How can I prevent a bed bug reinfestation?


When you believe that you've eliminated your bed bug problem, you probably don't want to see the critters again. There are a couple of steps you can take to help ensure that bed bugs don't make their way back into your home:

Start by applying a residual powder inside indoor cracks, around electrical outlets, inside walls, between carpet and the wall, and around electronics. We suggest using our Professional Bed Bug Applicator, which helps to apply the powder into hard-to-reach areas.

When you come home from a trip or vacation, run your clothes through the dryer on high heat, and treat your luggage and other belongings in a portable bed bug heater. Exposure to at least 120 degrees of heat will kill bed bugs and their eggs within a couple of hours. This will prevent any hitch-hikers from spreading into your home from outside sources.
