Multi-unit housing bed bug extermination

Bed bugs are one of the most difficult pests to control and spread quickly. This makes them especially worrying in multi-unit housing. When trying to exterminate bed bugs from multi-unit housing often any nearby units will need to be inspected in addition to the actual housing unit in question. Additionally, bedbug extermination may require multiple treatments, especially in a large area, to fully eliminate all traces of the insects and it is important to start these treatments quickly.
