So if the room is 13 by 13 by 8 feet high how many Nuvan Strips do I need?

If I do not seal the bins, just hang a Nuvan strip above them, will I still eliminate bedbugs?

Answer:

You could only treat a large room like that if it was in the basement or a storage room.  It is not safe to treat a room in a house where people would be opening the door and be inside the room.  This is not the intended use for Nuvan Prostrips.  If this room is a storage area, you must make sure there is no ventilation in the room or windows and doors that are not sealed properly.  The room must be air tight and you must leave the room enclosed for 2 weeks without opening it.  You should evenly distribute the items as much as possible.  A 13 x 13 x 8 room is 1352 cubic feet.  The strips treat 100 to 200 cubic feet, so you would need at least 7 Nuvan Strips, but you will probably get better results if you use about 10 strips.  The strips should be arranged so they cover the room evenly.
