How do you eliminate bed bugs from your home?
We’ve all joked with someone at bedtime at some point in our lives, telling them, “Don’t let the bed bugs bite.” However, a bed bug infestation is no laughing matter. These insects are drawn into our homes due to their taste for human blood. They’ve earned their name by preferring to live in soft furnishings such as beds, but they can be found in other pieces of furniture and even clothing. While the thought of these insects drinking our blood is off-putting, there is very little risk of illness or disease. Typically, these bites cause skin irritation as an allergic response to their saliva – although that doesn’t mean we should allow their existence in our homes. If you suspect these pests are taking up residence in your furniture, contact the exterminators at Imel Pest Control!

Imel Pest Control is committed to eliminating these pests from your home and our methods are not limited to those listed above. We provide 4 treatments over a two-month timeframe to ensure the complete extermination of these nuisances. In addition to treating the bed and room, homeowners can kill bed bugs and their eggs that may be residing in clothing through simply utilizing their home’s clothes dryer. A high heat cycle of 45 minutes is enough to completely wipe them out. However, heating rooms simply causes the bed bugs to retract into the walls and baseboards which is why the proper application of pesticides in those spaces is required.
