Ticks are shaping up to be a major problem this year. Lambda 9.7 CS is designed to knock down ticks — including species that transmit Lyme disease — as well as a variety of other insects. The encapsulated insecticide will not break down in heat and ultraviolet light (UV) exposure, resulting in a longer residual control and reduced callbacks. To control nuisance ticks, apply to kennels, yards, runs and other areas where pets may frequent. With a coarse fan spray, treat vegetation, brush, branches, rock walls, and other areas near habitation where ticks may harbor or frequent. Lambda 9.7 CS can be applied as a spot, crack-and-crevice, foam and ultra-low volume (ULV) treatment, and the formulation stays in suspension with no clogging or clumping, the company says.
