Is there an insecticide that kills bed bug eggs or do you have to wait until hatched and retreat?
There are a few insecticides that claim to kill bedbug eggs. Phantom Aerosol, Sterifab and Bedlam. You should note that those insecticides that claim to kill bedbug eggs must be directly sprayed on the eggs and they are only about 75%-85% effective at actually killing the egg. You will still be required to do retreatments every 7-10 days until you do not receive any more bedbug bites and also see no further evidence that they are active (blood stains, feces or cast skins).
