Good night, Sleep Tight...Don't Let the Bed Bugs Bite!
This is a saying that many of us grew up saying at night as our parents tucked us in without realizing that this could be a reality. Currently, many families in Western Montana and around the world, are realizing that the nightmare of bed bugs has invaded their home or place of business.
If you think that you may have bed bugs, here are a few things to remember:
- Don't panic! Unfortunately, the negative stigma that surround bed bugs cause people to go into panic mode. Keep in mind, all bed bug issues, regardless of the severity of infestation, can be taken care of by a licensed pest control professional.
- Don't run to your local department or hardware store and load yourself up with over-the-counter pest control products and bed bug traps. You will waste your hard earned money and will prolong the process, potentially making your bed bug issue worse in the long run. Call a licensed pest control professional.
- If you find an insect in your home or business, don't automatically assume that it is a bed bug. People confuse carpet beetles, bat bugs, roaches and stink bugs for bed bugs frequently. It is always best to get the opinion from a professional that is trained in knowing the difference!
Heat treatments for bed bugs is not always the answer!
Companies that perform heat treatments to eradicate bed bugs want you to believe that heat is the end all, be all for bed bugs. We are here to tell you that this simply isn't the truth. There are many great chemicals on the market that are designed specifically to kill bed bugs. The best thing about getting a chemical treatment is that it will leave your home and furniture with a residual that will protect from future infestations. Not only can a heat treatment be costly and damaging to your home, it isn't always effective the first time and it leaves no protection in place for future bed bugs that could be brought in.
We frequently meet families that have spent their hard-earned money on costly heat treatments that have failed. We correct these situations with our bed bug treatment method and these customers wish that they would have called Bed Bug Solutions first! Don't waste your money!
Here are a few videos of customers that were heat treated numerous times prior to us eradicating their bed bugs for good! As you will see, they were still infested with bed bugs after their heat treatments.
