Bedbugs: spray mattresses, particularly around tufts and seams. Take beds apart and spray into all joints. Treat baseboards, moldings and floors. After mattress is dry, cover with mattress cover and sheet. Do not use mattress without a cover. Retreat if infestation occurs, but not more than once every two weeks.
