Why most sprays don’t work
Although there are many commercials and other advertising methods explaining how their products such as bed bug sprays are “100% effective” or “Kills bed bugs on contact” or some other over the top claim, the fact is that most of these products simply don’t work.
The reason that most bed bug sprays or other products aimed at killing bed bugs don’t work is because over time, bed bugs have become immune to the various chemicals that we and exterminators use to kill most other pests. They have become more of a super bed bug than anything else.
In the past, a common but very strong and dangerous chemical called DDT was used very liberally to kill bed bugs and any other pest imaginable. DDT was used on crops, on gardens, in third world countries and even in the homes throughout the world. All to kill any and all insects or pests that dare come near us or our food.
It was found however that all this use of DDT and similar chemicals were effecting the nervous systems of children and therefore an immediate bane was placed on their use.
After the ban, any bed bugs that survived the initial use of DDT were now becoming immune to the agent and the next generations would be more tolerable.
Now, when people try to use products, like bed bug sprays, they find that the spray doesn’t live up to its claims. It just can’t kill something that is immune to something as harsh as DDT.
Some chemical do exist that are effective and have been on the market recently but they to have the same negative effects on humans that DDT once did and therefore are strictly enforced by governments and usually only licensed exterminators can apply it, Even in this case it is only allowed in certain circumstances where the infestations are bad enough to warrant the use of such chemicals.
Exterminators will use their own bed bug sprays as they see fit and the chemicals they use are only available for use by professionals.
For the most part, the bed bug sprays that you see on the market today do very little at controlling bed bugs in your home. They may work over time and with large quantities but by that time you could have saved yourself lots of money and reduced your use of these “unknown” chemical cocktails they use by calling in a professional or using one of the methods mentioned in our “get rid of bed bugs on your own page”.
When it comes to using a bed bug spray you are looking for ones that are non-toxic, doesn’t spray, is safe to use around pets and children and is safe to inhale. After all, the most common place to find bed bugs is in the bed and that is a place you do a lot of breathing.
