Avoiding Bed Bugs
“An Ounce Of Prevention Is Worth A Pound Of Cure.”
Bed bug infestations don’t start with hundreds, thousands or tens of thousands of the pesky critters. Instead, each infestation can be traced to just a few bugs. You can take concrete steps that will help ensure that these few bugs die quickly. Helping prevent them from reproducing and becoming a big problem that bites hard!
Preventing bed bug infestation is often as simple as utilizing the following:
- Mattress Encasements
- Residual Treatment in wall voids
- Residual Treatment in bed frames
- Deadfall Traps
- Active Monitoring
We believe every homeowner should have preventative measures in place. Landlords should take action to preserve their investment and protect themselves from tenant problems by requiring ALL tenants to put in place effective bed bug prevention measures.
Tools to Prevent Bed Bugs
Active Guard Mattress Liners
You are familiar with mosquito nets. This mattress liner is similar it is a treated fabric that is installed on the bottom of your box spring. When bed bugs come in contact with it it they die. Let’s say you bring bed bugs home with you from an overseas trip– the bugs crawl out of your suitcase follow your heat and smell and come looking for a blood meal. The only way to get to you is by first crawling over the liner on the box spring!
Residual Treatments in Wall Voids
If you live in a condo or an apartment with shared walls the application of residual products is essential. Unfortunately, you cannot control what happens in your neighbors unit. But, by hiring a professional bed bug exterminator for a precautionary bed bug treatment you can be confident their bugs won’t become your bugs!
Bed Bug Traps and Active Monitoring
A dead fall trap is a device that is place underneath the legs of your bed. Installing these devices is something home owners and renters should do. These devices prevent the bugs from crawling from the floor on to the bed. Monitoring devices are placed behind and underneath furniture.
Residual Treatment in Bed Frames
Bed bugs got their name because they are usually found on or near beds. Treating the cracks and crevices of your bed frame will make it nearly impossible for them to establish a population.
Mattresses are expensive. Protect your investment with a high quality mattress encasement. A mattress encasement will not only protect your mattress from bed bugs, but also dust mites, allergens, liquid spills and stains
*A preventative treatment costs just $495, plus the cost of equipment and covers.
