JT Eaton Oil Based BedBug Killer Spray Review

The JT Eaton 204-O1G is effective at erardicating bed bugs on contact, along with fleas, ticks, spiders and other insects. The product comes ready to use in a 1-gallon container with a sprayer. Simply spray on the infected area, and the bedbugs will begin to die off.

The active ingredients is Deltamethrin (0.03-percent), which effectively kills bedbugs and other insects. However, deltamethrin, also known as DEET, can be irritating to humans, pets, and pregnant women.

Pyrethrins and piperonyl butoxide (PBO) are two common ingredients in bed bug pesticides. Pyrethrins are botanical insecticides derived from chrysanthemum flowers, while PBO is a synthetic chemical that enhances the toxicity of pyrethrins. These pesticides can be effective at killing bed bugs, but they can also pose health risks to humans and pets.

In some people, exposure to pyrethrins and PBO can cause allergic reactions, such as skin rash, hives, and difficulty breathing. These pesticides can also irritate the eyes, nose, and throat. In rare cases, exposure to pyrethrins and PBO can lead to more serious health problems, such as seizures, coma, and death.

And, while it’s unfortunate, I was not able to find any YouTube videos or reviews about this product.

JT Eaton Oil Based Bedbug Spray Review Review


  • Pyrethrin and piperonyl butoxide based formula, effective for killing typical parasites like bedbugs and lice.
  • Very effective contact killer.
  • While there may be no residual benefit with a single application, customers who have sprayed the product several consecutive days have noticed great results.
  • Works on more than just bedbugs, including insects and arachnids.


  • Product may have a strong, off-putting odor.
  • Product is mainly a contact killer, not a residual, thus making its 6 pound weight potentially problematic for the elderly and mobile-challenged or just inconvenient in general.
  • Product may harm vinyl or laminate flooring and furniture, causing it to peel back or bubble up.
  • It may not be a total solution in itself, according to customers.
  • JT Eaton’s staff have demonstrated a propensity for rudeness and ignorance, according to one customer’s report.

Overall, JT Eaton Oil Based Bedbug Spray is a relatively safe and effective contact killer for eliminating bed bugs and mites. It is relatively non-toxic, being pyrethrin-based. However, it is important to note that this spray may not be effective against all bed bug infestations, and you may not appreciate its oil base residue after treatment.

Additional Tips for Using JT Eaton Oil Based Bed Bug Spray

If you are considering using a pyrethrin PBO-based bed bug pesticide, it is important to read the label carefully and follow the instructions exactly. You should also avoid using these pesticides in areas where children and pets are likely to be exposed.

Practice safety-first when using pyrethrin PBO-based bed bug pesticides:

  • Wear gloves, long sleeves, and pants when applying the pesticide.
  • Avoid breathing in the mist or fumes from the pesticide.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly after applying the pesticide.
  • Keep the pesticide out of reach of children and pets.

If you have any concerns about the safety of pyrethrin PBO-based bed bug pesticides, you should talk to your doctor or a pest control professional.

Overall, JT Eaton’s Oil Based Bed Bug Spray gets a good rating from Amazon customers (4.5/5 stars). They also have a ton of other products. However, because of the former complaints of customers and the fact the product is oil-based, I would just avoid it myself, considering there’s safer alternatives.

Why spend $50 on an incomplete “solution” when you’ll still have to spend more?
