A.   There are several different products for Dust Mite control. Look into Steri-fab, which is a spray that does not have a residual but is great for an initial treatment or one time treatment. Also, Bedlam Bed Bug Spray has dust mites on the product label that is a great product as well and has a short residual of about 1 week to 2 weeks.

Q. What company should I choose one power spraying Cy kick, the other power spraying a product called demand cs. Both coming on a quarterly basis
I've decided to use a pest service on my home in Austin tx, I know the heat breaks down product as well as rains that we get in the Austin area every once in a while, I've broke my decision down to two companies, one is saying the product they will power spray is Cy-kick. The other company says they will be power spraying the product Demand cs. My main bugs that we are dealing with are scorpions, spiders, Beatles, and an occasional wasp.. Both companies are around the same price both wanting to come out quarterly. What's the main differences and if you were in my shoes and with your expertise, which product would you choose to be treated on your home for those specific issues.
A.   We recommend using Demand CS because it is a micro-encapsulated product. Therefore, Demand CS has a longer residual time.
