Help! I think I have bed bugs!

First things first, don’t panic. A common response to the discovery of bed bugs in your home is to start throwing out furniture and spraying insecticides around. Aside from the, often unnecessary, expense of replacing furniture and other belongings, the use of ineffective insecticidal spays can cause bed bugs to disperse through your property, making eradication more difficult and expensive. Whether you decide to call a professional, or tackle the problem yourself, we advise that you first take the time to understand the problem, and the options available to you.

The following are the steps to take in controling your bedbug problem:

  1. Confirmation.
  2. Decide whether to call a professional.
  3. Self help advice for bedbug control.
