Getting Rid of Bed Bugs with Sterifab

A Bit About Bed Bugs

Bed Bugs are parasitic insects that feed exclusively on blood. And while they can’t fly, they can nevertheless move quickly over floors, walls and ceilings. As a rule, they prefer warm places  ̶  houses, offices, hotel room, day care centers, hospitals, virtually anywhere humans dwell  ̶  but they are especially drawn to beds, bedding and other sleep areas. Although they are usually active at night, bed bugs are not entirely nocturnal.

There's no easy bed bug treatment. Bed bugs are resilient insects and they can go several months without feeding. If you have the slightest suspicion that you have a bed bug infestation, don’t hesitate.
Sterifab is fast drying, non-residual and EPA-approved to kill bed bugs at all life stages.

Bed Bugs: What to Look For

Bed bugs are small, oval and brownish in color and adult bed bugs have flat bodies about the size of an apple seed. After feeding, their bodies swell and turn a reddish color. They usually enter a home undetected, carried in with luggage, clothing, used beds and couches and other innocuous items.


Unfortunately, their flat bodies make it easy for them to fit into very small tiny spaces. Bed bugs can quickly and easily spread from bedrooms to other rooms or apartments, preferring to live in crevices or other protected locations.


Unlike ants or bees, bed bugs don’t make nests, but they do have a tendency to live in groups. Their primary hiding places are mattresses, box springs, bed frames and headboards, where they have easy access to their main source of blood  ̶  people. That's also why it's so hard to know what gets rid of bed bugs.

Why Use Sterifab?

In two words: Versatility and reliability. But there are other words we could also use, such as ease-of-use, potency, crystal clear and odorless, among others. 

Sterifab is the only EPA-registered product that is approved for killing all stages of bed bugs. Plus, it is also a virucide, a disinfectant and an insecticide. With just a few sprays, it will do more than just kill bed bugs. The tried and tested formula kills a wide range of pests ̶ including lice, ticks, dust mites and scabies. Plus, it also gets rid of mold and mildew. 

Better still, Sterifab is non-residual. 15 minutes after spraying, you can go right back into the room, where it leaves no odor and no trace.

First introduced in 1967, Sterifab has gone on to become one of the best-known and effective insecticides/disinfectants on the market. 

Don Haynes, a commentator with MSNBC, called Sterifab, “a super mixture of virucide, bactericide, fungicide, insecticide, germicide, and 5 or 6 other ingredients."

Use Sterifab to Prevent Future Bed Bug Infestations

Remember, bed bugs can hide virtually anywhere. Their small size makes it easy for them to squeeze into really small hiding places. Bed bugs can be found in the seams of chairs and couches, between cushions and in the folds of curtains; in household appliances, kitchen utensils, bookcases, even pictures and wall hangings. They’ve even been found in electrical sockets and laptop computers.


Fortunately, Sterifab can be used effectively on everything except people, animals, cooking utensils, waxed or oiled surfaces such as finished leather and wood, etc.


And it’s a multipurpose product! In addition to getting rid of bed bugs, ticks, fleas and other insects, Sterifab:
