A field project was launched by bed bug research team from Rutgers University Entomology Dept in a New Jersey housing authority complex during Oct, 2013 to Dec, 2013. 24 apartment units that are heavily infested by bed bugs were treated. The project is to establish an effective application procedure for bed bug remediation.
The video clip demonstrates step-by-step procedure for effectively treating bed bug using EcoRaider.
1. Thorough Inspection
Top bed bug hiding spots to inspect:
Blankets, bed sheets and pillows.
Mattresses: edges, seams and piping.
Bed frames, behind headboards, box springs, dust ruffles, nail or staple holes, etc.
Seams and folds of chairs, sofas and curtains.
Areas where there may be clutter, old boxes, newspapers, etc.
Baseboards, molding, and ceiling molding.
2. Preparation to avoid Re-contamination
Seal infested items in heavy duty plastic bags to avoid re-contamination.
Remove bed linens, pillows and mattress cover and seal in plastic bag and send for laundry or tumble dry at 120°F or higher.
3. Spot & Edge Treatment
Spot-treat pre-determined infestation areas and other possible bed bug harborages. Focus on edges and corners of furniture, appliance and the room itself. Treat thoroughly so that the spray hits the bed bug directly.
