Children, pets and pregnant females should be kept out of the area where Transport Mikron Insecticide is being sprayed. It is safe for them to return to the area once the product has dried completely. This generally takes 2-3 hours.
We cannot comment on the treatment performed by a professional exterminator. Transport Mikron will last up to 90 days indoors. If you are treating for bedbugs, Transport Mikron should not be the sole product applied for treatment.

Transport Mikron Insecticide can provide up to a 90-day residual inside and would only be applied that often. If you are treating for bedbugs, Transport Mikron (even with Gentrol) should not be the sole that you use for treatment. Please review our bedbug treatment guide and videos for additional treatment information by clicking the link here. In general treatments for bed bugs are done every 2 weeks with some products until you can go 30 days without being bitten or seeing evidence.
Transport Mikron Insecticide is not specifically labeled for birds mites; it is only labeled for clover mites and spider mites. It is not a contact kill but does provide a residual after application.
For infested mattresses, remove linens and wash before reuse. Apply Transport Mikron Insecticide to tufts, seams, folds, and edges until moist. Allow to dry before remaking bed.
No, we do not recommend to spray Transport Mikron over the areas that have been sprayed with Temprid SC. Both products contain active ingredients that are from the synthetic pyrethroid class of insecticides. Both insecticides offer a second active ingredient which can offer a knockdown to pests that may be resistant to synthetic pyrethroids, so using both products at the same time would be overkill and counter-effective. If you want to use both these products, then it would be better to use them in rotation rather than at the same time.
How long it takes the insects such as bedbugs or roaches to die after they come into contact with a treated area of Transport Mikron Insecticide will depend on a number of factors. It will depend on the maturity of the insect as well as how long they stayed on the treated area, how long it has been since the area was treated and the concentration that was used to treat the area. Typically it can take anywhere from a couple of hours to a day or so for them to die.
Transport Mikron Insecticide should not be wiped up after application. Doing this would remove the product and will and defeat the purpose of having appliled it.
