    I didn't have any bugs on my mattress though... They were hiding in the cracks of the bed itself. We had to take the bed completely apart, otherwise, they would just come out at night when the sheets and things were on the bed and bite. They wouldn't have gotten onthe mattress where he poured that, or the floor of the bed. This sounds like DE, which I would recommend if you get the food grade I think it is, not the pool/outdoor grade, but I think that the guy had the majority of the bugs exterminated from that PCO and used this to kill any that weren't in the wood parts of the bed. I mean he said that the PCO came out twice? That's going to get a lot of bugs. I think the combination of professionals AND DE would work like a charm.I have read that a lot of people apply DE around baseboards and behind outlets if they live in apartments to make sure they don't travel from one apartment to another. Good luck.

    Sounds like the product is DE. He should say what it is. He should also talk about the precautions you need to take when you use it.

    It is just DE and shouldn't be used like he shows. It is very effective but should be used with precautions.

    See the DE hazards tag up top for details.

    Has anyone used this bedbug powder and no for sure that it is just DE? My next step is to buy some DE and start trying to get it in the walls and baseboards, and the bottle that this comes in appears pretty handy as it doesn't look like you would need to buy a separate puffer type mechanism. The suggested DE's in the amazon store on this site look like they only come in bags, boxes or shakers, so I think I would to figure out some separate puffer to buy. Thanks for any suggestions!

    He scratches himself a few times in the beginning. Might not be quite so effective. LMAO!

    It is DE at a ridiculous markup.

    Get this duster it rocks.

    Please read my comments about this video in this thread:
    http://bedbugger.com/forum/topic/_-great-video-which-got-rid-of-my-bed-bugs#post-26820

    Note the poster in that thread was a spammer pretending to be a satisified customer. We have repeatedly seen people promoting this "helpful" video/product who never posted to another thread.

    Also, as I note in the linked thread, the video shows extremely questionable application methods.

    See the DE FAQ: http://bedbuggers.com/faqde

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    I want to be clear that I don't think hatesbedbugs2009 is spamming us here.

    I just think that it's relevant to the discussion that a company appears to be marketing itself in this way.
