Is Bedlam Insecticide safe to use around my cat?

We currently don't have bedbugs, but am concerned about getting them from a neighbor who currently does. We want to use something as a preventative treatment, but have a cat and are concerned for her safety. Is this treatment safe for her, even after it dries?

Answer:

When used as directed on the product label, Bedlam is not harmful to cats. Be sure to remove your cat from the area that is being treated and you can let her back into the area after the spray has dried. Bedlam will not prevent bedbugs. You can apply an insecticide dust such as the Alpine dust to cracks and crevices around baseboards and into wall voids to help stop an infestation from moving through adjoining walls. We also recommend using bedbug proof mattress and boxspring encasements on all beds to help eliminate the tufts, folds and seams where bedbugs like to hide and make inspections easier.
