A Guide To Total Bed Bug Extermination

An adult bed bug (Cimex lectularius) with the ...

Bed bugs have become problematic throughout Canada. As more immigrants and tourists enter the country from places where these pests are common, bed bugs travel in with their luggage. They take up residence in many hotels and can spread to workplaces when visitors attend conferences or even visit a restaurant. Bed bugs can be found nearly anywhere. However, there are several places they commonly hide once they enter the home.

Finding Bed bug Infestations

Bed bugs often hide along the seams of mattresses. They can also be found under furniture or beds. Some people have found these pests hiding in corners, under rugs or along the edges of carpeted rooms. Some people also notice a musky scent near the site of a bed bug infestation. Many people notice several small red bumps on their skin, which often appear in a row. Although these could also be indicators of other types of bites or skin irritants, they are often bed bug bites when aligned in a neat row.

Exterminating Bed bug Populations

Although there are many home treatments and remedies available on the Internet, it is important to remember that not all products work simply because the site owner makes such claims. Bedbug removal has always been one of the most difficult processes. In decades past, some frustrated homeowners even burned their houses to the ground. However, treatments have improved since those days. The most effective method of completely eradicating these pests is to call a professional bed bug exterminator.

What Professional Bed Bug Exterminators Do

There are a variety of extermination methods used by pest control professionals. The products they use are much more effective than treatments purchased in stores. They use special application methods and have professional tools and devices. Some companies may use all-natural methods or chemical-free substances instead of the more powerful chemicals.

What To Look For In An Extermination Company

It is best to work with a company that has sufficient experience in bed bug removal. A good company will have a service guarantee, which means that customers will receive a refund if the treatments are ineffective. When speaking with an extermination company on the telephone, consumers should ask if treatments are designed specifically for bed bugs. If a company does not provide treatments specifically for this pest and does not offer a satisfaction guarantee, it is better to continue searching for exterminators. Most Canadian extermination companies that have storefronts are legitimate businesses with the proper credentials. Consumers should beware of individuals offering independent extermination services in newspapers or through advertisements. If the person does not represent an established company that can be contacted to verify employment, consumers should avoid such individuals. Reading online consumer reviews from unbiased third-party sites is also a wise idea.

While it is important to eradicate bed bugs as quickly as possible, Canadian consumers should also take the necessary time to hire a reliable exterminator. Hiring the wrong company or individual could be a costly mistake, and bed bug infestations only grow if they are not properly removed.
