Treatment of Bedbugs
There exist many sprays in market for killing the bed bugs but the regular chemical treatment being carried for destroying these bugs are DDT, pyrethrums and bug bombs. The DDT gets bind to the sodium pores of cells, cause inflammation by allowing sodium to flood the cells which leads to the damage of nervous system. The treatment works effective in killing bed bugs.
Steam treatment otherwise called Thermacure is meant to inhibit bed bugs and preventing it from re-occurrence. The home is stranded with ducts and hot air of 113⁰F is pumped into home. This method can be carried out only by the professional company who specialize in this treatment.
Environmental Protection Agency has registered more than 300 pesticides to treat the bed bugs which broadly fall into seven chemical classes of pesticides – pyrethrins, pyrethroids, desiccants, biochemicals, pyrroles, neonicotinoids and insect growth regulators. On the other hand, pesticide treatment is considered to be ineffective as it causes bugs to get dispersed and spread to all other places.
It is one of the effective treatments being carried for the extermination of bedbugs. Typically, bugs cannot survive above the temperature of 80 degrees. The heat of 125-135 degrees will be applied to the infested areas using specialized heating equipment. This process kills all stages of bedbugs right from egg to adults leaving no space to escape.
Cryonite is used as a major agent in freezing treatment. It is a non toxic treatment that completely exterminates bedbugs. The extreme coolant of liquid CO2 of temperature -110⁰ F is sprayed to kill the pests. Cryonite is eco-friendly to use and once sprayed it freezes the pests to death.
