Bed bug infestations are easily one of the most unfortunate types of pests that you can encounter within your home, luckily, they can be managed. While any bed bug infestation will require the assistance of a professional, Tap Out Pest Control is here to provide you with three incredibly important steps that you need to take when you discover an infestation in your home.

Step 1: Identifying the Infestation

When you’ve recognized that there’s a bed bug infestation in your home, inspect the area, and the areas surrounding to determine how bad the infestation is. If you’re unsure how bad the infestation is, having a professional inspect the area is always an option.

Step 2: Secure the Infested Area

Once you’ve determined the extent of the infestation, manage it to the best of your abilities. Secure any items that were in the area by sealing and treating them. Any items that you won’t be able to treat should be left sealed until you can be certain that any bed bugs are dead.Remember, bed bugs have the ability to crawl within the seams of clothing and into tight cracks of furniture. Be cautious and thoughtful when treating, if your item isn’t valuable, you may consider just throwing the item away.

Step 3: Treat the Area & Your Items

This is usually when the professionals step in. These little bugs are just too difficult to remove entirely without the proper forms of treatment. This usually requires incredibly high temperatures to kill the bugs off entirely. Allow for Tap Out Pest Control to handle the fumigation of your home and manage this step for you!
