Some Bed Bug Exterminator Tips For Post-Treatment
Bed bug removal is the hot-button topic when it comes to pest extermination, but nobody talks about what to do after your bed bug exterminator has finished the treatment. Like with any pest problem, something drew the bed bugs to your home, and there is the possibility that they will come back. As such, it is just as important to prevent bed bugs from returning as it is to eliminate them in the first place.
In today’s post, the bed bug exterminators at Bed Bug Heaters will give some tips for how to keep your home bed bug free after your initial treatment.
Keep A Close Eye On Pets
If you have a pet, especially a dog or a cat that stays outside most of the day, there is a good chance that they brought in your bed bug infestation. Once you get rid of your bed bug infestation thanks to a bed bug exterminator, it’s important to bathe your dog and ensure that they are also clean. As time passes, you should continue to regularly clean your dog and make sure that they aren’t bringing in bed bugs.
Be Careful When Traveling
If you don’t have pets, but you travel a lot for work or leisure, that also might have been what brought bed bugs into your home. When you sleep in hotels regularly, there is no guarantee that you won’t be exposed to bed bugs, which means that you can just as easily bring them home with you. When you get home from a trip, immediately wash all of your dirty clothes instead of letting them sit in the dirty laundry bin. This will ensure that any bed bugs you brought home with you are killed before they spread through your house.
Keep Your Sheets And Bedding Clean
Lastly, when you finally get rid of bed bugs, it can be easy to get lazy and forget to clean your sheets and bedding. Dirty sheets and bedding is often a safe haven for bed bugs, especially if you or your pet is what is bringing them in. The best preventative measure for keeping your home bed bug free is to clean your sheets, pillowcases and bedding regularly. It’s also vital to heat dry your bedding, rather than hang dry them.
