Interview with a Pest Management Professional
What was the worst infestation you had dealt with?
Ricardo Patterson: I had the opportunity to perform a Bed Bug service at an elderly gentleman's home. He stated he never felt the bites from the bed bugs. Yet it was plain to see he had bites all over him. The bedroom was terrible. The corners of the bed sheets and the mattress were covered with blood and fecal matter. The bed bugs wee crawling all over the floor. I was terrified I was going to bring them home with me.
I did my best to help him, spending extra time performing my job treating ever corner of the home. Every draw, cabinet, closet, baseboard crack and crevice, etc. I took the bed apart. I know I killed hundreds if not thousands of bed bugs, I just hoped that I eliminated the infestation.
