Hi I’m back!
Would like to know why using the Hot Shot would make things worse?
I have since returned it and ordered via on line Fossil Shell Dust and Bed Bug Patrol.
What are your thoughts in regard to these products?
Probably should have passed this by you first. Oh Well!
Hot shot spray or fogger?
Spray: it's as good as your application technique and strategy and subject to the limitations of all liquids.
Fogger: here's a quote form the Army IPM Guide
> ULV, aerosols, and foggers. Insecticides currently labeled for ULV, aerosols and foggers have little or no residual effects on bed bugs. Most will seldom penetrate cryptic bed bug harborages. If directly injected into harborages, these products may stimulate some of the bed bugs to become active and move out into the open, allowing them to be seen by inspectors. Otherwise, bed bugs are seldom killed, even by prolonged or repeated exposure to such products.
The new products you named have been discussed before. The liquid is basically a cleanser. "Fossil Shell Powder" is also known as "diatomaceous earth", or "DE" in these parts.
