Why bed bugs keep coming back? 

Bed bugs generally keep coming back because you haven’t eliminated every bed bug in the colony, and only some of them. The most difficult part of treating bed bugs is that they are excellent at hiding, so it can be difficult to completely wipe out the entire colony.

We know how frustrating it can be to treat your home for bed bugs only to have them return. You think you’ve done everything right, but the bed bugs keep coming back. You washed the bed sheets, multiple times, and even used bleach, yet, there they are. You vacuumed, used a steam cleaner, ever covered the bed mattress, and still those resilient bed bugs are in your clothes, furniture, carpet, and other places.

The fact of the matter is bed bugs are tricky pests. You can pick them up from just about anywhere regardless of when you last treated your home. Check the Internet and you’ll find articles on bed bugs in malls, schools, subways, and hotels. A single female bed bug can create as many as 200 bed bugs. If one room in a hotel or apartment gets bed bugs, the entire building will eventually have them.

What if they were never really gone to begin with? You went to the store, bought some bed bug spray, and treated the area where you saw them … but did you get ALL of them? You may have missed a spot. Perhaps you didn’t notice that they were also in your closet, on the chair next to your bed, or even in your suitcase.

Can bed bugs return even after treatment?

Unfortunately, yes, but that is often the result when treatment is applied incorrectly. Remember, just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean they aren’t in your home. Treating the infested area is a start, but it is often a small part of the overall problem.

Sometimes, when a customer contracts with an exterminator, the customer thinks by treating only certain rooms that they’ll save money. This also is a reason bed bugs appear to return after treatment. The fact is, the treatment wasn’t thorough enough and spots were missed.

Regardless of the treatment, bed bugs can return under the right conditions. Treatments kill the existing bugs, but it is always possible that you’ll bring them into the house again.
