How to Prevent Bed Bugs
Bed bugs were once thought to be gone forever but have made an incredible reappearance within the last 10 years. The main reason is they are no longer successfully controlled using traditional, synthetic pesticides. In order to successfully deal with these blood suckers, you need an all-natural product that they cannot become resistant to.
There are two ways of looking at Bed Bugs – Prevention and Treatment. Prevention is doing what you can do avoid an infestation and a Treatment method you need control of an infestation. By definition, a confirmed infestation method you have located 2 or more adult bed bugs and/or see evidence of them in 2 or more places. That might not sound like a lot to be considered an infestation but these are expert hiders so seeing two method there are many more. Plus, 2 of these monsters left unchecked can become 4000 in about a month!
Prevention is meaningful so let’s discuss that.

Be sure to choose products with clear instructions that are NOT SYNTHETIC PESTICIDE CHEMICALS. You will be using these products on yourself and in your home and DO NOT want to be exposed to chemical toxins!
Prior to entering a unprotected location such as a hotel room, public transportation, a public seating area (theater), doctor’s office, school or already if visiting relatives.
