What Scent Keeps Bed Bugs Away

Essential OilsBed bugs can be a total nuisance. Once they invade the home, the car, or other environments, they become a complete hassle to remove. This is because most people don’t even realize they’ve been invaded until the numbers of the bedbugs are superior. Even knowing that your environment has been invaded does help that much. Removing these bedbugs can be a hassle period. This is because they are tiny, witty, and can cram themselves into some of the hardest to access places.

Essential oils have been the topic of numerous scientific studies. One specific study conducted by the United States Department of Agriculture was conducted to determine the effectiveness of essential oils as a pesticide.

What the researchers uncovered was truly fascinating. However, like most repellents available today, these scents and oils are only so effective. One should never put all their efforts towards these types of products. This is not to say not to use them, or they aren’t effective. They’ve proven effective, but just don’t rely completely or solely on them. Instead, deploy a variety of deterrent methods.
