Sometimes furniture and mattresses can be treated. Most mattresses can be saved if they are treated and properly fitted with bedbug safe covers. But when the bed bug infestation is severe getting rid of mattresses and infested furniture can be the best option. Bed bugs don't remain on beds during the day. They hide on cracks and crevices around the room so be sure whoever treats for you, does a thorough job finding all of the hiding spots. This can take a long time and can be expensive. Call around and ask a lot of questions to find an affordable knowledgeable company. Many companies offer steam treatments. Not only are they effective but they eliminate concerns about pesticides.
Here's an article with pictures of what to look for and tips on preventing spreading and keeping the bugs from reaching the bed at night.

Warm Fall weather brings Fleas to South Jersey in droves.

 Here in South Jersey weather conditions have been just right for fleas this season. Many of our customers have reported a worse than usual season.Getting rid of fleas for good can be a complicated process. Because their life cycle involves constant laying and hatching of eggs there are almost always fleas and eggs present at the same time. Many off the products available over the counter do not address the eggs. There are professional grade products that will not only kill the fleas but will also prevent fertile females from laying new eggs that may hatch after the pesticides have faded. An infestation that has gone on for a month or more may need to be handled by someone who understands the flea life cycle and can use a multi pronged approach to rid your home of the problem for good.
If you have cats or dogs you'll have to time the treatment of your home with the treatment of your pets.Some vets are beginning to suggest that fleas may have developed a resistance to certain products that are applied to the base of a pets neck. Read the ingredients if you use these products and go for one that is less common. This will reduce the odds of resistance.
