Great Product! Gets rid of mild bed bug problems.
By Bedlam on January 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 on December 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 on October 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 Adrienne on June 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
By Kris on July 16, 2014
Great product! Low odor, but I did wear a mask while spraying. Easy to use and dried pretty quickly. The company sent this out super fast and I was happy to see it got to my doorstep so quickly!

Helped Rid Bedbugs
By Deborah on June 16, 2014
I had the exterminator spray and fog my bedroom three times in 3 weeks and still saw bedbugs. After the third week, I used an encasement for my mattress and box spring and sprayed the Bedlam insecticide spray everyday for a week and I have not seen a bug in 3 weeks. I am very satisfied with the product.

The Best Purchase Ever Made
By Elizabeth on March 26, 2014
We had a homeless friend/Veteran stay with us for a few days. During that time he told us where he was previously staying they had bedbugs. Well we checked the furniture and didn't see anything but several weeks later oh my goodness, we were infested. We tried several insecticides but they didn't work. We threw out furniture, bedding and sprayed again. That didn't work. Hired a exterminator and he recommended BedLam for continous application after he was done. He left us a can and it worked. We bought more to spray weekly and we haven't been bitten since. Apparently I am highly allergic to their bites, almost put me in the hospital several times. This is the best and I highly recommend this product with other precautions like mattress and box spring covers, etc. FANTASTIC PRODUCT!

Excellent Bedbug Control
By Brent on February 27, 2014
I am a licensed pest control applicator and use Bedlam when needed for certain work orders. It provides an excellent contact and residual action. Its non-staining to most surfaces, low odor and comes with a crevice application straw. The 17oz size makes it an economical value for spot applications!
By Tammie on October 21, 2013
The product worked very well. It gave us relief knowing the problem was finally resolved after spending wasted money on store products.

So far so good
By Jasmin on September 17, 2013
Started using this spray after a pco came in twice and I still had bugs. I would consider my infestation light since it seemed to be isolated to one room. I live in an apt building and the tenants downstairs have them. Prior to moving in we sealed off all other rooms but somehow the bugs found a way into the one middle bedroom and started terrorizing my daughter. I started with the inspection, then with the washing, then into the alcohol. Thought id go crazy. Then called the landlord who finally called the exterminator who came in twice and I still saw them in her room. I then came across this spray on another website and decide to order. I've done three treatments and so far no traces of them. It's been two months. I also ordered the delta dust and bedlam plus and used them in conjunction with each other. The exterminator came and saw the powder in the room and made a comment that the Internet is destroying his business ...go figure

Bedlam Insecticide Spray
August 12, 2013
The spray seems to be working. I thought I was getting a natural insecticide spray but with all the warnings I'm sure this is NOT natural. Do you have a spray that is natural?

December 3, 2009 Debbie asked:
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.
September 5, 2009 James asked:
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.

July 26, 2010 Jk asked:
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.
April 18, 2010 Robin asked:
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.
June 4, 2010 Rebecca asked:
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.
November 17, 2014 Kim asked:
QAfter use of Bedlam, how long do I wait until dogs can return to the house?
A Once Bedlam Insecticide is dry, your animals can return to the area. This could take anywhere from 2-3 hours.
October 24, 2014
Terri from Simpsonville asked:
QIs Bedlam Plus safe for pets?
A Yes, Bedlam and Bedlam Plus are safe to use in a home where you have pets. You just need to keep pets and children out of the area you plan to treat until the surfaces have completely dried. Bedlam should not be used directly on a pet.
September 7, 2014
Sj from Nj asked:
QCan I spray Bedlam on floors and carpets?
I have a larger size rug that might have remaining bird mites on, should I spray on top and under?
A Yes, Bedlam Insecticide can be sprayed on rugs and carpet. You will vacuum the rug and carpet thoroughly before spraying. After the vacuuming has been done, you will spray the area until wet. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Ben from Los Angeles, Ca asked:
QDoes Bedlam damage or discolor Leather furniture?
Hi, I plan to use Bedlam on a leather couch for it's seams and crevices. Will it damage the couch in any way?
Bedlam Insecticide Spray is labeled to be applied to seams of furniture and should not stain. We recommend to test a small area on the couch just to make sure it will not leave a residue.
July 13, 2014
Bob from Anna,tx asked:
QIs Bedlam only available in aerosol cans or can it can it be mixed in a sprayer?
A Bedlam is only available in an aerosol. There is a new product called Bedlam Plus which has a foaming action but is also ready-to-use. One of the most popular liquid concentrates for bed bug treatments is Temprid SC.
July 5, 2014
Carolyn from Dallas, Texas asked:
QWhy vacuum often when you say bedbugs aren't in carpet?
A When we say vaccum often, we mean floors, mattresses, baseboards, etc. This will help to bring the bed bugs up to come in contact with insecticide. After vaccuming, be sure to discard of contents outdoors.
July 5, 2014
Carolyn from Dallas, Texas asked:
QPlease explain the difference between the dust products, like Delta Dust, Evergreen Dust, and Alpine Dust.
You've mentioned several different dust products. What's the difference in them, meaning the appropriate place to apply or their best usage?
The dusts would really be applied in all the same areas following the instructions on the product labels. Where you use them is really dependent on what type of pest you are treating for. The main differences are in the active ingredients and features. Alpine insecticide dust is the industry's first and only Reduced Risk non repellent dust that contains Dinotefuran and Diatomaceous Earth for quicker kill broad-spectrum use. Delta Dust had Deltamethrin and is the world's first and only 100% waterproof insecticide dust. Evergreen Dust is a 1% Pyrethrin botanical insecticide, meaning it's all natural. They are all really labeled for the same types of pests.

Carolyn from Dallas, Texas asked:
QCan Bedlam be sprayed on mattress encasements? If not, what?
I've applied: Delta Dust in all cracks/crevices, screw holes, etc., on my headboard (I don't have foot board); FenvaStar/Gentrol mixture on metal bed frame; put Climb Ups under all legs; put Diatomaceous Earth around all baseboards. But I'm still getting bitten at night. Plus I wash/dry all bed linens on hot every day. HELP! What can I apply to the mattress encasements to kill the bedbugs and put sheet on bed and sleep there?
Yes, Bedlam Insecticide Spray can be sprayed on your mattress encasement. Delta Dust should only be used in the wall voids. Fenvastar EcoCap should only be used around the baseboards, cracks and crevices, around doors, corners, closets, cabinets, etc. For bed bug treatment only, it can be used around the inside of your bed frame. Diatomaceous Earth is a good product to be used along the carpets and baseboards. If you are seeing the bed bugs, we would recommend the contact killer Steri-Fab. Please also know that these treatments, except the dusts, need to be done more than one time so fully eradicate the bed bugs. The sheets need to be placed in the dryer for at least an hour because bed bugs will die in temperatures of 120F and higher. Also, a good practice would be to vacuum in each room and dump the bag every night. We would recommend reading this bed bug article. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Sheila from Fort Lauderdale, Florida asked:
QWhich spray do you recommend could be applied safely to bedding for bedbugs
A There are no real products that will be applied to bedding. You want to keep up with washing and drying on high heat. You can however use products to treat the seams of mattresses and box springs like Bedlam.

Mitekillaitsonlikedonkeykong from Melbourne, Fl asked:
QBedlam efficacy on bird mites and/or rodent mites
I'm battling what is almost certainly bird mites. I purchased onslaught which slaughtered them, and Steri-Fab for daily use inside of car, pet bedding, etc. This combination worked!!! Until 7 to 10 days later...I slacked the first time around and missed a birds nest that took 3 to 4 hours, 5 trips and at least 10 bottles of water to find lol. I don't want to slack this time around and think my mite pillaging will be much more enjoyable and thorough if I had an aerosol can (opposed to lugging around a sprayer). I intend to spray every square inch of my attic including a "light" broadcast to my sprayed insulation. Would you recommend Bedlam for this application (or Bedlam plus?), or something different?
A Neither Bedlam nor Bedlam Plus are labeled for use to control bird mites, so we would not recommend either product for this application. We do not have an aerosol or liquid concentrate that we would recommend for use on top of spray insulation. Please view our Mite Control Page for assistance with identification to see what kind of treatment, if any, may be necessary.
