Bell Environmental generally recommends that all of the rooms in the customer’s location receive bed bug control treatment. This advice is consistent with industry and public health practices, among them the New York City Bed Bug Advisory Board which states that bed bug “Control efforts should not be limited to the room(s) in which infestation was confirmed, but should extend to all rooms in the home, apartment, condo etc.”. While the bed bug dog provides an accurate snapshot of where the bed bugs are at the time of inspection, these bugs may travel and spread to other rooms by the time treatment begins. If a customer elects to only treat select locations, the customer increases the risks that bed bugs will remain on the premises and will not be eliminated even after a thorough localized treatment.
