The Most Effective Way To Handle Bed Bugs In Your Las Vegas Home
September 15, 2020
Many people like taking pest matters into their own hands, but in the case of these tiny terrors, ‘matters’ maybe a little too much to handle! Bed bugs are tiny, ¼ inch long insects that feed on human blood. By hitchhiking from person to person, item to item, these bugs can quickly set up an entire infestation within your household.
While bed bugs have not been known to spread disease, the itchy bites, anemia, and insomnia they can cause is reason enough to get them out – and fast. The signs of bed bug activity normally appear to be blood spots or excrement stains on bedsheets, which fool many into thinking that their infestation is a small-scale problem. Of course, this is one of the reasons why many homeowners attempt to handle the problem themselves.
Why Most DIY Methods Are A Waste Of Time & Money
There is nothing intrinsically wrong with trying DIY pest control. It can be a great way to keep bed bugs from entering your home in the first place! But, unfortunately, most at-home attempts to deal with a bed bug infestation are ineffective at best and are often a waste of time and money. Faulty DIY pest control methods for bed bugs usually include the following:
- Throwing Away The Bed: This DIY method will certainly get rid of your bed, but it won’t get rid of all the bugs. Bed bugs have been known to hide in carpets, rugs, books, and even electrical outlets, making this control method utterly pointless.
- Spraying With Vinegar: Vinegar is a strong deterrent for many bugs, but it will not eliminate all bed bugs.
- Using The Blow Dryer: Heat treatments are an effective way to get rid of bed bugs, but using the blow dryer will probably not be the best one. Even one tiny egg is all it takes to get the entire infestation started up again.
Not sure how bad the bed bugs have become in your Las Vegas home? Take the time to schedule a free home inspection to investigate your options right away.

However, an infestation can come from anywhere, and even the most vigilant of us may discover we cannot avoid their presence forever.
