Is Demand CS better than Phantom and Cyzmic CS for bedbugs?
Cyzmic CS is the generic equivalent of Demand CS and works exactly the same for bedbug infestations. Phantom is a non-repellent insecticide that insects cannot detect and therefore readily walk over treated surfaces. Phantom is not a synthetic pyrethroid like Demand CS or Cyzmic CS and so far bedbugs have not shown any resistance to the active ingredient in Phantom. The one downside to Phantom is that it can take 7-10 days to kill the bedbugs that come into contact with treated areas and in that time period they can continue to bite and lay eggs. Demand CS and Cyzmic CS do have a faster kill rate than Phantom.
