06 Feb WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I HAVE BED BUGS IN MY HOME?
Anyone who has experienced a bed bug infestation knows how terrible the experience is: The itchy red bumps, having to get rid of or cleanse furniture. There are many physical and lifestyle complications that bed bugs cause, but they also cause anxiety. You feel a violation of privacy. All you want is to get rid of the problem as soon as possible. If you’re currently experiencing a bed bug problem at home, don’t worry, there is a way to treat the issue! If you have bed bugs in your home, here’s what you need to do.
If You Have Bed Bugs in Your Home, You Have to Eliminate the Source
The most important part of bed bug treatment is treating the source of the issue. Bed bugs can enter your home through a number of sources. They can get into your luggage while you travel. They may find their way inside on your pets. They can also hitch a ride on your clothing. Determining the source of the infestation is helpful, but eliminating that source is what’s most important. If you have clothing items or luggage that you believe may be the source of the infestation, you’ll need to treat or get rid of these items.
Bed Bugs Can Repopulate Quickly If Given the Chance
The reason it’s so important to eliminate the source of your bed bug problem is that bed bugs can repopulate quickly. Just a few bed bugs entering your home can lead to a full-on infestation in a matter of days. Complicating matters is the fact that these bugs are particularly adept at hiding. That makes them difficult to spot and kill. They may disappear for a few days and then reappear while you sleep. If you treat your home for bed bugs but you don’t eliminate the entire population, the bugs can repopulate quickly.
Heat Treatment Is a Clean, Effective Way to Kill Off Bed Bugs
Heat treatment is a clean, effective method to get rid of bed bugs in your home. When bed bugs reach an internal temperature of 113 Fahrenheit or above, they die. That means you can safely heat a space to a terminal temperature for bed bugs without damaging your personal property. Other options for treatment include chemical methods. However, introducing chemicals into your home creates additional risk. The last thing you want is to compound your issues by using harmful chemicals in your living space.
