Cedar oil will kill bed bugs & fleas on contact, but it is a contact killer. The trick is getting the product in direct contact with bed bugs that are hidden in inaccessible places.
I don't believe it will work to eliminate bites... a hungry bed bug will still bite you after it dries.
It might have some repellent action, but I think it is short term.
I spray it on my skin to repel mosquito's in the evening when I exercise our dogs as an alternative to a DEET based spray.
I like the product, but it does not seem to have much residual effect. I had to reapply it frequently on my dogs to controls fleas.
I think it can be useful as a flushing agent & it is the only product (I'm aware of) that is actually labeled for bed bugs that claims to be safe to apply directly to the skin of humans & pets.
So, if you got bed bug bites, try these remedies
- Lemon juice: Take a cotton ball and dip it in lemon juice. Dab it on the bed bugs bites. Wait for several minutes then wash these areas. Follow this solution for several times a day.
REMEMBER: Don’t go out in the sun for a couple of hours after taking this tip because lemon juice can make your skin vulnerable to sunburn.
- Ice cubes: it can calm the swelling.
- Cucumber: Take a piece of cucumber slice or peel and place it on the bed bug bites.
Wait for 10 to 15 minutes.
If you aren’t satisfied with the results, repeat this tip again.
Note: You should cool the pieces in the refrigerator before placing it on the affected area for the best effects.
