List Of Pesticides To Control Bed Bugs

Got Bed Bugs? Here's a List of Pesticides to Control Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are small insects that are brownish in color with flat bodies. Many people mistake them for ticks or even cockroaches, but there are some major differences. For one, the cleanliness of a place has no bearing on whether bed bugs live there. Bed bugs feed on blood from people and animals, and their only qualification for a home is a living host.

These bugs prefer to stay close to their feeding area, and are most active at night. That's where they got their name, and why they're so frequently found in mattresses. However, bed bugs can live in other areas, especially in upholstered furniture. A bed bug infestation is characterized by dark spotting on furniture or mattresses, which is actually dried excrement.

So what can you do if you have a bed bug infestation? Pesticides are a common solution. Here's a list of pesticides to control bed bugs that you can try:

Cyfluthrin: Cyfluthrin is an odorless pesticide that is mixed with water to create an effective spray that can be used to eliminate bed bugs. You can use this spray on carpets, furniture, basebords and mattresses -- anywhere bed bugs are suspected.

Sterifab Bed Bug Spray - This amazing spray not only kills bed bugs, it works on other pests as well. It's also a sanitizer and germicide that can be used anywhere in your home. This product is safe for people and pets and emits no harmful fumes like traditional pesticides may.

Diatomaceous Earth - Diatomaceous Earth is an amazing natural product made from the fossils of tiny water plants. Harmless to humans, this product is razor sharp and totally lethal to insects and pests. To rid your mattress or other furniture of bed bugs simply dust with diatomaceous earth and wait. If the bed bugs touch the earth, their protective coating will be destroyed and they'll dry out. If they ingest the earth, their insides will be shredded. Either way, this safe and natural product will get rid of the problem!

Ecozone Natural Insect Powder - This powder is made from 100% pyrethrum flowers, which are a type of chrysanthemum found in Africa. This product is applied by dusting and is considered safe and effective on bed bugs as well as other pests.

Any one of these pesticides can be used to eliminate your bed bug problem. Another option is to hire a professional exterminator who can come into your home and take care of the problem for you. It's important to get rid of bed bugs as quickly as possible, because they can multiply and spread, causing an out of control infestation.
