If you rent or allow others to use your home, you have an increased chance of getting bedbugs. Bedbugs are tenacious insects that are very difficult to completely eradicate, even with pest management services. Bedbugs can and will stay inside mattresses and box springs, inside wall voids, appliances, electrical fixtures, cushions, clothing, suitcases, boxes, carpeting, etc. They get into the tiniest cracks and crevices and can sometimes lie dormant for more than a year while waiting for warm-blooded hosts to feed on.
A bedbug infestation in a home requires multiple treatments and sometimes up to several thousand dollars. This cost is not only for the necessary treatment, but also for the loss of rental income as well as the cost of replacing mattresses, box springs, and sometimes even furniture.
Murray Exterminating Co., Inc. offers Bedbug Inspections for our customers' homes. Our trained specialists will perform this inspection at the beginning of the rental season. This inspection will help to spot a small problem before it becomes a full-blown infestation.
We now offer bedbug mattress and box spring encasements and are recommending their use to all of our customers. These covers protect your expensive bedding from bedbug entry or exit. Without these covers, mattresses and box springs must be discarded in the event of a bedbug infestation.
