Most property sales involve a termite inspection because people want to know if they are going to have to spend a lot of money fixing termite damage. Bed bugs are an epidemic in all parts of the nation and most parts of the world. They infest homes, hotels, and even cars and planes. They do not care if you are rich or poor or what you look like or who you are. They care only that you have blood because they feed almost exclusively on human blood.
The Cost Of Bed Bug Infestations
The cost can range from $1,500 for an initial treatment to as much as $10,000. That wide range in costs is due to the need for repeat treatments. Bed bugs are difficult to kill because they are nocturnal and they hide in places like your walls. They also hide and lay eggs in beds which make them difficult to treat with pesticides because nobody wants to sleep on a bed that is treated with pesticides. The treatment options for bed bugs is steam and heat because these soft-bodied bugs cannot handle heat. Steam works well because it travels in spots where pesticides usually do not go and you can steam a bed without increasing the risk of cancer or other diseases.
