There is no question about it, bed bugs are on the rise. In the past few years, we are seeing more and more bed bug infestations all over the United States, but unfortunately, as these infestations become more common, there are also more myths about bed bugs circulating. At Northwest K9 Bed Bug Detectives, we don’t just provide you with the bed bug dog inspections that you need, we also want to make sure you have the most accurate information. That is why we have come up with this list of the top 3 myths about bed bugs:

  1. Bed bugs only live in dirty places- Bed bugs don’t discriminate, and they  can show up even in the cleanest places! Don’t think that just because you booked a fancy hotel that you are safe from bed bugs.
  2. If only one person in your home has bites, you don’t have bed bugs- We all react differently to bed bugs, so if you are the only one that has bites, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you don’t have bed bugs, it just means that you are the only one that has that kind of reaction.
  3. You can get rid of bed bugs on your own- Many of the products out there that claim to work may kill the visible bed bugs, but in order to kill the entire bed bug population in your home, you really need to turn to a professional bed bug exterminator.

If you think that there is a possibility that you have bed bugs in your home, give us a call! Our experts can offer you the bed bug treatment that you need to rest easy.
