A bed bug fogger (bug bomb) seems like a quick-fix for those nasty little suckers, right?
Here are 3 reasons they don’t work and 5 ways they make things worse and prolong your agony. Even worse, there are two ways they can be dangerous.
This information is critical!
The page is pretty long, but this is must-know information. So if you just need the main points, here they are in bullet form:
- They can’t reach the bed bugs to kill them
- The ingredients in foggers are primarily contact killers
- They have a low concentration of pesticide
- It spreads the infestation — wider and deeper
- It creates/increases pesticide resistance
- It delays the effectiveness of other bed bug treatments
- It helps the bed bug population grow
- It makes getting professional help difficult and costly
- They can make you sick
- They can cause explosions and house fires
If you are not easily convinced or want links to the scientific research, please read the whole article. This is really important!

3 Reasons Foggers Don’t Kill
Most Bed Bugs
1. Foggers can’t reach the Bed Bugs to Kill Them
When most people think of foggers or вЂњbug bombsвЂќ, they think they are something akin to gas fumigation which penetrates all of the voids in the treatment area.
But, that’s not really how foggers work.
They use an aerosol propellant to disperse the contents through the air in a very fine mist, which settles onto all of the surfaces in the area. It’s true that they do get the pesticide all over everything that is out in the open. But it doesn’t get inside, underneath or behind anything.
That’s bad news because bed bugs hide when they aren’t feeding. So most of them just don’t come into contact with it.
2. The ingredients in foggers are primarily contact killers
Even so-called «Bed Bug Foggers» have been proven to have low residual effectiveness. That means they lose much of their power to kill once they dry. They contain pesticides that need to make contact with bed bugs to be most effective.
Since we already know they can’t reach the majority of bed bugs in their hiding places, that’s more bad news.
3. Foggers have a low concentration of pesticide
So what about the few they do reach? The pesticides in foggers have been shown to kill bed bugs under certain conditions. But there’s not a high concentration of those chemicals in foggers.
A controlled study by the Entomology Department at the University of Ohio demonstrated that the ingredients in foggers were ineffective at killing even some of the bed bugs they did reach.
To sum it all up, foggers contain pesticides that primarily are contact killers, but they can’t reach the places where most bed bugs hide to kill them. And even if they do come into contact with some bed bugs, the concentration of pesticide is so low it still won’t kill some of the ones it reaches.
Still don’t believe that foggers don’t work on bedbugs? You don’t have to take my word for it.
Read the abstract of the landmark OSU Entomology Department study on the ineffectiveness of bed bug foggers that was published in Pest Control Technology Online.
Are you convinced they’re a bad idea yet? If not, you should know that using foggers to treat a bed bug infestation, will make the situation worse.
5 Ways using a fogger Makes it harder
to get rid of Bed Bugs
1. Foggers spread the infestation wider and deeper.
Typically, bed bugs remain fairly close to (albeit hidden in) the places where they most frequently feed. So in the beginning at least, bed bug infestations are usually concentrated in and around where people sleep or sit for long periods of time.
But, releasing a fogger can change all that.
Foggers cause bed bugs to scatter (to avoid contact ). As a result, the infestation is spread wider as they try to get away from source of the offending chemicals.
But it doesn’t stop there. They also go deeper into the nooks and crannies of your home, trying to find safer shelter.
This is bad for two reasons.
First, it means that rooms (or units in a multifamily dwelling) that were previously unaffected are now more likely to be infested.
Second, it means that because they’ve gone deeper into hiding in cracks and crevices, they are harder to find.
2. Foggers create/increase pesticide resistance.
More bad news. The chemicals in foggers have been shown to create or increase pesticide resistance in bed bugs.
Through the low level exposure, they develop a degree of immunity to the pesticide. It’s kind of like how we get flu shots to prevent the flu.
And to make matters worse, it’s a progressive process. The bed bugs keep getting stronger each time they are exposed in that way.
Sadly, many people use a bed bug fogger hoping it will do the trick. Then. when it doesn’t work (or seems to work for a while). they use one again. It’s a vicious cycle. Each time one is released, it increases pesticide resistance.
If you have already used a fogger/bug bomb, please stop now. Each time you do it you are making them harder and harder to kill!
Since repeated use of foggers makes bed bugs stronger and stronger. doesn’t this photo seem a little ironic?
3. Using a fogger delays the effectiveness of other bed bug treatments.
The ingredients in foggers act as a repellent, causing bed bugs to stay hidden more than normal. That could sound like a good thing, right? Well it’s not.
Repelling bed bugs is a BAD IDEA.
Sure, you might not be getting bitten as much. You might even think they’re gone altogether. But adult bed bugs can live up to 18 months without a blood meal under the right circumstances.
The unfortunate side effect is that many of the other options for killing them require that bed bugs to come into contact with them to work. So if they are hiding deeper and longer, it will delay the effectiveness of those treatments.
In fact, if you’ve been trying to get rid of bed bugs for a while, and they keep coming back, this is probably the reason.
4. Using a fogger ultimately helps the bed bug population grow.
For all the reasons above, using a fogger to try to kill bugs just prolongs the problem. That’s very bad news, and not just for the obvious reason that is sucks to have bed bugs (bad pun intended, sorry!)
Here’s the real kicker:
As all this time is passing. your infestation may be getting worse. The longer you have an active bed bug population, the bigger it gets.
5. All this makes getting professional help difficult and costly.
If you’ve used a fogger to try to take care of the problem yourself, now you really need professional help. Here comes the worst part.
Some exterminators (not all of them) will refuse to treat your home if you have used a total release fogger.
Professionals know that if a fogger has been used, the situation will be much harder to handle because of all of the factors above. At the very least, it’s probably going to require more treatments — and therefore more money out of your pocket.
If you’ve already used a fogger or вЂњ bed bug bombвЂќ to try to get rid of bed bugs, STOP. And don’t do anything else yourself.
Your best bet is to try to find an experienced exterminator that really knows about bed bugs and is willing to treat environments where total release foggers have been released. You can find more help on how to find a good one in the section on working with bed bug exterminators .
By the way, if you think it might be a good idea to just not tell them. think again.
You’ll be wasting their time and your money by keeping it a secret.
It’s extremely important that you let any exterminator you work with know exactly what you’ve already done. That way they can take the after-effects into account when they design a pest control strategy for your particular situation.
At this point, a few questions might be entering your mind.
But what if it’s specifically labeled for Bed Bugs? All of the information on this page applies to all total release foggers — even the ones like Hot Shot Bed Bug Fogger that have bed bugs on the label.
Then why are these things all over the store shelves? That’s a very good question, and one I can’t really answer factually. If you want speculation — I suspect it has to do with powerful corporate lobbying. But, that’s just my opinion.
I can definitely tell you this: The National Pesticide Information Center, Environmental Protection Agency, and the Centers for Disease Control all have warnings about the ineffectiveness of foggers in for treating a bed bug infestation, as well as the dangers associated with using them posted on their websites.
two Ways Bed Bug Foggers
Can be Dangerous
If all that you’ve read so far isn’t enough to make you stay far, far away from that spray can. or you don’t have bed bugs, but you’re thinking of using a fogger/bug bomb to try to get rid of some other pest. then please consider the health risks and dangers associated with them.
1. They can make you sick.
When the fogger is released, it spreads the pesticide to everything in your home вЂ“ or the outside surfaces of it anyway. While the bedbugs can hide inside, underneath, and behind things to avoid the pesticide — you will be exposed to it by everything you touch.
A detailed article about frequency and range of illnesses and injuries related to total release foggers was published by the Centers for Disease Control. You can read it here.
2. They can cause explosions and house fires.
For more information about foggers in general and the risk of explosions and house fires, check out the п»їCan Bug Bombs Really Explode?п»ї podcast or read the transcript on the National Pesticide Information Center website.
Note: On this particular podcast, they don’t speak to why you shouldn’t use foggers for bed bugs. Instead, they focus on the dangers of using them at all.
Bed Bug foggers (also called вЂњtotal release foggersвЂќ or вЂњbug bombsвЂќ) are a BAD IDEA if you truly want to get rid of bed bugs.
Unfortunately, there just is no magic trick or cure-all that gets rid of bed bugs. It’s simply not a one-shot deal. Sorry folks, that’s just a fact.
The good news is that you can get rid of bed bugs, even if you can’t afford an exterminator.
But to do it effectively, you have to get educated about what does and does not work and learn how to take an integrated pest management (or IPM) approach.
Don’t worry! You can learn all about that in the Bed Bug Pest Control section of this site.

Top 5 Best Flea Bombs: How to Use It Effectively?
No one likes to admit they have a problem with fleas. But these tiny vampire creatures are more common than you think – especially if you have pets. All it takes is one or two fleas, and after a few weeks, you have an infestation.
An infestation that’s so bad, you can’t even sit on your couch without being eaten alive. The buffet is open, and you’re on the menu.
The best flea bombs are the quickest and easiest way to get rid of these pests. We’re going to show you how to properly treat your home and share five of the best bug bombs on the market. First, we want to answer one important question:
Table of Contents
Do Flea Bombs Work?
Yes – if you buy the right ones. Just like with any other product, you need to ensure that you purchase a fogger from a reputable brand.
Flea bombs use chemicals that kill fleas, and some also kill flea eggs. Ones that also kill eggs can completely eliminate an infestation with a single treatment.
Most foggers use the following active ingredients to kill these pests:
Both of these ingredients are synthetic compounds that have similar chemical makeup to natural compounds found in certain flowers.
Does Lysol Kill Fleas?
Many people who adamantly believe flea bombs don’t work look to alternatives, like Lysol, to tackle the problem.
But Lysol won’t actually kill fleas – it’s designed to kill germs. To truly get rid of your flea problem, you’ll need to either hire an exterminator or use flea bombs.
5 Best Flea Bombs: Reviews & Comparison (2019)
When you’re dealing with an infestation, you want flea bombs that work. Effective products will get rid of the fleas quickly, and fewer treatments will be required. Oftentimes, you can wipe out an infestation after just a single treatment with the right product.
We’re going to take a look at five of the best products on the market in our flea fogger reviews.
Note: There are no non-toxic flea bombs or effective natural flea bombs that we know of, so if you want to go the non-toxic route, you’ll need to try other methods – like diatomaceous earth.
1. Best Flea Bomb – Raid Fogger
From one of the most recognizable names in the home pest control industry, Raid’s Concentrated Deep Reach Fogger kills more than just fleas – it kills roaches, ants, spiders and most other insects.
And it keeps killing for up to two months.
Non-staining, this fogger has the power to reach deep into cracks and crevices in your home where bugs may be hiding. Unlike other bug bombs, this one doesn’t leave behind any wet or messy residue.
The active ingredient in this powerful fogger is cypermethrin.
The only drawback with this flea bomb is that it doesn’t kill eggs. For best results, you’ll need to do an additional treatment 14 days after the first, once the eggs have hatched.
One package contains three foggers, and you also have the option of purchasing two or four packages at a time.
A single 1.05-ounce flea fogger treats up to 625 square feet, so one package of three foggers can treat up to 1,875 square feet of living space.
Raid warns that you should not use the cans in rooms smaller than 5ft x 5ft, and you should not place more than one can in any single room.
Users report having great results with the Concentrated Deep Reach Fogger, and its affordable price makes it the best flea bomb for budget-conscious users.
2. Hot Shot Fogger No-Mess
If you’re looking for a fogger that won’t leave a huge mess behind, the Hot Shot No-Mess fogger is a smart choice.
This deep-reaching formula uses dry fog to kill bugs. It’s non -staining, doesn’t leave a lingering scent behind and does not leave any oily residues.
And because it uses a dry fog, Hot Shot’s product is one of the safest flea bombs on the market. The package even says there’s no need to turn off pilot lights, which is necessary with other bug bombs.
The Hot Shot fogger kills more than just fleas – it also kills: crickets, ticks, ants, gnats, mosquitos, roaches, pillbugs, palmetto bugs, moths, silverfish, spiders and more.
There are a few active ingredients in this fogger, including: tetramethrin, piperonyl butoxide, and cypermethrin.
Hot Shot’s no-mess fogger is one of the best flea bombs for houses because its dry formula prevents staining and poses less of a fire risk than other bug bombs on the market today.
3. Hot Shot Flea and Bed Bug Fogger
The Hot Shot Flea and Bed Bug fogger is the best flea fogger for anyone who is also dealing with pesky bed bugs. And this fogger also kills ticks as well as hornets, lice, beetles, fire ants, flies, wasps, mosquitos and more.
This powerful fogger inhibits flea re-infestation for up to seven months, and each package contains three cans. That’s all thanks to the ingredient Nylar, which prevents fleas from developing into adults.
Each two-ounce fogger treats rooms up to 16ft x 16ft with 8ft ceilings, or 2,000 cubic feet.
The active ingredients in this bug bomb include: pyrethrins, piperonyl butoxide, and n-octyl bicycloheptene dicarboximide.
The only downside to this product is that it doesn’t use the same dry formula as the previous fogger, which means you’ll have to take extra precautions when using it (i.e. turn off pilot lights and electricity).
With that said, Hot Shot’s flea and bed bug bombs are highly effective and incredibly affordable, so you can tackle the infestation without spending a small fortune.
4. Zodiac Flea Bombs
Zodiac is a brand you may not have heard of, but their flea bombs are highly effective. Like other bug bombs, they do more than just kill fleas – they can also kill cockroaches, ticks, ants, mosquitos, spiders and more.
Zodiac’s potent formula prevents re-infestation for up to seven months. The active ingredients in this fogger are permethrin and (S)-methroprene.
A single can treats up to 1,125 square feet of space, and the fogger doesn’t leave behind any lingering odors or mess.
While a little more expensive, this fogger kills both adults and hatching eggs, so you’ll need fewer treatments to tackle the problem.
5. Hartz UltraGuard Plus
From the famous pet care brand, Hartz UltraGuard Plus fogger is designed to kill fleas and eggs in your home. It will also kill flea larvae as well as bed bugs and ticks.
Hartz’s formula contains an insect growth regulator that continues working for up to 210 days, and because it kills the eggs, you’ll notice an immediate reduction in your home’s flea population after treatment.
UltraGuard plus was designed for homes with serious infestations, so if the flea population in your home has gotten out of control, this is the right fogger for you.
Can Flea Bombs Make You Sick?
Yes, if used improperly. No matter which product you use, you must vacate the home for the entire time the bomb is active. The product’s instructions will tell you how long to stay out of the home.
Between 2001 and 2006, 466 people were injured or became ill because of bug bombs. And the majority of these were due to the users not leaving the home in time, re-entering the space too early, excessive use of the foggers and failure to alert others nearby.
6 Factors to Consider Before Buying a Flea Bomb
At this point, you might have decided that a flea bomb is the best treatment option for your infestation. There are plenty to choose from and we’ve already given you five great options. However, you’ve still got some things to consider before making your final decision.
You can save a lot of time and money by considering these important factors when shopping for the best flea bomb for your home:
Check out the types of active ingredients in the flea bomb and do some research. Some bombs will only contain a pesticide to get rid of adults. You’ll want to choose one with added insect growth regulator.
This ingredient will have a greater effect on fleas that are in the earlier life stages, keeping them from laying more eggs as adults. Do your research and take time to carefully read product reviews of the brands you’re considering.
For this reason, you’ll want to take care to find a flea bomb that continues killing for at least two months after use.
Do make sure that it will also get rid of the eggs and larvae over these two months as well as the adults. It’s your only hope of preventing multiple generations from making your home theirs again and again.
Check the labels of the packaging. You’ll find that some available flea bombs can cover up to 625-square feet of space. If that’s not enough, don’t assume two bombs are a good idea – check the instructions first.
Look for products that don’t leave oily residue and have an odor neutralizer. Especially if you’re treating a common area – like a living room, bedroom, or kitchen – you’ll want to avoid stubborn stains and residue.
You can do this by looking for a flea bomb that uses a dry fog. If not, you’ll risk chemical damage to your furniture and belongings.
The chemical ingredients should also be able to force the fleas out of their hiding spots to further expose them to the treatment.
Spending money on each individual pest can cost a lot of money and waste a lot of time. That is why you should look for a bomb that’s formulated to eliminate a variety of insects, such as spiders, ants, mosquitoes, roaches, etc.
This will save you time and money in the long-run, especially if you make sure that the effects are long-lasting. After all, it’s good to just knock them all out in one go.
How to Flea Bomb a Home
Flea bombing does require some planning – you can’t just set it off without taking a few precautionary steps first.
As a general rule of thumb you’ll want to use one bomb per room, but many people have had success by placing a single bomb in the hallway and keeping the doors open in adjacent rooms.
- Vacuum and clean the entire home. When you run the vacuum, the vibrations from the machine will draw out the larvae, making your fogger more effective. Cleaning the entire home will also help kill a few fleas here and there, making it much easier to get rid of the infestation.
- Be sure to open all drawers and doors in infested areas, so the chemicals from the fogger can reach these areas. Keeping drawers and doors open (including cabinet doors) will kill any fleas that may be hiding in these hard-to-reach spots.
- Next, remove all cookware, utensils, food, dirty laundry and small appliances from treated areas. It’s much easier to simply remove these items (especially food) than it is to clean them after they’ve been coated in chemicals. If you’re treating your entire home, you may need to box these items up and store them outside or in your vehicle until the treatment is done.
- Once you’ve removed these items, it’s time to cover all special furniture, countertops, tabletops and electronics. The chemicals from the fogger can damage these items. Plastic tarps or sheets will provide adequate protection. You can find old sheets at a thrift store, and you can find plastic tarps at your local home improvement store.
- Cut the power. Turn off all the lights in your home and any other electrical device that may be in use. Turn off the heat, air conditioning and any fans as well. The chemicals in the fogger are flammable, so leaving on electronics and lights may start a fire.
- Close all windows. In order for the flea bombs to be effective, the chemicals must be kept inside the home. Make sure that all windows and any other openings to the outdoors are closed prior to treating.
- Place the flea bomb on top of newspaper in the rooms you want to treat. The newspaper will protect your floors from the product’s residues, which can stain carpets or hard floors. Make sure all flea bombs are properly in place and set atop newspapers before you move onto the next step.
in the same way, but be sure to read the product’s instruction to make sure that you use the fogger properly.
Vacate the home and stay out for two to four hours – or however long the product recommends. Make sure that all people and pets are out of the home while the fogger is working. There are no flea bombs safe for pets, so make sure they are with you or safely with a caretaker outside of the home.
While you’re away, make sure you treat any pets for fleas before returning home. Otherwise, you’ll just bring more fleas back inside. Give your pet a bath using flea-controlling shampoo, or visit the groomer for a flea dip.
Where to Buy Flea Bombs
You can find flea bombs at Walmart in the garden/outdoor department. Flea bombs at Home Depot are usually in the aisle with other pest control products. You can also find flea bombs at Lowes in the pest control section.
How Much Are Flea Bombs?
The price of flea bombs can vary greatly depending on the brand and how many fogger cans are included in each package.
But as a general range, you can expect to pay:
$9 – $20 per package
Products that also kill flea eggs tend to be more expensive than the ones that only kill adult fleas.
Fleas can be a pain to get rid of, especially since they breed so quickly. But with the right fogger, you can tackle the infestation and enjoy a flea-free home once again.
Where Do Fleas Hide?
Some people will assume that simply treating their pets will rid their home of a flea infestation. However, fleas are master hiders. Because there are so many areas around your house that they can hide in, it’s sometimes difficult to get rid of a flea infestation.
In fact, several generations can thrive under the right conditions. It’s important to know which areas of your home fleas are likely to be in, so that you know where to focus your attention during treatment.
Under the right conditions, enough fleas will make it to adulthood. The adult fleas with then continue to lay more eggs and the cycle continues. Before you know it, you’ve got a major infestation on your hands.
Because fleas really love warm, humid areas, check your socks and shoes. These are the perfect moist, warm spots for fleas to hide and thrive in.
Since their eggs don’t have the same stickiness as other insect eggs, they will often fall off the spot where they were laid.
For example, most of the eggs that are laid on your cat or dog will end up falling onto the carpet, bed, or furniture where they like to spend time. Fabrics and carpets create the perfect little spots for eggs to grow and hatch in. (This guide tells which flea carp Best Flea Bombet powder you should use)
Once a female flea reaches adulthood, she can lay around 40 eggs every day. In other words, even just a few fleas brought in from the outside can really cause a problem if their eggs can survive. After hatching, the tiny flea larvae will build their cocoons and begin the pupae phase.
Fibers in fabrics and carpet continue to keep them safe throughout these early life stages. The cushiony safety of the fabrics, combined with the hard outer shell of the egg or cocoon, make it very difficult to destroy them.
However, there are plenty of cracks and crevices that are perfect for eggs and larvae to grow and hatch in.
8 Tips You Need to Know about Flea Bombs
When bringing harsh chemical treatments into your home, it’s important to learn as much as you can about it. To protect your family, home and ensure maximum efficiency, use these tips:
Even if you find a powerful one that penetrates tough spaces, it’s normal for the initial bomb to take out about 80% of the fleas. If you still notice some left after the treatment, first try a few spray treatments. Focus on areas that may have been especially tricky.
If needed, you can deploy another flea bomb about once per week.
That is why you should be sure that your pets are with you or in another safe place while treating. In other words, treat your pet for fleas separately from your home. You can find many forms of pet-safe treatments, either over-the-counter or prescribed by a vet.
There are even medicated shampoos and accessories like flea collars.
Better yet, remove it from the house. In addition, take or tightly seal any kids toys that might be exposed in containers. Kids like to put things in their mouths and need to be especially protected.
Consider taking any houseplants you care about as well. It’s very possible that they will react poorly or even die due to chemical exposure.
Plus, don’t forget to open up any cupboards and cabinets to allow the fog to get into the cracks and crevices that may be housing fleas. If you’re opening any from the kitchen, remember to move or carefully cover any plates, bowls and cups.
Perhaps have them stay somewhere safe for a longer period than everyone else, until items can be properly cleaned and aired out. Another option is to find another means of treating the infestation to avoid asthma attacks or allergic reactions.
When it’s time to activate the bomb, always wear a face mask covering your nose and mouth. You must also keep the fogger far from your face. Remember that the contents of the bomb will come out vertically, so stay to the side of it.
Don’t be discouraged by fleas. Understanding how fleas multiply and all the tricky places they like to hide in will help you get rid of them for good. Remember that it’s important that your flea bomb also has an effect on younger fleas to really prevent recurring infestations.
After all, those eggs and larvae are the difficult ones to get. Avoid wasting your time and money on just any flea bomb by doing plenty of research on the different options. Consider the different ingredients and how they help you as well.
Reading product reviews and learning about other people’s experiences using these treatments will help you decide if it’s the right one for you. Once you’ve decided on a flea bomb, take every precaution necessary to protect your family and items.
Find a safe place for your family and pets to stay in while the treatment is underway. Don’t forget to cover any other sensitive items you may have left behind. Lastly, check and double check that all electronics are shut off.
Flea bombs are really the best option for treating infestations. They can be used in any room of your home and can cover a lot of space as well as hard-to-reach spots.
