Q&A Home

Antonio from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma writes,

How effective is Equil Lambda in killing and controlling bed bugs?

Once applied how does it work? Does it leave a residual that continues to kill the bugs and how often should I retreat using it?


Equil is labeled for controlling bedbugs and will leave a residual that can last up to 10 days for bedbug control. We do not recommend that you use any product by itself for bedbug control as bedbugs can build resistance to products. Instead you should be using a dust insecticide and an aerosol with the Equil in a bedbug treatment plan. Please take a look at our bedbug kits as they contain the products we recommend for bedbug control.
