Suspend SC is a suspended concentrate insecticide containing 0.42 lb active ingredient per gallon. Suspend SC is designed for use both indoors and outdoors and will provide effective knockdown and long residual control of the pests listed on this label.
SUSPEND SC Insecticide with DeltaGard offers the benefits of deltamethrin in a concentrated suspension of pure 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.
Suspend SC is a versatile insecticide approved for a wide variety of uses including indoor and outdoor, residential, industrial, and institutional applications. It's even approved for use in restaurants and other places where food is manufactured, processed or served. Outdoors, it can be applied to turf grass and landscape ornamentals. It's highly effective against many important pests from ants and cockroaches to spiders, scorpions and bedbugs.
Mixing Instructions for Suspend SC:
Suspend SC is intended to be mixed with water and applied with hand pressurized or power operated sprayers, such as Actisol or similar equipment, as a coarse spray or with conventional hydraulic boom-type sprayer or other suitable equipment for outdoor broadcast applications. Shake container well before using. When diluting, it is recommended to add approximately half the water to the spray tank, then add the proper amount of Suspend SC Insecticide in accordance with the rates in the appropriate Application Rate table. Agitate, then add the remaining water slowly to avoid excess foam. Thoroughly agitate the sprayer before using to insure proper suspension. If spraying is interrupted when using a back-pack or hand-held spray equipment, reinvert sprayer before use. If spray screens are used, they should be 50 mesh or larger. Dilute Suspend SC insecticide only with water. Prepare spray solution when ready to make applications.
Application Tips for Suspend SC:
Treatments may be applied at 21-day intervals, or as necessary, to maintain adequate control.
Treat specific areas that insects inhabit or where they are frequently found.
Use 0.25 to 1.5 fluid ounces of SUSPEND SC in one gallon of water and apply to adequately cover 1,000 sq. ft. Under conditions of severe pest infestations, when quick knockdown and/or longer residual control is desired, use 1 gallon of 0.06% per 1,000 sq. ft.

PEST CONTROL WITH SUSPEND SC
Cockroaches, Ants, Crickets, Silverfish, Firebrats, Centipedes, Millipedes, Cloth Moths, Earwigs, Pillbugs, Sowbugs, Scorpions and Spiders: Apply as a coarse, low pressure spot or crack and crevice spray to areas that these pests normally inhabit. Pay particular attention to dark corners of rooms and closets; floor drains; cracks and crevices in walls; along and behind baseboards; beneath and behind sinks,stoves, refrigerators, and cabinets; around plumbing and other utility installations; doors, windows and in attics and crawl spaces. Applications may be made to floor surfaces along baseboards and around air ducts. Let surfaces dry before allowing children or pets to contact surfaces.
Pantry Pest Control:
To kill adult and accessible stages of insect pests such as Lesser Grain Borers, Grain Weevils, Flour Beetles, Saw-toothed Grain Beetles, Cigarette Beetles, Merchant Grain Beetles, Angoumois Grain Moths, Mediterranean Flour Moths, Indian Meal Moths, Grain Mites and Spider Mites: Make applications to cupboards, shelving and storage areas. Remove all foodstuffs, all utensils, shelf paper andother objects before spraying. Allow all treated surfaces to dry and cover shelves with clean paper prior to replacing foodstuffs, utensils or other items. Any foodstuff accidentally contaminated with any spray solution should be discarded.
Crawling and Flying Insect Pests (such as flies, gnats, midges, mosquitoes, cockroaches, ants and silverfish):
Apply directly to walls, ceilings, window screens and other resting areas as a residual surface treatment. May be used inside residential buildings, as well as in and around carports, garages, storage sheds, unoccupied horse stables and pet kennels.
(including Pharaoh Ants): Apply to trails, around doors and windows and other areas where ants inhabit or enter premises. Bedbugs and Lice: Remove linens and wash before reuse. Apply to mattresses, especially tufts, folds, and edges until moist. Apply to the interior of the frame. Allow to dry before remaking bed.
Fleas, Carpet Beetles and Ticks:
A total management program is recommended. It is suggested that infested areas be thoroughly vacuumed prior to treatment. These areas include all carpet, upholstered furniture, baseboards and other indoor areas frequented by pets. The vacuum cleaner bag should be discarded in an outdoor trash container upon completion. Pet bedding should be cleaned or replaced. Thoroughly apply Suspend SC to rugs, carpets, upholstered furniture, pet beds, floor coverings, pet resting areas and other infested habitats. The quantity of finished spray required is dependent upon carpet/fabric density. Provide uniform coverage, apply until infested area is moist. Effective flea control includes controlling the source of flea infestations. This can require treatment of pets with a product registered by EPA for such use and treating outside areas frequented by pets. Suspend SC can also be applied out-of-doors for flea control. DO NOT treat pets with this product. Do not allow pets to contact treated areas until spray has dried.
For residual control of crawling and flying insects in and around these structures, apply as a general surface and/or crack and crevice spray. Optimal control results if facilities to be treated are clean and if the exterior perimeter is concurrently treated with Suspend SC. Apply only to areas of facility where animals are not present. Allow spray to dry before allowing reentry of animals into treated areas. Do notapply to animal feed or watering equipment. Food/Feed Handling Establishments: For control of all labeled pests, applications are permitted in food/feed and non-food/non-feed areas of food/feed handling and processing establishments as a general surface, spot or crack and crevice treatment. Not for use in Federally Inspected Meat and Poultry Plants. Food/Feed handling establishments are defined as places other than private residences in which exposed food/feed is held, processed, prepared or served. Included also are areas for receiving, storing, packing (canning, bottling, wrapping, boxing), preparing, edible waste storage and enclosed processing systems (mills, dairies, edible oils, syrups) of food/feed. Serving areas where food/feed is exposed and the facility is in operation are also considered food/feed areas. Non-Food/Non-Feed Areas: Examples of non-food/non-feed areas include garbage rooms, lavatories, floor drains (to sewers), entries and vestibules, offices, locker rooms, machine rooms, boiler rooms, mop closets and storage (after packaging, canning or bottling). All areas that insects inhabit or through which insects may enter should be treated.
General Surface Applications:
Do not use this application method in the food/feed handling areas of the facility when the facility is in operation or foods/feeds are exposed. Do not apply directly to food/feed products. Cover or remove all food/feed processing and/or handling equipment during application. After application in food/feed processing plants, cafeterias and similar facilities, wash all equipment, benches, shelving and other surfaces which food/feed will contact. Clean food/feed handling or processing equipment and thoroughly rinse with clean, fresh water. After application in bakeries, clean all food contact surfaces thoroughly with appropriate equipment. Spot or Crack and Crevice Applications: Except in federally inspected meat and poultry plants, spot or crack and crevice applications may be made while the facility is in operation provided exposed food is covered or removed from area being treated prior to application. Do not apply directly to food or food handling surfaces. In the home, do not allow spray to contact food/feed surfaces. If it does, clean surfaces with soap and water.
GENERAL PEST CONTROL OUTDOORS WITH SUSPEND SC
Use Suspend SC to control outdoor pests by application as either a perimeter treatment, residual spray or broadcast application to lawns, grounds and ornamental plantings.
When used inaccordance with label directions, Suspend SC may be applied as a perimeter treatment or as a residual spray around residential and non-residential settings. Begin applications when pests are noticed and repeat as needed.
Apply Suspend SC as a coarse low-pressure spray at the rate of 0.75 to 1.5 fl oz to surfaces of buildings, porches, screens, window frames, eves, patios, refuse dumps, garages and lawns. Repeat as needed.
To help prevent infestation of buildings, apply Suspend SC where pests are active and may find entrance. It is recommended to treat a band of soil or lawn up to 6 - 10 feet wide around and adjacent to buildings and treat the building foundation to a height of 2 to 3 feet. Apply as a coarse spray at the rate of 0.25 to 1.5 fl oz of Suspend SC per gallon of water. (See Application Rate table). Use an adequate volume to thoroughly and uniformly wet the barrier area but do not allow runoff to occur. Repeat as needed.
Fleas and Ticks:
Apply Suspend SC as a coarse wet spray to areas where fleas and ticks are most likely to be found, such as but not limited to, dog houses, kennels, runways, cracks and crevices in sidewalks, paths or patios, under plants, shrubs, bushes, trees, or other shaded, moist areas where pests may rest.
Apply Suspend SC as a drench. Dilute 1.5 oz per one gallon of water. Gently sprinkle 1 to 2 gallons of the diluted insecticide over the surface of each mound and surrounding area to a 2-foot diameter. For best results, apply in cool weather, 65 to 80oF or in early morning or late evening hours. Treat new mounds as they appear. Pressurized sprays may disturb the ants and cause migration, reducing product effectiveness.
For control of wood-infesting beetles on surfaces in homes and other structures, apply a 0.06% suspension of Suspend SC. For treatment of small areas, apply by brushing or spraying the suspension evenly on wood surfaces. For large or overhead areas of homes, apartment buildings, etc., apply as a coarse spray to thoroughly cover the area. Cover all surfaces below the area being sprayed with plastic sheeting or other material which can be disposed of by placing in trash if contamination from dripping occurs. Sprayed surfaces should be avoided until the treated area is completely dry.
For control of above-ground termites and wood-infesting beetles in localized areas, apply a 0.06% suspension or sufficient volume of foam of Suspend SC to voids and galleries in damaged wood and in spaces between wooden structural members and between the sill plate and foundation where wood is vulnerable. Applications may be made to inaccessible areas by drilling and then injecting the suspension or foam with a suitable directional injector into the damaged wood or wall voids. All treatment holes drilled in construction elements in commonly occupied areas of structures must be securely plugged.
Termite carton nests in building voids may be injected with 0.06% suspension or foam using a pointed injection tool. Multiple injection points to varying depths may be necessary. It is desirable to physically remove carton nest material from building voids when such nests are found.
Application to attics, crawl spaces, unfinished basements, or man-made voids may be made with a coarse fan spray of 0.06% suspension to control exposed worker and winged reproductive forms of termites. For control of swarming or reproductive stages of termites, apply a 0.06% suspension to the swarm or area on which they collect.
The purpose of such applications of Suspend SC is to kill workers or winged reproductive forms which may be present at the time of treatment. Such applications are not a substitute for mechanical alteration, soil treatment or foundation treatment but are merely a supplement.
Do not apply solution until location of heat or air conditioning ducts, vents, water and sewer lines and electrical conduits are known and identified. When located, applications may be made around these structures. However, caution must be taken to avoid contamination of these structural elements and airways.
