The recommended Bed Bug Inspection tools any PCO should use. By Karl the BugMan Columbus Ohio Bed Bug Exterminator.
The most important step in getting rid of bed beg is to inspect properly to determine how widespread the infestation is and the best way to evict the bed bugs. Bed bugs can hide in any space about as thin as paper and nymphs are even smaller so leave no stone unturned even if it seems to small to you. When conducting an inspection, move slowly and make every attempt to avoid disturbing bed bugs that are hiding so they don’t move to other parts of the house or business. In a low infestation, the bed bugs will be concentrated close to bedrooms. Prioritize the risk of infestation from high to low to concentrate inspection and treatment time to the most infested areas.
Flashlight-As with any inspection in the pest control business, the flashlight is the most important tool to look in and around all dark corners of any room.
Flushing device-Pyrethrin or air to help flush out bed bugs in cracks and crevices.
Mirror-For those pieces of furniture that can’t be turned upside down or apart, it’s good to have a mirror so you can look under and around furniture for bed bug hiding places.
Monitors-placing glue boards in and around the room that can be checked for bed bug activity.
Ladder-In some rooms you many need a ladder to access the dropped ceiling or vents.
Vacuum-If you do find bed bugs, vacuuming them up immediately would go a long way in keeping them from reproducing and it of course makes it easy to dispose of the vacuumed bed bugs properly.
Time-The most important tool of all is time. This process cannot be hurried and your customers will thank you in the end.
