Bed Bug Treatment in Austin, TX

While bed bug bites can be very irritating and itchy, an infestation can take a significant emotional toll, as anxiety about getting bitten can lead to sleeplessness. If you are looking for professional bed bug control in Austin, you should know that ABC Home & Commercial Services uses proven methods that get results. With ABC's help, you can feel confident knowing that these pests are gone and that you can sleep easy again.

Our bed bug heat remediation treatment follows simple but proven scientific principles to eliminate bed bugs. We kill them by raising the temperature around them to 125 degrees. This kills bed bugs at every stage of life, from eggs to adults, and is effective in a single treatment.

Appropriately, we will also apply natural and insecticidal dusts where bed bugs are likely to congregate, such as around baseboards and in small, out-of-the-way crevices. We follow a specific methodology in our treatment so that bed bugs cannot hide and they cannot escape.

The ABC Process

1. Contact ABC

When you contact us, we will schedule an inspection to get an understanding of the problem. In some cases, we can give you a quote over the phone.

2. Get An Estimate

If you have an inspection, we will send you a custom treatment plan and estimate afterward. Once we get your approval, we will schedule your treatment.

3. Treatment

We will come to your property and treat for pests in common hiding and nesting areas. Over time, you will start seeing less and less pest activity.

4. Prevention

Customers with our ongoing pest management services will receive periodic retreatments to prevent the return of the most common pests in our area.

We back our bed bug treatment with our written guarantee. The heat treatment leaves no residual effects and homeowners can return to their home same day.

Bed bugs are tiny insects that feed on blood during the night. At less than a quarter of an inch fully grown (about the size of an apple seed), their tiny size makes it challenging to find them, and the fact that they bite in order to feed makes it painful and irritating to have them.

Worse, a few bed bugs can turn into a multitude of bed bugs quickly. They lay four to five eggs a day and the young are so small that they’re difficult to see—about the size of a pinhead. If you have a bed bug problem, the pests are almost certainly from an external source.

Bed bugs do not result from sanitation problems in your home. Instead, they come into your home on luggage, clothing and other belongings from having recently stayed in hotels, apartments and even college dorms—a student visiting home for the weekend can unknowingly transport them.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my house has a bed bug problem?

Despite being tiny and hard to find, bed bugs leave clues to their presence in addition to the bite symptoms we described earlier–especially in mattresses and bed coverings, on bed frames, and behind headboards and baseboards. Bed bugs can crawl up to 100 feet, so you may also find telltale signs on nightstands, in drawers or behind pictures.

Once you begin to search for them, you will generally find dead bed bugs, their exoskeletons (which come off when they shed them) and dark-red spots from blood-filled fecal matter. You may also notice a sweet, musty odor.

Do bed bugs carry diseases and are their bites poisonous?

Bed bugs do not transport disease, and their bites are not poisonous. However, bed bug bites may very well be very, very annoying.

According to the CDC, some people will have no reaction at all to bed bug bites, while others may have a strong allergic reaction. The most common result of bed bug bites are skin irritation, itching and some redness, with some people experiencing swelling around the bites.

Reactions to bed bug bites can be immediate but in some cases it can take up to two weeks for the reaction to manifest. Commonly, the bites appear in a straight line, very close together. That’s because when disturbed while feeding, the bed bug may wait just a moment to resume feeding and will move very little before resuming.

“Jeremy was great today- took care of our ant issues and even set up a follow-up to make sure things got taken care of in the back yard (which my son was supposed to unlock, but being a tween he slept through the appointment.) We've trusted ABC for 20 years, and their services became even more important when our daughter was found to have a fire ant allergy. We've trusted ABC this long because they take care of the issues, and they come back out and re-treat if necessary. Great service, great technicians!”
