A few phrases we hear all the time from customers are these: "The bed bugs are only in one room." "Only my roommate was bit so can't we just treat that bed?" or "I only get bit on my couch, do I have to throw this couch away?" "We just threw away all the beds we are still getting bit." "This is a brand new Bed." I'm sure by now you can see where this post might be going. All these phrases contain faulty logic about these pests. Look at the adjacent image.--> of a home recently treated in the Chandler Gilbert area. This is a white chair in an office 15 ft from the room where the bed bugs were last sited. Fifteen Feet Away! You can see the dead bed bugs laying on this chair. Bed Bugs were also found dead near family room couch 35' ft away and in the window sill of the master bedroom about 40' ft away. These dead bugs were found after the heat treatment was completed. For this home bed bugs were "only seen in one room". Bed Bugs were hidden from human view until the treatment was completed. This is why we only Give our 1yr warranty when the entire structure is treated. "My roommate is the only one bit". First of all this does not mean she was the only one bit (note previous post about bed bug bites) because some people have absolutely zero reaction to the bites so they could be getting bit and never have any marks or signs of bites. This phrase also does not make this roommate the guilty party for bringing the bed bugs home nor does it mean they are contained in one room. If you have been getting bit for more than a few days or weeks most likely there are bed bugs in other places of the house by now and it only takes a few to inbreed and rebuild a nest in the home. Next: New furniture. New Furniture is never a deterrent to bed bug infestation nor does it mean that it was not existent upon purchase.....though we are always grateful to hear of your new purchases :-)! Throwing away furniture has 2 problems one is that bugs are in other places than just the items you threw away and secondly the furniture containing the infestations are transferred providing free rides for bed bugs seeking new hosts. Many Goodwill Stores have been shut down due to these types of donations. In Conclusion if you have been bit or have seen bed bugs chances are they are not in one place. Secondly avoid donating furniture or leaving furniture to others (find a way to burn it) spare others the grief. Be careful picking up furniture at donation centers like Goodwills or Salvation Army sites. Heat Treatments on the entire structure is the only guaranteed bed bug eradication method.
