Remove Bed Bugs Professionally
Bed bugs prove themselves time and time again to be a very challenging pest to defeat. Customers and potential customers anticipate that their favorite pest control specialist will provide some magical remedy that rids their home or business of bed bugs. The reality is there are a number of reasons why no magical remedy exists. First, a one-time treatment – whether done personally or professionally – only destroys the bed bugs that are visually seen and treated directly at the time. Second, bed bugs and their eggs are resistant to many synthetic treatments. Third, beg bugs don’t care about cleanliness or uncleanliness; but a structure that is cluttered will provide much more hiding spots for bed bugs. Things like electronic equipment, stuffed animals, closed boxes, and books cannot be treated with synthetic treatments, so this provides the bed bugs with even more places to hide.
Structural tent fumigation is the most successful remedy for ridding a property of bed bugs. However, even tent fumigation will be deemed useless if the occupant(s) of the property leave the property during fumigation with an item (e.g., clothing, overnight bag, backpack, etc.) that has just one pregnant female bed bug hiding in it. The occupant(s) then return to the structure after fumigation and the re-infestation begins all over again. So, even when tent fumigation is used, extreme precautions on the occupant(s)’ part are needed so no live bed bugs re-enter the structure post the fumigation process.
Bed bugs have been around for a long time and they won’t be going anywhere soon. If you believe you may have a bed bug infestation, the greatest recommendation is to obtain a professional’s help to destroy the entire infestation – permanently – in a manner best suited to you and your property. In the meantime, here are a few frequently asked questions about bed bugs.

Will I get a disease from a bed bug bite?
No. Unlike other insects and pests, bed bug bites are not known to carry or spread disease. Be wary though, about using a bed bug bite as a first sign of infestation because everyone reacts differently to bed bug bites. Some people never show any physical signs after a bed bug bite; for others, a bite from a bed bug may not appear for as long as two weeks; while still others go to the opposite extreme and quickly develop an allergic reaction or such.
What are the signs of a bed bug infestation?
Prior to physical evidence of bed bugs bites on the body, dark red blood spots may be seen on the mattress or any adjacent furniture. These blood spots are the result of defecation while feeding. People with a keen sense of smell may notice a sweet, kind of musty odor around the bed and/or bedroom; this is another sign of bed bugs. Bed bugs shed their skin as they grow, so finding tiny yellowish skins around is a sign as well.
Of course, visually seeing bed bugs is a sure method for determining a bed bug infestation. However, because of their ability to hide so well, seeing bed bugs during the day may be a challenge. Instead, use a flashlight late at night and check the places where bed bugs may be hiding: mattress seams, on headboards, behind picture frames on the wall, in the cracks of peeling wallpaper, along baseboards, and other crevices near where the bed is located.
What is the best way to rid my property of bed bugs?
Bed bug infestations are a challenge to completely destroy. Whether choosing to try a synthetic or non-synthetic method of removal on one’s own: Time, patience and effort are required. There is an abundance of information on the Internet about permanently destroying a bed bug infestation. Folks can also call their favorite pest control company for information about do-it-yourself remedies. Be advised, however, that a professional bed bug elimination and control plan is highly recommended.
