So, you think you have bed bugs? Here are some Do’s and Don’ts to consider…..

January 18, 2012

While I agree that there are some benefiting from the recent rise in the numbers of bed bug infestations; there are those of us that have been in the pest control industry for many years.  A.G.A.D. Pest Control, Inc. has been in business for over 30 years. We have a long established, proven method of bed bug and other pest eradication. A.G.A.D. Pest Control, Inc. has a new addition to the company and her name is Nyx.  Nyx is a certified canine bedbug detection dog, whose daily training makes her up to 98% effective.  With Nyx and our other proven methods of treatment, which can include heat or pesticides, we can safely rid your home or business of bed bugs.

In your search to hire a reliable pest professional, you’ll need to do some due- diligence in order to protect yourself and your wallet; my advice to anyone looking to rid themselves of bedbugs and hire a reliable company, would be this:

1)      If you think you have bed bugs, capture one and call a reputable pest control company (one that didn’t jump on the bed bug “bandwagon” in the last 2 years) with a proven track record, in bed bug elimination.

2)      Ask how they will rid you of these pests. What kinds of treatments do they usually perform, the pesticides they will use, and how long will it take.

3)      Price will usually depend on the type of application you choose, but be wise, some of the more reliable services will offer some kind of guarantee after the last of typically 3 pesticide applications 2 weeks apart, totaling 6 weeks. Heat treatments are typically completed in 1 day and will also offer guarantees afterward.

I do not recommend anyone attempting to do his or her own pest control for these reasons:

a)      Pesticides can be dangerous if you don’t know how and when to use them!

b)     Most pesticide sprays and/or foggers won’t work on bed bugs and will likely spread the problem causing an even bigger infestation.

c)      Call on professionals who are certified in the use of pesticides.

A.G.A.D. Pest Control, Inc. services Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. We are capable, trustworthy and reputable. If for some reason you have to call someone else, find a company you can trust implicitly;  after all, unless you opt for the 1-day heat treatment you will be seeing a lot of them in the time it takes to rid yourselves of bed bugs.
