    We bought a tank of temprid from an exterminator place near out house. We spent decent amount of money on it too because she said she needed to add gentrol to it and then we do the temprid again in 2 weeks. since nothing else we've done has worked for our bed bug issue we thought we'd try it. The day after we bombed me and my roommate found over a dozen out in the open, for the most part, in a weird time of the day for them to be out. They were weird and lethargic so we thought it was because of the pesticide we had used. When we squished them they had this dark weird tar like liquid coming out of them and they were so much easier to squish then they usually are. I don't know if the pesticide takes time or if we're just being pessamistic but I got bit up all on my side last night so I'm still not feeling too good about if it worked or not. So does anyone have any experience with this chemical for bed bugs?

    I've used Temprid, but in my situation there's no getting rid of them because I've discovered it's a problem with my apartment building. So I'm using it to keep then at bay until I move in a month. Anyway, it was provided to me by my PCO that has been a great help during this process when we both realized why treatments would seem to work for a month and then resurface. We spray everywhere every few days, and from what I can tell it has made an impact. Most of the ones I find now are dead. I believe that once it dries it can take up to a week to kill them? I'm not an exoert, I just seem to remember reading that. Most residuals don't seem to kill immediately after they're dry.

    Also the black tar like substance you described is digested blood from previous feedings...ick, right?

    We've used it twice now and seem to have made a difference, only finding dead bugs or a few weeks ago a non functioning one!

    I am not a pro. As in, NOT a pro.

    But, you bombed? With foggers? Please don't do that again if you did....... and I know when I used Temprid SC (no Gentrol) there were more bugs in the open for a day or so, they were all excited by the poison or something. Then there were less.

    Not a pro here. Call me Jon Snow...... for I know nothing, except what I've experienced.

    My PCO has been using temprid for my apartment. I had my first treatment two weeks ago and will be having my second treatment on Wednesday. After the first treatment I found many dead ones (yay!) and the live ones numbers certainly decreased by a lot. It's been four days since I've seen a live one. So far in my experience temprid seems to be helping!
