Ryan from San Jose, California writes,

Is Bedlam a non-repellent like Phantom? Or will the bugs not come into contact with it?

Using bedlam for a bedbug problem and I am wondering if the residual will just keep the bugs at bay until the effect is gone or if bedbugs will walk through it. I guess what I'm asking is if the bugs know that the bedlam spray is there.


Bedlam is not a non-repellent product. You should try to make direct contact with as many of the bedbugs and their eggs as possible when treating with Bedlam. The repellent nature of the product, which would make the bedbugs try to avoid the treated areas, usually dissipates enough for bedbugs to cross treated areas after a day or so.
