Bed Bug Heaters Explains the Types of Bed Bug Pest Control
Dealing with a bed bug infestation is difficult. The stress and physical discomfort of having bed bugs in your home can make you really desperate to find a solution. When it comes bed bug pest control, you have several options. Take some time to consider the details of the different options before you make a decision.
Which one is best? Should you rely on a chemical spray or poison? What about thermal bed bug pest control options? Bed Bug Heaters can help. In today’s blog, we take a look at the options and explain why thermal pest control is really your best choice for eliminating bed bugs.
There is a variety chemical pesticides available for killing bed bugs. In fact, the EPA has so far registered over 300 different pesticide products just for bed bug pest control. There are a few problems with pesticides or insecticides, however.
A big one is that the pesticides are not safe for use on mattresses, which is exactly where you need them the most. They’re also potentially harmful to you if you overuse them, and they are especially harmful for children, pets or anyone with respiratory problems.
Specific Powder Treatments
Powder treatments typically consist of something called diatomaceous earth, which is harmful to bed bugs. Unfortunately, if it’s used in open spaces, it quickly loses its potency. Not only that, but it takes a couple of days to actually take effect on the bed bugs themselves. Combining these two factors makes it extremely difficult to successfully eliminate the infestation, which ultimately means powder treatments just don’t work.
Bed Bug Traps
Bug traps of all kinds can be extremely effective. You can find pre-baited traps for bed bugs and many other household pests in almost any major supermarket. While they are easy to use and they do trap a lot of bugs, there is a problem. All it takes is a single female to avoid the trap and lay more eggs, and you have an infestation all over again. It might work to reduce the bed bug population, but it’s not likely to clear your house once and for all.
A mattress cover specifically designed as a form of bed bug pest control is a pretty good investment for protection. But, if you’re already dealing with an infestation, it’s unlikely to solve it. Bed bugs can survive for weeks without food, and taking the mattress cover off at any point means you may unwittingly just spread the infestation.
Extreme cold and extreme heat are the safest, most consistent ways of eliminating bed bugs completely. Thermal treatment offers an all-over solution that kills both the bugs and their eggs. Thermal treatment also presents no chemical or poison risk to you, your family, your pets or your property.
