Discovering your home is infested with bed bugs is never good news. Adding insult to injury is the fact that treatment can be costly to completely solve your problem. While professional extermination is the best route to take, there can be vast differences in cost. Understanding your treatment options will allow you to make the most cost effective choices to kill bed bugs.

Why Not DIY?

Trying to do it yourself usually just adds to the cost, as products available to the public are just not the same strong grade as what professionals use. You’ll find that after all the hassle and cost of trying to kill bed bugs yourself, you’ll wind up calling a professional because bed bugs are one of the toughest pests to eradicate.

Why Not Heat?

Many pest control companies promote heat application as the be all and end all of bed bug treatments. While heat can be successful with multiple treatments, there is a very real risk to your belongings when the heat is applied. Heat treatments are very costly money-wise, and they are also costly time-wise, as they require extensive preparations from the homeowner to protect the household furnishings from permanent damage each time there is a treatment. Removing and returning your furnishings increases the likelihood that the bed bugs will spread to other areas of the house as you move your things, and also increases the likelihood that you’ll move the bed bugs right back into the house after the heat treatment. In short, heat treatments will not only sweat extra cash from your wallet, but will drain you of time as you remove your decor from your home.

What Is The Most Cost Effective Treatment for Bed Bugs?

The most cost effective way to eradicate your bed bug infestation requires a targeted treatment approach with the proper placement of materials, and addressing all life stages of the bed bug. The first step must be a thorough inspection by a trained technician to assess the areas and saturation of the infestation, as the bed bugs are usually not confined to one room. (They love to hitchhike and let you take them from room to room before they disembark.) After the inspection, treatment can begin. The first step is vacuuming up any visible bed bugs from beds, couches, pictures, floorboards, etc. Once this is completed, professional grade materials are applied. The perimeter of each affected room is treated, along with every crack and crevice in the furniture. Tiny wall ports are installed to allow treatment in wall voids where many of the bed bugs hide. Finally, specially treated mattress covers are applied to manage whatever stages of bed bugs might remain inside. With the technology available today, there is no need to throw away your mattress after a bed bug infestation.
