Dust Mites

Dust mites cause terrible allergies and great suffering. Greenbug controls dust mites in chronic situations (everyday levels that fluctuate in dust mite populations) and Greenbug also controls acute situations (an infestation of Dust Mites).

Treatment for chronic Dust Mites:

Materials needed:

Greenbug Ready to Use or

Greenbug Concentrate, properly diluted

  1. Wash your sheets and other linens using the hottest possible settings in the washer and dryer. Add ¼ cup of Greenbug Ready to Use or properly diluted Greenbug Concentrate to the fabric softener cycle.  Wash your sheets at least once a week and the remaining linens (comforter, bedspread, etc.) at least once a month.
  2. When making the bed with clean sheets, lightly spray Greenbug Ready to Use or properly diluted Greenbug Concentrate. Spray on the mattress, box springs, headboards, dust ruffles, pillows, rugs, upholstery, etc. using a light misting. 
  3. Spray other items once a month using Greenbug Ready to Use or properly diluted Greenbug Concentrate. Greenbug does not stain or leave a residue and will dry completely clear.
  4. Wash pajamas using Add ¼ cup of Greenbug Ready to Use or properly diluted Greenbug Concentrate to the fabric softener cycle. It also helps to bathe before bed.

    Treatment for acute Dust Mite situations: 

    Materials needed:

    Greenbug Fogger Bundle (either purchased or rented fogger)

    Greenbug for People/Pets using 1 quart per 1000 square feet of treated area

    Greenbug Ready to Use or Greenbug Concentrate

    Greenbug Goggles for each person performing fogging

    Greenbug Respirator for each person performing fogging

    Vacuum Cleaner

    1. Vacuum entire area thoroughly. Vacuum the surfaces of bedding, upholstered furniture, drapes and rugs as possible.
    2. Wash linens and bedding using the hottest possible settings in the washer and dryer. Add ¼ cup of Greenbug Ready to Use or properly diluted Greenbug Concentrate to the fabric softener cycle. 
    3. Prior to treatment, turn off all pilot lights. Turn off smoke alarms and alert security system monitoring companies as the fog can trigger smoke alarms.  Remove all animals/pets and plants from areas to be fogged.
    4. Fog the area using the Greenbug Fogger bundle and Greenbug for People/Pets (1 quart per 1000 square feet of coverage) using the smallest droplet setting on the fogger. You must use a respirator (not face mask) and goggles.    
    5. Beginning at the far side of each room, aim the fogger directly at all potential harbor spots (draperies, carpeting, furniture, mattresses, box springs, rugs, curtains, stuffed animals, pillows, etc.) Make sure the mist falls evenly and penetrates thoroughly. Pry fabric apart, blast up under and into upholstered furniture, fog all nooks and crannies as you move your way out of the room.
    6. Take out the filter to the HVAC unit. Turn the system to ‘Fan’ and ‘On’ for air circulation.  Direct the fogger at the intake vent.  As soon as fog comes out of all vents, the duct work treatment is complete and you may turn off the HVAC fan.
    7. Allow the fog to penetrate a minimum of 4 hours. Upon returning, wear the respirator and goggles if any fog remains. Air out the areas that have been fogged by opening windows, using fans, and/or by running the HVAC to circulate the air.  Clean the room as usual and inhabit immediately after the fog has dissipated.
    8. After treatment, lightly spray the vacuum hose and canister with Greenbug for People/Pets to control any dust mites within the vacuum cleaner.
