Why Bed Bugs Are Double Trouble
Bed bugs in Plymouth are some of the sneakiest pests that can end up in your home. In fact, these pests can remain undetected the longest of any other pest infestation, giving them time to breed a steady adult population and making them so difficult to eradicate.
Bed bugs can go so long without being discovered because of their tiny size and uncanny ability to hide. Contrary to popular belief, bed bugs are not microscopic. But they are so tiny that spotting them is often difficult, especially with the naked eye. They make finding them even harder by hiding in impossible spots such as behind light switch covers, under keyboard keys, inside appliances, and even between carpet fibers. Bed bugs can hide virtually anywhere.
Even worse, the bed bug's uncanny ability to hide makes it very easy to wind up with an extensive infestation, even if you keep a clean home or business. All it takes is accidentally sleeping on a hotel mattress with a couple of bed bugs or buying a piece of furniture at a thrift shop that doesn't do a good job of checking for them, and bam! You've got a bed bug problem.
Do-It-Yourself Bed Bug Control Rarely Works
Bed bug control is one of the toughest pest control issues to try to handle yourself because DIY methods are just stunningly ineffective. You might have read online that you can use methods like essential oils, baking soda, or diatomaceous earth to get rid of bed bugs. But in truth, these methods only work if your bed bug problem is limited to your bed – if then.
The truth is that by the time you realize you have a bed bug infestation, it has almost always spread far beyond your bed. We've already discussed all the crazy places bed bugs can hide, so unless you can figure out a way to apply baking soda over every inch of your house, including the walls and ceiling, most natural methods for killing bed bugs, unfortunately, don't work. You'll need professional bed bug fumigation or heat treatments to eradicate an infestation from your home.
