December 24, 2019

Do you have a bed bug infestation? Have you seen these bugs crawling around inside your home or have you noticed bites on your skin? How do you know if you have been bitten by bed bugs? It can be tough to tell bed bug bites from the bites of other insects. Are you aware that bed bugs bite multiple times and that their bites often look like they follow a path across the skin? If so, you may be able to tell that you have a bed bug infestation by recognizing their bite patterns. Another way to tell you have a bed bug infestation is to look for warning signs, such as black streaks, black patches, tiny white eggs, shed insect skins or brown patches created by dried bloodstains. Have you seen any of these signs? If so, it is time to take the next step and do something about those bugs.

What is a good way to get rid of bed bugs?

Your first thought may be to try and rid your home of bed bugs with DIY bed bug control. We understand. While bed bugs are disturbing pests to deal with, you may have many reasons why you would prefer to deal with them yourself. Sadly, bed bugs are nearly impossible to eliminate on your own. These are insects that live almost entirely with humans. They've been doing this since the dawn of human civilization. Some scientists believe that they may have been in caves with us, if you can believe that. If bed bugs were easy to get rid of, these frustrating and tormenting pests would be extinct by now. The reason they aren't is that they have behavior patterns that help them elude extermination. If you attempt to get rid of bed bugs on your own, you are setting yourself up for a long nightmare. The wise way to deal with bed bugs is to hire a licensed and experienced pest control professional.

How Professional Bed Bug Control Works

Professionals use a few different strategies for eliminating bed bugs. The most expensive treatments deal with an infestation in the entire structure. Large tents are erected and a home is fumigated to eliminate the bugs, or expensive equipment is brought in to warm the temperature of the entire home. While effective, these methods won't be friendly to your pocketbooks. At Lindsy Pest Services, we use heat in a more targeted way and help you keep your bed bug extermination costs as low as possible.
