Frequent Questions

What pesticides should I use to control bed bugs?

EPA cannot recommend specific products, since we are a regulatory agency. Our role is to evaluate the pesticide products to ensure that all registered products meet our standards for safety and effectiveness. It is also virtually impossible to assess pest infestations and make accurate recommendations without visiting the site of the infestation. Use our bed bug product search tool to find products that are registered for use against bed bugs, or consider contacting a local pest control company with good reviews about bed bug control.
