Product Overview

FMC Pyrethrin Fogger previously known as CB PCO Total Release Fogger with Pyrethrins effectively removes all cockroaches, fleas, ticks, houseflies, mosquitoes, moths, wasps, crickets, or silverfish within the confines of the fumigated area. This product contains natural based pyrethrins making it ideal for use in sensitive areas such as homes, schools and hospitals. Pyrethrins are naturally derived pesticides (derived from the Chrysanthemum flower) that work by attacking the central nervous systems of bothersome pests on contact, causing death.

Foggers are oil based and can leave behind an oily residue in some instances.

To Use Pyrethrin Fogger:

Shake Well Before Use. Cover exposed foods, dishes and food handling equipment. Open cabinets and doors to area to be treated. Shut off fans and air conditioners. Put out all flames and pilot lights. Close doors and windows. Point valve opening away from face and eyes when releasing.

  • DO NOT use more than one fogger per room.
  • DO NOT use in small enclosed spaces such as closets, cabinets or under counters or tables.
  • DO NOT use in a room 5 ft. x 5 ft. or smaller; instead, allow fog to enter from other rooms.
  • Turn off ALL ignition sources such as pilot lights (shut off gas valves), other open flames or running electrical appliances that cycle off and on (i.e. refrigerators, thermostats, etc.). Call your gas utility or management company if you need assistance with your pilot lights.
  • Use one 5 oz. unit for 5,000 cubic feet of unobstructed space.
  • Do not remain in the area during treatment, and ventilate thoroughly before reentry.



To lock valve in open position for automatic discharge, press valve button all the way down, hooking the catch. Then place fogger on stand or table in the center of the room with valve locked open, placing several layers of newspaper or pad under fogger. Leave building at once and keep building closed for two hours before airing out. Open all doors and windows and allow to air for one-half hour. Repeat spraying in two weeks or when necessary.

To Kill Ticks and Fleas:

Destroy pet's old bedding and replace. Use this product as above. Pets should be treated with a registered tick and flea control product prior to reentry. Repeat as necessary to bring infestation under control.

Do not apply while food processing is underway:

Cover or remove all food processing surfaces. Thoroughly wash all food processing surfaces before reuse. After spraying in bakeries, meat packing plants, food processing plants, etc., all benches, shelving, equipment, etc. where exposed food will be handled must be washed with an effective cleaning compound followed by a potable water rinse prior to use.

In hospitals:

Remove patients prior to treatment. Ventilate area for two hours prior to returning patients.

    CB PCO Fogger with Pyrethrins

    By Robert on 03/22/2011

    Absolutely USELESS!! Frankly, I'm not sure why but there are more roaches now than before the "bombs" were set off. This building is less than 600 sq. ft. I set one in the front half, and one in the rear half. I found a total of 5 dead roaches on the floor and kitchen counter. 6 days later, they are still everywhere, LIVE!! I am giving this one star. Unfortunately, you haven't provided for a NEGATIVE rating. I would NOT recommend this to my ex-wife!!!

    Expert ResponseExpert response:
    You have to realize that a fogger only goes straight up into the air out of the can, and then falls straight down.  It will only kill roaches that are out in the open.  Foggers do not make it into the wall voids where the roaches hide, or under or inside appliances.  You should apply roach bait and other residual products like what is in our roach control kits.

    Worked on Yellow Jackets

    By Bob on 10/23/2010

    I tapped this fogger to the end of a broom stick, popped the tab, and stuck it right at the entrance to the yellow jacket nest. Sprayed for about 2-3 minutes straight. Doesn't really knock them out of the air, but it did work. Yellow Jackets died over the next 2 weeks straight. Now totally gone.

Use of fogger in attic?

Can CB PCO Fogger with Pyrethrins be used in attics and is it effective in killing silver fish when using batt and roll insulation?

You can use the fogger in the attic to kill exposed insects. The fogger cannot penetrate into cracks, crevices or under the insulation. We recommend you use the Dekko Silverfish Paks in the attic to help get rid of the hidden silverfish.

Is there a bug bomb for a black widow infestations?
CB PCO Fogger with Pyrethrins will kill spiders, but only the spiders that are exposed at the time the fogger is released. We recommend using Cyper WP for spider control. Cypermethrin, the active ingredient in Cyper WP, is known to be one of the most effective active ingredients for spiders and other hard to kill insects. Spray directly into cracks and crevices, under appliances, around door frames and window frames and in places where utilities (cables, pipes, wires) enter into the structure. We have recently added a spider control kit to our website that includes Cyper WP, Webout and glue boards. Using Webout eliminator will help discourage spiders from forming webs on the surfaces that have been sprayed and the glue boards will help trap wandering spiders and help monitor problem areas.

will the CB PCCO fogger kill bird mites
: CB PCO Fogger with Pyrethrins is not labeled to treat mites. It is important to be absolutely sure you are actually dealing with bird mites. Have the suspected bird mite identified by a reputable source, such as your local cooperative extension office or a reputable pest control operator. Treatments will vary for different pests. Treatment for say bedbugs is much different than the treatment for bird mites.  If you do indeed have bird mites, you must first find the source of the infestation, usually a bird nest or a dead bird on or in the home. Removal of the infested nest or bird and a thorough cleanup is necessary. For treatment in the home, we recommend you frequently vacuum all carpet and upholstery and dispose of the bag or vacuum contents in a sealed bag outdoors. Spray Sterifab on couches, chairs and other upholstered furniture where you may spend time resting. Use MotherEarth Dust in all cracks and crevices around the perimeter of the room. Apply a thin coat of MotherEarth dust to rugs and carpets. Rake (not sweep) nap back and forth, causing dust to enter rug or carpet. Let product sit overnight. Repeat application as necessary and vacuum every 3 - 4 days for effective control. MotherEarth dust does not have a fast knockdown, it can take several days for insects to die after they contact the dust. Onslaught can be used for a faster knockdown. Thoroughly apply as a fine particle broadcast spray using a hand pump sprayer to infested rugs and carpets and other cracks and crevices around the perimeter of each room. Put all clothes through the dryer on high heat to help kill mites and their eggs.We have had many customers use the above recommendations with great success. Most customers report that it can take several months to get rid of all of the mites. Finding and removing the source of the infestation is very important and is the key to getting rid of the mites for good.

Will this fogger kill moths?

Moths have been feasting on my favorite wool sweaters, hanging in my closet


The CB Pco Fogger will kill adult moths that are exposed at the time of the fogging but the fog will not be able to penetrate into the folds of the clothing to kill the larva that is actually causing the damage to your sweaters (the adult moths do not feed, the moth larva is what is causing damage to your sweaters. Please read our article How to get Rid of Clothes Moths to learn how to get rid of this damaging pest.
