Bed bugs disturb the peace in the sanctuary you call home. They can inhabit your mattress and pillows, bite you in the night, and leave you with itchy welts. They multiply in the blink of an eye and are stubborn about leaving. You can try “do-it-yourself” methods but they’ll likely fail. For one, you’d have to find every bed bug egg, baby, and adult to really wipe them out. That is a next-to-impossible task. Second, these pests have resistance to most retail insecticides. Third, they can go months without feeding, so starving them doesn’t work.
