There’s no doubt that people have been dealing with bed bugs for a long time. Any time you watch a movie set in the middle ages with a quaint little inn, just know that in real life that inn would leave the character with bed bug bites the next morning. Any time you see a movie set during the early days of New York City, you should also imagine beds full of the little suckers.
Also, there’s no doubt that, for as long as there have been beds and bed bugs, people have been looking for ways to get rid of them. There have been many ways to deal with them over the years, and they just don’t work, or, at best, only lessen the problem: taking a mattress outside and beating it, harsh chemicals, heating the room. But they just don’t seem to work.
So, in keeping with the title of this article, we’re going to discuss some of the things you shouldn’t do when it comes to getting rid of bed bugs.
After all, you could get an all-natural bed bug treatment that actually works…
...or you could call an exterminator.
First of all, you have to be there to meet the exterminator. You’ll have to find a time that works for both of you, and that might mean taking time off from work. It certainly means inviting a stranger into your home.
Then you’re going to let this exterminator paw your bed. Now if you’re like us, you don’t even invite your best friends into your bedroom. The bedroom is a sanctuary, and usually, it’s only family members who are allowed in. And even if you’re showing off your new house to a friend, they’re not going to go handling your bed!
When we put it that way, our all-natural bed bug spray is sounding pretty good, isn't it?
...or you could invite all those chemicals into your house.
Oh right, the bed bug exterminator will probably be recommending harsh chemicals. You see, the bed bugs that exist today are the descendants of the ones that survived the harsh chemicals of the 1920s-1980s. Many of them can withstand the old weaker pesticides, so stronger pesticides have to be used...right in your bedroom. Where you sleep. Do you really want those chemicals in your bedroom?
...or you could let the neighbors know you have bed bugs.
Hey, when the exterminator shows up, what’s on the side of their van? Is it a nondescript van, or is it one that promises dead bugs? If they specialize in bed bug extermination, it’s probably going to say so. Do you really want either one of those pulled up at your curb for the whole neighborhood to see?
We know very well that having bed bugs doesn’t mean you have a dirty home. But unfortunately, people still judge you for having them. No, it’s not fair, but it is the truth.
...or you could suffer the costs.
How much does bed bug treatment cost? Most of the time you’ll pay between $500 and $1500 (or more for some treatments), and that’s for just one visit from the exterminator.
Now, compare that to our bed bug killing spray, which is under $20 for a bottle. If that doesn’t handle it for you, you can spend up to — get this — $179 for a bundle that includes the spray, bed bug traps, a bed bug light, a steam cleaner, and more! For a fraction of the cost, you can get a complete bed bug eradication solution, and many of the items can be used again and again.
Sure, you could do all of the above, but why when there are all-natural remedies for bed bugs that cost a lot less and can be accomplished much more discreetly?
Instead of inviting a stranger into your home to deal with your bed, letting him spray chemical around your bed, bedroom, and the rooms of your kids, all while letting the neighbors know and being charged an arm and a leg for it...why not try something that will actually work first? That’s the best bed bug treatment around.
