Will Bed Bugs Ever Go Away?

Bed bugs look like they are here to stay. There are 3 ways to get rid of bed bugs available to us today. One is chemical. The bed bugs are proven to have high levels of resistance to these chemicals, clutter and laundry are obstacles to preforming thorough chemical treatments, the technician him or her self can be an issue, just like there are good doctors and bad doctors, it seems like an impossible task.
Two is heat. Takes clutter and laundry out of the picture, but the problem is expense and although very safe is done by an experienced company, can be dangerous. The problem with heat is cold spots.
Three is Fumigation. Gas can get everywhere, wall voids, under carpets, in the clutter. 100 percent kill, but expensive with restrictions. Can't fumigate a row home, at least I don't think. Single condo units may be tough.
All I can say is. Yikes.

Bed Bugs In Pultry

Bed Bugs have been found in movie theaters, dorm rooms, hotel rooms, apartment units, cruise ships, office buildings and ever hen houses. It just amazes me how this problem has become such a horrible epidemic with no end in sight.

One of the best short bed bug documentaries I've seen in a long time. Doctor Potter is interviewed. Great information about bed bugs and gives a good overview.
