Bed bugs/mopping/diatomaceous earth
Can or should I wet or dry mop after using your Gentrol IGR? Is it okay to also put down diatomaceous earth once your product has dried?
Once Gentrol IGR is dry, it is safe to mop in your home. We would recommend using Gentrol IGR in conjunction with other products, such as Temprid SC. This will provide a residual and an insect growth regulator for the pests. You will use these every two weeks for bed bugs. We would also recommend treating your mattress and furniture with Bedlam Insecticide. You will spray this product in the seams and tufts where bed bugs reside. Diatomaceous Earth should be used inside the wall voids. This will dry out the bed bugs and prevent them from spreading. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
