Bedbugs are small insects, and when you kill them, they do not scurry off into the air. Their shells are made of a hard material called an exoskeleton, which functions like a human skeleton, providing structure to the insects’ bodies. The shell is inflexible, but hard enough to withstand a fight. In addition to that, bedbugs need to shed their exoskeletons frequently as they grow.
The thermal death point for bedbugs is between 120 and 180 degrees fahrenheit, so high temperatures will kill them faster. However, if you are treating a home with low temperatures, the bugs may not die in a single day. If you do see any signs of bedbugs, be sure to disinfect the furniture and personal belongings.
It is important to separate treated from untreated furniture, and never treat only half of a room. This can result in the bugs coming back in a few days. Similarly, you need to treat all your clothes, and keep them in clear plastic bags. If you don’t use clear plastic bags, bedbugs may return.
There are many ways to kill bedbugs, and you can use both chemical and non-chemical methods. However, some of these methods are more effective than others. To ensure that the best method is chosen, you should inspect the furniture surrounding the bed.
