Can A Pest Control Specialist Get Rid Of Bedbugs In One Visit?
With the right tools, a pest control specialist can remove bedbugs in one visit. If you think you have bedbugs, it’s best to call a pest control specialist as soon as possible to keep the infestation from spreading.
It’s no secret that bedbugs are nasty and gross! Nobody wants to think of little insects crawling on them while they sleep! Getting rid of them as quickly as possible is always the goal, but there are a lot of DIY resources that are providing unhelpful and harmful information on how to get rid of bedbugs.
Instead of wasting your time and resources, trying to find a solution that works, contact a pest control specialist right away. Pest control specialists have seen numerous bedbug infestations and know the “ins-and-outs” of removing them fast – sometimes in one day if the infestation is caught soon enough.
One of the biggest mistakes people make is trying to remove bedbugs themselves instead of calling a pest control specialist. Infestations grow quickly, making it hard to keep the infestation localized and making it even harder to remove them. Most people try to deal with bedbugs in the same way they deal with other pests – with over-the-counter sprays and poisons; this will not work!
Bedbugs are immune to most poisons a person would use in this situation, and even when the chemicals do their job, there are always survivors. The survivors left alive find somewhere to hide until the chemicals are less intense, or develop an immunity, and then they’re right back to breeding again! Even when the treatments do work, they take much longer than a day to operate thoroughly.
People also assume that once the bedbugs are entirely gone, they don’t have to worry about repeat infestation. Unfortunately, new bugs can always get in, and trained pest control specialists will give you advice on what you can do to prevent another infestation and even provide maintenance services that will keep them outside of your home.
That said, the most important tip for dealing with bedbugs is simple: contact a professional. Pest control specialists are trained in identifying and dealing with bedbug infestations. There are reports of people getting hurt or worse trying to deal with bedbugs on their own – it simply isn’t worth the risk!
What Can A Pest Control Specialist Do For Bedbugs?
A well-trained pest control specialist will be able to treat your bedbug infestation within a day, removing their ability to reproduce or survive. While there are insecticides and other treatments specially designed to target bedbugs, the best and most effective treatment is heat treatment. The bugs can only thrive in certain conditions, so professional pest control specialists use their tools to heat an area (usually the whole room) beyond the point of bedbug tolerance.
* Make sure all your pets and heat-sensitive belongings are out of the room before the treatment starts!
At a temperature of 113 F (45 C), it takes 15 minutes to kill off all adults and nymphs, and 60 minutes to kill off all eggs. Just a little warmer, at 115 F (46 C), all stages of bedbugs will be exterminated in a matter of 7 minutes!
