Bed Bug Supply Review - see what our experts have to say about this productNuvan PestStrips are a very useful tool when treating sealed closets and items placed in sealed garbage bags. Up until now, treating items such as electronics, shoes, handbags and other items was nearly impossible. With Nuvan professional strength PestStrips, these items can now be easily treated.
Simply remove the Nuvan strips from their sealed enclosure and place inside their hanging holder (looks like an air freshener). Once inserted into the hanging holder, it will begin to emit odorless vapor. This makes it necessary to handle the Nuvan PestStrip with gloves in an open area such as outside or an open garage. Once the PestStrip is put together, place it inside of thick garbage bag or container with the items you would like to treat and seal.
Nuvan ProStrips are odorless leaving no residue or mess to clean up. Nuvan ProStrips emit a vapor chemical called DDVP, which deeply penetrates through just about anything making it very effective against bed bugs.
Items needing to be treated should be placed inside a sealed garbage bag or container for a minimum of 48 hours to ensure all stages of bed bugs are dead (as an option above we offer very large bags big enough to fit a 65" TV or several computers). There is a chance that unhatched eggs may be present, which will require a total of 14 days of treatment inside the sealed bag or container to be effective (this offers enough time for all eggs to hatch and for the newborn bed bug to be exposed to the vapor and die). When removing items that have been treated, allow items to air-out for at least 2 hours in a large open area with fresh air. After two hours the treated items can be put away or placed back into sealed garbage bags or containers to reduce the chances of re-infestation during treatment. Always adhere to the product label and MSDS to ensure safe and effective usage.

For Control of Bedbugs and Bedbug Eggs NUVAN PROSTRIP may be used to control crawling bedbug nymphs and adults exposed to product vapors for 48 hours. In difficult to treat areas, a minimum treatment time of 72 hours will provide better results. NUVAN PROSTRIP may be used to control bedbugs that have entered various items in an infested structure including, but not limited to: electronics, appliances, footwear, art work, collectibles, plush toys, clocks, radios, wall hangings, telephones, computers, printers, mattresses, box springs, books, lamps, furniture and other such items.
Place infested items in a suitable plastic bag, poly sheeting, container or room that is closed to contain the NUVAN PROSTRIP treatment. Plastic bags or poly sheeting should be at least 2 mils thick. The closed volume for treatment should not exceed the volume to be treated for the size of the NUVAN PROSTRIP used. Take care to avoid direct contact of the NUVAN PROSTRIP with the surface of items being treated.
Seal items in the containment for a minimum of 48 hours to kill bedbug nymphs and adults. To kill any bedbug eggs, if suspected to be present, seal items in the treated space for seven days. Seal plastic bags and poly sheeting with as much air space around the treated article as is practical as this will enhance the exposure to the product vapors. Proper seal can be attained by any appropriate manner such as the use of tape, twist ties or other means.
Professionals should test for adequate seal by testing for the escape of air from the sealed bag. Identify sealed treatment by a label indicating a pesticide treatment is in process that should not be disturbed by unauthorized persons. The label should include the date, pest professional person or company responsible and contact telephone number. When treatment is completed, remove treated items from the treatment in a well ventilated area and aired out for a period of not less than two hours.
