Question and answer
What are some pesticides for bed bug?
Non-chemical treatments Wash and dry bedding and clothing at high temperatures to kill bed bugs. Heat infested articles and/or areas through to at least 113 ºF (45 ºC) for 1 hour. [ The higher the temperature, the shorter the time needed to kill bed bugs at all life stages. Cold treatments (below 0 ºF (-19 ºC) for at least 4 days) can eliminate some infestations. Again, the cooler the temperature, the less time needed to kill bed bugs. Use mattress, box spring, and pillow encasements to trap bed bugs and help detect infestations. Chemical treatments Pesticides are one
component of a comprehensive strategy for controlling bed bugs. Currently, there are over 300 products registered by EPA for use against bed bugs – the vast majority of which can be used by consumers. Several classes of chemicals are utilized in these products - each class share a similar mode of action, or way in which the chemical affects the biological functions of a bed bug. To help you find a product, EPA has developed a Bed Bug Product Search tool to help you find a product that meets your needs. If you find that a particular chemical treatment seems to be ineffective, please read When Treatments Don’t Work before reapplying or trying a different product. You may want to consult a pest management professional to inspect your residence and, if needed, apply approved pesticides to treat any infestation. For assistance with choosing a pesticide registered for consumer use, you may also check with the Cooperative Extension Service office in your area. ]

DDT is the most effective pesticide to exterminate bed bugs, but due to its high toxicity it has been banned by the EPA. Many believe that the recent bed bug crisis is due to its banning.

Grammatically, "grapple" is the infinitive, the basic form of a verb meaning to struggle, in or as if in wrestling. "Grappling" is the present participle of that verb. A GRAPPLE (noun) can also mean "an iron shaft with claws at one end, usually thrown by a rope and used for grasping and holding, especially one for drawing and holding an enemy ship alongside." "Grappling" would then be the present participle, the act of employing a grapple.
