Do-It-Yourself Preparation of your house/apt required for a successful bed bug treatment (#bedbugcontrol) is extensive and time-consuming and for most people, a very stressful undertaking.

If budget is an issue and/or time is of the essence, consider hiring a dog team.  The bed bug scent detection dog can detect bed bugs in minute amounts, finding them in the earliest stages of infestation and pinpointing the exact location of them.  They also have the unique ability to detect bed bugs in areas that are inaccessible to inspectors.
