Beware of Bed bug Heat Treatments  

Unlicensed companies that use industrial heaters turn your home into an oven for several hours. This method is extremely dangerous and ineffective.

We have seen this method cause:

  • Infestations to spread throughout an entire building

  • Extensive damage to furniture

  • Repeated recurrence of an infestation no residual protection.

Beware of Discount Pest Control

These companies use low quality or low concentration surface sprays with only 10 to 14 days of protection.

  • The tip off is when they offer to do a “follow-up spray” two weeks after the first treatment. While this may seem extra thorough, bed bugs may remain hidden without feeding for up to four weeks and new eggs can hatch up to two weeks after that point.

  • By this time the cheap treatment will have long worn off and the new population will be free to re-infest your home. These budget services can breed pesticide resistance in the bed bugs in your home, making future treatments increasingly challenging.

If you suspect you have a bed bug infestation clear and complete information is the first step to getting rid of them. Here are a few facts, myths, and tips that will help you to make a well informed decision about what to do next.

Bed Bugs are parasites:

  • They feed exclusively on mammalian blood.

  • Bed bugs will hide and lay eggs as close as possible to places where we  sleep or sit for more than 45 minutes per day.

  • They seek out hiding spots that are dark, sheltered, undisturbed and as close as possible to the sleeping surface

  • Bed bugs will only infest the closets, dressers or bookshelves, kitchens and bathrooms when an infestation has become severe.

 

 

Bed Bugs CAN be eliminated.

  • Don’t believe the horror stories about unbeatable infestations, skyrocketing pest control fees, throwing out precious furniture, eviction or endless bed bug recurrences.

  • Most of these stories are the result of irresponsible or ineffective pest control companies

  • DO NOT throw out your bed! This will NOT eliminate the infestation.

  • Efficient, safe and complete bed bug remediation requires a varied, thorough, professional treatment. Check out our treatment process above for more details on our method.

 

 

Bed Bugs can infest anyone but not everybody reacts to bites

  • Not everyone reacts to bed bug bites. The bites are allergic reactions to chemicals in bed bug saliva that they inject as they draw a blood meal.

  • Up to 30% of people show no skin reaction to bed bug bites.

  • Any home can become infested with bed bugs

  • Cleanliness, new furniture, new buildings do not protect you from bed bugs

  • If you have less clutter and check your mattress often you will be more likely to spot an infestation in the early stages.

 

 

Bed Bugs are stealthy pests:

  • Can infest for months without being seen

  • Can hide deep inside a crevice in the bed frame or box spring, inside boxes and storage under the bed, or even inside a wall socket or power bar.

  • Emerge when we are asleep

  • Pick up on increased CO2 output, increased body heat, decreased body mobility and ambient darkness which tell them it is safe to come out of hiding and feed.

 

 

Bed Bugs don’t spread disease

  • Unlike mosquitoes and ticks, bed bugs DO NOT transmit communicable diseases.
