According to the Precor Plus Fogger product label, you must "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.
You must turn off any pilot lights and any appliances that cycle on and off in the home before using Precor Plus Fogger with IGR in the needed areas. You can choose to just turn the breaker off for the whole house as well.
Fogging should not be your only treatment for fleas indoors. When foggers are released they simply go straight up into the air and then straight down onto flat surfaces. Foggers do not penetrate into cracks and crevices where fleas develop. (They do help get rid of active adults that are exposed at the time of the treatment). Thoroughly vacuum every crack, crevice and surface in your home to get rid of flea eggs and larva and also to stimulate the pupa to emerge as adult fleas and contact any product you have put down. Pay special attention to any area where your pets spend a lot of time. Fleas usually do not develop out in the middle of bare floors, they develop in cracks, crevices, voids and in furniture and pet beds. We recommend Ultracide for these areas; Ultracide has an insecticide to eliminate biting adults and an IGR that will disrupt the growth of developing fleas. You must also have pets treated with a residual flea product to help eliminate the adult fleas that never leave the animals coat.
There would really be no reason to use both the Precor Plus Foggers and the Precor IGR concentrate as the foggers contain the IGR already and will last up to 7 months. It is important to vacuum every day or at least every other day starting 24 hours after application. Keep in mind that the foggers will only kill those fleas out in the open at the time you use it. For best results, we would recommend using an insecticide concentrate like Conquer Insecticide along with the Precor IGR Concentrate and apply every 2 weeks as long as you need to treat. Conquer will leave a residual that will continue to kill fleas that contact a treated surface.

After setting off the Precor Plus Fogger , you should leave the house for 2 hours and then upon returning, open doors and windows and let the house air out for 1 hour. The only clean up you need to worry about would be food handling surfaces like your countertops. You should wipe them down with soap and water if you fogged in the kitchen. Please take a look at our Flea Guide for tips on how to treat and prevent fleas.
