Every business suffers from occasional flies or ants, but having bed bugs can cause you to lose valuable customers along with your good reputation. It’s not just the hotel and hospitality industry that’s affected by bed bugs. These blood-sucking parasites have been known to infest everything from office buildings to libraries to laundromats. And although it’s tempting to try to save money and take care of a bed bug infestation yourself, it’s just not a good idea. If there are bed bugs in your Hawaiian business, here’s why you should call the pros.
Bed bugs are not easy to eliminate, especially with do-it-yourself methods. These parasitic insects are only 3/16 to 1/4 inch in length, which allows them to hide unseen in areas where people gather. Besides their tiny size, bed bugs can be recognized by oval-shaped bodies, six legs, and a reddish-brown color. But you and your customers are more likely to notice bed bug bites before you see any actual bed bugs.
If your business has bed bugs, you naturally want to take care of the problem as quickly and effectively as possible. But although over-the-counter and store-bought products may be somewhat useful, they can be a waste of money.
Many business owners believe that treating their bed bug problem on their own will be cheaper than paying for professional pest control services. But without the proper experience, store-bought bed bug control products often miss places where bed bugs hide, and the infestation will continue.
There are a number of convincing DIY bed bug control products available for your business. They might seem promising, but many require repeated treatments and a huge amount of preparation to use properly. And the price for treating your bed bugs by yourself might not be as cheap as you think. On average, bed bug control supplies can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
Even the simplest treatments cost about $300. Including chemicals, mattress covers, and vapor strips, standard bed bug control is a big commitment of time and energy. All mattresses and furniture must be covered and harsh aerosol chemicals are blasted onto affected areas. This process must be repeated weekly until all bed bugs have been eliminated — which might not even happen.
Bed bug heaters can raise the temperature to a level that bed bugs can’t survive. It’s a powerful and chemical-free method that’s becoming increasingly popular. Bed bug heaters can cost anywhere from $200 to over $1000. These products can eliminate existing infestations, but don’t protect against future infestations. And if you aren’t careful, a bed bug heater can easily start a fire.
The biggest problem with store-bought bed bug control is this: if you miss even a single bed bug, the infestation will continue and you will have to purchase those expensive products all over again. It’s better to trust professional services to eliminate the problem and prevent new infestations from happening.
