Praying.... (multi-prong approach)
Damn thrift stores !!!! Living in an apartment doesn't help either (older structure). Currently using mattress encasements, vacuuming, TSC, shots of Bedlam Plus, Nuvan strips and Cimexa powder and praying for relief. Probably have had the issue for months, but just getting bit now (big bites!), 3-5 bites in lines. I saw a skin or two, one dehydrated dead bug (with Bedlam) and one adult (looking like a big golden raisin in my bedroom carpet). Started two weeks ago with the chemical onslaught. Seeing fewer bites, but...will not feel safe until I can go a full month without being the guest buffet. TSC doesn't smell - good. If it is as good as Bedlam Plus remains to be seen, but I've heard such good things that I am praying that this will do the trick.

A strategic WMD in my bedbug war!!
Last August I had a heavy bed bug infestation in my bedroom. It really snuck up on me. by the time I figured it out I realized they were very well established. After lots of research, I settled on Temprid SC and Cimexa, a non-toxic silica desiccant powder. I bought an inflatable bed for my living room and sprayed a barrier of Temprid around it and dusted the sides of the bed and around it with Cimexa. I sprayed my old mattress and boxspring, then promptly disposed of them, along with an armoir. The bedroom was now empty except a cedar chest and I sprayed everywhere, even stuffing sprayed old t-shirts against the base of the door to prevent escape! I took my shop vac and attached the hose to the "blow" port. I poured about 1/2 cup Cimexa into the end of the hose. From outside the room I pointed the hose toward the middle of the cieling and switched on the vac. A cloud of Cimexa filled the empty bedroom and I shut the door. This was in August, remember, so with closed windows the temperatures went into the high nineties in the room, which bedbugs don't do well with.

I also did perimiter and baseboard spraying throughout the apartment with Temprid and put Cimexa into cracks and behid outlet wall plates. When I got a steel bedframe, I treated iside all the parts with cimexa and put the legs in plastic dishes with a coating of the stuff. If they can't feed on you, they eventually die off, but they are tough MFs!!

I've now gone eleven months with no sign of them!!

Temprid SC Is Worth the Money!
I found a small bug crawling on the side of my mattress and didn't know what it was. After a quick internet search, I discovered it was a bed bug. Needless to say, I found myself in a panic. After doing a deeper inspection it was apparent my mattress was infested. Mind you, my husband and I showed no signs of bites, whatsoever...but I'm quite sure these little devils were feasting on us nightly. I called a couple of local bug guys and both estimates were over $1000. I was devastated. Who has that kind of money? After extensive research, I came upon this site and read reviews about Temprid SC. Thank God I did. I bought the Temprid SC, washed everything in hot water, dried on high heat, encased my mattress and box spring, and sprayed my whole house...even my furniture. I also used Delta Dust in my walls. I've treated my home with Temprid every 7 days for the last 3 weeks and haven't seen a live bug in 2 weeks. This stuff works!! I intend to keep Temprid on hand and will use it monthly. Thank you, Doyourownpestcontrol!!! You have a customer for life!

The real deal
Bought a gazebo for my patio. It was lovely until bugs started congregating on the nets and in the ceiling. I sprayed this stuff expecting it to keep the bugs away came back 2 hours later and it was bug cemetary. We cleaned all the dead bugs and 2 days later their still falling dead as qiuck as they arrive. This works great. I keep it on hand it has never failed me. Also sprayed my home after seeing one bed bug I think it crawled out of some things I got from goodwill, I never saw another. I use this often indoors as well my house had so many different kinds of bugs and spiders this gets rid of everything Try it u wont be disappointed.

Temprid SC
This product worked great killing the bed bugs. . I al sprayed Temprid SC on my carpets and hardwood floors. I know the instructions do not recommend using on carpets but I wanted to get rid of these little suckers quick. Actually I sprayed Temprid on every thing the sofa's, mattresses, dining room chair, accent chairs, picture frames, area rugs, carpets, in the dressers, bookshelves, TV stands, my fabric sneakers, anyplace I thought these bug could hide. We keep the dog off the carpets and floors until the Temprid SC dried. No problems at all....

Best Product I have ever worked with for Bed Bugs
This product when used, has given me absolutely no fear of call backs doing bed bugs. The product has been extremely successful in getting the job done and with the addition of Bedlam and Tempo dust our work has come to increase our profitability. I have even retreated a customers home that was treated previously by another company who had done two previous treatments before and according to him the treatment we provided with the use of Temprid SC., according to him has completely cleared the bed bug infestation. He was extremely pleased and

Cimexa dust and temprid sc
Remember everyone. You should use more then just temprid sc if your getting bit every nite. Cimexa should be used with this product to eliminate bed bugs.this works trust me. I've been through it and thank God I'm done with it.

Works with hard work
I had not eaten or slept in my home for 2 weeks after finding out i had bed bugs.which my sister brought to my home from an apartment she was living in. At first I panicked and threw everything in my home away. Everything. I was literally starting over again. I spent 200 plus on store brand items that did not work. Even paid a guy who had done pest control for 15 years come and spray and say I shouldn't have any more problems unless they are in my cloths. After doing research. Extensive research I had become obsessed with getting rid of these bugs.but I knew spraying one time would not do the job.so he was wrong. I stressed and cried over this thing until I searched temprid sc and came across this website. I ordered the 3 single doses of it in the residential pro kit and wanted asap.so I called to get it sooner. I was greeted by a man who told me everything I needed to know about bed bugs and how to get rid of them. He sold me a lot and told me what to do. I did it. I called back because like i said I was obsessed and wanted to know when they would go. I was greeted by a different man who was just as kind and caring and told me in 21 days from doing everything they said to do I should be ok.and I was. It's going on 1 month abs all I see is dead bugs.no bites and I can sleep. As a matter of fact I sleep to much now. I want to thank you guys so much. From what I researched I could have spent 1800 to 6000 to rid these lil Devils and with you guys I probably spent less then 200 dollars. Thank you so much and now I am willing to help anyone going through this terrible ordeal. It's hard work. But I would have had to work even harder for $6000.

I'm working on it as I looking get this down
I'm so happy to know that I just been up all night and day can t sleep need to get them out of my home asap
Review by Jr / (Posted on 7/18/2016)
This is the exact same stuff that Cook's Pest Control uses. If you are looking for normal outside pest control use this stuff. Go buy yourself a backpack sprayer and put 2 tips in it, shake it well. Sweep your eves down and spray up there as well. If you have a crawl space 2 foot out 1 foot up. If no crawl space 2 foot up and 1 foot out.

no go yet
my experience hasn't been optimal so far. I've been spraying TSC every day or so for four weeks, even bought a new bed... and the little monsters are trying to infest the new bed. i'm going crazy trying to get rid of them... it does great work on ants, though. after treating areas where ants usually show up, we haven't seen one... but the pantry moths are still around, as well as the bed bug infestation - I do think I am managing to keep them under control, but they aren't gone yet. how much longer????
Review by nottoohappy / (Posted on 7/15/2016)
Temprid does not get rid of all the bed bugs OR eggs
We moved into a place that had a bed bug problem. The exterminator already sprayed temprid 3 times prior to us moving in, he also used bedlam. Well we are still seeing bedbugs and he treated again for us about 2 weeks ago. This stuff does kill them, we've seen some dead ones since the extermination. But this stuff doesn't kill them all. Now we have to either move and leave literally everything behind or pay a better exterminator since our landlord won't pay for a better one. We have small children and this stuff doesn't work!

Review by Tired in georgia / (Posted on 6/18/2016)
Is it typical to still see live ones after the second treatment? Is it normal to still be getting bit?
I keep reading all these great reviews about Temprid SC ,I discovered a bed bug problem in my living room, bought the Temprid SC and it has reduced the problem,but my son is still waking up with bites most mornings and this is after two hefty treatments.
I've done everything suggested,spending hours at a time vacuuming and cleaning before I spray. Why are they still here? I'm praying that after the third treatment they will be gone,but at this point I am not hopeful.
Review by Hopeless in Texas / (Posted on 5/16/2016)
The product was easy to use. There was no strong odor. We sprayed it while a baby was in the house and she had no reaction to it at all. We had been struggling with bedbugs for months and we have not seen any since we applied it

So far so good
Got this for a couple of tenants. Have sprayed twice so far and they said haven't seen any or been bit. Going to spray again in another week.

Peace at last, thank God Almighty, peace at last !
This product is wonderful. I'm finally able to get a good night's sleep !!! After weeks of being terrorized by bed bugs, I can close my eyes and NOT feel something crawling on me. Even when I couldn't find anything, I just KNEW they were there. I finally feel confident that they are gone !!!! I've shared Temprid SC with neighbors, my management company and plan on purchasing some for my daughter. So glad I found this !
Review by Milos mommy / (Posted on 12/28/2015)
Good But not Great
We bought this product with High Hopes that we would knock down the infestation in about 2 Applications. We are about to make out 5th application, at a Double Dosage, and we're still finding Bed bugs. However, the population is significantly reduced. It kills the hell out of most all of the other insects, like Spiders and those Brown Beetles that come out around Harvest time. So Until we win the War, I can't give this stuff 5 stars.

DIY RESPONSE: Temprid SC is a great product but by itself it is difficult to apply into the small cracks and crevices in which bed bugs hide. We recommend the use of one of the several kits on our site which contain additional products designed for crack and crevice application. If you need further assistance please call us at 1-800-476-3368.
Review by Ward 1 Alderman / (Posted on 12/3/2015)
Adjacent neighbor has bedbug infestation and sprayed with cheap bed bug spray. It sent the bed bugs into hiding and a few found their way over to my house. I sprayed with temprid and have them spraying with my temprid. Once every 7 days for 3weeks now once every 2 weeks for 1 month. Then once a month for every. It's been 5 weeks and I have not seen any bugs or nobody in my home has beef bitten. Thank god for temprid. I am a bug aphob and can't live like that.
Review by Nae / (Posted on 11/14/2015)
I purchased this product about two months ago for a bedbug problem that I didn't even know that I had. I have a three unit rental in the city and my tenants were to embarrassed to tell me they had bedbugs. I started noticing bites on some of them and called a exterminator to treat the building. When I asked my tenants how long this has been going on they finally admitted about a year. I was fuming mad nobody told me . These things spread like crazy and the last thing I needed was to drag them home. A big name exterminator quoted me $2400.00 a month to spray and said that they can only guarantee there work for 30 days. I couldn't afford that and they also said it could take six treatments. I bought the large bottle of Temprid SC and sprayed it myself. The problem is gone in two units and very minimal in the other. I have used about half the bottle and am pleased with the results , I will keep spraying till the problem is completely gone. I plan on buying more and make it a habit of spraying every few months after just to be on the safe side. Highly recommend this product.

2 nights no bites
I ordered temprid after trying Raid bed bug and flea spray. The raid killed most of them but not all of them. Still got a couple bites that night and they came back over the weekend before this came. When i got this i sprayed and have had not seen a bed bug or been bitten. I am going to spray again in 7 days, and then again after that just to be sure.
Review by Biggmatt / (Posted on 8/15/2015)
It works
What else really matters? It worked great. I had a horrible bed bug infestation. It had been building for over a year. They were everywhere. This product used with crimexa dust really knocked them out. It took a few treatments but I don't even see them anymore. They are going away and that is all I wanted.
Review by Toy / (Posted on 5/13/2015)
Great product
This has been our primary defense against all crawling critters in an 8 unit apartment building. I have also found it effective against Carpenter Bees at home, sparying the holly bushes the bees love to harvest ... they feed on the nectar in the bushes, get poisoned in the process, and die before they can fly 2 stories high where I can't reach them to bore their holes!
