The Best Solution for Optimal Mosquito Control
Mosquitoes can be more than an annoyance. They can carry serious diseases such as Zika, Dengue, Ross River Fever, Brahma Virus and Murray Valley Encephalitis. Demand® with iCAP technology™ is a highly effective solution for controlling mosquito problems, such as in suburban areas and in residential backyards. These treatments can be an extension of your current perimeter work, with application to areas where mosquitoes hide and rest. Studies have shown customers will pay $75 or more per treatment for mosquito relief, since most homeowners would rather be enjoying their yards and porches than fighting mosquitoes.
iCAP TECHNOLOGY DELIVERS LONG-LASTING CONTROL
Demand® combines an advanced-generation pyrethroid with a unique capsule suspension formulation for superior mosquito control, delivering maximum, long-term efficacy.
The active ingredient, lambda-cyhalothrin, is enclosed within microcapsules for protection from surface pH extremes, sunlight and UV light that may lessen its performance. As a result, Demand® remains potent after extended exposure in outdoor elements.
THE DEMAND® ADVANTAGES
Versatility. Demand® provides effective control of a wide range of adult mosquitoes in open areas. There are several species of mosquitos. Each of these species of Mosquito’s can be responsible for spreading the above different virus or disease. It is only the female Mosquito that bites humans and other mammals for a blood meal, so she can lay her eggs, so the Mosquito species survives.
Different Mosquito species feed at differing times of the day and night, but they all have a unique habit of tasting with their mouth parts, the surface they land on. This is where you can apply a residual insecticide for great effect.
EASY TRANSFERAL AND TIMED RELEASE
Demand® delivers effective control with the active ingredient’s diffusion through the pest’s cuticle. Demand® is engineered so that once applied to the shaded and humid areas where mosquitoes rest, some microcapsules release quickly while others remain on the surface for easy transferal and longer control. Demand® should be applied to the foliage of trees and shrubs, turf, and other landing and harborages. And due to extremely low use rates, Demand® minimises the amount of chemical introduced into the environment and is a low-hazard product when applied as directed. Care should be taken to avoid bees, fishponds and pets.
USAGE RATES AND APPLICATION
Make a single application of 10L of dilute Demand® per 200m2 of surface area, applied for thorough and even coverage. Backpack equipment, power sprayer or aerosol generating equipment such as mist blowers may be used. Apply to target and perimeter areas. Repeat treatments as needed during the months that mosquitoes are active.
Particular areas to target include:
• Landscaping areas
• Dark, humid places
• Window and door screens
• Under decks and other protected areas
