Bed bugs can be one of the most troublesome pests to handle, particularly as it can be difficult to identify them if you don’t know the signs of a bed bug infestation. These bugs enter your home by accident by hitching a ride on luggage, sleeping bags, and other such objects. You can tell you are dealing with bed bugs if you notice bite marks all in a line on your skin from the bugs feeding on you in your sleep or bloody streaks or fecal stains in your linens. Bed bug bites cause itching and burning sensations, and the bumps are raised red welts. The bugs themselves are nocturnal, so you are not likely to see them with your own eyes. They are notoriously difficult to eradicate due to the fact that they can live up to a year without food and are not adversely affected by fluctuations in temperature.
You can try to get rid of bed bugs on your own by thoroughly vacuuming all of your carpets and furniture and washing all of your linens in extremely hot water, but this is a risky proposition as all it takes is one healthy male bug and one healthy female bug to begin the infestation process all over again. Time and time again, we get calls at Pesticon from clients in Vancouver that have exhausted every option on their own to remove bedbugs from their home. Home remedies take time, effort, cost money and are rarely the 100% solution.
The best way to exterminate your bed bugs is call in a professional pest control expert like Pesticon. Your exterminator will instruct you on what you need to do to prepare for their visit. Preparations may include piling up furniture, tossingmattresses, removing light switch plates, stripping mattresses that you are keeping of linen so that they are bare, etc. You may also need to wash everything you can in boiling water and/or leave it out in the sun. For more information, ask your trusted pest control professional what to do.

We recommend taking all of the necessary steps to make sure you don’t bring home bed bugs in the first place, including never buying used or second-hand upholstered furniture or mattresses, washing all clothing immediately after returning from a trip and drying them on your dryer’s hottest setting, and carefully reading all online reviews for hotels before booking a reservation. If there is even one mention of bed bugs at a particular hotel, we strongly advise staying elsewhere for your trip. Bed bugs are not the ideal souvenir to bring home from a trip!
