Bed Bugs Erie

" Bed bugs Erie problems are similar to other Pennsylvania bed bug problems. There are government resources available throughout the state to help tenants understand their legal rights. For home owners, we recommend using an exterminator.  Doing it yourself, is a lower cost alternative, but is difficult."

An increase in bed bug control problems has been reported in Erie County, Pennsylvania. As reported in the Erie Times and News, bed bugs have been reported at Erie Pennsylvania locations such as the Methodist Towers and dormitories at Gannon University.

According to Steve Jacobs, a Pennsylvania State University entomologist, the infestations not only reflects a global trend, it is due to several factors including changes in pesticide use, bed bug resistance to insecticides and the purchase of used furniture which contains bed bugs.

Steps for Eliminating Bed Bugs From Your Home, Office or Apartment

We always recommending hiring a bed bug exterminator that is a member of a national network such as Service Magic (1.877.233.1145).  However, treatment can be expensive.  Because of this, many home owners decide to treat bed bugs themselves.  

If you decide to go the do it yourself route, be sure to buy the combination of bed bug products that are needed to do the job right.  The best and lowest cost approach is to purchase either a   organic or insecticide based bed bug kit.
