The company "Raptor" - one of the pioneers of the production of funds from flying and creeping insects. For many people, the company's products are familiar for mosquito repellent products, as well as home cockroaches. They showed a good result, so still enjoy excellent fame. A convenient aerosol release form does not require special preparation for the beginning of the destruction of parasites.
When bed bugs suddenly appear in the house, people prefer to act in the old fashioned way and buy something that they know well. However, it should be noted that there is no specialized means of "Raptor from bedbugs". The company offers only a spray, the action of which is directed against creeping insects in general.
"When they found out that bugs had appeared in the dacha, they immediately rushed to the shed to look for some remedy. A year ago they bought a spray from cockroaches "Raptor", there still half a bottle left. Sprayed through all the cracks, behind the back of the bed ... wherever there were bugs. The result - almost zero, well, except that a couple of dozen insects died out. Still wake up bitten. Very surprised, because of the cockroaches helped perfectly, forgot about them completely. How can this be possible? "
Composition and principle of action of the spray Raptor
Aerosol Raptor from bedbugs, cockroaches and other creeping insects consists of three active ingredients, in addition to which added a solvent and flavor.
The active substances of the agent are:
- Cypermethrin, 0.2%. This insecticide paralyzes the nervous system of both adults and larvae. The most active action is on the first day of application, but it retains its properties for up to 20 days, already being applied to the surface. Quite resistant to direct sunlight.
- Tetramethrin, 0.2%. Nerve-paralyzing poison for creeping insects. Has a low toxicity for humans and warm-blooded animals.
- Piperonyl butoxide, 0.5%. The most effective works in conjunction with tetrametron. Maloyadovit, however, complements the action of other insecticides, strengthening it.
The raptor acts on bugs and other insects in the following way: when the insect crosses the surface on which the agent was sprayed, the poison remains on the paws of the parasite and begins to act. When the insect is in contact with another individual, the poison is transmitted.
Usually a bed bug dies within a day from the moment of the onset of poisoning on it. The sprayed poison lasts about 20 days, but its efficiency decreases every day.
As practice shows, Raptor spray is really quite effective against creeping insects. However, he shows the best results in the fight against cockroaches and ants, and the worst - against bugs. Why is this happening?
The fact is that bedbugs are quite tenacious insects, which are not so easy to exterminate. It should also be noted that the concentration of the active substance in the spray is lower than in the insecticides of the liquid form. In addition, finely sprayed with a spray means is worse fixed on the surface and has an even weaker effect.
In other words, if it happened to splash the substance on the bug itself or their masonry, then the individuals will die. However, it is ineffective to process possible places for their visits.
Experts argue that for the destruction of bedbugs (in contrast to cockroaches, ants), it is almost always not enough of the concentration of poison that will fall on its legs as a result of moving around the apartment.
Raptor from bedbugs: instructions for use
A cylinder with insecticides is under pressure, so it can not be stored directly under direct sunlight or near sources of fire. Before use, the aerosol is shaken - this is necessary to ensure that all components inside the canister are mixed and the liquid becomes homogeneous.
Treatment should be carried out with open windows or windows, remove animals and birds from the room, close the aquariums tightly. It is advisable to work in personal protective equipment, which will help not to breathe in poison particles. Optimum fit is a medical mask or industrial respirator.
If processing is done in the kitchen, you should not allow open food here.
Spray the poison from a distance of about 20 cm, holding the balloon on his outstretched hand. If you know exactly where the bugs live , you should spray the Raptor into the places where the insects are gathered. You will also need to treat the facility with all secluded places, such as the backs of beds and sofas, the space behind the skirting boards, the walls of bookcases and other furniture.
Do not use aerosol near electrical appliances, gas stove.
Spray should be so that a straight continuous line is obtained. In this case, bedbugs can not avoid crossing it. After the procedure, leave the window open for at least 30 minutes and leave the room.
We with the husband and the child live in the old apartment, where a lot of furniture and books. There were never problems with bedbugs, and then new neighbors from below brought this evil spirits. Has decided to process an apartment while the family is at the dacha. She pushed all the furniture away, sprinkled everywhere. Used to spray Raptor from bedbugs, cockroaches and ants. The stench was creepy, but it quickly disappeared. True, I had time to breathe a little, the next morning my head ached wildly. I expected a couple of days to sweep the dead bugs, but no. A few found, and the rest as before vylazyat at night and bite. The most interesting thing is that everything was done according to instructions ...
In humans, especially in children, allergic reactions to a spray are possible. Since a large amount of material enters the air during application, the probability of its entry into the respiratory tract is high. Exercise extreme caution and try not to inhale the contents of the aerosol.
Buy Raptor from bedbugs, cockroaches and ants can be in many hardware stores, markets and the Internet. The price of the bottle is 150 rubles, and one is enough to handle a large room with furniture.
Raptor Spray Reviews
"To take or not take a spray Raptor from bedbugs - to decide, of course, to you. I can only say about my problem that he did not solve it absolutely. The apartment bred bugs, somehow imperceptibly.
Found first a couple of pieces, and then - bang, and the whole herd runs. Nervated terribly, the whole family stopped sleeping. On the Internet, it was deducted that Raptor spray should help from all insects. But the only place where the result was evident is the nest of bedbugs, their settlement. That's when you sprinkle on live, it dies immediately. But then they again multiply and become worse than before.
So I would recommend using only if you know exactly where the bedbugs are. As an addition. And besides this, take more money than you can. "
Victor Petrovich, Omsk
"In my room the landlady settled a new girl-student, and she brought with her bedbugs from the old dwelling. There they were full, because by the way, she had to leave. We went through all the Internet with the Internet, we were all looking for how to quickly destroy the parasites. Comments like a pile, but everything is different.
Remember that even in childhood, when cockroaches were at home, the parents of Raptor bought a pshikalku. He helped a lot. We also bought this spray, sprinkled from the bedbugs behind the wallpaper and bed. The first night we slept peacefully. Then, however, a couple more parasites were seen, but the spray helped out. They say that if there are many bedbugs, then it does not work very well. But we have extinguished our own and dozens of them. "
There are many industrial products that were created specifically for the destruction of bed bugs. Spray Raptor among them is far from the best option (the same is said about the numerous reviews of people on the Internet). The concentration of active substances in it is rather low. In addition, when spraying Raptor with aerosol, the poison enters the air and can easily penetrate the respiratory tract.
Of course, the spray can be used in a complex fight with bedbugs. It is effective when sprayed directly onto insects or their nests. Therefore, if the bedbugs are very little and it is known exactly where their shelter is located, the Raptor can help. However, if the room is seriously contaminated, you need to be prepared to use stronger means.
On a note
Specialists-disinsectors advise to choose those means of struggle, which are developed specially for a particular insect, taking into account the peculiarities of its physiology and lifestyle. These drugs work reliably, save time and eliminate the need for repeated etching. In the fight against bugs, such drugs as the Executioner, Klopomor, Combat, Carbophos, Tetriks, Fufanon are the most successful ones. These agents have a sufficiently high concentration of active substances and are most effective.
