One myth is that only people who keep dirty homes get bed bugs. Not true, because poor sanitation practices have nothing to do with bed bugs. If you think you’ve found bed bugs, call an experienced professional to come confirm. The most effective mode of eliminating bed bugs is to integrate multiple techniques in the overall control program, plus gaining client cooperation in preparing for the service. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) essentially employs non-chemical techniques and strategies together with treatments to control a pest. Vacuuming results in immediate population reductions. A backpack vacuum provides convenience and ease of use. The ProTeam vacuum provides excellent suction for removal of bed bugs from surfaces and the HEPA filter helps capture any potential allergens dislodged from surfaces during the process.
