Should You Throw Out Bed Bug Infested Furniture?
Bed bugs are potentially the worst pest of all time. The human misery they cause is unbelievable. Worse than this, they can be almost impossible to get rid of. In some cases, you may be tempted to resort to extreme measures. This often includes throwing out bed bug infested furniture. Just like when you have fleas in your furniture, it’s easy to understand why people would want to do this. But is it really necessary? Should you throw your furniture out, or is there a better solution?

Bed bug infested furniture must be dealt with properly

The big issue with bed bugs is that they nest in furniture. This mostly includes things like beds and sofas. These items of furniture can be difficult to get into. This is especially true when you consider the size of bed bugs. These pests can squeeze into even the smallest crevice, hole or crack.

This can make getting rid of bed bugs almost impossible. It’s also why people throw out bed bug infested furniture. If you’re thinking of doing this, don’t. Furniture is extremely expensive, and you don’t want to waste money buying a new bed or sofa. Not only that, throwing out furniture will not actually get rid of bed bugs.

Are bed bugs living in places other than your furniture?

As soon as you throw your old furniture out, the bugs will crawl from their other hiding places into the new furniture. So what should you do about bed bug infested furniture? What you should do is call your local London bed bug pest control company and ask about heat treatments.

This is basically a state-of-the-art way for getting rid of bed bugs. It’s also perfect for getting rid of bed bugs that have infested furniture. What this technique does is heat up the affected area. You may not know this, but bed bugs die at a certain temperature. When the air gets hot enough, the bed bugs in your furniture will die. It doesn’t matter how deeply they crawl into the cracks and crevices. All bed bugs, along with their eggs and nymphs, will die, making the benefits of heat treatments over pesticides apparrent.

As you can see, this is a far better option than throwing away bed bug infested furniture. Another big advantage of this treatment is that it does not use chemicals, poisons or pesticides. If you’re on the verge of throwing out your furniture then STOP. Simply give us a call, and the problem will be handled in no time at all.
