Apartment building has six units. Two units down from me found bed bugs. Can I spray to keep them out of my unit? I haven’t seen any yet but I’m real worried.
Spraying before bedbugs enter a living area is smart. If treating before they’re established, you can apply a minimum amount of material and still be able to prevent an outbreak. This translates to less cost, less effort and less hazard needed in the the living environment.
To accomplish this goal, use GENTROL. Mix one vial with 1 gallon of water and apply the mixed solution to 800 sq/ft. Treatments will last 3-6 months and will prevent juveniles from developing to reproducing adults. This would be the least protective application but one which would prevent an outbreak.
You’ll need a good PUMP SPRAYER to apply the Gentrol; be sure to spray baseboards, carpeting, furniture, etc. Basically all the flooring – especially where they’re likely to enter or nest. If possible, make sure local hallways get treated too.
Since Gentrol will only work on eggs and growing juveniles, it won’t affect adults. So if you want to include a killing agent for adults, add ESSENTRIA IC to the tank. It will kill foraging active bedbugs (and other insects) and can be added with the Gentrol in the same tank at the same time. Use 4 oz per gallon of water with 1 vial of Gentrol per 800 sq/ft of floor space.
Now its important to understand Essentria will be fast acting but won’t last long. After 2-3 weeks, residuals will break down and be gone but the Gentrol will still be very active for months to come.
