Sterifab should be used as a supplemental product to a bed bug elimination program. We recommend using our bed bug kits to eliminate infestations. SteriFab alone will not eliminate a bed bug infestation as it leaves NO residual.
STERIFAB is so easy to use, with no dilution or prep required. Just spray STERIFAB on mattresses, bedding, furniture, carpets, vehicles, and any other inanimate surface to control bed bugs, fungus, germs, mildew, mold, and odor-producing bacteria. STERIFAB kills bed bugs fast and dries crystal clear in 15 to 20 minutes with absolutely zero messy residue. Available in pint and one gallon sizes.
This product also comes in Gallon sizes to refill the 16 oz spray bottle.
Shake Well Before And During Use.

How Steri-Fab Works
Sterifab acts as a contact kill on bed bugs and other insects using a combination of a synthetic pyrethroid insecticide and isopropyl alcohol. Sterifab also acts as a bacteriacide, fungicide, sanitizer, viricide, mildewcide, germicide, deodorant, bacteriostatic, and fungistatic. Because Sterifab does not leave any residual, it can be applied virtually anywhere. Simply shake well, then apply to desired treatment areas. Insect mortality is imminent for those contacted with Sterifab spray. Disinfection generally occurs within 10 minutes of spraying.
Steri-Fab Target Pests
Bed bugs, bed bug eggs, dust mites, lice, mildew, bacteria, fungus, odor-causing organisms
PESTS CONTROLLED WITH STERI-FAB: bed bugs, bed bug eggs, lice, louse eggs, ticks, fleas, dust mites, fungus, gram negative and gram positive bacteria, mold, mildew, odor-causing organisms; roaches, silverfish, sowbugs, centipedes, firebrats, mites; herpes simplex type 2, athlete’s foot fungus
Target Uses of Steri-Fab Spray
Conditions that require insecticides are often breeding grounds for many types of bacteria, fungus, germs, odors, and mildew. STERIFAB is a product unlike any other available in the world, boasting 11-way protection against not only insects but fungus, germs, and odors.
STERIFAB is a viricide, bactericide, sanitizer, fungicide, insecticide, germicide, deodorizer, disinfectant, mildewcide, bacteriostatic and fungistatic all in one, eliminating the need to keep many different single-use products on hand.
Sterifab is a useful disinfectant and deodorizer for areas with lots of personal traffic, such as waiting rooms, lobbies, conference rooms, patient rooms, day care centers, and bathrooms, as well as modes of transportation such as buses, taxis, and cars.
Sterifab is also an integral part of many bedbug treatments as it is one of few products proven to kill immature and adult bedbugs and bedbug eggs, and it can be used in sensitive areas such as mattresses and upholstered furniture. Sterifab is also sold in many of our popular Bed Bug Kits.
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Combination of synthetic pyrethroid, a dual quat, and isopropyl alcohol
Steri-Fab Application Instructions
Shake well before and during use. Surfaces and objects must be cleaned of gross filth before treatment. Spray surfaces and articles until thoroughly dampened and allow to remain wet for at least 10 minutes. If using a hand or power sprayer, keep approximately one foot from surface to be sprayed, and apply Sterifab over all surfaces until thoroughly dampened coverage is obtained. Allow upholstered or fabric surfaces to dry before use. Hard surfaces may be wiped dry after at least 10 minutes. Sterifab will have a slight alcohol smell when sprayed. Always read the product label completely before use.
A 16-ounce bottle of Steri-Fab will easily treat a mattress set or sofa. 1 gallon will treat 8-10 pieces of upholstered furniture or 5 sets of mattresses and box springs. Exact yield will vary with each use.
Standard Application Rates for Steri-Fab:
*Steri-Fab is ready-to-use and should not be diluted.
*10-12 oz. treats a typical sofa or couch.
*4-5 oz. typically treats a small upholstered chair or love seat.
Steri-Fab is for use in the following areas:

How do I use Steri-Fab to eliminate Bedbugs? To Eliminate ROACHES, BEDBUGS, ANTS AND SILVERFISH LICE and LOUSE EGGS: The infested areas should be sprayed thoroughly and repeatedly, directing the spray into all crevices, cracks, hiding places, seams, creases and folds. Allow Steri-Fab to dry about 15-20 minutes before using treated area. Because Steri-Fab was formulated not to be a residual product, you must make direct contact with insects and their eggs to be effective. Retreat every 7-10 days or as needed.
To kill FLEAS AND TICKS: The infested area should be sprayed thoroughly and repeatedly directing the spray into all animal quarters and surrounding areas. For best results remove and destroy old animal bedding prior to use. Do not spray animals. Animals should be treated with an appropriate flea and tick spray designed for their use before they reenter the treated area.
On hard surfaces for sanitizing, deodorizing: Apply Sterifab on all surfaces until a moist surface it obtained and allow to remain wet for at least 10 minutes.
Sterifab is not designed for outdoor use.

Extra Tips for Using Steri-Fab

*Before applying, be sure that the nozzle is set at fine spray.
*Always shake well before and during application.
*Do not apply directly to people or animals.
*Do not apply directly to clothing, shoes, or other garments that will be worn.

This stuff works!
By Annie on September 14, 2007
Wow! Does this stuff work. New York City is experiencing a resurgence in bedbugs due to people traveling all over the place, and I found the tell-tale bites on my legs. Yikes! I saved myself over $200 from the local pest control "consultation" by contacting Do My Own Pest Control. They were helpful, and within days I had my first shipment of Steri-Fab. The treatment is simple, effective, and best of all-NO odor. Using this product is as simple as cleaning your bedroom-dust, take the pictures off the wall, strip the mattress, and spritz away! I haven't had a bite in over three weeks and there is no residue or after-smell. Now I can just vacuum, dust a bit, and everything is clean and good to go! This is a great product and a fabulous website. Everyone loves a good buffet, but with Steri-Fab, you don't have to be one, LOL. Thanks again!

Easy, effective, and affordable
By Victoria in Philadelphia, PA on August 20, 2009
When I found bed bugs, I promptly bought box spring covers and the mattress covers and washed all sheets and pillows in hot water. Unfortunately, bed bugs are not limited to beds. And in the days since I had discovered them, they had moved to my sofa, as well. I ordered Steri-Fab and www.DoMyOwnPestControl.com shipped it immediately. I sprayed the sofa, area rugs, and the bed frame itself. Seven days later, I repeated the process. Not a single bite since. I am always going to keep some Steri-Fab on hand now, just in case.

Have used this product one time so far and it seems to work very well, did have a strong alcohol smell, we left the apartment after we sprayed and when we returned 6 hours later the smell was completely gone. Haven't seen any bed bugs on the couch or chair, we will spray again in about 3 weeks to make sure the bugs are gone. Didn't stain the couch fabric.

I was desperate to find a solution for my daughter's bed bug problem. She was in the dorm and could hardly sleep waking up with bug bites or feeling them crawling on her at night. I found your website and after reading the reviews sent her the 160z bottle. It worked! I then ordered the larger size and the organic product. That helped her to sleep and finally finish the school year. I appreciated the fact that you had an MSDS so I was able to read about the product prior to ordering. You were great with shipping and delivery. I will definitely recommend your company to my friends.

By Jen in Lake Forest, CA on January 26, 2011
I was getting bites overnight but I wasn't sure if it was fleas from my dog or bed bugs. I had never had bedbugs before and thought I might have brought them home with me from a trip to the cabins. I finally decided to search for something online to help treat this issue when I came across this product. I ordered it and used it all over my bed/mattress and floor. I stopped getting bites! It worked great. I had to do it again a week later though. I got one new bite the following week and remembered that the instructions did recommend re-spraying a week later. So far so good!

I Sprayed Directly On Them!!!
By Xander in Minneapolis, Minnesota on July 8, 2015
The first two bottles I purchased I went through one bottle in two to three days. There were hatchlings from the bed bugs. The adult bed bugs were killed on contact. The hatchlings were really small, I could not see them. So, I am going to order another gallon. The product is 60% alcohol and has a strong alcohol odor. I spray my bed BEFORE I go to work. It truly helps when I get home.

By Geraldine in Garfield Hts. OH on December 5, 2014
this is a very good product to use for bedbugs- it really works, but you have to be consistent- we have used about 5 gallons of this product in the last 10 months. and following the instructions, filling in cracks, painting and spraying constantly, we have finally conquered the bedbug problem!!!

August 4, 2010 Jill asked:
QDoes Steri-fab kill on contact?
I willl be staying in a hotel in November, and I would like to know if it will kill bedbugs on contact. I don't want to stay there in a room with them until they die, and I don't want to bring them home with me either.
ASteri-Fab does indeed kill on contact. Many of our customers (and all of our staff) use Steri-Fab when traveling and staying in hotels. We always recommend pulling the sheets off of the bed and closely checking the mattress and looking behind head board and in the cracks and crevices of the headboard for evidence of bedbugs. Never put luggage on the bed or on the floor.
March 5, 2010 Carol asked:
QCan Steri-Fab be sprayed on my clothing and shoes?
December 6, 2009 Ladi asked:
QCan I add STERIFAB to my laundry?
ANo, Steri-Fab would not be effective once diluted with water. If you are treating for bed bugs, a normal wash and dry cycle in hot water and high heat will kill all stages of bed bugs including the eggs without having to add anything special to the wash.
May 25, 2010 Melissa asked:
QIs Steri-Fab sold in stores?
Is SteriFab sold in stores?
ANo, Steri-Fab is considered to be a professional product and is not sold over the counter. It can only be purchased at professional pest control supply stores such as ours. We always have Free Shipping and we ship your order out quickly.
August 20, 2010 Amy asked:
QDoes Steri-Fab continue to work after it dries?
If so, how long? Do the bugs that crawl on the dried surface that was sprayed die? Does it repel bedbugs?
ASteri-Fab only works while it is wet. You must make direct contact with the bedbugs and bedbug eggs for Steri-Fab to be effective. While there may be some repellency from the Steri-Fab, it is not labeled as a repellent.

Arlene from New York asked:
QHow much Steri Fab will I need for three bedrooms and a living room and should I spray in bathroom and kitchen?
A For the area that you are wanting to treat we wold recommend purchasig at least a gallon. Coverage from a gallon of Steri-Fab is hard to gauge as it all depends on the heaviness of your spray and how often you want to spray. Typically, a gallon will treat about 8-10 pieces of upholstered furniture or 5 sets of mattresses and box springs. Yes, you may spray the kithen and bathrooms. Steri-Fab is a contact kill that does not leave a residue or residual killing power.

Moe from Ny asked:
QWhat is the best product to get rid of bedbugs and keep them away ????
i been treated several times by a professional exterminator , after he sprayed the whole apartment i seens that worked , but after 2 or 3 month i got bugs again .. i dont find a lot but 1 or 2 to raise my immediately attention by the way as far as i know the used sterifab around the apartment and tempo inside the walls .... thanks
A We recommend using a bedbug kit. The Bed Bug Kit #2 provides you with the professional products necessary to do a complete bed bug treatment in your home. This kit has just the right balance of products to treat at least two rooms completely, plus enough to do the several follow-up treatments that are crucial to success. Unlike other kits you may find, the Do My Own Pest Control kits contain the most effective products available based on the most current research. This kit contains 1 x 8 oz. bottle of FenvaStar EcoCap concentrate, 1 x 4 oz bottle of Cimexa Dust, 1 x Bellow Hand Duster dusting tool, 2 x 17 oz. cans of Bedlam Bed Bug Spray, and 1 pint of Steri-Fab. It is very important that you take the time to educate yourself on all of the places bedbugs can hide and all of the labor that is involved in preparing a room for a bedbug treatment. Please take a few moments to read over our Bedbug Guide to get a general idea of what needs to be done. We also recommend that you encase all of your mattresses and boxsprings withProtecta Bed Encasements as mattresses and boxsprings can be very difficult to impossible to treat because of all of the seams, folds, cracks and crevices.

Nickole from Flint Michigan asked:
QWhat do I do if I get Steri-Fab on my skin or in my hair?
A If you get Steri-Fab on your skin or hair we would recommend taking off any contaminated clothing and rinsing skin and hair immediately with plenty of water for 15-20 minutes. Then we would recommend contacting poison control or physician for treatment advice.
January 31, 2015
Eva from Austin asked:
QWill Steri-Fab kill fleas? Is it harmful to use around my cat and dog?
Steri-Fab is labeled to kill fleas that it makes contact with. Sterifab is meant to be used to treat your pets environment where fleas or ticks could harbor such as your pets crate or dog bed so would be safe around pets. They should be out of the area while you are doing the treatment until it dries. SteriFab alone will not eliminate a flea infestation as it leaves NO residual we would recommend using our Indoor Flea Kit.
January 11, 2015 Lesley asked:
QCan you spray steric fab on wood?
A Sterifab is a contact kill and does not leave a residual behind, therefore should be fine to spray on wood. We recommend to a small spot test to see if any discoloration occurs.

Robert from New Boston, Tx asked:
QWe need a fogger that will kill mites and can be used indoors/ household.
A We normally do not recommend fogging for mites as an effective treatment. It is important to be absolutely sure you are actually dealing with bird mites. Have the suspected bird mite identified by a reputable source, such as your local cooperative extension office or a reputable pest control operator. Treatments will vary for different pests. Treatment for say bedbugs is much different than the treatment for bird mites. If you do indeed have bird mites, you must first find the source of the infestation, usually a bird nest or a dead bird on or in the home. Removal of the infested nest or bird and a thorough cleanup is necessary. For treatment in the home, we recommend you frequently vacuum all carpet and upholstery and dispose of the bag or vacuum contents in a sealed bag outdoors. Spray Sterifab on couches, chairs and other upholstered furniture where you may spend time resting. Use MotherEarth Dust in all cracks and crevices around the perimeter of the room. Apply a thin coat of MotherEarth dust to rugs and carpets. Rake (not sweep) nap back and forth, causing dust to enter rug or carpet. Let product sit overnight. Repeat application as necessary and vacuum every 3 - 4 days for effective control. MotherEarth dust does not have a fast knockdown, it can take several days for insects to die after they contact the dust. Onslaught can be used for a faster knockdown. Thoroughly apply as a fine particle broadcast spray using a hand pump sprayer to infested rugs and carpets and other cracks and crevices around the perimeter of each room. Put all clothes through the dryer on high heat to help kill mites and their eggs.We have had many customers use the above recommendations with great success. Most customers report that it can take several months to get rid of all of the mites. Finding and removing the source of the infestation is very important and is the key to getting rid of the mites for good.
