The Environment Protection Agency (EPA) offers a comprehensive search tool for people looking to find bed bug products that can work in their home. The search allows consumers to search by the name of the product manufacturer, EPA-registration number, pesticide type, or use of pesticide. Using this search is a great way to ensure that you are using a product that is approved to use against bed bugs.
Residents who use the services of professional exterminators should always ask for the product information before they are allowed to spray in their home. Once you find out the chemical name or manufacturer name you can input it into the EPA search system and see if the product is a registered product. This is to prevent companies from using potentially toxic or ineffective chemicals to fight against bed bugs.
