Database of pesticides to get rid of bed bugs

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), has created a new database listing all registered pesticides that can help get rid of bed bugs. This is because people are turning to pesticides to rid their homes of the bugs.

The new database will help consumers choose an effective and safe bed bug product. EPA officials say, though, that homeowners will need to also reduce clutter, cover mattresses, and vacuum in order to help keep bed bugs away.

EPA has more than 300 different products registered to use against bed bugs.

Access the database at http://www.epa.gov/bedbugs/productsearch, or you can get tips about preventing bed bug infestations at http://www.epa.gov/bedbugs/.
