    This is a quote from the NY times that I find to be untruthful , But is it???

    This was posted by stricken 2 days ago I cut this out of the article, Thanks stricken

    "Whatever an exterminator uses, it must directly contact a bed bug to kill it. Pesticides have no residual effect on bed bugs "

    There is no residual BB Pesticides , Is this true or is the NYT not being truthful or bad reporting ???

    Bad reporting

    There are studies showing resistance to various products .... but it is inaccurate to say that residual products do not work.

    Not a correct quote I'm sure. But it is true that the importance of bed bug control as a contact sport must not be underestimated. There is quite often a void between what a person says and what gets written. They try to become an expert in several phone calls and then try to paint a story with good sound bites. "As you all know , you just can't believe everything you see and hear now, can you?"
