Bed bugs are an introduced household pest that love to hitch a ride on your luggage, and are notoriously difficult to eradicate. Once these bugs have taken up residence inside your household, it’s not long before signs of activity begin. These can include red and itchy bite marks, blood stains on linens, fecal stains around the mattress and boxing as well as visible eggs and live bugs. Once you’ve identified a potential infestation with one of more of these signs, it’s time to call a professional bed bug exterminator to conduct an inspection.
Choosing a Bed Bug Exterminator
Choosing a company to conduct a thorough inspection of your property can be just as important as hiring a company to provide the treatment. Make sure the company you choose is reputable and is familiar with bed bug detection and elimination. Many companies charge for bed bug inspections, feel free to ask questions before scheduling an inspection as well as during the inspection process. Reputable contractors should be able and willing to explain what they’re doing, why they’re doing it and their process to treat your problem.
Once a bed bug infestation is identified, the pest specialist will go over a checklist for preparation in order to prepare the home for professional treatment, as well as provide a quote for service. The cost of professional bed bug control relies on many factors which include the level of infestation, the amount of rooms affected, the size of the home, furniture to be treated as well as method of control. A single room, low level infestation can cost a few hundred dollars, where as a full home extermination can run into the thousands of dollars. Most reputable pest control companies will be hesitant to provide bed bug pricing over the phone until a proper inspection is conducted to evaluate the factors of your particular situation. This is to insure an infestation is present, the correct process can be put into action to achieve elimination and the price is fair for the work to be done for both the client and the company.
Call the Professionals
While there are multiple professional options for elimination that can successfully eliminate an infestation, discovering the origin of infestation is key to prevention. While reputable companies will provide a guarantee of elimination and limited warranty, no treatment can protect a property against future re-introduction. If the origin of infestation can be identified, an inspection and necessary treatment should be applied simultaneously to prevent re-infestation. Because these household pests are extremely adaptable and often resist home remedies and treatments, the fastest and most effective approach for elimination is to call in a trained specialist.
