Best Yet Bed Bug Spray Review
Bed Bug Spray Review
Best Yet Bed Bug Spray; Is It Really The Best Yet?
Best Yet Bed Bug Spray is an all natural and 100% safe spray. It is safe for use around children and pets.
It is safe for use in kitchens, on mattresses and furniture. The main ingredient is ceader oil.
In nature ceders tend to survive because they have their own natural pesticide as a part of their DNA.
It is a product praised in the US, but in many European countries it is surrounded by controversy. Even though many do not approve of the use of ceadar in pest control, it is still widely used across Europe, and now in the US.
The poll I am running on this article indicates that Best Yet works about half of the time.
It is a gamble, but if you do more than spray it is more likely to work.
Spray is only part of the plan that you need to follow.
- Extermination Checklist
- Sealing Cracks and Baseboards
- Chemical Free Bed Bug Plan
- Bed Bug Anxiety and Stress
- How to Use a Steamer to Kill Bed Bugs
As with any pest removal, it is up to you to do a full comparison.
I also suggest you compare doing it yourself and calling a professional. Do as much research as possible before making your choice. Education is the best route to a solution.
Best Yet Bed Bug Spray Pros
Best Yet Bed Bug Spray has a lot of pros, but it is not marketed for these creepers.
It is a natural insecticide, which also works on the following:
- Bed Bugs
- And more
This product is made from cedear oil.. This makes it safe enough to use anywhere and everywhere in your home.
Some people spray pesticides which contain Beneferin and other chemicals on furniture and bedding, even after instructed not to do so.
These chemicals cause illness when absorbed through the skin, but not Best Yet.
The smell of this spray is not overwhelming. When working with the community outreach group, we used this in a select number of homes.
We gave people a choice, and some chose the natural route. Personally, I thought the smell was strong at first. Once it started to fade, it almost smelled like a strong air freshener.
Even though the poll I am running shows that people report that this insecticide only works about half the time.
When we used it, it did work. However, keep in mind we oversaw the drying of all bedding, clothing and stuffed animals, we used caulk to seal cracks and the basboards and we supplied pillow and mattress covers.
We also came back every two weeks for a re-spray. If you go the natural route, you have to be three times as vigilent with your efforts.
There are many people who feel that the safty of their family is worth the extra effort. It is this safe because its ingredients are simply red cedar oil and melted quartz rock.
Cedar oil belongs to the Cupressaceae family, cedar oil is naturally offensive to most insects.
Cedar oil alone kills over time. This product goes above and beyond that because it contains melted quartz.
Cedar oil breaks down the nervous system of most crawling insects, and even kills lice and other bugs in the same manner.
It is the melted quartz that acts sort of like diatomaceous earth, cutting the bugs exoskeleton, causing deadly loss of fluids.
I did find this spray to be safe. The EPA classifies it as “Minimum Risk”, and I would agree with that. If you have read my other reviews, you know I usually address how it affected the asthmatics in family. I have my own asthmatic in the family, so I was extra viggilent in adressing that angle.
The spray was a little strong, and both a child with asthma and an adult with COPD felt a little chest tightening at first, but there were no asthma attacks of further problems.
We opened some windows, and about an hour later both could enter the rooms with no further symptoms.
The product did not seem to have any effect on cats and dogs. One home had pet rats, they must have been able to smell the cedar oil because they became quite aggitated and hyperactive, but were fine after that.
Being naturally curious, I wanted to know if this companies claims about killing eggs were true. I isolated a piece of a bed frame in one of the infested homes. I sprayed the eggs as directed and monitored it for a month.
I know a month is overkill, but I just wanted to make sure. I was skeptical, but the eggs were apparently doomed. I only did this one test, so I can’t rule out other factors for sure, but it killed the eggs.
Best Yet Bed Bug Spray Cons
Being a positive person, I do not like the part where I have to give out negative reviews. However, a true decision can not be made without knowing the good and the bad.
After resting this product, experimenting with it and learning about the positive, I do have a few reservations.
Let us go back to the fact that my poll shows that users report that this spray only works half the time.
To me that means that most people are not using it as a part of a full bed bug eradication plan. This is why most people would rather choose a professional.
The company does not provide specific eradication information with the product. This means customers have to learn how to do it for themselves, which is confusing.
I feel the company could, at least, do what Hot Shot does and make a You Tube video teaching people how to use the product.
I do not want to promote products that could increase suffering by dashing hopes, wasting time and draining a person’s bank account.
If someone does not know how to use the product, of course it will not work as well.
I am not saying that this is a terrible product. I think it works on many insects, including bed bugs. Just remember, it is not the end all solution. You must use a complete plan to get rid of those blood suckers.
It is never a bad idea to seek professional advice before you use any product in your home (for safety reasons). Never use multiple sprays without discovering if the two bed bugs sprays are compatible.
Something else I need to point out is that insects avoid chemical sprays. They avoided Best Yet, but not at the same rate as chemicals. While it does kill eggs, I do not believe that it has a long residual effect. It maybe lasts a couple of weeks.
My Best Yet Bed Bug Spray Thoughts
Overall, I would call this an average bed bug spray. It does kill eggs, and it does deter bed bugs, just like it claims. It is safe, too.
The claims are true; however, this is one of those sprays that might just cause bed bugs to scatter to harder to reach places.
If someone else has had a different experience with Best Yet bed bug spray, please let us know in the comments section below. Sharing your experience with others is the best way to help play an active role in the war against bed bugs.
However, if you are gung ho on natural products and are worried about the lung health of people at your residence, this could be the product for you.
