How Do You Find and Hire a Bed Bug Expert?

Bedbug Close-UpSo you think you might have bed bugs. You may have them, or you may not. What you think could be bed bugs could be another type of insect in your home – yikes – which means that you may need another course of treatment. Or perhaps what you think are bed bug bites on you could simply be an allergy to something else. For example, certain kinds of laundry detergent can cause allergies that look similar to bug bites.

However, you do not want to simply think you have bed bugs, and try to treat them at home. Over-the-counter treatments for bed bugs are ineffective at best. At worst, they are flammable materials that could start a fire. Not good!

What a bed bug expert can do

 

This is why you need to hire a bed bug expert to analyze the situation, and see whether you have bed bugs. In many cases, the expert has a bed bug dog that is trained to have a nose for bed bugs. The bed bug expert – whether or not they have a dog (and it is better if they work with a dog) — can work with you to determine whether you have bed bugs.

Then, if you do have bed bugs, the expert can help you figure out a course of action. Some companies, like Bed Bug Finders LLC will recommend heat treatment, while other companies freeze the bed bugs, and still others have other forms of treatments. Talk to the bed bug expert about what sort of treatment you are comfortable with. Depending how bad the infestation is, you may or may not have to get rid of your bed.

How to find a bed bug expert

 

Normally, we recommend when you are searching for a professional to ask your friends for a recommendation. But the problem with doing that for finding a bed bug expert is that 1) you may be embarrassed to tell others that you may have bed bugs, and 2) your friends may be embarrassed to admit to you that they had bed bugs.

So you may want to use the internet to search for bed bug experts, and check out local companies. When you find some companies to consider, you should check with the Better Business Bureau to make sure that a pest control company you are considering is reputable. In addition, you can check with places like Yelp, although take the results with a grain of salt. Good luck.
