If the heating and cooling system is shared throughout the house, you should follow the directions on the label: extinguish the pilot light, close vents, cover food, etc. You should also advise people and pets to leave while you're fogging. If you live in an apartment that is independently heated and cooled and not connected by vents to any other apartment, you can treat independently according to the label. Either way, it might be beneficial to you if the entire house is treated so you're not reinfested.

Question

Fogger Precautions

I just noticed this past week that I have live bedbugs... my son and I first got bites last week and last night I found several live bugs.
My concern is how *clean* do I need to prepare my house? I have vacuumed and steamcleaned all carpets, and my drapes and comforters are all at the cleaners awaiting the hot water sanitation cycle. Pillows have been washed and bleached on the hot water cycle, and their covers replaced with bedbug approved covers- for now they're in trashbags awaiting the clearance that I can claim my bed back. I spot treated the perimeters of each of the rooms and bed frames... but what else needs to be done? The papers on my desk and bulletin boards, or even my books, do they need to be protected? I've read that counters and wooden furniture should be covered too... is this recommended if wood is untreated? what if the wood has been treated? Is there a strategy as to starting upstairs rather than down; or should I spot treat prior to fogging? I have read the directions already, but it's the specifics to ensure the more intimate details are tended to that I'm concerned with.

I am thoroughly disgusted already, and want to be sure this fogging works to my advantage so please be as specific as possible.

Thank you for your time and assistance with all this.

You're being very thorough, which is essential in treating for bedbugs. Beyond what you have listed here, have you treated your mattresses and box springs themselves? You can use an aerosol product, like Hot Shot Bedbug & Flea Killer (http://www.hotshot.com/Products-and...) or our Mattress & Luggage Treatment Kit (http://www.hotshot.com/Products-and...). Spot treat first, then fog. You don't need to protect books or papers from the fog, but you should cover any wood or wood furniture that's right near the fogger itself (to protect it from the fogger's propellant). Fog the whole house at the same time, and for best results, spot treat and fog again a week later. Good luck!

Yes, it is flammable. You should extinguish your pilot light or other sources of open flame before using (read the label completely for other use precautions). We do make a fogger that can be used without extinguishing your pilot light: Hot Shot No-Mess Fogger (http://www.hotshot.com/Products-and...). It will not control bedbugs, however.

I fogged earlier today, and followed the directions to put newspapers over my wood floors under and around
the cans. Where the floor was not covered, further away from the cans, I can see a waxy, sticky residue film on the floor. Is this residue toxic? Can I walk on it with my bare feet?

How does it inhibit flea reinfestation?

Yes, you should re-treat before you notice an infestation again. You will probably want to treat the yard as well, and any other place outdoors where your cat spends time. It might not be a bad idea to consider a longer-term flea solution for your cat.

The fogger will only actively spray for several minutes, but two minutes is a little short. It's possible that the propellant didn't work as well because you forgot to shake. If you're not seeing the results you're expecting, we advise re-treating.
