In September 2009, Snell Scientifics conducted treatment tests of Avenger Organics Bed Bug Killer. An impressive mortality rate of 98% was shown within 30 minutes after the applications and maintained a high mortality rate throughout the study. Upon completion of the study Avenger Organics Bed Bug Killer provided 100% mortality. The test formulations proved significantly different from the untreated controls at each time interval. Therefore, Avenger Organics Bed Bug Killer proved to be an effective pesticide when applied as a direct spray application to bed bugs (Cimex lectularius).
Kill Bed Bugs with Avenger Organics 100% Natural Non-Pesticide... Imagine your warm, cozy bed and sleeping soundly through the night. Then you wake up - you have an itch that needs to be scratched. It feels like something is crawling on you…and then you sit up, turn on the light and there they are, BED BUGS... they're everywhere, even on you... it's no longer a nightmare - this is reality!
This doesn't only happen in underdeveloped nations. This has become a reality for an increasing number of Americans. If you have ever experienced bed bugs, you may be embarrassed and frustrated, but it’s not your fault. Bed bugs can appear in anyone’s home - even the White House.
Bed Bugs can be brought back home after camping; traveling, in packages, etc. or they can come in from the outdoors on their own. After bed bugs arrive, they survive by feeding on any warm blooded animal. That includes your kids, your pets, and you. Bed Bugs are more active at night, especially when you’re sleeping. It is in the middle of the night, when you are unable to defend yourself, that bed bugs are crawl into your bed and bite you. The thought of this makes your skin crawl and now you have a clear understanding of the old saying, "Sleep tight, and don’t let the bed bugs bite".
What are Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are small wingless insects that Bed bugs Bed bugs feed solely upon on the blood of warm-blooded animals. Bed bugs and their relatives have evolved as nest parasites. Certain kinds inhabit bird nests and bat roosts and await the return of their hosts; others have adapted well to living in the ‘nests’ (homes) of people.
Hatchling bed bugs are about the size of a poppy seed, and adults are about 1/4 of an inch in length. Looking from above they are an oval in shape, but are flattened from top to bottom when viewing them from the side. Their color ranges from nearly white (just after molting) or a light tan to a deep brown or burnt orange. The host’s blood may appear as a dark red or black mass within the bug’s body. Because they never develop wings, bed bugs cannot fly. When disturbed, bed bugs actively seek shelter in dark cracks and crevices.
Repeated exposures to bed bug bites during a period of several weeks or more causes people to become sensitized to the saliva of these bugs; additional bites may then result in mild to intense allergic responses. The skin lesion produced by the bite of a Bed Bug resembles those caused by many other kinds of blood feeding insects, such as mosquitoes and fleas.
How Do Bed Bugs Get In Your Home?
Because Bed Bugs hide in small crevices, they may accompany luggage, furniture, clothing, pillows, boxes, and other such objects as stowaways when moved between apartments, homes and hotels. Used furniture, particularly bed frames and mattresses, are of greatest risk of harboring bed bugs and their eggs. Thus, you should carefully scrutinize and consider the history of any used furniture, particularly ‘street’ items so plentiful at the beginning and end of each academic year.
Because they readily survive for many months without feeding, Bed Bugs may already be present in apparently ‘vacant’ and ‘clean’ apartments. Bed Bugs can wander between adjoining apartments through voids in walls and holes though which wires and pipes pass.

Looking from above they are an oval in shape, but are flattened from top to bottom when viewing them from the side. Their color ranges from nearly white (just after molting) or a light tan to a deep brown or burnt orange.
Carefully inspect the bed frame, mattress, and other furniture for signs of bed bugs and their eggs. Although dead bed bugs,
cast bug skins and blood spots may indicate an infestation occurred previously; they do not confirm that an infestation is still active. Search for live (crawling) bugs and ensure they are bed bugs before considering treating. Keep in mind the eggs can be as small as a poppy seed and the larvae as small as a grain of rice.
What Do Bed Bug Bites Look Like?
Generally bed bug bites look like typical mosquito or flea bites, which are red, raised bumps. While feeding, they inject a tiny amount of their saliva into the skin. Repeated exposures to bed bug bites during a period of several weeks or more causes people to become sensitized to the saliva of these bugs; additional bites may then result in mild to intense allergic responses.
How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs?
The following step-by-step instructions are devised by our team of experts who have dealt with these types of infestations on a daily basis.
- Look for the Bed Bugs: The first step to getting rid of bed bugs is to do some investigative work. Pay close attention to where people sit or have slept for long periods of time. Bed Bugs are visible to the eye. The adult bed bug is brown to reddish-brown, oval-shaped, flattened, and about 1/4 to 5/8 inch long. Be prepared to inspect all areas of the room using a bright flashlight and a magnifying glass if you have one available. Bed Bugs can leave reddish- brown spots on mattresses and have a distinct smell. Remember that the bed bug's flat shape and small body enable it to hide easily in cracks and crevices. Bed bugs, eggs, larvae, and fecal deposits will go unnoticed with just a casual inspection. You should leave nothing unturned when doing your inspection for bed bugs and no site should be ignored that may be a bed bug hiding place... they hide anywhere! Examples: wall sconces, behind electrical switch plates, behind wall posters, between books and magazines on shelves and in racks. Inspect all the places near sleeping areas, which may mean taking the bed frames apart! Bed bugs can migrate to other rooms and even travel with you!

- Prepare The Area: A thorough cleaning of the premises will make bed bug control efforts much more effective. Strip all beds down to the bare sleeping surface. Bedding, sheets, blankets, comforters, covers, and shams should be washed in very hot water. Very hot water (120 degrees) will kill the bed bugs. Personal items (stuffed animals, soft toys, blankets) should be removed, cleaned with a vacuum cleaner, and bagged in plastic for several weeks or more. Clutter should be removed from furniture tops and bed stands. Open up the clock radio and phone (that's right, Bed Bugs may be hiding in there too!). Tap the open ends into a bag or on sticky tape so the bed bugs can’t jump and hide. VACUUM EVERY SURFACE IN AFFECTED BEDROOMS INCLUDING THE INSIDE OF DRESSER DRAWERS, DRESSER CAVITIES, WALLS, AND CLOSETS. In severe infestations, clothing should be removed from dressers and chests. Utilize a crack & crevice vacuum tool to remove bed bugs from deep harborage such as: under baseboards; under carpet edges (pull up along the tack strip); around switch plates (you may have to remove the plate first); from the bed frame; inside box springs; inside furniture; and from floor cracks. Use a hand-brush attachment to vacuum up most of the bed bugs. Vacuum mattresses and box springs (especially along seams and folds); upholstered furniture; and behind drapes. Also vacuum the floor completely. After vacuuming, remove the bag from the vacuum, tie it tightly, and remove it from the premises ASAP. Remember, really infested bedding may have to be completely discarded. IMMEDIATELY THROW AWAY VACUUM BAG.
- Attack the Bed Bugs Where They're Hiding: Hot Steam from an electric steamer is the next step in fighting bed bugs. After vacuuming, use a steam machine to get in all of the cracks, crevices, carpet and even on the bedroom furniture and mattresses. Anywhere you think they may be hiding. This will ensure that you got most of them prior to final treatment. To get rid of bed bugs effectively, you've got to hit them hard where they're hiding--in cracks and crevices. Spray Avenger Organics Bed Bug Killer on wall voids and under baseboards and in cracks and crevices, soak the areas thoroughly. Concentrate most of your efforts on vacuuming, steaming, and final spraying our Avenger Organics Bed Bug Killer into crack and crevices. These are the areas where bed bugs hide.
- Treat the Bed: The bed area needs to be treated next. Look carefully at the folds and seams of the mattress, the headboard, foot board (if present), box spring/support platform, frame, etc. You will be able to see the bed bugs with the visible eye or the aid of a small magnifying glass. Use the electric steamer to hit these areas hard. All cracks and crevices of the bed structure should be treated for bed bugs with a light application of Avenger Organics Bed Bug Killer. Apply the spray on the tufts, folds and seams of the mattress. The underside of the box spring may be sprayed as well.
TIP: Cover the mattress with a mattress cover being careful not to make any tear holes in the new cover. Also spray a perimeter with Natural Bug Killer around the bed floor as a repellant.
- Treat the Furniture: (Night Stand, Chests, Dressers, Couches and Chairs) the last step in bed bug elimination is to do a very thorough crack and crevice treatment of the furniture in the room. For wooden furniture pieces, you cannot miss any cracks. Apply Avenger Organics Bed Bug Killer to upholstered furniture; use a similar treatment as the mattress and box spring. Always turn bed bug infested furniture over and treat from the bottom. Look carefully underneath all the legs of the furniture! Bed Bugs love to hide in the most unlikely places! Some furniture may have hollow metal framing (children’s bunk beds are an example). Treat inside the metal tubing with dusts, aerosols or liquids as discussed in the bedding paragraph above.
- Follow-up in 2 weeks: vacuum, vacuum, vacuum & steam everything! Getting rid of bed bugs is not easy. Inspect the treated room again in two weeks. Perform a thorough inspection (especially cracks and crevices) and continually treat any area where bed bugs are persisting or where they have moved.
TIP: Heavy bed bug infestations may need more than a second treatment. Be persistent!
