Charles from Los Angeles writes,

Will Martins Permethrin 10% work for Scabies?

I would like to spray all the furniture, walls, beds etc in multiple rooms. will that be ok? will it ruin the paint or wallpaper? how long after spraying will the room need to remain unused? what is the dilution ratio for that? (I know there is dilution info on the packaging but i need to know how much to purchase....)


Martins Permethrin 10% is not labeled to treat scabies nor is it labeled to be used on furniture or beds and they do not live on those surfaces.  Scabies mites live on/in the skin and we do not carry anything to treat humans. Scabies mites do not infest the home, they are a dermal(skin) problem that must be addressed by a dematologist and the creams or medicines they prescribe.   You may spray your furniture with a product such as Steri-fab to kill anything on furniture though treating the home is usually not necessary.
