Do not switch on electrical/gas appliances or smokebefore airing is completed.For the most effective treatment, use in September and January or at intervals of nine months.One can covers approximately two average rooms. Four cans will be needed for the average sized home, and six cans or more will be needed for large and high-set homes. For mosteffective results the entire house should be treated. Repeat treatment after nine months orwhen fleas start re-emerging. For best results it is recommended that all pets be treated with asuitable insecticide before entering treated premises. Pets should not be excluded from the home after using the Bomb as hatching or dying fleas will attack people instead.Concrete surfaces will render both permethrin and methoprene inactive. Regular sweeping and washing of these surfaces to control fleas is recommended.Since the permethrin (adulticide) does not spread over as large an area as the methoprene(insect growth regulator), some adults and emerging adults may exist for some weeks aftertreatment. Further treatment with an adulticide spray such as Fleatrol Plus Insecticidal Spray is recommended for the quickest and most effective treatment.
