Bed Bug Treatment in Bell County, TX

Bed bug bites can be very irritating and itchy. An infestation can even take an emotional toll, as anxiety about getting bitten can lead to sleeplessness. If you're in need of professional bed bug control in Bell County, ABC Home & Commercial Services uses proven methods that get results. With ABC's help, feel confident and sleep well again with these pests gone.

Our heat remediation treatment for bed bug infestations follows simple but proven scientific principles to eliminate these pests. We raise 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.

We also apply natural and insecticidal dusts where bed bugs are likely to congregate — areas like baseboards and small, out-of-the-way crevices. We follow a specific methodology in our treatment so that bed bugs cannot hide and cannot escape.

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. Their bites are painful and irritating to human skin.

A few bed bugs can easily turn into a multitude of bed bugs quickly. They lay four to five eggs per day, and the young are so small that they’re even more 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 difficult to find, bed bugs leave clues to their presence in addition to bite symptoms –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 clues 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. They’re simply 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. Some people also experience 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

What is tent fumigation service, and when is it needed for bed bug treatment?

Tent fumigation, or “tenting”, is a highly effective solution for eliminating serious infestations. Preparation for fumigation can be extensive, requires thoughtful coordination, and follows strict safety procedures. Tenting a home for bed bugs should always be done by a professional with proper certifications and licensing in order to be performed safely and effectively.

What rules does ABC follow with regards to safety when using fumigant gas for bed bug treatment?

Safety is our number one priority when treating your home. We adhere to strict guidelines set forth by the fumigant manufacturer as well as state and federal regulatory agencies. During all structural fumigations, ABC regularly monitors the fumigant levels within the structure for efficacy, as well as the air outside the structure. We use specially designed equipment capable of detecting fumigant levels as low as 1 part per million (ppm). We employ aeration times far exceeding what is required by law and confirm 0 ppm clearance levels multiple times before allowing you and your family to return to your home. Additionally, we follow all manufacturer recommendations, including not fumigating homes with attics enclosed in polyurethane spray foam insulation (PSFI).

We care about our customers, and want them to be informed about products and safe handling. For more information about gas treatment and safety measures, visit:
