There are two primary methods for treating bedbugs. There are chemical applications that can be applied to headboards and wall joints, and other termite occupation sites. This method is less preferred because it uses chemicals and can be less effective at removing the whole population.
Our preferred method is called Heat Remediation. Heat remediation is a process of introducing high heat to rooms affected by bed bugs. This treatment will kill bed bugs in all stages of development, and once completed will leave no lasting residues that could harm your family. Heat Remediation also severely limits the time you would need to stay out of your home, so you can get back to your life sooner.
Heat Remediation is non-toxic to humans and does not leave any chemical residues in the home. It also allows homeowners to return sooner to their property. Other methods can be effective, but because heat remediation kills all bedbugs at all stages of life without the use of chemicals it is highly preferred.
Heat remediation has no lasting effects that can harm pets or children.
Being conscious of the clothing, luggage, and furniture that comes into your home is very important. Bed bugs like to piggyback on any types of fabric to enter your home. If you go on vacation and notice any bed bug activity, remove your clothing and luggage and wash them as soon as possible.
If you buy used furniture inspect it carefully for bed bugs, larvae, or bed bug droppings. Bed bugs are opportunistic, so if you don’t give them the opportunity to get into your home they won’t get a toehold. If you think you have a potential bedbug issue, call us as soon as possible so we can deal with it.
Dark fecal spots, cast skins and crushed bed bugs are all signs of possible infestation. Bed bugs are attracted to the body temperature and scent of a sleeping person and feed on their blood at night. Bites may come from a variety of other insects, but when combined with the other signs of bed bugs, they can be a good indicator living bed bugs are present. Bites may be accompanied by redness and itching.
