Bed Bug Sprays, Are They Worth Using

There are some powerful insecticides and pesticides out there that have been proven to kill bed bugs, however, the same chemicals have become dangerous to humans and have been banned since. I mean the pesticide DDT and those with similar chemical composition. Since the ban on the types of pesticides, bed bugs have made a comeback and they are starving!

Environment and researchers have been trying their best to come up with different solutions that are not toxic to humans and safe for use around the entire family. Luckily some companies like have introduced natural targeted and effective bed bug solutions that can handle the toughest bed bug infestation. 

Even now, 1 out of every 4 homes have signs of a bed bug infestation. So that leaves us with the question, what kind of spray that is effective? Most sprays designed to kill bugs on contact. Others are made to remain effective long after application.

For example, when the bugs come into contact with the residue of pyrethroids, which is a type of insecticide, killing them almost instantly. Pyrethroids are made from extracts of chrysanthemum flowers. Most sprays come with a different strain of pyrethroids.

Although the chemicals are known to quickly knock down the bugs that come in contact with it, it can be irritating to humans who have long exposure to it. The best way is to use a bed bug spray in a well-ventilated area and in places where no human contact often. The mattress is not going to be a good place to use this spray.
