So, how accurate is this?

So, in this post, I seek to verify these claims by undertaking a thorough review of Bed Bug Bully.
So, let’s get started!

Bed Bug Bully – Key Features
1. Long Residual Protection
Bed Bugs Bully is created to have a long residue effect – it’ll last even about 30 days.
Therefore, the pesticide will continue exterminating the bugs for a long time after the first bed bug treatment.
However, its good to repeat the bed bug treatment using this pesticide for about 3-4 times after a number of weeks.
2. Contact-killing Pesticide
The pesticide will kill the bugs simply on contact and thus great for controlling bed bugs you can see in your home.
However, this could be a disadvantage because the bed bugs might be hidden inside crevices, cracks or inside carpet fibers.
3. Non-Poisonous / Non-toxic
As we’ve noted above, bed bug bully mainly is made from natural oils including castor oil, clove oil, citronella oil, and mint oil.
The product has no toxic chemicals and thus will be safe to use around your family members, other humans and pets.
This can be contrasted to using other pesticide like the best bed bug fogger that would require you, your family and all pets leave the house for about 12 hours after setting them off.

I dare say that the bed bug insecticide will work for most weather conditions – including winter and summer killing bed bug adults and their babies.
Alternative to Bed Bug Bully to Kill Bed Bugs
Traditional pesticides are just as effective or the naturally developed bed bug killers. A great pointer is Steri Fab that’s definitely trusted by many people in exterminating bed bugs from their business premises and also homes.
However, sadly, most bed bug sprays is ineffective in controlling bed bugs or they’ll have lower efficiency level.
For this, I suggested that you use a combination of different bed bug control techniques including Eco Defense, mattress encasements, diatomaceous earth, and dry bed bug steamers.
1. Mattress Encasements
Bed bugs will always be looking for dark and warm places to hide – and mattresses are such good locations. However, you can use bed bugs mattress encasement as they’ll safeguard the mattress against any such attacks.
Further, any bed bugs that’ll locked insider the mattress encasement will lack the chance to take their regular blood meals and will thus starve to death. This is mainly because bed bugs can’t bite through clothing or fabrics.
However, you can also use box spring encasement if you’re using box springs. Also, ensure that the encasement aren’t damaged or scratched since this will provide entry or exit points for bed bugs and their babies.
2. Diatomaceous Earth
Diatomaceous Earth will be a great alternative to bed bugs bully because it’s cheap, non-toxic, and it’s all-natural – it’ll prevent the bugs from moving around your house and thus spreading carelessly.
However, DE must not be used alone as it’ll have lower kilning effectiveness. DE is a natural white power that’s manufactured from sea rocks.
Luckily, it’ll tear the bed bug’s skin, dehydrate it by taking out its body fluids and thus kill it. So, simply pout some amount of the DE over the floors and furniture in your house where the bed bugs will be walking.
3. Dry Bed Bug Steamers
Steamers are an excellent way to treat bed bug in your walls, cabinets, mattresses, furniture, chairs, and sofas.
For example, most steamers will generate steam at over 200 degree that’ll exterminate both bed bugs eggs and adults.
Luckily, steam will easily reach the bed bugs while hiding in the crevices, cracks, and baseboards. However, only shift the steamer at 1 inch every second while treating these blood sucking bugs in your house.
The machine has nozzles that’ll release small amounts of the dry steam. However, the machine must be use cautiously as it can burn kids and pets with the high temperature steam.
Also, remember to use a respirator to protect yourself from ant gages or chemical that might be released.
A vacuum will enable you to keenly clean all the tough spots and corners that may easily hide bed bugs and their babies.
However, be sure to securely seal the vacuum bag before disposing it after you’ve finished vacuuming. Next, ensure to thoroughly wash the vacuum cleaner to remove all the bed bug eggs, the babies and adults.
These, if not removed well, could trigger a bed bug re-infestation. Further, store the vacuum machine in a sealed bag – this will prevent re-infestation.
5. Wash Fabrics with Hot water
Next, you can was you clothes with very water and then dry them to kill the bed bugs and all their existing eggs.
Use a dryer to kill bed bugs with a least – but ensure to check the maximum temperature recommendation for each cloth fabric.
