Okay. So, you were driving down the road and you saw a yard sale. Who doesn't love a good yard sale? You got out and walked around in the yard full of "treasures" and found something quite unexpected, a piece of furniture that would fit perfectly in your home! Right in THAT place! You know the one. But, little did you know that when you brought it home and put it in THAT place, deep inside a batch of bed bug eggs was waiting to hatch.
There are a ton of ways you can get bed bugs. Your story may not be the story above. But, there is one thing for sure; it involved bed bugs hitchhiking into your home on something. That's what these bugs do. So, now that you have them. How do you get rid of them?
How to get rid of bed bugs on your own.
We're going to be straight up with you; bed bugs are versatile pests that are extremely hard to eradicate. Here are some reasons why:
Bed bugs know how to run from pest control. Often, pest control measures just drive these bugs deep into wall voids--only to have them coming back to bite later.
Studies have shown that bed bugs can go as many as 400 days without feeding. So, unless you're planning to keep laying down pest products to kill bed bugs for the rest of the time you live in your home, you're going to want to get these bugs treated by a professional.
Bed bugs have the ability to grow a thicker skin (called the cuticle). Studies have shown that these pests adapt to pesticides and can make babies that are more resistant to pest products. If you don't kill all those bugs, they are likely to come in larger waves.
How to get rid of bed bugs for sure.
