It Kills, but!,
This review is from: Bed Bug Treatment Killer With Free Bed Bug Monitor Trap (Now With Latest Technology Scentrel Candle) (Personal Care)
This is spray that does kill bed-bugs but does take a bit of time to take effect. Unfortunately it will not get rid of any Bed-Bug infestation as this is a direct contact spray! This will not get rid of unreachable or hidden BBs, and certainly no effect on BB eggs - which by destroying the larvr is the only way to stop them multiplying and re-infesting. PLEASE NOTE: Using the FOG FUMMERS supplied with this package will only cause the BED BUGS to hide deeper in the smallest of places, or even worse spread them to other areas, inc other rooms. Doing this will make it harder to kill these parasites and even detecting them could become very much harder, esp with the Nymphs(bed-bugs at early stages) due to them being almost colourless, very tiny, and extremely flat...Sadly even if one or two bed-bugs are seen/caught or found then killed, others could be easily hiding or lurking in the tiniest of places without you ever knowing that they're there. Bed Bugs can be extremely notoriously hard to find or see making this product useless for eggs and unseen BBs.
Having had these annoying parasites myself, its a good idea to look into them to understand how these horrible bugs live and survive for long periods. This will help you understand the treatment that may be needed or required to completely eliminate them. The best and most efficient way to get clear of these parasites, for me, is by PROFESSIONALS. I tried all sorts of methods from Poison Pesticide Sprays, to Fog Fummers, and even Diatomicus Earth(this is excellent but you need to know how and where to spread this as this dries them out slowly). Unfortunately there is no easy way, esp with home products. This is due to how these parasite live, breed, hide, sleep, infest, and feed that can make them very difficult to get rid off. Without the right effective and sometimes repeated treatment that maybe required, you could make the situation a lot worse doing it with DIY: If BBs are not caught early infestation can spread quickly. You need to look out for early tell tale signs: Live Ones, Faecal Spots(small black spots that look like pen-tip spots), Shed Skins or Live Bugs. If hidden and unable to reach bed-bugs with this spray, BBs will simply continue to multiply if you don't kill the eggs - which this product wont do and with females laying upto 5 eggs a day! Unless you find all the eggs and females this treatment will not resolve the clearing of bed bugs for long. For efficiently eliminating these parasites 'professionals' are probably the best method: Its highly recommended to do your research and use a trusted/recommended pest control business as unfortunately a lot have jumped on the BB bandwagon for quick money by promising cheap and effective treatments - BUT DON'T DO THE JOB!!! DO DO THE RESEARCH BEFORE HIRING!!! Professionals should check properly for any infestation, use proper bed-bug treatment, two treatments might be required (usually 2nd treatment after two weeks - though this can depend on how its treated). Some will offer a bed-bug free time guarantee or free treatment if they re-occur within that time period given, but some are also based on false promises! Do check if they are members of PEST CONTROL INDUSTRY BODY for extra piece of mind. Also do be weary of council treatments as they may be cheap but not exactly effective, with also no real emphasis on effectively understanding the individual case and managing the problem. Its usually the same procedure with councils as they simple spray the bed with some medi-core pesticide then repeat with the next client as they seem more concerned with quick and more jobs due to cheap call outs. Its also a good idea, esp. in flats or joined apartments, to see if the problem could be spread from there.
