    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
    Can 250 Propoxur aerosol be used in electrical outlets?
    A
    We would not recommend using 250 Propoxur Aerosol in electrical outlets. While there are some aerosols that can be used in electrical outlets this use is always listed prominently on the product label. We recommend applying a dust product such as Pyganic dust with a bellow hand duster into electrical outlets where needed.
