Beware-of-Bed-Bugs-Extermination-Scams
Posted by USBedBugs on 4/14/2011 to News
CBS News Correspondent Susan Knoeppen warns consumers to beware when hiring companies that charge high prices and promise to get rid of bed bugs. Getting rid of bed bugs can be big buck so make sure you do your research and hire a reputable company.
 

Just six months ago, Koeppen attended a bed bug summit in Chicago where she asked this important question: "I'm in hotels every week. What are the chances I'm bringing them home?"

Phil Cooper, of Bed Bug Central, a website devoted to bed bug information, replied, "You will be bringing them home."

Sure enough, after a recent ski trip in Utah, bed bugs hitched a ride home in her ski bag.

After suffering bites and hiring a bed bug-sniffing dog to find the little suckers, Koeppen had to pack up her closets, launder and dry-clean everything, so the exterminators could go to work.

Because she's done so many stories about bed bugs, Koeppen knew how to find a reputable company to do the job. But warnings about bed bug scams are popping up across the country, and it's no wonder. Revenues from bed bug extermination are exploding, from $98 million in 2006 to $319 million in 2010.
 
To protect yourself at home, Koeppen recommended these products that are available at USBedBugs.com.
