Bed bugs do not eat these type of food. Bed bugs only eat blood. The exterminator treats your room in order to kill the bed bugs. If you remove that pesticide protection, you are only helping the bed bugs avoid contact with the pesticides.
Bed bugs tend to remain within five feet of their food source. Any clothing, linens, or other washable fabric should be placed in the dryer on its highest setting for at least 30 minutes. Vacuum the room, mattress, and any furniture thoroughly. Do not place any items you frequently take from your home within the bedroom.
Can bed bugs be in only ONE room of your house? My step son came home from school today with a bite on his arm, a couple on each leg, one on his stomach and a couple on his back. I looked up pictures of bed bug bites, and this is what it looks like.
Majority of homeowners who find out about bed bug infestations do so only after they have seen one bed bug crawling on their mattress. In 90% of such cases, the inhabitants of the household do not suffer any bites. The reason being: only a few people are allergic to the bed bug's saliva.
To kill bed bugs with heat, the room must be even hotter to ensure sustained heat reaches the bugs no matter where they are hiding. Common bed bugs are found almost anywhere their host can live.

Bed bugs can spread from one room or apartment to another through door frames, windows, or holes or cracks in the walls, ceilings and floors. They can contaminate wood furniture by laying eggs in cracks and recesses, and when that furniture is moved, these eggs (which can stay viable for years) may hatch in a new location.
