  • Easy-to-use, low odour and non-staining unique formulation
  • Versatile use indoors and out, on porous and non-porous surfaces

 

DEMAND DUO keeps working long after you have left the premises, giving you confidence that you will not have call backs. And as DEMAND DUO is effective at low rates, it also allows you to reduce chemical use and move to maintenance rates if required.

The Science

DEMAND DUO provides rapid knockdown of even hard-to-control pests like German cockroaches while continuing to work for you up to 90 days. Compared to many products on the market, DEMAND DUO outpaces other formulations’ knockdown capabilities while also outperforming on longevity. It does not matter if DEMAND DUO is on a porous or non-porous surface, it performs strongly on almost all surfaces due to the unique ZC formulation.

The longevity of DEMAND DUO is due to the unique ZC formulation that stays stable on surfaces; the quality milling and size distribution of the SC component, combined with industry leading iCAP™ encapsulation, makes it effective at maintaining control by ensuring a gradual diffusion over a long period of time. 

During trials,1 German cockroaches were exposed to a treated surface for 30 minutes then removed and assessed for mortality. DEMAND DUO (40 mL/5 L) showed 100% knockdown at 48 hours versus 86% for Imidacloprid + Beta-Cyfluthrin* (50 mL/5 L). At intervals of 30 days, 60 days and 90 days in the lab, new batches of cockroaches were exposed to the rubber mat surface. DEMAND DUO showed ongoing control over a three-month period, giving control between 94% and 100%.

In a similar trial,2 German cockroaches were exposed for one hour to surfaces (plywood and ceramic tiles) treated by Dinotefuran** (30 g/10 L and 30 g/5 L respectively) and DEMAND DUO (40 mL/5 L) then removed and assessed for mortality. DEMAND DUO showed 100% control at 30 mins on the non-porous (ceramic tile) surface versus 83% for Dinotefuran**, as well as 100% control at 60 mins for the porous (plywood) surface versus 58% for Dinotefuran**.

The result: DEMAND DUO can be used indoors and outdoors, on porous and non-porous surfaces, against a broad spectrum of pests.

 

*Product concentration is 50 g/L Imidacloprid + 25 g/L Beta-Cyfluthrin.

Tips for Use

  • DEMAND DUO is diluted with water for application using hand-held or power-operated application equipment as a coarse spray for crack-and-crevice, spot treatments, perimeter treatments and surface treatments.
  • Initial clean-out rate allows for higher dose in difficult and high pest situations.
  • Maintenance rate provides control, keeping areas clean and clear of pests in a very economical manner long term.
  • Convenient single water rate of 5 L per 100m2 for all uses, with no need to switch between water volumes to account for surface type.
