As a first-time home buyer, I did not know what I was getting myself into. I knew that I wanted a house with a lot of character, something with crown molding and antique bathtubs. When I found my dream home, I did not bother with anything more than the standard cursory inspections. No one told me about the importance of bed bug detection.
If I had known then what I knew now, I could have probably saved my family and myself a lot of trouble and a lot of money. The first time we noticed the bed bug problem, it had already gotten out of hand and not knowing the first thing about bed bugs, I did not even realize what they were until I called a company in New York called Viking Pest Control, and they without hesitation recognized the problem as being bed bugs.
Bed bugs can live in furniture, and as you might have guessed, beds. They can actually be difficult to detect because they are practically experts in hiding. Bed bugs are nasty business, but if you detect bed bugs early, you can prevent the problem from getting worse as it did in my house. Before I moved all my furniture inside, there were only a few antique pieces left in the house and those were the bed bug hotels. Left undetected at the time, the bed bugs thrived as we moved in all our belongings. Before long, the bed bugs had moved from one old arm chair and sofa into almost every bed in our house.
I was devastated the first time I detected the bed bugs, but after calling Viking Pest Control, I felt like everything was going to be ok. First, their bed bug detection services would help identify all the problem areas, ensuring that the job would get done right the first time. Second, their detection services even involved bringing along a cute little dog who was expert in sniffing out the problem.
