How to Make Sure Bed Bugs Don’t Come Back

If you’ve ever had bed bugs, then you know how irritating they can be. Try as you might, these tiny little vampire-like pests can return again and again to feed off of your blood while you sleep. As troublesome as they seem, luckily for most people they do not cause major illness. 

Bed bugs are also not considered dangerous to humans, but they can cause allergic reactions in those with underlying health issues. In Tennessee, bed bugs love to hang out in homes and commercial businesses due to the generally mild weather and humidity.

Still, a bed bug infestation needs to be taken care of to the point of eradication. Read on to find out how to make sure bed bugs don’t come back.

Verify That You Actually Have a Bed Bug Infestation

Here’s how to confirm you have a beg bug infestation: 

  • Identify that your pests are actually bed bugs and not ticks or fleas or something else. 
  • We have experts who can perform bed bug inspections for you.
  • Bed bugs are normally a reddish-brown color.

Don’t Run for the Pesticide

A lot of in-store pesticides only work temporarily on bed bugs. At Dayton’s Pest Control Services, our highly trained team can get rid of these infestations once and for all. We even offer a Pest Control Guarantee to put you at ease.  

Wash Everything, Then Repeat

Make a routine of washing your bedding, include pillows and cases, blankets and sheets more often if you experience a bed bug outbreak. Pest feces, fluids and eggs will stick easily to unwashed fabrics. Always dry your items using high heat to kill any remaining bug eggs. 

Be Kind to Strangers

If you decide you need to simply get rid of your bed bug littered mattress or other items, destroy them by cutting or slashing if possible. This should prevent anyone from taking the item from where you left it out and bringing it home with them.
