Bedbugs and Over-The-Counter Solutions

It is not uncommon for anyone who faces a pest infestation to first head to the hardware store in search of do-it-yourself remedies, this is also true for people with bedbugs infestations as well. In a recently published article by Susan C. Jones and Joshua L. Bryant we learn just how truly ineffective these products are in fighting bedbugs.

Jones and Bryant evaluated different products that can be bought at the store and found that they had little impact if any impact on the bedbug population. They specifically evaluated three types of foggers and found that they did not work as advertised.

When ineffective products sold at hardware stores advertise quick bedbug solutions they are instead making the situation worse. It delays the renter or homeowner from calling a pest professional who has the skills, products, equipment, and expertise to solve the bedbug problem safety and effectively.

On a national scale the bedbug problem continues to grow. The best way to solve it is by education and quick action. In the year 2000 only a quarter of all exterminators in the U.S. dealt with bedbugs now, that is at nearly 100%.

If you are facing a bedbug problem call a pest professional instead of trying products that may not even work.

  1. You make a good point. For best and long lasting results, I think calling for the help of pest professionals is the best route to take. Consulting them about the insects inside our house and receiving efficient solutions on how to avoid them, is really worth every minute, and every penny. These professionals know exactly what to do. Before you know it, you already have a pest-free home!

  4. Pest Inspectors suggestion is highly important In commercial buildings such as restaurants, hotels and factories, early detection and control of pest problems is crucial, ensuring HACCP compliance and a healthy serving environment is key, so you should ensure regular inspections regardless with Pest Inspectors.

  7. I agree with Max! For a lasting solution, you should consider the services of pest control professionals to get rid of them for you. Buying over the counter chemicals and doing it by yourself might be a good idea, but it’s not guaranteed of a lasting result. So, do it the right way and keep yourself from getting stressed!

  8. Yes, bed bugs are annoying and give you sleepless nights with their itchy bites. I tried pest control like the cold treatment edmonton and so far these insects had been eliminated.

  9. One way to prevent bed bug infestation is to make boundaries in each bed pole. That is to place oil in each cup to prevent bed bugs from reaching you.

  13. I remember those bed bugs, they can cause you sleepless nights, what I did is to spray an organic pesticide and exposed all infected things directly under the hot sunlight.
