i just discovered a bed bug infestation in my home. i bombed sprayed. what else should i do?
When treating for bed bugs, we normally recommend our Bed Bug Kits depending on how many rooms you are treating. As an example, our Bed Bug Kit #2 will have enough product to treat two rooms multiple times. Steri-Fab is a contact kill and can be used on furniture, carpet, etc. This will be used to kill bed bugs when/if you see them. Bedlam Insecticide will be used to treat your mattress directly. You will spray the tufts, seams and folds of the mattress(es). This should not be broadcast across your mattress. You will do this treatment every 10-14 days until you do not see activity for 30 days. It also comes with Cimexa Dust. This will be used as a preventative inside your wall voids. You will take off the light plate switches and electrical outlets and use the hand duster to do a couple of puffs per hole. Make sure you are not using too much dust because the bugs will not walk across it. This product dries them out. It can be reapplied every 7-8 months depending on the severity of the issue. Cimexa Dust can remain active for up to 10 years if left undisturbed. The kit also comes with Temprid SC. This is an insecticide that you will use along the baseboards, cracks and crevices. This will be done every 10-14 days as well until you do not see activity for 30 days.
The process with bed bugs could be a long one but will be worth it in the end when you no longer have pests. Please let us know if you have any additional questions. We do also have a Bed Bug Guide for you to take a look at.
