A bed bug infestation in your home or business can turn into an uncomfortable itching session sooner or later. When bed bugs invade your property, immediate steps must be taken to eliminate these bloodsucking pests and treat infested areas.
Tips from the Environmental Protection Agency
If you’re going to attempt to rid your property of bed bugs on your own, it’s highly recommend that you carefully follow these safety tips, provided by the Environmental Protection Agency.
• Only use pesticides that have been approved by the EPA. If the product does not carry a registration number from the EPA, which is found on the label, then the product has not been determined to kill bed bugs.
• Never use a pesticide that hasn’t been approved for eliminating bed bugs.
• Never assume you know how to use the product. Read the label from top to bottom to ensure you follow all applicable safety steps and properly use the product. This includes where it can be used, under what conditions, overexposure, and any harmful effects to humans and pets.
• Using both heat and cold techniques are options for NYC pest control. These methods are best administered by a professional NYC pest control company with technicians skilled in the proper use of specialized equipment.
