Understanding Garden Pest Control

I still remember when I planted my first garden. I was so excited to get started that I completely overlooked the massive pest problem brewing in my yard. Unfortunately, as soon as I planted my crops, I was confronted with the harsh realities of pests munching through all of my veggies. It was devastating, but I knew that I needed to make things right. I decided to contact a professional exterminator to see if he could help. He came out, checked out the pests that were plaguing the area, and treated the earth with the right pesticides. I made this website to help you to understand garden pest control, so that you can reap your harvest.

What to Expect with a Bed Bug Treatment and How You Can Help


Bed bugs are very tiny pests that can spread quickly throughout your home and cause a number of itchy bite marks on your body, and anyone else in your home as well. If you have bed bugs, you may not even realize it until you have an infestation. Bed bugs are only about the size of an apple seed when they are full size. An inspection of your mattress is one way to look for bed bugs, although you may have them on your other furniture in your home as well. If you have an infestation and are looking for a pest control company to help you treat these pests, you may want to know what to expect. Read on for what to expect and how you may be able to help.

What To Expect

A professional pest control specialist will inspect your home thoroughly to figure out where these pests are in your home. Once they have figured out where to find the pests, they will begin to treat the areas to kill any live pests they see. Once the area is treated, they may come back to inspect your home again to see if they can spot any new signs of these pests, or if they can find any live pests still in your home. This continued pest maintenance can help prevent bed bugs and other pests from coming into your home after the initial treatment. The specialist may offer suggestions to prevent pests from coming to your home in the first place in addition to advice about how to prevent further issues.

What You Can Do

To help control the pests in your home, you should wash everything you have in the hottest water. Wrap all of your mattresses in a protective cover to prevent bed bugs from being able to get into your bed. You should wash all of your bedding and put pillows or anything that isn't washable into a sealed bag for at least 48 hours to kill these pests that may remain on your belongings. Putting clothing away instead of leaving it on the floor is another way to help prevent pests such as bed bugs. They can be hiding in your clothing and other items stored on the floor. Throw away clutter and items you no longer need to clean up your home.

If you have bed bugs and are seeking treatment, talk to a pest control company about what you can expect and other ways you can help with bed bug control.
