Whether a bed bug infestation is in your home or business, we know the terror it can cause and the urgency it needs to be dealt with.

Can I eliminate bed bugs on my own?
According to many DIY websites, you can eradicate bed bugs naturally at home rubbing alcohol or essential oils like lavender, tea tree, or peppermint oil. Some of these home treatments are effective, but you must see each insect individually and use the items directly on them. Bed bugs are excellent at locating hiding spots; this is how they have endured for so long. They may also easily avoid detection due to their small size, even when they are in plain view. Finding every bed bug and killing them all at once using a home treatment is practically impossible.
In a few months, an existing single-mated female and her young can re-infest your land. But unfortunately, you are more likely to wind up with furniture that smells like peppermint if you use these DIY treatments than to find a cure for your bed insect problem.
Do pesticides and bed bug sprays work?
Insecticides and sprays for bed bugs are widely available. However, they typically aren’t very effective unless you know the bed bugs’ precise location and hiding locations, similar to DIY methods. Various pesticides have developed a tolerance to bed bugs over time, so depending on what you use, it might not work. It can be quite challenging for these solutions to function because bed bugs generally hide in places that things like spray or foggers can’t penetrate. Additionally, it would be best to exercise extra caution when using these substances because misuse could endanger your family and pets. Best to get help from professional exterminators to lessen the risk.
Can bed bugs be permanently eliminated?
Although bed bugs can be eliminated, there is a potential that they will return to your house or place of business. This is particularly prevalent in multi-family housing, such as apartments or condominiums, where bed bugs can be easily transported from unit to unit.
The best defense is professional, thorough inspections from Freedom Pest; if you discover bed bugs in a multi-family building, let the property manager know immediately. If you have a problem, probably, your neighbors do too, and things might quickly spiral out of control.
