    Bed Bugs

    Tips to Prevent or Control Bed Bugs
    1. Don't Panic – Bed Bugs can be difficult to eliminate, but not impossible. Don't throw out all of your things because most things can be treated and saved.

    2. Think through your treatment options – Don't immediately reach for a spray can. Try other things first. Integrated Pest Management uses numerous techniques to limit your contact with pesticides. Always follow label directions or hire a professional.

    3. Reduce hiding places by cleaning up clutter. Use an encasement to cover your mattress and box springs. Leave in place for 18 months. This is one case when a quality product is important.

    4. Regularly wash and heat dry your sheets, blankets, bedspreads and any clothing that touches the floor.

    5. Do- it –yourself freezing is not a reliable method for bed bug control.

    6. Kill bed bugs with heat, but be careful, this is one method where it is best to call in a professional.

    7. Don't pass your bed bugs onto others. Bed Bugs are hitchhikers! If you throw out mattresses or furniture, slash it so someone else doesn't pick it up and take it to their home.

    8. Reduce the number of bed bugs to reduce bites. Vacuuming carefully and changing the bag after every use. Seal the bag in plastic and throw away outside in a garbage bin.

    9. Turn to professionals if needed. Make sure they are a reliable company with a good reputation. Shop around because prices vary greatly between companies and the services they offer.
