What are bed bugs and what can heat do to them
Bed bugs are skilled hitchhikers. They do not fly, but they can move quickly over floors, walls, and ceilings. The bed bug feeds, then retreats back to its place of harbourage for days or even weeks before coming back out. This can make detection difficult until the infestation is well established. These insects have behavioral patterns that help them avoid all of our attempts to exterminate them and adaptive physiology that allows them to produce offspring that are resistant to insecticides. But heat treatments combat these natural defense mechanisms.
