Removal- What Really Works When It Comes to Bed Bugs Removal?

If you think you may have bed bugs, it is important that you use safe and effective methods of treating the bugs. If you don’t, you could end up having something worse than bed bug infestation.

Don’t try this at home
According to a study by the U.S. Center for Disease Control, at least 80 people have gotten sick trying to treatthe pests themselves with over-the-counter chemicals over the past three years. One person even died after she used 18 cans of bug spray in her home, without having proper ventilation.

Not only have people have gotten sick from doing the wrong things in treating bed bugs themselves, but some have even damaged their homes doing so with using things like rubbing alcohol to treat the insects, with more than one fire being caused from various over-the-counter treatments for bed bugs removal.

There is a better way for bed bugs removal

You may be able to treat things like roaches yourself, without calling in trained professionals. But don’t do this with bed bugs. First of all, you may not know for sure that you have them, and where they are. That’s why you should call in a bed bug expert who, with the help of a bed bug dog, can determine if you have the pests in the first place.

Then, if you do have bed bugs, a bed bug expert who is experienced in the best practices for getting rid of the insects can eliminate the problem safely and efficiently, and work with you to make sure that the bugs do not come back again.

Professionals use a variety of methods for bed bugs removal
Some such pest management professionals use chemicals, some use freezing treatment, and some use heat treatment or steam treatment to remove the bed bugs.

Whatever type of company you hire, or treatment they use, to inspect your home or business, it is important that the company follows the best practices that the National Pest Management Association recommends.

In addition, you should consider companies that are certified by the IBBMA — the Integrated Bed Bug Management Association – they have stringent procedures that make sure that the people – and the dogs – they certify are up to snuff.

Make sure that you deal with a company that will treat your issue discreetly – you don’t want to alarm your neighbors. You also want to make sure that the business has insurance to cover any issues.

Also don’t go with a company just because they offer the lowest price. You want to make sure to get rid of the bugs, so go with the business that can best do that.
