Will Mortein NaturGard Auto Protect Indoor Insect Control System affect birds kept inside the house?

No, provided you direct the spray away from your feathered friends to avoid a build-up of spray in and around their cage, which over time could lead to risk of overexposure.

No. The spray should be positioned away from food and food preparation areas. After all, it’s meant for bugs, not people, so keep it out of the kitchen.

Is it okay to use Mortein NaturGard Auto Protect Indoor in the baby’s nursery?

No. It’s important to use this product in well-ventilated rooms away from children’s activity and play areas, so it’s not recommended for use in the baby’s nursery.

Is it okay to use Mortein NaturGard Auto Protect Indoor on carpeted areas?

Yes, but be aware light-coloured carpet may become discoloured. The same may happen to carpet in a high-traffic area.

If the spray gets onto furniture, how can it be removed?

Simply clean with warm soapy water and dry thoroughly.

Can Air Wick Freshmatic be run alongside Mortein NaturGard Auto Protect Indoor?

Running these two side by side isn’t ideal as the Freshmatic may change the spray distribution pattern of the NaturGard and compromise its effectiveness.

If another spray is used manually while Mortein NaturGard Auto Protect Indoor is running, will the area be overdosed?

You don’t have to worry. Over a 24-hour period the system disperses the equivalent of a single 3- to 4-second spray at regular intervals.

Not necessarily, but it’s recommended that you turn it off if you’ll be away for more than a week. Plus, you’ll save money!

You can install it on papered or painted walls, but it should never be located so that it’s pointing directly at a wall.

Should windows be left open a little when using this product?

Yes. The room must be well ventilated, so if the product is installed in a small area, it’s advisable to keep a door or window open.
