Already put down DE under baseboards and bed frame, do I need to vacuum them up before applying Cyzmic CS?

I already treated the room with DE for bed bugs. 1. Do I need to vacuum DE up before applying Cyzmic CS combined with Gentrol IGR? 2. If there is no need to vacuum the DE before Cyzmic CS combined with Gentrol IGR, is the DE still functional in regards to killing bed bugs -- after applying Cyzmic & CS? 3. Is it a big benefit to mix Cyzmic CS with Gentrol IGR, or should I apply them separately?


You do not need to vacuum up the Diatomaceous Earth.  You can just apply the Cyzmic CS as needed, but you should try to direct the Cyzmic CS up on the baseboard and not directly over the DE.   You should apply Gentrol IGR with the Cyzmic CS at the same time.  They are applied in the same places so there is no reason to apply the products separately.
