Back in January of 2014, there was a bed bug study conducted by the University of Kentucky.

They took 10 strains of bed bugs from across the nation and exposed them to dry residues of Temprid SC and Transport GHP.

On my first read, I thought this study was a product face-off, which one is better.  I since then, have realized the researchers had something else in mind.

Their goal was to achieve an 80% mortality rate, they wanted some survivors. So they had to limit the time the bed bugs were exposed to the products. Reason being, they wanted to monitor the mortality rate of each strain's offspring.
