Things To Avoid Doing When You Have Bed Bugs
Don’t Waste Time Searching The Internet
When you have a bed bug problem, you want to get it taken care of immediately. The longer you wait to get a professional bed bug removal, the more time those nasty critters have to creep and crawl on your bed, your furniture, and worst of all, your body. Plus, if a female bed bug is in her mating stage, the longer you wait to call in the pros, the worse your bed bug problem could become. That being said, don’t waste precious time searching the internet for “bed bug removal near me,” “bed bug treatments near me,” and “bed bug exterminator near me.” Rather, call the pros at A2B Solutions where we use the safest, most effective method for completely eliminating bed bugs in one fell swoop: triple-action heat.
Don’t Rely On Professional Chemical Treatments
When it comes to getting rid of bed bugs once and for all, professional chemical treatments fall short every time. Chemical treatments are not nearly as effective bed bug heat treatments, and here’s why. Bed bug heat treatments have a much greater kill rate, killing bed bugs in all stages of life from an egg to an adult. What’s more, chemical treatments require extensive preparation and numerous treatments over the course of several weeks to several months. Additionally, bed bugs can hide from chemicals, whereas there is no escaping the heat!
While our bed bug removals are completed in 8-12 hours, our friendly, dedicated technicians pay keen attention to detail. Using our triple-heat method, our technicians crank up the heat to 130 degrees — well-above the kill zone of 122 degrees. This allows the heat to penetrate every crevasse of your home, ensuring no bed bug escapes. Furthermore, chemical treatments are hazardous to people, pets, and the environment, whereas heat is not. Heat beats chemicals every time.
Do Not Move Items From Room to Room
If you find bed bugs in one bedroom, do not move items from that room into another. Moving your belongings from one infested room to another can contribute to the spread of bed bugs to other areas of your home. While it’s hard to tell if bed bugs are localized to just one room without having a bed bug inspection, leaving potentially infested items in the room where you know bed bugs have taken over can prevent further spreading.
