How Does The BedBugShredderTM "Triple-Kill System" Work? (Phase 1) BedBugShredderTM Bed Bug Killing Deep Carpet Barrier Dust BedBugShredderTM carpet dust kills bed bugs by simply shredding their intestines. These micro crystals attach to the legs and bodies of bed bugs as they crawl across it. When they groom it off, the crystals are like ground glass in the bugs intestines, shredding them from the inside out, resulting in internal bleeding, mass dehydration and ultimately death. Its fine white powder lightly covers the immediate area of infestation (typically around the bed, furniture, etc.) for just a few days, that's all it takes for those areas to be bed bug free. It's simple to apply and you never have to worry about it harming your family or pets.. (Phase 2) BedBugShredderTM Direct Contact Bed Bug Killing Spray This intermediate treatment is the "direct contact killer" for treating mattresses, bed rails, couches and other furniture where the bed bug infestation is located. The specialized formula effectively eliminates the bed bugs and their offspring by causing immediate immobilization of the bed bug nymphs, followed by 100% mortality within 1 minute of the topical application. In addition to being 100% effective on bugs directly treated with BedBugShredderTM, it also has been proven to be effective against eggs and larva that are directly treated. Note: This phase also contains a shielding ingredient that dramatically helps to protect from future bed bug infestations.
