You should wash your counter with soap and water, but the dishes are ok as long as your cabinets close completely and none of them were open.

No, that's not necessary. Just open the closet door and air out as well as possible with windows open and fans on elsewhere.

You do not need to remove houseplants before treating. This product won't kill spider mites; for insect control on plants, you should use a product designed specifically for use on them (we make several plant products under the Garden Safe brand line: www.gardensafe.com).

There are no additional precautions recommended when using around a pregnant woman (she should not be the one to set the foggers off, however). Please consult your doctor before using this insecticide, though -- all doctors have different guidelines on pesticide use while pregnant, so we generally refer consumers to their doctors.

Cubic feet is the number you'll want to go by. If you have standard 8 ft ceilings, you have 16,000 cu ft. Each can treats up to 2,000 cu ft, so you will need roughly 8 cans.

Question

If I use this in my bedroom, can I stay in the apartment if I close the bedroom door?

I think I only have bedbugs in my bedroom. I have a 2 year old dog and we don't really have anywhere to go for the 2-4 hours that you are supposed to leave. Would it be ok to shut the door and maybe put a towel underneath to keep the fogger from coming out of the bedroom?

Question

We fogged for bedbugs, but a few days later noticed some live ones. We fogged again and still noticed some live ones. I know the fogger only kills

live ones at the time and does not kill the eggs. Is it safe for us and our 2 cats to fog every 7 - 10 days for maybe 3 weeks to be sure to get any new ones that may hatch after the 1st or 2nd fogging? Also, we are only fogging our upstairs (2nd floor) which we can close off with a door. Is it okay for our cats to remain downstairs on the 1st floor?

Yes, you can fog weekly. You can supplement the fogger by using our aerosol product (Hot Shot Bedbug & Flea Killer) too -- that formula will kill eggs, and you can use it to spot treat problem areas and common hiding places. We always advise removing pets from the home before using foggers. Good luck!

Not only do you need to stay out of the fogging area for at least two hours (plus airing-out time) for your own safety, but you need to leave the treated area sealed for that long to maximize efficacy. Without knowing further details, we can only say that it's possible the fogging did not work.

Please refer to the back of the carton for detailed instructions. In brief, however, you need to cover or remove food-handing utensils or surfaces, turn off fans and air conditioners, remove pets (including fish), close doors and windows and cover waxed wood floors or waxed furniture in the immediate area around the fogger. Fog for two hours, then air out for 30 minutes before reoccupying.

It's difficult to say, but if you have one adult bedbug, you most likely have more. We recommend using an aerosol product like Hot Shot Bedbug & Flea Killer (http://www.hotshot.com/Products-and...) for spot treatment in common hiding places and a fogger treatment with Hot Shot Bedbug & Flea Fogger. Follow up with aerosol treatments or ready-to-use liquid spray (like Hot Shot Bedbug & Flea Home Insect Killer: http://www.hotshot.com/Products-and...) every few days for continued control. It sounds like you have caught the problem early -- good luck!
