Best Answer

You could buy pesticides labeled for bed bugs, a respirator mask, and gloves, and carefully follow the instructions to treat your home. But often doing your own pest control for bed bugs means you spread the problem and make it harder to eliminate. Answer Best advice: get a professional in and make sure they know how to get rid of bed bugs. Avoid the use of aerosol or fogger based insecticides as these can disperse the problem.

Can bed bugs come back after extermination?

The simple answer is yes. Most likely you will need the exterminator to come twice. The first time he will kill the living bugs. The second time he will kill the babies from the eggs that hatched. The chemicals that exterminators use do not kill the eggs. So after the first treatment the eggs are still alive. The gestation period for bed bugs is about 1-2 weeks. So the exterminator will need to come back a second time after the they have hatched. It's important to have the exterminator come back before the babies turn into adults and reproduce again. If the exterminator tells you that he can get rid of them in one treatment then find a new exterminator. It's just not true. It's hard to say whether or not you will need more than 2 exterminations. It depends on the degree of the infestation, how well you prepped your apartment for extermination, the skill and experience of the exterminator and whether or not you live in an apartment with other affected units. If you do, then it is likely the bugs will crawl through the walls and come back.
