Kentucky environmental attorney Sanders says US EPA creates a database of pesticides for killing bed bugs.

With cases of bed bug infestations increasing, many people are turning to pesticides as a means of ridding their homes of the pest. To help people find an appropriate pesticide for use on bed bugs, the U.S. EPA has created a new database listing all pesticides registered for this purpose. The new search tool will let consumers choose an EPA-registered bed bug product that meets their needs and is safe if properly used according to label instructions.

Pesticides are one of many tools that can be used in combating bed bug infestations. When used in a comprehensive approach that combines vigilance in monitoring, integrated pest management techniques, and other non-chemical control methods, registered pesticide products can help control a bed bug infestation.

There are more than 300 different products registered by EPA for use against bed bugs. When selecting a bed bug pesticide product, it is important to choose one that is appropriate for the situation, such as where the pesticide will be applied, and always follow the instructions on the pesticide’s label. This new product search will allow the consumer to find bed bug products by company, name, EPA registration number, active ingredient, and place of application.
