Preparation For Bed Bug Extermination

Preparation is the key when exterminating bed bugs. Preparation begins before the fumigation process starts, which means foraging for every possible food source to be removed from your home. We have written this article because we have dealt with thousands of bug infestations in NYC over the years. We have learned (the hard way) that thorough preparation is the only way to get a successful extermination job, and therefore save you many hundreds of dollars in the long run. Bed bugs are often treated through a process called heat treating (also known as thermal treatment or thermal remediation). During a heat treatment, everything inside of an infested room is heated to between 120 and 136 degrees Fahrenheit for at least an hour. By heating everything in the room it ensures that all life stages of bed bug within the structure (including eggs) will be killed.

Preparation For Bed Bug Extermination

Preparing for bed bug extermination is an important step in the process. It can be a little intimidating to think about how you’re going to get rid of these pesky bugs, but it’s important to remember that there are professionals out there who can help you if you want to do it yourself or if you want some extra assistance with the process.

Preparing for bed bug extermination involves making sure that everything in your home is ready for pest control treatment. This means clearing clutter out of all rooms and taking out any rugs or flooring that may have been damaged by bedbugs. It also means making sure any furniture has been thoroughly cleaned and inspected for pests before being brought back into the home.

It also means making sure that all pets have been removed from the home, as they tend to bring in fleas and ticks that could be carrying bedbugs with them.

The best way to do this is by contacting a professional pest control company. They will be able to tell you exactly what you need to get the job done right, including what tools and materials they will use on your property. The right tools will include an insecticide that contains pyrethrins or permethrins, as these are non-toxic to humans but highly effective at killing bed bugs.

As far as supplies go, you’ll want to make sure that you have plenty of garbage bags available so that you can dispose of all of your belongings once they’ve been sprayed with insecticide. This will be necessary because after spraying with insecticide, all items must be heat treated before being put back into your home so that they do not become infested again with these pests.

If possible, try not to wash any clothes or other items until after they have been heat treated; this will ensure that no eggs hatch out before disposal occurs and prevent reinfestation from occurring later down the road if any eggs do manage to survive treatment!
