Written records of bed bug infestations and treatments date back to the 1600’s. Up until World War II and the introduction of the pesticide DDT, bed bugs were very common insects in the United States. After media reports and other literature condemned the use of DDT, pest control companies were forced to employ different tactics. This made bed bug extermination a much greater challenge. In recent years, experts have studied bed bug behavior and have reported an increase in infestations, making them a more prominent topic in society.
J.T. Eaton’s Bed Bug Killer II (blue bottle) is a “residual” killer in that it has the ability to offer longer lasting control than a contact killer. Contact killers kill quickly and have no residual. Residuals kill slowly, but last longer. Using the two as a cocktail approach is key to eradicating bed bugs. It’s active ingredient is a synthetic pyrethroid called deltamethrin, which is one of the most popular insecticides used worldwide.
Working in Conjuction with J.T. Eaton’s Bed Bug Killer (red bottle) and JT Eatons Bed Bug Powder (green bottle), bed bugs can be safely and effectively wiped out with deadly precision (always review and follow the bottles label and directions).
Bed bug bites can vary tremendously when it comes to appearance from one person to another. There are a number of variables that determine the look but it predominently boils down to how sensitive your skin is and how your body reacts to them. However the most common bed bug bites look very much like mosquito bites. Sometimes they are quite small and other times then swell larger. It’s extremely difficult to identify the difference between mosquito bites and bed bugs unless you have a severe reaction. That is why bed bug detection devices and traps are imperative to definitively determining if you indeed have bed bugs. I recommend using 1 of these 3 detection methods.
