If you have a bed bug infestation, you might be wondering, “Will Lysol kill bed bugs?” The answer depends on the severity of the infestation and the needs of the home. While Lysol is safe to use, you must thoroughly spray the area to kill bugs and their eggs. This includes the seams and crevices in your mattress. Be thorough and follow the directions on the label carefully.
First, you should read the Lysol ingredient label. This will ensure that the spray does not ruin the surface or deteriorate the upholstery or fabric. In addition, Lysol should only be used on the infested area. The spray is very effective if you can spray it directly onto the bugs.
Another reason not to use Lysol is the potential for burns. Lysol is a powerful aerosol product, and the fumes can burn your eyes. It is also highly toxic to pets and children, so use caution while using it. Make sure to keep the room well ventilated so that the vapors don’t linger too long.
Bleach is also a common household chemical that can kill bed bugs. Whether you buy Clorox or generic brands, they work just as well. The key is to use a product that targets the bed bugs and their eggs. Lysol also kills roaches by suffocating them as it penetrates their spiracles. You should also keep your bedroom as clean as possible so that bed bugs cannot hide from it. Another good option is to use a lavender-scented insecticide to repel the bugs.
