Answer: 
You need to wash your sheets on high heat before sleeping on them. You can treat your mattress with this product, but it's only intended for spraying seams and tufts. Let the mattress dry and air out thoroughly before sleeping on it.

Wait until it is dried...I, personally, also put a sheet/blanket on the couch after the spray dries...but that's just my preference.

Does it kill only if sprayed direct on a bug or does it continue to kill after it dries? Also, is it safe for pets? For example, if sprayed on a rug and the dog lays on it or licks the carpet? (after it dries)

Answer: 
The product says to re use after 4 weeks if needed? I just used a few days ago and my 2 dogs had no reactions. I made sure they were out of the house, as well as my asthmatic boyfriend while I sprayed. It did still have a bit of a smell after it dried but for the amount of bedbugs I think we had it worked wonders. I highly recommend.

Answer: 
This product controls listed insects on contact and also continues to kill residually for up to a month. It's fine to use if you have pets; just remove pets from the treatment area while you're spraying and until the spray is dry. After treated surfaces are dry, it's fine for pets to use the area as usual.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 79 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked wonders!! Excellent product This is the second time around having to try and get rid of bed bugs. The first time they were just in our couch and I used a combination of the good night bed bug spray and diatomaceous earth after the spray dried. That worked well. This time we had them in both bedrooms AND the couch. I was mortified and at my wits end. This product was only $10 and worth a try. I sprayed my daughters baseboards, floor, under her wooden crib, under all her dressers and all around. The very next morning i saw a few dead bedbugs laying around on her floor. We had them terrible in our bedroom. I was waking up at night itching and had huge embarrassing welts all over my back, arms, legs, it was terrible. I bought 2 cheap mattress covers from Ollie's and used this spray on our hardwood floors, baseboards, removed the dresser drawers and sprayed all inside and behind the dresser. I didn't see any colonies, any live bugs at all. That night I FINALLY sleep wonderfully. I haven't been bitten since. I have seen a few dead ones on our floors so it had to be the combination of the spray as well as the mattress covers. Only cons were that it does have a strong smell. I was coughing and had a runny nose spraying it in our small bedrooms, maybe I used too much, but I would gladly take that over being bitten! August 31, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mostly water Not very effective at ridding yourself of those annoying little creatures. Save your money because you're going to need to hire a professional August 9, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not as effective as I thought The flees did not go away. I had to hire an exterminator even after I returned to Home Depot to purchase three boxes of Flee and Bedbug Defoggers. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BEST PRODUCT EVER The Product is very effective in Killing Bed burgs immediately especially with the nuisance they create. July 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by White socks test - fail - pump fail Used this along with foggers, the combo of the 2 left me with fleas on my socks the next day. The "trigger" on the handle fell apart after 3 rooms August 11, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not working on bed bugs I sprayed on my mattress many times. It almost was wet but on the morning when I checked my bed. I found some alive bed bugs. August 8, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This product doesn't work at all. I purchased this product at Home Depot thinking that it was going to kill the fleas that have broken out in the back of my house. By the end of the day, I noticed that this fleas weren't dying at all, when I sprayed on my white tile floor on my kitchen. It was as if the fleas did not care and kept jumping around and jumping around for minutes. Not seconds, but minutes. This cheap product doesn't work. Don't buy it. I will take it back to Home Depot and hopefully get my $$$$ back. June 20, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by this stuff works... I was completely happy with the results, I used it everywhere in my home, Carpets, Walls, You name it.... I haven't seen a bed bug since July 9, 2016
