You may notice itchy hives on the skin. You can also see the bed bugs, small blood spots of crushed insects or dark spots of their excrement. It is often difficult to find them because they hide inside or near beds or other furniture, and in cracks.
HOW CAN I KNOW IF MY HOUSE IS INFESTED WITH BED BUG?
The Department of Health recommends that homeowners hire insect control companies registered with the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to get rid of bed bugs (e.g.: LOS FUMIGADORES PEST CONTROL). This company must: • Inspect your home to confirm the presence of bed bugs • Find and eliminate their hiding places • Clean your home with special cleaning products or pesticides if necessary. • Inspect again the hiding places to guarantee that bed bugs are gone. Make sure that your insect control company hires certified insect control professionals (LOS FUMIGADORES PEST CONTROL CAN ALSO HELP YOU WITH PRODUCTS AND PROFESSIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE BED BUG CONTROL)..
SHOULD I HIRE AN INSECT CONTROL COMPANY?
The best way to get rid of bed bugs is to clean, disinfect and eliminate their hiding places. Since young bugs (nymphs) can live for several months and bed bugs mature for more than a year without feeding, the insect control company could use a pesticide. Talk with a professional (CALL AT 770-360-0191) about the safe use of pesticides and make sure that: • Uses the less toxic pesticide • Follows instructions and warnings in the products labels. • Warns you to stay far from the disinfected areas and tells you when is safe to enter. • Disinfect mattresses and couches using small amounts of pesticides, only in the seams. Never spray pesticide over mattresses and sofas.
