Experts agree: Bed bug infestations are difficult to control, and no one treatment or technique has been found to be effective in all cases. Still, bed bugs can be controlled through a combination of techniques known as integrated pest management (IPM) – an environmentally sensitive approach that includes prevention, monitoring, and limited use of chemical pesticides.
Preparing your home for spraying and fogging In order for you to effectively treat your indoor structure it must be prepared accordingly. Unfortunately, the preparation process can be a stressful and time-consuming process; but that’s where our preparation instructions will help. By using our bed bug treatment preparation instructions, you will be able to treat areas of concern that would otherwise be inaccessible.
The following is our suggested process:
Stripping Beds Sanitizing of mattress, box spring, covers, sheets, and pillowcases.
Dismantle your bed, separating the headboard and foot board from the bed frame. This allows you to thoroughly treat the structure of your bed.
Empty dressers, wall units, book shelves, night stands, and other furniture; contents should be sanitized, bagged, sealed, and placed in another room or outside until job is finished. Any items situated on the floor such as clothing, toys, clutter, etc. should also be sanitized, bagged and sealed. All pictures hanging on the wall should be vacuumed, sanitized, and wrapped.
Vacuuming Bed Bugs
Using a vacuum you will vacuum all box springs, mattresses, bed frames, nightstands, tables, chairs, couches, baseboards, rugs, and pictures.
It is best that all hanging clothes are sent to a laundry facility. Laundry should be removed from closets and dressers, sorting whites from dark's, and placed into clear plastic bags. Sealed laundry bags should be placed in another room or outside, out of your way.
Move couches, wall units, beds, dressers, end tables, nightstands, and all other obstructions three feet from the wall to make the perimeter areas accessible for spraying. Because bed bugs like to move from place to place & room to room, we have put together a protocol that if followed, should help neutralize today’s problem as well as future outbreaks.
