Hey, we recently found out we had bedbugs (saw them and had a K9 inspection done). We were ready to pay for the heat treatment, but found out that with our house, it wouldn’t be affective as they would just hide in the insulation, then come back out once things cooled off.
So, they gave us tips on what to do for treatment. We got interceptors, new metal bedframes, sprays, and traps for the outlets and light switches. We kept the old bedframes in the rooms so they would migrate from the old frame to the new one and get caught in the interceptors.
Well, it’s been two weeks now and they’ve all seemed to have disappeared, not a single one in any of the traps. From what I’ve read, they feed every 5 days. So, even if they somehow waited the full 5 days and then laid eggs, those eggs would’ve still hatched by now and will have come to feed.
Does anyone have any idea as to how long this method usually takes before we’ll start seeing them?
