    Too Cool for Schools

    Phantom Bugs

    I’ve had a problem with a couple of bed bug jobs. I will have my customers prep their home and then schedule treatments at two-week intervals. Afterwards, the homeowner will go a month with no bites or sightings. Then, out of the blue, they will call about finding a dying bed bug. I think it was there the whole time and just taking time to die. Do you know how or why this happens?

    Spreadable Buggers

    Will the use of repellent products cause bed bugs to disperse further from the treatment area and spread an infestation to untreated locations? Would sealing accessible cracks and crevices in an infested area make bed bugs spread to harder to reach harborage areas?
