Bed Bug Preparation
- Remove all food and water sources. This includes anything that bed bugs could eat or drink, such as food, drinks, pet food, and water dishes.
- Vacuum all surfaces. This includes floors, furniture, carpets, and bedding. Be sure to empty the vacuum bag outside.
- Remove all clutter. This will make it easier for the pest control technician to apply the treatment.
- Pack up any belongings that you do not want to be treated. This includes clothes, bedding, and furniture.
- Cover any electronics or appliances that you do not want to be treated. This includes computers, TVs, and refrigerators.
- Turn off any air conditioning or heating units. This will help to prevent the treatment from being blown away.
- Leave the home or business for at least 2-4 hours after the treatment is complete. This will allow the treatment to dry and be effective.
- Wash all bedding and clothing in hot water.
- Dry all bedding and clothing on high heat.
- Vacuum all surfaces again.
- Inspect your home or business for any signs of bed bugs. If you find any, contact D & D Pest Control Co. for a follow-up treatment.
