Bed Bug Do Not's

What Not To Do When You Find Out You Have Bed Bugs

  • Do not panic!  We can help you solve this problem.
  • Do NOT go to Wal-mart or Lowes and buy over the counter “Bed Bug Killing Chemicals.”   This will only cause the bugs to migrate throughout your home!
  • Self-treating your home is rarely effective.
  • Do not throw away your furniture. Beds and other furniture can be treated for bed bugs. Throwing away your furniture can spread the bugs and you have to buy new furniture.
  • Do not move out of your house unless you absolutely have to, you will most likely bring the bed bugs with you.
  • Do not try to kill bed bugs by using agricultural or garden pesticides. Using outdoor pesticides to control bed bugs can make you or your family very sick.
  •  Do NOT move things from room to room. Moving your things from the room with bed bugs to another room in your house may spread the bed bugs.
  • Do not wrap items in black plastic and place in the sun. It will not get hot enough to kill all the bugs.
  • Do NOT procrastinate!  The problem will not go away by itself.
