It seems every day a new product, method or tool is being introduced for bed bug infestations. How does a pest management professional (PMP) separate the “good” products from the not-so-good ones? When evaluating new products, it is important to ask a few important questions, such as:

  • Were there scientific studies completed by independent labs?
  • If so, how were the tests conducted?
  • Can I see all the generated data?

When you decide to try a new product, use it exclusively for 60 days. See how your callbacks are affected. Taking a more scientific approach to product selection will help you make decisions based on product performance, rather than other factors.
