Bed bugs are one of the most difficult pests that pest management professionals are asked to eradicate. They are cryptic, finding harborage in sites difficult to locate and treat. These parasites live around and in and on personal items.
Remember these tips when you approach a bed bug infestation:
⦁ Commit to eliminating the infestation as if you were in your own home. A “good” effort is not enough.
⦁ Bed bug service is hard work. Have enough personnel to move furniture and items to get access to deep bug harborages.
⦁ Heat plus insecticides work. Today’s formulations can endure exposure to temperatures generated by heat treatments, which make a winning combination.
