So this is what it looks like. First, you need an inspection so we can be absolutely sure you actually have bed bugs. It could be a different pest altogether; in which case you would need a whole different treatment. Treatments should always be pest specific; you can’t just spray and pray. You could also just be insane and crazy and think you have invisible insects crawling all over you that don’t actually exist. This happens way more than you might think and no pesticide will cure this ailment, trust me. So, once we have established that you actually do have bed bugs we can move forward with a treatment.
