I purchased this item to get rid of bed bugs, I can not report on long term use, because I just used it yesterday but I can tell you it works and it works fast. It has no odor, I used it with gallon sprayer as recommended and I added Gentrol IGR into the mix, since this was my first time application I used 2 fluid ounce instead of 1 fluid ounce to prevent re infestation of bedbugs. After a mix , fluid is milky color but it dries clear without leaving any stains. By the time I ordered this product I am confident I had already eliminated at least all adult ones using a steam cleaner (almost everyday) for past six weeks, DE, 90% alcohol, Clorox, Bedlam Plus, and combination of Essential Oils in steamer such as Clove oil, Pepermint, Orange oil, Rosemary and Cedar oil. I put 10 drops of each to 32 ounce water, I than add 1 fluid ounce of this mixture to the water that I put in the steamer. Not only vapor alone kills the baby ones readily, the steam comes out dryer with more pressure force than when used water alone. I live in a condominium where the whole complex has bed bug problems, there for I have no choice but keep using products such as this one to prevent re- infestation. The reason I say this about a week ago while I was steam cleaning my carpets I lifted the clear plastic mat that was under the front entrance door, I discovered 5 adult dead bedbugs that got stuck between the carpet and the mat! I than realized they are coming just like everyone else, from the front door. After I sprayed along the base boards and cracks even the kitchen with FenvaStar, I sprayed front of my door and the hall way and front of neighbors door while no one was looking. About 20 minutes later when I walked in to my kitchen I saw 2 adult dead roach on the floor that I didn't even know that I had. The next day (which is today) my neighbors knocked on the door to show me the dead adult bedbugs that they found right along where I sprayed. So I can tell you this product works and I hope it will keep on working. From an experience one more thing I have to add, when you treat the infested area such as your mattress or couch, if you do not treat the carpet underneath at the same time, you are guaranteed to get re infestation, you have to steam it the way you steam your mattress and steam wash your whole carpet as soon as possible. The young bedbugs hide inside the carpet, you can't see them, but you will see them in your dirty water when cleaning your carpets. When washing clothes use Clorox and add cup of distilled vinegar to rinse water to kill all eggs, also add vinegar while steam cleaning carpets. Bed bugs are very psychologically draining, and depressing, I agree with most reviews on this site you have to use combination of products, I doubt if one product alone will get rid of them. This one works and reasonably priced!

Updating: Promise delivered!
By Nurten on October 28, 2012
Five days after the first application, I started wondering how come I can't even see just one bed bug, I know I have eliminated the adult ones but every evening I go around the infested part of the apartment with a magnifier glass and able to find the colorless little ones, before steaming them.(By the way not all colorless ones can be seen with a naked eye, they may appear as little as salt grain, but they move!) I had only used this product only along the base boards cracks and crevices and only very lightly wood part of the under the sofa and box mattress, being careful not saturating the fabric (while I was putting it I was not sure if it was going to stain or not at the time). This morning I turned over my sofa, (which is the most infested part in the apartment) I found over dozen bright red dead bed bugs along the wood casing, I would say they were the size of ranging from 2nd 3rd and 4th in star nymph,( I collected few and looked at them with a magnifier), very strangely, out of all the places, I also found few on the carpet that is front of the Bathroom, I had been seeing them while I was vacuuming but I had dismissed them as red lint from the towel. After finding the ones under the sofa, I again found some in that area and looked again , yes they were dead bed bugs. I did not use vinegar while steam washing that part of the carpet because I had ran out of vinegar, I will definitely go get another gallon and steam wash that part again. There you go, this product once again earned my FULL SEAL OF APPROVAL and I approve this massage!

Great Bed Bug Defense in Public Hallway
By Jade on March 5, 2013
All right, I have written about the wonders and joy of BedLam on the inside of my apartment to rid me of bedbugs, but FenvaStar EcoCap mixed with Gentrol is my secret weapon against re-infestation from my bug bombing infested neighbors next door on both sides of my apartment. I am in Chicago, and we are having major bed bug issues. In my building, we didn't get infested until 2 months ago and all of the neighbors on our side of the floor were getting bites. Needless to say, the new people that moved in 3 months ago moved in infested. But instead of contacting the building, they bug bomb each weekend and boy can you tell. Every weekend, around sunday night, the bed bugs start showing up on the walls in the hallway and under my door, and there I am on Sunday night spraying....and vacumming the pile of carnage by Monday morning. So after talking to my manager, getting quotes, they said they can't do anything unless they call to have them spray and they haven't called. Now imagine one neighbor on one side bombing and the other neighbor on the other side doing nothing...bed bugs coming in through the pipes. In comes FenvaStar EcoCap and Gentrol and my beloved plant pump sprayer. Sprayed my perimeter, under the sink, my whole front door, around the front door and in the corners of the wall. Took it one step further, snuck out at 2am to the hallway and sprayed my neighbors door on both sides, the perimeter and the hallway walls. Now I still hear my neighbors stomping and vaccumming but no more bugs in the hallway or in my bathroom sink, and barely anything under my front door..I just re-spray every 2 weeks. I finally let my manager in on what I was doing, and he loved it and is now recommending gentrol to his pest control company that sprays. Whew! But to this day, the neighbors haven't been treated so I'll be a loyal customer till somthing knocks these bedbugs out! Thanks! :)
It really worked!!!
By Iris on March 7, 2013
I have been hearing that New York had a bed bug problem but was not worried about it. I was sitting at my computer when I began getting bites on my arms. Mosquitoes love me and I was sure that was what it was. Shortly after my mother in law wanted her bed flipped. OH MY GOD,I have never seen anything like it. Big reddish brown bugs, all in the creases and folds of the mattress. My mother in law's room is next to mine. My computer desk is against the wall that separate the two rooms. I really didn't know what to do. Ever so slowly I began to get bitten in my bed. I could not sleep at night and I had strong reactions to the bites. I could not afford an exterminator so I got online and found this website. I did as the product instructed me too and the biting was reduced to about 95%. It says you can reapply in 2 weeks. So I did it again after about 20 days because I am a little afraid of chemicals. Now no bed bugs! I have such peace of mind now because this product is enough to apply 8x. So if they should come back I will be ready. I would like to add that I also mixed in Gentrol IGR Concentrate. Also the Chapin 1 Gallon Pump sprayer works really well.

March 6, 2013Jade from Chicago, Il asked:
QCan I use FenvaStar to treat the carpet for bed bug nymphs?
I'm currently living in an apartment complex and both apartments next to mine to the right and left of me are infested. The tenants are bug bombing and they are now coming through the drain pipes and fenvastar is working great to kill them there. I did a perimeter spray with FenvaStar, but I want to know if I can also treat the carpet? Not saturating it of couse due to the water but a light misting?
AThere really is no need to treat the whole carpet with Fenvastar for bedbugs. If the bedbugs do move through the walls into your apartment they will pass through the product that you applied around the perimeter and be killed. If you feel you must spray the carpets Fenvastar is labeled to be used as a broadcast spray over carpeted areas.
March 12, 2013Jr from Des Moines Iowa asked:
QCan I make half gallon instead of full gallon of FenvaStar if I think I wont use all of it?
AAbsolutely. You will simply use half of the recommended usage rate for the 1/2 gallon of water.
December 3, 2012Slide7 from New York, Ny asked:
QIs this product available to New York?
AFenvaStar Eco Cap is indeed New York approved and can be shipped to residents in New York.
February 5, 2013Jen from Bklyn, Ny asked:
QIs the FenvaStar EcoCap safe for mattresses?
Can you lightly spray a mattress and then cover with a bedbug cover?
AFenvaStar Eco Cap is not labeled to be sprayed on mattresses. Instead you should consider using Bedlam or Bedlam plus as they are both labeled specifically for this type of application.
