    Hi folks,

    All the talc / baby powder I could find in my area are scented ones -- rather heavily, I might add. Will that repell BBs and/or do anything to interfere with Climbup Interceptors' effectiveness?

    Thx in advance

    I would contact Susan McKnight, the manufacturer, here.

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

    Susan replied very quickly. I'm paraphrasing her below:

    Scented talc does not repell bed bugs. And that talc sold at auto shops or sporting goods stores is generally unscented.
