Cost-Effective and Money-Wasting Bed Bug Control Methods
Bed bugs, (Cimex lectularius L.), have gradually become a common urban pest in the past decade. People get bed bugs in various ways such as visiting an infested place, bringing in infested furniture, or through the natural dispersal of bed bugs from an infested neighboring unit within a multi-occupancy dwelling such as an apartment building. Many people try to control bed bugs themselves to avoid the expense of hiring a professional service; however, professional services offer the advantage of a technician that is properly trained in pesticide safety and effective bed bug management. It is recommended to use professional pest control services. However, for those who still wish to control bed bugs on their own, this provides a summary of the cost effective versus money-wasting materials and methods. This information will help you combat bed bugs safely and effectively.
