There are two primary types of products to kill bed bugs, the first type includes things such as Steri-fab bed bug spray, and while these are great for many situations, they are not perfect for all infestations. The second kinds of product are bed bug dusts, which have their own advantages over sprays for killing these insects.
This category includes such popular natural pesticide products as Diatomaceous Earth and Pyrethrin Dust. Both of these are naturally occurring products. Diatomaceous Earth for instance is mined out of the Earth’s crust, whereas Pyrethrin dust is a natural derivative of the chrysanthemum flower. Each of these has a different effect on the bugs, both of which are lethal. DE works by causing irreparable damage to the protective outer shell of the insect, which leads to dehydration and death. Pyrethrin acts on the nervous system of the insect, leading to convulsions and death when the bugs respiration can no longer be controlled. Although each product is lethal to bugs, they are 100% safe to use around humans and pets, as neither have the physiology necessary for toxic effects to result from exposure.
The most popular chemical type of bed bug dust is Tempo dust. It is formulated using the same active ingredient as the popular tempo line of sprays, but in dust form is better suited to treating many bed bug infestations. That is because it will settle more easily into the cracks and crevices where the bugs hide, and will maintain its strength as long as it is kept dry, which should not be difficult in most situations.
If there’s any pest that has a well-deserved reputation for being hard to get out of your home, it’s the bed bug. These flat brown blood sucking insects can create large nests deep within the fabric of your mattress and box spring, and once they’re inside a bed, they are there to stay until you forcibly remove them.
