Can I spray Gentrol on my box spring cover and then cover it with a bed bug proof box spring protector?

Also, can I spray it underneath my sofa inside the frame? I will be mixing it with Suspend SC.

Answer:

The Gentrol IGR supplemental label states "To treat bedbugs, apply to harborage points mentioned in general treatments; in addition, under beds, bottom side of box springs (do not treat linens and mattresses), under and behind night stands, to points where carpet and wall meet, cracks in cove base, molding, and other areas where bedbugs harborage." Treating the underside of the sofa should be just fine, just be sure not to get any spray on the areas where people will contact it. For more sensitive areas you can use Bedlam and Steri-Fab.
