Ways to Escape a Bed Bug Nightmare: Does Fumigation Kill Bed Bugs?

                Ways to Escape a Bed Bug Nightmare: Does Fumigation Kill Bed Bugs?

We can all imagine the horror and frustration that comes with a bed bug sighting, let along a full-blown infestation.  Infestations often lead people to be willing to use any method necessary to rid their home or business of the bugs.  Sometimes people opt for fumigation as a treatment method, especially when no other DIY treatment has worked.


First, let’s clear up what we mean by “fumigation”.  Fumigation treatments are not the same as using a bug bomb or fogger.  Fumigation involves releasing powerful restricted us pesticides insecticides inside a structure that is completely sealed with a tarp so none of the insecticide can escape.  The idea is that the fumigant will penetrate through everything inside the structure and kill any live bed bugs. 

Here are the problems:

  1. Depending on where you live, fumigation can be very expensive.  If you live in the South or Southern California, you might know that fumigation treatments are quite common. However, in the Northern U.S., fumigation companies more rare, which makes treatments 3-5 times more expensive.
  2. Infestations in multi-family housing situations are extremely expensive and complicated to treat with fumigants. Imagine having to seal an entire high-rise with tarps. It’s just not plausible for many and would cost a fortune to hire the manpower to complete such a job.
  3. Bed bugs can come right back. Unlike other treatment methods, there are no lingering effects after the initial treatment.  If there is even a single bed bug left inside or reintroduced to the structure, it’s just a matter of time before there are sightings and bites once again. 
  4. Finally, fumigation is not an option for many business owners, homeowners or apartment managers as it requires the entire structure to be completely closed.” for an extended time not to mention potential roof damage.

And the solution is…

Convectex encourages those plagued with bed bugs to skip fumigation and go directly to a heat treatment.  Heat is fast, affordable and works within just 24 hours.  Heat is the closest treatment to fumigation without having to tarp, or shut down an entire hotel or apartment complex for a single infested unit.  You have the option to treat single rooms, apartments, or the entire building depending on the size of the infestation.
