3 Reasons Why You Need an Exterminator Company to Treat Bed Bugs

It’s easy to dismiss the idea of bed bugs as a part of a sweet and familiar childrens’ saying, almost like they’re a made-up threat to keep kiddos tucked in their beds at night. The reality of bed bugs, however, is much more grim. Not only do bed bugs feed off the blood of animals or humans, these pests can invade a bed, a room, a home, or even an entire hotel quickly, and they’re extremely difficult to eliminate once they’ve settled in. There are many reasons why bed bug extermination is a job for the professionals, but we’ve highlighted a few in detail below.

Professional Treatment Is the Most Effective Treatment

Once you’ve established you have a bed bug problem by identifying signs of an infestation, it may be tempting to try to get rid of the bugs on your own, but employing the usual methods of extermination will likely not be enough. While cleaning sheets, bedding, and any dark location where bugs could be hiding may seem like it’s done the trick, odds are you won’t be able to fully rid your home of bugs, and the ones you don’t see will reproduce and reinfest quickly. A professional exterminating company will employ methods to help wipe out bed bugs.

The Longer You Wait, the Harder it Gets

Waiting to see if you’re able to fix your bed bug problem can prove to be a frustrating and costly mistake. There are many resources available with DIY bed bug extermination advice, and while it’s natural to want to feel proactive and hope for the best, putting off the services of an exterminator company will only make it more difficult to fully rid your home of bed bugs in the long run. Allowing professionals to take care of your problem early is the best and most effective way to get rid of your infestation as quickly as possible.

Sharon P, Waterproofing & Repair

We had extensive water intrusion that our inspector did not see. Thompson Brothers had to engage in grading, extensive digging, reinstallation of French drains, and install a new drainage field. The work was excellent. All personnel is polite, on time, and very professional. Highly recommend.
