PHILADELPHIA - Transport Mikron insecticide recently received supplemental labeling from EPA to control bed bugs on mattresses and inside empty luggage, FMC Corporation announced. 

For infested mattresses, linens must be removed and washed before reuse. Transport Mikron should be applied to tufts, seams, folds and edges until moist, and should be allowed to dry before making the bed, FMC said. For luggage, all clothing and other articles must be removed before application.

Transport Mikron may be used on bed frames, box springs, dressers, clothes closets, carpet edges and wall hangings, as well as electrical switch plates, door frames, bookcases and window frames. When treating furniture, pay special attention to tufts, folds, seams and difficult-to-access areas, the company said.

"The supplemental label allows PMPs to apply Transport Mikron in most areas of a bedroom when there is evidence of bed bugs," said Catherine Bernard, pest product manager, FMC Professional Solutions. "With this supplemental label, PMPs can now use Transport Mikron for nearly all of their pest treatment needs."
