I know vaccumming is superb in the fight against many pests...I have a bagless-I believe it's a Hoover. Same concept? Empty into a bag and toss outside? Should I clean the hoses somehow? I am not a big cleaner...never have been. I will have to take time off work to seriously clean my downstairs...hard to do with kids at home. And I will be spraying furniture and carpets with Bedlam also.
You can clean out the canister with hot, hot water after each use. The truth about vacuuming is; Unless you are specifically hunting bed bugs and using a crevice tool (and possibly a brush), you will most likely not be vacuuming bugs up during normal cleaning.
I wouldn't worry much about the hoses as long as the machine has good suction and you are doing chemical treatment throughout the place. Just let the vacuum run for 2 minutes after you finish a specific area and then store the vacuum the furthest place from your sleeping and resting areas. Preferable out in an open room.
So, Killer Queen, how can vacuming be used as a "preventative" measure?
or can it?
