MYTH: Bed bugs won’t come out if the room is brightly lit.
Bed bugs really prefer darkness, but keeping the light on at night won’t deter these insidious and secretive critters from biting you.
MYTH: Pesticide applications alone will easily eliminate bed bug infestations.
Bed bug control can be maintained through a comprehensive treatment strategy that incorporates a variety of techniques and vigilant monitoring. Proper use of pesticides may be one component of the strategy, but will not eliminate bed bugs alone.
MYTH: If I throw out the bed I will no longer have bed bugs.
They may be called bed bugs but they don’t just live in beds and they can occupy almost any dark crack or crevice in a room. Disposing of ANY furniture prior to it being inspected and treated by an experienced and competent pest control professional can be a costly mistake and certainly a false economy. Almost everything can be treated to remove bed bugs but if not properly handled, the removal of furniture can simply spread an infestation to other areas of the property.
