When you have a bedbug infestation you need to begin a thorough household disinfection. The reason for this is because bedbugs tend to have their refugia, the place where they reside, in all the small cracks near the place where you sleep. Because of this, it is advisable that you use liquid pesticides and more exactly bedbug sprays.

Bedbugs live in the cracks and crevices of furniture or they crawl deep into the folds of upholstered furniture; they can live mainly anywhere that is hidden to the human eye. But they need to be near a resting body so that they can get their blood meal every two or three days, so we must treat the bed, the box spring, the head board, the base boards around the bed and nearby furniture like bedside tables.

When you begin disinfection you should first vacuum thoroughly and preferably check all the pieces of furniture and all the possible hiding places. Also, the clothes should be washed, preferably at 50 C or above.

Another important step of the disinfection is the use of bedbug sprays. But you need to know more about bedbug sprays, so that you can use the one which suits you the best.

There are many bedbug products available on the market and you might not know which to use, but there are some things you need to know about them. The main criterion is the safest bedbug spray to use on certain surfaces, as all bedbug sprays work on direct contact.

The substances used in these sprays are diverse such as Peritherine, Alcohol and Enzymes and no formula is the same. So, what works best and how can you know if the product is actually working! Here is what you need to know when buying a bedbug spray!

You can treat certain areas with pesticide and dust, but you don’t want to treat certain surfaces where there is human contact, like mattresses, so you need to use a non-residual material on mattress surfaces and chairs. In this case you should use enzyme products. They kill on contact and they’re nearly nontoxic to mammals. A great tip is to use a product that is safe even on human skin, like those which can be used also against head lice.

When applying liquid bedbug sprays, you need to keep in mind that if you apply too much, you can ruin the fabric, overly moist fabric can get moldy and you might need to change it completely.

Also keep in mind that some of the bedbug spray products may emit toxic fumes, so when you use them, use a mask and try not to inhale the fumes. Also, it is preferred that you close the room and not enter it for twelve hours before you air it thoroughly. If you prefer, you may choose a milder one.

So, in the case of bedbug sprays, you need to know that all kill on contact, but the actual selection of the one that will be used depends on you and how you will conduct the disinfection, as well as what areas you desire to use them on.
