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


Applying a continual band of insecticide around a building foundation and around windows, doors, service line entrances, eaves, vents, and other areas can greatly reduce the potential for entry by crawling pests. To facilitate application, remove debris and leaf litter from next to the foundation, cut back vegetation and branches that touch the foundation, and move or rake back rocks, deep mulch, or other potential pest harborage next to the foundation. Apply the band up to 10 ft. wide around the structure (or according to state regulations governing commercial pest control) and upwards along the foundation to 3 ft. and around windows, doors, and roof overhangs. Apply as a coarse spray to thoroughly and uniformly wet the foundation and/or band area so that the insecticide will reach the soil or thatch level where pests may be active.

Amount of concentrate is dependent upon pest species (see pest table), infestation levels, and service interval desired.

NOTE: Do not use water base sprays of Demand CS Insecticide in conduits, motor housings, junction boxes, switch boxes, or other electrical equipment because of possible shock hazard. For best results, thoroughly wash out sprayer and screen with water and detergent before using Demand CS Insecticide. Demand CS Insecticide has not stained or caused damage to painted or varnished surfaces, plastics, fabrics, or other surfaces where water applied alone causes no damage. However, treat a small area and allow to dry to determine whether staining will occur.
