Perfecting Pest Control

If you don't like pests setting up shop in your home, you might be interested in hiring a professional exterminator to help you with your problems. However, unless you understand the tools that they are working with, you might find yourself wondering what else you can do to curb issues. For example, if you don't mention that mosquito problem, your exterminator might not know to treat that water feature with a pesticide that targets larvae. My site explains different ways you can prepare for your professional pest control treatment, so that you aren't left with issues later down the road.

Have Bed Bugs? What You Need To Do


If you've spotted these little critters in your home, either alive or dead, it's important to take action immediately. These pests can and will take over your home if you just ignore them, and they are not going to leave your house on their own -- you have to get rid of them. Read on for tips on what to do if you've spotted bed bugs in your home.

Start Cleaning

Bed bugs don't really care if your house is clean or dirty, they can invade just about any home; but if you have a lot of clutter laying around, it's important to clean up this clutter and get up as much as you can off of the floor. Then start cleaning your home.

Vacuum your house from top to bottom, including mattresses and furniture. Bed bugs can be all over your home, even on the furniture in your living room. Be sure to empty the canister into a plastic garbage bag outside of your home, tie it tightly, and toss it in the trash can immediately.

Wipe down hard surfaces such as furniture, counters, baseboards, walls, light fixtures, blinds, and wall decor. Wipe down these surfaces with a bleach/water solution, killing any bugs you find.

Bedding should be washed in the hottest water setting you have on your machine and dried in the hottest setting as well. Anything that cannot be washed should be placed into a plastic bag and sealed for a few days to kill off any live bugs. Store the plastic bags in the garage and out of your house.

Invest In Mattress Covers

To prevent bed bugs from getting back into your bed, place your mattresses in mattress bags that will kill bed bugs and prevent them from coming back into your bed. You can find mattress covers at your local big box or mattress stores. These covers will kill any bugs left on your mattress and protect the mattress from bed bugs invading your bed again. Be sure to cover the box spring as well, and cover your pillows with protective covers.

Call A Professional

Hire a professional pest control company to have your home sprayed to kill any bugs you have left in your home. Bed bugs can be difficult to get rid of, so if they're all over your home you need to hire a professional to help you get rid of them as soon as possible.

Bed bugs are pesky insects that can leave you with welts and itchy bumps all over your body. Get rid of these bugs by taking action as soon as you spot them in your home. Call a professional pest control company like Arab Termite and Pest Control for more information.
