Getting Rid of Bed Bugs
Bed bugs sadly are a common problem in many households all over the United States. The reason for the common occurrence of bed bugs in households is actually our problem as a species alone. Like some other animals and insects, the evolution of bed bugs have a greatly been influenced by our creating of environmental conditions compatible for this species of bed bugs to actually thrive under. The common bedbug that we see in our homes is actually an insect that basically exclusively lives off of the blood of humans. While it is true that bed bugs live of mammalian warm blood and will go after whatever is possible, these bed bugs have adapted to live off of human blood. They will still bite your dogs and cats, but with bed bugs, they are quick to go into hiding when noticed.
This species of bed bugs have adapted to our habits as humans of sleeping on a mattress in a room that may have some clutter in it, an open seam in the mattress for the bed bugs to live in, or a crack in the foundation that possibly could have led to their arrival. A bed bug will usually come from another environment that has bed bugs, commonly motels, hotels, used furniture, or a friend of family members house.
If you notice a bed bug very early on, and know the source of where it come from, it can be much easier to kill a bedbugs population, than it would be if you notice them too late. Once a bed bug begins to lay it's eggs after establishing a reasonable shelter, getting rid of them becomes much harder in these conditions.

Why you Must Remove Bed Bugs ASAP in Oakland, CA
Bed bug eggs are the hardest part about bed bugs to get rid of, and why so many pest control companies won't do bed bug control. After inspecting common areas where bed bugs will use shelter and lay their eggs, the eggs must be destroyed to ensure there is no chance a bed bug infestation will come along. If you don't find the eggs, then even many of the strongest bug bombs won't stop a bed bug infestation from growing since the eggs usually survive bug bombs, and then in a couple weeks, when that egg becomes a reproductive bed bug, you're left at square one.
One of the most common requests we get as a pest control company is for bed bug exterminator services. Bed bugs are known to be one of the toughest pests to eliminate, and often it will take someone with professional bed bug control experience like ourselves to guarantee families that their bed bug problems will be exterminated!
After laying eggs, a bed bug population can grow at an extraordinary rate. A bed bug can become fully reproductive about 50 days after being laid as an egg. A female bed bug can lay up to 12 eggs a day. And the alarming rate of that egg becoming a reproductive bed bug, which can be done in a matter of a few weeks, that bed bug infestation becomes a real problem when multiple generations of bed bugs are laying eggs. It becomes much more difficult having to deal with a multiple of reproductive bed bugs that are laying eggs because they may not all be harboring their young in the same area. Inspections become more difficult to find all of the bed bug eggs to destroy, and the likelihood of the bed bugs sticking around longer increases. The day you notice them should be the day you begin to kill them.
How To Get Rid Of Bed Bugs
In preparation for a professional bed bug exterminator coming to your home, you should do a couple things to help speed up the process of bed bug removal.
First off, if you have located an area that the bedbugs are currently living in, make sure to clean ALL of the surrounding area. If they were near your bed, you should clean all of your bedding, pillowcases, curtains, clothing, and wash with hot water than dry on hot. For shoes and other items that can't be washed, place in the dryer on hot for a short time. The natural bed bug killing formula is using heat to exterminate them, but it is only reasonable for those bed bugs that are on items that can be placed in the dryer.
Next, pat around and shake up your bed, mattress, hit the walls and any other places that the bed bugs may be sneaking around in and see if you can startle them to get them moving to find other locations they may be in. Take note of these spots.
Use a vacuum to take out as many bed bugs as possible and be sure to keep an eye out for eggs and use the vacuum to destroy any bed bug larvae and eggs around. Take out the bag from the vacuum and dispose of in an outside garbage can immediately, they still may be alive.
Buy a mattress and box spring cover that has a zipper on it and place it over both and zip it up. By doing this trick, if there are any bedbugs remaining in your mattress, you are keeping them inside without food or water until they die within. Bedbugs can live for months without feeding, so keep them contained as long as possible.
Look for any holes or cracks in the walls or baseboards of your home or apartment where a bed bug may have been hiding or snuck in. Seal these cracks to prevent future infestations.
Do a solid cleaning of the area the bed bugs were in to see if you can locate more and destroy them. Sometimes, it is necessary to just get rid of furniture and clothing that you know there is bed bugs infesting in just to see if that helps.
The most promising way to exterminate bed bugs is to hire a professional bed bug exterminator company to efficiently guarantee that they will make the bed bugs all gone. Chemical treatment is normally the way to go when dealing with bed bugs. Use insecticides that are approved for us indoors and only treat furniture and bedding when the label says that it can specifically be used for your bed, couches, and other similar materials.

Hotel, Restaurant, and Commercial Bed Bugs Control
One of the worst things that can happen for a major hotel or restaurant is for a customer to see a bed bug crawling around. And it's much much worse if a bed bug bites them.
When someone discovers bed bugs in a hotel, the risk of word getting out over social media and review sites about a motel or hotel with bed bugs around can be very detrimental to their business. People rightfully so are very irked by the thoughts and feelings of bugs crawling on them at night and most people will run far away from a hotel that has had rumors of bed bugs circulating. Not too many people are willing to sleep in a bed full of bugs. The bad press that can come with bed bugs nowadays, thanks the internet, can be a killer for a business.

Restaurant bed bugs are more uncommon than other pests that may inflict damage on a restaurant's reputation. Cockroaches, mice, and rats are more common pests that restaurants will have to deal with, but bed bugs still will occasionally show up and cause problems for the establishment. Bed bugs are a real health concern, and if a bed bug is seen, the restaurant should shut down and not reopen until the infestation has been taken care of. Most restaurants have many areas for bed bugs to reside in, including very secluded areas where they will not be seen, and within the upholstery, carpet, and other furniture around the restaurant. Since people are often stationary at a restaurant while they eat their food, it is the perfect opportunity for a bed bug to bite and suck the blood off of the visible legs and ankles of a person and still likely not be spotted. But if they are discovered by a customer, this could severely hamper the reputation that your company has built.
Bed bug treatment usually take more than one appointment to be considered a thorough treatment. Since bed bug eggs are more resilient than the bed bugs themselves in surviving chemical treatments, it is very beneficial to have a follow up appointment a couple weeks after the initial fumigation and spraying to re-apply and eliminate any other signs. Since eggs are more resilient, they may survive the bedbug fumigation and be in the process of becoming reproducing insects that could return with a wrath.
If your restaurant or hotel is having a pest problem, it is supremely important to ensure that it was a one time occurrence so you can confidently tell your customers that it won't happen again. If your company says that you have taken care of bed bugs, or any type of pest for that matter, only to have them return again, your reputation will be tarnished even further and with the internet, it will be even harder to recoup in the future.
If you are a customer at a hotel or motel, inspect your own bed before you lay in it. Don't always trust that it has been done before you came in.
