Spectre 2 SC
Spectre 2 SC is a non-repellent insecticide formulated with 21.45% of Chlorfenpyr to kill ants, cockroaches, and bed bugs. Because it is odorless and non-repellent, insects can’t sense it to avoid it. Spectre 2 SC has a transfer effect, once an insect comes to contact with it, it spreads and transfers onto other insects through touch or food sharing controlling pests that have not come into contact with it. It provides a long lasting residual control. May be used inside residential structures, commercial areas and institutional areas and more for control of ants, beetles, bed bugs, boxelder bugs, cockroaches and more.

Use Spectre 2 SC to control many nuisance pests, stored product pests and occasional pests that infest structures, including:
- Ants (acrobat, Argentine, carpenter, odorous house, pavement, pharaoh’s, and pyramid).
- Beetles (Asian lady, confused flour, darkling larva [yellow mealworms], saw-toothed grain), bed bugs, box-elder bugs, cockroaches (American, Asian, brown-banded, German, Oriental, smoky brown), European earwigs, house crickets, house flies, paper wasps*, and silverfish (*Spectre 2 SC is not a knockdown agent).
- Non-insect pests such as bark scorpions, centipedes, pill-bugs and spiders (black widow and cellar).
Apply Spectre 2 SC as a spot or crack/crevice treatment where pests are found or can infest (i.e, nesting sites, hiding places, runways or breeding areas). Apply to surfaces beneath cabinets, spaces between equipment or expansion joints, surfaces behind sinks, lockers, water pipes, cabinets, or other pest hiding areas. Where possible, apply Spectre 2 SC directly to ant nests or nesting sites, ant trails or ant-infested wood or structural voids. Foam applications of Spectre 2 SC may be made in voids.
Apply a 0.5% dilution of Spectre 2 SC as a coarse, low-pressure spray. Against a light infestation of ants, or other pests, use the 0.25% dilution of Spectre 2 SC. Use a straw tip or pin tip nozzle for crack and crevice applications. Do not apply Spectre 2 SC at a concentration higher than 0.5%. Do not reapply more often that every four weeks.
