Prior to treating carpets, vacuum thoroughly and discard vacuum bag in outside trash. Next, apply insecticides, insect growth regulators (IGRs), botanical pesticides or a tank mix to the surface of carpets with a light, uniform spray until treated areas are slightly damp. Be sure not to oversaturate carpet by spraying until soaked. Apply a dust insecticide such as EcoPCO® D-X Dust Insecticide around the edges of carpets. If necessary, most treatments can be repeated after 14 days.
