                  The following are many of the most frequently asked questions about Syngenta's Demand CS insecticide. If you have additional questions please feel free to contact your Syngenta territory manager.

                  How much Demand CS should I use per gallon of water?
                  Per label directions, you should use between 0.2-0.8 fluid ounces per gallon of water, depending on pest type and pressure. You can reference the dilution chart on the product label. Apply a high volume of water within the label’s concentration rates for penetrating flower beds with thick layers of rock or mulch. Watch this video for more information.

                  What is the iCAP technology in Demand CS?
                  Demand CS with iCAP technology was the first micro-encapsulated pyrethroid product in the professional pest management industry. It forms millions of multiple-sized, dual-walled microcaps around the active ingredient (lambda-cyhalothrin) that easily adhere to pests’ waxy cuticles as they travel along a treated surface. Learn more about the power of iCAP technology in this video.

                  Will Demand CS leave any residue?
                  The small amount of microencapsulated residue left from a Demand CS application is usually not noticeable. However, if you would like to remove it, you can do so with any mild cleaner appropriate for the surface being cleaned, or with hot, soapy water.

                  What pests does Demand CS insecticide help control?
                  Demand CS offers up to 90 days of control of more than 30 pests including mosquitoes, ticks, fleas (outdoors only), ants and cockroaches. For additional control of ants and cockroaches, consider using baits such as Advion® Ant gel bait, Advion Cockroach gel bait and Advion Insect granular bait. A full list of labeled pests can be found on the product label or via the “Labeled Pests” icon above.

                    The Asian tiger mosquito, Aedes albopictus, is one of the most invasive vector mosquito species. Its affinity for cryptic, man-made breeding sites, especially those in urban or suburban settings, has resulted in its prolific spread. As a container-breeding mosquito, it prefers containers in shaded areas that can hold water for approximately one week (enough time to develop from egg to adult).
