JT Eaton, which has been manufacturing pest control products since 1949, has developed a line of effective products specifically designed for bed bugs. These products include a bed bug powder made from diatomaceous earth, an oil based pyrethrum contact spray and a water based residual spray with active ingredient deltamethrin. These 3 bed bug products enable consumers to take the upper hand against without the need of a professional exterminator in most cases.
- JT Eaton Kills Bed Bugs- Contact Killer
- JT Eaton Kills Bed Bugs II- Residual for lasting control
- JT Eaton Kills Bed Bugs Powder- Diatomaceous Earth
All 3 products have a purpose and can be used together as an effective bed bug treatment cocktail used in conjunction with steam, mattress encasements, Climbup Insect Intereceptors, PackTite Bed Bug Heater and Hefty Big Bags. We suggest applying the sprays first and then the powder second once the sprays are dry (the powder must remain dry to be effective).
Use the JT Eaton Kills Bed Bugs II (water based) on fabric items including the seams of the mattress, curtains, sofas, chairs, cracks and crevices, and along the baseboards as directed.
JT Eaton Kills Bed Bugs is an oil based spray that includes natural pyrethrum and is great for the bottoms edge and inside furniture where bed bugs could be hiding. Given it’s oil based, I wouldn’t suggest using it on fabric items as it takes a while to dry and there is a risk of staining.
JT Eaton Kills Bed Bugs Powder is a natural diatomaceous earth made from fossilized once celled organisms. The powder should again be applied after the sprays are dry inside cracks and crevices. JT Eaton also manfuacture a powder applicator making offering better control when applying the powder. Powder should not be used liberally and is useful if lightly applied in areas that bed bugs would likely cross over (bed bugs will avoid large mounds of powder). Cracks in baseboards, inside walls through access of electrical outlets (turn power off first and do not apply “inside” the actual outlet) are popular areas to apply JT Eaton Kills Bed Bugs Powder.
We recommend a treatments of JT Eaton Bed Bug spray and powder every two weeks for 3 applications. Before each additional treatment, vacuum up the powder before applying spray. After the spray is applied, apply a fresh application of powder.
When treating a room every square inch of the room should be inspected and areas where bed bugs could possibly be hiding or coming from should be treated (areas where skin contact is not made). We don’t suggest spraying the top of the mattress as it’s always better to use mattress encasements. If encasements are not financially feasible, again spraying the seams of the mattress along the side is helpful.
