Heat remediation treatment for bed bugs follows simple but proven scientific principles to eliminate these pests. We kill bed bugs in every stage of life by raising the temperature around them to 125 degrees. This wipes out the entire population from eggs to adults and is effective in a single treatment.

Bed bugs are tiny insects that feed on blood during the night. At less than a quarter of an inch when fully grown (about the size of an apple seed), their smallness makes it challenging to find them. Bed bugs bite in order to feed, making them both painful and irritating unwanted house guests. Worse, a few bed bugs can turn into a multitude of bed bugs quickly. They lay four to five eggs a day with young 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 who’s home for the weekend can unknowingly transport them.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

Despite their sneaky size, 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 even 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; they’re just very annoying.

According to the CDC, some people 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 to manifest. Commonly, the bites appear in a straight line, very close together, because when disturbed while feeding, the bed bug may wait just a moment to resume 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 bed bug 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:

“I was very impressed with the handyman services provided by ABC Home & Commercial Services. Mark was professional and treated my home like it was his own. He did a phenomenal job fixing the loose siding on the chimney and securing the cedar shutters on the front of our home. While working inside our home, he listened to my concerns and addressed the tasks with efficiency and informed me of the curing time needed for the caulk to properly dry. I would definitely contact ABC again for future needs and request the same technician again.”

“We had a problem with an AC unit not cooling. We couldn’t reach ABC over the weekend (turned out we were calling the wrong number. They have an after hours answering service) so we called a different company. They told us the compressor was tripping the breaker and needed to be replaced. We were quoted $3700 for a new compressor or $7800 for a whole new AC. We decided to hold off and get a second opinion from ABC because we’ve used them for various things for more than 30 years, and we trust them. Their AC tech came out and said he was pretty sure the problem was the breaker, not the AC, so we asked ABC to send out an electrician. The electrician pulled out the breaker and confirmed that was the problem. It took him less than 45 minutes, and that was with me watching and asking questions about it. He probably would have been able to do it faster without an audience. For both techs to come out, the total was about $160. With the other company, we would have paid at least $3700 just to find out it still didn’t fix the problem.”
