Professional Bed Bug Treatments In Portland, Maine
Bed bugs are expert travelers that move from place to place quite easily. They use people and belongings and travel under floors and through walls to discover new places to infest and people to bite. While bed bugs are often associated with travel, the truth is you can pick up these pests anywhere people congregate including apartments, hotels, hospitals, movie theaters, college dorms. To protect your family from bed bugs and to keep them out of your home, our Maine-based bed bug control team has the following bed bug prevention tips to offer:
Inspect EVERYTHING that you bring into your home. Mattresses, furniture, new clothes, purses, suitcases, secondhand goods – everything!
Think twice about buying used. While most of like to save a buck when we can, purchasing used items is not without risk. Unless you know who you’re buying from and are meticulous in your inspection of the item, we suggest not buying used items – especially furniture and mattresses!
Research before you travel. When you’re planning a vacation, you probably run a few searches on where to stay, where to eat, what to do, etc. We recommend adding vetting your hotel for bed bug issues. Read reviews to see if other visitors have found bed bugs in their hotel rooms and look at other online sources like bed bug registries to see if your accommodation makes that list of shame.
Check your lodgings carefully. We know inspecting your hotel room for bed bugs is not necessarily how you want to start your vacation but we must insist upon it. The alternative is bringing these bugs home with you and having to pay for remediation.
Complete a post-trip inspection. Once your home from a vacation or business trip, don’t unpack your suitcase inside your home. Instead take care of that chore in the garage or even outside and be sure to look over each item carefully for these small bugs. If you don’t see any, head straight for the washing machine and clean clothes on the highest temperature your fabrics will allow.
