Insecticide Alternatives for Saga WP
There are four general characteristics of Saga that made it desirable to customers:
All of the Saga WP alternative products mentioned here are considered odorless or (in the case of Permethrin) very low in odor.
If you need a wettable powder to replace Saga WP in your pest management program, Demon WP, Cynoff WP and Tempo WP are good alternatives. All have a general purpose label; Tempo WP is the only one of the three that has a restaurant and commercial food handling label. None of these wettable powder insecticides have a broadcast label. Demon, Cynoff and Tempo are all odorless insecticide concentrate pest control products.
If you need a pesticide that has a good indoor broadcast label for flea, carpet beetle, tick and other such infestations, choose between Suspend SC and Dragnet (the latter often referred to as professional strength Permethrin.) Suspend is an odorless, microencapsulated concentrate; Permethrin is a very low odor emulsifiable concentrate. Suspend SC is the most popular of the two when dealing with mostly indoor pest problems such as ticks, spiders, etc. Permethrin is the product of choice when dealing with indoor/ outdoor problems. Suspend has a restaurant label but Permethrin does not.
Pest control in restaurants and other commercial food handling areas requires a product that is specifically labeled for such uses. The following products are professional concentrates that have such a label: Tempo WP, Tempo SC and Suspend SC. All three of these alternatives are odorless but only Suspend SC has an indoor broadcast label.
