    The ingredient (d-limonene) which is mentioned as the 'bug killing' ingredient in Murphy's Oil Soap in another thread on this forum is actually the main component of citrus oil. I suspect that any household cleaning product with orange oil or lemon oil will kill bed bugs on contact.

    I have tried Greased Lightning Orange Blast and it works. I've killed three bugs with it so far; one bug even seemed to dissolve somewhat. Ewww.

    Greased Lightning is not flammable; I held a flame to a few drops of it in my kitchen sink. It doesn't seem to damage or stain fabric either. One squirt will kill nymphs, adults may require 2 squirts.

I have a bottle doesn't mean I am going to use it as a spot treatment... my husband only uses this stuff out side... cause it causes throat irritation to me and the kids..The bottle also says consulate manufacture 's recommendations... so call the company the # is on the bottle... it also says ~~~ KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN I think that means PETS TOO~~~There are A LOT of surfaces you cant use this product on...like Paint ,varnished or acrylic surfaces, leather, aluminum, Plain, anodized,or alloy, laminated or clear coated surfaces stain resistant carpet and counter tops...~That was right off the bottle...~

    Someone in another thread stated that they're using the following products:

    1gal Bonide, 0.02% deltamethrin
    1.5lb Terro Ant dust, 0.05% deltamethrin
    32oz Spectrum Triazicide, 0.25% gamma-cyhalothrin
    1.5lb Bayer Ant, 0.1% Cyfluthrin (large granules)
    1lb Scotts Bug-B-Gone dust, 0.25% permethrin
    32oz JT Eaton BedBug Spray, 0.13% pyrethrin

    I think the Greased Lightning is less dangerous than these chemicals. It doesn't bother me, anyway.

    I really know what you r saying it is just that in my case I cant just use any thing and I have a lot of the products radially available that are on this site and Woman especially like ME and the situation I am in with 5 kids and Vulnerable state of mind that we can get in to ... need to be warned.. So be care full next time you post and keep in mind people who come in here can use this product and not have the warnings and kill someone or something... I know this product and it is also dangerous just like the formula above that you posted from the other thread....Especially in the state of mind we are all in while we are ALL in the fight of our lives.. and just cause it don't bother you don't mean you are not being affected by it.. Brother... ya hear me ... as a mother..

    Sure, GL kills on contact, but do do a lot of cheaper, milder products. The pyrethrins are for a longer term kill, which GL does not offer. BTW, I'm glad you've become safety conscious.

    It's a cigarette lighter, not quite a torch

    I found a scientific study online that said bed bugs die instantly at 122 degrees. (They also die at lower temps but it takes longer.) A flame brings them up to 122 rather quickly!
