It's hard to give a review of bed bug control products because even in the world of professional pest control there is no sure fire way to get rid of bed bugs. Pest control companies are struggling with products and techniques to get rid of bed bugs because this problem is a relatively new one in the world of modern pest control. When you look at products like Diatct, Tallman, Thwart, Eaton's Bed Bug, and Bedlam, among others, it is easy to get confused and turned around. Which ones work? Unfortunately, it is hard to say. Each bed bug problem is unique to it's specific situation and the severity of the infestation itself. All the products probably have some good qualities in theory, but just as in professional pest control, you may have to use a combination along with other mechanical means to get rid of these unwanted guests. Being aware that these products are even on the market is half the battle. Now doing your homework and doing the work is how to proceed from here. Visit the products websites and do your homework. Good Luck.

Phantom to the rescue? I think so, but be sure to follow the label directions as this is a professional product. Another fine product for bedbug control as well as roaches and ants is a product called Phantom. It is a non-repellent chemical that the insect walks over unknowingly and tracks it back to the nest which kills off the insects in a domino effect manner. It is now labelled for bed bugs. You have to check your state to be sure it is labelled in it. Definitely a fantastic product.

There is a product that is claiming some pretty amazing stuff. Best Yet Bed Bug Control from Cedar Cide Industries is claiming to be the best bed bug control product and the safest on the market. The website for the company is amazing and if all they are claiming is true, then this product could very well be a definite tool for the toolbox.

Looking for a good combo to tackle the bed bugs the professional way? The battle and struggle for any kind of effective control has been going on since bedbugs have been reintroduced into our society some years back. Pest control operators and entomologists alike have been scratching their heads trying to come up with a real solution to the bedbug epidemic that has been plaguing us for a while now. I have been hearing through the grape vine that combining suspend sc and kicker, both Bayer products, has been getting some really good results. Both of these products can be used on the mattress in areas where the bedbugs hide like the tufts and the buttons, etc. So at least that is some good news in the battle of the bug. These products might have to be found of a DIY pest control products website and must be used with extreme care. It's best if left to a professional.

Here's a product that has a rock solid money back guarantee and if it works as good as they advertise it does then I would have to recommend it. I haven't heard too much good or bad about it a this point so I can't really give it a yeah or nay. It supposed to kill bed bugs within 7 seconds and repel bedbugs. You are allowed to spray this on beds and upholstery. So safe you can sleep on your bed that night is what they claim. I guess it is worth a shot and if you have tried this bed bug control product and it worked or did not please feel free to put your thoughts in my comment section.

This is another product that claims to kill bedbugs and it looks like this can be an effective tool in your arsenal. The MSDS sheet indicated that is is a combo of Pyrethrins and Diatomaceous Earth which is known to cut into the cuticle of the insect. The product makes claims that it can be used on mattresses and if the directions are followed I would say it could help reduce populations for sure. I would recommend visiting Diatect Internationale's website to read up on this product for yourself. In my opinion...a definite tool to have.

Sterifab is one of the most versatile products on the market for a variety of insects including public enemy number one. The bed bug. Steri-fab is labeled for application on beds and upholstery for bedbugs. It dries in twenty minutes and can leaves no residue. The pros and cons of this product are the following: It kills on contact. It leaves no residue after treatment. It can be sprayed on anything except people and animals. The cons are simply it is only a contact killer. So if you are looking for a product that you can use in conjunction with your complete bedbug control solution I would highly recommend Sterifab.

It will be no mystery that I am not a fan of DIY bedbug control products. I am not saying that there are not any products out there that may work, it's just that the detailed involvement of a bedbug treatment would render the money spent to get rid of the bedbugs wasted on the product. Unless you know exactly where to look, how to proceed, and what to so, your product would only give you temporary peace at best, if none at all. Sometimes people attempting to do it themselves winds up making the problem worse by spreading the bedbugs to other rooms or deeper into hiding. There may be instances where people are just looking for a quick kill for what they see and I guess for this purpose some of these products can be useful. So clearly there is a place for these products if used as a tool and not as a means of elimination or a cheap way out. Having said all that I will present to you all the products that are on the market today and what my opinions are on them so you can make your own decision on whether to try it on your own or to hire a professional.

As anyone accessing this blog knows, bedbugs have become an epidemic of enormous proportions. People who experience a bedbug problem come from all walks of life and can contract the problem from a five star hotel to a homeless shelter. People call pest control operators, they scour the Internet, they try over the counter products to control the bedbugs to no avail. It is a problem that is come back to haunt us from the past, a problem that will get worse before it gets better, and a problem we can beat, if we as humans put our heads together to come up with a solution. We can live in space, make organs in Petra dishes, and assemble robots, we will eventually come up with a solution. Until then...this website will offer in site and dialog about the products we now have on the market, techniques that may or may not work, and make you aware of new products that are brought to market. Together we can beat this. We will do so with knowledge!
