    If you actually do KNOW something about the subject to be true or false, say it. Speculation serves little or no purpose at all on this forum.

    I'm going to actually purchase a wand that claims to work. Since I have bugs to test, I'll let you know how many perish with UV and how many survive, and the time it takes for each to happen. I'll test it on spiders, ants, anything that crawls except little babies. Stay tuned.

    The UV approach is a pass over from the dust mite products. While UV will work to control dust mites it does little to help the build up of their droppings which actually causes the skin reaction.

    I have tested UV and bed bugs both in terms of killing and detection and have found unsatisfactory results from both applications.

    I suspect the only way you could have an effect is with a large enough dose rate to cause mutations in the DNA, such levels would also be unhealthy for people.

    Hope that helps.

Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bed bug infestations. I also have a professional relationship with PackTite in that they distribute my product under their own branding.
