Bed bugs, cockroaches, termits? Do it yourself

I just got a call from a woman in Grants who has bed bugs and she called an exterminator who said the price was $600 to get rid of them. This is beyond ridiculous. If you have bed bugs, you can control them yourself and it will probably cost only a few dollars. I won’t post the method here, but if you have bed bugs, you can email me and I will send you the information. I sent the information to the woman in Grants. You don’t need to spend a lot of money to have someone come by your home every month and spray pesticides for cockroaches. You can control them yourself. Pesticides are not only potentially hazardous, they are expensive and with this coronavirus nightmare going on, there is no reason to spend a lot of money unnecessarily to control pests. I treated a home I bought that had termites and it cost about $20. This isn’t a good idea if you plan on selling your house but if you plan on staying there, it may work. No guarantee it will work in every case, but it worked in my home. I have information on how to do your own termite control if you want to try it. My email address is

About askthebugman

I have been in the pest management industry for over 40 years. In that time I have used almost every pesticide available to control so-called “pests”. With this experience, I have learned over the years that the pesticides we use are far more dangerous than the pests we are trying to control. As a result, it has become a passion for me to improve the quality of life for humans and the planet, by assisting people to not only become more educated and aware of their environment – but also by learning to manage their home and business with a sustainable and healthier approach to tending to unwanted infestations of bugs.
