Hold about 12” from the surface being sprayed. Spray around baseboards, doors, window sills and plumbing and other places where insects may enter. Spray into inaccessible areas behind and beneath sinks, stoves, cabinets, refrigerators, damp areas, and in and around waste containers. Avoid excessive wetting of asphalt, tile, rubber and plastic. Do not treat open floor areas, furniture, beds or bedding. Clean any exposed area where food or people may contact.

Crack & Crevice® Treatment: Use 250 Propoxur with the supplied actuator and injection tubes. Inject 250 Propoxur into cracks and crevices or void spaces where insects may be harboring, living and breeding. Place injector tip into cracks, crevices, holes and other small openings where insects may enter. Spray into inaccessible areas behind and beneath sinks, stoves, cabinets, refrigerators, damp areas and in and around waste containers.

Spray directly on insects in these locations where possible. Repeat as necessary. Do not treat entire area of floor or floor covering.

Crawling Pests (Cockroaches, Waterbugs, Spiders, Brown Dog Ticks, Earwigs, Crickets, Sowbugs, Millipedes, and Centipedes): Apply as a spot treatment or Crack & Crevice treatment.

    Propoxur - Answer to my bedbug problem - POOF GONE!!

    By Rekha on 09/30/2010

    Verified Purchase

    I can't begin to tell you my nightmare with bedbugs. I read about Propoxur in a news article. I googled it and I bought two cans. Of course, I had to have Terminix do the major portion of the job due to heavy infestation, but Propoxur has kept them out!

    250 Propoxur Killer Bug Spray

    By Susan on 10/28/2010

    Verified Purchase

    I had bed bugs and had tried a couple of the Home Depot products but they didn't really work that good. Plus I spent a lot more money at Home Depot to still have bugs. The Propoxur seems to really do the job. I only used it twice. I bought a total of 4 cans and still have 2 of them left just in case I missed any hiding places. It has a kill life of about 4 weeks. I'm very happy with it and the Do My Own Pest Control was very professional, fast shipping, always had what I wanted in stock, and good prices.

    Bed bug spray

    By Joy on 10/05/2010

    Verified Purchase

    I am saving these just in case the bed bugs end up this way. We travel some and I am so afraid of bringing them home. It is not good to have these critters at home.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Does 250 Propoxur Aerosol kill bed bugs?
A

Recent studies are showing that propoxur is very effective on bed bug populations, with 100% mortality rate in some cases. However, 250 Propoxur Aerosol is currently not labeled for the treatment of bed bugs, so we cannot make a comment either way how effective it is.  The product may be officially labeled for use against bed bugs at some point in the future.

Q
How long do you wait to see after using this 250 Propoxur, that your problem is gone?

I am moving in two months, and I'm trying to salvage my living room furniture and bed frame. Would I just treat the entire house with this spray or does this come in the forms of fogger/bombs?

A
We assume you are treating for bedbugs. There is no exact time we can tell you when the bedbugs should be gone. You should treat every 7-10 days until you do not see any activity or receive any bites for 30 days. Most folks have to treat between 3-5 times. The key to getting rid of bedbugs quickly is to be very thorough. Treat EVERY crack, crevice, void and item that may be infested. Foggers and bombs are not effective for bedbug control because they do not penetrate into cracks and crevices where these pests actually harbor.

Q
What is the residual life span of 250 Propoxur?

I want to know how many days, weeks, months etc. does 250 Propoxur continue to kill insects. How often to I need to respray?

A
Propoxur 250 can last for about 4 weeks and can be reapplied as often as every 7-10 days.
