Test the surface first. Bedlam will not stain water-safe fabrics and surfaces. To make sure a surface is water-safe, spray in an inconspicuous area to test for possible staining or discoloration. Check after spray has dried; if staining has not occurred, proceed to spray area to be treated.
Shake well before each use. Vacate room after treatment and ventilate before reoccupying. Spray only those garments, parts of bedding, including mattresses and furniture that cannot be either laundered or dry-cleaned. Allow sprayed articles and surfaces to dry thoroughly before using or replacing bedding. Do not allow children or pets to contact treated areas until surface is dry. Use Bedlam as part of an IPM program for Bed Bug Control. Use Bedlam in conjunction with other products labeled for the control of bed bugs such as Onslaught® Microencapsulated Insecticide for a comprehensive bed bug program.
Effective Bed Bug Application
For best results, in addition to treatment with Bedlam Insecticide, pest control professionals should include additional tactics such as those listed below.
Conduct a thorough inspection to locate the infestation
Be certain to look in any harborages that offer the bed bug isolation and darkness, such as:
Behind wall hangings, pictures and mirrors
Behind electrical switch plates
In electronics such as radios and alarm clocks
Under rugs and floor coverings In all nooks and crannies of nightstands
All parts of beds headboards, footboards, mattress, box springs, frame
Remove and wash all bedding. Allow surfaces to dry thoroughly before using or replacing bedding
Reduce and remove clutter from the room
Dispose of infested items that can be discarded
Encase or bag articles that may be infested, but will not be laundered or discarded
Remove bedding, clothing and other items that may be laundered or dry cleaned
Wash and dry on “high heat” dryer setting to achieve a temperature of 185°F
Things to consider in your bed bug treatment
Inspect, Inspect, Inspect
Listen to occupants and carefully inspect the entire infestation area with a flashlight, to identify all pockets of infestation. Bed bugs have been found in uncommon places such as smoke detectors, books, electronic equipment, etc.
Develop a Treatment Plan
Communicate the plan and expectations to the occupants. Always prioritize safety. Bed bug treatment usually requires more than one technician and often requires multiple visits.
Remove all items from floor, underside of bed, and closet floors. Inspect, treat or carefully dispose of all infested items.
Vacuum all visible bed bugs. Move furniture 2-3 feet from wall. Vacuum carpet throughout room, beneath furniture and in closets. Add insecticide dust to vacuum bag before disposing.
Treat Along Carpet Edges
Pull back carpet from the baseboard and dust or broadcast spray with an appropriate insecticide.
Cracks & Crevices; Wall Voids:
Treat all cracks and crevices, wall and furniture voids, behind picture frames, behind the bed headboard and all carpeted surfaces.
Broadcast spray mattress and box spring with alcohol-free, water-based insecticide approved for this use. Encase treated mattresses and box springs after drying.
Wash & Dry on High Heat
Launder all bed sheeting and clothing on high heat. Place items that cannot be laundered in dryer on high heat.
What excellent service - if you have genuinely already despatched the item, thank you very much! Nice to know we won't have to share a flat with these mice much longer ;) Great service. - chrisbirkett
I ordered Gentrol IGR from EPestSolutions and am pleased to say my order was received earlier than expected. There were no problems with my order and I found the employees to be knowledgeable and very friendly. As far as Gentrol IGR, it is awesome. While the rest of the neighbors are battling roaches with those department store baits, my house "seems" to be completely cockroach free. They converged on the neighborhood during a drought, and suddenly everyone had them. Since the biggest problem with cockroaches is their ability to exponentially breed, what better way to win the battle than insect birth control! I give EPestSolutions and Gentrol ***** Stars for great service and a fantastic product. The next time I see a cockroach, I hope it's in a museum under glass with the rest of the extinct species. As a bonus, I have seen a significant reduction in other insects as well. Thanks EPestSolutions and Gentrol for giving me back my house. Just a note, Gentrol is for indoor use only, and I limited mine to the areas around the bathroom, kitchen baseboards, behind cabinets, under sink, refrigerator, stove, inside doorways, edges of windows on the inside, and on the insulation and plumbing under the sub floor in the sealed crawlspace below the kitchen and bathroom. A good pest control program should be used in conjunction with other products, i.e., pump sprays, baits, and especially helpful are products with a stick attachment to reach wall voids and the smallest cracks. Ask EPestSolutions, and they will tell you exactly what you need at a fraction of the cost of an exterminator. Thanks Again, - L. Walker
InVict Gold is the best ever!, 11.7.2010 This stuff is amazing. We had a real bad problem. After putting it out a week ago, at first every few hours we had to sweep up piles of dead roaches. A week later, sweep at night, then go to bed and get up and have to sweep again...which is great thing! Everytime word gets out about this discovery, they ask me where I got it. I can't keep the little magnet that came with each order. Everyone keeps taking it to give to someone else like a business card. -Joseph
I was very satisfied with the Catch All mouse trap and was very impressed by the fast delivery. -Ann
Your product is wonderful and I highly endorse it. Also, your prices & service are excellent. Keep up the good work! And enjoy your holidays Jill
I have been very impressed with the speed and accuracy of your shipments. Thank you. -John
Your Insect glue boards are wonderful! :0) -Diane
Hi, just wanted to drop a line and say I really like your site. It was easy to use and up front. I was able to go right to what I needed. I fouind the same product I bought dfor cheaper on Amazon, but because of the ease of your site, I bought from you all. Thank you! -Nadia
After informing epestsolution of a problem I had with the spray can delivery system you immediately sent a replacement w/o any questions. Thank you, -pleased customer
However, we ordered Snap-E-Mousetraps because we had purchased some several years ago but have never been able to find them since (in stores) so we were so very happy to find them on-line with your company. They are already catching mice in our 100 year old farm house and working very well. They are easy to set and easy to unload (dead mice). Your prompt shipping was very nice, too. -Margaret
Not to take up too much time, I ordered those snap mouse traps. They work!!! Mostly, I appreciate the quick response. When I need anything else in this area, I will remember you guys. -Olivia
I received my order awhile back and wondered where I can leave you positive feedback? The order was just as I hoped, Shipping was very fast, and Cindy was Very helpful.
OK you are now my mew BFF!! Thanks so very much for your help with this. I really really appreciate it. Death to ANTS! :) -Heather
Comments: I understand that employees are the backbone of every successful company. But,sometimes their true value is lost in the everyday routine work they perform. Your company has a very valuable asset in Cindy (sales). What ever her current rate of pay, it is not enough. She made ordering from ePet very easy and enjoyable. She spoke perfect english, was knowledgeable about product and was friendly. She makes you money! Pay her MORE boys !!! -Praising Cindy
The rat traps work great we caught 18 mice so Thanks -Terry
Thank you for such prompt and thorough service. -Janis
I received the order today. Thanks for the speedy shipping! Let me know where I can leave you positive feedback and I will be glad to do it! Thanks again -Greg
I can truly say that your service was excellent and I have since recommended you to co-workers and friends. Let me know how I should proceed from here to provide feedback. Thanks again, -Mack
Thank you very much for taking the time to find this installation video for me. I truly appreciate it. I will try to install them this weekend. Thank you.
Love the custom sprayer. Thanks again for your help! -J
Wow! I cannot believe how quickly I received my product . I have always been reluctant to order products online, but your price for the Tempo SC Ultra product was so much better than the price of local businesses that it was worth taking the risk.
I checked out your business along with others via the BBB before placing my order. Your "A" rating helped ease my reluctancy as other online businesses did not rate as well and of course, they were not in Texas.
I am so impressed with your organization, I will not only order from you again, but will refer your organization to everyone I know. I absolutely love the Tempo product for all my pest control needs both in and out side of my home. I will never purchase this from anyone else.
Thank you so much for your professionalism and honesty as an online business. You help set the standards of how these businesses should operate. -Donna
