In your Moline home, you might encounter many annoying or harmful pests. While some pests are mostly just a nuisance and do not pose any significant risk, others can be a big problem as they pose health risks or cause damage to property.

One of the most dreaded pests for many homeowners is bed bugs. These pests are a big problem because they tend to spread quickly from room to room or apartment to apartment. They also have a nasty reputation for feeding on our blood as we sleep.

Bed bugs are a rather small pest, but they can be seen by the naked eye if you know how to look for them. Here is what bed bugs look like:

  • They are generally reddish-brown.

  • They have bodies that are long and shaped like an oval.

  • They have flat bodies, but their bodies will appear round after they’ve eaten.

  • They are around the size of an apple seed.

No one wants to deal with a bloodsucking pest in their bed, especially one that is so hard to get rid of. When many homeowners see signs of bed bugs, they want to get rid of them on their own to save time or money. While it might seem like do-it-yourself bed bug removal is cheaper, this isn’t always the case.

Is It Cheaper To Get Rid Of Bed Bugs On Your Own?

Bed bugs are gross and can pose some health risks to humans, so they are a pest that people want to get rid of right away. But, in their efforts to eliminate bed bugs while saving money, many people try to take on the problem on their own. Many common DIY bed bug methods aren’t as cheap as you might think.

The exact cost of getting rid of bed bugs varies on how bad the infestation is and the size of your home. But, overall the main reason these methods aren’t cost-effective is that they don’t work very well. They don't really get rid of the infestation which means you end up wasting a lot of time and money and have only frustration and a new bed bug outbreak to show for it.

Here are some common do it yourself methods of bed bug removal:

  • Getting rid of infested items

  • Using pesticides

  • Making devices such as kill chambers

  • Bed bug traps

Even cheap methods can cost at least a hundred dollars to buy, and, since they usually aren’t effective, the costs can add up with each attempt. These methods lead to a lot of aggravation and generally just aren’t worth it.
