Bed bugs are a terrible foe. They hide out in the most undiscovered nooks and crannies of your bedroom, from your mattress and box spring to even the cracks under the headboard. Waiting all the while to feast upon their prey – you.
Bed bugs are nocturnal critters that come out usually after you’ve been asleep 2 or 3 hours and are already in REM sleep mode. That is when you’re most delicious, apparently.
No One Seems to Be Able to Get Rid of Bed Bugs
They’ve been around for thousands of years. While they appeared to face modern day extinction, the government’s outlawing of the most effective pesticides against bedbugs has ensured their reappearance. Don’t get too mad at the GOV for that one though, because pesticides are anything but safe for humans usually.
What you can be mad at the government for is the fact that they do over regulate natural pesticides to an extent that no newcomers can realistically enter the game, which explains why there’s really only a small handful natural bed bug killer products and product makers out there, and they’re all 100 years old.
The best bed bug killer is not your local exterminator
Reading these negative reviews about Orkin and bed bugs, it’s quite disturbing to realize that on top of the problem of bed bug s themselves, people get to add spending thousands of dollars on exterminator treatments and replacement furniture to their many sleepless nights getting bit and the blood sucked from their veins.
Many people’s most common complaints about the Orkin man is that in recent years, the operators and technicians have become incredibly unreliable. Orkin also does not work on Saturdays. Their office staff have been called nice but “not well”. Through hidden cameras customers have seen them cutting corners and doing what appeared to be a half assed job. Then, Orkin charges a monthly fee for its customers. You could be spending a cool $700 a year to get not a whole lot of anything by way of bug removal.
The best bed bug spray is no spray at all
Most people assume you either get an exterminator or you buy some type of bedbug spray. This is because psychologically we have been taught over the years you must shoot something for it to die. However truly effective bed bug annihilation is a fine and lost art only for the noble minded and resilient.
It turns out that bed bugs are best fought on their own sweet time. So you must lay a trap of defensive powder that is always there for them to either walk through or decide at some point that it’s simply not worth trudging over and being killed by. One such product is called Defensive End! and it really does get rid of bed bugs. That is because it’s safe, all-natural, and stays good as long as it’s kept dry.
