Kill Bed Bugs – Bed bugs are nasty and the thought of tiny insects crawling across your body while you sleep looking to suck the blood out from under your skin is enough to send chills up and down your spine. If your reading this chances are you or someone you know is caught up in a nightmare infestation and you want to know how to kill bed bugs.
These micro size blood sucking insects are crafty and even seasoned exterminators can have difficulty exterminating these pests. Even full grown adult bedbugs are small in size and often difficult to see with the human eye. Before becoming adults they start out as translucent eggs and have little color to their body, until that is, they have their first blood meal. Full grown adults are similar in size and color as an apple seed.
Part of the difficulty in exterminating these critters is their small size, nesting habits and nocturnal nature. Understanding their habits is critical if you want to kill bed bugs. Bedbugs are small and seemingly flat. This allows them to nest in the smallest of places. Small cracks and holes in and around places people consistently sleep make ideal nesting locations. These same locations are difficult to get products into for extermination purposes. It’s even a challenge to get heat and/or cold into these areas for natural extermination methods.
If you want to effectively kill bed bugs most exterminators will advise to hire an experienced professional. If your first priority is to save money, followed closely by “I want the problem to go away,” hiring a professional may the most cost effective way to eliminate the problem and keep it from coming back.
Just as most Doctors are not the same and may have their own specialty that rule holds true for exterminators. Consumers looking to hire just any exterminator to kill bed bugs are often better served taking on the job themselves. Using strong pesticides haphazardly, while it may kill some bugs, can make the problem worse and needlessly expose a household to strong chemicals.
At best inexperienced exterminators spraying strong chemicals may provide temporary relief before the problem resurfaces. This usually results in repeated treatments, repeated costs and will end somewhere down the road with a frustrated consumer looking for another exterminator. Consumers can save the cost of paying an inexperienced exterminator by spraying strong pesticides themselves. Unfortunately this approach usually leads to repeated treatments before getting to the point of frustration that they hire a professional.
