Prevention & Treatment
As difficult as it can be to eradicate bed bugs, it makes great sense to take precautions to avoid them in the first place. You should be vigilant when acquiring used furnishings especially beds and couches. Curbside items should be avoided and secondhand articles should be examined closely before being brought into the home and perhaps laundered or placed in a dryer. Avoiding problems with bed bugs is most challenging in apartments, hotels, and other places where there are ongoing opportunities for the bugs to be introduced. Preventative inspection by tenants, housekeeping staff, or pest control firms is the best way to uncover infestations in their initial stages when they are easiest to control. Familiarity can help to avoid infestation, or at least prompt earlier intervention by a professional. The incidence of bed bugs in the United States is increasing to the point where vigilance by all is prudent practice.
Discarded beds & couches might be infested and should be left alone.
What is the most effective treatment for bed bugs?
Answer: As we continue to monitor these above treatments we have not found any to be 100% effective. In using Black Light Inspections (B.L.I.) and proper chemical applications, this method has proven time and again to eliminate populations of bed bugs. This is the only treatment we can warranty at this time.
We know bed bug problems are not going to go away. So we roll up our sleeves, go to work, and get the problem eliminated!
