What To Expect In A Professional Bed Bug Extermination Service Request

Posted on

Most people would like to think that they will never experience a bed bug infestation. However, it is a reality that can happen, and the presence of bed bugs does not necessarily mean that an individual has bad hygiene or housekeeping habits. These notorious bugs have infested schools, fancy hotels, and even resorts. This is why you should not be ashamed if you suspect there are bed bugs in your home. You also should not try to remedy the situation on your own. This can lead to an infestation because bug sprays are usually not effective in bed bug extermination attempts. The following information will help you to understand what is involved in bed bug extermination efforts:


Some people do not realize that they have bed bugs because the bugs hide in dark places such as in furniture or mattresses. They might wake up with unexplained bug bites on them. Another telltale sign is unexplainable blood spots on bedding. Professionals can usually spot bed bug activity in a short period of time because they know what signs to look for. In a severe infestation, live bugs may be seen crawling on linen, rugs, furniture, or mattresses. However, sometimes the bug activity may be obvious due to bed bug carcasses. These pests also shed their skin, which is a process that is referred to as molting. They lay eggs, and professionals will be able to identify the tiny eggs, which are often found in crevices such as those that line mattresses. 

Treatment Selection

Professionals will determine which treatment method(s) to use for your bed bug problem based on what they discover in their inspections. For example, you may have an issue that has the presence of larvae and bed bugs at various stages of maturation. The professional will need to implement treatment methods that get rid of the eggs, larvae, and mature bugs.


Perhaps you are wondering why another inspection is needed after the treatment process is performed. This is necessary because some bugs may survive the initial treatment. An additional treatment may be needed for severe bed bug infestations. If professionals did not perform the second inspection, the bugs would repopulate. 

A bed bug exterminator is a good resource to use to get rid of bed bugs. They can use a variety of techniques to ensure that your home is free of bed bugs. They can also offer valuable tips to prevent future infestations from occurring.
