Most of us know that, if there are bed bugs around, they are a pest that can be very problematic. What most people don’t know, however, is that bed bugs can be found everywhere, including homes and businesses that are meticulously cleaned.
There are a few signs that there is a bed bug infestation you need to address, such as finding itchy bites on your skin that you didn’t have before sleeping, finding bed bug shells that have been shed on your bed sheets, or smelling a musty odor on your mattress due to bed bug excrement.
If you know that there is a bed bug problem, you might feel inclined to try to apply your own bed bug treatment. While you may have limited results with this action, it’s important to note that bed bug treatment isn’t always that simple. Bed bugs don’t just infest your mattress and other bedding, they can also hide in all of the areas around your bed, including in books, drawers, clothing, cracks, and crevices. Even though you may have thoroughly vacuumed your mattress and washed all of your bedding on high heat, bed bugs can still find their way back to your newly cleaned materials. Bed bugs can even re-infest a brand new mattress if you have tossed out the old one!
Most bed bug treatment solutions are best done with chemicals, but you don’t want to choose just anything. The wrong chemicals used for bed bug treatment could also offer a dangerous living environment for your family members and pets. That’s why it’s so important to call in a pest control company that knows how to handle bed bug treatment the right way.
