Are you interested to know more about the Don’ts?

Let’s dive into the details.

Make sure you are not confusing bed bugs with fleas 

As bed bugs are quite similar to fleas, that’s why some people have difficulty identifying whether it’s a bed bug or a flea. Generally, the bed bug is flat and seed-shaped. On the other hand, Fleas have an oval kind of shape that is slim and long. Secondly, fleas are usually small in size.

Don’t Panic

It will be challenging to get rid of the bed bug infestation, but it is not impossible. So, relax and don’t take all your furniture out of your house as most of them can be treated. If you throw things out of your home, first, you’d be losing your stuff which you always liked. Secondly, this way, the infestation could spread in someone else’s house, which will be a nuisance for them. Just contact a pest control service in your area, and they will handle it all for you.

Think about all the treatment options first

It would help if you didn’t try to pick up the spray can immediately; instead, you could think about the different options available. Select the one which best suits you. You could go for the Integrated Pest Management strategy in which there are many steps involved in eliminating the pests. For example, monitoring, reducing clutter, improving sanitation, and then applying pesticides if needed. You can contact us to get things done professionally.

These are some of the things which you have to ensure that you don’t do. Ignoring bed bugs would create many problems in the future as the infestation will get bigger, so you should respond to it as quickly as possible. Apart from the points mentioned above, if you think using mosquito repellent will kill them, you are wrong because these mosquito repellants are ineffective for killing bed bugs. Lastly, it would help if you didn’t keep your extra things under the bed as it will provide the bed bugs with hiding places.
