We would not recommend Permethrin SFR 36.8% for a bed bug treatment because they can easily grow resistance. We would definitely recommend something more like Temprid SC because it has two active ingredients that actually work against bed bugs that may have resitance to other products. We would recommend that you check our guide on How to get rid of bed bugs for more detailed information.
Because Permethrin SFR is not labeled for use on clothing or other items that would contact skin, we are not able to give an exact recommendation as to how many washings would deem the fabrics safe for wear, if at all. A small amount of product could be washed, however, something like full strength product would persist longer, and we would not recommend wearing clothing that had significant chemical residue on it.
Permethrin SFR 36.8% is mixed at the rate of 1 2/3 fl. oz. for each gallon of water. Prior to treatment, carpets and furniture should be vacuumed thoroughly and vacuum cleaner bag discarded in an outdoor trash container. Evenly apply a direct spray as a spot treatment to infested areas such as crawlspaces, rugs, carpets, pet beds and other pet resting areas. Do not wet or soak. For crawlspace applications, the applicator must wear a respirator recommended by NIOSH for filtering spray mists and organic vapors. When treating upholstered furniture take care to treat between and under cushions. Pay particular attention to areas which are frequented by pets. Old pet bedding should be replaced with clean, fresh bedding after treatment. To control the source of flea infestations, pets inhabiting the treated premises should be treated with a flea control product registered for application to animals.
Permethrin SFR 36.8% is not labeled to be used for mosquitos in yards and cannot be used in a fogger. Fogging is really only going to kill those that are out in the area at the time of application and may make the area slightly repellent for about a day or so. Talstar P is our most popular product for mosquito control and would be a better option. It is a liquid concentrate that you mix with water and apply using any hand pump sprayer or backpack sprayer. The key is to apply it to all shrubs, trees, and other foliage around the house or patio where you are trying to provide relief. It should be directed not only on top of the leaves and plants, but on the underside of the leaves as well, which is where the mosquitoes like to hang out. It should be applied every 30 days for optimum control.
You can use water and triple rinse sprayers, wands and nozzles after the use of Permethrin SFR.
Permethrin SFR 36.8% is rainfast 24 hours after application.
Permethrin SFR 36.8% will kill scorpions that come in contact with it. However, a more effective product would be Onslaught Fastcap which is specifically designed for scorpions and other insects that are harder to kill. Onslaught FastCap is a unique insecticide that has an encapsulated pyrethroid plus prallethrin for quick knockdown. The encapsulation really helps products to last longer in the heat and sunlight in desert environments better than the Permethrin SFR would.
Permethrin SFR 36.8% is not labeled for scabies so we cannot recommend it be used. Scabies mites live on/in the skin and we do not carry anything to treat humans. Most folks need to visit their doctor to receive the medication needed to get rid of scabies. You may spray your furniture with a product such as Steri-Fab to kill anything on furniture, though treating the home is usually not necessary.
