Bed bugs are highly resiliant
Did you know that bed bugs can live an entire year without feeding! It's hard to believe, but if a bed bug slipped into a crack in your floor board, and you left your house for an entire year, you could return to a bed bug that is still alive. Even sub-zero temperatures can be ineffective at killing them. They are highly resistent to chemical treatments, and must cross the path of the chemical in order to die. Many people believe if they leave their bed bug infested mattress outside during winter months, the bed bugs will die. This is not true, unless the temperature remains -18 celcius for 1 complete week. Remember, heat kills bed bugs!
