Over the years, bed bug treatment has evolved into a need to use a combination of products. This is due to a variety of changes, such as growing bed bug resistance to many common insecticides. Instead of simply spraying around a building or setting off a bug bomb, pest control professionals (as well as homeowners) must use bed bug sprays in combination with other methods, like heat treatment with a steamer or portable heater. The sprays used break down further into two categories: contact sprays that kill bed bugs immediately, and residual sprays that provide long-term effectiveness.
This dependency on multiple spray products may be changing with the rise of Temprid SC. Temprid is Bayer’s newest bed bug solution, and is taking commercial and residential markets by storm. With its unique dual-action compound, Temprid seeks to combine contact killing with residual strength, cutting down on the number of spray products needed to perform a treatment.
In clinical and real-world testing, Temprid has been shown to kill most of a bed bug population immediately while offering up to 6 months of residual protection. It has been proven to be effective against all ages of bed bugs, and their eggs as well. On top of that, Temprid uses chemicals that are effective against resistant strains of bed bugs. This allows Temprid to kill bed bugs that older products like Suspend may not.
Temprid is applied like any other liquid spray: just mix with water in a spray tank, shake the tank up, and start spraying. Unlike many heavy-duty bed bug sprays, Temprid is labeled for use on carpet and upholstered furniture. It has low odor, doesn’t stain, and the residue leaves a clean surface when it evaporates. In addition to bed bugs, Temprid is effective at controlling pests like ants, roaches, spiders, and more.
You can apply Temprid on your mattress, box spring, and upholstered furniture. When doing this, focus on the seams and folding points. You should also spray along cracks and crevices in your floors, behind the baseboard of your bed, and behind hanging mirrors and picture frames. Keep spraying once a week for best results.
