Transport® Mikron™ Insecticide Now Labeled in New York for Control of Bed Bugs on Mattresses and Luggage

PHILADELPHIA, December 2012 – Pest management professionals (PMPs)  in New York may now use Transport® Mikron™ insecticide to control bed bugs on mattresses and inside empty luggage, announced FMC Corporation. The product may be applied where evidence of bed bugs occurs.

Transport Mikron may also 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.

“PMPs in New York can now apply Transport Mikron in most areas of a bedroom when there is evidence of bed bugs,” said Catherine Bernard, professional pest brand marketing manager for FMC Professional Solutions.“In fact, New York PMPs can use Transport Mikron for nearly all of their pest treatment needs, now that the product has this supplemental label and the Food and Feed Handling Establishment supplemental label.”

She added that PMPs can mix a tank or sprayer with Mikron for multiple jobs and not worry about the formulation settling out. Introduced to the pest management professional industry in 2011, Transport Mikron is a clear, highly advanced, non-repellent liquid insecticide formulation.

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