Facts about Bed Bugs

About Chemical Treatments

CHEMICALS ARE SPOT TREATMENTS – The problem with chemical treatments starts with the fact that they primarily work as spot treatments. Research studies at the University of Kentucky indicated that bed bugs have developed an increased resistance to current pesticides. This means that unless a bed bug is contacted directly with an approved pesticide it may not kill the bug at all. Only 6% of chemical treatments are effective in one treatment. Most chemical treatments take 3 or more applications to be effective.

HEALTH RISKS – Bed bugs got their name because of the places they are commonly found—our beds. This poses another problem to using chemicals. Applying large amounts of pesticides to the areas in which you and your family sleep can be toxic. Health threats posed to people and pets from pesticide sensitivity include: skin and eye irritation, nerve damage, disruption of the endocrine system and even cancers.

ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS – Environmental hazards are another concern related to chemical treatments. DDT was an approved chemical for bed bug treatments until it was banned in 1972 due to its environmental risks. Sprayed pesticides often end up in the air, soil, or water, where they pose threats to the ecosystem and cause adverse health and reproductive effects to many animals in the food chain.
