After treatments are made for bed bugs, residents generally return to their home to sleep, providing blood meals for any bed bugs that did not immediately die. Even if the bed bugs live only a few days longer, it gives them time to reproduce, enabling a new or extended infestation. Such results were not necessarily found in the past because research was conducted in a lab and the bed bugs not given the opportunity to feed after the treatment test.
This is likely because, when bed bugs feed, it “stimulates detoxification enzymes responsible for insecticide resistance,” the researchers said. Because of this, it is important to use non-chemical control methods along with insecticides in any effort to control bed bugs. These include such things as vacuuming, laundering bedding and clothing, encasing mattresses, etc.
