Companies engaged in the fight against parasites, are often considered by the owners of premises as an extreme option that should be used only when you cannot eliminate insects from the house on your own.This approach is not completely correct.
In fact the disinfection service is probably the most efficient, reliable, fast and safe way of extermination the parasites out of the house. The following reasons confirm that:
- each disinfection service uses really powerful insecticidal preparations that destroy bedbugs after the first application.
- usually, the good bedbugs extermination service destroys not only adults, but also their eggs (or at least the bigger amount of them) during the first processing. It means that the bedbugs will no reproduce again in the apartment after the processing.
- when disinfection service works indoors, tenants should not stay inside(it is even strictly prohibited), as that excludes the risk of poisoning or allergies to drugs that are used.
But the main thing, that provides service of bedbugs elimination is the economy of efforts, nerves and health of house dwellers. Anyone who tried to poison bedbugs by themselves, knows how time-consuming and annoying it is, especially when insecticide product is very toxic and has a strong repulsive odour. When you call for disinfectors, you pass these duties to them.
Perhaps, the main drawback of the treatment in this service is the high price. As a rule, the insecticide for processing premises on your own is costs 1.5-2 times less than disinsectors service.
And of course, there is always a risk to deal with unscrupulous disinfectors, who will take the money for the work, and then leave you alone with bugs. Perhaps these two negative factors convince many owners of premises to poison bedbugs with the help of their own efforts.

- tenants that havestrongly infected premises, where bedbugs live in places not easy to access;
- when there is a reliable firm for removingbedbugs available.
