Will Gentrol make bedbugs worse?

I do not see the Gentrol in your kits for bed bugs. I have heard it may not work on them. Is that why you don't have it in your kits? I have heard it can make them worse? How long will the Gentrol that I sprayed be in effect for the bedbugs?


There simply has not been enough time since the outbreak of bedbugs for proper studies to be done on the long term effect of Gentrol on bedbugs. There have been no studies published that support Gentrol making bedbug infestations worse and we have not had any reports to that effect either. Once Gentrol has been applied, it will be effective for bedbugs for about 2-4 weeks. We do not have Gentrol in our kits at this time because we feel that your money can be better spent on products that we know for sure will work.
