Myth: Over-the-counter treatments will get rid of bed bugs
Fact: It’s unfortunate, but a lot of companies sell bed bug sprays that are ineffective. Bed bugs are fairly tolerant of pyrethroid-based ingredients like those found in many over-the-counter pesticides. These sprays will kill weak bed bugs, but not all of them. In fact, these sprays can make them more resistant over time if they continue to be used. Some of these treatments – like bombs and foggers – can make an infestation worse by causing the bed bugs to move into neighboring rooms or apartments.
