A vacuum is not going to kill bed bugs, but it will still help get rid of them. Vacuums are a great tool in the battle against bed bugs simply because the baby bed bugs can be clear, making it hard to see them and even harder to kill them.
There is one more option for dealing with insects, and it's both humane and tidy, two things most people value greatly: the bug vacuum. Bug vacuums, as the name rather clearly implies, are tools designed to draw in bugs using suction. But the suction a bug vacuum creates is gentle enough to not injure the insect, so you can release the critter outside, thereby keeping your interior insect-free while doing your little part to keep the eco system balanced.
The beater brush or the rotating brush on a vacuum cleaner can hurt or even kill some bugs like roaches. But the problem is catching them on the floor. Bugs are quick, and getting the vacuum ready and chasing after them might not always be possible.
Examine your bug vacuum for any small cracks that could allow a bug to escape. Finding an insect you thought was trapped headed toward your hand is a bad feeling. Vacuum up stinkbugs. Use a no-kill bug vacuum to get rid of stinkbugs, which can release an unpleasant odor if squashed.
Vacuums can be helpful in reducing the numbers of bed bugs in certain locations especially where there are groups or clusters of bed bugs. Vacuuming is not 100% effective, but will help capture bed bugs.
The vacuum is used during the cleaning process of a bed bug job to pickup as many live or dead bed bugs, bed bug feces and eggs as possible along mattresses, box springs, baseboards cracks and crevices.
