Nuvan ProStrips for Bed Bugs
For Control of Bedbugs and Bedbug Eggs
NUVAN PROSTRIP may be used to control crawling bedbug nymphs and adults exposed to product vapors for 48 hours. In difficult to treat areas, a minimum treatment time of 72 hours will provide better results.
NUVAN PROSTRIP may be used to control bed bugs that have entered various items in an infested structure including, but not limited to: electronics, appliances,footwear, art work, collectibles, plush toys, clocks, radios, wall hangings, telephones, computers, printers, mattresses, box springs, books, lamps, furniture and other such items. Place infested items in a suitable plastic bag, poly sheeting, container or room that is closed to contain the NUVAN PROSTRIP treatment. Plastic bags or poly sheeting should be at least 2 mils thick. The closed volume for treatment should not exceed the volume to be treated for the size of the NUVAN PROSTRIP used.
Take care to avoid direct contact of the NUVAN PROSTRIP with the surface of items being treated. Seal items in the containment for a minimum of 48 hours to kill bedbug nymphs and adults. To kill any bedbug eggs, if suspected to be present, seal items in the treated space for seven days. Seal plastic bags and poly sheeting with as much air space around the treated article as is practical as this will enhance the exposure to the product vapors. Proper seal can be attained by any appropriate manner such as the use of tape, twist ties or other means. Professionals should test for adequate seal by testing for the escape of air from the sealed bag. Identify sealed treatment by a label indicating a pesticide treatment is in process that should not be disturbed by unauthorized persons. The label should include the date, pest professional person or company responsible and contact telephone number. When treatment is completed, remove treated items from the treatment in awell ventilated area and aired out for a period of not less than two hours.

- Can't believe after spending over $3,500 on exterminators
This product worked like a charm! I put these up a few days after receiving in closets, bags, bins, and items that I wrapped in thick plastic. After 72 hours, I checked for dead bugs and was I pleasantly surprised. The exterminators kept saying they couldn't find any bugs, but after using these and finding dead bugs in the carpet, I will never call another exterminator. They work quick, easy to use, and the fact that they last 4 months, is great.
- Excellent product-service
These Nuvan strips are quick & easy to use. They fit in almost anything and seem to be the best front line defense.
The people at "doyourownpestcontrol.com" are great to work with; understand your situation; and get products out to you ASAP.
- so far so good
Even though I think we caught the bed bug problem in my sons room pretty quickly, we seemed to have a hard time getting rid of them. I guess because not all of them would die with the Temprid spray and the other powder we bought, then the live ones would lay eggs, they'd hatch etc. So we bought the strips, left EVERYTHING, TV, playstation, laptop etc in the room, hung ALL 12 of the strips (especially around the head board because they seemed to be living in there) and then sealed the room off with plastic sheets and tape for TWO whole weeks. When we finally opened the room we saw dead bugs of all stages and even dead spiders. There were even bugs dead under the mattress! so we washed all the blankets etc, vacuumed, sprayed with bedlam and used the powder again. It's been a week and SO FAR no bites. I'll keep spraying weekly for at least a month or so and I ordered more strips just in case!
- Very Pleased
We had the beginning of a bed bug problem in our guest room. The result of a visitor inadvertently carrying one or more into our house. Our next guest ended up with bites and a severe reaction and we were mortified. I hung 6 of these in the room (12' x 8' x 9') for a week and it eliminated the bed bugs. Now it could be that eggs will hatch and it's not over but the product claims to kill the eggs too. So we put bed bug proof mattress covers on the bed, and set out traps with a CO2 generator (sugar and yeast in water) in the center but we have not seen any sign of the little buggers. The Nuvan strips are good for 4 months after opening so I'm placing the slightly used one in tubs of books, camping supplies, etc. Nuvan is odorless too - a plus.
- worked great
To our surprise the mosquito bites we were being plagued with turned out to bed bug bites. We sprayed and bombed and the problem did not go away. We were in dire need of a solution and fearful that the bugs would travel to the rest of our almost 5000 sq Ft house we gave the nuvan a try. I ordered several of the large ones because I was determined to get rid of them. We put 3 of the large devices in the bedroom where they were infested. Sure I read the dimensions on knew that one would be enough but this was a situation where overkill was not too much. We closed the room off for an entire week. And we are pleased to say they are gone. I wish we would have found this first but none the less they are gone. We have a few left for just in case.
- Worked Great
Had bed bugs in a sofa. Tried spray and powder several times but they kept coming back. Finally stood up the cushions and hung a couple Nuvan strips on them. Then covered the whole thing with plastic, taped the plastic to the floor and left it for 2 weeks. It worked perfect. Haven't seen a bug or been bitten for 2 months.
- Killed our bed hugs
Before buying this product, I researched it and found that the active ingredient in Nuvan strips is Dichlorvos which has been tested and effective. Nuvan helped kill our bed bug infestation along with Temprid Insecticide.
- Killed the roaches, silverfish and crickets
I used these in a storage unit for roaches, silverfish, and crickets. I put a couple strips out and they knocked them out. I appreciated something so easy to work with yet effective.
- Killed the bed bugs
I used these to treat all the clothing, books and some of our baby items. We had bed bugs every where. I left them in thick garbage bags for a week, killed the bed bugs and eggs inside them. I also used Cyzmic and Alpine Arerosol. I used everything, followed their instructions. They took the time on the phone to go over every detail.
