Pesticide Efficacy Kit

Lab-in-a-Bag helps you select the most effective insecticides and pest control method, especially for bed bug treatment.

Easy Pest Control Efficiency Testing

Between species, strains and infestations, pesticide efficacy can vary considerably. Lab-in-A-Bag was developed to provide rapid testing and insight in the field, helping pest control managers choose the best insecticide to kill bed bugs and other pests.

Every Pest Infestation is Different

No two bed bug infestations are identical in their susceptibility to insecticides. Studies have found tremendous variation in effectiveness, even using different formulations of the same compound across different substrates (fabric, wood, etc.) Lab-in-a-Bag helps identify which products are most effective against a particular infestation.
