    Hi,

    I had a PCO come in to treat my apartment but I'm not sure what to do with the bagged items that are sealed which can't be put into a dryer (ie alarm clock, books, files, electronics etc.). I've read the forum about using DDVP strips to get rid of bed bugs but I can't find information on whether or not it's safe to use with items in a sealed garbage bag. Can DDVP strips be used with electronics? If they can be used for items in a sealed bag, what precautions or process do I need to follow?

    Thank you for your help. Going through a tough time trying to get rid of these horrible bugs.

    Amy

    From my experience, it depends on what your unit was treated with. Mine was treated with Drione dust which will suck them dry via contact. The idea is that they come out to feed (and they def will if they sense food is close by) from wherever they're hiding (alarm clock etc) and come into contact with the dust. So I think there is no need to treat those items directly.

    I could be wrong but that's what was implied by my pest control company.
