If you have bedbugs and are a renter, you should contact your landlord immediately. A public health officer can offer advice to tenants who are having bedbug problems on how to handle the infestation.

If building management has asked you to prepare your apartment for bedbug treatment and you reside in a multi-unit building, this typically entails emptying storage furniture to make it simpler to inspect, sorting your possessions into bags, washing all of your clothing and bedding, and moving furniture away from the walls.

Normally, the pest control technician will provide you with detailed instructions on how to get ready for an inspection or treatment.

Bedbugs can be managed using a range of techniques by qualified pest control specialists. These include steam and heat treatments, liquid and aerosol pesticide sprays, insecticidal dusts, diatomaceous earth, and compressed carbon dioxide snow.

Whatever course of action is taken, it will only be successful if physical restraint techniques are combined with preventative measures.

Physical control methods

Bedbugs can be physically removed from goods by steam cleaning, vacuuming, heating, freezing, washing, and discarding them. Vacuuming should come after steam cleaning since the steam will flush any bedbugs that weren’t killed out of hiding. It is best to leave heat treatments to the experts.
