Applications can be made to walls, floors, ceilings, in and around cupboards, between, behind and beneath equipment, appliances, around floor drains, window and door frames, and on the underside of shelves, drawers and in similar areas. Applications may be made to floor surfaces along walls and around air ducts, however, do not treat entire area of floor or floor coverings. All food processing surfaces and utensils should be covered or thoroughly washed following treatment. Cover exposed foodstuffs or remove from area being treated. Re-application can be made at 10-day intervals, if necessary. Do not apply where electrical short circuits could occur. Use a dust or dry bait in these areas. It is recommended to wear safety glasses, goggles or face shield and a respirator when making a general surface treatment to overhead areas.
