Heat Vs Chemicals

Bed bugs are on the rise because they’re are becoming resistant to the pesticides used to kill them. Changes in pest control around the country have resulted in a situation where some of the previous pesticides that had been effective have been removed from the market.

In many cases, if the job is not done properly the first time, the bedbugs return and continue to spread. The problem becomes more serious and expensive when you consider that female bed bugs can lay about 300 eggs in their lifetime once they’re inseminated. Bedbugs that feed regularly have a lifespan of 10 months, so we’re talking a lot of bed bugs laying a lot of eggs.

These are the standard techniques used in the attempt to remove and/or eliminate bed bugs:

Chemicals & Pesticides – Most bed bug chemical treatments are tedious and require multiple visits. Ongoing changes within the industry and the continued changes in allowed pesticide and insecticide use has meant that once-proven techniques are no longer viable. Besides, most of us would prefer safer, more eco-friendly alternatives that are less toxic.

Steaming & Fogging – Limited effectiveness since they may not reach into deep areas.

Aerosols – Few treatments can kill bed bugs at all stages. Aerosols are useless unless there are visible signs of bed bugs because these are contact insecticides and it serves no purpose if you can’t spray them directly on the bug.
