Pest Control for Bed Bugs, a Professional Job!

Act quickly to avoid spread of bed bugs

MARILYN LINCOLN, Special to QMI Agency
It has been three months since I discovered bed bugs have invaded my condo townhouse. I have spent $700 on a pesticide company and still have the problem. I am a spotless housekeeper so this cannot be my fault. I am afraid to go to sleep at night because of the bites. My life has become a nightmare. My family and friends won't visit. When I first discovered the bed bugs I thought they came from one of the adjoining townhouses on either side of me. However, my neighbors had no signs of bed bugs but became very alarmed regarding my situation. The condo management has informed me that is my duty to get rid of these bed bugs before they spread. What more can I do? Please help. I am at the end of my rope.
When parents tucked their children into bed years ago the old saying was: "Sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite." Once thought to be eradicated after the Second World War, bed bugs are making a huge comeback.
Pesticides such as DDT were once used to control bed bugs, but concerns about health and the environment led to many of these pesticides being banned.
Bed bugs can originate from various sources. Some common places are infested furniture in hotels, motels and carried around in the luggage of travelers. They have made there way into libraries, hospitals and movie theatres.
No matter how clean you are, if someone brings bed bugs into your home they will spread quickly.
Bed bugs feed on blood not on trash. They bite exposed skin and leave behind small, red, itchy welts. They can cause serious emotional problems for people who can't get rid of them.
Bed bugs are big enough to be seen. They hide under mattresses and in the seams, in and around bed frames, along any cracks or peeling paint in the wall, picture frames, wooden furniture, behind baseboards, in carpets, behind wallpaper.
Once you discover bed bugs, time is of the essence before a huge infestation occurs. READ MORE about Bed Bug Pest Control
