These blood eating critters do not discriminate based on class or income, and it does not even matter if you keep your home fastidiously clean. Crumbs on the counter don’t matter, they only have one food source: you, and they multiply at alarming rates. Bed bugs can take up residence in your furniture, the underside of carpets, cracks along the baseboards and crawl into tiny spaces. They can cling to your clothes after you’ve been just about anywhere in public: the library, public transportation, restaurants or a friend’s home.
Don’t get frustrated or embarrassed, it can happen to anyone, just call a professional before the infestation spirals out of control and get on top of it before it’s too late to save your furniture and mattress. A good pest control company will evaluate the extent of the problem and provide a quote based on how many rooms need to be treated. When the treatment begins, the technician will inform you which items you must discard and which are safe to keep.
Licensed technicians know how to spot these nasty creatures, as well as their droppings and eggs, and how to target their nesting areas. Toronto bed bugs are no match for professional licensed technicians that thoroughly investigate and treat your home, and any good treatment involves two visits with steam treatment and spraying. The second treatment takes place in two weeks to kill the eggs that have hatched and responsible companies like Power Pest Control make this follow-up mandatory and include the cost in your initial estimate.
You would be wise to ask the company about their employees’ credentials and what type of pesticides they use for exterminations. All technicians should be licensed by the Ministry of Environment and carry their Ontario Extermination Card to present to the clients. Pesticides should be safe for pregnant women, seniors, pets and children after treatment and Power Pest Control, for example, only uses such pesticides.
Living in the city, even in the suburbs, bed bugs are practically inevitable, and rates of infestation have been rising across Toronto. That’s why finding professional technicians who eradicate Toronto bed bugs from your home is important; having them can be a traumatic experience with real mental health consequences. If you live in Aurora, Milton, Mississauga, Newmarket, Oakville, Richmond Hill, Thornhill, Vaughan, or in the city, bed bug experts like Power Pest Control Toronto can help you out. They also treat other unwanted creatures from the more benign (but unnerving) centipedes, millipedes, and spiders, to potentially more dangerous ants (which can damage your home), cockroaches, hornets and wasps, and rodents. Over-the-counter sprays and chemicals are simply ineffective when it comes to bed bugs, and responsible exterminators actually have to rotate the pesticides they use, because of their ability to develop a genetic resistance. Don’t waste your time or sanity with home remedies and trust the professionals to put your life back to normal.
