Sleep Tight and Don’t Let the Bed Bugs Bite

We all go on vacation to have fun and de-stress. Unfortunately, the relaxing trip you’ve got planned could quickly turn sour if you stumble across bed bugs.

Many vacationers don’t realize that traveling is the number one way bed bugs get into your home. Have you done any research on your travel accommodations to determine if they’re bed bug free? Most people don’t. Plan ahead to ensure your trip is the stress-free vacation you’ve been imagining.

If you are one of the unfortunate travellers to return home with bed bug stowaways, act quickly. Taking swift action is essential to curbing your infestation. Call a licensed bed bug removal company immediately. Unlike many common household pests, bed bugs are virtually impossible to exterminate without professional assistance.

Extreme heat has proven to be the most effective treatment. We don’t mean dialing up your thermostat a few degrees. Bed bug heat treatments raise the temperature of your home to over 45° C. At this temperature, bed bugs and their eggs are unable to survive. Best of all heat treatments target the entire infested area, so there’s no escape. Heat treatments are also completely safe and eco-friendly.

To find a reliable exterminator, seek a company that provides proof of licensing and insurance. Alex Dayan, Director of the Bed Bug Removal Division for Magical Pest Control recommends asking the following questions when seeking a heat treatment:

  • Do they use thermal blankets to protect your belongings?
  • Do they remove sensitive items from your home that may get damaged by heat?
  • How do they ensure that all bed bugs are killed and don’t spread to other areas?
  • Do they have a service guarantee?
