    Great Product! Gets rid of mild bed bug problems.

    By Bedlam on 01/17/2009

    I had a mild infestation due to an adjoining apartment. After reading up on bed bugs I thought I would never get rid of them. But after about two months of using BedLam Insecticide to treat spot areas and furniture they were gone. I also have a dog and he did not get sick. The residual effect also kills other bugs you didn't even know you had. Remember to put vaseline or mineral oil around bedpost and furniture legs to keep them from returning. Wash and bag all clothes while you are doing treatment. Use gloves when spraying and keep pets away until dry.

    Great Product

    By Greg on 12/22/2010

    Verified Purchase

    After previously paying almost $600 for 3 professional treatments, my bed bug problem was gone for only about 1 month until it returned. I bought 3 cans of this and the Drione dust to treat my one bedroom condo on my own. Rather than wash everything and bag everything up this time during treatment, I simply sprayed this all on the sides of my mattress (which still had an encasement from months earlier), crevices and around the baseboards of my bedroom walls and couch (basically anywhere my fiance and I would sleep). I figured they have to eat and would come into contact with the Bedlam when they came to feed. After the first treatment, we never saw another bug and my fiance never got another bite. It has been 3 months. Every 14 days I emptied out a can of the bedlam under my couch cushions, around bed and baseboards. Also sprinkled the Drione around baseboards and in couch. After 1 treatment the problem was solved, but did 2 follow up treatments just to be safe. I keep 2 cans of these in my closet just in case we notice more bites. Also, domyownpestcontrol.com is an extremely reliable service, with very fast (and free) shipping. Will never use a professional pest control service again!

    Bedlam did the job, but with some effort

    By Cynthia on 10/25/2009

    Verified Purchase

    My old apartment became infested with bedbugs, but the management didn't treat the apartment aggressively enough. When I moved to a new apartment, some of the bugs came with me, much to my dismay. I have applied Bedlam thoroughly to my bedroom floor, baseboards, and closets 10 times over a 3-month period. I think that I have finally gotten rid of the bugs. I had read that Bedlam is effective against bedbug eggs as well, which I'm hoping is the case. I have invested in a bedbug mattress cover and am carefully inspecting my bedding for any signs of bugs. I have also been keeping my clothes in plastic bags until I'm sure they're gone. I would recommend this product, but be consistent and diligent. I have also applied MotherEarth D to my bedroom floor using the hand duster. I continue to keep a very thin layer of MotherEarth D on my hardwood floor in the bedroom. I also used the Gentrol IGR aerosol twice, which I hoped help, but I'm not sure how effective it truly was. My only regret is that I didn't buy more Bedlam to begin with (since it is cheaper if you buy more from the get go).

    Bed Bugs

    By Adrienne on 06/14/2010

    Verified Purchase

    Just wanted to write a great review for the Bed Bug Kit which included this product. We had bed bugs in our bed it was horrible and disgusting. We called a pest company and they wanted 800.00 dollars. I bought this kit from DoMyOwnPestControl and it worked. It has been a month and we are bed bug free. But I do recommend buying the bed bug kit since these bugs live in woodwork and drapes so just this product alone works better with the kit. I now just keep this in my bedroom and spray every week to be sure. Thanks to Do My Own Pest I have saved 700.00. Thanks

Q
Can Bedlam Bed Bug Aerosol Spray be used on bed sheets?

The Bedlam Insecticide instructions say to spray on garments - can we spray this product directly on our sheets before going to bed - perhaps after allowing it to dry for about 10-15 minutes and then placing another clean sheet over it?
A

We would not recommend spraying your sheets. Bedbugs do not live on the sheets and this would not be a good use of the product. Instead, concentrate on treating the mattress, headboard, footboard, rails and surrounding areas. Allow the Bedlam to dry on the mattress first and then sleep on a clean sheet that is over the treated area.

Q
difference between bedlam spray and bedlam plus

What is the difference between the bedlam plus for bed bugs and the regular bedlam spray. The plus is more expensive. Is it a stronger grade? Longer residual? Or are they identical?
A
The Bedlam Plus has all of the ingredients from regular Bedlam plus an extra added ingredient called imidacloprid which makes it work much better for folks that are dealing with pyrethroid resistant strains of bedbugs. Bedlam plus does not last longer than regular bedlam.

Q
How long does Bedlam aerosol last?

We have an infestation so far, in our bedroom, trying to keep them contained in one room and we have sprayed adjoining rooms as well. However, we are spraying nearly daily and still they show up at night..last night's count just five. We are still laundering and washing and steaming our clothes. Have also steamed the floors, all wood of course. Do we have to spray the mattress cover daily...how do we find the eggs?
A
Bedlam will typically last for 6 weeks under normal conditions.  The bedbugs that walk over the area will die, but they will not die instantly.  It can take up to a few hours for them to die, so you will still see them.  The only product that we have that kills on contact is Steri-Fab and even still, contact means it takes minutes, not instantly.  If you have only used Bedlam, you may want to use some of the other products found in our bed bug kits.

Q
What is the best treatment for carpets when treating for bed bugs?
A
Bed Bugs actually do not normally hang out on the carpets and usually the carpets would be the last place to treat.  Most treatments are directed in cracks and crevices, around the bed, baseboards, and harborage areas where bed bugs like to hide.  You can use Bedlam on carpets as well as Steri-Fab.
