Bed Bug Control In Philadelphia

Protect Your Home From Bed Bugs With Harpoon Pest Solutions

Keeping bed bugs out of your Philadelphia home is no easy task, especially for people who secondhand shop, travel, or spend a lot of time in other bed bug hotspots. What's even worse, if you get a bed bug infestation, it can be virtually impossible to get rid of on your own.

You might read online that you can repel bed bugs with simple solutions like baking soda or essential oils, but the reality is that you will likely need professional solutions to eliminate a bed bug problem, particularly one that has spread through your house, as bed bug infestations tend to do. This means you will want to take measures to avoid developing a bed bug problem and keep a weathered eye out for signs of bed bugs so that you can catch any issues early.

The Problems Bed Bugs Can Cause In Your Philadelphia Home

Bed bugs are considered a nuisance pest. They do not spread disease, they cannot sting, and they don't destroy property. Thus, you might think it's not all that high a priority to keep bed bugs out of your house. However, bed bugs will seem a lot worse than a nuisance if you actually wind up with a bed bug problem.

This is because they live in your furniture, preferably your bed, and come out to feed on you while you sleep. If you have a bed full of bed bugs, you will be waking up with bites all over you every morning. This can lead to problems sleeping because of anxiety surrounding going to bed when you know you're sharing your bed with a gaggle of bugs.

Another major problem with bed bugs is their ability to breed clandestinely and spread all over your house before you realize there's a problem. Many times, when you just have a few bed bugs, you attribute any bites you get to mosquitoes or other outdoor insects. By the time you realize your bites are from bed bugs, they might just have already spread from your bed to the rest of your house. This can mean you might have to have your house bombed or even tented. That's why it's so vital to catch bed bug problems early.
