Not all pests are built alike. Some are big. Some are small. Some are easy to treat. Others are nearly impossible. Bed bugs are one of those pests that are both small and nearly impossible to eliminate on your own. This is due to their adept evasion skills and ability to remain undetected for long periods of time. This is how they do it.

How Bed Bugs Evade DIY Pest Control

An adult bed bug is roughly 2.5mm in length, making them incredibly difficult to spot. Combine this with the fact that bed bugs are nocturnal insects that usually only emerge to feed during the night, and you have yourself a very elusive pest. In addition, when bed bugs are faced with the danger of store-bought pest control, they are quick at retreating to areas that aren’t easily treatable, such as inside wall voids, within furniture, behind baseboards, or inside cracks and crevasses throughout your house. This can make DIY options ineffective and may leave you wondering how bed bugs keep managing to return after treatments.
