Bedbugs Are Back
bedbugs are becoming a problem again spurred on by an increase in international
travel. In the late 40's bedbugs were virtually eradicated from most developed
countries by the use of DDT. However; since DDT was banned in the early
70's infestation has been becoming widespread.
Getting Rid of Bedbugs
Getting rid of bedbugs is not an easy process, and in most cases the
bedbug infestation will require treatment by a pest-control expert. A variety
of low-odor sprays, dusts, and aerosol insecticides may be used to eradicate
bedbugs. These must be applied to all areas where the bedbugs are observed
as well as spaces where they may crawl or hide. The pest-control company
can help you determine if your mattress or upholstered furniture can be
disinfected or must be discarded. We strongly recommend you have a professional
like Burns Pest Control treat your home. Bedbugs are difficult to
eradicate and it is not a do-it yourself project.
