Risking Your Life for Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are a major pain. Once they infest your home they are almost impossible to completely get rid of. It can take months and thousands of dollars to get your life back after a bed bug infestation. When bed bugs attack people can go to some pretty drastic measures to get rid of the pests. Sometimes they go too far.

Some of the extreme measures people go to are pouring alcohol or kerosene all over the house, a very dangerous thing to do, as you could set your home on fire. Many people try using pesticides that are specifically supposed to be used outside because of the danger they can pose to human health. On the bright side, bed bugs are pretty much only a danger to your home. They don’t tend to infest schools or busy offices because they can’t survive in those environments. Officials strongly advise that you leave the treatment of bed bugs to the professionals, for your own safety as well as others.

Has your home ever been infested with bed bugs? What did you do to get rid of them? How long did it take and how expensive was it?
