Funigation and Bed Bugs

Will Fumigation Eliminate Bed Bugs?
The short answer here again is yes, but fumigation is not always a realistic option for many people. It is very expensive, most times it can only be done to a single home or an entire building, and did I mention it was expensive. The idea behind fumigation is that a poisonous gas penetrated every pore of the structure which is the reason a fumigation would work so well in bedbug control. Some people will have their belongings fumigated, say in the back of a truck, if they are moving and want to be sure that they are not taking any bedbugs with them. This approach might not be as bad in terms of expense but I am sure it is not cheap. Then the problem is finding a company that specializes in fumigation's to do it. It is a very specialized form of pest control.

My name is Sean Rollo and I am a former pest control technician and now Quality Assurance Manager and Technical Advisor for one of North America’s largest pest control companies.

I have spent the better part of the past five years studying and researching bed bugs. It has literally become a hobby.

I have created a website geared toward providing the public with a place to go to get unbiased information and allow industry professionals to communicate with each other on this issue.

The site is called The Bed Bug Resource ( At the top of the page there is a Forum button that will take you to the message boards.

If you find this to be a useful resource please feel free to post a link to it, or pass the information on to colleagues and the general public.

If you reference the site or use any of its material I ask that a copy of the article be sent to me.

Alongside with positive effects of fumigation there can be harmful effects on a human organism. Especially if a person is allergic.
