Bed bugs have evolved to become really resistant to the pyrethroid and neonicotinoid classes of chemicals, which is what most synthetic sprays on the consumer market contain. Maggie’s Farm Bed Bug Killer dust is one of the best products available to control bed bugs. It is a desiccant dust that has no odor and will not stain, and it provides fast control (killing spray-resistant bed bugs too). When bed bugs come in contact with our Bed Bug Killer, the product clings to their exoskeletons and absorbs the waxy coating, causing them death by dehydration. Death usually occurs 12-24 hours after they contact the dust. Bed Bug Killer dust will provide very long lasting protection of living areas, assuming it isn’t removed.
It is important to follow the label directions carefully when applying Bed Bug Killer to make sure you are putting the dust in the right places. A little dust goes a long way! Because heat will kill them, run anything you can through the dryer for 20 minutes (i.e. sheets, mattress covers, stuffed animals, clothes, etc.) When applying the dust, the key to getting good control is to be extremely thorough because bed bugs can hide in virtually any tiny crack in furniture, bedding, pictures, carpet, drapes, baseboards, electronics, etc. The list goes on.
Maggie’s Farm Ant & Roach Killer aerosol can also be used as a quick-acting direct spray killer for bed bugs. Again, thoroughness of the application is the key. Just read and follow the label directions. Ant & Roach Killer has the scent of the natural plant oils that are the active ingredients (cinnamon, thyme, rosemary), so make sure you are okay with this scent before spraying a lot of it in your sleeping area.
If you have an active infestation that is established in your home, you should consider calling a professional pest control company.
