FOR USE IN THE HOME/GARAGE/KENNEL
- Identify treatment areas, especially those where pets frequent, such as in and around pet’s sleeping and resting areas. These are the primary areas where fleas, their eggs, and ticks are found. Before treatment, make a test application to upholstery, drapery, light-colored, delicate fabrics, or wood surfaces in an inconspicuous place.
- Prepare treatment areas. Remove motor vehicles before using in garages. For best results with surface/carpet treatments, vacuum thoroughly before spraying and discard vacuum bag in outside trash. This product may also be used for infested surfaces inside motor vehicles.
- Apply treatment. For flea/tick infestations, a single can treats 2,000 square feet. Hold container upside down 2-3 feet from surface, point actuator towards the surface, and push button. Apply as a spot treatment only to surfaces of furniture, rugs, carpets, drapes, and around all pet resting areas until “slightly damp.” Reapply in 14 days, if necessary. IMPORTANT: Only proper application to carpets, upholstery, drapes, and other fabrics will provide thorough flea/tick elimination. Do not apply directly to pets or animals. Vacate room after treatment and ventilate until surfaces are dry before reoccupying.
- For best results, treat your pets with a registered flea and tick control on-animal product such as Vet Kem® Flea, Tick And Bot Spray or other similar on-animal products to eliminate fleas/ticks on your pets.
For cockroaches: Spray into hiding places, such as cracks, crevices, behind sinks, cabinets, along baseboards and floors, around drains and plumbing, hitting insects with spray whenever possible. For ants: Spray trails, nests, and points of entry. Spray on ants where possible.
