Do you suspect or know you have a bed bug problem in your Tampa, Florida home? A bed bug infestation can be stressful, embarrassing, and even traumatic. Sometimes, you can’t even see them, but you know they’re there, and the population is growing. Female bed bugs can lay up to five eggs in a single day, and the eggs can hatch in less than one week. With a life span of six months, a small bed bug problem can get out of hand fast.
There are a lot of advertised methods for bed bug removal. How do you know which one is the most effective?
Pesticides are the most common way to treat bed bug infestations, however, the chemicals can do more harm than good. Bed bugs can quickly develop an immunity to traditional pesticides, requiring multiple chemical applications, and the eggs are always left unaffected by a chemical treatment. Then there are the adverse effects chemicals can have on families and pets.

No. Bed bugs have not been found to transmit diseases to humans.
