Getting rid of bed bugs is very difficult. A consultation with TerminixSiS is recommended.Positive identification is important because misidentification can lead to unsuccessful bed bug control efforts.
Inspection is critical in preventing bed bugs from returning. Overlooking even the smallest crack in furniture may lead to a persistent infestation; therefore, beds, nightstands and related furniture often require disassembly and careful inspection.Carpets may need to be gently lifted along the edge and the space beneath treated. Baseboards, door and window frames and any visible crack will require treatment in infested rooms. Should furniture be moved from an infested unit to another unit, it should be carefully inspected and cleaned or treated as necessary to prevent the spread of bed bugs to the new room.
Furniture that is infested needs to be thrown out, and clearly marked as unusable due to bed bug infestation. It should also be tightly wrapped in plastic to keep from spreading them to other rooms as it is moved to the outside. People should take care when purchasing furniture at second sales and should carefully inspect all sides and crevices for evidence of bed bugs.
