almost all pesticides are dangerous. You can use pesticides to kill them if washing your sheets doesn't work. Either way be sure and wash the sheets before putting them back on the bed. You don't want to sleep in pesticide residue.


One of the best ways to treat bed bugs is to use a combination of bed bug steamer, bed bug mattress encasement and diatomaceous earth. Some bed bug pesticides are non-residual in nature so they are not as dangerous as those that leaves a residue.
