Bed Bugs Not Listed On The Label

Other insecticide products are sometimes used by the pest control industry although the labels do not mention bed bugs. However, technicians can apply the products only to sites that are listed on the label for other pests such as cockroaches or ants. (Note: New York state does not permit this substitution.) Products used this way include PT 250 ® Propoxur, and CB Invader® Propoxur.
