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.

Answer: 
It depends on what you are spraying for. With bed bugs the chemical actually has to come in with contact with the bug. You might consider mixing this with a home defense chemical that also creates a barrier. There is not an overnight fix when it comes to bed bugs it takes a concentrated effort to rid yourself of them. One other thing about this hot shot is the nozzle, it is not constructed very well.

Answer: 
Hi Jawanda. If you no longer see signs of bed bugs, you'll know your treatment worked. Use a hair dryer on high heat to test for the presence of remaining bed bugs (the heat will flush bed bugs from their hiding places if there are any left). Spot treat as needed until all bed bugs are eliminated.

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
