Bed Bug Patrol Bed Bug Killer - One of the best bed bug sprays that I've yet to personally use. Not only does it have a reported 100% kill rate against live bed bugs in controlled tests, but it's also child and pet friendly.
You can utilize boric acid in the form of borax to remove bed bugs from blankets, sheets, and any other bedding. Simply wash the items with a mixture of borax and hot water. Together with a steam cleaner. You can deal with the bed bugs that have infested your furniture efficiently using boric acid and a steam cleaner.
No, borax will not kill bed bug eggs. The reason for this is that bed bug eggs can't eat borax or even inhale it. Hence, as much as you try to get rid of them using borax, they will remain at the edges of your furniture.
All clothes should be put in a hot dryer for a minimum of 20 minutes on the hottest setting to kill any bugs residing on them. It is best to do this in a home dryer rather than taking to a dry cleaner and risk passing these pests along to other people's clothes.
Why Borax? Better use Diatomaceous Earth. As a bug killer acts like tiny razor blades that cut open the bed bug and causes their eventual death by dehydration. It is useful for eliminating bed bugs in all stages: adults, nymphs, and hatching.
Let's take a look at how borax supposedly works to kill bed bugs. It's not the same as with ants. The bed bugs don't need to ingest boric acid in order for it to kill them. In fact, it would be impossible to get them to eat boric acid because bed bugs don't eat anything except blood. That is their only source of nourishment.
