Contained synergist makes our insecticides stronger without a need for increased dosage beyond recommendations. It also helps beat insecticide tolerance in tough bed bug populations.
- To prevent bedbug nymphs from hatching out of bed bug eggs and to stop bed bug nymphs from reaching sexual maturity (would be) required for bedbugs to multiply, we administer Insect growth regulator (IGR) alongside our bed-bug treatments.
Non-toxic desiccant (Diatomaceous Earth) effectively supports our bed bug treatments and the dust (powder) helps to protect against bedbugs long term.
ULV fogging (ultra-low volume spraying) of insecticide to flush out hiding bedbugs out of their harbourages.
