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.

Thanks for the feedback!
Pets, cover fish tanks and food.
Yes. It will.
Before sleeping on a bed that is located in room where pesticides have been used, it is recommended that you wash all bedding before sleeping on it. This is especially the… case if you have any kind of respiratory disease.
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.
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.
it depends on where there colony is if it is in side the inner walls yes if it isn't then no.
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 s…erious medical results.
First of all, foggers won't get rid of bed bugs. Time out should be 4 hours plus an hour of ventilation.
Bug bombs can be fatal for any animal that is in the house at time that it is set off or airing out. Please remove all animals and properly clean the home before letting t…hem back in.
not very effective
Cover all furniture and vents. Put away all food, including pet food. Extinguish any flames, including pilot lights. Close all doors and windows, turn off A/C, heat, and ce…iling fans. Remove all people and pets. Follow instructions on bomb, and evacuate area immediately.
No. First off, "Bombing" a house is very unsafe and dangerous to humans, epically children and pets. The pest management has turned its gears towards inspecting the …home, either with a K-9 dog or by an inspector. Once it has been confirmed their is bed bug activity in the dwelling, proper treatment menthods are used. We do not recommend using methods of "Bombing" because it will leave residue in your house where treatment isn't necessary, and because of how unsafe the method is. "Freezing" bed bugs is a common method that pest control companies use. After our own research we found that "freezing" bed bugs is not very effective. When bed bugs are treated they must be killed. Followups after treatment is necessary to ensure eradication. We recommend treating with proper materials only in the rooms that have been confirmed with bed bug activity to ensure the smallest amount of chemical usage inside of a home. i dont know TRY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1........(if you are serious please dont)
Bombing is highly discouraged when it comes to bed bug infestations, as more often than not it will only spread the infestation.
Very effective, although it would get rid of your house as well.
It would be hard enough to build up sufficient concentration, but you needn't worry. Professionals don't treat for them because they don't live long off of the host so the pro…blem will resolve itself.
No, while the pesticide in the bug bomb will kill lice any that have fallen off the body or been combed out of the hair will die in a few days anyway from starvation as th…ey can no longer feed off the host. You cannot use a bug bomb to get rid of the lice on a person as this is a violation of its safety instructions and runs a big risk of making the person very sick. What you need to get rid of lice is a topical pesticide like lice shampoo.
