Another downside is that the powder is a visible eye sore, I would recommend vacuuming before you invite people over but that will actually cut down on its effectiveness unless you plan on re applying immediately.
Combining the following will help with controlling these bed bugs
Drying clothes/sheets on very high heat
Using a spray bottle full of 91% Alcohol (NOT the 70% green one which does not kill on contact like the 91%)
BED and BED FRAME COVERS ARE A MUST.
All of this will help, but if you find yourself on the losing end of the battle call an exterminator, it will cost hundreds of dollars but its better than letting these evil monsters take over your life.
Anyway, I spread this powder on my bed frame (I have a slat bed) and all along where the walls meet the floor in my bedroom. The powder works by sticking into gaps in the evil creatures' exoskeletons and causing their vital fluids to evaporate and/or by cutting them apart. Seems this fact is debatable. What is NOT debatable is that within weeks of applying this stuff, all the bed bugs were gone. We had a relatively small infestation that seemed to be localized within the bedroom. It's been nearly six months now, and I have not gotten any bites!
Some tips we found were helpful:
1) Even though you're using this stuff, lift up your mattress regularly (we did it every other day) and catch as many as you can with duct tape. They are pretty dumb and not very fast, so this isn't the most difficult thing if you manage to catch them out in the open. You can also vacuum, just be sure to dispose of the vacuum contents properly. They can't eat through a trash bag so tying them up in one works.
2) Find a picture of what their eggs look like, and try to get rid of as many as possible. I did this when I first discovered the infestation. They are tiny white oval things, and most of the ones we found were stuck in the corner of our bed frame. I just took a skewer and detached them (they stick very strongly!) and then stuck them in folded-over duct tape so that they wouldn't be able to hatch even if they happened to do so in the trash can.
3) We cut milk/juice cartons in half and put each bed leg in one of them. We then dusted the powder into these containers so the bugs would be forced to crawl through the stuff as they made their way from the floor to our bed. Quite a few desiccated bugs wound up in these, so I think it was quite helpful. Even though we haven't found any bugs in here for months, we are keeping our bed in them for a year, as this is how long bed bugs can live without a meal. Probably overkill at this point, but I really don't want them to come back.
4) Wear a dust mask or at least a dampened bandanna around your nose while applying the powder, as the particles are quite tiny and you don't really want to be breathing them in more than necessary.
5) Don't totally isolate your bed... you want them to stay localized and not spread to the rest of your house! The thought of being bug-bait while I slept was horrific, but I'm glad that they never made it beyond the bedroom.
All in all, I am very happy with this product. I wanted to try using some nontoxic methods for eliminating them before involving the landlord, calling an exterminator, and spewing pesticides everywhere, and I'm glad I did. You CAN get rid of them!
