How To Deal With Bedbug Infestations

The first step when you think that you have an infestation of bed bugs Abu Dhabi is to make sure that the infestation is actually of bedbugs and not some other type of pest. Remember that the treatment for different types of pests is different, so you might have to be sure that what you are dealing with is what you are going to be practicing control methods for. If you can find one of the insects and compare them to pictures on the internet, you have a chance of making sure what your pest problem really is. Now, once you know that the pest is a bug, the key is not to run down the street screaming bloody murder. Nope. Have the decency to put some clothes on at the very least before you do that, and spare the innocent civilians on the roads the horror of seeing you and your cooties.

Do not panic

If you panic, you are going to get yourself in trouble, and not just with the police for public exposure. It is actually a simple process that can be used to get rid of bed bugs and it may take time but it definitely isn’t impossible. Don’t take the nuclear option and burn all the sheets, mattresses and headboards in your home down to the ground. Buying all that anew is going to be expensive, and it is going to set you back quite a pretty penny. Unless you’re a millionaire, in which case go ahead and do that.

Then, you need to sit down (not on the bed, please) and think about the options that you have when it comes to pest control. If you have a family and children, it is probably best not to immediately resort to pesticides. They can come into contact with young kids and cause a whole host of problems that can directly affect you. IPM or Integrated Pest Management methods are just as effective and not nearly as dangerous.

Clean up!

Before you begin the actual debugging of your bed bugs remember to clean the place up first. There are lots of little places that these critters can hide in. If you want to make the process as painless as possible for you, simply clean up all that clutter in your bedroom.

Before moving anything out of the room, check it to make sure that there are no bugs on them. You don’t want to risk spreading the infestation to the rest of the house. As with the zombie apocalypse, containment is your first priority.
