Pests don’t have a chance near Nuvan Prostrip. They are the only product containing DDVP available to the professional pest management market for residential use. Simply place this effective strip in an enclosed area and the slow-release vapor controls flying and crawling pests including flies, moths, roaches and more. It works continuously for up to four months with no odor and no mess.
How Nuvan ProStrips Work
Nuvan Prostrips are insecticidal strips constructed of resin plastic impregnated with DDVP (also called Dichlorovos) for control of crawling and flying pests. Nuvan prostrips work through vapor action: vapors emerge slowly over time and control pests exposed to the vapors. The active ingredient DDVP, or 2,2-Dichlorovinyl dimethyl phosphate, is a cholinesterase inhibitor that acts on a pest’s central nervous system to cause paralysis and death. When the foil packet is opened, the DDVP in the resin strips interacts with the moisture in the air. The active ingredient degrades quickly on surrounding surfaces; the strips slowly release the active ingredient so that a consistent level of DDVP is released into the treatment area. This level is high enough to kill target pests, while being low enough not to pose a risk to humans and other mammals.
Each Nuvan Prostrip treats 100-200 cubic feet of space for up to four months. After application, it may take several hours for the effective DDVP concentration to be reached in a treated area. Do not use in areas where people will be present for extended periods of time.
Ants, bed bugs, cockroaches, bees, mosquitoes, spiders, pantry pests
PESTS CONTROLLED: Flies, gnats, mosquitoes, moths, silverfish, cockroaches, spiders, beetles, earwigs, ants, fire ants, wasps, bed bugs, bedbug eggs, centipedes, fleas, crickets, sow bugs, scorpions, ticks, other flying and crawling insects.
Nuvan Prostrips provide effective, long-lasting control of flies in garbage cans and dumpsters, control of mosquitoes in catch basins, and control of fire ants, wasps and other insect pests which commonly infest enclosed utility boxes, conduits, junction boxes, enclosed electrical panels and motor control rooms. They are ideal for control of moths infesting bulk-stored raw grains, and flies, mosquitoes and gnats in horse barns, calf and hog parlors, poultry houses, dog kennels and dairy milk rooms. They may also be used in reptile houses and terrariums, boathouses, and to protect museum collections from moths and other flying and crawling insects.
Nuvan ProStrips for Bed Bugs:
Nuvan Prostrips are being used for bed bugs in a number of different situations. One use of the product is to take any infested equipment, radios, bags, books or other household items and place them in a large trash bag. Put one Nuvan Strip in the bag and leave the items enclosed for about 1-2 weeks.
Nuvan ProStrips Application Instructions
- Remove Nuvan Prostrips from sealed bag when ready to use. Place in desired location and out of reach of children and pets. Drafts, weather and other conditions may affect the performance, but treatment usually lasts 4 months. Each strips treats 100-200 cu. ft. of space. Use the appropriate number of strips for the space intended to be treated. Place strips uniformly in the area to be treated to facilitate a uniform treatment of the space. Record the date of installation and replace with a new, fresh, full-strength strip at the end of 4 months or when effectiveness diminishes.
- Do not use in food/feed areas of food/feed handling establishments.
- Within homes, use only in closets, wardrobes, and cupboards.
- If all the strips contained in the foil packet aren’t used, contain the remaining unused strips in the foil packet. Squeeze out as much air as possible from the foil packet, fold over the opened end at least twice and seal with tape to sufficiently protect your unused Nuvan Prostrips. The shelf life of Nuvan Prostrips may be diminished by as much as a month or more if left unused. It is not recommended to store Prostrips in zip lock plastic bags. The efficacy of Nuvan Prostrips is better protected in a foil-lined packet.
Each package contains 12 strips. Each strip treats 100-200 cubic feet for up to 4 months.
Standard Application Rates
- Use one strip to treat up to 100-200 cubic feet
- Use one strip per enclosed area, such as storage bins or trash bins with lids

Household, Industrial, and Commercial Uses:
Garages, Storage Units, Attics, Crawl Spaces, Boathouses: NUVAN PROSTRIPS kills flies, mosquitoes, gnats and other insects as listed for up to four (4) months. Remove from foil pouch and hang or place, out of reach of children and pets, in an open space of an enclosed area, away from windows.
Garbage Cans, Trash Dumpsters and Trash Receptacles: For control of flying and crawling pests, place the appropriate number of strips within the trash receptacles such as compactors, garbage chutes, garbage rooms, garbage bins, and others.
Animal Buildings: Use NUVAN PROSTRIPS to control pests in animal buildings including stalls, barns, milk rooms, kennels, pens, poultry houses, manure storage and other such areas. Do not contaminate milk. Place strip in manure collection areas such as beneath egg layers and broilers but do not allow strip to be placed in areas directly occupied by poultry.
For Control of Bedbugs and Bedbug Eggs: Nuvan Prostrips may be used to control crawling bedbug nymphs and adults exposed to product vapors for 48 hours. In difficult to treat areas, a minimum treatment time of 72 hours will provide better results. Strip may be used to control bedbugs that have entered various items in an infested structure including, but not limited to: electronics, appliances, footwear, art work, collectibles, plush toys, clocks, radios, wall hangings, telephones, computers, printers, mattresses, box springs, books, lamps, furniture and similar items. Place infested items in a suitable plastic bag, poly sheeting, container or room that is closed to contain the strip treatment. Plastic bags or poly sheeting should be at least 2 mm thick. Take care to avoid direct contact of the strip with the surface of items being treated. Seal items in the containment for a minimum of 48 hours to kill bedbug nymphs and adults. To kill any bedbug eggs, if suspected to be present, seal items in the treated space for seven days. Seal plastic bags and poly sheeting with as much air space around the treated article as is practical as this will enhance the exposure to the product vapors. When treatment is completed, remove treated items from the treatment in a well ventilated area and air out for a period of not less than two hours.
Nuvan Prostrips are not intended for use outdoors.

Finally Bed Bugs are Gone!!!
By Kathy in NJ on 05/24/2010
After trying everything and I mean everything, the only thing that got rid of them completely was the Nuvan Pro Strips. They saved me and my sanity. They truly are a life saver. I wish I would have tried them before everything else. I would have gotten rid of those miserable creatures quicker and saved some money in the process.

Nuvan ProStrips Used for Bedbugs
By Martha in Metairie, LA on 10/23/2010
My son spent a month in New York city, & brought bed bugs to his home in Miami. He had many items that could not be washed, heated, frozen, sprayed with insecticide, or covered with powder. The Nuvan ProStrips were great for those items. He put items in the 3ml contractor trash bags as recommended. He will continue to use the strips after travels to avoid re-infestation. We had been joking about bed bugs after reading about them, but believe me, they are nothing to joke about.

Nuvan Prostrips kills bedbugs!!!
By Brad in Rex, Ga on 12/11/2010
Worked as advertised. I put some in my small bathroom upstairs which we didnt use and in less than a week I saw five dead bedbugs. The bathroom isnt much bigger than a closet and I sealed the bottom of the door to keep the vapor in. I wish the EPA hadn't banned the foggers that used the same chemical in the 1990's. It would be awesome to fog your house with this stuff. The vapors are deadly to the bedbugs and they can't detect it. It would save people time, trauma and treasure if the EPA would just let us use the stuff that works!!! Brad

The Nuvan Prostrips are very effective and easy to use. The only caution is that you can't have them in a room that people are using.
Ni an strips
By Cindy in Pennsylvania on 10/13/2017
It was fabulous. I hung them in my closet and kept the door shut for 5 days, a little over but it was great. Moths all gone
Clears out all bugs...
By Jim in Rockwood TN on 09/30/2017
Even my pet lizard in the 20x12 shed had to move out when the bugs left. I hung one strip in the center of the shed and within a few days, crawling critters disappeared. Flying bugs stray in but don't stay. Same for a 8x8ft cinder block pump house, no bugs. Wish there were a mold strip, I spray it with maneb or daconil, works.
This product really works

So glad I found this company who ships these strips. I have been using them for 3 years and have no mice, spiders, stinkbugs, etc. No insects at all and if I do see one they are dead. I highly recommend this product.

Good for your car
By Tyrone in Cincinnati, Ohio on 02/27/2016
Great product, but there were no instructions. I found out online that you can put them in your car. It's best to do it when it's hot outside, but they work in the winter as well.

By Chris in Philadelphia, Pa on 01/05/2016
After eight months. Whole house heating which is very expensive and difficult because you have to take many things off your walls and out of your pantries. Professional spraying monthly. Powders, sprays, oils, and a lot of research. I know just about all there is to know about bedbugs their lifecycle how they reproduce how they eat when they eat how often they eat and how they hide. With the a platform bed, I was told to throw it away it was the only way because of too many hiding spaces even with heat. I had spent $3000 on a beautiful king size platform bed with drawers. It was breaking my heart to have to throw it away. I used a clear caulk to seal as many spaces as I could. And finally I bought Nuvan strips. Put them in every drawer and a large one in the room. After two and a half weeks of using Nuvan strips and sleeping in another room, we are finally after eight months sleeping in our bed for two weeks with no sightings. Which is the longest we've gone in eight months.

just started using.... hope they work
By Erica in ohio on 12/07/2015
These strips are suppose to be one of the holy grails. I think some people arent using them long enough or even correctly. I washed my clothes and dried for two cycles, then personal stuff sprayed, then bagged with some DE (diatomecous Earth), and put one or two in the Hefty Jumbo bags, got clear bags (Walmart/ Lowes) DE double bagged some heavy items. Anyways Ill update later because, that stuff will stay sealed off for some time like months, or over a year. I believe you have to give the product some time to work if you arent using heat.... BB are no quick fix or get rid of thingy. I ll update this down the line.

Ask a Question
QIf I use one Nuvan strip in an 10 by 7 storage space, will the other strips in the package stay good?
Or will they all offgas continually (not good since where will I be able to store the remaining strips?) and be less effective as time goes by? Is there a protective packaging that will keep the gas inactive until I open it?
AThe Nuvan ProStrips come in a thick foil zipper pouch that will keep the strips sealed and inactive until you are ready to use them.
QCan I place Nuvan strips in a plastic bag with clothing, then wash and wear clothing?
I rent my apartment and do not own my own washing machine or dryer. I am afraid to wear most of my clothing because of a bedbug infestation in my bedroom. I read about the application where household item and stuffed animals can be bagged for 2-4 weeks. I read under the first aid measure instructions for skin irritants that exposed clothing should be washed before reuse. Given the a fore mentioned information, I was wondering if I can bag the items with the strips then wash the items?
AYou can bag clothes with a nuvan strip and then wear them once washed, that is not a problem. However, it is worth mentioning that even without placing your clothes in a bag with a nuvan stip for 2 to 4 weeks, anything that will go in a dryer for about 15 minutes on even low heat will kill all stages of bed bugs instantly. So if you are going to wash them anyways and you didn't want to wait for 2 weeks before wearing something, you could wash and dry it and be assured there were no bed bugs when it came out of the dryer.
QI ordered the bed bug kit. What is the best way to treat books and shoes for bed bugs?
AThere are a couple of different ways to treat books and shoes. Heat treatments work quite well. Shoes and some books can be placed on the rack in your dryer for about an hour or so on high heat. This will kill the bedbugs and their eggs. You can also place books and shoes in large trash bags or rubber tubs that have a top with Nuvan Prostrips. Nuvan Prostrips utilize controlled release technology to slowly diffuse a deep penetrating vapor in enclosed spaces. The clean, odorless vapor is evenly distributed throughout the enclosed treatment area, killing visible and hidden insects on contact and preventing new insect infestations
QWhere can the Nuvan Prostrips can be used?
Can it be used in bedrooms? How does it work? If it is put in the bathroom would it kill any bed bugs that are in other parts of the apt or just the bathroom?
ANuvan Prostrips utilize controlled release technology to slowly diffuse a deep penetrating vapor in enclosed spaces for up to 4 months. The clean, odorless vapor is evenly distributed throughout the enclosed treatment area, killing visible and hidden insects on contact and preventing new insect infestations. Nuvan Prostrips can only be used in small enclosed areas such as closets (no air vents can be present), cupboards, boxes, bags or small storage areas. Nuvan Prostrips would not be appropriate for treating a bathroom. You would need to use bedbug sprays and dusts to properly treat a bathroom that may be infested. Please refer to our Bed Bug Kits for the appropriate products to treat a bedbug infestation.

QIf you are treating a closet or cupboard should you avoid opening it?
I'd like to treat a storage closet, my walk in, and a small coat size closet. Should I seal them up and avoid opening for a length of time? I can remove enough to survive until it is safe. I want to treat for long enough to be effective.
AYou want to allow the vapors in an enclosed area to build up to a level that will be lethal to the insects that your are trying to eliminate. Opening and closing the doors to these enclosed spaces may result in poor efficacy. Depending on the insect you are trying to eliminate and the amount of things in the space you will most likely need to keep the Nuvan strips in place for about 2-4 weeks. It is best to make sure things are loosely packed into the areas to insure that the vapors can adequately circulate through the items that need to be treated.

QThe Nuvan ProStrips were accidentally put in a container with personal hygiene items. Are they safe to use?
The strip was put in a container with items such as soaps, lotion, razor blades and feminine hygiene products. Would these items be safe to use if they were cleaned or aired out?
A If the Nuvan Prostrips were still wrapped, the products should be fine and can be used. If the Nuvan Prostrips were open, we would recommend discarding all items, such as soaps, razor blades and feminine hygiene products.

QAre the Nuvan ProStrips safe to use on beds and bed frames if I wrap them?
A Nuvan Prostrips can be used in the room where the beds or bed frames are if the room is sealed off completely. Nuvan Prostrips work best in confined spaces. You can wrap your bed/bed frame up, however, for the best results, we would recommend sealing off the room so that the insecticide can move through the treatment area.

QWill Nuvan ProStrips kill bed bugs in a rolled up rug that is in a plastic bag?
I have a large rug that may have bed bugs in it, which is currently rolled up and bagged in plastic to make sure bugs don't spread.
A It is possible that the vapors from the Nuvan ProStrips will not reach all of the hiding places that contain bedbugs if its large and rolled up. We would recommend that you place them in for a minimum of 2 weeks and then unroll, vacuum, steam treat, apply a product that will be safe for the rug and kill on contact such as Steri-Fab.

QDo I need to duct tape storage containers when using Nuvan ProStrips?
We are planning to use Nuvan ProStrips in all of the plastic storage containers we are moving our toys, books, collectables, etc. to as we prepare for a bedbug treatment by an exterminator. Do we need to duct tape the bins around the edges - the lids snap tight but, as with all plastic totes, there is a tiny gap between the lid and tub around the sides. Thank you!
A Yes, you can†tape†the storage containers when using Nuvan Strips. However if you get a container that locks or seals well,†it is not necessary.†

QIf I seal the packet as well as I can, is there a shelf life limit for Nuvan strips?
I would be using them to quarantine items purchased from flea markets and thrift stores before using them. Electronics, electric guitars, things like that. I might take a year to get through a package.
A Nuvan ProStrips†are best when used within 4 months of opening the pouch. †The foil packet may be resealed to prolong the useful life of unused Nuvan Prostrips. However, if not thoroughly sealed, the useful life of the remaining strips may be diminished.

QIs it safe to sleep in my room if I am using Nuvan ProStrips in the closet?
If I have one nuvan strip in my closet and put towels under the closet door to trap the vapor in my closet, would it be okay to sleep in my room?
A Nuvan ProStrips†can be placed in a closet, however the closet would have to remain closed for at least 2 weeks.† If you will be opening the closet then it will not work because the vapor will constantly escape.† You would be better off placing the items in your closet you would like to treat in a plastic container or bag and placing the strip inside also, and leave it unopened for 2 weeks. †

I have moths in a storage room that we barely use. The closet in that room has no door so I covered it with a sheet and a curtain but it's not completely sealed off.
A It is recommended to only apply the Nuvan ProStrips to confined, sealed areas, otherwise the vapors can escape the area.† Can you tell us the type of moths that you are targeting so that we can offer another solution that may be more effective for you?

QCan you use Nuvan Pro Strips along with the Roach Control Kit A to combat roaches?
We would like to use the Nuvan Strips to treat the home while it is sealed, completely, for 7 days. Following the 7 days we intend to air out the home areas for 72 hours before cleaning, then reoccupying the space. Would this be safe or not recommended?
A Although Nuvan ProStrips can be used to treat for roaches, they are designed to be used in small enclosed areas such as closets(no air vents can be present), cupboards, boxes, bags, or small storage areas. They are not labeled to be used in large open areas or living spaces.†
