Bed Bugs Facts

When bed bugs invade your home, unfortunately, just killing some of them will never be enough to deal with the entire problem. Even if you kill all that you can see, the majority of bed bugs are already well hidden in cracks and crevices, behind wall boards, or exist in the form of newly laid eggs that will hatch in 10-14 days and become a new bed bug problem all over again. To truly eliminate the infestation, you must be able to kill all of them, and guarantee that you can also deal with the new ones that will begin to hatch from the eggs.

How can bed bugs be eliminated?

There is nothing that can be sprayed (safe or poisonous) that will be certain to get into all the cracks and crevices in which bed bugs hide. There is also no spray, safe or poisonous, that will kill bed bug eggs. The only way to eliminate the infestation is to spray an affected area and then let the bed bugs come to the treated area with the knowledge that when they do, the residual effects of the spray will continue to kill them; including the newly hatched eggs that may not see the hatchlings arrival for a few weeks after you initially spray. Bed bug infestations of 90 day duration, or longer, may require more than one application. The females have laid thousands of eggs during that period of time and hidden them in places that are almost impossible to find. Those unhatched eggs produce additional females which then lay even more eggs. An infestation that has gone on this long may take a few treatments over a month or two to completely eliminate. It is also very important to make certain that you purchase enough Lights Out to effectively treat your infestation.  One quart will treat 300 sq. ft. (a 15' x 20' room) and typically bed bugs will be found in multiple rooms in a home.  If the infestation has been going on for 90 days or longer you will need to make a few apllications over a 30-60 day period.

How do bed bugs know where to go? 

Bed bugs come to the treated area because they seek out the carbon dioxide we exhale. At the end of that carbon dioxide is their food source, namely us.

What makes Lights Out different?

Lights Out is the only safe and natural bed bug killing spray that has the independent laboratory test results showing that it not only kills the bed bugs, but continues to kill them for thirty days after you have sprayed, with its critical residual component. Other competitors claim that they offer a safe product that kills bed bugs. We have even seen a university study that supports the claim that a few of these so-called "safe" bed bug killing products actually do kill bed bugs. That same study calls them "...worthless in the real world for actually eliminating bed bug infestations." 2 

Why is a product that kills bed bugs "worthless" for eliminating bed bug infestations?

Because these very same products take up to 10 days to achieve bed bug mortality3 (and that is only for those bed bugs you can see; most are hidden); this also means that the females, that do not die right away, will continue to lay their eggs and hide them away (they do a very good job of hiding these eggs), where nothing can reach them. These same products also have no residual components that continue to kill, even after the new eggs hatch; meaning the new hatchlings continue to replenish the original infestation. Lights Out was developed to kill the bed bugs you can see and their mortality is measured in minutes4, from the time they are sprayed (not 10 days). Lights Out also kills all the bed bugs that are hidden away in cracks and crevices and behind walls, as those bed bugs will eventually come out of hiding and crawl through the treated area covering themselves with the residual component and at that point their mortality is measured in minutes. Finally Lights Out will also deal with the hatchlings that have emerged from their eggs, as long as two weeks after the original infestation, as they will also come to the treated area and expose themselves to the residual component and begin to die almost immediately. Lights Out offers a thirty day residual effect5 and this assures it treats and eliminates the entire infestation. No other safe and natural bed bug spray, on the market, can offer what Lights Out can do, despite the claims many competitors make. We at Lights Out like to say, to our competitors making their claims:

Show us the testing!

By that we mean true independent laboratory testing performed by a respected testing laboratory or university, that prove their product is effective in killing bed bugs and most importantly in controlling bed bug infestations.

Proven Results, Proudly Shown

We are proud to post our test results, right on this website, performed by the esteemed American Academy of Entomological Science. These test results prove Lights Out both kills bed bugs and eliminates bed bug infestations6, for without accomplishing both of these functions any product will not achieve your desired result of eliminating the bed bug infestation, no matter what it claims. In summary if you wish to eliminate a bed bug infestation, in your home or business, treat the affected area yourself with a safe and non-toxic spray and rest easy in your own bed that night knowing that your have effectively treated the entire bed bug infestation, then Lights Out is the only product on the market that can make that claim. Lights Out is manufactured, with a highly secret process, that supercharges safe and natural soy and creates a devastating killing agent for bed bugs and a wide variety of other insects. This unique manufacturing process was developed by a team of scientists and the finished formula is only achieved after multiple and exact steps, each one having to be performed under strictly controlled laboratory conditions. Any deviation from the necessary sequence of steps, or precise laboratory conditions, will render the finished product as useless for killing bed bugs.

Lights Out will perform exactly as we claim - to kill bed bugs and eliminate bed bug infestations. If you are currently affected by this problem Lights Out will solve it.
