Many stressed-out victims look online for the best bed bug treatment products available to get rid of the pests. Some of the product success claims are ridiculous.
For example, traps that are designed to catch the pests.
So, you catch a few bugs, then what do you do? And if you don’t catch them, does this mean you don’t have them?
It’s not like catching mice in a house when there might be only be five or ten around. These pests can be living in your house in the hundreds and hundreds. They are hiding in many hard-to-get-at areas, just waiting to feed on you.
Many of the so-called best bed bug killer products are gimmicky and useless such as detectors.
Other questionable products, like bed bug foggers, also called a bomb, are designed to fumigate your house. But the pests are really smart, and, as soon as they smell a threat, they go deeper into their hiding places, where they will survive, and thrive.
With foggers, you will be left with chemical residue all over your house. If you have children and pets, you will be exposing them to these toxins.
However, in one way, some of the product claims are accurate.
For example, the claims that the product will kill the pests upon contact. But the bugs don’t sit out on the carpet waiting to be killed.
No, they are hiding deep within the electrical outlets, buried within the seams of the couch and the bed, and under the base boards – and these are only a few of the places.
Many victims, after spending hundreds of dollars in their search for the best bed bug treatment product, become even more panicky when they don’t achieve successful eradication.
In desperation, they turn to a professional exterminator which will cost them much more – with no guarantee of success.
Many experts believe it is best to use a home remedy for bed bugs such as inexpensive non-toxic Diatomaceous Earth killer powder and to stop looking for the quick fix.
There is no such thing as a quick solution for this type of infestation. To begin with, getting the right knowledge is essential for successful eradication and for reducing personal stress levels caused by the pests.
Complete pest removal is the goal and some commercial products delay this.
Also, the longer the pests are in contact with the chemicals, the greater the chances are that they will become chemically resistant.
