Bed Bug Infestation

How To Know If You Have One

Bed bugs are like ninjas when it comes to being able to find them. They can go unnoticed for long periods , and by the time you notice them… it is too late. This is mainly due to the minuscule size of the bed bugs. However, if you know how to perform a routine bedbug check on your home, you will be able to prevent a future infestation. Below, we also have a couple of tips for the homeowner suffering from a current infestation and plans to have a professional come to their home for treatment.

How To Prevent A Bed Bug Infestation

The best way to solve an infestation is by never having one. The best way to deal with bed bugs is to prevent an infestation from happening. That is why we took the time to put together a list of ways to keep bed bugs from entering your home.

  • Cover your mattress and box spring with bed bug covers. This helps narrow their hiding spots.
  • Keep clutter off the floors and habitually vacuum at least a couple of times a week.
  • Keep your bedding clothes clean.
  • Make sure your home is properly sealed. Caulk baseboard and make sure window screens are in good shape. /li>
  • If you have pets, make sure to check them and their bedding regularly for signs of bed bug activity.
  • If you plan to bring in second-hand furniture, make sure to check it thoroughly before bringing it inside.
  • Have a Fox Pest Control technician come to perform a free inspection in your Lubbock home.

All of these steps can help protect your home from bed bugs, but they are not foolproof. Bed bug infestations are at an all-time high in West Texas. If you notice any activity in your home, it is time to act!

How To Get Rid Of Bed Bugs

If you have checked your home or had a free inspection, and you find out that your home is infested by bed bugs, it's time to act. Ridding your Lubbock home of bed bugs can prove very challenging. That is why we suggest calling Fox Pest Control to have one of our professional techs come for treatments. Due to the microscopic size of bed bugs, there are a few steps a homeowner should take to help maximize the treatment’s effectiveness.

  • Wash and then bag all bed linens, curtains, and clothing.
  • Make sure there is no way for the bed bugs to escape the treatment: Cover all electrical outlets and close all windows.
  • Pull furniture away from walls and make sure window seals are clean and cleared of clutter.

These are just a few tips to help get the most out of your bed bug treatment to help guarantee the complete bed bug eradication.

Pestimonials

We had a wonderful experience with our technician. Weston was easy to talk to and explained everything well. Josh, who sold us the service, was very kind also. Not pushy at all. And very informative. Thank you. We look forward to working with you in the future.

My experience with Fox Pest Control has been the best experience I had with a pest control company. Technician, Harry, did a good job of going over the process thoroughly, ensure that I understood everything going on. I would recommend them to anyone looking for good, quality, fast, friendly, and affordable pest control services.
