Houston Exterminator: Bed Bug Treatment & Control

Bed bugs are challenging to control because they hide in minor cracks and spaces. Not only do we recommend and perform the most effective treatments, but we also offer a guarantee on our heat remediation service. Call ABC for the best pest control services in Houston for long-term results.

Quick & Reliable Bed Bug Control

ABC utilizes two primary methods for bed bug control. The first is to apply a localized treatment solution to areas where bed bugs often hide, such as headboards, baseboards, wall joints and under carpet edging. Although this option is more cost-effective, applying spot treatments is less effective, since these pests and their eggs are small enough to fit into virtually any cracks or crevices in your home. Bed bugs can hide in many different places in your home and can fit into cracks the width of a credit card. 

Some of the places you can find these pests include:

Heat Remediation

The best way to eliminate bed bugs is through the second method, heat remediation. Heat remediation is a chemical-free alternative which relies on high temperatures to kill bed bugs in all their stages of development in affected areas. Once the treatment is complete, no harmful residue remains in your home. As part of our treatment services, we offer a follow-up bed bug inspection 20 days after your fumigation to ensure that no pests remain on your property. You should only need one heat remediation treatment, and we provide a guarantee that you will not see bed bugs on your property for 90 days. If not, we will return and treat your home until the bed bugs are gone.

Physical signs of a bed bug infestation:

Another sign that you might need a bed bug exterminator is the appearance of itchy, flat red bites on your arms and other areas which might be exposed while you are sleeping. Bed bugs are attracted to the body temperature and scent of a sleeping person and feed on their blood at night. That said, not everyone reacts to bed bug bites, and these bites can often be confused with bites from other insects.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon can you treat my bed bug problem?

Bed bugs are experts at hiding, which is just one of the reasons they are the most difficult pest to treat. So, we understand that once you think you might have bed bugs, you’ll quickly want to enlist the help of a bed bug exterminator to start working on a solution.

Give us a call and once we have identified your problem and you have approved our suggested next steps, we’ll schedule the first service call to begin treatment.

What happens during the inspection?

Our highly-trained, background-checked technicians will arrive at your home to thoroughly inspect your property and determine the best course of action based on the extent of your infestation. After the inspection, we will provide you with a plan of action and associated costs. Once you approve our estimate, we can quickly get started on bed bug treatment.

How can I prevent bed bugs from returning after a treatment?

Even after bed bug treatment, these pests can be reintroduced. The best way to prevent bed bugs from entering your home is to be very cautious about what you are bringing into your home. When you travel, inspect your sleeping accommodations to ensure that the mattress, box spring, headboard and sheets are free of bugs themselves or the small dark or red spots or stains which might indicate a problem.

When you return, unpack your suitcase in your garage and place your clothes directly into your washer and wash them with hot water or run a dry cycle. Inspect your luggage carefully before bringing it inside or put it in a large garbage bag with no-pest strips for a few weeks to eliminate any potential stowaways.

If you buy used furniture or clothing, examine it carefully for bed bugs, droppings or other warning signs before bringing it into your home. Bed bugs are opportunistic, so if you don’t give them the ability to get into your home, they can’t become established. If you see any signs bed bugs have returned, contact us immediately so we can take care of the problem.

Are the products and bed bug treatment methods you use safe for pets and children?

Because of the high temperatures required for this type of bed bug treatment, heat remediation is scheduled during a time when your family and pets are away from your home. Once the treatment is complete, everyone can return to your home with no fear of any lasting impacts or chemical residue.

ABC is committed to the health and safety of our clients as well as doing our part to protect the environment. After decades in the pest control business, we are experts at selecting treatments which are effective, but have a minimal impact on the environment. Our customers can request to see the Material Safety Data Sheet on any products we use for bed bug control.

“So far the service we've been getting is as scheduled. However, this time I was not notified 30 minutes prior to arrival as originally told. The front looks great as usual. The backyard wasn't edged as nice as the front (or at all?), and I really would have appreciated deep edging around our firepit. Addendum 12/8/23: Changed 3 stars to 5 stars for follow-up service! After the above review, I was contacted by ABC in regards to my initial review. Anne was very courteous and eager to send someone out to follow up on my concerns. Arrangements were made that met my schedule, and the crew was very prompt in their arrival on said scheduled date. Our backyard is now 10 times better. Granted, there is still clean up to do on our part, but now it will be so much easier. Certainly worth the subscription price based on customer service alone! Photos depict final work first vs initial service.”
