Meloch Masha from bedbugs

мелок Машенька

Bedbugs are a scourge of many modern houses and apartments. These parasites have extremely high adaptive abilities, so when combating them in the course are various means: domestic poisoning, liquid solutions, traps. As well as well-proven in the fight against cockroaches chalk Masha in the destruction of bedbugs, too, finds its application.

Crayons from insects have gained great popularity since the time of the USSR. With their help residents of apartment buildings displayed cockroaches, ants, bugs, moths and other unwanted animals in the premises. It was fine to use it - just like ordinary school chalk, and unlike most other household insecticides, it did not have a specific odor.

In addition, the chalk itself was perceived as something positive and with a small amount of humor.

Maybe it was a qualitative composition or a convenient form of the remedy, but Meshenka's crayon from bugs was no less effective than from cockroaches, and saved more than one family from these harmful and importunate insects. Now it can also be found on the shelves of stores and market layouts next to other, more modern means.

It must be said that the chalk Masha still enjoys a stable popularity. This is not surprising, because it is very simple to use, non-toxic to humans and animals. You can use it not only to destroy insects, but also to prevent their appearance: for example, if bedbugs are wound up in neighbors and can move from them.

The composition of

Mashka Mashkin consists of only four components, two of which are auxiliary (chalk and gypsum). The active substances are:

  • Zeta-cypermethrin 0.1%. It is an insecticide that is used to get rid of parasites of crops, as well as from domestic pests. It affects the nervous system of insects, blocking the transmission of impulses. As a consequence, when the insect enters the body, the substance leads to a halt in the work of all the muscles, which causes the parasite to die. At the same time, the substance in small amounts is safe for humans and warm-blooded animals.
  • Deltamethrin is 0.05%. It is an insecticide that complements the action of the first and has a similar mechanism of work. Has a similar paralyzing effect on insects.

Of all the substances in the pyrethroid group, it is precisely Cypermethrin and Deltamethrin that are the most effective blockers of nerve transmission in the body of insects. It is thanks to them that Mashenka has such a high efficiency.

Due to the consistency of chalk the applied substances are clearly fixed on the surface and do not wear off from it. Upon contact of the bug with the treated surface, the poison gets on its feet, and then through the proboscis - into the digestive system. Already sucked into the body in the blood, and he begins to work.

If an infected bug touches another individual before it dies, it will also be poisoned. Thanks to this, Mashenka works according to the "viral" principle.

Feedback on the use of Mashenka chalk:

When bedbugs noticed at the dacha, they decided to act in the old manner and plastered all the rooms with pencil Mashenka a week before the holiday. Melok again helped: in two weeks no bug bitten us. Only mosquitoes were tormented ...

Alexandra, Samara

Poisonous substances Malkenka chalks have an active effect for 4-6 weeks after application.

On a note:

Unlike most other insecticides, the components of Mashenka are quite resistant to weathering and moisture. Therefore, chalk, being smeared on the surface, retains its activity for a long time. But these same properties require the protection of young children in the home.

Composition Masha and the form of the drug cause the specificity of his work: the pencil does not act quickly and immediately, but prevents the movement of bedbugs in the apartment and within a few days destroys most of them. With a systematic fight against parasites, he will completely eliminate their apartment.

Terms of use of Mashenka chalks

To store the unused or the started product necessarily it is necessary in a dark place, as its active substances have property to disintegrate under influence of a sunlight.

Depending on the preferences and type of premises, you can use one of three ways of handling from bedbugs :

  • directly "drawing" with chalk;
  • dusting with crushed chalk (this method is most toxic due to the risk of inhaling dust);
  • Wet treatment - slip of the room with a chalk dissolved in water.

There are no fundamental differences in efficiency, depending on the method of application of the chalk. Easier and faster, of course, to process the room with a stick of chalk. When combating bed bugs, one pencil is enough for a room of 30 square meters.

It is advisable to work in protective gloves, especially if you plan to use several chalks at a time. After finishing the treatment, hands and face must be washed with soap. If dust from the product has got into the eyes, you should rinse abundantly with running water.

In the fight against bed bugs, it is advisable to move furniture away from the walls in advance, check the skirting board for cracks and peelings. It is there that bugs can live. We need to shoot pictures from the walls, as they will also be processed. If it is possible to disassemble the sofa or bed to the base (solid foundation), this should also be done.

One more tip:

"When they entered the new apartment, they were horrified! Bedbugs were everywhere - and in the wallpaper and in the couch. We were bitten by a small child (3 years old). They thought they would run away from there sooner, but their parents advised Mashenka's pencil from bedbugs. It is cheap and sold everywhere. My husband sent us to his mother, and he pushed all the furniture away and everywhere he missed them. Do not believe me, but after 2-3 days the whole affliction is over. Although I just keep the chalk in case I prevent it and periodically smear it for prophylaxis. "

Marina, Moscow

Before use, it is necessary to release the chalk from the package, leaving its lower part. Take it should be for this half-protected polyethylene. Then the necessary surfaces are smeared. Strips are carried out boldly, in width they should be 2-4 cm. First of all, the following sites are treated from domestic bugs:

  • The whole room along the perimeter, the surface of the floor and the plinth, the lower part of the walls. If the plinths are damaged, then all the cracks are treated additionally. By the way, it is for such hard-to-reach or narrow areas that you can use an aqueous solution of chalk, typing it with a brush for drawing. Dissolve the chalk in a small amount of water to produce gruel, it should be sufficiently concentrated.
  • Back surface of carpets or carpet.
  • The back surface of the furniture, special attention is paid to its lower part.
  • Bed frame, possibly the bottom of a mattress or cushions.
  • The back surface of the paintings.
  • If there are lagging old wallpaper on the walls, the places of "denuding" the walls where the wallpaper lags behind them (they like to hide bugs and their larvae).

The main part of the insects should disappear within 2-3 days after treatment. Even if all the individuals do not disappear at once, it will happen within a week or two.


"When I lived in Khrushchev with my parents, all the bitten people woke up in the morning. Although the houses are clean, the neighbors are all normal. Guessed somehow look under the mattress - it's horrible, everything is teeming with bedbugs. I sat down at the computer and read that they do not like the smell of wormwood. And the parents remembered that earlier, from the bedbugs, Crayon Mashenka helped. We bought this pencil, smeared it everywhere, we hung wormwood just in case. I will not say that at once, but after a couple of weeks the parasites disappeared. They found many dead and dying, and then they disappeared. "

After 4-6 weeks, traces of the drug on visible and large surfaces are washed off with a soap-soda solution.

Pencil Mashenka and protection of the apartment from the appearance of bugs

It is convenient to work with chalk and to prevent the appearance of bugs in the apartment.

Prevention is carried out in those cases when bed bugs already appeared in the room earlier, or if it became known that they are from someone from the neighbors. Means from bedbugs Mashenka is perfect for such cases, because you can use the room immediately after processing it.

Algorithm for preventive treatment is almost the same as for the destruction of insects. The only difference is that you do not need to so thickly smear the treated areas, enough strips 1 cm wide.

In order to prevent the penetration of bedbugs into the apartment from neighbors, it is necessary to process the areas under the windows and around them, as well as the box and threshold of the entrance door. If there is a tambour near the apartment, it is advisable to carry out preventive treatment there.

After the expiration of the insecticide (4-6 weeks), it will also have to be washed off with a soap-soda solution.

Melochka Mashenka allows you to fight with bedbugs with small forces and without serious financial costs. The price of one pencil today is 6-10 rubles, and to process the apartment will require about 3-4 pencils. Therefore, if the brigade of pest control is very expensive to call, but you need a really working method - you can use Meshenka's chalk.

  1. Bakhtiyar :

    Anointed, the effect is zero.

    • I need a dream) :

      One day, about 15 years ago, Masha helped a lot. I've already forgotten what bedbugs are, and here you are. Anointed one, caught and planted with chalk, waiting for the effect))

  2. Olga :

    Caught the bug in a jar, cut off a small piece of Masha (chalk) - the effect of zero.

    • Paul :

      I bought it in Auchan. During the night the bed bug turned upside down.

    • Anonymous :

      We had to wait 24 hours. And I also did such an experience - he died. The poison does not work right away, as I understand it, and it's good, he has time to return to the nest and there by effect everyone starts to get infected and die. Blotted out all the walls, floor, beds, cabinets. True, it became a bit bad, overdone, probably) Well, while no one has yet seen, I will wait 2 weeks at least, eggs hatch.

  3. Peter :

    Did not help.

  4. Bolat :

    After being smeared with a pencil, everyone in the apartment became ill. Do not buy, is dangerous to health.

  5. Anonymous :

    It helps, even how! A week ago there was an invasion of bloodsuckers (apparently, drove the neighbors), I outlined "Masha" a few lines around the rookery and pretended to be asleep. An hour later he turned on the light and watched such a picture: insects that had left for the night hunt, who stood in a stupor, instead of quickly making legs, who crawled along in a mad dying frenzy, barely bumping into each other. Some of the latter I caught and put on the table for further observation, but they did not show anything intelligible, gradually fading, lay down on their backs, one by one and, pulling them with slower paws, shamefully sang, by arrangement. Eventually, having lost any interest for me, they were sent to an ashtray. And those on which the Estonian skating rink did not stand for a long time in a stupor, but simply stupidly disappeared, fell off and arranged a mass grave, first at the junction of the side of the sofa and, in fact, the rookery, and finally, at the last point of registration - in the belly of the vacuum cleaner . It should be noted that this struggle is not the first. Two years ago these "guests" came to me, but then I was in a panic, frantically leafing through the websites, horrified by the futility of the struggle (apparently, the authors of the company's employees who go and hunt these and similar animals). And, at last, I stopped at Mashenka, but podzapustil this case and so I had to fight longer, but for 2-3 weeks they completely disappeared. What a pity that I did not think to cut off a piece of chalk, throw in a jar and in the same cabinet to launch a couple of insects! Well, I'm not born for such research, that here you can write!

  6. Light :

    As it seems to me, Masha is not for nothing in the market for so many years. I remember how much I do not care who you do not come to visit, everywhere it was smeared with chalk. It's now forgotten about this chalk! At the moment, I have bugs in my house and the baby is small for 2 months, the other's poison will not do, so my parents were punished to buy a little crayon Mashenka!

  7. Anonymous :

    Yes it helps, but you should buy fresh chalk and repeat after 2 weeks. But if there are mice or neighbors in the house, after some time (about a month) they will appear again. Allergic reactions cause, but this is perhaps the most effective of the available. Dichlorvos has almost no effect.

  8. Eva :

    Tell me, I have a feeling that the cat ate this chalk, from the walls licked, although it eats. Help!

  9. Oksana :

    Used Raptor from bedbugs, and then missed all Mashenka, as written in the article. It helped! Now once a month, we smear this chalk for the prevention of the plinth behind the sofas.

  10. Alex :

    I helped the chalk, I've been living without bedbugs for 4 weeks! At the primary treatment I used chalk and Raptor. Since Raptor immediately acts (once processed everything), but instantly, and chalk gradually, but longer on the bloodsuckers. While the crayon is not washed))

  11. Luba :

    Mashenka is good at helping. Now we use it for prevention.

  12. Christie :

    Anointed everywhere little, Masha, waiting for the effect)) I really hope that helps.

    • Anonymous :

      Tell me where you bought Masha, I will not find in Moscow?

  13. Oleg :


  14. Anonymous :

    Does not help! Bedbugs on the contrary from him in ecstasy, ran out of shelters directly to me by the side, while I was sleeping.

  15. VV :

    I do not know how to help or not help, but here's the first time I ran into them. I'll call, clearly, the case, disinfection, so that at once, and then I will smear this chalk, I'll cover everything, I'll clean it up. These things got it.

  16. Alex :

    Do not listen to whiners - it helps. You just need to understand that in the prolonged period. Not here to you at once, hop and all have died. Be patient.

  17. Denis :

    I walked a couple of lines behind the fridge and the table, in two weeks, so many corpses of cockroaches. It helps not bad. For the prevention of further packaging.

  18. Nina Lezina :

    About 20 years ago she worked in a kindergarten. We had one boy with lice, parents did not take them out. I smeared him with Masha's hair and tied a kerchief to sleep for an hour. The lice were gone. Masha is power!

  19. Sasha :

    I'll go look for Masha. I hope that helps. After a week, unsubscribe.

  20. Marina :

    Sasha, a week has passed) Helped?

  21. kamola :

    So I smeared today, we'll see what happens.

  22. Simple :

    Maybe I'll also buy Mashenka.

  23. Catherine :

    Someone was eating me today! I know that neighbors have bedbugs, but for 30 years they did not come to visit us ... We must probably get a miracle pencil ... I only have a question for those who used: how about pets? I have cats, I worry about not being poisoned.

  24. Elena :

    Zero effect from the chalk, the whole room is already smeared with them, and bugs do not pay attention to it. Either the producers of chalk made a poor-quality drug, or the bugs already developed immunity to these chalks. Although it seems to me that the first option is more believable.

    • Ilya :

      Do any of the people have immunity to the poison of a tree frog? Correctly: no. The chalk causes paralysis of the nervous tissues, which leads to disruption of the motor system and, subsequently, to its failure. It does not work right away - the effect should wait for a week or two, because the bedbugs are tough. And to smear it is not necessary directly "everywhere" (a skirting board, under a bed, a door frame, around of furniture, a line in 2 sm completely suffices). Imagine that you circle a corpse with shallots, it is much more interesting to go out :) Today I will draw pentagrams :) Here. " Naturally, they will crawl from the poison like cockroaches. By the way, dichlorvos is ineffective and activates a vomitive reflex - carefully!

  25. Elena :

    Here too, to attack, there were never bedbugs, I did not even know how they look. And here on you, bite. I thought that mosquitoes, but winter in the yard. When they caught the first in their clothes, they immediately climbed into the Internet - he turned out to be. Then they found me in a bed in a crib, I got panic. I wanted to call SES, but I can not afford it right now. She climbed into the Internet and read about the machine, bought, smeared. Two days passed: one was found dead. I will continue to wait, but still bite. In a week I'll sign off, helped or not. But I think that will help, because one was found dead.

  26. Alim :

    And where you can buy a crayon Mashenka?

  27. Pablo4es :

    Who to attack with bedbugs, be patient. I bought an apartment in an old house. I drove there already at night, began to wash everything, I found bedbugs. A whole bunch, until 4 am running around with a bag and wetting these critters with my hands. The next morning he woke up - bitten, demons, on the couch and around there were a lot of blood. Well, I killed them too, of course. Immediately went went to buy whiteness, carbofos in powder (40 rubles) and a nebulizer. In general, he removed the plinth, there are huge cracks between the wall and the floor, washed all their kakahs with bleach and filled the entire room with carbophos, two packs of powder were enough. All clothes and belongings were packed in garbage bags. In general, it did not help much, bedbugs became much less, they were generally not visible, but at night they bit. Started to shoot the wallpaper, and there these whole freaks. I bought more carbofos, I took off the wallpaper - I threw it out the window and processed the wall and crevices of carbophos. Later I bought a mashenka (10 rubles), rastered it on a grater and mixed it with water, filled all the cracks. I bought a mounting foam and immediately filled in the apartment absolutely all the cracks that could lead from the neighbors. I bought a raptor from bedbugs (250 rubles) and took off the paneling from the couch, everything worked well (surprisingly, they almost did not have a sofa, but just in case). All the cracks are cemented (250 rubles). Everything is smeared in the mashenka, that it is possible (during all procedures, I slept in the bathroom, while coping myself with cheap cologne (bugs do not tolerate sharp smells) .The main thing is do not be lazy, if everything is done quickly, you can get out and fence off the neighbors of the drunkards I saw a bug in the entrance - I was not too lazy and washed my floor with bleach, I live and am happy for a week, there are no bedbugs, no one bites (bliss wild) :) The apartment was saved, everyone was breathless, although the stench was creepy.
