How To Prepare for Bed Bug Treatment

Before a pest control specialist or team arrives in your space to treat bed bugs, there are things you can do to help make the process go quicker and smoother. However, keep in mind that the treatment method will depend on the level of infestation that you have, so it’s best to consult your pest control company first.

Preparing for bed bug treatment is a vital step that most individuals can handle, as it involves uncomplicated tasks. For cases of infestations that are deemed safe for you, the client, to do some simple prep work, here are some of the steps that you can take care of:

Remove Clutter

    • Get rid of junk and excess items that you no longer need to clear the area that will be treated and make it easier to move furniture if needed.
    • Place the stuff directly into plastic trash bags.
    • Make sure to carry the trash bags and take them directly to an outside bin.
    • Never move items from one indoor area to another to avoid spreading the bed bugs.

Prep and Move Beds

    • Move the bed away from the wall.
    • Remove items under your bed and discard them as necessary.
    • Strip all bedding and place in a plastic trash bag. Seal the bag tightly and keep it in the room until the pest control specialist arrives.

Store Kitchen Items

    • Remove all items on top of surfaces, such as countertops, refrigerator, stove, microwave, and other appliances.
    • Put food, dishes, and other small kitchen items in closed cupboards or drawers. You can also place them in sealed containers.

Take Your Pets Away From the Treatment Area

    • All pets must be removed from your space before the professional bed bug treatment starts.
    • An exception is fish in big aquariums. You must cover the tank tightly with plastic, feed the fish, and turn off the water pump before leaving.
