CimeXa Insecticide dust is labeled for control of bedbugs, fleas, ticks, lice, roaches, ants, firebrats, silverfish, spiders and mites. It may also be used for the prevention and treatment of drywood termites. The broad label allows the product to be used to treat cracks, crevices, voids, mattresses, carpets, pet rest areas, attics and many other areas. The engineered silica-based dust has exceptional absorption of water(in liquid form) and oil, destroying the insect's waxy cuticle, causing rapid dehydration and death. The standard usage rate is 2oz per 100 square feet.
Top Customer Reviews
I bought this dust as a result of reading American pest control specialists' reviews (and seeing reviews on YouTube) which spoke of the efficacy of the dust. They all rate it very highly as the most effective insecticide for bedbugs.
Apparently the dust is non-toxic to humans, and fatal to arthropods (insects with a segmented body and exoskeleton). It is best applied only sparingly (can even be "painted on" to surfaces in a fine film, using a paintbrush) as the fine particles of silicon attach to passing insects by electrostatic charge/attraction. Once attached, the silicone dust damages the cuticle (the outer covering of the bug's exoskeleton), whereupon Fick's laws of diffusion come into play, effectively evaporating the water in the insect's body fluid, which process is accelerated by virtue of the dust being a desiccant. Bugs die (dried out) in 2 to 3 days.
CimeXa dust has been found to have a much better killing consistency than, and is over three times faster by comparison with DE (Diatomaceous Earth) dust, and is estimated to remain effective for up to 10 years if left undisturbed.
Because the best method of application is to apply CimeXa sparingly to where bedbugs are likely to go walking, a 4 ounce container is probably going to be more than enough to dust the relevant/necessary parts of a whole house.
Alcohol mixed with water and other products might kill them on contact, but it's impossible to find every single one because they hide everywhere and they move very fast. Nothing we did worked. We kept seeing them and kept getting bit.
Then, I heard about Cimexa from the Poor Man's Advocate on You Tube and so far we ARE very pleased and grateful to have learned about it. As soon as we received Cimexa, we started powdering with the puffer all throughout our house and furniture and started seeing less and less bed bugs. It's important to purchase the puffer with Cimexa to be able to cover a lot of space and more evenly. This is another small purchase you won't regret.
We also put powder in containers that we saved from cottage cheese and put each bed leg in a container with powder because bed bugs don't jump, they crawl. The only way to get to a mattress is to crawl up a bed leg. We did this to the couch too. We started noticing them less and less. There was even a time we didn't notice any for a couple months.
Then, when the people who lived upstairs moved out, we started seeing them again. We powdered again and went upstairs and powdered the empty apartment and left it there for as long as we could. Ever since we powdered the upstairs, we haven't seen one bed bug or any other bug for that matter. Yayyyyyyyy Oh my goodness, I cannot tell you how thankful we are about this. What a relief! If Cimexa is left undisturbed, not swept away or get wet, (it cannot get wet or it won't work) it can last for up to 10 years. So, it's important to powder all areas that you can, then don't bother it.
I really feel if you can't afford an exterminator, Cimexa is the BEST thing that can be used and my family would agree. They HATE these bugs as much as I do and the price for each bottle is reasonable, very affordable. I feel like putting poster board up all over the city to advertise Cimexa, so people don't have to drive themselves crazy or waste a lot of money trying to get rid of bed bugs.
To see for myself how the dust worked in a controlled setting, I sprinkled about 1/8 teaspoon of the dust in a very small Tupperware container. Every time I caught a bug, I would place it in the container and shake it around lightly to get the dust on the bug. if it didn't die within a few hours, it would be dead by the morning - although the label on the dust says it takes 24-48 hours for them to die.
Please note that this is not a standalone treatment method - it has to be used in conjunction with other things, such as pulling your bed away from the wall, mattress encasements, and constant washing of your clothing and bedding.
