Is it okay to use the Nuvan strips in an unoccupied attic room?

I have a room in the attic of the house, it has 2 rooms connected to it one of those rooms is not in use and the other is a room closet. Can the strips be placed in the room and the two other rooms and then sealed off by duck tape for 2 weeks? If so will this kill bed bugs and how long after removing the strips in 2 weeks will the room portion have to remain unoccupied?


You cannot use the Nuvan strips to treat an entire room in a house as it is against the manufacturers instructions as specified by the product label. We understand that it is very tempting to look for and try shortcuts when dealing with bedbugs however shortcuts should never be taken as they will usually lead to poor results. We recommend using a Bed Bug Kit to treat these rooms.
