The Secret To Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs In Denver Homes

Denver, Colorado, is famously known as the “Mile High City” with an elevation of 5,280 feet. Situated only 20 miles away from beautiful foothills, the city invites residents and tourists alike to venture out and explore. If foothills do not challenge you, Denver opens up a gateway to the gorgeous hazy blue peaks of the Rocky Mountains. One Denver resident who is always ready to use an open gateway to your property is the bed bug. Once they make it inside, they can be next to impossible to get out.

Identifying Bed Bugs In Denver

With nymphs being no bigger than a pinhead and adults around ¼ inch long, it is often difficult to spot bed bugs until itchy red bumps appear. Nymphs are nearly colorless, but adults are mahogany to red-brown depending on how recently they've fed. Accompanying their flattened, oval bodies are six legs and two antennae. Because bed bugs are so small and they lay eggs that are tiny and have a shiny-whitish color, these eggs can be hard to spot without a magnifying glass.

When faced with a bed bug infestation, many choose to handle the problem themselves. While there may be multiple reasons for purchasing do-it-yourself remedies, one of the most common reasons is cost. Many believe professional pest removal services are beyond their pocketbook.

What Everybody Ought To Know About DIY Methods And Costs

As is typical with the Internet, consumers can find just about anything that claims to get rid of bed bugs. A simple search can offer up multiple solutions to combat the dreaded bed bug. Listed below are some common do-it-yourself treatments and general costs associated with them.

  • Foggers/Bombs: Treatments are various and can range from $10.00 - $30.00.
  • Pesticides: Multiple varieties of pesticides are on the market ranging from $10.00 - $50.00.
  • Bed Bug Traps/Interceptors: Traps and interceptors range from $15.00 - $50.00.
  • Ultrasonic Repellents: These repellants cost around $25.00.

With do-it-yourself treatments, initial costs do seem to save you money. However, because bed bugs are elusive, finding where they are hiding can be tricky. Since bed bugs can move around freely, multiple purchases can require continuous applications. Even after numerous applications, most remedies never get rid of an entire bed bug infestation. That means they will be back! All the time, aggravation, and cost spent chasing bed bugs down results in a colossal waste of resources.
