Great Product! Gets rid of mild bed bug problems.
By Bedlam in New York, NY 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 in Arlington, VA 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 in Washington, DC 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 in Newtown Square Pa 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 Brittany in Forestville, MD on April 3, 2015
This product worked fantastic! Took two cans, but this stuff is heavy duty. After two pretty potent treatments, no more bed bugs! I'm very happy, my fiancé is happy, and we were able to resume our lives again as normal - itch free! Thank you Bedlam!

Bedlam really works
By Rod45103 in Cincinnat, ohio on February 12, 2015
I have to go into bank repo house each week and throw away everything people leave behind including carpets. Most of my work is in poor communities around Dayton Ohio. Bedbugs are spreading many forms of sickness, they are almost like crawling syringes. To stop them I have tried everything you can buy at major hardware stores with nothing working . Unless you have old farmers with DDT left over from the 60's, nothing works better than bedlam. I make a point to spray my work boots daily, my car seats and carpets and have never had any more problems even though I load people's trash into my uhaul and handle their left over life mess at least twice to clean up.

Two months and not one sighting! Not one bite!
By Carole in Brooklyn, New York on October 20, 2014
This stuff does what it says. It has been 2 months and I have not see a bedbug or have been bit. I used it right after getting it. Then I resprayed again after 2 weeks. I'm going to spray another preventative one soon. This is the only thing that has worked and believe me I have tried everything!

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.

Matt from Va asked:
QCan or should this be used in combination with diatomaceous earth?
I am about to begin treating my room for bed bugs that just began to show up. I bought a mattress cover and some d-earth before finding your products. I'm planning on encasing my mattress and dusting the edges of the mattress and the bed frame with d-earth, and then following up with the Bedlam.
A You may use Bedlam Insecticide Spray and Diatomaceous Earth in conjunction with each other to treat for bed bugs. However, it would be counter productive to spray Bedlam Insecticide Spray on the same areas that have already been treated with Diatomaceous Earth. This is because Diatomaceous Earth must remain dry in order to be effective. We would recommend treating the mattress with Bedlam Insecticide Spray instead of the Diatomaceous Earth because the Diatomaceous Earth may go airborn and won't stay in place as well as the Bedlam Insecticide Spray. Diatomaceous Earth is best suited for areas that will be left undisturbed.

Ed from Richmond, Va asked:
QCarpet beetles larvae
Found the main problem inside my couches. I found a lot of shell casing inside the couch and quite a few live ones. and 1 in between the box spring and mattress. I removed the material on the back of the box spring and got rid of the wool on the corners with the sheddings on it, but did not find any live ones. my questions is can they hurt me and my dog. should I throw away my box spring and couches.
Carpet beetles larvae will not harm people or pets. They live off off the dander and other organic materials found in furniture and carpets. Please visit our Carpet Beetle control Page. Apply Bedlam to the furniture to treat the larvae.
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?

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.
