I went to a house that had bed bugs. The home owner said he discovered them 4 weeks ago. He has spent over $400 on bombs, foggers, and sprays. Bed bugs are resistant to most sprays available to home owners. They don’t work. They might kill a few, they make some sick, and some they don’t even touch. Every time you use the weak stuff, it makes their next generation that much more tolerant.
He was not spraying in the right areas. You need to be trained in the proper procedure to spray for bed bugs. Did you know that you need to remove all the electrical plates, pictures off the walls, drawers pulled out and carpet pulled away from the walls? Plus a whole lot more. It is one of the more complex sprays for a professional.
He used the spray in the bedroom where they found the bed bugs. What he did was chase them out of that room on the second floor bedroom and now they are all the way down in the basement.
He did kill a least one, I saw it. I also picked up the bed spread and there was one on the sheet, alive and kicking. That’s the one in the picture. Well, Grumpy’s Pest, Tree, and Lawn Spray Services, LLC is now on the job.
