Jim writes,

Does it continue to kill BB after it is dried?

Once you spray it on furniture or the edges of the apartment hardwood floors and cracks, it seems to dry quickly and fast and it never stays wet. How does it continue to kill Bed bugs and eggs the spray dies quickly? Or for continues killing, the dusts are better? I have 12 month old baby, so careful not to apply dusts which he could touch. Thanks


Yes, New Bedlam Plus Aerosol is a residual, meaning that it will keep the insecticide on the surface sprayed and continue to kill the insects that come in contact with it. This particular aerosol does not have to stay wet in order for it to work properly. We do recommend using Cimexa dust inside the wall voids for long term treatment. You want to make sure you are not using too much dust. A thin layer is perfectly fine inside the wall voids. The bed bugs will walk across it and dry out over time. It does take longer to work than an aerosol insecticide.
