User Instruction Sheet
Is EcoRaider safe for use around infants, the elderly, and pets? Is it necessary to vacate either before or after treating with EcoRaider?
Yes! EcoRaider has minimum risk for using around all vertebrates – people, pets, fish and birds. There is no need to vacate either before or after using EcoRaider.
How many treatments do I need with EcoRaider?
If following the instructions properly, one can eradicate the issue with one treatment. But depending on the infestation level and how thorough the first treatment is done, most people might miss some areas or a bug harborage spot that may be unreachable. If there is still signs of bed bug activity after first treatment, you can do another treatment or in some case a second follow up might be necessary.
When is the best time during the day to do my treatment with EcoRaider?
You can do your treatment with EcoRaider any time during the day or night, because EcoRaider has a 2 week dry residual. But in order to maximize product performance, it is suggest that you do a treatment 2-3 hours before or as close as possible to your bed time. Bed bugs are most active during night, especially when you are sleeping and light is out. The best chance to eliminate them is when they are at peak activity and when your EcoRaider dry residual is at its most fresh state.
In any case, we suggest that you should follow the instructions and make sure all areas on the check list are sprayed. This will help to eradicate them faster and more thoroughly even before they come out for next meal.

Why my EcoRaider didn’t work for me?
If you follow the treatment method properly, you should see immediate result of eradicating bed bug infestations.
Your treatment may not work due to below possible reasons:
1) Treatment instruction is not followed properly, therefore bed bug or their eggs were not completely eliminated during your last treatment. This is possible because bed bugs lay eggs in cracks and crevices and you might have missed some spots. In this case, you will need to do a follow up treatment ( we recommend one treatment per week for at lest two to three weeks, for heavy infestations, more weekly treatment is recommended until there there is no longer bitten incidence.) You can find the treatment instructions under product support.
2) Bed bugs could be brought in again. It could be either by yourself, your building superintendent or visitors, or simply because your neighbors in the same floor also have infestations. In this case, not only you should continue treatment with EcoRaider, you should also recommend your neighbors to treat at the same time.
