Bed bugs live on human blood for survival. They generally hide in mattress seam and bed cracks. They may also hide in furniture and cracks & crevices in the wall. They spread mainly through baggage and clothing of travelers or visitors, bedding material and furniture. The treatment may have to be repeated within a fortnight to ensure complete eradication.
The treatment is done by spraying the insecticide, especially in the seams of the mattress and other places infested by bed bugs. The bed bugs die on contact with the insecticide. Fumigation is also an effective method to control bed bugs.
