Protecting your peace after having an unfortunate encounter with bed bugs is naturally going to be your top priority. Here’s how you do it.
Once you’ve had bed bugs, you will never want to have them again. If you’re a sane person, then you probably didn’t want them in the first place, either. But is it really possible to be bedbug-free forever?
Our bedbug exterminators get asked that question on the job a lot. While there is no simple answer to this question there is definitely a simple solution to the problem.
There would be no point in performing a pest control treatment if you couldn’t make sure bed bugs were gone for good. That’s what our services are all about.
We don’t just come in and kill bed bugs once and hope that’s enough to protect you.
It has always been our top priority to ensure we eradicate any sign of infestation and help our clients avoid another case of bedbugs in the future.
So, how do we do it? Well, it’s all about having the right approach.
BedBug911 has spent nearly 30 years helping people remove bed bugs from their homes so they can live and sleep in peace.
Bed bug infestations are a growing problem in this country. As much as we are happy to help people in need of an extermination service, we believe everyone deserves to live pest-free.
How to stay safe from bed bugs is information that we think everybody should have.
Understanding how you get bed bugs, where they come from, and how they spread is the best way to learn how to avoid infestations. This is the key to making sure they don’t come back after extermination, too.
If you want to protect yourself from bedbugs, then you need to listen to what our experts have to say about keeping them out of your home or business.
How Do I Know if I Have Bed Bugs?
We get asked this question a lot, and for a good reason. Bed bugs are horribly invasive. They will take over your home before you even know they are there.

Once the infestation matures, it can be painfully difficult to get rid of.
Bed bug bites are the main sign of a bed bug infestation. They are frequently found on the body where the skin is exposed while sleeping and they can cause itchy, red welts to appear.
Any sensible person who wakes up with an insect bite or two is going to wonder if there are bed bugs in their home.
But just because you woke up with some mysterious insect bites doesn’t mean it’s time to panic.
First, make sure the bites you have are actually from bed bugs. They could be from something else, like a spider or a mosquito.
To know for sure, bedbugs tend to bite the same area of skin over and over. They do this because that area is probably more easily accessible than others. The result is that bed bug bites tend to appear in clusters or straight lines.
If it’s just one or two bites in different spots, you may not have anything to worry about.
But just to be sure, we think it’s best to do a full bed bug inspection. Checking your home or business for bed bugs routinely is a good idea even if you don’t wake up with a dozen or so bites on your neck, arms, legs, and back.
The color of the bed bug bite mark depends on the person’s skin tone. Some people will have no marks at all.
Being able to tell a bed bug bite apart from other insect bites is important.
But don’t wait to find out you have been bitten to be on top of your at-home pest control. There are other signs of bed bugs that you can look for to protect yourself before they even strike.
What Kills Bed Bugs Instantly?
There are some things that can kill a bed bug in an instant, like high heat or a bed bug spray that activates on contact. We will dive more into these options in a moment. But thinking of bed bug extermination techniques in this way can be misleading.
Even the things that do kill bed bugs instantly won’t get rid of the whole infestation overnight.
Why? Because they only work on the bed bugs that they act on, while the rest may be untouched or free to escape.
That is why we always recommend a well-rounded approach to bed bug treatment.
One thing is never enough, you must make sure you cover as much ground as possible if you want to successfully get rid of bed bugs.
We employ a variety of techniques during our own bed bug extermination services for this very reason. It is the best way to ensure positive results.
Our bed bug sprays are activated on contact, so we make sure the bed bugs being sprayed can’t escape. Any bed bugs that are hiding deep within your furniture will be eradicated when we use our industrial-strength steamers.
By not relying on a single technique, but incorporating several extermination methods into a single treatment, we are able to eradicate the infestation from every angle.
Can you ever totally get rid of bed bugs?
Since bed bugs are so invasive it is impossible for even the best exterminators to guarantee you can 100% prevent bed bugs from entering your home. But that does not mean that you cannot live a healthy, sane, bedbug-free life.
The key to this is not to assume that just because an exterminator came that there is nothing left for you to do, but to stay proactive and make sure you don’t allow an infestation to brew right under your nose.
By including some simple pest control techniques and habits in your daily life, you can stop a bedbug infestation before it starts.
Even if a bedbug were to make its way into your home, a regular pest cleaning schedule would help you make sure it doesn’t get very far.
Using mattress protectors, pillow encasements, and bed bug cleaning sprays to keep them from getting into your belongings is the best way to ensure bed bugs don’t come back after you remove them.
Regularly doing bed bug laundry can also help protect you from bed bugs who may have hitched a ride on your clothes or backpack.
We recommend that all of our clients adopt these habits to maximize the effectiveness of our extermination services. Avoiding an infestation will always be easier than getting rid of one.
