Do it yourself?
I won't lie to you. There are a truck load of do it yourself products on the market right now and all of them are marketing them as being able to rid you of your bedbugs. If it were as easy as going on the Internet and buying some product then the problem would be more contained and not such a big deal. The facts are that bed bugs infestations are being reported at alarming rates. The problem is increasing instead of decreasing, and no do it yourself product on the market is going to eliminate a problem as big as this is becoming. Having said that I won't dismiss them all together. I would have to guess that these products can help and be used as tools if they are applied properly and you are so inclined to do so. You can't expect the problem to go away because you sprinkled some dust in a corner because the bottled said BED BUG KILLER on it. Bedbug control is a very involved and detailed in it's application and there is no doubt you will need the assistance of professionals to help in the elimination of these pests. Until then I'm sure things like mattress covers, dusts, and contact killers that are labeled for bedbugs will assist in this process. Be sure to always read the label before applying any kind of chemical and use extreme caution around children, pets, and the elderly. Don't let the all natural label fool you either.
