Why Professional Bed Bug Control In Tulsa Is More Affordable Than You May Think
June 22, 2020
Bed bugs could be the most worrisome pests out there. They can quickly multiply and violate the intimate space that is your bedroom. While you’re sleeping, they bite you and suck your blood. In the morning, you have a plethora of itchy red bites on your body. Any Tulsa home or business owner would be eager to get rid of them. To do so, they may try a host of over-the-counter products or do-it-yourself methods. The assumption is that these options are just as effective as any professional service and that they will be less expensive. This is far from true, though.
Many tactics either don’t work, or only do so temporarily. This leads to a lot of trial and error and wasted dollars. Don’t let this happen to you. Learn why bed bug “hacks and tricks” often fails, and how Dandi Guaranty gets the extermination job done right.
Where Do Bed Bugs Come From?
Before you can address a bed bug issue, it’ll help to understand how they get into homes. They invade public places, hunting for human blood. They inhabit spots like schools, bus stations, and hotels, waiting to crawl into personal bags and clothes. Once on your property, they’ll nest in:
Signs of infestation include blood drops, red-brown smears, and/or black or brown fecal stains around linens. Of course, having body bites or rashes is an indicator.
The household bed bug has six legs and three body segments. They have two antennas on their round heads, a weirdly shaped midsection, and a large, circular bottom. Color-wise, they’re reddish-brown and have translucent young. Their eggs are white. Hard to see, they cap in size at ¼ of an inch long.
Why Don’t DIY Bed Bug Methods Work? What Do They Cost?
At best, many DIY methods of bed bug control are useless. At worst, they’re pricey and/or hazardous:
Rubbing alcohol: A few studies have shown that ethanol in alcohol can immediately kill bed bugs. However, it’s flammable and can cause respiratory problems if you inhale it.
Diatomaceous Earth (DE): This powdery substance can dehydrate bed bugs, but every one of them would have to crawl in it to kill them all. Additionally, it can take days to kick in. It’s also dangerous to inhale.
Dry ice traps: Bed bugs are drawn to the carbon dioxide produced by dry ice, but prolonged exposure to the gas is lethal for humans. And you can burn yourself handling it.
Insecticides: The majority of retail items are too weak to take out bed bugs, which can develop a resistance to them.
The prime reason most products fail is that you’d have to locate every living bed bug and egg to do a complete treatment. That’s just too difficult. At a range of $20.00 to $90.00 apiece, it’s not worth testing your luck with these products.
