Exterminating bed bugs
How do I get rid of bed bugs?
Bed bugs are not a pest you can easily control yourself. Exterminators are needed if you get an infestation and they use a variety of methods to kill bed bugs. The two most popular treatments are using heat or pesticides. However, no method is foolproof and several attempts may be required to completely exterminate all bed bugs.
The amount of treatment varies depending on the size of the infestation. A small infestation can be treated reliably and quickly. If the infestation is in a later stage, the room walls have to be torn down and a major refurbishment done to completely remove the bed bugs. In addition, adjacent rooms are treated as well. The total cost of replacing furniture like the bed, replacing wallpaper and floor in a room can cost up to €20,000.
