Bed Bugs Pest Solutions
A thorough insecticide treatment to PERMANENTLY REMOVE BED BUGS should involve 2 to 3 visits from the PMP, as it is unlikely that all the bed bugs will be killed in the initial treatment.
An insecticide treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the size and condition of the room. Once the treatment is complete you should wait until all the insecticides have dried before reentering your home, or until the PMP says it is safe to reenter.
Before any treatment the PMP should provide you with a detailed list of instructions for how to prepare your home.

Improper preparation is one of the main reasons that treatment for bed bugs fail.

We strongly recommend against trying to conduct insecticide treatment for bed bugs by yourself. Controlling bed bugs with insecticides is a challenging and time-consuming process which requires expertise and in many states a license is required to apply the insecticides for which kill bed bugs. The insecticides that can be purchased in a hardware store, such as foggers, are not effective in controlling bedbugs and we strongly recommend against their use.
