Product Overview

Steri-Fab should be used as a supplemental product to a bed bug elimination program.  We recommend using our bed bug kits to eliminate infestations. Steri-Fab alone will not eliminate a bed bug infestation as it leaves NO residual.

STERI-FAB is so easy to use, with no dilution or prep required. Just spray STERI-FAB on mattresses, bedding, furniture, carpets, vehicles, and any other inanimate surface to control bed bugs, fungus, germs, mildew, mold, and odor-producing bacteria. STERI-FAB kills bed bugs fast and dries crystal clear in 15 to 20 minutes with absolutely zero messy residue. Available in pint and one gallon sizes.

Comes in Gallon sizes to refill the 16 oz. spray bottle.

Shake Well Before And During Use.

Details

How Steri-Fab Works

Steri-Fab acts as a contact kill on bed bugs and other insects using a combination of a synthetic pyrethroid insecticide and isopropyl alcohol. Steri-Fab also acts as a bacteriacide, fungicide, sanitizer, viricide, mildewcide, germicide, deodorant, bacteriostatic, and fungistatic. Because Steri-Fab does not leave any residual, it can be applied virtually anywhere. Simply shake well, then apply to desired treatment areas. Insect mortality is imminent for those contacted with Steri-Fab spray. Disinfection generally occurs within 10 minutes of spraying.

Steri-Fab Target Pests

Bed bugs, bed bug eggs, dust mites, lice, mildew, bacteria, fungus, odor-causing organisms

PESTS CONTROLLED WITH STERI-FAB:

bed bugs, bed bug eggs, lice, louse eggs, ticks, fleas, dust mites, fungus, gram negative and gram positive bacteria, mold, mildew, odor-causing organisms; roaches, silverfish, sowbugs, centipedes, firebrats, mites; herpes simplex type 2, athlete’s foot fungus

Target Uses of Steri-Fab Spray

Conditions that require insecticides are often breeding grounds for many types of bacteria, fungus, germs, odors, and mildew. STERI-FAB is a product unlike any other available in the world, boasting 11-way protection against not only insects but fungus, germs, and odors.

STERI-FAB is a viricide, bactericide, sanitizer, fungicide, insecticide, germicide, deodorizer, disinfectant, mildewcide, bacteriostatic and fungistatic all in one, eliminating the need to keep many different single-use products on hand.

Steri-Fab is a useful disinfectant and deodorizer for areas with lots of personal traffic, such as waiting rooms, lobbies, conference rooms, patient rooms, day care centers, and bathrooms, as well as modes of transportation such as buses, taxis, and cars.

Steri-Fab is also an integral part of many bedbug treatments as it is one of few products proven to kill immature and adult bedbugs and bedbug eggs, and it can be used in sensitive areas such as mattresses and upholstered furniture. Steri-Fab is also sold in many of our popular Bed Bug Kits.

ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Combination of synthetic pyrethroid, a dual quat, and isopropyl alcohol

Steri-Fab Application Instructions

Shake well before and during use. Surfaces and objects must be cleaned of gross filth before treatment. Spray surfaces and articles until thoroughly dampened and allow to remain wet for at least 10 minutes. If using a hand or power sprayer, keep approximately one foot from surface to be sprayed, and apply Steri-Fab over all surfaces until thoroughly dampened coverage is obtained. Allow upholstered or fabric surfaces to dry before use. Hard surfaces may be wiped dry after at least 10 minutes. Sterifab will have a slight alcohol smell when sprayed. Always read the product label completely before use.

A 16-ounce bottle of Steri-Fab will easily treat a mattress set or sofa. 1 gallon will treat 8-10 pieces of upholstered furniture or 5 sets of mattresses and box springs. Exact yield will vary with each use.

Standard Application Rates for Steri-Fab:

* Steri-Fab is ready-to-use and should not be diluted.

* 10-12 oz. treats a typical sofa or couch.

* 4-5 oz. typically treats a small upholstered chair or love seat.

Steri-Fab is for use in the following areas:

No label restrictions as far as specific types of institutions. For use on surfaces and articles including cracks, crevices, seams, creases, and folds of mattresses or other furniture, rugs and carpets, animal quarters and surrounding areas, restroom surfaces, non-porous and non-food contact surfaces in kitchens, other non-porous surfaces.

How do I use Steri-Fab to eliminate Bedbugs?

To Eliminate ROACHES, BEDBUGS, ANTS AND SILVERFISH LICE and LOUSE EGGS: The infested areas should be sprayed thoroughly and repeatedly, directing the spray into all crevices, cracks, hiding places, seams, creases and folds. Allow Steri-Fab to dry about 15-20 minutes before using treated area. Because Steri-Fab was formulated not to be a residual product, you must make direct contact with insects and their eggs to be effective. Retreat every 7-10 days or as needed.

To kill FLEAS AND TICKS: The infested area should be sprayed thoroughly and repeatedly directing the spray into all animal quarters and surrounding areas. For best results remove and destroy old animal bedding prior to use. Do not spray animals. Animals should be treated with an appropriate flea and tick spray designed for their use before they reenter the treated area.

On hard surfaces for sanitizing, deodorizing: Apply Sterifab on all surfaces until a moist surface it obtained and allow to remain wet for at least 10 minutes.

Outdoors

* Steri-Fab is not designed for outdoor use.

    This stuff works!

    By Annie on 09/14/2007

    Wow! Does this stuff work. New York City is experiencing a resurgence in bedbugs due to people traveling all over the place, and I found the tell-tale bites on my legs. Yikes! I saved myself over $200 from the local pest control "consultation" by contacting Do My Own Pest Control. They were helpful, and within days I had my first shipment of Steri-Fab. The treatment is simple, effective, and best of all-NO odor. Using this product is as simple as cleaning your bedroom-dust, take the pictures off the wall, strip the mattress, and spritz away! I haven't had a bite in over three weeks and there is no residue or after-smell. Now I can just vacuum, dust a bit, and everything is clean and good to go! This is a great product and a fabulous website. Everyone loves a good buffet, but with Steri-Fab, you don't have to be one, LOL. Thanks again!

    Easy, effective, and affordable

    By Victoria on 08/20/2009

    When I found bed bugs, I promptly bought box spring covers and the mattress covers and washed all sheets and pillows in hot water. Unfortunately, bed bugs are not limited to beds. And in the days since I had discovered them, they had moved to my sofa, as well. I ordered Steri-Fab and www.DoMyOwnPestControl.com shipped it immediately. I sprayed the sofa, area rugs, and the bed frame itself. Seven days later, I repeated the process. Not a single bite since. I am always going to keep some Steri-Fab on hand now, just in case.

    Steri-Fab

    By Monique on 08/02/2010

    Verified Purchase

    Have used this product one time so far and it seems to work very well, did have a strong alcohol smell, we left the apartment after we sprayed and when we returned 6 hours later the smell was completely gone. Haven't seen any bed bugs on the couch or chair, we will spray again in about 3 weeks to make sure the bugs are gone. Didn't stain the couch fabric.

    Great product

    By Jen on 01/26/2011

    Verified Purchase

    I was getting bites overnight but I wasn't sure if it was fleas from my dog or bed bugs. I had never had bedbugs before and thought I might have brought them home with me from a trip to the cabins. I finally decided to search for something online to help treat this issue when I came across this product. I ordered it and used it all over my bed/mattress and floor. I stopped getting bites! It worked great. I had to do it again a week later though. I got one new bite the following week and remembered that the instructions did recommend re-spraying a week later. So far so good!

    Steri-Fab

    By Laura on 09/25/2010

    Verified Purchase

    I was desperate to find a solution for my daughter's bed bug problem. She was in the dorm and could hardly sleep waking up with bug bites or feeling them crawling on her at night. I found your website and after reading the reviews sent her the 160z bottle. It worked! I then ordered the larger size and the organic product. That helped her to sleep and finally finish the school year. I appreciated the fact that you had an MSDS so I was able to read about the product prior to ordering. You were great with shipping and delivery. I will definitely recommend your company to my friends.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Does Steri-fab kill on contact?

I willl be staying in a hotel in November, and I would like to know if it will kill bedbugs on contact. I don't want to stay there in a room with them until they die, and I don't want to bring them home with me either.
A
Steri-Fab does indeed kill on contact. Many of our customers (and all of our staff) use Steri-Fab when traveling and staying in hotels. We always recommend pulling the sheets off of the bed and closely checking the mattress and looking behind head board and in the cracks and crevices of the headboard for evidence of bedbugs. Never put luggage on the bed or on the floor.

Q
Can I add Steri-Fab Insecticide to my laundry?
A

No, Steri-Fab would not be effective once diluted with water.  If you are treating for bed bugs, a normal wash and dry cycle in hot water and high heat will kill all stages of bed bugs including the eggs without having to add anything special to the wash.

Q
Does Steri-Fab continue to work after it dries?

If so, how long? Do the bugs that crawl on the dried surface that was sprayed die? Does it repel bedbugs?
A
Steri-Fab only works while it is wet. You must make direct contact with the bedbugs and bedbug eggs for Steri-Fab to be effective. While there may be some repellency from the Steri-Fab, it is not labeled as a repellent.
