TO KILL BED BUGS (Adults, Nymphs and Eggs):
For best results, vacuuming surfaces is recommended prior to treatment. Spray bed bugs and eggs directly wherever possible. Apply as a pinstream, coarse spray or low pressure spray for crack and crevice, carpet perimeter, and direct spray applications in and around non-food areas where bed bugs and their eggs may hide or harbor. For example, on and around baseboards, floorboards, millwork, bed frames, headboards, wall hangings, furniture, door and window frames, walls, closets, window treatments, beneath floor coverings, as well as other non-washable items that may come in contact with bed bugs such as luggage, shoes and backpacks. If treating a pet’s living environment, spray on and around pet beds, bedding, floors, sleeping areas and furnishings. This product can also be applied with a paintbrush to walls, baseboards, floorboards, behind wall hangings and other similar areas.
Crossfire can be directly applied to mattress and box springs surfaces. For porous surfaces such as mattresses and carpet perimeter areas, apply until thoroughly damp but not wet. Infested bed linens should not be treated. These should be removed, tightly sealed in a plastic bag, laundered and dried at high temperatures prior to re-use. Vacuuming surfaces prior to treatment is highly recommended. Using pinstream, coarse or low pressure equipment, spray directly to mattress surface paying special attention to seams, folds, tufts and edges as well as bed frames and box springs where bed bugs harbor. Re-make bed with clean linens prior to reuse.
We had tried many different methods in our house and nothing seemed to have lasting affects over a few days. Although, this product may seem expensive, it helped us out a lot. We got the $300 bottle for our 1,500 sq ft house, prepped it by removing all the clutter, and washed, then removed, all the clothes and linen. Sprayed our whole home from top to bottom, let it dry, and that night no bites. It has been 3 weeks now, we sprayed again after 10 days, and no a bed bug bite in site. All of the hiding spots they were in are now vacant too. Well worth the investment and very recommended. Saved our sanity.
I called the exterminator for my bed bug problem. The guy pulled out this same bottle and told us "This stuff is $100 per bottle, but it works!" He then sprayed our beds and chairs and was gone. After a few days we were still finding bugs. I found this website and watched a video which said that it takes 2 hours to complete a room, including curtains, baseboards, etc. I ordered a bottle for $45 and completely covered the bedroom where we had found bugs. I can gladly say that we have been bug free for 3 weeks now. If you have an infestation, I would skip the exterminator, order this product, a bottle per room, and maybe repeat in about 2 weeks. It takes time to eliminate bed bugs--just be patient, and this product will work for you.
I'm a pest control professional and used a lot of different kind of product for bedbugs. Discovered Crossfire, tested the product on different properties and I have to say, was very very impressed! one treatment and got rid of the bedbugs very happy with Crossfire.
Sprayed then heat treated to 120 degrees 2 hrs still bed bugs some dead some alive cralled on bed next day still live ones ( disiapointed)
Thank you for your comments! We always recommend to use heat treatments before applying spray insecticides. Heat treatments will break down pesticide residuals, so you are reducing the effects of the products you have sprayed if you heat it immediately after use. It is possible for products such as Crossfire to take several hours to kill bed bugs that contact the residual since factors such as size and health of the insect and how much active ingredient they pick up will affect this kind of timing. Just keep in mind that unless you have removed all the residual through extensive heating/steaming, Crossfire has very long residual and will continue to kill bedbugs for months after it has been applied. Please let us know if we can further assist you!
Should I alternate my bed bug treatment with Crossfire?
I've been using temprid, gentrol, bedlam,cimexa.
Crossfire is a fantastic and very potent bedbug control product and could certainly be alternated with a spray of Temprid. The biggest thing with bedbugs is to stay on top of treatments every 7-14 days and be meticulous with the applications to get into every nook and crevice you can. If you have a heavy infestation using a product like Crossfire can help drastically drop the numbers and cut your retreatments down due to its unique mode of action.
Is Crossfire Bed Bug Concentrate safe in a home with pets?
I have a cat that I can put up for a little while while it dries
Yes, Crossfire Bed Bug Concentrate is safe to use in a home with pets, as long as it is used according to the label. Be sure to remove pets from areas being treated until they have had time to dry completely.
What is the recommended retreatment time for bedbug control when using Crossfire Bed Bug Concentrate? The residual is 30 days?
It is recommended to retreat every 14 days for active infestations of bed bugs until you can go 30 days without seeing any signs of bedbugs or without anyone getting bit. Crossfire can be sprayed everyday if needed, but for an active treatment, every 14 days is recommended. Please see the How to Treat for Bed Bugs Pest Control Guide for more information.
