well before using: Remove protective cap, hold container upright with
nozzle away from you. Depress valve and spray from a distance of 8-10
inches (12-15 inches for baseboards, moldings and floors). Test product
on an inconspicuous area before applying to check for possible staining
or discoloration. Inspect again after drying. Spray to the point of
dampness but not run-off. Over application may cause damage. Will not
stain surfaces or fabrics where water alone causes no damage. To kill
lice and louse eggs: Spray entire area to be treated. Spray each square
foot for three seconds. Allow all sprayed articles to dry thoroughly
before use. Spray only those parts of bedding, including mattresses and
furniture that cannot be either laundered or dry cleaned. Do not use on
sheets or pillowcases. 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. To kill
house dust mites (dermatophagoides spp.): Rid® home lice, bedbug &
dust mite spray helps control house dust mites that may cause asthma,
hay fever, rhinitis, watery eyes and sneezing. One treatment lasts for
up to 8 weeks. On upholstered furniture, carpets and curtains – test
fabric in an inconspicuous area to insure dyes will not bleed. Hold
container upright with nozzle away from you. Depress valve and spray
from a distance of 8 to 10 inches. Spray all fabric surfaces until damp.
Do not use on delicate fabrics. Allow furniture to dry thoroughly
before using. On carpets – spray over entire carpet until damp. Hold the
nozzle approximately 12 to 18 inches from the carpet surface and spray
in a sweeping motion. Use an overlapping pattern to insure total
coverage. After application, brush the surface of the carpet with a
broom or brush to insure deep penetration. Allow carpet to dry
thoroughly before reentering the treated area. Drying time can be
accelerated by using a fan. On mattresses – spray the top, bottom and
sides of mattresses until damp, paying particular attention to tufts and
seams. Allow to dry thoroughly before using. After mattress is dry,
cover with mattress cover and sheet. Do not use mattress without a
cover. Vacuum entire area once dry. Since vacuuming stirs dust up in the
air those with allergies should have another person vacuum or should
wear a dust mask and use vacuum with a high efficiency particulate
(HEPA) filter. Storage and disposal: Pesticide storage: store in a cool,
dry area away from children and pets and away from heat, sparks and
open flame. Do not transport or store below 32 degrees F (0 degrees C).
Pesticide disposal and container handling: Do not puncture or
incinerate. If empty: place in trash or offer for recycling if
available. If partly tilled expertly titled: call your local solid waste
agency for disposal instructions. This container may be recycled in
aerosol recycling centers. At present, there are only a few such centers

read warnings before use. Adult and children 2 years and over: inspect.
Check each household member with a magnifying glass in bright light for
lice/nits (eggs). Look for tiny nits near scalp, beginning at back of
neck and behind ears. Examine small sections of hair at a time. Unlike
dandruff which moves when touched, nits stick to the hair. If either
lice or nits are found, treat with this product. Treat: Apply thoroughly
to dry hair or other affected area. For head lice, first apply behind
ears and to back of neck. Allow product to remain for 10 minutes, but no
longer. Use warm water to form a lather, shampoo, then thoroughly
rinse. For head lice, towel dry hair and comb out tangles. Remove lice
and their eggs (nits): Use a fine-tooth or special lice/nit comb. Remove
any remaining nits by hand (using a throw-away glove). Hair should
remain slightly damp while removing nits. If hair dries during combing,
dampen slightly with water. For head lice, part hair into sections. Do
one section at a time starting on top of head. Longer hair may take 1 to
2 hours. Lift a 1- to 2-inch wide strand of hair. Place comb as dose to
scalp as possible and comb with a firm, even motion away from scalp.
Pin back each strand of hair after combing. Clean comb often. Wipe nits
away with tissue and discard in a plastic bag. Seal bag and discard to
prevent lice from coming back. After combing, thoroughly recheck for
lice/nits. Repeat combing if necessary. Check daily for any lice/nits
that you missed. A second treatment must be done in 7 to 10 days to kill
any newly hatched lice. If infestation continues, see a doctor for
other treatments. Children under 2 years: ask a doctor. Other
information: Keep carton for important product information. See consumer
information insert for additional information. Avoid excessive heat.
