When getting rid of bed bugs in your home with chemical bed bug treatment, you need to prepare the house for the bed bug exterminator to come. Put clothing inside plastic bags and wash and dry on high heat. The house must be decluttered because every crack and crevice must receive bed bug treatment. Bed bugs are small insects and are able to hitchhike inside luggage and hide in clothes. Bed bug eggs are too small to see and one female can lay many eggs – leading to a bed bug infestation very easily. A second chemical treatment is required for bed bug control because the chemicals won’t kill bed bug eggs.
