On this page, you will learn why it is best to hire a professional exterminator if you are dealing with a bed bug infestation.
Many people believe that they can purchase storebought products from Home Depot or Lowes to get rid of the bed bug infestation.
While they think they are making the best decision, it’s actually the worst possible thing you can do because bed bugs are resistant to storebought chemicals and it will cause them to spread further into your home.
Once a bed bug infestation occurs in a home, people are often looking for quick methods to get rid of the bugs on their own. Many people shy away from the idea to hire a professional exterminator due to the cost of treatment. They initially think they can handle the bed bugs by themselves and save a lot of money in the process.
What usually ends up happening is a large amount of money (and your time/effort) gets spent on various storebought chemicals in an attempt to self-treat-and you end up making no dent in the infestation.
Attempting to handle a bed bug infestation on your own is not a wise decision. You may be surprised to learn some of the many reasons why a professional bed bug exterminator would be the best choice.
Bed bugs are not something easy to deal with for many reasons. For one, you can barely see them because they are a mere 3/16 of an inch in size. In addition, bed bugs produce eggs which may be spread out all over a home, sometimes in locations that one may never think to look or treat.
Bed bugs and their eggs can hide anywhere in a home. As their name implies, their favorite spots are mattresses, sheets, and pillows and basically anywhere in and around your bed. Then there can be bugs hiding in spots such as electrical outlets, under rugs, carpets, and the many cracks and crevices that can be found in any home. Don’t assume that any Average Joe would know about all those places because chances are they do not. A professional exterminator from Phoenix Bed Bug Expert, however, knows all those favorite spots where bed bugs (along with their eggs) might be hiding.
Here is another important fact you should know: While you can buy a plethora of storebought chemicals and pesticides made specifically for bed bugs that claim to be effective, all those products are not even close to the strength and effectiveness of what we use.
What’s worse, some of the products can cause severe health hazards if not applied properly. Always keep in mind that dealing with bug infections means handling poisonous substances. Please read the instruction, and be aware that these poisons can be dangerous to humans and pets when applied improperly!
Not every home has the same layout and not every bed bug infestation is the same. In extreme cases, a bed bug infestation may require several stages but in most cases, only one treatment is needed. The methods we use today range from bed bug heat treatments which will provide instant same-day relief and chemical/pesticide treatments which can take up to 30 days to eliminate an entire infestation.
