Get rid of Bed Bugs from your home.

At the beginning of an infestation, bed bugs are likely to be found only in the tufts, seams, and folds of mattresses and bed covers. In areas of heavy infestation, bed bugs can be found in crevices in the bedsteads and behind peeling wallpaper and light sockets.
