    This stuff lives in my Technicide Duster!! Once I treat my customers properties with it for the initial treatment I almost never have any call backs.

    We were doubtful about this product since we have literally tried everything to rid bed bugs. THIS PRODUCT HAS SAVED MY SANITY!!

    This stuff is absolutely the BEST and only stuff I've found that destroys bedbugs.

    Great product, Terminex was a rip off, $3000 and still had bed bugs, applied cimexa 1 time and they've been gone for 1&1/2 months & no signs of any live ones.
    Review by Wvmtmama / (Posted on 11/14/2017)
    Worked better than anything I have tried so far
    Bugs were gone in about a day from application in the places I treated. Wanted to find something non-toxic, but I have tried the box store poison sprays, peppermint spray, DE powder, and about every home remedy I could find. This is the most effective treatment I have seen so far.

    Great powder for bed bugs. And quick and free shipping
    Cimexa silica gel powder is a God sent item for me. With the powder and bellows I bought from Do your own.com I was able to rid my apartment of bed bugs and also my neighbors Apt.

    Absolutely #1 to kill bed bugs
    I spent a good year trying a multitude of products and Cime X is absolutely the best. It is messy to work with but with experience it gets easier. It's a must to wear gloves as this stuff sucks the life out of anything alive. Get a duster to help distribute this stuff. Also a learning curve using the duster. Be patient and puff this stuff on baseboards, dressers, especially around the bedding "bead" where they hide. Or get a mattress cover and dust the whole bed before applying the cover. Another idea is ti put the feet of the bed in small containers dusted with Cime X. As the bed bugs clime up the containers they fall into them and die.
    Bottom line -- this stuff completely eradicated the bed bugs.

    Cimexa Dust is the ONLY product that works!
    Forget about bombs, sprays and hand-to-hand combat.. The Cimexa dust was the most effective product of the several that I tried. In fact, it was the ONLY product that eliminated the bedbugs. I also used the hand bellows duster (a must) and the mattress liner. No bugs in a year!

    Awesome product
    This product is great and the only thing we use. It dries up any bug and kills them.
    Review by Sassy in indiana / (Posted on 7/29/2016)
    This is what works!!
    This stuff works! Get the bulb duster, though to apply it. It will kill every bug that gets in your home. Heck, if our dog gets a flea that jumps off, the flea is dead too. As far as I know it is safe for pets also. I had a bedbug colony about 4 years ago and started using cimexa then. I recommend this to anyone with bedbugs. You can put your small items in ziplocks, put a puff of cimexa in there and seal it up. We had put our larger items in tubs, and used our sprayer to puff in this product. Nothing better. The large container is a good investment.

    Cimexa dust
    This stuf works great if you have a puff bulb to lightly spread it across the area that are infected with Bed bugs. I continues to kill as long it is in a dry area away from water an spill's.

    Great product
    Excellent product. It dries all bugs quickly ending the infestation. This is really all you need to get rid of them.
    Review by Basia / (Posted on 3/4/2016)
    This product works great!
    I actually never saw bed bugs but I applied the dust along the cracks of my walls and doors and I have not seen any critters creeping and crawling. Whereas before, I would see spiders from time to time. But now I see nothing. Great Job so far!!!
    Review by Lisa / (Posted on 11/12/2015)
    I recommend it, it works
    It was recommended to me from a friend who used this product and like she said, and I most definitely agree, it works.
    Review by Pamela / (Posted on 11/6/2015)
    Fantastic product for all bugs.
    I had an infestation of chiggers in my house, sprinkled the powder around the baseboards, into nooks and crannies.
    I would however recommend to buy the bellow duster, much easier to distribute this powder with.
    After even after the first day of vacuuming and sprinkling the dust, I haven't had any more bug bites, so far.
    I would also HIGHLY RECOMMEND the 2 step method of this dust AND the bedlam-plus aerosol. Use the aerosol first to kill the bugs and the powder to keep them away.
    Doyourownpestcontol website IS THE BEST with products,assistance and support.
    Thank you guys, you are a life saver.

    I don't ever want to hear that phrase again don't let the bedbugs bite
    So far based on the reviews I will be purchasing 5 gallons pail of this powder my children are being eaten alive by the end of this week they might need a blood transfusion I have moved in to this apartment a year and a half ago never seen anything like it bed bugs or the new roaches
    Review by Carlito / (Posted on 9/2/2015)
    Great product -seems to work.
    So far I applied cimexa all around the baseboards and over the bed frame/headboard after 3 days of dusting I haven't seen a bed bug so let's hope it stays that way. I was starting to get anxious about the whole situation and almost broke up with my gf since she brought them to my house. Having bed bugs was the worst experience ever but, not seeing bed bugs even for the past 3 days gives me hope that I finally beat this thing. :)
    Review by John / (Posted on 7/23/2015)
    Dust is really good on bed bugs
    The CimeXa Insecticide Dust one bottle was sufficient for all my house. It eradicated all the bed bugs in 2-3 weeks. I have poured the dust across all corners of all the rooms using paint brush. Its little tiresome, but worth my efforts. Along with this dust, I have purchased bed bug mattress cover and bed frame. Now I can sleep all through the night without any bed bug torture.
    Review by Chaitanya / (Posted on 7/10/2015)
    BUY IT!!!!!
    Forget all the garbage you see on the local store shelf's claiming to kill "Bed Bugs'. Cimexa is the ONLY product that worked for us. It does not work overnight. It will take a few weeks before you start to see results, but trust me on this! It got so bad in our home that I would wrap myself in a cacoon of fitted sheets each night when I went to bed! My husbands body was covered in bites. However within a few weeks of spreading the Cimexa, my husband no longer has bites and I no longer have to sleep wrapped up like a mummy. We are still dealing with them, but nothing like we had before. Please do yourself a favor and order this product. Also our order arrived with in 72hrs, so their general shipping seems to be quick.

    I bought cimexa dust and used as instructed after 2-3 weeks no sign of bugs works great
    my experiance with bed bugs was the worst ever in my life did' not have the money for professional exterminator so i researched the bed bugs on line and bought some cimexa insecticide dust and used in stratigic areas and after 2-3 week no more bugs if your able to do your own pest control i would recomend it it will give you peace of mind knowing its done right and there really gone
    Review by bob / (Posted on 8/3/2014)
    Very effective ant control
    I used this to take care of a recurring problem I had with ants; a trail of black ants nearly half an inch wide would routinely enter my house through a gap under the door to get at my cat's food. Commercial sprays and baits did nothing for over two weeks.

    Two hours after a light dusting along the door jamb, their trail in the house, and around the feeding station, there was no trail. Any ants that remained inside were dead or very close, and all with very little risk to myself or my pet.

    I followed this site's directions and did the two-product, two-treatment process to eliminate the fleas in the dog/human living areas. Seems to have worked. No more fleas.
    Review by Dan / (Posted on 7/22/2014)
    we are into our 3rd week of using this product along with transport GHP. We moved into an apt. that had fleas and bed bugs. An exterminator came every 2 weeks for 2 months. about a month after than we realized they did a terrible job. The problem was worse than ever. In furniture was nests of bed bugs and eggs galore. Day 1 we used this and the other products as directed and have repeat now every 7 days. Since day 1 we have seen nothing except dead bugs a few days after first treatment. My opinion. Works great. Easy to use.
    Review by cryans73 / (Posted on 5/26/2014)
    It is effective but....
    This dust will kill bed bugs but I have found it to kill them slowly over weeks after 4 or so applications. I have yet to find a dust that will kill them faster.

    Also, this dust is difficult to work with. I get more clumps or empty air coming out of my duster than other dusts which give me a consistent puff each time, so you will use more of this product than other dusts. Nevertheless, the 5lb bucket gets you an enormous amount of product.
    Review by Gaston / (Posted on 4/29/2014)
    This place is the best!
    Our Apartment complex had been using a "professional" pest company to help with maintenance however, we simply cannot beat the product found here with the ever increasing Bed Bug epidemic and tenants bringing them in. Although we have been using this company for many years now, this was a new product for us. upon use the "dust" factor gets everywhere, in a good way, and kills both potential bed bugs and roaches. We did witness dead roaches and a BB. We feel confident once again we can produce pest free units. Only 4 stars as its too early to tell for the 6 month use. Well worth the trial.
    Review by FlState / (Posted on 1/22/2014)
    God sent me to your website. My mother and I had a plague of bedbugs and my mother became so depressed, she said that God must have forsaken her. They were behind her bed and in her curtains. Together, we had spent almost $250.00 in sprays and powers from Lowes, Home Depot, Wal-Mart and Ace Hardware, yet nothing was killing them. Then I discovered CimeXa Insecticide Powder on your website. It worked. Slowly over weeks, we saw less and less of them. Both of us are so scarred by this experience, both emotionally and physically, that we still look for them. However, to date, we have not seen any (I still cannot bring myself to believe that they are gone). I gave some CimeXa Insecticide Powder to my sister and it even killed the roaches in my sister’s home. I thank God for your product.
