In October 2009, Snell Scientifics conducted treatment tests of Bed Bug Patrol Bed Bug Killer. An impres- sive mortality rate of 83% was shown within 30 minutes after application and 98% within four hours.
Upon completion of the study Bed Bug Patrol Bed Bug Killer provided 100% mortality. The test formula- tions proved significantly different from the untreated controls at each time interval. Therefore, Bed Bug
Patrol Bed Bug Killer proved to be an effective pesticide when applied as a direct spray applications to bed
bugs (Cimex lectularius).
Flow Rates: Bed Bug Patrol: 4.7ml/3 pulls = 1.6ml/pull
Confirming Pest Condition: All bed bugs were confirmed ‘alive’ 2 times prior to treatment:
1) The bed bugs were removed from the lab colonies by transferring only live specimens into the transfer containers.
2) After all bed bugs were transferred into the 1.75” CPVC cartridges; they were confirmed to be alive before any applications were made, or
continuing with the study.
Definition of Alive/Dead/Knockdown:
Alive: Specimen exhibits forward motion.
KD: Specimen exhibits some movement but cannot crawl.
Dead: Specimen exhibits no movement even when stimulated.
