Sue from Ohio writes,

What is the best residual product to use for bedbugs. I am looking for a long lasting spray.

Need to treat for bebugs and have tried a few products and they are not getting rid of the problem. We have washed in hot water, trued bedlum plus, DE dust, and encased all beds. I need a spray that can be sprayed on carpets, sofas, in my vehical. With a long lasting residual. I need a quick knock down product with and one that keeps working when dry. Looking for a concentrate that goes into gallon sprayer.


Temprid would be a great choice for you. For infested mattresses, remove linens and wash before reuse. Apply to tufts, seams, folds, and edges until moist. Allow to dry before remaking bed.

Apply to bedsprings, box springs, and the interior of bed frames or headboards, including all cracks and joints.

When bed bugs are found in 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. If bugs heavily infest furniture (inside cushions and/or batting) apply a labeled insecticide dust.

Apply as a crack and crevice treatment to all baseboards, moldings, beneath floor coverings and carpets, closets, shelves, curtains, furniture and picture frames that may provide harborage to bed bugs.

Temprid prevents bed bug infestations for up to 6 months.

Please make sure to follow the product label closely.
