Temprid Ready Spray stands out as a premium bed bug spray because of it’s dual action features. Aside from killing bed bugs, the product boasts that it can kill over 50 types of pests. Temprid’s main active ingredients are beta-cyfluthrin and imidacloprid which are two powerful bed bug killing insecticides. Beta-cyfluthrin can kill regular species while imidacloprid is able to eliminate species which are resistant to pyrethroids.

According to the manufacturer label, Temprid is not recommended to be sprayed directly on surfaces where people are constantly in contact (cushioned furniture, mattresses). We suggest applying the spray on joints, seams and edges of the mattresses, as well as box springs, bed backs, any furniture and floor cracks, corners, skirting boards, carpets, shelves, cabinets and curtains.

From our honest opinion, we recommend only using Temprid if you have a smaller bed bug invasion.  Based on customers’ reviews, it takes around 2-3 applications in order to completely eliminate a bed bug infestation.

Important Considerations Before Applying Bed Bug Sprays

1. Bed Bug Sprays Work Similarly: The bed bug sprays we carry in stock all function in generally the same way. The manufacturers of the sprays all boast that the products will kill bed bugs on contact immediately and that the chemicals will continue to kill any unfortunate bed bug for a few hours after application. However, no matter the type of spray we recommend applying and treating your bed or infested pieces of furniture more than once to ensure total control.

2. Identify the areas of high activity in the room to be sprayed. Typically with bed bugs, these areas are usually:

  • Pieces of luggage that were recently used for travel. Chances are you’ve brought bed bugs home when you went on vacation. So piece of luggage should be inspected carefully and treated and all items inside the luggage should also be treated (clothes washed and dried, quarantined etc.)

  • Baseboards and floorboards should also be checks as well as carpets, cracks in the wooden floor, corners, door and window frames, behind art paintings or wallpaper, outlets.

  • Furniture and your sleeping areas, the drawers in the chest or cabinets, sofa and armchair upholstery, mattresses, pillows, bed sheets etc.


3. Never Rely On Just One Method of control. Often times, our customers come back to us disappointed after buying a spray and tell us that it didn’t get the job done. When we ask them if they’ve done anything else besides spraying (dusting, sanitation, applied bed bug covers) they usually answer in the negative. We highly advise you to use sprays as one of several methods that should be combined when carrying out a bed bug control program. A well thought-out and thorough bed bug treatment of your home includes: removing and cleaning infested furniture, using non-pesticide means of control like steam cleaning and or heat based killing as well as utilizing bed bed covers for your bedding and furniture.
