    Hey, guys. Me again.

    I was researching the pesticide my PCO plans to use next week: Suspend SC. I found a mention that it's not available in NY for some reason, and two warnings (one I googled, one here) about severe reactions to it. It is labeled safe for use even on mattresses and box springs...

    What are your thoughts?

    Suspend is Deltamethrin I think its the same as K Othrine / Crackdown that we have in the UK. It would not be my first choice but I have used it succsessfully in the past. As long as its used correctly I'm sure you will be fine, if you look hard enough you can find a scare story about just about anything.

    Good to know, BBMan. I am praying it works on my BBs, and doesn't harm me, the hubby, or the pup.

    So far, for a "minor" infestation, these sure are tenacious monsters.

    My PCO used Suspend SC. Didn't work very well. After a year of 1/month spraying we still had bugs - a lot fewer, but it didn't deliver the knockout punch. Switched to Phantom, and the BBs disappeared.

    May be just Cincinnati though - I read a report that Suspend only has like a 33% kill rate vs the Cinci strain.

    It was not sprayed on the beds.
