Why Remove Things For A Bed Bug Treatment?

Before a bed bug treatment of any kind can be done successful companies will require at least some form of prep work to be done. Prep work is defined as preparing your personal items for a bed bug treatment. If a pest control company tells you that they do not require prep work at all, you best find another that does. Prep is extremely essential for success from bed bug treatments. If it is not done there will be a much larger chance that bed bugs will survive a treatment for bed bugs.

Why remove cloths and other fabrics like bedding?…

Question: Why do you have to prep and remove fabrics throughout your home?

Answer: Fabrics can cause cold spots that would allow bed bugs to survive the heat treatment. Fabrics are the number one cause of bed bugs surviving a heat treatment for bed bugs. Chemically treated areas for bed bugs will need fabrics removed as well. It is illegal to let clients leave their clothes, bedding and other fabrics inside of the areas being chemically treated. The reason being is that chemicals cannot get onto things you wear, sit on or sleep with. Where do chemicals say this at? It’s located within the label. Always follow chemical insecticide labels. Every chemical insecticide has labels that tell you how to safely apply the insecticide and follow the law, because it is the law.
