What is a bug bomb?
A bug bomb is usually a can of pesticides in a type of aerosol can. How it works is you set it in the center of the room, turn it on, leave the room for a few hours and the pesticide fills the air. The can will have exact directions and how long to stay out of the room. They are inconvenient because you have to remove clothing or any other items that will be frequently handled, and it's recommended you cover all furniture. It also doesn't always reach insects that might be deep within walls. But it's easier and faster than other methods, and cheaper than an exterminator.

Most outlets that have an aisle with bug sprays.
If the bug bombs are used in a home where there are people living there that have a tendancy to wheezing, if they breathe it in, it can get inside their lungs and have serious… medical results.
Yes. It will.
Well.... a bug bomb does have pesticides, i suppose if you really wanted to be idiotic enough to set off a bug bomb by your head and get sick and possibly die, yea its worth a… shot. And hey, if it doesn't work at least I'll get a kick outta reading the newspapers afterwards.
No, while the pesticide in the bug bomb will kill lice any thathave fallen off the body or been combed out of the hair will die ina few days anyway from starvation as they can… no longer feed offthe host. You cannot use a bug bomb to get rid of the lice on aperson as this is a violation of its safety instructions andruns a big risk of making the person very sick. What you need to get rid of lice is a topical pesticide like lice shampoo .
it depends on where there colony is if it is in side the inner walls yes if it isn't then no.
Bug bombs can be fatal for any animal that is in the house at timethat it is set off or airing out. Please remove all animals andproperly clean the home before letting them ba…ck in.
not very effective
There will be some more ... impact is difficult to imagine ...
I have 2-Westinghouse DDT smoke bombs; I need more information so I can dispose of these properly
Don't! It's the worst thing you can do!! I have these things in my apartment and I am just getting professional treatment now. It takes 40 days because I have to be the bait,… sleep in my bed every night and GET BITTEN so that they will climb on my bed-frame which has been sprayed with a professional pesticide that causes them to die slowly and not be able to lay eggs. The REASON I have to have my apartment treated like this (and it's unbearable) is that I used 2 smoke bombs in the rooms where I was being bitten, and they caused the bugs to scatter throughout the room. Now there are a few of them hiding all over the place, it's a nightmare! If you have a small infestation just vacuum and clean and if you can try and isolate your bed (double sided carpet tape around the outside of the sheet), you might be alright. Otherwise, I know it's expensive and it sucks but really, call a reputable pro because, I've spent a year trying to beat these things on my own and it's ruined me. Save yourself the aggravation and sort it out now with someone who really knows how to get rid of them.
If I use a bug bomb in the basement; will it force the bug to goupstairs to the rest of the house?
In Pest Control
No, but they could pick up an odor and i would avoid placement around silks, furs, or expensive garments that need dry cleaning. On a side note though, I advise against fogger…s since it is almost impossible to get enough concentration for a complete kill, there is no residual and they are cost prohibitive.
I advise against it, foggers are expensive and usually don't solve the problem because concentration is not enough to get 100% and there is no residual killing effect.
Bombs (foggers) are NOT a solution for bed bugs. A recent research study showed three over-the-counter foggers labeled as bed bug products were not effective against bed bugs.… (Experts have known this for years.) Bombs can also make bed bugs spread deeper into your home-- so it might SEEM like they're better for a short time, but they are still there and will be harder to eliminate because you just spread them around into places they aren't normally found.
Some but not all. It has to be really concentrated since they arehardy and they can smell it coming so before it gets to that point,many will go into walls away from most of i…t and those in placeslike inside your furniture or boxsprings (extremely common) will becompletely sheltered. There is also no residual killing effect.Professional companies almost never use any kind of fog on a bbtreatment for those reasons.
