At Bug Off Pest Control Center’s 2010 New York Pest Expo Dr. Ballard reviewed the advances in bed bug controls from thermal techniques to insecticides, to detection tools. In part 4 of our series we will provide a detailed approach to controlling bed bugs.
The control of bed bugs is a challenge even for the most experienced and talented pest control professional. It requires thorough inspections and meticulous applications and even so, retreats are common. Treatment options are not as wide as those for roaches or ants and the need for customer cooperation is greater. The major reason for bed bug retreats is poor customer preparation. The client must assist in allowing access to all areas, removing clutter, laundering bedding and clothing and in some cases, disposing of contaminated items.
