Competition in the market of domestic insecticides has led to the fact that most of the funds from bugs today have very high efficiency. Especially it is characteristic for chemical preparations. At the same time, manufacturers of such products in pursuit of the customer do everything to ensure that the product was not only effective, but also simple and safe to use.
It is not surprising that practically every effective remedy for bed bugs can be safely applied in an apartment where children, pets and plants live. With the observance of the necessary rules, of course. About such opportunities a few decades ago, residents of private and apartment buildings could not even dream of.
Rules for choosing a remedy for bedbugs
Of all the variety of drugs on the market, the most effective remedy for bed bugs should be selected according to several criteria:
- The presence in its composition of a well-proven insecticide. The composition of each drug can be easily found on the Internet, and the effectiveness of a key insecticide will be surely described in specialized forums.
If the composition of the facility is not disclosed in detail, and the seller leaves it from a direct answer and indicating the complex name of the chemical compound, there is a risk of buying a fake or useless mixture.
- Availability of reviews. In the ideal case - reviews of real, from familiar or living people. If you evaluate reviews on the Internet, you should at least explore several sites to avoid customized opinions. Otherwise, instead of the most effective and safe means from bugs, there is a risk to choose the most untwisted.
- Manufacturer. Not necessarily this should be a European remedy: many domestic or, for example, Korean drugs are extremely effective. However, buying a compound in a bank with inscriptions in a foreign language and without a strictly prescribed in Russian instruction on use is not worth it.
- Safety means. Today, the power of the means from bugs is fully combined with its complete or relative harmlessness to humans or pets, and therefore it is not necessary to use superpowers without fail. It is necessary to look for not only the most effective tool, but combining the optimal level of efficiency, security and price.
There are a few more recommendations born of their practical experience, which work in most cases:
- To choose a professional remedy for bedbugs, you can contact the local insect control service and ask questions as a potential customer. In particular, to find out what means they use. However, professional drugs require a professional approach. Perhaps it will be harder to work with them than with simple home remedies.
- If there is a suspicion that the bedbugs have moved to the apartment from neighbors, you can ask them what means they used. And then - buy another. An effective remedy for bugs with proper application will destroy insects for certain, and if they are left after treatment, then their drug was ineffective. In addition, even an effective remedy for bedbugs at home can cause the emergence of a stable population of parasites, and using it against insects will again be meaningless.
- Do not use ultrasonic scarers that do not affect the activity of bedbugs at all.
To date, the Russian market of drugs to combat bugs has formed a set of tools that in varying degrees combine efficiency, ease of use and safety.
Let's try to evaluate which of them will be the most optimal choice.
Insecticide means the Executioner - the German leader in the fight against bugs
The executioner is today produced by Russian enterprises under a German license. The active substance of the drug is a solution of fenthion - a substance that exerts a neuro-paralytic effect on bedbugs.
In the body of warm-blooded animals and humans, fenthion is rapidly neutralized by special enzymes, and therefore the danger can only be present in the body in very large quantities.
The executioner is a very effective remedy for bedbugs. With proper use, the flat of any infection gets rid of bedbugs with its help in a few hours. The hangman is sold in household and Internet shops in small bottles.
The contents of one bottle must be dissolved in 0.5 liters of water and sprayed on a maximum number of surfaces using any spray (usually using household chemicals - Mr. Muscle, Sanklin and others).
Response: "Three times called in the hostel SES. It did not help, a week after the treatment bugs did not disturb, and then it all started again. This is despite the fact that all the rooms in the hostel were being processed. In the end, they folded themselves, bought several boxes of these bottles (it turned out for 55 rubles a bottle for wholesale), each processed his room himself. And what do you think? More bugs in the hostel was not! "
Dima Kokanyuk, Kiev
One bottle is enough to handle the sofa or part of the skirtings in the room. One-room apartment usually takes 20-25 bottles.
On average, the price of one bottle of the Executioner today is 70-100 rubles.
Klopomor is a powerful Russian development
Of all the drugs offered on sale, Klopomor is among the means of high efficiency. It consists of cypermethrin, permethrin and piperonyl butoxide, thanks to which a 300 ml Klopomor vial will be sufficient for processing a two-room apartment.
However, the effectiveness of Klopomor was increased due to a slight decrease in its safety. The drug is quite toxic, and should be used only in an empty apartment. After processing the room in it, you need to thoroughly clean and air.
Feedback on the drug Klopomor: "Oh and powerful this Klopomor. Already during the treatment room bugs began to crawl out from under the pictures and die. You could not even wait a couple of hours after the persecution, they all died in the process. True, my hands were scratching after him, but the instructions strictly stated that I should work with gloves, but I ignored it. But in general I advise, the result will be. "
Combat against bedbugs
Combat battalion is also quite an effective remedy for bed bugs, developed and produced in Korea.
Effective in much the same way as the Executioner, but more expensive. Its important advantages are:
- ease of use - it is available in air freshener type cylinders with additional nozzles that allow the processing of narrow slits and holes
- Invisibility of application - the flavoring agents of mint or lemon are added to the product, and therefore, when used, the Combat gives the impression of an air freshener
The disadvantage of the Combat is its relatively high cost: to handle the most carefully two-room apartment with furniture, you will have to spend about 2000 rubles for cans. Approximately the same number of services are services of pest control.
Feedback on Combat: "I do not know where, but the apartment has bugs. We were immediately told that the usual means against them do not work. We bought three Kombat balloons, popshikali on the plinth, a mattress on the bed, a baby crib was processed. On the day we went to the parents, then we went into the apartment. Bugs after that were not there. But the lemon smelled for a long time))) ".
Used even then, when the Executioner and Klopomora did not exist even in theory, Carbophos has not lost its relevance today. Despite the fact that, in terms of its efficiency, it is inferior to many novelties, the availability and ease of use (especially the ready-made solution in cans) makes it possible to use it in rural areas or for processing auxiliary premises.
Carbofos is quite simple to use: it is enough to spray a solution of its desired concentration with a spray or brush, apply to the maximum number of surfaces, allow to stand for several hours (optimally - a day) and then rinse with a damp cloth.
The response: "I'll tell you so - forget about all these newfangled tricks and poison Carbophos. A universal thing. Fast, efficient, reliable. We once etched the dacha, and for four years, like no bugs have been seen. Probably, our whole street after this, Carbophos bought. "
Of all the effective remedies against bedbugs, Carbophos is one of the most accessible. To process a one-room apartment you will need to spend a powder or a liquid solution in a canister for the amount of about 400-500 rubles. At the same time, Carbophos is really a true remedy for bedbugs, and so far there are no known cases of the appearance of insects resistant to it.
Pencil Mashenka from bedbugs
Choosing what an effective remedy for bugs to buy, you can remember about the usual since the post-perestroika times insecticide crayons. Today, they changed their composition a little, becoming even more dangerous for bedbugs and less harmful to humans.
Of these, specifically against bedbugs, Melo Mashenka is the best person, since it includes cypermethrin and deltamethrin - the substances most effective against bugs.
"And I got rid of bedbugs from ordinary chalk. Masha is called. Feet at the bed smeared, the mattress from the inside, skirting. Already in the first days of biting stopped, and then regularly began to find dead bugs in the apartment. Now they do not bother me at all. From that chalk, even a piece remained, I sometimes smear a box of the front door, so that from neighbors, if something does not come running. "
Alena Igorevna, Dnepropetrovsk
Advantage of Mashenka is the ability to combat bugs without temporary evacuation of residents from the apartment.
Pencil should be smeared skirting, the place of departure of wall-paper from walls, legs and skeletons of beds. A strip of chalk in 3-4 centimeters is an insurmountable obstacle for bedbugs, and therefore at least with the help of a pencil it is possible to deprive insects of access to food. And if you treat them places of congestion of bugs, most of the insects will die from poisoning.
Masha Mashenka is quite accessible: one pencil costs about 10 rubles and allows you to process most of the surfaces in the apartment.
Remedy for bedbugs Fufanon
Fufanon is an effective Dutch remedy designed to combat all insects in the apartment. It is produced in the form of a 57% emulsion concentrate in the form of ampoules, as well as in cans.
Specifically against bedbugs, it is necessary to dissolve the concentrate of Fufanone in water in the ratio of 5 ml of the emulsion concentrate to 2 liters of water. 50 ml of this solution is sufficient for processing one square meter of the room.
The room is treated by Fufanon in the same way as the Executioner. When working with the drug, it is advisable to use gloves and glasses, it is necessary to apply the drug on the surface in the absence of animals and people in the room. A few hours after the treatment, a wet cleaning should be done.
On a note
Fufanon is widely used in the work of disinfestation services due to its effectiveness and accessibility.
Feedback on Fufanon: "We called SES. Indeed, the guys are specialists. For two hours the apartment was processed so that no bugs, no cockroaches left at all. We asked them what means they use. They said that Fufanon. "
Medilis Ziper is a preparation developed to combat insects in agriculture. Has a very wide range of effects, including the destruction of bed bugs.
However, its disadvantage is the focus primarily on working in conditions of open street spaces, and therefore using it in an apartment requires intensive ventilation and cleaning after use.
Feedback on the use of Medilis Zieper means: "We took a long time to choose a remedy for bedbugs, tried Reid and Tetrix, but the bugs came back. Then my mother-in-law advised the remedy she uses for tomatoes in the garden. Medilis Ziper is called. We carried out a full treatment of the apartment and only after that the bedbugs ceased to appear. True, I had to combine the treatment with the trip for a week to the seas. Six days the apartment was sour at this facility with closed windows ... "
Effective remedy for bedbugs without smell - Get
Many drugs from bedbugs have an unpleasant smell, which persists in the room sometimes for months. However, a number of modern high-tech insecticides are not deprived of this defect, and an example is the preparation from the bedbugs Get.
The basis of this agent is insecticide chlorpyrifos, dispersed in the aquatic environment to the state of microcapsules (that's why the drug is called microencapsulated). This form of insecticide, together with a virtually complete absence of odor, allows long-term preservation of high efficiency on the treated surfaces.
The sooner I did not bug the bedbugs , it's all to no avail. Not only did all the bitten food go around, so it was still barely digging itself from these stifling smells. When she bought, she thought that I would run into another pacifier. Then for a long time I could not believe that bedbugs really die. Bundles! Wonderful action and without any smells.
It is important to remember that even the most effective remedy for bedbugs will only have a temporary effect if you treat it to an apartment in a completely contaminated apartment building. Already a couple of weeks after the destruction of bedbugs, parasites from neighboring apartments will move into the room, and the operation will have to be repeated again and again.
That is why in multi-apartment buildings treatment should be carried out jointly by all residents of apartments infected with bedbugs. Only in this case it is possible to achieve the destruction of parasites once and for all.
