Q&A Home

F.kazmi from Phoenix Az writes,

is this safe to put in new home construction when there is only frame?

My home is being constructed currently and it's in its frame phase where there is just lumber ? Can we directly put it or spray it all over lumber so no bugs get into interior walls and ceiling? I was thinking about buying this so no scropions can climb our walls and get into interior before they put up all the drywall for home construction. Please let me know. Thanks.


For longevity purposes, we would recommend using an insecticide dust inside the wall voids before they enclose the wood frame. Using Cimexa Dust can last up to 10 years when left undisturbed. You can use this product as a dust or a liquid:

Liquid Application: This product can also be used as a spray. Mix 1 lb. of product with 1 gallon of clean water. Apply approx. 1 qt of solution per 250 sq ft. of area to be treated. The product will be left behind after the water evaporates.

Apply at a rate of 2 ounces per 100 square feet. In attics and crawlspaces, apply at a rate of 1 lb per 1000 square feet. Use a handheld bellows, bulb or puffer bottle type duster to apply a light, visible film. A power duster may also be used.
