Do not apply directly to impervious horizontal surfaces such as sidewalks, driveways, and patios except as a spot or crack-and-crevice treatment. During application, do not allow pesticide to enter or runoff into storm drains, drainage ditches, gutters or surface waters.

All outdoor applications must be limited to spot or crack-and-crevice treatments only, except for the following permitted uses:

1 Treatment to soil or vegetation around structures;

2 Applications to lawns, turf, and other vegetation;

3 Applications to building foundations, up to a maximum height of 3 feet above grade;

4 Applications to underside of eaves, soffits, doors, or windows permanently protected from rainfall by a covering, overhang, awning, or other structure;

5 Applications around potential pest entry points into buildings, when limited to a surface band not to exceed one inch in width;

6 Applications made through the use of a coarse, low pressure spray to only those portions of surfaces that are directly above bare soil, lawn, turf, mulch or other vegetation, as listed on this label, and not over an impervious surface, drainage or other condition that could result in runoff into storm drains, drainage ditches, gutters, or surface waters, in order to control occasional invaders or aggregating pests.

Do not water the treated area to the point of run-off.

Do not make applications during rain.

Do not apply directly to sewers or drains, or to any area like a gutter where drainage to sewers, storm drains, water bodies, or aquatic habitat can occur, except as directed by this label.

Resistance Management
Demand CS Insecticide is a Group 3 Insecticide that contains the active ingredient lambda-cyhalothrin. Due to the inherent risk of the development of resistance to any pesticide product, it is strongly advised that Demand CS Insecticide be used in a sound resistance-management program.

It is recommended that the following resistance management practices be followed, including, but not limited to:

- Rotating Demand CS Insecticide with products with different modes of action,
- Avoiding treatment of successive generations with Demand CS Insecticide, and
- Using labeled rates at specified spray intervals.

For additional information about implementing these or other resistance management practices, consult an Extension advisor or company representative.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions


Apply as a general surface (including directed sprays) and/or crack and crevice treatment. Control is enhanced when interior and exterior perimeter applications are made in and around the livestock, poultry, and pet housing structures. Normal cleaning practices of the structure also must be followed along with applications of Demand CS Insecticide to effectively control the crawling and flying insect pests listed in the table.

For unoccupied areas of livestock barns or housing structures, apply to floors, vertical, and overhead surfaces where crawling or flying insect pests are or may be present. Feeders, waterers, and feed carts should be covered before application to prevent contamination. Do not apply to milk rooms or feed rooms. Pay attention to animal areas including stanchions, pipes, windows and doors, and areas where insect pests hide or congregate. Exterior applications to south facing walls and foundation perimeters can help prevent interior infestations of flying and crawling insect pests.

For poultry houses, apply to floor area (birds grown on litter) or to walls, posts, and cage framing (birds grown in cages). Application should also be made into cracks and crevices around insulation. Reapply after each growout or sanitization procedure. Indoor control can be enhanced by making perimeter treatments around the outside of building foundations to prevent immigrating adult beetles. Apply in a uniform band 1–3 ft. up and 2–6 ft. out from foundation. Maintaining a year-round treatment program will prevent background populations from reaching problem levels.

Do not make interior applications of Demand CS Insecticide in areas of facility where animals other than cattle or calves are present. Allow treated surfaces to completely dry before restocking the facility.

DO NOT make applications to any animal feedstuffs, water, or watering equipment.

DO NOT contaminate any animal food, feed, or water in and around livestock, poultry, or pet housing when making applications.

- For cockroaches, the recommended rate for maintenance treatments is 0.015% and for clean-out treatments is 0.03%. For control of SEVERE infestations, use 0.06% rate.

- Litter beetles ( such as Darkling, Hide, and Carrion): For control of LIGHT beetle infestations, use 0.03% rate.

- Mosquito: For residual control, use 0.06% rate.

- Fly: Rates for flies may be increased to 0.06% when environmental conditions are severe and/or populations are high. Not approved for use in California at the high rate.

- Crickets, Spiders, Ticks: For clean-out/severe infestations, use 0.06% rate.
