Bed bug infestations develop slowly.
One good thing is that bed bugs could take long before they can actually start becoming a nuisance. Consider a scenario with a single female bed bug with the ability to lay about 100 eggs at least. This would be perhaps in the first month and hence translated into infant bed bugs with an allowance of premature death, would make about 70 bed bugs.
It only benefits you to re-treat as this is the one way to ensure to get rid of the infestation entirely and prevent another infestation, simply because there are outside variables out of your control that can cause these bed bugs to come back.
Bed bugs have been around for thousands of years. They feed on blood, but are not known to spread any diseases to humans. Some people can be allergic to their bites. Getting rid of a bed bug infestation is not easy, but there are steps you can take to control the problem. There are also steps you
