A tool in your arsenal...
By Erica on November 5, 2011
My bed bug problem seems to be contained now. (Dare I hope eliminated? Only time will tell. No bites or bug sightings in the bedroom for two weeks and only one bite a week ago on my couch- which has since been retreated.) As this product uses essential oils, you should expect it to be two things: oily and strong smelling. However, neither of these things were really a problem, nor would they keep me from using it again. The smell is not necessarily unpleasant, but it is strong enough to be bothersome initially if the area is not well ventilated. After treatment, the scent does hang around -somewhat like if you left a scented candle or a plug-in room scent going all the time. I used this product along my baseboards, on the feet of my bed, and to treat the mattress inside my couch. On the rest of the couch I used steam as I wanted to somewhat mitigate the smell. This product will leave an oily residue along the baseboards/floor wherever it is sprayed. This is how the product continues to work, so it's not a problem, but be aware that oil on wood floors is slippery, so keep it as close to the baseboards as possible. I did use it once on the area rug and it did not have any negative effect on it, nor was the residue noticeable there when sprayed lightly as directed and given time to dry. I found this product useful as one of the tools in my arsenal against bed bugs. Remember, no one product will be your silver bullet, and there is no substitute for thorough inspection, cleaning, vacuuming, washing/drying, and bagging (of treated items only unless you plan on waiting 18 months!). I plan to continue treating my baseboards to help prevent re-infestation from neighboring apartments (whose tenants I can only hope are working as hard as I am to eliminate this problem).

Perhaps the product has not yet been given a fair chance to work. However, the couch has been sprayed several times with no noticeable impact. No, others should choose a different product as will I soon.

Essentria Bed Bug Spray
By Melodie on September 29, 2012
I used the spray on all the things in the room and haven't seen any bugs since. Works well but has a strong smell.
By S.f. on October 28, 2012
It works for all intents and purposes. But if you find the nest and you spray it be sure to use a paper to grab and kill them. The spray works to kill them but it takes a could seconds and personally I would try and be doubly sure that they're dead. Also the smell is extremely strong and lingers for a couple days. As always any treatment needs more than one session and using more than one kind of treatment is best (ie. spray and dust).

QIs this product harmful to cats?
Is this product harmful to cats when sprayed around baseboards lightly and also we want a product my maintenance staff can spray on their shoes when entering units just in case they have any while they are walking through a unit...could this be a problem?
AEssentria Bed Bug Broadcast Insecticide should not be a problem for cats as long as the product label is followed. Cats and other pets should be out of the area while the application is being done and they can safely return to the area after the area has dried. You should not let your staff spray their shoes with any pesticide. They can spray their shoes with rubbing alcohol to kill any insects that may have hitched a ride.
September 23, 2011Nelsy from Providence asked:
QDoes the Essentria Bed Bug product have any residual properties or is it for spot treatment only?
AThe Essentria bed bug Aerosol does leave a residual that typically lasts a few weeks. You should reapply this product every 14 days when treating for bed bugs.
