Can I use Phantom after using Suspend for bed bug treatment?

Will the Suspend repel them before they can get to the Phantom or shouldn't it kill them before repelling? Will spraying Suspend a few times then switching to Phantom cause some bad pesticide mixing effect?


You can use Phantom and Suspend in the same areas, but it would not be beneficial in any way. Phantom is non-repellent so bedbugs cannot avoid the treated areas, and Phantom will kill bedbugs that cross over the treated area within 3 days. There has been no known resistance to Phantom because it is not in the same family of insecticides as Suspend. If you have used Suspend, you should wait at least two weeks before applying Phantom to avoid ruining the non-repellent properties of the product.
