CAN I GET RID OF BEDBUGS USING A BUG BOMB?
Using “bug bombs” such as those purchased at the grocery store, will only make the problem worse. Many attempts at self-treating for bedbugs can absolutely make the infestation worse, and will often spread the problem to adjoining apartments or spaces. Consulting a professional such as Bircher Exterminating Services ensures you are dealing with the problem bedbugs and not creating a more serious and widespread situation.

WHAT ABOUT SELF-TREATING FOR BEDBUGS USING DIACEMETIOUS EARTH?
Using diacemetious earth can be a tricky solution. Many people using it do so incorrectly, causing the bedbugs to find alternate ways of getting into your space (such as climbing walls) and therefore spreading. Further, even “food-grade” diacemetious earth can often pose health risks when used in an inappropriate manner, and may not actually treat the bedbugs as intended. Worst still, people who mistakenly use diacemetious earth meant as pool chemical can end up spreading toxic material in their homes and offices, and may end up in the hospital with serious poisoning and respiratory illness. We highly recommend you consult a professional before attempting ANY self-treatment of a bedbug problem.

HOW DO YOU REMOVE A BEE’S NEST?
Carefully! While a bee’s nest should only be removed if it poses a threat to humans or structures, we highly recommend you hire a licensed pest control operator, such as Bircher, to prevent any kind of dangerous situation resulting in a swarm of angry bees, or a half-removed nest. Bircher takes extensive care to exterminate and remove nests in a safe and professional manner.

CAN NEW FURNITURE INFEST MY HOME WITH TERMITES?
Yes. Unfortunately, just as used furniture will often be responsible for bedbug infestations, NEW furniture can sometimes be found to spread termites as well. If you detect termites in your home, office or warehouse for any reason, or bedbugs, for that matter, it is absolutely imperative to have early detection. Bircher provides thorough inspections that will safeguard your environment and investments.
