Bonide Household Room Fogger, as well as most other foggers on the market, are not what you would want to use to try and control a carpet beetle problem. Foggers only kill the pests that are out in the open when the fogger goes off and does not give any continuous control after it has finished and you have aired out the room. There is no residual that you would be washing off of any surface. Most foggers also do not affect the eggs as they are protected from the insecticide until they hatch out. Vacuuming is definitely a step you want to continue doing on a regular basis. The biggest key with carpet beetles is cleaning everything and every crevice the larvae or beetles could be hiding in, and then using a residual insecticide and an IGR to try and kill any remaining and stop the reproductive cycle. You can review the products and steps to locating and eliminating carpet beetles by reading our article for their control.
Carpet Beetle Control
Bonide Household Room Fogger states on the product label: Exposed food should be covered or removed. All food preparation surfaces and utensils should be covered during treatment or thoroughly washed before use.
Bonide Household Room Fogger could possibly kill scorpions but only if they are out in the open while you are using. There is no residual that can continue to kill once dry. Since scorpions like to hide it is unlikely any "bomb" or fogger would work well and none of them are labeled for this use. Instead we recommend the products that come in our scorpion control kit: Scorpion Control Kit.
It does not state on the product label of the Bonide Household Room Fogger that you would need to turn your appliances off during application. Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance.
The Bonide Household Room Fogger is not recommended for bed bug control. When foggers are released they simply spray up into the air and then settle down onto surfaces. They do not penetrate into the cracks and crevices where bedbugs actually hide. Using a fogger for bedbugs could also irritate the bedbugs and force them deeper into cracks and crevices or into wall voids, making effective treatments much more difficult or even impossible. Most foggers on the market are not recommended for bedbugs for these reasons. In order to treat a bed bug infestation thoroughly, you must use multiple products and follow the appropriate guidelines for treating individual items such as clothes, shoes, electronics, etc. We recommend using one of our bed bug control kits, which will come with all of the products you need to do an effective bed bug treatment.
Bonide Household Room Fogger can kill all flying and crawling insects in the home that are out in the open at the time you set it off.
Bonide Household Room Fogger will kill Daddy Long legs that are present during the application. We would recommend using Bifen IT for treating indoors and outdoors. Bifen IT is a great general all purpose insecticide that can be used as a perimter treatment on the outside of home (windows, doors, foundation, yard, trees, bushes) and inside as a crack and crevice spray. You will get a 30 day residual on the outside of the home and 90 residual on the inside of home.
Bonide Household Room Fogger is not labeled to be applied in a hen house. Tengard SFR would be a great choice for this type of application because it can be used on poultry and in poultry houses and offers a long lasting residual. Please refer to the product label to ensure that the insect that you are targeting is listed and for mixing and application instructions.
The Bonide Household Room Fogger will eradicate any insects including fleas that are out in the open at the time of application. This is not recommended to be the only product you use for fleas. We recommend that you treat the surfaces with products lin our Indoor Kit for fleas inside when pets, children and other adults are not present until dry/ventilated. For more information on treating for fleas, please take a few moments to review our treatment article/videos on How to Get Rid of Fleas for a successful eradication program.
