Finding the best company out there to eliminate your bed bug problem will take some work on your part. The problem is that there are a million pest control companies out there, but only a handful who really take bed bug control to a new level. Companies like Cooper Pest Control in the Northeast is a perfect example of a company who takes bed bug control to a new level, in fact, they wrote the book on it. The book is appropriately entitled, "The Bed Bug Handbook". Coopers also has a fantastic website dedicated to bed bugs and their control called Bed Bug Central. This website gives advice to home owners and offers products for sale to help the consumer deal with this or protect yourself against this growing problem.
Other companies like A3 Pest control, Stern Environmental, and others seemed to have understood the problem early and geared up to tackle the problem head on.
Aside from research online, you will want to ask for referrals and look on sites like Angie's List and the Better Business Bureau to be sure there are no bad marks against the company.
Be leery of companies who charge a little but promise a lot. Bed bug control is expensive, hard, and disruptive work for both the bed bug control company and the home owner.
So as you can see, shopping for a bed bug control company can be just as tedious and stressful as shopping for a car or home, put as much work into it as you would shopping for big ticket items like that and you should be fine.

Laying in bed and hearing the pitter patter of little feet above? It could be mice in the ceiling who have made their home int he attic. Treating the attic for mice can be tricky. Mostly because of the insulation that may be in between joists that the mice are scurrying under. You should bring out all the guns to rid your attic of the mice. Snap traps, glue boards, and bait should be used. Be prepared to deal with the smell of dead mice if they die in areas that your are unable to retrieve them from. Another important safety topic is the length of time the mice have been up there. If you encounter a high amount of mouse droppings then stop the mouse catching effort and concentrate on safely cleaning this up. This may require a professional as mouse droppings can be very dangerous, especially in high amounts. Happy hunting.
