When treating for bedbugs, there is not really anyway of treating "lightly". If you meant to say that you sprayed "less" or used a "weaker" concentration of pesticide in order to try and prevent them, then you might want to re-read our bedbug page on how to kill bedbugs.
Bedbug control involves intense inspection and also very thorough treatments in areas where bedbugs are found or suspected.
Spraying "more" or "less" along baseboards, under beds, etc, will not do much if the bedbugs are hiding inside the mattresses or under the baseboards.
Get a good flashlight, and start looking for bedbugs. Tear the mattresses apart, take everything out of dressers, closets, nightstands, etc, and then treat those areas AFTER you have inspected them. Again, spraying only a little here and there won't do much good and certainly won't do a good job of preventing bedbugs.
The products in the kit are designed to be mixed and used according to their directions. Using any less certainly will not give good results. I would recommend to use them the same way in areas where bedbugs are found or not found.
Hope this makes sense.
