Bed Bug Removal
Bed Bug Removal
Bed bug removal starts with identifying the pests’ hiding place. Once you are 100% sure that it is bedbugs, then we can proceed to eliminate them from your house or apartment. The exterminator will use a vacuum cleaner for sucking up any eggs and larvae in your mattress, pillows and furniture as well as bed bugs.
There are multiple ways that you can potentially get rid of bed bugs. If you read through some of the other pages on the site you’ll find details about our heat treatments that are meant to not only remove the presence of existing bugs but the eggs as well. One of the things that we remind people of all the time is that bed bugs are not only present in your mattress and bed sheets. On this page, we want to talk about the process that we go through to evaluate your current situation then recommend and apply a particular type of treatment.
What Does Your Current Situation Look Like?
There are multiple ways to be able to spot bed bugs. There’s a naked eye test that we do with flashlights in the spots where these types of bugs are going to typically develop. There are other types of tests that we can do which are either active or passive. The passive test is usually going to take a bit longer because we’re just going to set up sensors to see if bed bugs are present in particular areas. Once we have a good idea of the level of infestation that you may have we can then recommend a particular type of treatment.
Picking The Right Type of Treatment
As we mentioned, once we know the level of infestation we’re going to usually recommend a particular type of treatment. If we find that the presence of bed bugs is not overly severe then we may recommend a simpler spray type of treatment. When we find that the level of infestation is much more severe then we would probably go for the full heat treatment. In order to kill off as many bed bugs as we possibly can.
Are There Signs That I Could Be Having A Problem?
There are certainly very clear signs that you could be dealing with a bed bug issue. When you can literally see bed bugs you’ve got a major problem and you can’t deny that. Also, if you feel that you’re itchy and you keep waking up with red marks on your skin, that’s also a sign that you don’t want to ignore. When this happens you definitely give us a call straight away. Now, there are instances where the signs are not as clear. Usually, when you think you are fine just making sure you get regular preventive services could be a good idea.
Where Do Bed Bugs Come From?
You are actually the one that can bring bed bugs into your home. Bed bugs feed on human blood, or animal blood at times. What they try to do is find hosts at all times. They end up in or near beds because that’s a place where they can literally feed off you all night long. For the most part though you or your pets bring them into your home after traveling or from school or work.
TREATMENT FOR BED BUGS
Common treatment of Bed Bugs is to use insecticides, although these may not always be effective. Bed bugs can also be treated by heating the infested items in a dryer on high heat for at least 20 minutes or encasing them in airtight plastic bags and placing them into 120 degrees Fahrenheit ovens for three hours.The best course of action is prevention when possible. Bed bugs can be found in homes, hotels, or even hospitals and any environment that allows for the transportation of people from one location to another.Weekly inspections of hotel rooms is recommended by many experts when traveling or if a person has an infestation at home as it is easier to detect them before they reproduce than after. Inspecting for bed bugs should entail looking in all of the nooks and crannies, including headboards, mattresses, dressers, couches and carpets.When traveling, always carry your luggage with you to avoid left-behind items which may become infested. Bed bugs also cannot fly or jump so they can’t go from person to person.It may seem like bed bugs are everywhere, but they do not transmit disease and cannot harm humans unless provoked with an allergic reaction to the saliva of their bites which is rare.
