Cimexa Dust

Cimexa Dust kills bed bug adults, nymphs and nymphs hatched from dusted eggs, including pyrethroid-resistant bed bugs. It is labeled for control of Bed Bugs, Fleas, Ticks, Lice, Roaches, Ants, Firebrats, Silverfish, Spiders, and Mites. It may also be used for the prevention and treatment of drywood termites and is the preferred treatment for brown recluse, yellow sac, hobo and other persistant spiders indoors. Cimexa Insecticide Dust is odorless, non-staining, non-repellent and lasts up to ten years when undisturbed. The broad label allows the product to be used to treat cracks, crevices, voids, attics and many other areas. The engineered silica-based dust has exceptional absorption of water (in liquid form) and oil, destroying the insect's waxy cuticle, causing rapid dehydration and death. Compared to diatomaceous earth, Cimexa Dust has a much higher potency due to its much higher affinity to absorb liquid water and ol, thus control results are over three times faster.
Gentrol IGR

Gentrol IGR spray is a product that works by regulating growth of bed bugs and reducing egg hatch. Gentrol when used with adulticides (Bedlam, Transport GHP, or Temprid FX) will help eliminate infestations. 65% of the exposed nymphs died, 95% less nymphs were produced and 94% less eggs were produced when exposed to Gentrol IGR. Also, repeated lab tests have shown that Gentol concentrate formulated at the label rate actually killed 73% of exposed bed bugs either during or shortly after their finial molt. Break the cycle by using Gentrol in cracks, crevices, moldings, false ceilings, closets, furniture, under beds, and bottom side of box springs (not for use on mattresses). Gentrol comes in an aerosol and concentrate for larger area applications.
Nuvan ProStrip

Nuvan Prostrips work differently than the other products available to combat bedbugs. The active ingredients is an or-ganophosphate, Dichlorvos, insecticide that is highly toxic to bed bugs, and has the advantage of working through vapor action that allow it to get into places where bed bugs hide. Great product for electronics, wall hangings, furniture, shoes and other items that may become damaged by other treatment methods. DDVP is aromatic and escapes from the resin strip slowly over time as a vapor. These DDVP vapors are highly effective against bed bugs and their eggs. Nuvan ProStrips should be used in a plastic bag or container to seal off the area so that fresh air does not enter the treatment area. This also assures that crawling bed bugs trying to escape from treatment are trapped. Providing continued exposure for up to seven days will assure 100% bed bug and egg kill.
CB-80 Insecticide
