How Insecto Smoke Bombs Work
The Insecto Bomb is a convenient and simple one-shot fumigation device for clearing a room of pests. It consists of a canister which, when activated, releases a mixture of Permethrin and Potassium Chlorate fumes, killing common insects in an enclosed space over the course of a 16 hour period. The ideal time to use fumigate your grow-room is inbetween crop cycles when the room is empty. This will ensure that when you begin the next cycle, the room is free of pests.
Mini fumer: 7.5m³ to 10m³
Midi fumer: 20m³ to 30m³
Maxi fumer: 50m³ to 100m³
How to Use Insecto Smoke Bombs
Close all windows, turn off all intake and extraction fans and make the room as fume-tight as possible. Place the Fumer in the centre of the room, as low as possible, on a heat resistant surface. Remove the lid, light the fuse and immediately exit the room closing the door behind you. For best results, fumigate in the late afternoon and leave the room sealed for the night. It is a wise precaution to ventilate the room for a short time before re-using it.
Never allow pets, fish, yourself or other people (especially children) to be in a room when using an Insecto. Fumers get hot and should only be used when placed on a heat-proof surface. Before use, shut windows and turn off all ventilation fans. Shake the container well before opening to fluff out the powder to ensure the fumer ignites properly. For best effect, try to place the fumer centrally in the room and make sure that nothing is placed close directly above it. Sparks can jump several inches so make sure the area is clear in the 12 inches above the fumer.
