The bed bug extermination process is not complicated at all. The expert is going to use an specially designed product that is not harmful for human beings or pets. Still, they will recommend you to stay away from the sprayed bed for a couple of days just to be safe.
We suggest you to contact a few different bug extermination services near you before actually hiring one. That way you can compare prices and choose the best one for your budget.
Make sure to ask all the questions you need to the exterminator. Some people ask for the specific product the expert is using to feel safer.
We do not recommend you to buy the same product neither do the extermination by yourself. Some of these chemical products need to be prepared by an expert and the ingredients for some will require of an special licence.
In case you still want to try a commercial product if your bed bug problem is not that big, you can try this bed bug repellent for a fairly cheap price.
