Question

I really want to use this fogger but I am not sure how to turn off the gas supply my town home.

PG&E site mentions that to shut off the gas supply or turn it on we should contact them. Do you know what the process around this is?
Also for shutting electricity, turning off the main switch should be sufficient, right? Please let me know.

It's the pilot light you need to extinguish, not the gas itself. If you need help doing that, please talk to your utility provider. You do not need to shut off your electricity, just electrical appliances that cycle off and on, such as refrigerators. If it's easier for you to shut off the electricity to your home, however, that would work too.

Question

Do clothing, toys and dishes need to be removed before using fogger?

Will the clothes hanging in closets lower the effectiveness of the fogger? Same question with leaving cabinet doors closed with dishes in them. typically if anything was left in the home during it would get a residue, does this still happen? Do toys and stuffed animals need to be removed or is it SAFE to wipe them down with a clorox wipe and wash the stuffies.

You can leave your clothing in closets, leaving closet doors open while fogging. Leaving your kitchen cabinets closed is sufficient to protect dishes. You can remove children's toys before fogging, or washing with soap and water (or a wipe) after treatment will work too.

Question

I fogged the whole house with 8 cans, what are potential side effects to my nervous system

After fogging, I feel like pin pricks and itching all over randomly on my body. I did breath it in while setting the cans off.
I followed a week later with a professional treatment from an exterminator also. I am afraid my nervous system has been compromised.

It's best to avoid breathing it in as much as possible (and we assume you did). Did you leave your home after you set off the foggers? Please give our first aid hotline a call at 1-800-633-2873.

It's not necessary to disconnect your smoke alarms before using this particular fogger. You will get residual control with this product, but it will not leave a sticky film that you can feel after treatment.

We always recommend leaving the home when you're fogging. When you set off the foggers, you should leave the area immediately -- it should not get on your skin or the clothing you're wearing, but it's ok to treat closets and drawers with clothing in them as long as everything is allowed to air out as directed on the label before it is used.

Opening the closet door and dresser drawers during treatment is sufficient, but if you have a major infestation, you might want to remove all clothing items and wash them on the hottest cycle the fabric can withstand or treat them with an aerosol product like Hot Shot Bedbug & Flea Killer aerosol. Your wife and son should certainly be out of the house during treatment; for further advice, please consult your wife's doctor (many doctors have specific recommendations for pesticide use around pregnant women). Remove your bedding so the fog gets to the mattress itself and treat the bedding separately (by washing or spraying). We also recommend using an aerosol spray to get to the tufts and seams on your mattress where bedbugs hide.

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.

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?
