  • Asked by Larry from Jacksonville, Fl
    06/11/2013
    Q
    Can I spray the Martins Permethrin 10% on human bedding (mattresses) and carpet?
    We have been afflicted with the scabies mite and need to get rid of it.
    A
    This product cannot be used on mattresses and can only be used as a light spray on carpets for flea or beetle control indoors. Scabies mites do not infest the home, they are a dermal(skin) problem that must be addressed by a dematologist and the creams or medicines they prescribe. There are not products for scabies mites on mattresses because they do not live on those surfaces. If you are looking for something to spray on the surface as a "just in case" contact kill, you could use Sterifab. All other treatment of scabies will be administered by doctors.

  • Asked by Brielle from Lockhart, Tx

    Q
    When is the optimal time of day to spray my yard with the Permethrin 10?
    I'm treating my yard for ticks, chiggers, misquitos, gnats, ants, waterbugs and such...when is the best time to spray? And at what ratio? I have a 4 gallon backpack sprayer. And should the chickens be cooped up until product is dry?
    A

    It is always advised to make your application either in the early morning or early evening time.  You don't ever want to make an application of insecticide or herbicide during mid day when the sun is at its hottest.  You mix the Martins Permethrin 10% at 1.5 ounces of product per 32 ounces of water to treat 400 linear feet with a 6 inch spray pattern.  So in your case you could mix up to 24 ounces of product into your 4 gallons of water in your backpack sprayer.  Keep any animals away from the treated area until the product has time to dry.  

    1 1/2 oz. in 1 quart of water, treating 400 linear feet with a 6-inch spray band

  • Asked by Dilara from New Jersey
    10/27/2015
    Q
    How should I mix Martins Permethrin 10% and Precor IGR Concentrate?
    Hi, I recently purchased these two items treating fleas indoors. I have two indoor cats. Can I simply put them in the bathroom until the carpeted areas dry? And would my husband and I have to leave the house after the treatment?
    A

    To treat for fleas indoors, you would mix the Martins Permethrin 10% at the rate of 1.33 oz per gallon of water per 1000 sq. ft., and the Precor IGR at the rate of 1 oz per gallon of water. Both concentrates can be mixed together in the same gallon of water.  Pets and people (other than the person making the application) do need to stay out of the area while the products are being applied and until everything is fully dry. It would be a good idea for you to look over our article on How To Get Rid of Fleas if you have a moment. If you need to treat for several months, then we would recommend rotating the Permethrin with another product such as Conquer Insecticide, since cats can be sensitive to the active ingredient Permethrin.
