Here at Canady’s Termite & Pest Control, we want to help you keep your home as comfortable as possible, and one of the ways that we do that is by offering bed bug control services. As the name suggests, these tiny insects typically nest inside mattresses and other cushions, and their bites leave innocent sleepers with itchy red welts all over their bodies come morning. They reproduce quickly and can go for months between meals, which means that bed bug control can often be a serious challenge.
However, eliminating these pests is not impossible, and our team has the right experience to get rid of them for good. In this article, we’ll go over some key things you need to know about bed bug control so that you have a better idea of what to expect from the process.
Containment is Key.
When it comes to bed bug control, effective containment is one of the keys to success. To round up these insects, you can run your vacuum cleaner over any possible hiding places, including your mattress and bed, but also your dresser, carpets, and even electronics. Then, seal the contents of the vacuum in a plastic bag and throw it out, and thoroughly clean out the vacuum itself to make sure none are left behind. Our team can provide more specific advice on which items are likely to have been contaminated, and how to treat them in order to eliminate that infestation.
Choose Your Treatment Carefully.
The other thing we want you to know about bed bug control is that there are a number of different treatment methods available, some over the counter and some via professional exterminators, and each has its own pros and cons. What works for one case of bed bugs might not work against another, and it takes time and experience to maximize your odds of success. Our team will carefully select the best options for your situation, and use a combination designed to deliver the quick, effective results you deserve.
