One aspect of bed bug treatment that we know for sure is that you can, get rid of bed bugs and can usually eliminate them in a reasonable time frame (2-4 treatments).  The two approaches widely accepted by professionals to treat for bed bugs are heat treatment and a pesticide-based protocol (often using non-chemical approaches in conjunction with pesticides to address resistance concerns).  Both of these approaches can be extremely successful in eliminating bed bugs if applied appropriately by a knowledgeable pest professional.

Before I get into my position on bed bug preparations (preparing for a bed bug treatment) I want everyone reading this to understand one very important thing: what you need to do for a bed bug treatment is pest control company specific. Meaning that every company is going to have a different list of things you need to do to prepare for THEIR bed bug treatment. I can’t comment on what’s right and wrong with every company and every list and I’m going to share MY perspective on the topic based upon the bed bug work we perform in New Jersey.

Developing a game plan is the first step in effectively executing a goal or objective. Treating for bed bugs is no different. You need to understand your opponent, how they behave, what their goals are and use those facts to effectively attack your opponent. Yet many times both homeowners and professionals just go out and buy whatever tools we find that are supposed to treat for bed bugs and then attack a home without doing any research on what our opponent is doing.
