NO one wants to hear the dreaded words BEDBUGS!
These tiny, horrible creatures can disrupt an entire household and make life miserable for everyone if they are not properly taken care of and completely eliminated from the home.
Bedbugs are parasitic insects that feed on blood. They usually prey on their victims when and where they sleep at night thus the name 'Bed' bugs. What makes them so insidious is that they are incredibly resilient. Bedbugs can live for up to a year without feeding. (So you can't starve them!) Bedbugs can live up to a 18 months without oxygen. (So you can't suffocate them!) These are the monsters of nightmares! Literally!
So how do you eradicate them?
Typically, a pesticide treatment is used. (Unfortunately, Bedbugs are becoming immune to more and more pesticides- Meaning more and more toxic chemicals need to be used.)
Another more recent treatment process has been developed over the past several years.
