Bed bug TreatmentsThere are many products that have bed bugs as a target pest on the label. However,not all of these products have proven to be consistent in use.CDC has reported wide spread resistance in bed bugs to pesticides. As we can never be sure where the beb bugs come from. It is best to assume that resistance is a potential problem and recognize it as such when performing treatments
It has been found that efficacy of products is not always consistent .some materials kill adults well on contact, but have very little residual control. Some have been noted not to kill newly hatched nymphs. The fact that bed bugs spend a large part of their time in diaspora also plays apart in material effectiveness, as water based pesticides do not penetrate the exoskeleton well, and thus may have little effect on inactive bed bugs. The materials that are oil based, such as essential plant oils or those containing alchohol , do seem to penetrat the exo skeleton and are effective against most stages of the bed bugs cycle.
