Throughout the country, infestations of bed bugs are on the rise. Not only do they invade your home, but they bite and actually use human blood to survive. While you're sleeping, bed bugs attack your body, leaving red, irritating bite marks when you wake up the next day.
Bed bugs also leave visible feces in your beds, carpets, and floor. Living in your carpet and mattresses, bed bugs have even led people to move out of their homes just to get away from the insects. Perhaps the most unfortunate aspect of these bugs is the difficulty people have had getting rid of them.
Do you think you're safe? Think again. Bed bugs are spreading across hotels like never before. They can become unwanted souvenirs in your luggage, and leave you with a huge bed bug problem at home.
Several measures need to be taken to eliminate bed bugs from your home. While some people call an exterminator, many professionals only offer a one-time spray that doesn't reach all of the live bed bugs and their eggs. Also, exterminators typically use the strongest level of chemicals approved for commercial use. These chemicals can be harmful to some people and concerning for parents.
Thankfully, there are powerful, safe, and effective bed bug products that you can purchase and apply yourself. However, before buying a bed bug product, there are a few things you should consider:
Product Application. How is the bed bug product applied? Will it harm any of your home furnishings or expensive bedding?
Formulation. Is the bed bug product formulated using strong chemicals? Or is it made of natural alternatives that can equally meet your needs?
Cost. Exterminators can charge hundreds to thousands of dollars for pest elimination. How do these bed bug products compare?
