What to Expect from Our Bed Bug Treatment
Over the last 15 years, bed bugs have made a huge resurgence. Their ability to easily move from one location to another is striking fear as they spread infestations to home, apartment buildings, hotels and other commercial properties. Do-it-yourself treatments have proven to be extremely ineffective and often make the problem worse by spreading the bed bug infestation. Early detection and treatment is the key to solving a bed bug problem and our trained professionals have the knowledge and training to make it happen.
What Needs to be Done for an Effective Bed Bug Treatment
When bed bugs are suspected, we will first conduct a very thorough inspection of the property to determine the extent of the problem. We always suggest that all the surrounding units or rooms in an affected building be inspected as well. Because of the complex nature of this pest, each situation is customized to the needs of the customer with a detailed treatment plan along with follow-up measures and future prevention strategies. After the inspection, we will provide you with a detailed preparation sheet which outlines what needs to be done for a successful treatment.
Our comprehensive control measures typically involve the physical removal of bed bugs with a specialized vacuum, treating with commercial steam machines, and chemical applications. We use a variety of EPA approved chemicals and growth regulators including dusts, aerosols, and liquids which are strategically applied to affect all stages of the insect from eggs to adults.
Follow Up Bed Bug Treatment
After the initial treatment, we will do a follow-up treatment in 1-2 weeks, depending on the severity of the infestation. We will also suggest a customized bed bug defense plan including the use of mattress protectors and monitoring devices.
