If you have been looking for information on bed bugs, then you have come to the right place. Unfortunately, bed bugs are all over the place. They are just about everywhere, except in the more cosmopolitan cities like Los Angeles and New York City. Not only do bed bugs take to your mattresses, they can even travel with you from room to room in your own personal home.
There are several signs that your home has bed bugs. The first one is obvious: you will commonly find brownish or reddish spots on the mattress, the upholstery, bedding, furniture, etc. In more extreme cases, the bugs can manifest themselves in full-blown infestations by the dozens! The second sign that you should be looking for is crevices. Bed bugs can and will manifest themselves in crevices, especially around the seams of furniture.
Here’s how to get rid of a bed bug infestation: first, find your problem area. The best way to do this is by looking in your general direction. If you see brown spots on the upholstery, then your in luck. If not, try to go in that direction next. When you find your problem area, then you need to search for your infested furniture.
If you have an apartment, or a condominium complex, then you have two choices for dealing with a bed bug infestation. One option is to deal with the issue yourself, and see what you can do yourself. The other option is to contact your landlord, or your building’s management company, and see if they can help you get your landlord to get in touch with the pest control company. Remember, many building owners will do whatever they can to keep their building sanitary, including exterminating the tenants.
If you’re dealing with an individual tenant, then it’s a little more difficult, because most people aren’t going to call the pest control Phoenix company. However, there are some tactics you can use to rid yourself of the bugs. First, if you have an entire mattress that is infested, then you can take it to a local dumpster and pour out the bugs and their eggs. You’ll have to be sure that you get rid of the eggs before you throw the mattress in the dumpster, so make sure that you take it directly to the dumpster in advance. Once you’ve gotten rid of the mattresses, then you should vacuum the whole mattress to get rid of the remaining eggs.
Once you’ve finished vacuuming the mattress, you should take a new mattress outside and leave it outside until the eggs dry up. Once the eggs dry up, then you can simply vacuum it. Getting rid of a bed bug infested mattress shouldn’t be difficult, but it does require some patience and organization on your part. It may take some time, but in the end it will be worth it when you’re not dealing with an unsanitary bed.
