Bed Bug Foggers On Trial

View Previous Post | View Newer Post

Bed bug foggers do not kill bed bugs.

In fact, according to a  class action lawsuit filed against bed bug fogger manufacturers claiming to eradicate bed bug infestations with their product, these foggers may not do what they advertise to do, which is completely eliminate a bed bug infestation.

How do these products work? Bed bug foggers are supposed to work using aerosol insecticides contained in a metal can. People with bed bug problems are instructed to place one of these foggers in the room infested with bed bugs, release the aerosol manually and then leave the room for several hours. Foggers are usually marketed using terms like "affordable" "easy-to-use" and "cost-effective alternative to pest control companies". However, entomological research studies pitting bed bug foggers against real bed bugs show that these aerosol bombs have no effect whatsoever on bed bugs, as well as other insect infestations.

Why Foggers Fail to Kill Bed Begs

Over the past decade, bed bugs have evolved to resist insecticides because certain chemicals were originally used to kill them. Eventually, bed bug genetics learned how to adapt to these insecticides and passed resistant genes to offspring. Current studies examining the effectiveness of insecticides against bed bugs has revealed that nearly 90 percent of all bed bugs are no longer affected by traditional pesticide ingredients found in insect foggers and bed bug bombs.

Have you tried to get rid of bed bugs with an over the counter aerosol fogger and it did not work? If so, you may have a claim against the manufacturer of the product for false advertising.
