Top 4 Bed Bugs Myths

We live in a generation of DIY’s. Trying to figure out a way to make things ourselves without spending so much money. However, when it comes to getting rid of bed bugs those bed bug treatments should be left to the professionals. There are several bed bug myths and myths about bed bug treatments.

The first myth is any product that kills bugs will get rid of bed bugs. Not so. There are products that might kill those bed bugs but bed bugs might flee into the tiniest crack in the wall, behind molding, or inside mattresses. The chemicals inside these products will not reach the areas where the bed bugs hide. The second myth is that if you leave your homes for a few days then bed bugs wont survive since they wont have anything to feed on. That is incorrect. Some bed bugs can last months without feeding and still survive. The third myth is that you can’t get bed bugs from your neighbors or from anywhere else. You can get bed bugs even when you are in vacation. You may get bed bugs in your suitcase and bring them home with you. You can use a free public data base called, “The Bed Bug Registry” where you can search for bed bug reports and these reports let you know whether the hotel you are staying in had beg bugs in the past. The last bed bug myth we will write about today is if you have bed bugs in your home then you can turn up the heat inside your home to kill them. If you are not a professional, this is very unsafe to do so. Heat treatment is a very successful way to eliminate bed bugs in your environment, however just because you are heating up your home it is not considered a heat treatment.

A heat treatment to get rid of bugs when done by trained technicians, heat treatment is an effective, safe, and environmentally friendly method. This method is very versatile and can be used to get rid of bed bugs that are in an entire structure or in specific areas. Since no chemicals are used while using heat the technicians can go inside the area and monitor the home. Heating your home without any assistance from a highly trained technician can cause a fire hazard in your home. Hiring an experienced pest control professional will increase your chance of having a scratch free environment and getting rid of those bed bugs.
