Well it’s summer again, which means peak bed bug season. So I thought I’d drop a quick blog with some new facts I found on the web. Watch this video, because this is where bed bugs tend to hide the most.
How to Get Rid of Bedbugs: Check Your Box Spring of your Mattress
This is one of the most common and preventable ways of getting rid of that bed bug problem, fast. Check your boxspring, because this is where 70% of the bedbugs are actually hiding.
Best (and Worst) Ways to Kill a Bed Bug
Don’t be silly. Staying up for nights on end with a spray bottle filled with alcohol is just going to leave you exhausted and it won’t get rid of bed bugs’ eggs. That’s right. For every bed bug you see, there’s probably 10 more you don’t see.
So just say no to contact killers like bed bug spray. They’re basically a for-profit scheme by existing bed bug repellent product makers. Trust me I know. I get emails from these companies saying “We listened to our customers and came up with a spray killer for bed bugs.” This is only a marketing trick and it relies on the age-old misconception that you have to shoot something in order to kill it, and again it will set you off in the wrong direction, but with less money for a 100% solution.
Bedbugsos.ca Review (and other online bed bug supply stores)
My cousin is a real estate professional that lives in Canada. As a part of her normal business she has to deal with selling and renting houses, and of course some tenants leave behind bed bugs. So when she needed a solution sent to multiple units and tenants, this company thought she was running a scam. So they did not even ship the orders out and demanded an explanation for the multiple orders, even after they kept her money.
Being naturally sassy like myself she cussed them out, and almost had to contact her credit card company after making some threats. She eventually got her money back, but it took 10 days and her tenants never got their much-needed bed bug killer. Talk about a waste of time. And money.
The problem with a lot of these online bed bug supply stores is they don’t even try to get you the best bed bug treatment or solution. They try to sell you a bunch of merchandise. Like how they try to Super Size your Quarter Pounder w Cheese Extra Value Meal at McDonalds. This is great for them and horrible for you, and also a big reason I made this blog to help people learn how to get rid of bedbugs once and for all, without spending unnecessary dollars, especially in this economy.
So remember: check your box spring, pray but don’t spray, and keep the high costs of bed bugs away.
Good luck and have a bed bug bite-free summer.
