    PCO came and sprayed Propoxur (Baygon). I hear it is powerful stuff. How long does it last for residually?

    Thanks!

    Oh, and my boyfriend (who I do not live with) wants to get a kitten- is it safe if I may have propoxur residue on my being?

    If I clean up with a wet rag, might it remove the propoxur? What about a dry one?

    Is it repellant at all? Would an OTC permetherin spray in areas he missed be contrainticated?

    If a professional has applied chemicals, do NOT do anything without checking with them. You don't want to undo everything the professional did and they would much rather have you call them with a question than come back out to respray.

    I am not a pro but I have seen that said enough times around here. Can't advise you on the kitten. I only know my own chemicals are safe for my cat after drying. Yours may be different.

    Not a pro here. Call me Jon Snow...... for I know nothing, except what I've experienced.

    You'd have to ask the PCO.
    Curious where you are?

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Ontario- he didn't know what Permetherin was, was going to get mouae glue traps for the bugs, didn't know what interceptors were, so I'm not too hopeful he is much more than a "henchman"... Also doesn't have email. Hence asking here. But I'll try and ask.

    Did he leave a slip after treatment stating exactly what was applied and where? There seem to be multiple products which are Baygon (Propoxur).

    Here's one: http://gardexinc.com/labels/899911565_Gardex_Baygon_1percent.pdf

    That label does not specify bed bugs as a target pest. It may be they used a different product as there seemed to be other concentrations.

    You want to look at the slip for the exact product and concentration. Then search online for a label.

    There was no slip left, and he does not have email. He did say he got it from Gardex, though.

    It sounds like they may have used a product not labeled for bed bugs, so it's not going to be possible to determine from the label how long it will last. You should call and ask the PCO as misery said about this and about bringing in a new kitten.
