Bed bugs are one of the most difficult bugs to remove. Their extermination requires treatment by trained and experienced professionals in order to be successful, especially in the case of extensive infestation. While the bed bug often stays out of human sight, their effects can still be seen if they are present. Bed bugs feed on human blood, often while a person is sleeping, and therefore they are typically found living in mattresses and linens. In addition to the nuisance of bed bug bites, you can find evidence of bed bugs in bedding materials due to their tendency to leave traces of fecal matter behind. If you manage a rental property, having bed bugs can become an even bigger issue as the bugs can spread from unit to unit. If bed bugs are found in an apartment complex or multi-family home, treatment must be rendered as soon as possible to avoid contamination of the entire building.
Bed Bug-Related Damage and Health Risks
- Bed bugs burrow into bedding, mattresses, clothes, other furniture, or stuffed animals.
- They are extremely difficult to remove once infestation has taken hold.
- Despite all possible treatment and extermination options, mattresses and other items may need to be replaced if not treated soon enough.
- Bed bugs feed on human blood and leave small, red itchy bite marks.
- If found during inspection, bed bugs can deter buyers or potential tenants or decrease the value of the property.
Our Bed Bug Extermination Treatment
Bed bug treatments can be performed with chemicals or heat. We can provide either, but have found that heat is very effective! We use the Heat Assault system to eliminate 100% of bed bugs from your space within seconds. Bed bugs cannot survive when air temperatures reach above 125°F (52°C). The Heat Assault system produces temperatures of 145°F or higher to ensure that all bed bugs and their eggs are eliminated. These high temperatures can be achieved by using two powerful continuous loop systems that run on either bio-diesel or diesel fuel.
By using the built-in tracking system, our professionals can remotely track the temperatures of different locations in the target area, ensuring that every area is heated enough to destroy bed bugs. Plus, because this treatment method is toxic-free, it is safe for both people and pets.
Along with our bed bug treatment methods, customer cooperation is also vital. We provide customers with a checklist to complete prior to treatments to ensure that we can do our best work.
