Summer is winding down. I hope those of you who made the time to get away enjoyed exploring, moving around, and mingling with friends and family! This article is for those who brought bed bugs back home with you.
For many people, the last two years have been isolating from friends, family, and exotic vacations. Many folks lived with bed bugs during the pandemic closures. Any surviving bed bugs in hotels or motels have lived without a good meal for a year or more. Travelers who still have bed bugs at home will probably take them with them. Hungry bed bugs will search you out where you’re staying, and could very well hitchhike home with you.
Either way, it’s a situation we will find ourselves in for a while to come.
Don’t Panic and Act Fast
Every bed bug infestation begins with a couple of bed bugs and multiplies from there. I’ve written before about the speed which a breeding pair of bed bugs can spawn huge numbers. Acting fast does not necessarily mean you won’t need to still heat treat your entire home; it does mean the potential for insects to escape a bed bug heat treatment is much less likely.
The good news is you can safely and economically self-treat your home with heat with an ePro electric heater package... most often for less than you’d pay for a professional treatment.
The logic is pretty simple: the fewer bed bugs you start with, the fewer you can fail to kill. You’ll still find them hiding in all the normal places like mattress tufting, furniture seams, and your bedroom chest of drawers. You’ll still want to heat the rooms until the hardest-to-heat area reaches 140°F.
Our bed bug heater packages come with all the equipment and power cords you will need to begin treating your home or business for bed bugs.
