More Money Sucked Up By Bedbugs

I explained just a few ways that bedbugs can hurt your bank account in my last post, but I didn’t even get through half of them. A bedbug infestation can be one of the most costly things to fix in your house. I’m talking thousands…maybe more.

Most people try to deal with bedbugs themselves before they finally break down and call the professionals. But, this can often turn out to be an even more expensive choice to make. People spend tons of money trying different treatments that they’ve either heard of from another source or found over-the-counter. However, many times people end up wasting money on a lot of home remedies that never work…leaving them to then fork over more money to call in the exterminators.

Bedbugs force people to throw away many expensive household furnishings such as your mattress. You don’t just lose money paying for treatments to get rid of the pests. You also lose money due to all the things you might end up having to throw out. You might end up having to purchase all new furniture for your home in the end.

Here are two other good ones: You might end up being forced to pay for a trained dog to sniff out your bedbugs, which can cost from $300-$600 depending on the size of your home. If you live in a city with major bedbug problems, you might end up paying a fine if you don’t deal with the problem in a fast enough or thorough enough manner.

Can you think of any other ways bedbugs might cost you money?
