The Process of Bed-Bug Treatment

by Letitia Hunt

If you believe that you may have a problem with bed bugs, then it is going to be in your best interest to contact your local pest-control company to have them send out a professional. Doing this will ensure that the issue is properly diagnosed and treated in the best and safest way possible. Since dealing with bed bugs is no joke, you want to make sure that you find an effective way to get rid of the bugs and stop them from spreading to other beds and other places within your home. This article will discuss the process of bed-bug treatments


Since you aren't 100% sure whether it is bed bugs that is your problem, the pest-control worker is going to come to your home and do a full evaluation. This evaluation will allow them to see whether you do in fact have bed bugs located anywhere in your home and whether your mattresses are infested with them. If they find that you do have an issue, the workers will then discuss the steps needed to move forward. On the other hand, if they do not find that bed bugs are a problem, you likely won't have to pay for anything, since the consultation is likely going to be free in either case.

Removal of Visible Bed Bugs

Before any chemicals or other forms of treatment are used on the bed bugs, the pest-control specialist is going to remove any and all visible bed bugs. This is simply done to help reduce the number of bed bugs that the chemicals are required to kill. It is also a great way for the pest-control specialist to see exactly what species of bed bugs have invested your home so that they can best treat the rest of them or warn others about this potential issue. 

Chemical Extermination of the Bed Bugs

To ensure that all of the bed bugs are killed, the pest-control company is going to use chemicals to kill them. Different chemicals may need to be used in order to kill all of the bed bugs because you may be unsure of what bugs have built up a resistance to what chemicals. However, because the work of the pest-control specialist is guaranteed, you know that they are going to keep coming back until all of your bed bugs are taken care of.
