Yes! Some Bed bug sprays and bed bug powders have residual killing power for up to 60 days; therefore read your labels! Not all bed bug pesticides work the same.
Some pesticides are effective when killing bed bugs, but they do not kill the eggs. If the eggs are left behind, they will hatch within days and the infestation will start the cycle all over again. Bed bug poison and bed bug powders have been proven unsuccessful on many occasions due to the fact that bed bugs have developed an immunity to modern day pesticides.
Bed bugs were erradicated from the United States in the 1940′s and have made a resounding come back in recent years due to the ban of DDT. DDT (dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane) is a synthetic pesticide used against bed bugs in the US until its ban due to its harmful environmental effects in 1972. Since then, due to the increase in international travel, bed bugs have come back with a vengence in the past decade. They are now at epedemic proportions.
Other pesticides are still used to kill bed bugs, but are not as effective. These pesticides also have many harmful side-effects. Many other treatments for bed bugs on the market are toxic and perhaps more harmful to your health than the actual bed bugs.
Some treatments may require you to leave your home for an extended period of time before returning such as bed bug bombing treatments. These treatments are so toxic that you and your family cannot even be around when it is done. These bombings leave behind a film on everything in your home and you can easily still breathe in these toxic fumes even after the dust has settled because the dust HAS settled — on your furniture, floors, clothes and bedding. Many people have become sick after bombing their homes because they continue to breathe these harmful fumes for weeks after the treatment is done. Children and pets are especially suseptible to getting sick after these bombings and other toxic treatments. They are on the floor stirring up the toxic residue left behind and can become very ill.
