It’s well known that bedbugs can be notoriously difficult to eliminate once they infest a home unless homeowners do their part by coordinating with their pest control company. These top tips will help you and your pest management company get rid of bed bugs in Fort Myers:
- Do not move any of your personal items and belongings to another home before or during the treatment unless you absolutely know that they are not infested. The danger here is that you might spread bedbugs to another home or to your vehicle or workplace in a box or backpack and then re‐infest your home with bed bugs after it has been treated.
- Wash all your blankets, sheets, pillowcases, and other linens in hot water. Put the items through a dryer course set on the highest setting that won’t damage them. Then, place them in trash bags. Keep them separate from items that may be infested.
- Wash all family clothing in hot water and dry them on the highest setting permitted for the clothing. Clothing that can’t be laundered (coats and jackets, etc.) can be dry‐ Do not place clothing in any rooms/areas until treatment has been completed and the bed bugs have been eliminated.
Place soft furnishings such as pillows, curtains, towels, stuffed animals, etc. in the dryer set on the highest setting that won’t damage the items for at least 30 minutes. Double bag these items immediately after drying.
