Read the reviews, msds, ingredients of Steri-fab bed bug spray and how to apply this bed bug killer for best results.
Steri-fab bed bug spray is a U.S EPA approved non-toxic bed bug killer labeled for use on mattresses and upholstered furniture for killing bed bugs. It is a multi-use product that works as an insecticide, an antibacterial, a deodorant and a disinfectant.
If you need to treat a bed bug infestation, you may be concerned about the pathogens they are known to carry, along with the bites they inflict while you sleep. You may also be worried about lingering odors after insecticides are used to remove the pests, particularly if you are chemically sensitive or have children and pets around. Steri-fab is unique in that it kills not only bed bugs, but also bacteria; plus it also provides a deodorant benefit. Conditions that require insecticides often provide a breeding ground for bacteria, mold and fungus; Steri-fab effectively eradicates these as well.

The Smith Company: 65 Years Of Service
Steri-fab is product developed to easily kill bed bugs by the Smith Company, an organization that has provided the furniture and bedding industries with a variety of industrial products for the past 65 years. Steri-fab is one of the only EPA-approved bed bug control products labeled for use on mattress and upholstered furniture. In addition, it is approved for use in controlling infestations of dust mites and lice.
The insecticide is a fast-drying, biodegradable product that leaves no residue after application. It may be sprayed on any inanimate surface (except cooking utensils) and poses no threat to animals or humans once it dries. Applied the right way, it can thoroughly wipe out a bed bug infestation.
Steri-fab bed bug spray consists of isopropyl alcohol, a dual quat, and synthetic pyrethroid. A dual quat is a compound common to many disinfectants; pyrethroid is an organic compound used in many pesticides. It is the unique combination of these three ingredients that make Steri-fab such an effective, multi-use product.

Residual and Non-Residual Bed Bug Sprays
Residual sprays remain active long after they are applied; non-residuals’ active ingredients become inert after they have thoroughly dried.
An insecticide/disinfectant that remains active after drying can have long-term benefits, but also poses hazards: their effects on pests linger, making them potential sources of toxins for animals and humans.
Steri-fab bed bug spray is the non-residual type, meaning that its ingredients are no longer active on surfaces after drying. This is an advantage when using the spray on bedding, mattresses, and upholstered furniture; they will be safe to sleep or sit on, but any pests like bed bugs, lice or dust mites will be completely eliminated.
Applying Steri-Fab Bed Bug Killer
Steri-fab spray comes pre-diluted; so there is no need to add water or mixing. Use a sprayer designed for water-thin liquids to apply the product to any surfaces you believe to be infested with bed bugs.
Steri-fab is avaialble in 16-ounce spray bottles, ready to be applied. You can also get the gallon jugs if you have a wide area to treat. One gallon can cover approximately 1500 square feet.
To apply and kill bed bugs, spray Steri-fab on your mattress, bedding, headboard, and box spring, taking care to treat all cracks and crevices thoroughly. Spray at close range and allow the surfaces to dry for twenty minutes. You may wish to make a second pass to be sure you’ve gotten all the pests taken care of.
Is Steri-Fab Safe?
Steri-fab is non-toxic and has been labeled safe for use around pets and children. This is one of the top benefits of Steri-fab over other brands of insecticides. While it kills the bugs effectively, it does not poses any danger to kids and animals. Your child can safely curl up with his puppy on a Steri-fab treated bed twenty minutes after application. Used as directed, Steri-fab has no harmful side effects.
