FAQ

  1. Is Lights Out and Dr Greengood a safe product to use for killing bed bugs? Our product ingredients have been independently tested by the American Academy of Entomological Sciences and they have certified that these ingredients are non-toxic according to EPA “Generally Regarded As Safe (GRAS)” standards and furthermore qualify for the EPA 25(b) rule exemption. Lights Out and Dr Greengood are 100% non-toxic to humans and mammals.

  2. How long does the Lights Out or Dr Greengood treatment take before it begins to be effective? Bed bugs that are visible will begin to die within 5 minutes of beginning the spray application. Those bed bugs that are hidden and not visible will continue to die for a period of thirty days after application, once they leave their hiding places and crawl through the residual compounds that are adhering to sprayed surfaces. “Directions For Use” instructions on the product label should be followed as indicated.

  3. What are the directions for use of Lights Out and Dr Greengood? First all debris should be removed from floors, closets, drawers, cabinets, and other enclosed surfaces and disposed of in tightly sealed plastic bags. Carpets should be vacuumed and vacuum bag should be disposed of in a tightly sealed plastic bag. Furnishings should be moved away from the wall to allow access. Drawers should be removed and placed on end so inside and underside are exposed. Cushions and pillows should be removed from chairs, couches, and beds. Drapes should be closed so the surfaces can be sprayed. Remove headboards, headboard supports, pictures, wall hangings, and any other fixtures so Lights out can be applied to all surfaces. All bedding and pillow cases should be removed and placed in plastic bags and laundered. The box spring should be removed from the mattress so the entire bed frame, railings, wheel and support assemblies are exposed. Remove cloth from bottom of box spring and spray inside box spring; dispose of cloth, in tightly sealed bag, as it may contain eggs. Shake bottle vigorously and spray as a mist and apply to all surfaces including carpeting, cushions, drapes, drawer surfaces, furniture joints, mattress, box spring, baseboards, and all other surfaces in the room. On hard floored surfaces spray cracks and crevices with a stream not a mist. Lightly spray bedspread or comforter. Spray all surfaces so they are just damp not saturated. Once all surfaces have dried all furnishings can be replaced to proper location and room reoccupied.
