For control of bed bugs, apply as a spot, crack-and-crevice or void treatment behind attached headboards, baseboards, mirrors and picture frames, as well as around moldings, door frames, window frames, shelving and edges of carpet or other floor coverings. Do not use on bed linens, bed frames, mattresses, box springs, or other areas where human contact is common.
Researchers at Rutgers University1 have found that an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach can be an effective way to control bed bugs. For example, significant bed bug reduction can occur when a steam application is directed at bed bugs found on mattresses, box springs, bed frames and sofas, and then supplemented with a chemical application to labeled areas.
