Denise from Irasburg, Vt writes,

What is the best area to spray Essentria when traveling in a hotel to receive the best protection?


According to the Essentria Bedbug repellent product label:

FOR TREATMENT/PROTECTION AROUND BEDS: Spray around base/legs of bed and in cracks/crevices in bed frame. Spray all cracks/crevices around the headboard and footboard of the bed. Spray around the night stand, any wall hangings and along the floorboard adjacent to the bed.

Spray the outer surfaces of your luggage with a light spray (1-2 pumps per side).

Finally, spray around the location where your luggage will be placed. Repeat as necessary.
Most effective results are achieved when used as part of a treatment protocol that includes physical, environmental and other chemical pest control measures.

FOR TREATMENT/PROTECTION ON MATTRESSES: Remove linens. Spot treat areas on mattress that may harbor bed bugs including in and around tufts, folds and seams. Repeat as necessary.
