Would we REALLY recommend you “Do-It-Yourself”?
If you’ve read any of our previous bedbug blogs, or our bedbug information pages, or have spoken to one of our technicians, secretaries, or ANY professional bedbug exterminator, we’re sure you know that you need a professional exterminator if you truly want to be rid of bedbugs. You can’t get rid of them on your own.
Or so you’ve heard…
Don’t get me wrong. Trying to tackle bedbugs on your own using over-the-counter products, to put it bluntly, IS INSANE. We don’t recommend a professional exterminator simply to stay in business. We recommend that because it’s typically the only method that works. Most over-the-counter products are extremely diluted. Ironically, they are usually less safe than professional products. They not only fail to eliminate the bedbug problem, they typically make it worse. Treating with those products can actually make the bedbugs stronger, more resistant to pesticides (think of it like a flu shot: injecting someone with a dead flu virus helps their immune system fight the live virus later on).
Over-the-counter products are an exterminator’s worst nightmare. They make our job MUCH more difficult. The last thing we want to hear when arriving on a bedbug job is that the “victim” previously tried to kill the bedbugs themselves.
It should come as a surprise when we actually recommend a do-it-yourself bedbug kit.
What are we thinking?? Well, first of all, we’re not going to recommend something that will not work and will reflect negatively on us. Secondly, we’re not going to recommend something that would put us out of business. But, we also realize that we can’t be everywhere. If you are some of the fortunate few that live in one of our service areas, then consider yourself one of the lucky ones. For the rest of you (or for those that just can’t afford to hire a professional), we finally have a solution for you.
We have never before seen a do-it-yourself bedbug kit that we could, in good faith, recommend to you. We are confident that they simply do not exist. The problem is, the professional exterminators aren’t likely to give away the products or techniques that work for them. That means that the people offering the bedbug kits are just regular people looking to earn a few extra bucks.
We have successfully treated 1000’s of homes for bedbugs.
We have put together the first kit that we can actually recommend. Our bedbug kits not only have the same professional grade products that our technicians use to successfully eliminate bedbugs, but they also include THE key component you won’t get with any other kit. Professional support from a licensed, trained and EXPERIENCED technician.
We realized that any DIY bedbug kit would be incomplete without the proper support system in place. As part of the kit, we are giving access to the same training videos our technicians use, as well as phone, email and video chat support from our licensed technicians. They will make sure your Do-It-Yourself experience doesn’t become just another horror story. All of our technicians have successfully treated hundreds of homes. They know what they are doing. They will be your lifeline when you do the previously unthinkable: eliminate bedbugs yourself.
Our kits are inexpensive (less than the cost of 2 treatments) and effective. Check them out here. They provide you with enough product for 8-27 treatments (don’t worry, you’ll typically only need 2-3).

Don’t let bedbugs get the best of you. If you can hire a professional, we still recommend that. It’s still the best option. But if that just doesn’t work for you, this kit will.
