- 1. How does DEADPEST work?
- Spray DEADPEST around your baseboards, door jams, window sills, drains, under cabinets and around openings in the wall where electrical and plumbing pipes are located every 3 months. While most bug sprays only work if you spray it on the bug, DEADPEST gets to the source of your bug problems by infecting the nest.
- 2. What does DEADPEST kill?
- Kills Common Household Pests: Ants, Fleas, Ticks, Spiders, Crickets, Mosquitoes, Gnats, Houseflies, Silverfish and Other Listed Insects.
TO KILL COCKROACHES: Spray on floors along baseboards in the kitchen and baths. Special attention should be paid to areas around refrigerators and food storage areas and suspected entry and hiding places such as doors, windows, vents, pipes, cracks and crevices, etc. To kill flying cockroaches contact as many insects as possible with the spray in addition to thoroughly spraying all parts of the room suspected of harboring cockroaches. Special attention should be paid to cracks, and hidden surfaces under where these pests are suspected of hiding.
TO KILL FLYING INSECTS (mosquitoes, houseflies and gnats): Close space to be treated. Spray above head with a sweeping arm motion. Spray 10 grams (10 seconds) per 1,000 cubic feet of space. Keep treated areas closed for at least 30 minutes after spraying. Thoroughly ventilate treated area before re-entry. Repeat as necessary.
TO KILL SOWBUGS, CENTIPEDES, SILVERFISH, FIREBRATS AND SPIDERS: Contact as many insects as possible with the spray. Also thoroughly spray all parts of the room suspected of harboring these pests. Special attention should be paid to cracks, crevices, hidden surfaces under sinks and behind refrigerators.
TO KILL FLEAS AND BROWN DOG TICKS: Remove and destroy pet’s old bedding. Spray sleeping quarters of pets, around baseboards, window and door frames, wall cracks and local areas of floors. Repeat as necessary.

FOR USE IN BUILDINGS, VANS, SHIPS AND IN TENTS. Close space to be treated. Release 3 feet from any surface, holding dispenser above the head.
