What’s on the other side of the wall?
Bedbugs do not directly spread diseases, but if their bites are not properly cleaned and treated, skin can become infected and cause additional problems.
A bedbug engorged with blood can burst, spreading blood. Take appropriate precautions when coming into contact with blood.
Bed bugs have never been shown to pass diseases to humans
Anemia in children and older adults who have been severely bitten
There is currently no evidence to support the effectiveness of insect repellents against bed bugs
**Encasing mattress/boxspring and isolating the bed can be effective while treatment is ongoing
If you are going to try your own pest management – always follow label directions – “The label is the law”
“MORE” is not better!
“Not effective for treatment of bed bugs”
-not very effective for bed bug control
