Joel from Sunnyside,ny writes,

can I spray gentrol on all the walls and ceilings in my apartment?

I have small kids and am worried once the Gentrol dries if the residual is bad for them if they touch the walls? Also I have pets, what happens if I spray the floors, will the residual affect my dogs?


You should apply the Gentrol IGR as directed on the product label, directly into cracks and crevices around door frames, window frames, baseboards and under appliances. There is no need to spray the entire wall, ceiling or floor. All children should be out of the area during the application and they can safely return to the treated as soon as it has dried. The dried residual will not have any effect on people or pets even if they touch it. Also, by applying the product directly to cracks, crevices, voids and other inaccessible areas you will be limiting anyone's exposure to the product.
