Does Extermination Eliminate Bed Bugs Permanently?

Keep on reading to find out.

For one, when you treat bed bug infestation with heat treatment, every bed bug and its eggs will be killed in the quickest way possible, including those in a void on walls, crevices, and insulated areas.

However, there’s still a chance for a reinfestation without proper care since the heat treatment method doesn’t leave any residual effects, meaning it doesn’t make up for bounce-back bed bugs.

So, yes, you may still have reinfection after extermination. On the other hand, pesticides leave behind residues that can handle subsequent bed bug infestation.

Still, the pesticide application may not reach bed bugs or their eggs in hidden areas.

So how do you deal with a resurgence?

There are some steps to ensure you don’t get a reinfestation. Here’s what to do:

    • Place bed bug receptors under bed legs and sofas to verify and trap any remaining bed bugs.
    • Install mattress encasements to trap and suffocate any existing bed bugs in the mattress. At the same time, the encasements make it easier to identify any new bed bugs.

If you use any of these monitoring devices and still spot any bed bugs, it’s best to call in Pest control and management specialists for further treatment.
