STERI-FAB is so easy to use, with no dilution or prep required. Just spray STERI-FAB on mattresses, bedding, furniture, carpets, vehicles, and any other inanimate surface to control bed bugs, fungus, germs, mildew, mold, and odor-producing bacteria. STERI-FAB 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.
Comes in Gallon sizes to refill the 16 oz. spray bottle.

How Steri-Fab Works
Steri-Fab acts as a contact kill on bed bugs and other insects using a combination of a synthetic pyrethroid insecticide and isopropyl alcohol. Steri-Fab also acts as a bacteriacide, fungicide, sanitizer, viricide, mildewcide, germicide, deodorant, bacteriostatic, and fungistatic. Because Steri-Fab 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 Steri-Fab 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. STERI-FAB is a product unlike any other available in the world, boasting 11-way protection against not only insects but fungus, germs, and odors.
STERI-FAB 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.
Steri-Fab 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.
Steri-Fab 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. Steri-Fab 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 Steri-Fab 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:
No label restrictions as far as specific types of institutions. For use on surfaces and articles including cracks, crevices, seams, creases, and folds of mattresses or other furniture, rugs and carpets, animal quarters and surrounding areas, restroom surfaces, non-porous and non-food contact surfaces in kitchens, other non-porous surfaces.
Shake well before and during use.
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.
* Steri-Fab is not designed for outdoor use.
- Convenient, ready-to-use formulation
- Steri-Fab can be applied on virtually any surface
- Steri-Fab is listed as an approved treatment for second-hand furniture in many states
- Steri-Fab contains a unique crystal tracer that can be observed with a highly magnified UV light
- Leaves no residue on treated surfaces
Extra Tips for Using Steri-Fab
- Steri-Fab does not leave any residual, so it should be used in conjunction with residual products for pest control.
- 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 09/14/2007
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 08/20/2009
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.

By Jen in Lake Forest, CA on 01/26/2011
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 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 G.j.saleh in Washington, DC on 03/29/2016
Good product. I received the recommendation from my local/city Health Dept. I've ordered a larger supply for safe keeping for preventive measures.

I had bed bugs and fleas, and this was a great addition that I could use right on my bedding and other furniture. Other products that I bought before this one, had strong odors, and made me sick. I recommend Steri-fab to anyone that needs assurance there's nothing crawling on them at night.

Might be helpful
By Erica in ohio on 12/07/2015
I think this helped to get the bugs out of my clothes and off me for a moment, and to get them cleaned then Hefty Jumo ziplocked clothes after washing. Not sure what other uses it could have worked for, at the time. Has a strong odor, I would use a mask and ventilate so often until your task is done.
Steri-Fab Insecticide Disappointment
By Eric in Long Beach, CA on 11/16/2015
Product has limited value due to the need to spray and contact bugs directly. Its high alcohol content means that is dries (evaporates) quickly. I gave it a low rating because the sprayer broke after a few pulls on the trigger and the bottle had a small hole on the top that leaked some of the contents out. I bought two bottles and will need to get another sprayer for the second bottle. I recommend using other products.
We apologize Sterifab did not work up to your expectations. We do say on the page "Steri-Fab should be used as a supplemental product to a bed bug elimination program. We recommend using our bed bug kits to eliminate infestations. Steri-Fab alone will not eliminate a bed bug infestation as it leaves NO residual" to make sure customers are aware this is for direct spraying only. We are happy to reimburse you for the amount of product lost or ship you a replacement. Please contact our office at 866-581-7378 or email@example.com. We look forward to hearing back from you soon. We appreciate your business very much!

Good product, wish the bottles were better
By Hanson in San Jose, CA on 10/08/2015
The Steri-Fab liquid itself is a good product, but the foil cap that seals the 16 oz and 1 gallon bottles is difficult to remove completely, leading to spillage when trying to refill. The liquid runs down the sides of the bottle no matter how carefully you try to refill. I ended up having to use an intermediate cup with a spout to fill from the 1 gallon to the 16 oz. Furthermore, the spray pump on the 16 oz failed shortly before I'd used up the original contents of the bottle. Thankfully DoMyOwnPestControl has excellent customer service and they sent me a replacement!

Ask a Question
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.
QCan Steri-Fab be sprayed on my clothing and shoes?
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.
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.
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.

QA spray bottle of Steri-Fab spilled in my car. How long before it is safe for my child to be in the car again?
A Steri-Fab should be completely dry and the vehicle should be ventilated properly prior to allowing your baby inside.

QWhat can I apply to the entire carpet for bedbugs?
A There is not a need to apply anything over the entire surface of carpet or hard surfaced floors for bedbugs. They travel from the wall voids and cracks and crevices (baseboards, etc). Steri-Fab is safe for carpets but you will want to treat the room with the products from one of our Bedbug Control Kits. Please take a few moments to review our article on How to Get Rid of Bedbugs. Please let us know if you need anything else or if you would like to place an order. We are happy to help!

QCan Steri-Fab cause nerve damage if ingested?
08/11/2015 Tahise from Brooklyn, Ny
QIs it safe to sit on your furniture after Steri-Fab has been sprayed?
Should I cover the furniture with a sheet?
A It is safe to sit on furniture after Steri-Fab has been sprayed as long as the application has had time to dry, usually 15-30 minutes. You should always apply the product in accordance with the product label.

QWill Sterifab rid the home of cat parvo or panleukopenia?
Panleukopenia is a viral disease, basically the cat version of dog parvo. I have read that the home must be thoroughly cleaned to get rid of it. People usually use bleach but I want something that I can spray, will this product work?
A Sterifab is not labeled to be applied to animals. We would recommend to speak with the Vet to see which products will help treat this rapid virus. One of the most thorough cleaning products we sell is Nisus DSV. Please see the product label for complete use instructions.

QHow much Steri Fab will I need for three bedrooms and a living room and should I spray in bathroom and kitchen?
AFor 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.

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
AWe 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.

I'm interested in ordering a larger amt. but need 2 sprayers

QWhat do I do if I get Steri-Fab on my skin or in my hair?
AIf 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.
