Bed Bugs

Find a Bed Bug Pesticide Product

EPA has developed a search tool that can help you choose an EPA-registered bed bug product that meets your needs. We cannot provide specific pesticide use recommendations.The products listed in this search tool are those that can be purchased by any consumer. There are other products that are only available for purchase and use by specially trained individuals.

Bed Bug Product Search Tool

As with all pest control situations:
  • Use a product that fits your needs.
  • Never use products indoors that are not approved for indoor use.
  • Ensure that label directions are followed. For example, be sure to consider where you want to treat your bed bug infestation.
  • Be aware of the reasons that treatment can fail.

Foggers and bug bombs should not be used as the only method to attempt to control bed bugs.
