If you think you have bed bugs, something you will only know for sure if you find bed bug bodies in your home, you may think that all you need is a can of insect spray and maybe a new mattress. Actually, you will need a lot more than that.
The bugs multiply quickly
Did you know that a single female bed bug can lay three or four eggs in just one day? In addition, just one female could lay anywhere between 250 and 500 eggs in her life span.Find out here residential bed bug removal.
Also, bed bugs are very small – the size of an apple seed – and they hide in cracks and crevices that humans cannot reach, like in mattresses, in carpets, and between sheets. Not only that, but even a human eye trained to find the insects can only spot about 30% of them.
That’s why many bed bug detection professionals have a bed bug dug to spot the pests. A certified and trained bed bug dog can find 96% of the critters in your home or place of business. (Yes, the pests infest businesses now – they go wherever people are.) So the first step in getting rid of the unwanted guests is detection – not just determining that you have them, but figuring out where they are in your home.
Variety of removal services
The next step is to remove any furniture or households items infested with them – in homes, this could be the bed, couches, and even carpets, among other places.
Then you need to get the bed bugs out of your home or business for good. And no, a can of bug spray is not going to do the job. You will need to hire a trained professional like the folks at Bed Bug Finders LLC, who offer not just bed bug detection, but bed bug removal.
The way some companies get rid of your bed bug problem these days is via heat treatment. The heat treatment is done via a large tube that comes from a vehicle outside your home that goes into your home or business. It is perfectly safe, and in many cases, you can do it in one visit, without disrupting your home or workplace.
Another treatment method is for the professional to use chemicals to kill the bugs. However, that can have many issues connected with it, including breathing in chemical fumes. No matter what option you choose, but down the bug spray, and call a professional. You will be glad you did.
