Why Hire A Professional For Bed Bug Infestations
June 14, 2019
It is that time of year again when bed bug infestations seem to be popping up in homes all over the United States. As summer vacationers travel through public places, stay in hotels, and use public transportation, they have many opportunities to pick up bed bugs and carry them home. Bed bugs must feed on the blood of a host to survive, which is why they use summer travelers to hitchhike to locations where they can feed and reproduce. These parasitic insects infest more properties during summer due to frequent traveling and warmer temperatures. Once bed bugs have been brought into your home, it doesn’t take long for them to hide, breed, and thoroughly infest your property.
Why DIY Solutions Fail
For many homeowners, it can be easy to turn to DIY solutions when dealing with a bed bug invasion. Unfortunately, the “quick and easy hassle-free” DIY solutions you may find online are usually not as effective they claim. Many DIY tips and tricks are time-consuming, costly, frustrating, and ineffective. And even if DIY solutions work for a little while, they usually lack the effectiveness and longevity of professional bed bug control services. Bed bugs reproduce quickly and have a knack for hiding, which makes identifying where bed bugs are hiding in your home a difficult task. Additionally, bed bugs are resistant to many types of natural remedies and pesticides.
