Three Tricks To Keep From Bringing Bed Bugs Into Your Gilbert Home

The most important fact you can know about bed bugs is that they are hitchhiking pests. Bed bugs don’t live in your yard or get into your home the way a long list of other pests do. If you hope to prevent bed bug infestations, you need to be proactive about keeping these bugs from coming home with you, your family, and anyone who stays in your home.

Here are the three best suggestions from the on-staff bed bug control experts here at Green Home Pest Control:

  • Perform bed bug inspections: When it comes to bed bugs, it is best that you see them before they see you. We recommend performing a bed bug inspection any time you stay somewhere away from home, even if it is the home of a friend or family member. Use the section below titled: How To Know If There Is A Bed Bug Problem In Your Gilbert Home to find bed bugs while away from home.
  • Protect your laundry: Bed bugs are strongly attracted to the scent of laundry items. These insects survive on blood and they have a preference for humans. You smell good to them—and so does your laundry. Store laundry in a sealed plastic bag to keep bed bugs out. A trash bag and a bread tie are all that is needed.
  • Inspect furniture: Bed bugs don’t just come into your home with luggage and clothing. They can be brought into your home from another home by way of used furniture items. Perform a detailed inspection before you bring any used furniture into your home.

These tips can offer you quite a bit of protection against having a bed bug infestation. If bed bugs find a way into your Gilbert home, contact Green Home Pest Control for heat remediation or a targeted bed bug treatment.
