Bed Bug Infestation Treatment

Information Regarding Bed Bug Infestation Treatment

Prior to World War II, bed bugs were quite prevalent in society. But following World War II, improved sanitation and the widespread use of DDT worked together to wipe out bed bugs. However lately, bed bugs have experienced a resurgence in today's homes, apartments, hotels and even public transportation. This is partly due to the increased level of immigration and travel from areas where bed bugs are rampant, like parts of Africa, Asia and South America. Bed bugs are so small they can easily stow away in luggage and take up residence wherever said luggage is unpacked.

Bed bugs often live in mattresses, hence the name. This is because they prefer to feed on sleeping humans or animals, and normally live quite close to their feeding ground. Bed bugs feed using a sharp pointed beak that painlessly pierces the skin. The bites may result in welts and bumps that are red, inflamed and itchy. However, some people exhibit no evidence of bed bug bites.

Bed bug infestation treatment is done in a variety of ways. Although you will probably need the services of a professional to eradicate these pests, there are things you can do to help control the problem. Regular vacuuming is a must. You will also want to remove any infested bedding or furniture from your home and clean it with either a vacuum or steam cleaner.

There are certain safe pesticides that can be used to eliminate bed bug problems. Some people choose pesticides made from canola oil and pyrethins, which are flower based extracts. There are a variety of myths centered around bed bug infestation treatment. One such myth is that bed bugs can be eradicated using temperature control. While bed bugs cannot survive in extended conditions where temperatures are extremely hot or cold, this is not thought of to be an effective method of bed bug control because it would take an extended amount of time.

The pest control professional you choose can educate you further on all the ways bed bug infestation can be handled. The level of the infestation as well as your budget and preferences will help determine what method is best for you. You may also be able to find various bed bug infestation treatment ideas online, as well as listings for exterminators who can handle the problem for you.
