When it comes to battling bed bugs, bombs are one of the most popular solutions. They contain a combination of different pesticides to rid your home of these bugs. Most bombs contain permethrin, a synthetic chemical derived from the chrysanthemum flower. Pyrethrin was first synthesized in 1973 and is one of the most common insecticides used in the treatment of bedbugs. Pyrethrin is also an ingredient in many other products like cat flea collars and lice treatment.
These bombs work by filling your home with a fog of insecticides that kill bed bugs. You should place the bomb near the main harborage area of the bugs. If the insecticide is strong enough, you may need to leave the building for a short period of time. The time frame varies depending on the type of bugicide you use.
Unlike traditional sprays, bed bug bombs can be applied to mattresses without leaving stains or residue. While they are safe to use, be sure to keep them away from children and pets. They are effective against the eggs and larvae of bedbugs and can be used in both institutional and commercial facilities. The most effective way to combat bedbugs is to act quickly.
Some people have had good results using hot shots, but it is important to use a combination of sprays and bug bombs to eliminate the entire infestation. If you’re not sure which method will work best, consider hiring an exterminator.
