Great Product! Gets rid of mild bed bug problems.
By Bedlam in New York, NY on 01/17/2009
I had a mild infestation due to an adjoining apartment. After reading up on bed bugs I thought I would never get rid of them. But after about two months of using BedLam Insecticide to treat spot areas and furniture they were gone. I also have a dog and he did not get sick. The residual effect also kills other bugs you didn't even know you had. Remember to put vaseline or mineral oil around bedpost and furniture legs to keep them from returning. Wash and bag all clothes while you are doing treatment. Use gloves when spraying and keep pets away until dry.

By Greg in Arlington, VA on 12/22/2010
After previously paying almost $600 for 3 professional treatments, my bed bug problem was gone for only about 1 month until it returned. I bought 3 cans of this and the Drione dust to treat my one bedroom condo on my own. Rather than wash everything and bag everything up this time during treatment, I simply sprayed this all on the sides of my mattress (which still had an encasement from months earlier), crevices and around the baseboards of my bedroom walls and couch (basically anywhere my fiance and I would sleep). I figured they have to eat and would come into contact with the Bedlam when they came to feed. After the first treatment, we never saw another bug and my fiance never got another bite. It has been 3 months. Every 14 days I emptied out a can of the bedlam under my couch cushions, around bed and baseboards. Also sprinkled the Drione around baseboards and in couch. After 1 treatment the problem was solved, but did 2 follow up treatments just to be safe. I keep 2 cans of these in my closet just in case we notice more bites. Also, domyownpestcontrol.com is an extremely reliable service, with very fast (and free) shipping. Will never use a professional pest control service again!

Bedlam did the job, but with some effort
By Cynthia in Washington, DC on 10/25/2009
My old apartment became infested with bedbugs, but the management didn't treat the apartment aggressively enough. When I moved to a new apartment, some of the bugs came with me, much to my dismay. I have applied Bedlam thoroughly to my bedroom floor, baseboards, and closets 10 times over a 3-month period. I think that I have finally gotten rid of the bugs. I had read that Bedlam is effective against bedbug eggs as well, which I'm hoping is the case. I have invested in a bedbug mattress cover and am carefully inspecting my bedding for any signs of bugs. I have also been keeping my clothes in plastic bags until I'm sure they're gone. I would recommend this product, but be consistent and diligent. I have also applied MotherEarth D to my bedroom floor using the hand duster. I continue to keep a very thin layer of MotherEarth D on my hardwood floor in the bedroom. I also used the Gentrol IGR aerosol twice, which I hoped help, but I'm not sure how effective it truly was. My only regret is that I didn't buy more Bedlam to begin with (since it is cheaper if you buy more from the get go).

By Genna in Brooklyn on 11/16/2010
Well i saw a bed bug, killed it and though i only had one, then saw one more and couple of days saw 3 little ones in a corner of my bed, so i looked on line and saw a lot of different products, toooo many different products. And after (believe it or not) about 1-2 hours or searching i found this one :) and after spraying it all over the place i never saw a bed bug again, its been about a month since and nothing!!!! And no smell to the spray! well some but it goes away after opening the windows and leaving the room for like 10 min! :) Really glad i got it! I am thankful to God for giving me this product! God bless!

By Adrienne in Newtown Square Pa on 06/14/2010
Just wanted to write a great review for the Bed Bug Kit which included this product. We had bed bugs in our bed it was horrible and disgusting. We called a pest company and they wanted 800.00 dollars. I bought this kit from DoMyOwnPestControl and it worked. It has been a month and we are bed bug free. But I do recommend buying the bed bug kit since these bugs live in woodwork and drapes so just this product alone works better with the kit. I now just keep this in my bedroom and spray every week to be sure. Thanks to Do My Own Pest I have saved 700.00. Thanks

This spray was by far the best to get rid of bed bugs. I tried a LOT of local sprays and bombs and realized days later the bugs were back. Within days after using the Bedlam the bedbugs were gone and have been over 10 months now. I've referred this to others as it was a life saver. Having bed bugs is VERY stressful and costly, Bedlam is the BOMB!!!

Wow, this is something else against bed bugs
By Jade in Chicago on 03/05/2013
Wow, this spray is something else. I live in Chicago in Bedbug alley and discovered that I have a mild infestation in my bedroom and I am currently living in between two apartments that are infested....joy of my life..ugh! So no matter what I realized that even after I clear the infestation, it will just happen again because they are in the walls and coming up the pipes (found dead one in the bathroom sink) and I think one neighbor gave up treating and then the other one bombed the apartment sending them everywhere on our floor :( After a month of trying all sorts of stuff (spraying alcohol, cedar oil, DE, etc.) plus getting estimates from my landlord for treatment (insane pricing, about 1 grand), I researched and found pestmall and then this stuff from BedLam. This spray is like the terminator for these guys but be prepared to put your back into it! I have a collectible wood frame bed of which I will be damned if I have to throw out that was signed by the designer and the little boogers got in there. I flipped it thinking that I'd see 3 or 4...but OMG, I had infiltrated ground zero...bedbugs and their babies dead everywhere or running for cover. I sprayed 2 cans with the stick that came with it into the cracks, every crevice and every side of that frame, let it foam up. Goodness, the carnage that came out the cracks were amazing!! (almost have to say I felt like Dale Gribble and loved it) Best part is that they all died intantly! the red ones, the clear ones...simply amazing. Next I sprayed by mattress, pillows, sheets, comforter then took Bedlam Plus and sprayed all of the carpeting in each room, boxes, pretty much any exposed part. After they bit me in my pinky toe, it was war!! It may be morbid but I was proud of the death I caused in there. Because I sprayed like a madwoman in all of the cracks, I will then apply the Drione dust to give a long term barrier after a few days, and then treat again in another few days, but from what I saw, this stuff is excellent and offers an excellent solution to a mild problem in the bedroom. Also, it saves so much money. In an apartment, bed bugs are uncontrollable because of people moving in and out with them, so you just always have to be on guard so this is a true gem in that war! Thanks!

Best product I've used
By Peter in Burke, Virginia on 09/28/2011
I've used this in combination with careful inspection and treatment of clothing/items in the room and it works well. Rubbing alcohol, contrary to some 1 star reviews, does not kill on contact. But rubbing alcohol mixed with the growth inhibitor serves its purpose well and keeps them from developing and breeding. You will need a lot of this depending on your situation. I spent 30 hours managing one room alone with approximately 100 bedbugs in various stages of development. Your furniture and belongings will drive the time variable up or down. I have three loft beds in the room so this is why it took so long. You must follow up for the next two weeks following initial treatment and make a judgement call on how much longer to wait until you bring the clothing, toys, etc. back in the room. This product is great for pest management as most store bought products don't have the spray line which is necessary for reaching deep in cracks. Without this you waste much of the product on surfaces because the cone effect on traditional models forcing you to spend and spend and spend. It's pest management, not extermination. Keep that in mind and remember you are bigger than they are and can crush them under your thumb :)

Works like magic
By E.s. in Queens, NY on 02/07/2011
Great product!! My husband was the one that purchased the product and I admit I wasn't very pleased. I thought maybe we should contact an exterminator first. Thank god no regrets. We have a 3 bedroom apt and those little disgusting creatures [bedbugs] were taking residence in 2 of the bedrooms and more so in 1 of them that has a wood platform frame. We've done the treatment 3 times at 2 week intervals. The 2nd time around we found maybe 3-5 bedbugs in the room that has the wood platform frame and 1 in the other room. The 3rd time around no bedbugs. My husband bought the NY 1-2 bedroom kit.

Great Travel Item
By Pat in Vineland, NJ on 11/01/2010
We travel by vehicle to our vacation destinations. I felt comfortable using this item. It comes with a straw like device so you can zero in on your area. We pulled back the bed covers and removed the mattress. Sprayed liberally. Also the mattress, mattress covers. I don't think there were any bedbugs but I certainly felt safer after spraying the bed and the room. I sprayed the suitcases and carried everything in plastic bags. There is no strong residue odor either. Got enough for our next trip too.

Bye bye bed bugs!
By Gigi in waterbury, ct on 10/23/2010
I purchased this along with Gentrol Aerosol to rid my apt of bedbugs. NY has a big problem w/ them & CT is starting to have the problem too. If I found this site a long time ago I wouldn't have had to throw out my living rm furniture! I sprayed my floors along the edge of the rugs. Now I can walk barefoot w/o being bit & don't have to worry about my 2 y/o playing on the floor. I ordered a 2nd can just in case I missed a few spots. I definitley recommend it!

BedLam is a good chemical for bedbugs and is effective right a way. Please provide a chemical kill for bedbug eggs also.

Didn't have a big infestation but still had bedbugs after 2 exterminator visits. We used Bedlam around the beds (after dismantling EVERYTHING and vacuuming) in conjunction with Cyonara everywhere else. We did 2 complete treatments 2 weeks apart. It seems to have done the job.

!!!FEEDBACK ON BedLam Insecticide!!!!
By Mr. in Woodside, NY on 06/07/2010
It works but it takes a while before it kills the insects. Doesn't have a pungent smell. My family used it to spray under the mattress, side doors, flooring, cabinet and any place of the house where there is a suspected insect breeding zone.
Have a question about this product?
Ask our product experts...
Ask a Question
QWhich spray product is best to kill bed bugs and the bed bug eggs on furniture such as dressers and tables?
ABedlam , Bedlam Plus and Steri-fab known to kill adult bed bugs and their eggs Bedlam will leave a 6 week residual and Steri-Fab is a contact kill only so it is great for sensitve areas like couches, chairs, and mattresses.
QCan Bedlam Bed Bug Aerosol Spray be used on bed sheets?
The Bedlam Insecticide instructions say to spray on garments - can we spray this product directly on our sheets before going to bed - perhaps after allowing it to dry for about 10-15 minutes and then placing another clean sheet over it?
A We would not recommend spraying your sheets. Bedbugs do not live on the sheets and this would not be a good use of the product. Instead, concentrate on treating the mattress, headboard, footboard, rails and surrounding areas. Allow the Bedlam to dry on the mattress first and then sleep on a clean sheet that is over the treated area.

QWhat is the best treatment for carpets when treating for bed bugs?
ABed Bugs actually do not normally hang out on the carpets and usually the carpets would be the last place to treat. Most treatments are directed in cracks and crevices, around the bed, baseboards, and harborage areas where bed bugs like to hide. You can use Bedlam on carpets as well as Steri-Fab.
QHow long does Bedlam aerosol last?
We have an infestation so far, in our bedroom, trying to keep them contained in one room and we have sprayed adjoining rooms as well. However, we are spraying nearly daily and still they show up at night..last night's count just five. We are still laundering and washing and steaming our clothes. Have also steamed the floors, all wood of course. Do we have to spray the mattress cover daily...how do we find the eggs?
ABedlam will typically last for 6 weeks under normal conditions. The bedbugs that walk over the area will die, but they will not die instantly. It can take up to a few hours for them to die, so you will still see them. The only product that we have that kills on contact is Steri-Fab and even still, contact means it takes minutes, not instantly. If you have only used Bedlam, you may want to use some of the other products found in our bed bug kits.

Qdifference between bedlam spray and bedlam plus
What is the difference between the bedlam plus for bed bugs and the regular bedlam spray. The plus is more expensive. Is it a stronger grade? Longer residual? Or are they identical?
AThe Bedlam Plus has all of the ingredients from regular Bedlam plus an extra added ingredient called imidacloprid which makes it work much better for folks that are dealing with pyrethroid resistant strains of bedbugs. Bedlam plus does not last longer than regular bedlam.

QIs it safe to spray bedlam on the seams of our mattress?
If bedlam is an insecticide then how can it be safe to sleep on our bed everynight?
QCan you spray BedLam on sofas? Is this safe?
AYes you can use Bedlam on sofas but it must be kept to the seams, tufts and folds only. You cannot spray Bedlam on the surface of the cushions or arm rests.
QWhy do I see bed bugs the next day when I spray Bedlam?
I took stuff out of a room, except dressers and table. I spray all around and on table and dresser. Next day, bed bugs are crawling on them as if I did not spray. How does this Bedlam spray work??? When I spray, I don't really see no different. Day time I don't see very many at all, but at night time they are out. So how does the spray work, when does it kill, and how long does it take to take effect. The can does not specifically this.
ABedlam can take up to 24 hours to kill a bedbug that contacts treated surfaces and receives a lethal dose of the insecticide. You need to be very thorough and be sure to treat every crack, crevice, tuft, fold seam, gap and void in the infested room. We strongly recommend using more than one type of product as well. It is industry standard that in addition to an aerosol product such as Bedlam to use an insecticide dust such as Evergreen Dust to treat areas that are more or less inaccessible on a day to day such as cracks or crevices on box-springs, under and behind furniture, wall voids, under baseboards and under the lip of the carpet. Bedlam can be used on the mattress, bed-frames, headboard, foot-board and any other piece of furniture that may be harboring bedbugs. Please take a few minutes to read over the Bedbug Treatment guide so that you may better understand what is needed to eliminate bedbugs in your home.
QWhat is the difference between BedLam and Cyzmic CS?
They both seem to leave a residue but do they both kill the eggs also?
AIf you are referring to bed bug eggs, then Bedlam is the best product available at this time and it does kill all stages of bed bugs, including the eggs. Also it comes in a ready to use aerosol can. Cyzmic CS is a liquid insecticide that is listed for bed bugs but it does not kill the eggs. Also, it requires mixing with water in a one gallon hand pump sprayer.
QIs Bedlam a product that can be used to treat luggage? Or is something better?
Can Bedlam and Phantom be used together? Or is this over kill.
AThe most commonly used product for bedbug control on luggage is JT Eaton Luggage spray. This product is labeled for use on luggage and will last for up to two weeks. You can use Bedlam and Phantom for bedbugs, but you would need to use them in separate areas. Phantom is a non-repellent insecticide and if you use Bedlam in the same area that applied Phantom then that non-repellent factor will be gone.
QHow much area does a can of bedlam cover approximately?
AIt is really hard to give an estimate on how far each can of Bedlam will go because most people are not treating around the perimeter of the room, but they are treating pieces of furniture. Most people report that a can of Bedlam will treat all of the seams and cracks and crevices in all of the furniture for a typical size bedroom when used as directed on the can.
QCan I spray my child's backpack with Bedlam to prevent bedbugs from coming home with her from school?
AWe would not recommend spraying your child's backpack with any product. Children are in direct contact with their backpack for a long period everyday, and they would be coming into contact with any insecticide sprayed onto the back for a long period too. It would be better to just use a heat treatment on the backpack. You can put the backpack into the dryer on medium or high heat for about an hour to kill any insect or insect egg that may be present.
QHow should I treat the carpet for bedbugs?
I live in an apartment that is heavily carpeted. I read in one of the earlier comments that they don't really hang out on carpets, but what if the whole room is carpeted?
AUsually, bedbugs will only be under the edge of the carpet where the carpet ends near the baseboards and where the furniture legs sit on the carpet. It may be necessary to pull the carpet up around the edges and apply a dust such as Evergreen Dust under the edge. You can spray the carpet where the legs of the furniture rest to eliminate any bedbugs in that area. Bedbugs do not infest carpeting like fleas.
QIs Bedlam Insecticide safe to use around my cat?
We currently don't have bedbugs, but am concerned about getting them from a neighbor who currently does. We want to use something as a preventative treatment, but have a cat and are concerned for her safety. Is this treatment safe for her, even after it dries?
AWhen used as directed on the product label, Bedlam is not harmful to cats. Be sure to remove your cat from the area that is being treated and you can let her back into the area after the spray has dried. Bedlam will not prevent bedbugs. You can apply an insecticide dust such as the Alpine dust to cracks and crevices around baseboards and into wall voids to help stop an infestation from moving through adjoining walls. We also recommend using bedbug proof mattress and boxspring encasements on all beds to help eliminate the tufts, folds and seams where bedbugs like to hide and make inspections easier.
QDoes Bedlam have an odor? If so, how strong is it and is it long-lasting?
ABedlam Insecticide does not have a strong odor. It is very slight, and we have never had a complaint about the odor. This product dries very quickly and any odor that is detected does not last very long at all due to the fact that it dries quickly.
