Product Overview

The Emergency Bed Bug Kit provides you with the professional products necessary to do a complete bed bug treatment in your home or apartment. This kit has just the right balance of products to treat at least two rooms completely, plus enough to do the several follow-up treatments that are crucial to success. Unlike other kits you may find, the Do My Own Pest Control kits contain the most effective products available based on the most current research. This kit contains 2 x 15 oz. cans of Temprid Ready Spray, 1 x 4 oz. bottle of Cimexa Dust for Bed Bugs, 1 hand dusting tool, and 1 x 16 oz. bottle of Steri-Fab.

The Emergency Bed Bug Kit ships with everything you need to complete a bed bug treatment. Thanks to the unique Bag-on-Valve technology utilized in the cans of the Temprid Ready Spray, you do not need a pump sprayer to make an application. If you need help with your bed bug problems immediately, then this is your best option.

Why do I need so many products?

We do not recommend relying on one product or treatment method since bugs may avoid areas treated with certain products, or they may become resistant to certain chemicals. It is crucial to thoroughly Inspect the treatment area for possible bed bug harborages, and to follow all the Treatment steps, including follow-up treatments.

Details

Before applying any chemicals, it is crucial to prepare the area for treatment by removing clutter, vacuuming, steaming (optional), and encasing mattresses and box springs. Taking time for these preparation steps will make your treatments much more successful. Using the products in your Bed Bug Kit, treat all cracks, crevices, voids, tufts, seams, and folds where bed bugs may be found. Always keep pets, children, and other people out of the treatment area until the products have dried - usually about an hour.

STEP 1 - Spray - Temprid Ready Spray

*Wear gloves when mixing and handling pesticides, such as Nitrile Chemical Resistant Gloves.

*Shake Temprid Ready Spray vigorously before each use. You may use the open nozzle for treating broader areas, or use the crack and crevice straw for more detailed spraying.

*Pressure will be high when the can is full, so hold the can 12-18 inches away from the surface when applying as a spot spray.

*Apply Temprid Ready Spray to the following areas, contacting as many bugs and eggs directly in these areas as possible:

  • Around bed and furniture legs - Inspect wheels, casters, posts, and legs of all furniture.
  • Behind wall fixtures
  • Under floor lamps
  • Cracks and crevices along baseboards and floor moldings
  • Beneath floor coverings and along the edges of wall-to-wall carpeting
  • On infested mattress and box springs - Remove linens, then apply to tufts, seams, folds and edges.
  • Cracks and joints in bed frames, headboards, dressers, shelves, and other furniture
  • Picture frames and wall coverings - Remove from the wall and treat cracks and crevices on and behind these items.
  • Around door frames, window frames, and thresholds
  • Upholstered furniture - Apply only to the infested tufts, seams, folds, and edges, but do not apply to flat surfaces where prolonged human contact will occur.

*Do not remake beds or replace items on shelves or in drawers until spray has dried.

*Do not apply as a space spray or broadcast treatment to floors, floor coverings, mattresses, or other furniture.

STEP 2 - Dust - Bellow Hand Duster and CimeXa Insecticide Dust

*Once your spray application has dried, you can apply the insecticide dust.

*Using insecticide dust can be very messy, so be sure to wear gloves and consider having a moist paper towel handy to clean up excess dust.

*To fill the Bellow Hand Duster, remove the black rubber stopper on top of the duster. Gently unscrew the white top of the CimeXa dust, then slowly tap the dust into the duster. Fill the duster up to halfway (or less), so there is plenty of room for the dust to move inside the duster.

*You may want to add a few small objects such as coins, pebbles, or marbles to prevent clumping inside the duster.

*Replace the black stopper so that it fits snugly into the opening. Remove the black rubber cap from the end of the extension wand. To apply dust, hold the duster upside down, so that the extension wand is on top, then gently squeeze the bellows between the thumb and fingers.

*Apply CimeXa Dust to voids and other hidden areas where it will not be disturbed, such as:

  • Behind electrical faceplates - Remove switch and electrical plates to gain access to wall voids.
  • Along baseboards - Treat any cracks in, above, or below baseboards where the tip of the duster will fit. Also treat under the edges of carpeting where you are able.
  • Headboards - Remove from the wall or dismantle to allow thorough treatment.
  • Drawers and furniture - Remove drawers and treat along tracks and support, as well as the corners and edges of the cabinet. Also treat in cracks and crevices on the undersides of cabinets and other furniture, and in any hollow areas such as bed frame tubing.
  • Box Springs and upholstered furniture - Check for tears in fabric backing or other hollow areas where the tip of the duster may fit, and treat these areas.
  • Behind wall fixtures - Remove fixtures from walls and treat behind each one.

*Be careful to avoid over-dusting. CimeXa Dust is very fine, and it only takes an extremely small amount to kill a bed bug.

*If dust escapes into open areas, simply wipe up the excess dust with a moist paper towel.

*Do not apply dust as a broadcast or in open areas where it will be moved around as it can become an irritant.

STEP 3 - CONTACT KILL - Sterifab

*Sterifab does not require dilution, but you should shake the container well before spraying.

*Sterifab will kill bed bugs and other insects on contact only, so it is only active when it is wet.

*Because of this short action, you can apply Sterifab almost anywhere bed bugs are found.

*Use Sterifab in areas where you see live bed bugs, especially where you cannot use residual products, such as:

  • On the resting areas of sofas, chairs, mattresses, or other upholstered furniture
  • Open areas on carpets or floors where live bugs are seen
  • Walls, baseboards, or corners

*Sterifab will stay active as an insecticide, virucide, fungicide, bactericide, mildewcide, germicide, etc. as long as it is wet. Sterifab leaves no residual after it has dried.

*Do not apply to clothing items or directly to people or animals.

*Use as needed to spot treat live insects.

STEP 4 - TREAT CLOTHING AND LINENS

*Although this step does not NOT involve any chemicals in your kit, it is a crucial part of your treatment.

*Clothing, linens, or other fabric items in the infested rooms should be removed in bags, then washed and dried or dry cleaned.

*Do not return items to the infested areas until there has been no evidence of bed bugs for 30 days.

*Failure to make sure all items being returned to the room are bedbug free may cause a reinfestation.

*Objects that cannot be washed can be put into a bag or bin with a Nuvan Pro Strip to eliminate bedbugs. The items must stay sealed for 4 weeks in the bag or bin. If this treatment will not work for you because of the time it takes to eliminate the bed bugs you also have the option of using bed bug heater like the ZappBug Heater. Place your items inside the unit where they will be heated up to 155 degrees Fahrenheit. Within a few hours, all bed bugs will be killed.

STEP 5 - REPEAT! REPEAT! REPEAT!

*Repeat Step 1 (Temprid Ready Spray) every 7-10 days days until no one is getting bitten and there is no further evidence such as live bugs, cast skins or fresh blood spots found. This is absolutely crucial! Depending on the severity of the infestation it can take a minimum of 7-8 weeks, including repeat treatments. Failure to be thorough can prolong the bed bug control process and can make it harder to eliminate them.

*Use Sterifab as frequently as needed to kill live bugs on contact.

    Work Well !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    By Connie on 02/20/2017

    I find out about "DoMyOwnPestControl", from a friend of my son, who use this for his rental properties. I do Foster Care and one of my foster child brought bed bugs. I didn't have the money to pay to for an exterminator. It really is fast free shipping like they say. I also work at a public school in Ohio and almost all of our schools have someone who has beg bugs. I can't afford to keep calling a exterminator to get rid of bed bugs. So these products work just as well or better then paying all the money for a exterminator.

    Outstanding Do It Yourself Pest Control Kit!

    By Lisa on 06/14/2017

    We were quoted $2,000 to remove pests from 1 room of a house. I came across this website on a google search and decided to give it a try. It worked!! It was a time consuming process that involved treating the room once a week for 3 months, BUT it worked and it saved me $2,000+ dollars!! Directions were clear and easy to follow and there was plenty of the product for my job. Thanks!

    This is the kit I bought and it's awesome

    By Shell on 07/29/2018

    Verified Purchase

    I'm not real sure on what exactly done what but all I know is after treating my home with this kit and going by the step by step guide that came with it and vacuuming everyday the stuff worked really well the first day you can start to notice a difference. And by day 7 the only thing I even seen were little tiny baby bed bugs and they were barely moving and here in day 10 I think I've probably seen like 3 or 4 tiny little babies. They were gooey and falling apart in the last two days. I also want to mention that I've been finding around my house other bugs that it's killed too. Thank God I found fleas which I have a dog but the fleas won't stay on him because of the medicine I put on him for fleas so I guess they got off him and into the house but I've found dead fleas, dead gnats and some other kinda bugs I don't have a clue what they were and I've found a beetle dead also. Like I said I don't no which one has done what outta the kit I bought which was the emergency kit that had the Sterifab, the Cimexa and the Temprid Ready Spray in it. But this is an awesome kit and it's safe to use even around your pets because like I was saying I have a dog he's a toy Shih-tzu which means he's a lot smaller than most and he's been ok though it all. I highly recommend this kit.
