You might have heard that it’s impossible to get rid of bed bugs without the help of a pest control company. This isn’t strictly true, however hiring a pest control company will make the process of bed bug extermination smoother and remove the burden of bed bug extermination from your shoulders.
DIY bed bug treatments can effectively get rid of bed bugs, however they typically take time and perseverance on your part. Bed bug extermination is tricky because bed bugs can multiply very rapidly and are resistant to a lot of chemicals, especially ones available for homeowners to purchase at the local store. At-home bed bug extermination techniques such as vacuuming, cleaning your linens in extremely hot water and using mattress covers can get rid of bed bugs without the help of a pest control company. Using these techniques requires dedication, as a one-time DIY bed bug treatment is rarely enough to get rid of bed bugs for good.
The Benefits of Hiring a Pest Control Company
Most homeowners find that hiring a pest control company is easier, and less stressful than trying to get rid of bed bugs on their own.
Pest control companies have access to stronger chemicals and tools (such as heat and freeze treatments), which make bed bug extermination faster, and may even end up saving you money in the long run. Pest control companies can get rid of bed bugs in as little as 1 treatment, however severe or stubborn infestations may require 2 or 3 bed bug treatments spread over a couple weeks.
Many bed bug extermination companies also offer guarantees to ensure the bed bugs are gone for good and don’t return immediately – if the pests do come back within a certain time period, they’ll provide another bed bug treatment free of charge, thus ensuring you get rid of the bed bugs once and for all and don’t have to worry about a resurgence.
