    Q
    Should I alternate my bed bug treatment with Crossfire?
    I've been using temprid, gentrol, bedlam,cimexa.
    A

    Crossfire is a fantastic and very potent bedbug control product and could certainly be alternated with a spray of Temprid. The biggest thing with bedbugs is to stay on top of treatments every 7-14 days and be meticulous with the applications to get into every nook and crevice you can. If you have a heavy infestation using a product like Crossfire can help drastically drop the numbers and cut your retreatments down due to its unique mode of action.

    Q
    Runoff and dripping with Crossfire Bed Bug Concentrate?
    Why do you suggest that I "DO NOT wet articles to the point of runoff or drip? I really don't care where these substances drip to. The more areas that get touched by this stuff, the better.

    Crossfire Bed Bug Concentrate does not need to be applied to the point of runoff or dripping per the manufacturer so that you do not oversaturate treatment areas as this can prolong the dry time rendering the article treated unusable longer.

    Q
    If you mix Crossfire and Gentrol, the treatment areas become limited to the Gentrol label. Correct?
    A big advantage of Crossfire is the ability to use it in many places that cannot be treated with other insecticides, but when mixed with Gentrol, those places-like mattress surfaces-can no longer be treated. Correct?
    A

    Crossfire should only be mixed with water. You can mix Gentrol IGR at 1 oz per gallon of water for a crack and crevice application after you have applied the Crossfire and it dried.
