Frequently Asked Questions

Q

What is Proof® Bed Bug & Dust Mite Killer?

A

Proof® Bed Bug & Dust Mite Killer is 100% effective against bed bugs and bed bug eggs*. It uses patented technology to kill on contact and evaporates to penetrate hard-to-reach areas where bed bugs hide. Use it on mattresses, sofas, cracks and crevices to control infestations. The spray is registered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA Reg. No. 88760-6) for killing and controlling bed bug infestations in homes, making it the smart way to protect the family from bed bugs.

The product also kills dust mites and their eggs. For ongoing control, simply apply the product every two weeks, along with a regular cleaning regimen, to help manage dust mite infestations.

Q

Is Proof® Bed Bug & Dust Mite Killer’s scent safe?

A

The spray is designed to penetrate hard-to-reach areas to kill hidden bed bugs. Unlike conventional contact sprays, Proof® uses patented technology that enables it to evaporate and reach the areas that other sprays will not. Using this product means that areas such as behind baseboards and moldings, in wall cracks and crevices, and in between mattress piping and stitching will receive coverage because of this innovation. Due to the nature of this technology, the product may emit a strong scent that some might find irritating. However, the scent is not a health hazard and is normal.

Q

How long does the Proof® Bed Bug & Dust Mite Killer scent last?

A

Typically, the scent will last anywhere from a few days to several weeks, depending on the material’s level of absorption of the product and the amount applied. To help accelerate the scent’s dissipation, increase ventilation in the area by turning on fans and opening windows. This will hasten evaporation of the product. Note that fabrics, cloth, and carpet will absorb more product and hold the scent longer, so these items may be washed. Other hard surfaces may be wiped down to remove the product.

Please ensure that the product has been allowed to work sufficiently by leaving it undisturbed for at least four hours. For heavier infestations, reapply the product as needed.

An air freshener product may be used to help with the smell.

Q

Is Proof® Bed Bug & Dust Mite Killer safe in my home?

A

The plant-based spray has been formulated to kill through a non-toxic mode of action, making it less toxic than conventional chemical synthetic pesticides and insecticides. What this means is areas frequently exposed to people, such as mattresses and sofas, can be treated with confidence. Many other spray products use harmful neurotoxins that prevent them from being used in areas of possible skin exposure. Read the directions on the label for full details.

Q

Is Proof® Bed Bug & Dust Mite Killer safe for my furniture and fabrics?

A

As with any spray product, always use a small amount first and test an inconspicuous spot to check for discoloration, colorfastness, and other damage prior to use. The spray is water-based, so items prone to water damage should not be sprayed, such as cardboard and books. Refer to the bottle label for full details.

Q

How much should I spray?

A

The application amount is highly dependent on the type of material and area being sprayed. For a typical queen size mattress, for example, one 16 fl. oz. bottle should be sufficient. In this case, application should focus on the piping and stitching to ensure hidden bed bugs are killed.

For other areas that include desks, flooring, and other hard surfaces, one 16 fl. oz. bottle should be sufficient for an area of about 96 square feet, or one bedroom.

As fabrics, cloth, and carpeting will absorb more of the product, the scent may be more intense for these items. For less absorbent items, the scent will be less strong. Please note that the scent is not an inhalation hazard.

The application amount is equivalent to one fluid ounce per 1.5 to six square feet of area. The rule of thumb is to spray until moist. Read the bottle label for full details.
