Question

How long does the pesticide chemical stay on surfaces and remains active

I am wondering how long the active chemical for the pesticide remains on surfaces that are used in the living spaces such as sofas and beds. I heard that you did not have to wash the bedding that was exposed but does that mean the chemical somehow dissipates so that is does not contribute to additive pesticides from subsequent re-application of the product. I am also wondering if we apply this product once then does this mean that we are sitting on a sofa that will permanently have active pesticide ingredient on it.

The fogger is a contact insecticide with no residual effects. Once you have treated and aired out as directed on the label, it's not necessary to clean or sanitize further.

No, there is no need to clean carpets, furniture or other surfaces after fogging (although doing so will not impede the peformance of the product). Items that your kids might put in their mouths, such as toys, should be removed before fogging.

If you fog and ventilate as directed on the packaging, you can reuse the treated area (and items in the treated area) as you would normally. If you would feel more comfortable, you could always cover your mattress and keep your drawers closed during treatment if those aren't problem areas. Washing your bedding after treatment won't affect the performance of the product, either.

Question

Will this product kill Brown Recluse and Black Widows?

I have a detached garage that we are about to demolish. It is infested with spiders of all sorts; namely black widows and brown recluse. Before we get started with tearing it down, we want to get rid of as many spiders as possible, in hopes that they don't find home in our home! Will it work to kill them? It is approximately 200 sq feet, how many cans should I use?

You might need to re-fog -- the vapors from the fogger might not have stayed concentrated enough in your treatment area. If you continue to see bugs, fog again.

Most likely. But for safety's sake, we recommend leaving the home -- it's only for a couple of hours, and you can be sure that no one in your family will be exposed to any of the fog.
