There are a few things consumers should take into consideration before hiring a bed bug exterminator in Phoenix, Arizona. Due to the continued consistent rise in hysteria consumers should be on guard and do their research before being talked or scared into costly and unnecessary bed bug treatments. Below are some tips to protect your sanity and your wallet.
- If you are absolutely sure that you are familiar with identifying bed bugs and you are positive that you have an infestation consider contacting us for FREE as we are a third party that works with over 30 pest control companies. We can give you an honest unbiased choice of treatment options and steer you in the right direction of the honest and ethical exterminators in the area.
- If you are not 100% sure that you have a bed bug issue then the first step is to try to find the problem yourself. Here are some pictures of real Bed Bug infestations that we have encountered to make it easy for you to identify the problem. If you find an issue contact us for FREE to guide you in the right direction.
- If you have inspected yourself and can’t find anything it does not necessarily mean that you do not have a bed bug issue. Early infestations are very difficult to detect. This is where our service comes into play and can be worth every penny considering the psychological impact these creatures can have on the average person. Do your research and consider hiring one of our bed bug detection dog teams. This way we can find an infestation in the very early stages and help you get it taken care of or even better yet put the issue to rest so you can rest if we find nothing.
If you do have bed bugs you will eventually be forced to do something as bed bugs will not go away on their own and the issue will become larger and larger as the colony grows. The more bed bugs there are the more difficult and more expensive the treatment can be. From my experience of inspecting thousands of properties over the past few years, the worse thing you can do is go to the store and buy bed bug spray or even worse yet foggers (bombs). I have seen the aftermath from these store bought chemicals and it rarely if ever eliminates the bed bugs. What these chemicals do very well is kill a few bugs, stir them up and spread them all over the place. The bugs will simply scatter to areas where the chemicals aren’t and find a new place to start feeding. I know in this economy it can be a difficult pill to swallow to hire an exterminator, especially for those do-it-yourselfers; however there are just some things that you should seriously consider leaving to the professionals and this would be on that list in my opinion. Give us a call even if you don’t need our canine services and we can at least point you in the right direction based on your situation.
