Bed bugs feed mostly on man, though will also live on other warm
Treatment often requires disposal of the bed that is infested,
however, bed bugs can have their nest in an crack or crevice near
the host. Treatment needs to cover all areas that the insects could
nest. New systems to treat these insects successfully include the
use of dry air systems. These systems require that infested
property is enclosed in a specially designed hot air tent and the
insects and their eggs are heated until they are desicated. This
system has the benefit of removing all insects and their eggs
without the use of pesitcide and removes the cost of replacing
expensive beds and mattresses.
