, pure isomer, so it’s 100% active and has the maximum power to kill insects. Recommended concentrations are flexible, too. They range from as low as 0.0015% (far lower than for most other insecticides, pyrethroids included) to as high as 0.06%.

There is something known as pesticide resistance that means what works now on your bugs may not work after months of constant use.  No worries, should you ever get to that stage of your pest management plan, we have other chemcals that can step in and continue doing a good job for you.

What about my pets?  Are they safe around Suspend SC?

As long as you use this product according to the instructions, then yes, pets, humans, small children are all safe. The biggest thing to remember is too not let your pets have contact with this chemical until the spray is dry, and despite it probably being okay, personally I would not spray your pets bed with this. It's not because it's going to kill the dog or anything, matter of fact, you could feed this to your dog every day for weeks and the worst he's going to suffer is some diarrhea and vomiting.  Still, who wants to risk a dog having diarrhea and vomiting all over?  For us bird lovers out there, you'll be pleased to know that it is non-toxic to birds should they manage to eat it, or get sprayed.

One other thing.  Some people have commented that they've sprayed a bed bug or yellow jacket, or spider directly, right from their sprayer and watched the pest just get up and walk away.  What's up with that?  Well, remember, it's not a knock down spray.  Lots of times if you continue to watch the pest for a few more minutes, you'll see it slow down and eventually die.  Not always though.  However, rest assured that it is working, but sometimes it can take a few hours or even days, giving the bugs enough time to run, find cover, and then they die, out of sight.

For first time treatments, you can wait a couple of weeks between the first and second time you spray, for optimal effictiveness.  Otherwise, wait three months.  That second spraying is to make sure that you've laid down a nice coat to take care of any newbies that hatch from eggs that were laid.


What's in this Stuff, and How Does It Work?

The active ingredient in Suspend SC is something called Deltamethrin, and it's something called a pyrethroid.  It kills when a pest touches it and when it eats anything sprayed with the Suspend SC.  Deltamethrin rapidly paralyzes the pests nervous system.  It has a very quick disabling effect, and death seems to occur because of irreversible damage to its nervous system. It is considered to be one of the most effective and powerful of all the synthetic pyrethroids out there.  

What is a Perimeter Treatment, and What Does it Do for Me?

If you've got bugs, like spiders, ants, roaches, etc., coming into your home, Suspend SC is ideal for perimeter treatment, allowing you to create a strong barrier around your home. With Suspend SC’s broad label, you get the job done the first time, your happy, you tell your freinds, they come here and buy some Suspend SC, and we're all happy.  Basically all a perimeter treatment is, is when you take you mixed up sprayer full of Suspend SC mix and walk around your home spraying around doors, windows, the base of your home, and out from the house about 12" or so to create that barrier that pests have to walk through to get into your home.  Remember, once they've made contact with this stuff, they are going to die.  So, do a good job spraying around the perimeter of your home and you won't leave them a way in without making contact with the spray.  Remember, this "zone" is going to last for about three months!

Hey, What is the Difference Between SUSPEND SC and SUSPEND POLYZONE?

Great question - Both Suspend SC and Suspend Polyzone both have the same active ingrediant, i.e. Deltamethrin, the difference is that they are fomulated very differently.  The Polyzone is designed to last longer outside.  If you get a lot of rain, or high humidity, you might have to spray Suspend SC every 30 days or so.  If you want to spray less outside, then using Suspend Polyzone might require spraying only every 90 days or so.  The reason for this is that the Polyzone formulation has this really neat "poly" coating that allows it to stick to stuff better, and resist the effects of weather, therefore, it simply lasts longer.  Click here to read more about SUSPEND POLYZONE.
