No one wants a bed bug infestation in their home. These little pests are irritating, notoriously difficult to eliminate, and can harm your reputation in your community. At Advantage Pest Control in Toronto, we have handled many bed bug infestations in our lifetime with a strong and positive reputation. We have noticed that many people have a few misconceptions about bed bugs, and here are some of them we’d like to clarify:
1. Over The Counter Bed Bug Sprays Work
Bed bugs have grown immune or have developed resistance to certain types of pesticides and chemical solutions. Many OTC sprays don’t effectively penetrate the hard shell of a bed bug and therefore making it extremely challenging for homeowners to eradicate them.
2. Bed Bugs Spread Diseases
Bed bugs don’t carry and spread diseases. In rare cases, people may develop an infection as a result of a bed bug bite. People who are sensitive to bug bites or prone to allergies may experience some health problems.
3. At-Home Heat Treatments Work
If you search for information on bed bugs, you’ll quickly see that heat treatment is the most effective way to eliminate a bed bug problem. However, this solution is best left to professionals.
