Most people are aware that bed bugs are becoming an increasing problem across all of North America, including right here in Barrie. Bed bugs are coming into our homes, hospitals, schools, and other buildings at an alarming rate. Every time another bed bug story appears in the media, it is natural to wonder whether or not you might have bed bugs in your Barrie home. Although there are telltale signs, such as small brownish-red or black dots or smears on bed linens or even seeing bed bugs in the seams of your mattress, these signs are sometimes not very noticeable until there is an infestation. Many people would like to avoid getting to the point where bed bugs are so easily detected.
