Biopren Insect Growth regulator spray is our most advanced insect control spray. Containing 0.27% S-Methoprene and 0.18% Pyrethrins, Biopren spray stops the development and life cycle of bed bugs, fleas and moths, therefore stopping the next generation of pests reproducing.
The spray soaks into the insects/moths feet and once the insect comes to clean themselves as their habitual behaviour shows, the spray is ingested and death occurs within 48 hours.
The insects are not able to develop beyond their current life stage once they ingest the spray. The Insect Growth Regulator, stops juvenile bed bugs from growing in to adult bed bugs therefore preventing them, to reach sexual maturity and being able to reproduce.
As the below information shows, when dealing with bed bugs a heavier dose of spray is recommended for each square metre compared to other crawling insects. This is as bed bugs are more difficult to eradicate as a whole and can be more durable to previously used insecticides. We would recommend then retreating with the spray after 2 weeks.
Dispensing 0.6ml of liquid per spray, we recommend using the below amounts of spray per square metre according to the pest you are treating
Application per square metre
8-10 trigger pulls (48-60ml per square metre) for Fleas, Cockroaches and Crickets
24-26 trigger pulls (150-180ml per square metre) for Bed Bugs
The 1 litre treatment when dealing with bed bugs should cover a room size of around 30 square metres, we would always recommending buying more than necessary as often sofas and beds take a lot of the spray that isn't accounted for when working out a room size.
When tackling a bed bug infestation, treat the entire structure and area of the bed including headboard, mattress, bed frame bed base, bed legs and wall surfaces close to the bed. Biopren should also be used inside drawers and cupboards, it is safe for clothing to be worn even if they are being held in a sprayed drawer. Biopren spray does have a flushing agent within it, so if you see increased bed bug activity after treatment this is the insects being lured out of hiding onto the sprayed areas, this is not a sign that the treatment is not working but in fact a sign it is working perfectly.
The spray is available in numerous sizes and is supplied with a ready to use trigger spray for easy application around the property. Bed linen, pillows and quilts should not be sprayed but washed on a hot wash.
Frequently asked questions
To eliminate a bed bug problem, a coordinated, thorough and planned treatment of every room affected in the home is required. Follow these steps:
- Hot wash your bed sheets and bedding on the highest temperature the label allows. This hot temperature wash will remove any bugs and eggs present on your bedding.
- Vacuum your carpets and mattress, this may pick up any deposited eggs or any bugs on these surfaces. Immediately remove the bag from the hoover and dispose of it in your outside bin.
- Open all cupboard and wardrobe doors as well as drawers, leaving all clothing, bed sheets and toys out in the open. Tip the mattress on one end so the entire mattress is open to the fumes. Make everything in the room as accessible to the smoke as possible. You may want to unscrew light switches, remove photographs and pictures from their frames and from the walls as well as taking out bulbs in light sockets.
- Place the required amount of fumers (according to your room size) on a metal baking tray. Remove the lid of the fumer and light the fumer. Seal and leave the room for 3-4 hours. We recommend, if possible, treating overnight due to the nocturnal behaviour of bed bugs.
- After the given number of hours have passed, re-enter the room and open all the windows and doors to air the room for at least two hours.. You may in certain circumstances see bed bugs out in the open. The fumes have forced the bugs out of the cracks and crevices. We would then recommend using Protector FCIK instant kill spray to kill these bugs whilst out in the open.
- Using the Biopren BFS-a bed bug spray, apply to all carpeted areas, the mattress (not the bed sheets directly), the bed frame and inside any wardrobes and cupboards but not directly onto clothing as the spray can be an irritant to skin. Be thorough, getting into every fold, crack and crevice. Once the spray is dry, it is safe for any pets and children to re-enter the room. The spray needs to be re-applied after 4-6 weeks until the infestation is eliminated.
- Apply Residex P powder to any cracks and crevices in walls, around skirting boards and near plug sockets where spray is unadvisable.
After this treatment, you can continue to sleep in the bedroom or live in the treated rooms as normal. We then highly recommend that you repeat the treatment 7-10 days after the initial treatment to ensure any second stage bed bugs are also killed, before they can restart the breeding cycle.
Once the spray has soaked into carpets and other sprayed surfaces, pets and children are safe to walk or crawl on the surfaces. The spray cannot be applied directly onto pets and their coats.
No. Whilst in most cases the spray would have no effect, it can be an irritant to sensitive skin.
There is no product on the market for the amateur user that will kill bed bug eggs. Insecticides have great difficulty penetrating the exterior of the eggs so once an infestation has been treated these eggs will survive and then the population can slowly regenerate. This is why we would therefore recommend retreating the effected area after 7-10 days.
