Finding out that you have a bed bug problem is bad enough, but then you have to decide which bed bug treatment you’re going to use to deal with it.
Google “natural bed bug treatment” and you’ll likely be greeted with hundreds of thousands of results, all from different bed bug eradication companies who claim that their products are the best.
Here at Bed Bug Patrol, we prefer to let the results do the “claiming” for us. We have hundreds of reviews from satisfied customers positively raving about the effectiveness of our natural bed bug treatments. Over the years, we’ve perfected our formula and expanded our collection, from simple bed bug sprays to premium mattress covers and steam cleaning machines. When we say that we have EVERYTHING you need to deal with your bed bug problem once and for all, we mean it!
Two of our most popular natural bed bug treatments are our Bed Bug Killing Spray and Bed Bug Powder, also known as diatomaceous earth. In this blog post, we’re going to look at the uses and benefits of each, so that you can choose the best product for your needs.
Understanding Contact and Residual Bed Bug Treatments
Before we delve into our discussion of natural bed bug treatments, let’s take a look at two terms that are commonly used in the professional pest control industry: contact and residual treatments.
Contact methods are bed bug treatments that work immediately but have little to no staying power. This means that they’re effective at killing a certain bug “on contact” but won’t do very much to bother bugs that may pass through the area at a later time. If you’ve ever used cockroach spray to kill a bug that was just sitting in the middle of the bathroom floor, you’ve had experience with a contact treatment.
Residual methods are bed bug treatment that remains effective for a period of time after they’re initially applied. These treatments effectively set up a fatal barrier that will stop bugs in their tracks even if you’re not around to apply it. “The length of time [in which a residual method remains potent] depends on the formulation (dust, liquid, etc.), the type of surface (soil, brick, wood, etc.) and the condition of the surface (wet, greasy, etc.),” explains Orkin.
Here at Bed Bug Patrol, we offer both contact and residual treatments for bed bugs. Let’s take a closer look at two of them.
How Do Bed Bug Spray Treatments Work?
Our Natural Bed Bug Spray is the perfect example of a contact bed bug treatment. We’re extremely proud of the fact that, though we only use the finest natural ingredients, our bed bug spray works on contact. This means that bed bugs generally die within 30 minutes to 24 hours of contact with Bed Bug Patrol's Natural Bed Bug Killer.
How Do Bed Bug Powder Treatments Work?
Our Natural Bed Bug Powder (dust) Treatment is the perfect example of a residual bed bug treatment. This powder is made using diatomaceous earth, a completely natural substance that’s harvested from the earth. Our Bed Bug Powder can be spread on carpet, rugs, furniture, windowsills, and any other area across which a bed bug may travel. It’s not toxic to humans but absolutely fatal to bed bugs. When they cross the powder boundary, they’ll dehydrate and die!
Get The Best Of Both Worlds With Our Natural Bed Bug Treatments
The best way to deal with a bed bug infestation is to choose both contact and residual treatment methods. That’s why we make and sell both bed bug spray and bed bug powder here at the Bed Bug Store.
