Bed Bug Supply Review - see what our experts have to say about this product

JT Eaton Kills Bed Bugs Powder is one of our best selling powders and offers great value, quality and is one of the longest killing bed bug products on the market.

We suggest using our Professional Bed Bug Applicator to apply JT Eaton Bed Bug Powder, which helps to apply the powder with better control and into hard to reach areas. JT Eaton Powder should be applied after the room is steamed and J.T. Eaton Bed Bug Killer (pyrethrin killer), Bedlam Plus and JT Eaton's Bed Bug Killer II (deltamethrin) have been applied and are fully dry. Powder is designed to go into places where the sprays cannot including inside electrical outlets and deep cracks in wall voids, behind picture frames, below the edges of carpeting and rugs, etc.

What we really like about the JT Eaton powder is as long as it's left undisturbed, it will continue to kill indefinitely and only needs to be applied just once during a ed bug treatment. Please see the picture below illustrating where to use each of the J.T Eaton bed bug products. Before applying any of the JT. Eaton bed bug products, we recommend using our Professional Bed Bug Steamer on the edges of the room and inside cracks and crevices (allow to dry for one hour or until fully dry).

J.T Eaton Bed Bug Powder works by treating every deep hiding place bed bugs may attempt to seek refuge in (resulting in no place to hide without being killed). When a bed bug crawls into a treated crack or crevice they are instantly coated in powder, which adheres to their out membrane cutting them up and eventually leading to the bed bugs death due to dehydrations and asphyxiation. Bed bugs are made up of 65% water so it doesn't take a lot of powder to dehydrate and kill them. Bed bug powder can be abrasive to the skin and like any dust should applied carefully to reduce the amount stirred up in the air (a dust mask and eye protection are recommended for application). We offer a Professional Applicator, which offers better control when applying the powder and allows the user to gain access to hard to reach areas.

Apply the bed bug powder directly into the cracks of baseboards, into crevices and inside walls by removing the electrical plates (do not powder into the electrical outlet). Apply powder only into cracks and crevices (places where bed bug hide) and not all over the place in large powder mounds. If applied properly, you shouldn't be able to visibly see the powder. Always follow the product's label for proper usage and precautions. Unless the powder is disturbed, wet or vacuumed up with a HEPA equipped vacuum, an additional application is not needed. Again, powder should also be applied after the room is steamed and the first application of JT Eaton Kills Bed Bugs Red Bottle Contact Killer and either our Phantom Aerosol, Bedlam Bed Bug Spray or JT Eaton Bed Bug Killer II (blue bottle) is applied. Bed bug powder should be kept dry and away from moisture to be effective. Always read and follow the instructions on the product's label to ensure proper and safe usage.

Product Information

Diatomaceous Earth is made up of ground fossilized material, which acts like tiny razor blades that cut open the outer layer of the bed bug causing them to dehydrate and asphyxiate.

The powder can applied inside indoor cracks, around electrical outlets, inside walls, between carpet and the wall and around electronics. Unlike other diatomaceous earth powders, JT Eaton is labeled for use against bed bugs ensuring effectiveness.

Where To Apply:
• Behind stoves and refrigerator
• Along the seams and folds of mattresses before certified bedding encasements are applie
• Behind picture frames
• Between the carpeting and baseboards or cracks inside the baseboards (if applied properly you shouldn't be able to see the powder)
• Inside electrical outlets (by remove the outlet faceplates and dusting all 4 corners of the inside cavity - be sure power is off and do not powder where the plug goes).
• Inside deep cracks of furniture (if a credit card can fit in the crack a bed bug can too!
• Please see the illustration of the bedroom below for a more detailed list of places to apply.
About J.T. Eaton

Founded in 1932 by Jasper T. Eaton, the company started as a mail order house for pest control products for professional use.

Stanley Z. Baker purchased the company in 1949. Never satisfied, Stanley developed new and innovative products for professional pest control operators.

In 1962 Stanley invented the paraffin bait block which is the industry standard today.

Again in 1979 Stanley developed the first glue board as we know them today. Before that, some professionals used the radiators of their cars to melt industrial glue and spread the glue across wood planks or tar paper.

Since then, J.T. Eaton has gone on to create innovative products for the pest control industry as well as the retail industry. Most recently J.T. Eaton launched an extremely successful Bed Bug insecticide, a Top Loader bait stations, green light flying insect catchers and advanced seed bait place packs.

J.T. Eaton is a family-run business that offers a complete line of products designed to help pest management professionals provide quality service to their customers. All J.T. Eaton products are available in a variety of sizes, when applicable, to fit the needs of any firm. J.T. Eaton also commits to quality products with the integrated pest management (IPM) strategy in mind.

Questions and Answers

Q: doe the powder ommit an odor is it safe for pets and kids with allergies?
Asked by: summer - 11/4/2013
The powder doesn't emit an odor that any of us at Bed Bug Supply can detect. It is safe for pets and children with allergies; however, it shouldn't be applied anywhere that people or pets can come in contact with it. Powder should be applied only in deep cracks, crevices, and joints, where the powder is not visible from the surface after it's been applied. Scattering the powder in open spaces is not recommended.
Q: How long do it take to kill?
Asked by: selena - 11/5/2013
Diatomaceous earth does not have a set range of kill time. The time to kill varies depending on where the powder is, the manner in which it was applied, and how the bed bug crawled through it. All of this affects how much powder gets on the bug. Fortunately, the powder works indefinitely as long as it stays dry.
Q: can I put it on my dog?
Asked by: dale sauve - 1/3/2014
Please do not apply any form of insecticide on your dog. Nothing that kills bed bugs is safe for use on humans or pets. Also, it's highly unlikely that bed bugs are on your pet to begin with; if you believe a bug is on your dog, it's more likely a flea or tick.
Q: I have a three story 2 bdrm townhouse but I believe I only have bedbugs on the third floor. How much de do I need to get?
Asked by: kim - 5/16/2014
You likely won't need more than one small bottle of diatomaceous earth, as it's not intended to cover the entire area that you're treating. Powder should only be applied in deep cracks and crevices throughout the room, like along baseboards, floorboards, and the edges of the carpet. When done properly, you shouldn't see the powder at all after you're done applying it. For this reason, you won't need a lot of powder to include it in your treatment process.
Q: Is this food grade?
Asked by: Cheri Hutson - 6/26/2014
This product is not considered food grade, as there is no need to put it through the purification process for its intended purpose.
Q:  1.- how long dose it take to kill them? 2.- is it safe for human contact?
Asked by: bill - 7/31/2014
Once the bed bugs come in contact with the diatomaceous earth, they typically die of dehydration within one to two days. This will vary depending on where and how the powder was applied, and how much powder stuck to the bug's waxy shell. Diatomaceous earth is generally safe for human contact. However, when applied correctly, human contact won't happen. Diatomaceous earth should only be applied in deep cracks and crevices in the room, such as along baseboards, floorboards, and the edge of the carpet.
Q: Is this product harmful to cats?
Asked by: thomas - 8/2/2014
Diatomaceous earth is generally considered safe for mammals, including cats. However, make sure that you don't apply it in open areas, as that's not how it is intended to be used against bed bugs. Diatomaceous earth should only be applied in deep cracks and crevices in the room, like along baseboards, floorboards, and the edges of the carpet. When applied correctly, your cat won't be able to reach the powder to come in contact with it.
Q: Do you sprinkle the powder on the matterss?
Asked by: gail - 11/19/2014
We advise not putting powder on the mattress as you may possibly inhale the powder. Instead, simply encase the mattress with a SafeRest encasement, treat the frame and apply ClimbUp Insect interceptors. Also be sure to move the bed away from the wall and remove any non-essential pillows and bed skirts.
Q: Can it be used on a mattress or inside a mattress cover?
Asked by: gina - 3/21/2015
While the product is labeled for use on mattresses, we still feel that a contact and residual spray combination (like STERIFAB and Bedlam Plus) would be a much more effective way to treat a mattress. Once a mattress cover is installed, there is no need to treat the mattress any further.
Q: Is it safe to use on the vents and my whole house is wood floors do I use all over the floors as well and move out for a couple days and then mop and reapply in around baseboards and outlets?
Asked by: Gabrielle aka Being ate alive - 6/14/2015
What you're describing is not a recommended treatment process, and is not the method of use that is described on the product label. To ensure safe and effective treatment, never use any EPA registered product in a way that is not described on the label. For a method more proven effective than what you're describing, see our 4-step solution.

Bed Bug Powder
We used the powder in the walls, faceplates and places where we though bed bugs might be hiding. We put the powder down 3 days after the sprays as instructed and worked. We are now bed bug free. I would suggest following the steps carefully.

I us the power and for the most part it worked good. When you have these bugs there is no quick fix. I work for two months trying to get rid of the bugs. What I have to do was finely move everything out of the room. Inspect everything. You will not beleive were I found the bugs. After everything is out dust everywhere. BE 100% SURE THERE IS NO BUGS IN THE ITEMS YOU BRING BACK INTO THE ROOM OR YOU JUST WASTED YOUR TIME!
