Gary Marcucci, a technical sales representative with Residex, says there is no silver bullet to kill bedbugs.

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. (CBS) – Local exterminators and property managers gathered Monday to share notes in the battle against bedbugs.

“We’re steaming ‘em. We’re freezing them. We’re heating them. We’re doing everything we can to get rid of them,” said Gary Marcucci.

Marcucci, a technical sales representative with Residex, a firm that distributes pest control supplies, says there is no silver bullet to kill bedbugs.

Residex arranged a meeting at the Mount Laurel Marriott where 200 exterminators discussed new bedbug control strategies.

Marcucci explains one is an insecticide that keeps bugs from hitching a ride on your travel bags.

“One of the biggest is our luggage spray,” said Marcucci, adding, “I’m touting it as a stocking stuffer this year!”

If you see bedbugs or their droppings, Marcucci suggests the best course of action is to contact a professional.
