Bed bugs are a little thing that can become an explosive problem all too easily. Not only do bed bugs in fact bite, but they are easily transferred to your other furniture, clothes, and shoes which make them a highly contagious problem to deal with. One simple case of bed bugs can transfer from one person's house to an entire office building's worth of people.
Stay Vigilant There are many common places that people pick up bed bugs without realizing it, and then take them home to infest their own homes. Hotels are one place that many people do realize can carry bed bugs, and so people have started checking the beds and furniture before they even set their bags down, which is the way to go. However, there are quite a few other popular places to pick up these tiny trouble making bugs that you should be watching out for.
Public Transportation: Trains, planes, and automobiles can keep these tiny critters hidden pretty easily, especially since you don't normally check before you sit down in the seat of an airplane or bus. Since there are so many people constantly using those seats before you, however, these become popular breeding grounds for beg bugs.
Movie Theaters and Restaurants: Another place you might frequent that bed bugs might as well are the seats and furniture in theaters and restaurants. Again, this is due to the constant stream of people and potential new hosts.
Daycares and Schools: Parents everywhere know that kids share just about everything. Unfortunately, bed bugs are not as noticeable (or as easily treated) as common hair lice.
Take It to the Professionals If you find bed bugs in your own home, you might be tempted to try to eradicate the issue on your own. There is an endless supply of ideas on the internet, and many of them make it look easy and inexpensive to take care of the problem. The problem is that these treatments rarely work, which means they always come back-- usually because those home treatments just don't do the job and get rid of the problem fully. Bed bugs are a big problem because just a couple can quickly turn into more than you can count. So sighting one bed bug in the seam of your mattress can turn into thousands all over your home, clothes, and vehicle. Not to mention dealing with the itchy bites they can leave all over your body. To truly take care of bedbugs, you need to call a professional exterminator that has experience with these tricky vermin.

Choosing the right pest control company is important for the safety and efficacy of the extermination treatment. The very best exterminators will be able to solve your pest problem safely and efficiently, and at a fair price. There are some questions that you can ask to help you decide what pest control company is right for you.
Is the company insured? As with most service companies, you want to know if the pest control company you are hiring is insured. This is for two main reasons. First, a properly licensed and insured company protects both you and their own workers with the right coverage. Secondly, it is a good indicator of responsibility if a company is licensed and insured properly. The coverage should be appropriate for the state you live in. There will also likely be special certifications for treating particular problems, so that should be looked into as well.
Does the company have experience with your specific situation? Some companies might be really great at treating termites, but have no experience with beg bugs, for example. Make sure, before you start anything with any company, that they have experience with your situation. After all, you want your pest problem taken care of properly the first time.
How would you treat my situation if I hire your company? In any given situation, there are a number of ways that a pest control company could treat your pest problem. After they have assessed your situation, it is a good idea to ask how exactly they plan on helping you before you sign any contracts or hire them. This way you can find out if they plan on using bait, traps, poison, or another form of extermination.
Will the treatment be safe for my pets and kids? A very important question to ask, especially if you have little ones, is how safe your home will be after the treatment. Certain extermination techniques may require you to move out of your home for a day or two, or you may need to block off certain areas of your house to make sure that pets or children do not come in contact with dangerous substances or traps. Even if you don't have children or pets, it is still a good idea to know what you are dealing with and how safe it is.
Here are some other factors to consider when hiring a pest control company: Contracts: Always read the fine print on everything before you sign anything. Also, make sure that you get everything in writing, including how long the treatment will take, what tools or substances are being used, what results are expected, and the payment amount and schedule. References: Never underestimate a company's referrals. To make sure you are hiring a reputable company, call the references and do your research before calling a company. You can get a lot of information from online reviews to start. Choosing the right pest control company could be the difference between a great experience and a terrible one. When you have a pest control problem, you can't really afford too many do-overs. If you are in New York, call My Private Exterminator, Inc. We provide top notch service that you can depend on.
