You just found out that you have bed bugs. The first reaction for most people is to drop everything and run to the store to buy every imaginable bug spray to kill these invasive little pests. The truth of the matter is, bed bug spray may kill a bug on contact, however, it will not get rid of a bed bug infestation. The spray won’t be able to reach in every single crack and crevice, outlets behind baseboards, under carpeting etc. Additionally, bed bugs are becoming more and more resistant to insecticides and pesticides. In most instances, it will actually make the infestation much worse!
Moreover, spraying harmful chemicals on or around your bedding may be unsafe to inhale while sleeping. It is highly recommended to seek a professional exterminator that specializes in bed bug extermination.
