We bombed our room and the bed bugs didn't die they just kept roaming so then we used 100% alcohol on our bed and that killed them. We poured some on our wall trim but it seems like that didn't work. How would you get rid of them in the trim do I need to take it or what?
Bed bugs are excellent at hiding in very small cracks and crevices, so fogging is not recommended as reliable treatment for this pest. Fogging will only kill insects exposed at the time of treatment, and bed bugs are usually protected from fogging treatments. Alcohol can be used to kill insects on contact, but again, it will not continue to work after the application is done and dry. Our Bed Bug Control Kits have a great combination of products recommended to do thorough treatments, including contact spray, residual spray, and insecticide dust. These kits come in different sizes, depending on how many rooms you need to treat. It is important to focus on crack and crevice treatments using residual products to have a successful bed bug eradication. We have more details, tips, and videos in our online Bed Bug Treatment Guide here. Please let us know if you have further questions.
