    Q
    In what chemical class is Bedlam Insecticide Aerosol?
    A

    Please refer to the SDS for details on the specific chemical makeup and properties of Bedlam Insecticide Aerosol. The primary active ingredient is Sumithrin or D-phenothrin, a synthetic pyrethroid. Bedlam also contains MGK, a synergist to help with fast knockdown that is often added to natural pyrethrins or pyrethroids.

    Q
    Why am I sill seeing bedbugs om my sheets/
    I purchased the bedlam spray and the sterifab, also the boxspring and mattress encasements. Last night I saw two bedbugs on my sheets. Aren't the encasements suppose to keep the off of my bed?
    A

    Encasements do not keep bedbugs from crawling onto your bed. They keep the bedbugs from infesting your mattress and boxspring and the encasements make it easier to inspect your bed for signs of bedbugs. You should move your bed away from the walls if at all possible and make sure you are treating all of the cracks and crevices in your room every 7-10 days until you do not see signs of bedbugs for at 30 days. We have linked our Bedbug Guide below and also our Inspection Guide so you can see what is needed to get rid of bedbugs.

    Q
    Does Bedlam actually kill dust mites?
    I've been told nothing in the US will kill them and that everything will only remove allergens. Does this product actually kill the dust mites themselves? If so, is it safe to use in a bedroom where a baby or pregnant woman sleeps?
    A

    Bedlam will kill just about any insect that is sprayed with the product. Bedlam is safe to apply in a room used by infants and pregnant women when the product label is followed. We also recommend that you use Protecta Bed mattress, boxspring and pillow encasements to eliminate dust mite issues.

    Q
    What precautions should I take with pets with Bedlam?
    I need to treat a bedroom for bedbugs and my cat like to get into that room,what precautions should I take as regards her safety?
    A
    Bedlam is a very safe product when used as directed.  As with any product on our site, we always recommend that you keep your pet out of the room while you are treating. After the treatment is done, wait a few hours for the product to dry.  After that time, it is perfectly safe to let the pets back in the room.

    You do need to necessarily need to leave the home after treatment.  It is recommended that pets, children and anyone not doing the treatment be out of the treatment area until the product dries which is usually about 30 minutes to an hour.

    Q
    Can you spray Bedlam Insecticide on your skin to stop bites during the night?
    A
    Absolutely not.  Bedlam is not labeled to be sprayed on your skin, nor is any professional pest control product that we sell.  You should take measures to decrease bed bugs from getting on your bed in the first place by using Bed Bug Encasements for your mattress and box spring and Climbup Insect Interceptors for the feet of your bed.

  • Asked by Carolyn from Dallas, Texas

    Q
    Please explain the difference between the dust products, like Delta Dust, Evergreen Dust, and Alpine Dust.
    You've mentioned several different dust products. What's the difference in them, meaning the appropriate place to apply or their best usage?
    A
    The dusts would really be applied in all the same areas following the instructions on the product labels.  Where you use them is really dependent on what type of pest you are treating for.   The main differences are in the active ingredients and features.  Alpine insecticide dust is the industry's first and only Reduced Risk non repellent dust that contains Dinotefuran and Diatomaceous Earth for quicker kill broad-spectrum use.  Delta Dust had Deltamethrin and is the world's first and only 100% waterproof insecticide dust.  Evergreen Dust is a 1% Pyrethrin botanical insecticide, meaning it's all natural.  They are all really labeled for the same types of pests.

    Q
    Why vacuum often when you say bedbugs aren't in carpet?
    A
    When we say vaccum often, we mean floors, mattresses, baseboards, etc. This will help to bring the bed bugs up to come in contact with insecticide. After vaccuming, be sure to discard of contents outdoors.

    Q
    What should I use to treat the carpet for dust mites?
    I have a son who has dust allergy. I have sorted his bed etc out so its just the carpet that is the only problem.
    A

    We recommend that you vacuum daily, steam treat once a week and apply BioDefense or Sterifab onn the surface. Bedlam should be applied around the cracks and crevices twice a month when your child is not present (room needs to be dry and properly ventilated prior to returning to areas treated). For more information on ways to treat, please check out our article on How to Get Rid of Dust Mites.

    Q
    I am thinking about using both BedLam and Gentrol Aerosol IGR. In what sequence should I use these products?
    # Bed Bugs
    A
    The sequence you use Gentrol Aerosol and Bedlam in does not matter. We would recommend that you use Bedlam and Gentrol in conjunction with an insecticide dust such as Eco Pco D-X dust. Bedlam can be used on sensitive areas and other areas where you need a fast knockdown. Dusts can be used on less sensitive areas and it will give a long lasting residual that will last at least 3 months. If you decide to use the dust and Bedlam together we recommend that you apply Bedlam first, let it dry and then apply the dust.

  • Asked by Mom from Lincoln Ne
    12/06/2013
    Q
    Is Bedlam Spray what i should use for treating bagged and packed items?
    My exterminator says to pack up books, pictures, knick knacks, etc, and spray this inside the tote. How long do I leave it contained to be safe I've killed everything inside?
    A
    The Bedlam insecticide spray would not actually be the best option for these items. If you are planning to enclose items like pictures and knick knacks in a storage tote or trash bag for treatment, you need to use the Nuvann Pro Strips. Each strip releases a vapor that builds up and fills the tote to kill anything within any crevice of the items inside it. Each container once sealed with the strip inside, needs to stay closed for 2 weeks. After that time fram you can remove all belongings and know they have been treated and the insects have been eliminated. Bedlam is something used for edges of dresser drawers, cracks and crevices of rooms and sides of mattresses and couch and chair cushions. Just as water would likely damage a picture or book, bedlam would do the same if you sprayed it on these items. Just spraying around the items does not take care of the potential insects inside each item that might not come out of hiding after you put them in the tote. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

  • Asked by Matt from Va

    Q
    Can or should this be used in combination with diatomaceous earth?
    I am about to begin treating my room for bed bugs that just began to show up. I bought a mattress cover and some d-earth before finding your products. I'm planning on encasing my mattress and dusting the edges of the mattress and the bed frame with d-earth, and then following up with the Bedlam.
    A
    You may use Bedlam Insecticide Spray and Diatomaceous Earth in conjunction with each other to treat for bed bugs. However, it would be counter productive to spray Bedlam Insecticide Spray on the same areas that have already been treated with Diatomaceous Earth. This is because Diatomaceous Earth must remain dry in order to be effective. We would recommend treating the mattress with Bedlam Insecticide Spray instead of the Diatomaceous Earth because the Diatomaceous Earth may go airborn and won't stay in place as well as the Bedlam Insecticide Spray. Diatomaceous Earth is best suited for areas that will be left undisturbed.

    Q
    Do I need to buy something separate or throw out my sons bed?
    My son has a wood bed,I mean everything on it is wood including the box spring drawers underneath it the whole shabang and he loves his bed so much do i have to throw it out or should i buy something else besides the bedbug kit
    A
    You do not have to discard the bed. The Bed Bug kits come with products that can be sprayed on the bed frame and around the perimeter of the room. You may want to purchase a mattress and box spring cover.Bedlam aerosol in the kits may be used for spot treatments on mattresses, upholstered furniture, drawers, bed frames, carpeted areas, curtains... You may also use Bedlam to knock down fleeing bedbugs after initial treatment of other insecticides.  Includes a straw tool for spraying into small cracks, crevices and other hiding places. Please let us know if you have any more questions.

    Q
    Does Bedlam have propoxur in it?
    In Columbus, Ohio it was on the news that a proven method for bed bugs is the propouxur 40 spray and i want to get it and try so is this true?
    A
    Bedlam does not have Propoxur in it.  We are not sure how accurate the statement is or how well Propoxur works.  It is still very preliminary.  We do carry an aerosol with Propoxur called Invader HPX

    Q
    I used Bedlam and Phantom on my wood bed. It left a white residue. How do I clean it off?
    How do I clean off the white residue left on my bedroom furniture?
    A

    Bedlam Insecticide Aerosol and Phantom should not be applied at the same time in the same areas because discoloration can occur.  You should be able to remove any residue with warm water and soap.  Apply one product only to cracks and crevices of the bed frame until visibly wet but not dripping.
