Why do I See More Bugs after Pest Treatment?
It’s common to see more insects after pesticides have been applied. The active ingredients in pesticides are made to kill, repel, and prevent larva development. As insects come out of hiding, they will be affected by the applications and not be able to return to their hiding places.
Insects may die immediately, and you’ll see an increase in dead bugs. Alternatively, some insects may experience a slowing down of their life force and not be able to scurry out of sight as quickly. However, these bugs will also die shortly thereafter.
After this initiate increase in bug-sightings, you should experience a bug-free home after pest control treatments.
