Bed bugs are harder to treat than any other household pest for several reasons. Bed bug extermination requires cooperation from both the professional and the home owner. The home owner will be asked to handle their personal items in a specific way; such as washing all clothing from the infected area in very hot water and dry on hot temps. Any items removed from the infected area should be bagged and sealed. The tech will have to be very thorough in the inspection and treatment. He must locate the bugs and their eggs. This means looking behind pictures and window coverings, under bed frames, mattress, box spring, inside dresser drawers, edges of carpet and many other hiding places, all of which will need to be treated accordingly.
The bed bug is not attracted to baits like ants and roaches, so we have to treat them directly. Another issue with the extermination of bed bugs is the fact that they have the ability to build up a resistance to synthetic pyrethroids very quickly. This means you must use a variety of products and techniques to eliminate bed bugs.
Although bed bug removal can be very time consuming and labor intensive, you do not want to let this pest go unchecked. There have been many cases where furniture has to be discarded. This is a very expensive option. With an increasing number of infestations and bed bug bites across the country many people are trying to prevent or eliminate infestations.
