Here’s why bug bombs don’t work:
Bug bombs can’t penetrate hard-to- reach-areas Bug bombs, or foggers, use an aerosol propellant, filling an open area with pesticide. A fine mist will settle on the surface, killing bed bugs that come in contact with it. Sounds great, right? Well, the problem here is that most bed bugs aren’t out in the open, roaming around your bedroom for all to see.
Bed bugs are elusive pests. They’ll hide in the tiniest of cracks and crevices, only emerging to feast on your blood while you sleep. So, bug bombs might work well on a few stragglers out for a stroll, they’re useless at getting into those hard-to-reach areas where bed bugs are hiding.
