What’s the problem with bed bugs?
Bed bugs sound like a dystopian nightmare; they are tiny, hard-shelled pests that feed on blood. The female can lay more than 200 eggs – and those eggs will hatch within two weeks. Once bed bugs move in, they get out of control – fast.
You don’t want to share a room with these tiny bloodsuckers. Health risks include allergic reactions to the bites, and those reactions can lead (in rare cases) to anaphylaxis. Even if you are not allergic, waking up with a rash of tiny red marks is just plain annoying in the least. It can also lead to skin infections and mental health breakdowns. Reports of anxiety and insomnia are not uncommon among those living with bed bugs.

Yes. Out of the top 10 cities struggling with bed bugs in Canada, Ottawa ranks fifth. These tiny terrors don’t discriminate. In Ottawa, bed bugs have been found in residential homes, commercial businesses, hotel rooms, and even patriotically in two government buildings.

Why do I need professional bed bugs extermination in Ottawa?
You can kill bed bugs on your own, but they will keep coming back. Bed bugs have a very tough outer shell that makes it difficult to crush them, and for many off-the-shelf sprays to penetrate. If you find bed bugs in your home, you cannot find an EPA approved spray for residential use. The sprays from the store that promise to be effective on bed bugs cause skin, eye, and nerve damage.
Additionally, you may think you got all the bugs on your own by using a spray, ventilating the area, and leaving the site for a couple days. Chances are, you have transferred those bugs to other areas because they (and their eggs) are also in your clothes and personal belongings. Without professional bed bugs extermination in Ottawa, you will face those bugs again, and again and again.
