What to Expect From Bedbug Treatment, Milford, Connecticut

Learning whether the problem stems from these critters may ensure you’re really facing an infestation and not making an unnecessary investment. To help you tackle a potential infestation, here’s a guide to the steps involved in solving this issue.

What’s the Procedure for Bedbug Removal?

Making Sure It’s Bedbugs

bedbug removalIf you’re spotting red spots your skin when you wake up, you may wonder whether you have bedbugs. Since mosquito and bedbug bites are similar, you’ll want to be sure you have an infestation before you call a pest control company. Inspect your mattress for rust-colored spots and dark dots, which are signs of bedbug feeding and excrement. Check all crevices, since they may be as small as 2 millimeters. They also produce a smell that can be identified by trained animals.

Removing Colonies

The two most popular options for bedbug removal are heat treatments and pesticides. During heat treatments, the affected items are placed in containers that reach temperatures above 117 degrees Fahrenheit, killing colonies. However, this may not be suitable for delicate furniture and fabrics like silk and leather. Pesticide treatments, typically used to sanitize a whole home, rely on several forms of low-toxicity insecticides. For example, a spray may be used to treat baseboards and target bedbug eggs to prevent more from hatching.
