How 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?


Bedlam 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.
