How do I get rid of Bed Bugs?
Currently, there are no over the counter products that are 100% effective in eliminating bed bugs. If you do develop an infestation, early detection and treatment are critical. Do it yourself methods can be employed to keep bed bug populations in check. These include vacuuming infested areas to physically remove the bed bugs and their eggs. It will be necessary to scrape any surface to dislodge the eggs prior to vacuuming and then dispose of the vacuum bag immediately following the completion of the vacuuming. If one decides to attempt to treat for bed bugs with Do-it-yourself products, the product label must be strictly followed. Consumers generally believe that “if a little bit is good, then a lot must be better”. This myth is simply not true. The product label is a guide to instruct the user how to correctly use the product safely and effectively and is the Federal Law!
