1.You should be concentrating on joining rooms homes, apartments or condos(left, right, upstairs & downstairs if applicable)
4.Take off plug and light switch covers in wall.
5.Take out all clothing in drawers and place in plastic bags (seal) and set outside.
6.Set empty drawers up against wall

14. When finished with #13 re-place all plugs & light switch covers in wall.
15.If possible place new child proof covers over plugs not being used by appliances. (plastic child proof plug connectors)
By sealing up the areas described above you will help in the prevention
of any additional bugs to pass through these areas when you start on
the main room.
You are now prepared to start in the infested room, apartment or condo.
Start by spraying with a hand held or back-pack spray apparatus
1.Spray Dr. Ben's Evictor along baseboards in all rooms (Make sure to get between wall and baseboard if possible)
2.Spray under any loose carpeting
3.Visually look and inspect the upper corners of walls and behind any lose wall paper for signs of eggs or bed bugs.
4.Spray inside cavities of dresser (corners especially)
5.Spray dresser drawers inside, underneath and sides
6.After inspecting pictures and frames,if any sign of eggs or bed bugs are present then spray
down mattresses especially in the fold or crease of the mattress (The
Dr. Ben's does not stain and will migrate itself to atmosphere in a very
short period of time)
8.Spray inside of Box spring making sure all wood framing especially corners are wet.
9.Spray down entire bed frame metal or wood looking for cracks or hollow holes
10.Spray down head board concentrating on the cracks around the framing.
11.Spray underneath cabinets in bathroom making sure to include upper part
12.Spray all living room furniture including under cushions, sides and bottom of couch and chairs and other furniture in room.
13.We know in some cases bed bugs will even migrate inside of door key holes you will want to spray in key holes of all doors.
Prepare the room prior to fogging.
1.Turn off all fire alarms
2.Turn off all pilot lights/furnaces Do Not Spray or fog into flames
3.Close all windows
4.Turn off AC
5.Remove all pets (ALL)
6.Place a towel on the floor at the bottom of the front door, so the mist does not leach into the halls.
7.Put on protective mask and goggles
Once this is accomplished you can now start fogging…
in the farthest room from the front entrance of the room, Apartment,
Condo, House or if attic is available (if applicable)
1.As you just used the hand held sprayer you will now repeat steps 1-13 above, except you will use the fogger.You
will fog at a distance of approximately 20 inches from everything that
you just sprayed; this will ensure good penetration of the Solution deep
inside the cracks and crevices.
You will now move to the farthest part of the room from the door which you will exit.You will fog the entire carpet or other type of flooring side to side walking slowly backwards until you reach the exit door.
2.Prior to leaving, point the fogger straight in the room, turn on high and fog until there is a dense fog in the air.When
it is hard to see through the fog, pick up your towel at the bottom of
the doorway, open the door and close as quickly as possible then put the
towel along the outside of the door so that the solution doesn’t leech
out to the hall.
Start on next room (if applicable) and repeat the same protocol as the first room. Once
in the living room area you will want to do the same thing again to the
couch, chairs and other furniture including all flooring.
you begin to exit the room, apartment or condo make sure and hold the
UV Fogger straight into the room at the exit and continue spraying fog
until it is hard to see inside structure.
You will leave the room closed up for a minimum of 3 hours preferably 24 hours prior to re-entering.
re-entry, open up all windows and turn on fans (do not turn on AC at
this time) so that the air will circulate and go out windows and doors.
up room thoroughly (
DO NOT VACUUM, allow all furniture and carpeting to
dry naturally) this gives the product enough time to dehydrate any
Then inspect for any movement of live insects.Although
there should not be any bed bugs alive at this time, there is always a
chance that some simply did not die, repeat fogging instructions only,
