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.
