Treatment of Bedbugs
There are many sprays in the market for killing bed bugs, but of the most common of chemical treatments being used for destroying these bugs are DDT, pyrethrums and bug bombs. DDT gets bound to the sodium pores of cells, causes inflammation by allowing sodium to flood the cells which leads to the damage of the nervous system. The treatment works effectively in killing bed bugs, but is not always the best for the environment or surroundings. Here are 5 facts to know before considering bed bug spray.
Steam treatment otherwise called Thermacure is meant to inhibit bed bugs and prevent bedbug infestation from re-occurrence. The home is stranded with ducts and hot air of 113⁰F is pumped into the home. This method can be carried out only by a professional company who specialize in this treatment.
The 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.
Heat treatment for bed bugs
Heat is one of the effective and safe treatments being carried out for the extermination of bedbugs. Typically, bugs cannot survive above the temperature of 80 degrees. The heat of 125-135 degrees F will be applied to the infested areas using specialized heating equipment. This process kills all stages of bedbugs right from eggs 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.
