When it comes to spraying for bed bugs, it’s important to choose the right product. Not all insecticides are suitable for indoor use, and many have dangerous side effects. Never use insecticides designed for outdoor or agricultural use indoors. Ensure that any product you buy is labeled as effective against bed bugs, and follow the instructions on the label. Also, don’t spray more than necessary.
Before spraying your bed, look for areas where bed bugs can hide. They can hide behind electrical switch plates, baseboards, and cracks in plaster. Also, look for electronics and appliances that may house bed bugs. If possible, place these items in a Nuvan Strips bag. You should also treat the fabric of your clothing, as these can harbor bed bugs.
Bedbug sprays are safe to use on general household items, but they’re not safe to use on mattresses and bedding. The alcohol-based insecticides used to kill bedbugs only kill the bugs that come in contact with them. But because these pesticides can’t reach these hidden areas, they won’t eliminate the infestation.
Another good option for treating bed bugs is using a natural insecticide. You can use a natural product such as plant oil to kill the bugs. It’s safe to use around children and pets, and it also works effectively against bed bugs and their eggs.
