Jan/san distributors can supply pesticides that help rid bed bugs, but it's important to do so cautiously. Reason being, many states have their own regulations regarding pesticides and if products supplied by a distributor are used improperly, the distributor could be held liable as a third party.

It is difficult to eradicate bed bugs completely, so distributors should never guarantee claims. To help identify suitable pesticides, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is currently compiling a list of products effective against bed bugs.

Distributors can supply products to help detect and monitor the situation without cause for concern, such as intercepting devices designed to catch bed bugs while they move to feed or niche products that help prevent cleaning personnel and building occupants from bringing the problem into their own homes.
