- Example: In a head-to-head competition at the University of British Columbia with the leading national brand for bedbug eradication, DX13™ outperformed the other product by 36% over a 10 hour period and by 50% over a 24 hour period
DX13 is great for use everywhere. it can be applied to mattresses, box springs, headboards, dressers, pillows, baseboards and under carpets. DX13 is an effective treatment for long-term bed bug management.
After tests and studies performed by the University of British Columbia, DX13 was found to be significantly more effective than other dusts. Mattresses treated with DX13 were especially effective against bed bugs. Along with direct contact, the horizontal transfer of DX13 from exposed bed bugs also has a great effect. Once sprayed, DX13 continues to work for at least 21 days. Bigger is not better. The smaller particles showed higher effectiveness and caused greater weight loss in bugs than larger particles.
