Do-it-yourself treatments only succeed in disbursing localized bed bug clusters into various locations, spreading the infestation and stalling eradication. Last year an American woman blew up her home by lighting several insecticide “foggers” simultaneously: the propellant caused her gas supply to ignite.
• Don’t throw away your furniture. The chances are that you will spread the bugs through your home.
• Don’t flee the infested room. The bedbugs want food and warmth: if you go, they’ll follow. They are attracted to the carbon dioxide that you exhale so if you try to escape to the couch, you’ll simply infest that area as well.
• Talk to your neighbors. It is possible your bugs have come from them, or that you have given them yours. No one is to blame and no one is immune because bedbugs can be picked up anywhere and brought home. Their eggs are extremely sticky and can survive in all sorts of conditions. And, there are a lot of different reasons people have them. Traveling and picking up bedbugs in hotels, sitting in movie theaters, the increased EBay trade, returning college students, work places, house guests, play dates and the list goes on. They’re hitchhikers, so if somebody has bedbug eggs on their pants and they sit someplace, the next person who sits there will pick them up and bring them home. You don’t know you have them for a month, but then you do.
