With the end of the holiday season, bed bug infestations continue to increase across Canada. This tiny insect can hide in suitcases and clothes and then settle in our bedrooms quickly infesting our homes and making it impossible for us to enjoy a peaceful night's sleep. Bus or airplane seats and second-hand furniture or clothing can also be hiding spots in which bed bugs lurk for a new host.
Having made a strong comeback in the last two decades, bed bug infestations remain a growing problem in Canada's largest city.
It is sufficient for a female animal to enter an apartment or a house to kickstart a sizeable infestation because a single female can carry eggs for up to 300 offspring. Often the blood-sucking parasites are only noticed when they have already multiplied and the occupants of a home fall prey to stings of numerous bed bugs.
One thing that makes an early intervention difficult is that these insects are hard to see during the day. Bed bugs tend to hide behind drywall inside mattrasses and bed frames or even light switches. Because detecting a bed bug infestation can be difficult if there are only a few bed bugs in a home or the insects have found deep hiding places, it is important to hire an experienced bed bug exterminator who can make a clear and reliable diagnosis.
Once an apartment or a house becomes infested with bed bugs, only one thing can help - a professional pest control company with access to the industry's best bed bug removal products. Bed bugs require specialized chemicals that can tackle the complex life cycle and biology of a highly resilient and adept insect. The chances of having a successful bed bug extermination without using such advanced chemicals are very slim. Bed bugs are hard to control. Only the most nuanced bed bug treatment protocols implemented by highly trained and experienced technicians can deliver a successful outcome in a single treatment.
Unfortunately, you can hardly protect yourself against a bed bug infestation. It is quite common for Torontonians to bring these insects into their houses after a vacation. Hotels, in particular, have recently been struggling with bed bug infestations. In large residential complexes such as apartment and condominium buildings, the insects can spread easily from one unit to the next. In such cases, only systematic control measures can help to get rid of these pests. The infestation can only be eliminated if a professional bed bug control strategy is developed and deployed.
A common misconception is that bed bugs appear in a home because of poor hygiene. Contrary to this assumption, the insect's introduction to a home has nothing to do with the existing hygene conditions. The truth of the matter is that the parasite can settle wherever human beings live.
Getting rid of bed bugs for good is a very time-consuming process. Strong and high-stage infestations represent a great challenge even for professionals, which require very thorough work. One of the biggest problems with bed bug control is that the pests can go without food for many months. Leaving a home empty for several weeks or not renting out an hotel room for some time is not going to solve the problem.
Bed bug treatment requires a very precise and careful preparatory work. The quality of the preparatory work is one of the most important factos determining the sucess of a bed bug treatment. That is why TSR's bed bug treatment contains strict preparatory guidelines that our technicians ensure are fully met before a bed bug treamtent commences.
