We Do Not Recommend Doing The Following Things:
Throwing Your Bed On The Curb.
People walk their dogs. Children walk to school. Why would you do that?
Hiding It From Your Landlord.
It is important to be honest and report it immediately. Provide the request for treatment in writing.
Setting Off Bug Bombs/ Foggers.
These are an awful way to control any pest.
Using Alcohol, Borax Or Anything Not Specifically Labeled For Bed Bug Control.
You are putting the health and safety of those around you at risk by using a product against its intended use.
Applying Over-The-Counter Sprays.
We feel that pyrethroids are becoming ineffective. Their repellent nature often complicates the issue.
Applying Diatomaceous Earth Or Other Dust In Exposed Areas Of The Home.
This is potentially dangerous when inhaled. We have yet to see this product applied correctly by a homeowner.

Never Rely On Symptoms Of A Bite To Diagnose The Presence Of Bed Bugs?
People react different to bites than other people. Around 20% of people have little to no reaction at all! Do not automatically decide that you have bed bugs when you wake up with a bite. Spiders can get trapped in your clothes at night, It could simply be an allergic reaction. Carpet beetle larvae also can cause irritation that appears as a streak, or “row of bites”. Early introductions can be hard to find. We recommend locating physical evidence before applying any pesticides on your own or paying for treatment.
Different Life Stages Of Cimex lectularius
Bed bugs have eggs, larvae (nymphs), and adults.
All stages are clearly visible to the naked eye.
They go through a process of development called gradual metamorphosis.
Eggs take approximately ten days to hatch under normal conditions. They are nearly clear at first. As the embryo develops a red eye will become visible. Hatched eggs will remain glued in place for some time. These egg cases will have the emergence hole popped up like a hatch.
Sexually immature juveniles are called nymphs. They molt (shed their exoskeletons) 5 times before becoming an adult. Each stage requires a blood meal before molting into the next stage of development (instar). Earlier instars can appear yellow in color.
Adults are approximately 5.5 mm in size. Males are more pointed at the base of their abdomen, while females are more rounded. A pregnant female or pair of sexes are required for develop an infestation. Otherwise it is called an introduction.
