Traveling is one of the most common ways that people get bed bug infestations. Bed bugs are expert hitchhikers, and can make their way from person to person by hiding in clothes, luggage, or other personal belongings. Once they’re tucked away safely, they can stow away to the home of their new host. That’s why JT Eaton Kills Bedbugs, Ticks and Mosquitoes is such an important bed bug travel protection tool — it’s unique labeling allows you to use it on your luggage to kill or repel bed bugs while on the go.
Bed bugs often spread in high-traffic areas like airplanes, airports, trains, cruise ships, and hotel rooms. JT Eaton Kills Bedbugs, Ticks and Mosquitoes can help prevent this by stopping bed bugs from hiding in your luggage in the first place. The active ingredient, permethrin, is a residual insecticide that can repel or kill bed bugs for up to six weeks after it’s been applied. This spray is also a popular choice for repelling mosquitoes outdoors, and for treating common household pests like fleas, ticks, cockroaches, spiders, and carpet beetles.
Using JT Eaton Kills Bedbugs, Ticks and Mosquitoes
In a home bed bug treatment, you can use JT Eaton Kills Bedbugs, Ticks and Mosquitoes on the tufts and seams of mattresses, along the floor and baseboards, and into cracks and crevices throughout the room. Make sure to let the treated surfaces dry before you come in contact with them, and that you read and follow the product label and MSDS for safe and effective usage.
If you’re preparing for a trip, you can treat your suitcase or other luggage before packing your belongings. Just unzip the main compartment and lay it open, making sure that the inside is empty. Then we’re going to spray the outer and inner surfaces with a light mist, paying close attention to the zippers. Give the luggage plenty of time to dry, then you can pack in your personal belongings.
To protect against ticks, chiggers, and mosquitoes, you can treat your clothing before putting it on. Spray the outer surfaces of your shirt, pants, and socks with a slow sweeping motion. The goal is to lightly moisten the fabric and not drench it. Let the clothes dry for a couple of hours before wearing them — you don’t want this spray to come in contact with your skin. While you wait, you can also treat camping gear like tents, tarps, sleeping bags, backpacks and mosquito nets. The same rule applies for these items as for clothing: spray the outside surfaces, and not where the fabric comes in contact with your skin.
JT Eaton Kills Bedbugs, Ticks and Mosquitoes is a unique asset in pest prevention and control. The flexible label makes this single product useful in the home, outdoors, and even on the go. That kind of versatility is rare in today’s world of specialized insecticides.
