In-depth Comparison

In here we are going to taike a look at the details of these products to see how they compare against each other. Crossfire comes in both aerosol and pump spray forms, while Temprid is only available as an aerosol product. Both has been around for many years and can be found in most stores that sell bug spray.

The active ingredients are different between them with Crossfire containing Pyrethrins which interacts with GABA receptors on neurons to cause paralysis among insects but also affect mammals (including humans) by being neurotoxic. A second ingredient known as piperonyl butoxide helps enhance this effect when paired together cross-functionally because it aids in the penetration of pyrethrin into insect exoskeletons by decreasing lipid content and making it more hydrophobic.

Temprid is used to kill or repel bugs, termites, roaches, ticks, spiders and other pests with a chemical compound known as cypermethrin; which belongs to a class of synthetic chemicals called cyclopropenes that have pest-controlling properties. Cypermethrin disrupts an animal’s nervous system by blocking nerve signals in insects but not mammals because they do not operate on GABA receptors like Pyrethroids do.

Short Review of Temprid

Temprid Ready Spray is a liquid-based product that can be sprayed around your home and directly on the bed bugs. It kills them by attacking their respiratory system, which leads to death within 24 hours of use. The spray will kill any other insect it comes into contact with as well, so you should avoid spraying plants or animals when applying this product.

Temprid Ready Spray does not work in conjunction with other pesticides; instead, it replaces them for up to three months at a time without having to reapply again during that period. This makes it an easier choice than Crossfire because there are no additional steps required after treating the area where the bed bugs lie dormant or hiding from cross fire dry fogger treatment – just wait two hours before venturing into the treated area and then enjoy a bed bug-free sleep.

Temprid is more expensive than Crossfire but it also lasts three times longer without reapplication, so you’ll save money in the long term with this product. It’s an excellent choice for those who are looking to get rid of their infestation quickly as well because it kills them on contact instead.

The downside to Temprid Ready Spray is that residents must take caution when using it by spraying only where necessary or they can spread bugs throughout their entire home if not careful – any surface sprayed will need to be completely sealed off and airtight during treatment while plants should always be avoided since they could die from exposure.

Short Review of Crossfire

Crossfire ready to use liquids based spray are also an option but they’re not as fast acting and can cause some discomfort to humans, so be sure you read the label before use. Crossfire is formulated to kill parathyroid resistant bed bug strains at all life stages, including eggs. Formulated with the active ingredient, beta cyfluthrin. It is a very low odor, non-staining product.

Approved For direct application onto mattresses, so you can use that anical insecticides, such as Temprid. Mixing Ratio of this product is 13 oz bottle makes 1 gallon of finished product. Can take up to two weeks before they’re effective. In addition, botanical products are not sprayed on surfaces like bedframes or nightstands which can be ideal hiding places for bedbugs.
