Bed Bug Control Information
This is the basic information needed for bed bug control and products used
in bed bug control.
NEW: Bed Bug Combo Kit containing all MGK products.
Put simply, you will need an insecticide for residual on
bed frames, baseboards, etc. as well as an insecticide dust for application to
areas where bed bugs hide but where sprays do not reach.
Bed Bug Control
Step 1: Extensive examination to locate possible bed bug harborage.
Step 2: Elimination of any clutter which can contribute to bed bugs or give them places to hide.
Step 3: Washing all possible clothing and bedding items in hot water. Hot wash and/or dry will kill many bed bugs.
Step 4: Application of products to kill bed bugs and to help prevent their spread or re-infestation.
Products to kill bed bugs can be adjusted to fit your
situation. For instance, a heavily infested room needs a great deal more
attention than a room that is only suspected of or has a light infestation.
Bedlam Insecticide is an aerosol that
can be sprayed on mattresses and other items. Can also be used in cracks
and crevices but not quite as effective as an insecticide dust for these
areas. Some of our customers will take Bedlam when traveling, staying in
motels, hotels or even another home, as prevention against picking up bed bugs.
Most popular products for residual spray:
SC Insecticide combines two powerful residual insecticide chemicals,
beta-cyfluthrin and Imidacloprid . Temprid SC controls resistant bed bugs
for more than 30 days, even on surfaces where many other products have
failed. In addition, Temprid SC kills bed bug eggs when applied as a direct
treatment and, more surprisingly, dried residues prevent eggs from hatching.
Onslaught Insecticide is popular for customers who
have been using Suspend SC but would like to rotate to a different pesticide.
Onslaught made by same company that invented Nyguard IGR
and Bedlam aerosol.
Gentrol IGR is an insect growth regulator that
effects bed bugs and roaches by inhibiting their ability to mature and
reproduce. Can be used alone or mixed with your insecticide solution.
Crack and Crevice Products
Most popular products for applying to cracks and crevices:
Hand bellows duster is an excellent tool for properly
applying insecticide dusts into cracks and crevices. Delta Dust can be
applied from its own container but a hand duster allows for neater application
and makes the job a great deal easier.
