Some people believe that they can solve their bedbug problem with a 1/2 empty dented aerosol can of generic “Bug Killer” from the local discount dollar store. Maybe they can but chances are, they will fail badly. Bed Bugs are tenacious little creatures that will not go quietly in the night, in fact, that is when they want you for dinner!
Even with a small bed bug problem, you need to be very astute with your inspection and treatment.
As with everything else in the world, there are many ways to treat these nasty bloodsuckers. Fumigation, heat, dust, aerosol, mattress covers, steam,freezing, etc….but whichever method you wish choose, PLEASE, hire a professional pest control company. One that has a great reputation and understands your needs. It takes great patience, dedication and experience to properly and successfully handle bed bug issues of any size.

As you can see by the video, bed bugs do NOT just hide on your bed. It’s even possible to transport bed bugs from the original infected site (such as your bedroom) to other areas of your house by hitching a ride on you.
