The ability to detect bed bugs during the early stages of an infestation when only a few bugs are present is absolutely critical, however until recently early detection tools and methods have been severely limited.
When I'm in the aisles advising Home Depot customers about bed bugs, I suggest they view getting rid of them as a three step concept: detection, treatment and prevention. The Home Depot sells several products that are intended to be used at each step of the process, to help make sure they're well on their way to being bed bug free.
Bed bugs can hide just about anywhere a credit card can fit, and can be found in any small crack or space in your home or among your belongings. In order to kill bed bugs efficiently, we recommend a bed bug steamer. Simply steam along the edges of the room and along the seams of your mattresses, chairs, and sofas.
Bed Bug Monitors & Traps It can be very difficult to find bed bugs in your home, which is why our bed bug traps and monitors are so popular. Bed bug monitors and traps can be used to detect initial infestations and to track the progress of treatment, allowing you to know exactly when the bed bugs are gone.
