Cuts the mustard. Use the spray first: all up under the beds and all around the house on the baseboards, even in the kitchen the baseboards under the cupboards. Puff the powder into the mattress beads. I also keep handy a spray bottle with a solution of shampoo or body wash (for the Laurel sulfate and citric acid) 3% to water with a teaspoon of salt to spray into large plastic canisters I use for hampers in all the bedrooms daily as well as to spray under the edge of the bathroom counters where the pesky little critters congregate in case others come in from visitors or from places you have visited.You will sleep again.
