A specialized pest control company is undoubtedly your best helpmate when it comes to getting rid of those annoying bed bugs in your home. Many pest companies can be found all over the place today, but very few of them can get the job done as desired. Many of them lack the required in-depth knowledge about how to handle bed bugs. In fact, many pest control companies are started with the sole purpose to make get started as quick and cheap as possible and sell themselves to a bigger company like Orkin. (This is not us, Mantis Pest solutions is a local company here to stay) Consequently, you will not get the right value for your money when you hire them.  If you have a bed bug infestation you should go with a specialized bed bug exterminator rather than generic pest control companies that have limited knowledge and can only deliver poor bed bug removal services.

The points given below will further enlighten you on why you should specifically search for a bed bug exterminator near me, rather than generic pest control companies.

Reduced reliance on pesticides

Most of the professional bed bug experts do not depend on specific insecticides for removing bed bugs. Bed Bugs are very unique and a general spray that most companies use for spiders, fleas, and ants will not treat for bed bugs.  A DIY person or unprofessional exterminator will usually misapply toxins while removing bed bugs and this can prove too dangerous for those residing there. Wrong or excess application of toxic compounds for the extermination of bed bugs can cause your family members to fall sick. It is on record that many of the generic pest control companies apply just any chemical, which may have little or no effect on the bed bugs; this is never the case with specialized bed bug exterminators; the specialists only use chemicals composed purposely for bed bug removal, which ensures a quick resolution of the problem.

However, specialists are licensed and trained to use the correct bed bug spray as well, as the new and most effective bed bug treatment called thermal remediation, more commonly known as bed bug heat treatment.  Bed bug specialists also scrutinize the situation before deciding on any particular line of action. Although bed bug spraying for bed bugs can be effective and be a good fit for those on a low budget it is always recommended to go with the heat treatment because it is the most effective and safest bed bug removal treatment around. In some cases, a combination may be necessary.

Less cleaning

The use of specific chemicals by a bed bug company removes the need to carry out extensive cleaning after the bed bug extermination. It will equally be easy to sanitize the home after the entire process so that the smell of the toxic products can be removed effectively and quickly to create a safer interior than ever.  The use of heat treatment method can even eliminate the need for any special cleaning after the bed bug removal process. However, it is still recommended to clean bed sheets and vacuum your home regardless after a treatment to remove any dead bed bugs or eggs that might have been left behind.

Money Saving

Reliance on specialized bed bug experts can save you a lot of money. As hinted earlier, the specialists use bed bug sprays and heat treatment that actually work and most will offer a protection guarantee, coming back for free if not resolved whereas many general pest control companies plan on having to come for multiple treatments and give you a lower initial cost to get you in the door.  Conclusively, the specialist bed bug removers will give you more value for your money at a far lower price than the generic pest control companies.

Along with giving you more value, local bed bug companies are far more reasonable than pest control franchises. Franchises have a lot more overhead and marketing costs they have to calculate as compared to many local companies. Most local companies are less expensive, plus you are supporting a neighbor instead of franchise companies where the company headquarters is on the other side of the country.
