Nobugsonme on "DE applied directly on mattress?!"

by Nobugsonme @ Got Bed Bugs? Bedbugger Forums Topic: DE applied directly on mattress?!

Also, for everyone's reference, these are some relevant sections of the forum rules (as of September 2012):

Netiquette and community customs

Civility

Please do be civil to others. Attacking ideas is okay, attacking people is not. It should be obvious that calling others names is not permitted.

Giving Advice

Please do not give advice on anything you're not qualified to give advice about. This is tricky, in terms of rules, because to some degree, you have to regulate yourself.

Most consumers -- even those who have self-treated their homes -- should not be giving advice on which pesticides to buy and how to use them, for example, telling people to buy DE or how to apply DE. If we have a FAQ on it (like DE or steam), please direct people to those. If you don't agree with those FAQs or think something should be added, then please make a suggestion about that. Remember there are qualified experts here who may be willing to answer questions about pesticides and you can direct users to them.

Nobugsonme on "DE applied directly on mattress?!"

by Nobugsonme @ Got Bed Bugs? Bedbugger Forums Topic: DE applied directly on mattress?!

falconbb and Alice234,

Please read the FAQ on DE which gives reasonable advice on using DE, including both the positive aspects and cautions about doing so safely and effectively.

Unlike advice you get from most users here, it contains links to sources of information and quotes from experts.

Note that even food grade DE can irritate the skin (it has a drying effect), but some products also contain added residual pesticides which may also have a negative effect on skin. Drying skin can cause itching.

As such, even if the label says it's okay, I don't think putting DE on your mattress is a good idea since it is likely to be in contact with skin. More to the point, note that David says it also isn't likely to help.

Inhaling the stuff is also not good so avoid situations where it might be kicked up and inhaled.

Yes, some people can do some things with DE and experience no problems, but the same use may cause problems for others (either based on how heavy it is applied, exact site of application, or health issues present in the individual, detected or not).

So saying "I did this and it is fine" doesn't mean others will also be fine if they follow your advice.

I ask Alice234, itneverends, and others to stick to describing what you did but please don't try and encourage others to follow your method or try to give instructions.

For example, Alice234, are you really in a position to tell others to just use a dust mask when experts recommend a respirator mask? (We got this advice from KillerQueen/aka John Furman of Boot-a-Pest, a NY pest control firm.)

Most of us here, myself included, are not qualified to give DIY bed bug treatment advice, and leave it to experts who are (and will, it turns out), or reference their advice where possible. If you have an expert source for your advice, please point us to it.

Actually that forum was not deleted, I just need to get hooked on phonics. It's here http://bedbugger.com/forum/topic/bb-do-it-yourselfers

Yes, you guessed right that there's no conspiracy. You can find your own posts by looking in your profile (link in right sidebar).

The forum's Terms and Conditions of Use do give me the right to delete anything for any reason, but I almost never do delete things, even when I think advice is not quite right.

Longtime users will recall instances where I don't even delete posts which insult me directly, as has happened on more than one occasion. Most forum hosts can't say that (but maybe they have the right idea).

As for DE, you have to admit that if the site were "anti-DE", we would not have a FAQ explaining how to use DE. So consider that the recommendations you're getting from oldtimers and experts are a lot more nuanced than "don't use DE".

Hi,

Hmmm, care to read the sections of my book published in 2009 that explains how to deal with a light infestation of bedbugs using DE?

As I said I use DE all the time but that does not make me blasay about working with it safely.

Sorry if you read that as sarcastic please revisit the post and understand that as you are not the first not the last to claim a conspiracy I offer that advice as something you can do to make a change because remaining here and being rude to people hardly helps those who come here for assistance.

For the record I hate the general pest industry as most of the technicians barely know what they are doing so to accuse me as part of that is insulting and shows that you are not spending the time to understand those you are debating with.

You have a right within the AUP to express an opinion on a subject but please refrain from making accusations against individuals, especially when yet unlike you stay here to help others.

itneverends on "DE applied directly on mattress?!"

by itneverends @ Got Bed Bugs? Bedbugger Forums Topic: DE applied directly on mattress?!

I will say my post favorably paints DE as an anti bedbug agent, but I did not encourage it's exclusive use as nobugsonme insinuates. I praise it because my specific results are remarkable as I live in a highly cluttered apartment, my adjacent neighbors are also infected, my landlord is highly useless, and the health department will not bother further with me until November,, and I have absolutely zero disposable income. For DE alone to have such a drastic effect in so little time is remarkable, so I remarked on it. And because my results are so remarkable, I highly recommend the use of DE, especially in situations such as mine, where the only other recourse would be a sin of sloth.

Clearly, if you can afford professional treatment and/or it is available to you, it is a superior choice than self treatment, including DE.

If you happen to have a respirator use it. If you can get one, do it. If you can't, you might react while applying it, but to be fair to the product I have not found one silicosis related death or permanent disorder related to its use. Have a little care, of course.

No one is really wrong here, it's just a question of how desperate you are. Before my awesome results, I was on the brink. If a PCO HAD volunteered to eradicate my pests for the 16 bucks I paid for DE, I'd be ecstatic. DE is steadily resolving my issue, so I am merely pleased. Good is no one is dead except about 275 bedbugs (so far) and I call that a win.

SWinston I don't disagree on any particular point except this: the instructions for applying DE are quite simple, while lawnmower engines aren't as simple to a layman. By saying "a pro will be able to apply this talcum like subject better than you will" is insulting to me. You're saying I can't follow the basic instructions: "Dust lightly to affected areas"

But what insults me more its telling me this talcum like substance is gonna give me silicosis after brief contact.

I don't think I've corresponded with you before. Let's get your opinion: I am slaughtering bed bugs left and right with my system, being unable to get further assistance. Despite a highly cluttered house, an almost completely stationary mother in law on my couch, and infected adjacent neighbors, I have cut my bite rate by two thirds in about a week or so. I did all of this with one mattress cover and 10 lbs of DE (actually I still have a bunch)

Scientifically speaking, I have been moderately successful, wouldn't you say? Because I'm getting told to sit down and shut up everytime I bring it up. ON A FORUM DEDICATED TO THE VERY SUBJECT that I am waxing intellectual on, no less.

BuggerOffBBs on "DE applied directly on mattress?!"

im sorry falconbb that this became such a tangent beyond your original question. i dont have that much weight in these forums as i am simply just like you.... going through it. but i dont think that this is the general spirit of the forum from my time on here. Yet it is the nature in opinion and tactics that surround the conversation. I personally from working with DE would not apply it to a mattress based on it ability to spread on fabric that will contract with movement giving the potential for it to become airborn, but i think it is on the lower level of poisons you could choose to apply yourself. DE will stay airborne for a while. first time i put it down, i could taste it even after i was out for a few hours after i put it down. i would be cautious if you put it down in excess, or are constantly applying. if you feel you can "taste it" or smell it or get short winded when you lye down, i would beat the mattress out a bit before putting on new sheets, leave for a while and go for a nice long walk, come back, and put new sheets on. i feel there is not much you can do once it is applied to a mattress. you have to respect the nature of its application,, and in probably so many cases, that comes down to the experience with putting it down in the first place. i read up on it extensively before i started using it. it is a great tool. even with a lot of informed knowledge, i still didnt personally know exactly what to do with it when it came to application. if you feel you may have over applied, then the vac is a good method to get a lighter more even distribution. solely my experience. no expert on the health hazzards

bed-bugscouk on "DE applied directly on mattress?!"

by bed-bugscouk @ Got Bed Bugs? Bedbugger Forums Topic: DE applied directly on mattress?!

Hi,

There is no need nor benefit to be obtained by applying DE to a mattress.

DE is in-effect a residual contact killer, it kills through dehydration.

When using it the first question you should ask your self is will bedbugs come into contact with it here? If the answer is no don't apply it.

At the end of the day the absolute safest way to do something is to do nothing. Yes DE is generally considered safe when apply correctly and using personal protective equipment but is even safer when not used.

Sadly many retail websites focus on commerce rather than education as as such there are more misinformation sites out there than good ones.

Alicew234 is entirely accurate, especially when she stresses FOOD GRADE DE. Do not use the pool cleaner stuff, it'll kill you but NOT THE BUGS. After self treating with DE my bite rate is dramatically reduced. This will not kill all the bugs but is the only treatment option I can afford. I estimate after 3 months all will be dead, but the forum where I posted my results appears to have been deleted. Conspiracy? Maybe.
BTW: Do NOT apply it where where it will have prolonged contact with your skin. It reacts the same way as it does with the bugs, not dangerous but it is a weak irritant and you'll come out with dry chaffed skin. Dust the sides and bottom of your mattress and box spring and you are gold.
And don't expect eradication overnight, or even in a month's time. Keep it dry and reapply after clean up, which you need not do often as DE has no shelf life.
And the hippies are wrong. Eating it or mixing it into your drink is dumb; you can get better results with ACTUAL fiber additives, which have real nutritional value.
EDIT: I should mention I have a bb cover on my mattress, so they MUST climb up the sides to get at me. Also, my 2 year old got into it, ate some and played in it. I contacted poison control, who instructed me to give her a bath and some water. I did, and all is well :)

I encourage anyone to find the sentence in here where I encourage anyone to self treat only with DE. Actually I state the opposite in a later post where I say that if a better way is available to you, take it. I covered the skin irritation and all. You guys even read it? Hell, I even advised to use the stupid respirator.

Hi itneverends,

When I asked if you had read my book it was not to suggest that you went out and bought it.

It is not uncommon for me to suggest something to see what the response is. If the person comes back with something polite and honest I will often PM them to get the details to send them a copy. As for it being out of date, the DE section is actually one of the few areas that has not changed in the slightest, the information is still accurate as non of the technology surrounding DE has changed int he last 10 years let alone the last four.

Now you have chosen again to come back as being rude and insulting. That I can assure you says a lot more about you than me.

I am here to help people, to conduct ID's and offer sensible advise. I try to contribute more than I take out from the group as that is good karma. I have also held public information meetings (at my own expense) in both the UK and US.

You appear to be here to argue, insinuate and insult people and that is hardly helpful to those who are also here to get help.

From time to time we see people who come to the forum to behave like this and thankfully they are generally short lived as others see through how they are behaving and stop interacting with them. The only thing they achieve is to make those with experience to share less willing to do so until they are gone.

I wish you ever success in resolving your problem and will ask you to refrain from trying to engage me in discussion and to certainly stop with the insults (you have already been asked enough times).

itneverends,

I am sorry you've had bed bugs so long and that the local officials aren't helping with your landlord.

However, you're not reading others' posts carefully, which is what you're accusing us of. Please point out exactly where you see me saying you encouraged DE's "exclusive use" above. I did not "insinuate that you encouraged its exclusive use" here. In fact, if you read my actual post above again, I separated my comments to various people, most of what I say about DE is directed at Alice, and my comments to you are mostly about your conspiracy comment.

You did, however, as I did note, encourage people to use it and attempt to give directions on its use. And this is what I am asking you not to do.

I will ask again that you stick to describing your own experience and don't try to give treatment advice to others. The site is open to various viewpoints but it's my strong feeling that people should not be giving advice which conflicts with what experts suggest.

Note that I didn't accuse you of that, but I did point it out in Alice's post.

You are welcome to participate here, itneverends, and describing what you did is fine. But you should probably stop accusing me of doing things I haven't done. (Quoted above is one example; suggesting there might be a conspiracy silencing your DE comments is another.)

My feelings aren't hurt, but the facts do matter.

Also, read the forum rules. Name-calling and other uncivil behavior is not allowed. I deleted insults you slung at David above. In one case, a whole paragraph. In future, entire posts may be deleted, because it isn't always convenient to line edit out someone's insults.

Let's all be civil, okay?

Are There Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) In Your Mattress?

What Are VOCs? Volatile organic compounds are chemicals that are used, in the manufacturing process, of many items found in our homes. The term “volatile” means that these are chemicals that can easily get into the air that you breathe each day and end up inside of your body. “Organic” means that they are carbon-based.

Nobugsonme on "DE applied directly on mattress?!"

by Nobugsonme @ Got Bed Bugs? Bedbugger Forums Topic: DE applied directly on mattress?!

itneverends - 5 hours ago  » 
Nobugsonme the insinuation I was addressing with you is as follows:

" I ask Alice234, itneverends, and others to stick to describing what you did but please don't try and encourage others to follow your method or try to give instructions."

And yet here's what you said,

itneverends - 8 hours ago »
I will say my post favorably paints DE as an anti bedbug agent, but I did not encourage it's exclusive use as nobugsonme insinuates.

[emphasis added]

And like I have already said, itneverends, I never said (or insinsuated) that you encouraged its exclusive use.

Have another look.

My point was there's a difference between describing what you did (which is fine), and giving others treatment instructions (which isn't encouraged unless you're qualified).

I posted my success story because the results are relevant to the OP's question. I cautioned with very same instructions the "old timers" on this site cautioned with.

And perhaps you can point to where I disagreed with either of those things?

Please read my actual post again and note what was said to you vs. what was said to Alice, and I expect you will find you don't actually have much argument with me.

Re: your comments about the FAQ on DE: it is compiled from information from people who know more about DE than I do. That's why I cite sources.

Wikipedia is used only as a source for the chemical composition of the material.

but Idid note in your FAQ you're kind enough to link to your sponsored site to buy one, which I think what this is all about. This is a sponsored forum, and for some reason your sponsor doesn't carry DE. Maybe they should? Consider contacting them and asking, I would.

You seem to be insinuating something again, itneverends.

It doesn't make logical sense that I am running ads for a respirator mask recommended by a site expert in a FAQ, and not more prominent ads for DE, if I am just out to make money, does it?

The site does not make more money by suggesting people try and use a professional, and if they must self-treat, do so with caution.

The best way to make money would be for me to tell everyone to self-treat with X product, and slap an ad for it on every single page of the site. In fact, I turn away advertisers with miracle sprays, dusts, electronic gadgets, and so on every week of the year, unless they can prove the efficacy of their product, or site users have spoken of its usefulness. And even then, I turn away those with advertising claims which are over-the-top, as most are.

And actually, the DE ads in the FAQ have now been updated. There weren't any, as you noted, because products available have shifted so frequently and it needed to be updated, and has now been. (Along with adding more navigation, which I think readers will find an improvement.)

It should be clear I have no issue with people using DE in safe and effective manners, and assuming they're not interfering with current or future professional treatment.

If by "sponsored forum" you are implying that there is some company behind this forum, this is incorrect. If you're simply noting that we run ads, yes we do.

I run this site, as someone who had bed bugs, and have been doing so for almost seven years. The site wouldn't exist if it did not bring in some income to help
with operating costs (including my time). It takes a lot of work and time. That said, as the disclosure policy notes, the affiliate ads (in other words, at this time, all ads except for those marked as being from media.net and Google) are for products experts and users here have recommended, or which I have personally found useful.

We could make a lot more money advertising "just anything," and we don't.

If you have questions about or issues with the ads here, please first read the disclosure policy and note I am very open to your input and contact me directly to discuss further.

Yes, I was pretty rude to "Professor" David. I am not sorry, he was pompous and flippant and not in the least helpful, and he offended me. I came to post my success story, and I have. After all the bugs are gone and I have more definitive results I may return and post.

I have no issue with you participating here.

I have repeatedly noted that it is 100% fine for you to describe your own experiences with DE here. I hope you'll continue to do that. I'm curious which kind of DE you used and how long it took to knock out 300+ bed bugs you mentioned in another thread, using just DE.

However, please read the forum rules. Uncivility, including name calling, isn't permitted.

If you feel someone else has been uncivil to you (or to someone else for that matter), rather than responding, please click "report this post" next to the post (while logged in) to file a complaint and I will look into it.

I hope this clarifies things!

I AM BROKE, keep up. Also, I don't think I've been rude to anyone but you, and you deserve it. You didn't mention the title, so I can't even pirate a desk reference.

Nobugsonme, if I hurt your feelings, let me know and I will apologise. Same for whomever else I may have insulted.

And you're not sorry for being sarcastic, in the same sentence you also invited my to take my OP opinions elsewhere. Now you're backpedaling. You recommended I take my "gospel" to my own site, you flippant child.

I commend you for sticking around to help us simpletons, but you could have a little compassion while you're at it. Our lives kinda suck right now.

But we digress from the original concept.
Will DE kill bed bugs, yes when placed in areas that they will spend some time and pick it up.
Is it "safe" ? Pesticide containers give general instructions along with MSDS which supply additional safety information and additional health related information if indicated.
Now can everyone assemble a simple two stroke engine from a set of instructions? No.
While some people can others will have no clue,
Getting back to bed bugs this is where professionals come in to play in terms of putting the material in the right spots and in an appropriate (safe and efficacious) manner. And yes people trying to hawk their wares on the internet should not be relied on as a sole source of information. Nuff said, sleep tight!

Alicew234 on "DE applied directly on mattress?!"

by Alicew234 @ Got Bed Bugs? Bedbugger Forums Topic: DE applied directly on mattress?!

Food Grade DE is often used in organic gardening and I have never seen anyone recommend that an industrial grade respirator would be needed in order to apply it. I did note that this website says to use the respirator. I assume that because your experts are dealing with the problem worldwide, they are dealing with all different standards for how much crystalline silica can be in a food grade product and therefore are recommending an abundance of caution.

Food Grade DE is already in your food. It's used on organic vegetables. It is often used for pigs, cows, even dogs and cats to cure or prevent parasites. I agree you shouldn't breathe in great amounts of any dust but I am a little confused over your website's treatment of this tool. It is cheap. It is easy. It gives you something to do.

I bow to David's much, much greater experience in this area and I'm very willing to concede that DE on the bed isn't going to cure the bedbugs. But on the mattress, under the encasement and the sheet- it isn't going to hurt either and it gives people some peace of mind.

Oh well, I am out. My issue is steadily resolving itself and my questions have been answered elsewhere. Even after the edit it is clear who said what and who was a sarcastic (name calling deleted).

Nobugs, you asked where I got the DE. I posted the link once but you took that link down claiming it was an unauthorized ad. Ironically, I got it from the same site the OP on this thread did. I got the bag that does not have the EPA label.

Applied DE for the first time on 7/13/13. I now have a good sized bag of dead. I stopped counting at 130 or so, and the bag is easily twice as full now as it was then. I get bitten once or twice a night, max, OR at least those are the only ones that manifest sores. Before DE Day I was displaying 5 to 7 sores each morning.

Every upholstered surface in my home is covered with dust. I did not dust the top of our mattress, but it is in the carpet, the light sockets, the couch, etc. I dusted with an old foot powder bottle and worked it in with a broom.

I am not a PCO, I am an out of work freight handler, but I understand HAZMAT regulations and I wore a surgical mask I got free from a clinic. I am alive, clearly, and if silica wants to damage my respiratory system it's going to have to wait in line behind all the smoke.

itneverends on "DE applied directly on mattress?!"

by itneverends @ Got Bed Bugs? Bedbugger Forums Topic: DE applied directly on mattress?!

The link to the DE faq for this forum takes you to the NIOSH pocket guide for amorphous silica and gives HAZMAT codes for the material. I will copy it here:
" Personal Protection/Sanitation (See protection codes) Skin: No recommendation Eyes: No recommendation Wash skin: No recommendation Remove: No recommendation Change: No recommendation"

I did HAZMAT for UPS, so I can tell you what that means: No recommendation means there are no special precautions you must take for contact by the chemical in question. In short, wash out out with water as normal for any harmless contaminant. Also those respirator prerequisites start at "up to 30 mg/m(cubed) : (APF = 5)" which is a level only achievable in industrial settings. The threats it describes are eye irritation and pneumoconiosis, or to be more precise, silicosis, and it occurs after extended periods of time in said industrial settings. The faq also states an N or NR respirator if necessary. Why would I need a respirator that filters oils to scatter a dust? You're asking me to ear a motorcycle helmet while riding a tricycle, and I don't understand why.

And I also hate it when I ask why and the answer I get is "all my years of experience, that's why". That is not an answer, it's a deflection. I bring all these facts to the table and you day "your choice of you want to trust all these amateur opinions over my over my proportional one". This makes you seem evasive, and makes me wonder if these PCOs just don't want to see their$ 900 visits thin out when people start buying food grade DE instead. Why is every bit of imformation I post here wrong? Why do you quote wikipedia in your FAQ and then discredit wikipedia when I quote that they use out in toothpaste? It's dangers are less than that of secondhand smoke, but I bet everyone of us BB sufferers would start smoking today if it'd kill them. (I smoke like a chimney btw, and BBs don't mind one bit)

Many consumers today go out of their way to make planet-friendly purchasing decisions. They make efforts to conserve resources, recycle when possible, reduce waste, and reuse items that would otherwise go into landfills. With that in mind, many consumers are taking an interest in buying items that are "green" or earth-friendly — including mattresses. Unfortunately, at times and through no fault of their own, what they purchased isn't always as eco-friendly as what they intended it to be because of greenwashing. What is Greenwashing? Greenwashing is a term used to describe deceptive advertising practices used to inflate the environmental benefits of a company or the products its sells. Overall, it's a marketing strategy designed to convince — and mislead — the consumer interested in doing the right thing for the planet that they will be doing so by purchasing their product.

Alicew234 on "DE applied directly on mattress?!"

by Alicew234 @ Got Bed Bugs? Bedbugger Forums Topic: DE applied directly on mattress?!

DE is safe. It is added to foods. In the United States, it is regulated by OSHA so that all DE has limited crystalline silicia which can cause silicosis if you breathe it.

You want to use food grade DE. And you don't need to cake it on. It should look like you haven't dusted in a week when you are done.

It won't kill the bugs immediately. But it's a tool to use.

I made my own DE dispenser from a condiment squeeze bottle. I covered the opening with saran wrap that I rubber banded on. Then I poked holes in it . Then I put the top back on. Don't squeeze too hard and you'll get a nice powder spray.

Hold your breath or wear a dust mask. (This website says to wear an industrial grade respirator .) I don't do it when anyone's in the room and I give it a chance to settle before I go back in.

People worry that breathing DE can cause silicosis. AIrborne crystalline silica has been linked to silicosis in people who worked in that industry. But the crystalline silica levels are low in the DE sold in the US and very low in the food grade DE so I'm not worried. I used a cat litter with DE in it and I always held my breath when I filled the cat pan.

Like I say, it isn't going to work by itself. And if you are using a professional, run this by them so you aren't counteracting anything they are trying. But a nice thin coating of DE on the mattress and boxspring is going to be on every bed in my house from now on!

I posted my success story because the results are relevant to the OP's question. I cautioned with very same instructions the "old timers" on this site cautioned with. I do, now, after all my research and my own personal results, disagree with how terrifying you seem to purposefully make DE sound (note, by "you" I am addressing anyone who does it, including the ambiguity of the FAQ and the lack of explanation behind why NIOSH recommends respirators for silica mines and the correlation to why you justify needing one in a household setting. It is overkill, and in the case of bedbug sufferers, it does a disservice. Especially when the victim in question probably can't afford an industrial respirator. So I posted in my results that I used a surgical mask and lived tell the tale, but I still recommended the use of one (EDIT: this sentence was unclear. When I say I recommended the use of one, I was referring to respirators. Any schmoe can walk into a clinic and get a mask without even checking in, just by implying you MAY be contagious), if one is available, knowing that one probably isn't, but Idid note in your FAQ you're kind enough to link to your sponsored site to buy one, which I think what this is all about. This is a sponsored forum, and for some reason your sponsor doesn't carry DE. Maybe they should? Consider contacting them and asking, I would.

Yes, I was pretty rude to "Professor" David. I am not sorry, he was pompous and flippant and not in the least helpful, and he offended me. I came to post my success story, and I have. After all the bugs are gone and I have more definitive results I may return and post.
