gship bed bug products—Bed Bug Patrol and BenzaRid Environmental Spray—are both excellent options f
or getting rid of bed bugs; both get the job done. However, how the formulas for the two products, and thus the ways they go about killing bed bugs, are significantly different. One kills bed bugs naturally; the other doesn’t. Therefore, it is a good idea to read package labels before buying to make sure you know what you’re getting.
Bed Bug Patrol kills bed bugs in minutes. The formula is 100% chemical and pesticide free, which is a key point for those looking for an eco-savvy bed bug treatment. Bed Bug Patrol is an all-natural bed bug and bed bug egg treatment made with a mixture of concentrated plant extracts; some of the key ingredients are Mentha Piperita, Euginia Carophylla, and Sodium Lauryl Sulphate. Since Bed Bug Patrol is formulated with plant extracts rather than chemicals, it does not have a pesticide-like scent to it. Instead, Bed Bug Patrol gives off a pleasant cinnamon scent wherever it’s used. Bed Bug Patrol’s plant-based formula also makes it safe for use on a variety of surfaces / fabrics and in households with children and pets.
Dermisil’s BenzaRid Environmental Spray is equally as effective in treating bed bugs as Bed Bug Patrol. However, unlike Bed Bug Patrol, BenzaRid is not an all-natural bed but treatment; it’s partially natural. BenzaRid contains natural fossil dust, which provides long-term defense against bed bugs, but the active ingredient in BenzaRid that actually kills bed bugs is a chemical called benzalkonium.
If you’re a fan of the Dermisil brand, the company sells a dozen or so other products for eliminating bed bugs that can be used instead of or in conjunction with Bed Bug Patrol and BenzaRid Environmental Spray. They all work fine. However, when it comes to household use, natural is always better in my book; natural with long-term protection is best. Since Dermisil doesn’t have a product that is both 100% natural and provides long-term protection, its flagship products are only worthy of four stars.
Kleen Green has a four-star rating rather than a five-star rating for one key reason: It does not provide long-term protection against bed bugs. In our opinion, that’s a huge factor because no one wants to have to treat a pest infestation more often than necessary. Despite this flaw, Kleen Green is a worthwhile bed bug treatment because it does what it is designed to do… which is kill bed begs.
What’s nice about Kleen Green is that it boasts some unique features. For instance, unlike many bed bug products on the market today, Kleen Green does not use poisons to kill bed bugs and bed bug eggs. Instead, Kleen Green uses a combination of powerful enzymes to eliminate bed-dwelling pests. In fact, its Kleen Green’s enzyme formula that gives the product a one up on pesticide and poison-based bed bug products. Why? Two reasons: (1) Just like humans can become resistant to certain products, so can bed bugs and it’s been noted that bed bugs are becoming more and more resistant to the poisons commonly used. (2) The chemicals used in other products attack the bed bug’s nervous system. However, because of the increased resistance, that’s becoming less effective. The enzymes in Kleen Green cause bed bugs to molt prematurely, leaving them vulnerable and easier to kill.
The use of non-toxic enzymes, rather than poisons, means that Kleen Green can be used around pets, children, and pregnant women. Plus, Kleen Green is nearly odorless so it’s ideal for those with a super-sensitive sniffer! In addition to being a good non-poisonous product for getting rid of bed bugs and bed bug eggs, Kleen Green has also proven to be effective in killing fleas, ticks, head lice, mites (dust & biting), scabies and fire ants. Then, when you toss in the fact that a little goes a long way (just 1 measure of Kleen Green mixed with 30 equivalent measures of water for most applications), it’s clear that Kleen Green is a great multi-purpose pest eradicator to have on hand; it would be excellent though if it provided long-term protection against pests too!
The feeling on PuraCleenRx as an effective bed bug eliminator is mixed. The reason: There is some question as to whether its better for cleaning for general purposes—including where bed bugs hang out—and if it actually works as well as other products in killing bed bugs.
All Stop Dead Bed Bugs Contact Killing Spray doesn’t use a pesticide or a carcinogen known to kill bed bugs as its main ingredient. Instead, its main ingredient is one that is used in hospitals to keep them clean. That’s the reason why some experts say it’s not effective; others argue that All Stop Dead Bed Bugs Contact Killing Spray is effective because cleanliness (or lack thereof), though not the only or primary cause of bed bug infestation, does play a part in the severity of a bed bug problem. We tend to side with those who say that All Stop Dead Bed Bugs Contact Killing Spray is effective simply because there haven’t been any major outcries of its ineffectiveness and this product has been around for some time now. On a positive note: All Stop Dead Bed Bugs Contact Killing Spray gets a bonus point from me just for the simple fact that the formula doesn’t include pesticides, and therefore is easy on the environment AND safe to use around your family. These two facts combined are why All Stop Dead Bed Bugs Contact Killing Spray gets a middle of the road rating.
So, do we believe that this product works? Yes. However, we also believe that it is not nearly as effective as other products. Therefore, think of All Stop Dead Bed Bugs Contact Killing Spray as a viable option for getting rid of most bed bugs problems, depending on how bad the bed bug problem is. If a bed bug problem is just becoming noticeable, All Stop Dead Bed Bugs Contact Killing Spray can likely do the job…and make sure that the area is as sanitary as the best of hospitals! If it’s a serious bed bug problem or a re-infestation, try Best Yet Biting Insect Spray instead. It’s the leading bed bug treatment.
When you’ve got a serious bed bug problem (which, for most, any bed bug problem is serious), Diatect’s Results Bed Bug Killer can help you get rid of the critters. It does a decent job but the best thing about the product is that it’s so easy and convenient to use. For example, Results Bed Bug Killer can be used in a powder form or a creamy type mixture (when you mix it with water). Because of that, it’s easy to use wherever you needed it—to fill cracks in and around the trouble areas or to sprinkle directly on the bed, sofa, carpet, etc. Some customers also like Results Bed Bug Killer because, in addition to bed bugs, it can be used to kill a host of other bothersome household pests such as earwigs, spiders, roaches, fleas, and ants. Others cite the facts that Results Bed Bug Killer doesn’t leave visible residue behind when cleaned up properly and that it does not stain as key sellers for them. I’m sure of the fact that Results Bed Bug Killer is citrus scented is also a bonus for some too.
Though Diatect’s Results Bed Bug Killer may sound like the perfect solution to your bed bug problems, it’s not necessarily the right product to use in all instances. Results Bed Bug Killer works fast in most cases when the it's applied to visible bed bugs, but Results Bed Bug Killer does have to be applied directly to bed bugs for it to work. It is not a long-term, treat the area and go type solution. Therefore, you have to be diligent (and always ready with a dose of Results Bed Bug Killer) in order to try to eradicate your bed bug problem. Plus, Results Bed Bug Killer is not a natural treatment; it contains pyrethrins, silicon dioxide and a handful of other ingredients that some say are mostly, but not always, safe for use in the home environment. With that said, use Results Bed Bug Killer if that’s the best that you can find and you are in dire need; however, do follow up with a bed bug treatment that does not require direct contact and that provides long-term treatment for best results.
Natureplex manufactures Sleep Tight Bed Bug Killer. The product is billed as a “bio-pesticide” and the product descriptions tout all the common “green” advantages that you would expect from a manufacturer named Natureplex. Some of the claims for the product include that, because it’s a “bio-pesticide,” Sleep Tight Bed Bug Killer is environmentally friendly and a non-pollutant. Its eco-friendly, organic ingredients are also said to make Sleep Tight Bed Bug Killer safe to use throughout the home as well as on luggage and humans.
Wondering how Sleep Tight works since it seems to be so “safe” for everyone and everything? Well, that’s as simple as understanding a bit about nature. Sleep Tight is formulated with plant-based oils and other natural oils. Bed bugs cannot withstand the particular oils used in the Sleep Tight formula because the oils breakdown bed bugs’ outer membranes, which makes it impossible for the bed bugs (and their eggs) to survive. Therefore, the bed bugs die shortly after they’ve come in contact with Sleep Tight.
While the Sleep Tight solution does act fast, the downside is that it only acts on contact. If Sleep Tight is not applied directly to bed bugs / bed bug eggs or if the spray dries, leaving only traces of the oils in infested areas, bed bugs will survive. Therefore, Sleep Tight can be used to treat a bed bug problem but isn’t ideal for treating bed bug infestations. It’s better suited for “just in case” situations rather than when it’s blatantly apparent that there’s a bed bug infestation. If bed bugs or signs of bed bugs (bites on your skin overnight or small feces specks on the bedding) are visible, another more powerful product is recommended. Try Best Yet Biting Insect Spray.
Time and patience are mandatory to use the Tallman bed bug extermination “system;” it’s not your typical spray or sprinkle-and-go type treatment but rather a three-step process. Therefore, Tallman does lose a couple of consumer points for lack of convenience. Still, it is easy to use.
The first step of the three-step process is focused primarily on containment. During the first step, a treated mattress encasing is used to isolate and kill the bed bugs hiding in the mattress. Decontaminating the bed frame is also required. Next is step two. During this step, Tallman Contact Killer is used to treat the actual bedroom. The final step in the process is to rid baseboards around the room and the area below the bed of any nesting bed bugs.
Now the important question: Once all of that work is done, does Tallman actually get rid of bed bugs? The short answer: Yes. The long answer: The Tallman system works as long as the entire living space is treated. A word of warning: The price tag to do so, compared to other products, is high! Investing in all of the Tallman products recommended for use to get rid of bed bugs would cost upwards of $150.00…and that’s only if one bedroom was being treated. Frankly, there are much better bed bug treatments on the market that work far better for far less. If for some reason someone out there feels compelled to use Tallman products though, I suppose the rationalization for the expense could be the fact that the Tallman system works for an extended time…as long as enough product was purchased and the product was used properly the first time around.
The Steri-Fab bed bug treatment gets a lot of attention from consumers simply because it’s well marketed; it comes with all of the primary benefits that would make anyone battling a bed bug problem want to grab a bottle. For instance, Steri-Fab doesn’t require mixing. Also, it doesn’t leave any visible residue behind and there’s no vacuuming or wiping down of areas needed after applying Steri-Fab because it’s non-toxic. Then there’s the fact that its non-toxic nature, of course, makes Steri-Fab safe for use around children and pets. The bows on this well-marketed package are that Steri-Fab is an eco-friendly bed bug treatment and that it costs about the same as other bed bug treatments currently on the market.
But guess what? All of that is fluff when it comes to what really matters about a bed bug treatment. Do not let all the bells and whistles that the manufacturer highlights take your attention away from what’s really important: The ability to get rid of bed bugs.
In actuality, the manufacturers of Steri-Fab—S.C.M. Distributors—specialize in products for janitorial needs, not pest control. Therefore, Steri-Fab is better suited to clean your home to attempt to ward off bed bugs rather than to fight an already prevalent infestation. But, if anyone out there does choose to use Steri-Fab as a bed bug treatment, he / she should know that Steri-Fab is somewhat effective in killing bed bugs; however, it is completely ineffective when it comes to killing bed bug eggs. Therefore, Steri-Fab inevitably leaves users vulnerable to re-infestations.
Frankly, there are far more effective products on the market and anyone who chooses to use Steri-Fab should be prepared to stock up, and to hunker down for a lengthy battle to get his / her home bed bug free.
