We keep saying that do-it-yourself bedbug removal solutions are not the way to go. They may appear cheaper, but they don't get rid of the bed bugs, so in the long run, you end up paying that (and it isn't cheap) PLUS the cost of the inevitable professional bed bug services you will end up needing. So go to the professionals first and avoid the aggravation of non-effective remedies and having the bed bugs around your house longer!

It can be difficult to tell bedbug bites from other types of insect bites. However, they are typically itchy, and they may appear clustered or lined up in rough rows.

This is really how bed bugs think! Be extremely vigilant about possible bed bug infested areas when traveling. This is especially appropriate now as the spring and summer are approaching, people go on vacation, and college students come home. Bed bugs especially like hotels-exterminators cite hotels and motels as one of the most likely places to be bed bug infested, so check your room for bed bugs before sleeping in it! Survey the mattress, the blankets and the bed board for bed bugs! If you suspect or see bed bugs, ask to change rooms. It's not worth it to bring home bed bugs from a nice vacation...trust us!

Now that the spring is finally upon us, it is essential to remain vigilant with regard to bed bugs. While bed bugs can spread all year long, they are especially active as the weather gets warm. Jeff Eisenberg, founder and CEO of PestAway Exterminating, reports that he sees many more cases of bed bug infestations between April and November. So follow the tips in the previous post (6 Tips to Stop the Spread of Bed Bugs) to remain safe and pest-free!Read More

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Or maybe 2 tons in this case. Here are six tips with which you can help stop, or at least reduce, the spread of bedbugs in your home, community, town, and city.
1) Get a bed bug inspection done periodically using dogs. This will prevent you from unknowingly spreading an infestation.
2) Don’t ignore bed bugs or hope they will go away on their own. Jeff Eisenberg, principal of PestAway, reports that he has seen thousands of clients make that mistake, and later had to pay greatly (literally) with tougher infestations to deal with and a much more expensive cost of treatment.
3) Use only the products that work. Use repellants and pesticides (JT Eaton’s Rest Easy and Steri-Fab) to prevent infestations in your home and workspace.
4) Pay attention when traveling. Always inspect your hotel rooms. Seal your luggage. Avoid places in which bedbugs are likely to live. You don’t want to end your vacation with a bed bug infestation!
5) Don’t have guests over if you suspect an infestation! While you may appear to be anti-social, your friends will thank you when your infestation doesn’t spread to them as well.
6) If you have ‘em, exercise extreme caution. If you do have an infestation, be extremely careful not to spread them further. Heat and bag any clothing and other items where bed bugs may harbor before taking them out of your home.
