    Malathion or alternative means to fight bedbugs

    Malathion is an insecticide/pesticide which is said to be effective in fighting bedbugs. I see it is hard to come by in Moscow. Could you recommend a local alternative? If you suspected a bedbug problem by yourself here in Moscow, what insecticide/pesticide would you turn to in the first place?

    Get a good strong vacuum cleaner because no matter what you heard pesticides won't work.

    DDT is probably the most effective, but I'm not sure if they sell it in Russia (it is banned in some countries, dunno if Russia is one of them).

    Get DDT in and they will put them to sleep
