We, like so many other bed bug information outlets, have said it for some time. There is no such thing as a quick over the counter solution to a bed bug infestation. Federal regulators are now filing deceptive advertising claims against two companies marketing what they purport to be anti-bed bug products.
The claims against the companies making Rest Easy and Best Yet! bed bug sprays suggest that the product’s ingredients -which include cinnamon, lemongrass and cedar oil – will have no effect on bed bugs at all. (Best Yet! also claims to treat head lice, which the FDA also says is false.)
The news item from Huffington Post tells us that these RMB Group LLC who are responsible for Rest Easy have already settled, agreeing to not claim that their’s or any pesticide kills, repels, or creates a barrier against bed bugs.
This is all in line with what experts have said about bed bug infestations forever. The only way to handle them is with a full on extermination and, even then, there is a chance of a return. If what you have is bed bugs no spray can on the market is going to help you handle them. You need professionals.
