How does Gentrol Aerosol IGR differ from BedLam? Should I use both at once?

Is this product sold in stores? If so, which? If not, why?


Gentrol IGR is an insect growth regulator which means it does not kill any bed bugs at all, or any pest for that matter.  An IGR disrupts the insects reproduction cycle and prevents it from maturing and reproducing thereby slowing down the life cycle and allowing you to kill an infestation quicker because they are not laying new eggs while you are treating the problem.  Bedlam is strictly an insecticide and does the killing.  You can spray them both in the same places at once and they will not harm each other or react with each other.  They both do different things.  None of our products are found in stores because we sell only professional products that are not sold over the counter.  We sell the same products the professional companies use.
