Unfortunately, it isn’t that easy. Bed bugs require numerous effective treatments and an understanding of their life cycle. “I bombed our rooms, bombed the kitchen, bombed this whole house, it still didn’t work.” We hear this often. Our advice is to immediately contact a local Las Vegas exterminator. Let’s explain why.
Bed bugs can be more than a nuisance and embarrassment. They are also carriers of disease and can be very harmful to young children. Pair that with painful bites, lack of sleep and overall stress and it’s easy to see how bed bugs can put someone into a nightmare situation. Not to mention the fact that they like to hitchhike and can easily hitch a ride on clothing and be transmitted to the next unsuspecting family or home.
The life cycle of the bed bug means numerous treatments are required to eradicate them as well as multiple tactics and solutions, known as integrated pest management. What this means is it’s a battle on all fronts. Adult bed bugs can be killed with pesticide or vacuumed up but eggs cannot. In almost all scenarios at least two treatments are required for real success. Bed bug numbers are on the rise sharply after almost being completely eradicated at one point.
