If you’ve ever had bed bugs but couldn’t seem to get rid of them for the life of you, this is going to answer all your burning questions. The creepy crawly bugs that go bump in the night are everyone’s worst nightmare. So why is it that when you buy bedbug poison from the store it doesn’t seem to work? Simple. The over-the-counter products just aren’t strong enough. Instead of killing them, the bedbugs become exposed to a low-enough dose of poison to build immunities to them. The result are legions of super bedbugs that are becoming more and more resistant to poison. The solution is to call a professional pest control service. These services uses a much higher dosage of poison, and they do so safely for you, your family, and pets.

The Doctors also provide a few more tips during this segment. Despite popular belief, whatever you do: do not throw out that mattress or any other contaminated material. As your dragging the mattress out, all you’re doing is spreading the bedbugs throughout the home. While there are preventative measures you can take in a hotel to stop bedbugs, in most cases it’s impossible. Bedbugs can hop onto your clothing at movie theaters or clothing stores at any time. The only thing you can do once you have them is contain them into one area and seek professional help.
