Our Bed Bug Control Process

  • Inspection
    Your bed bug treatment process begins with a free bed bug inspection. Before treatment, we want to make sure that the pests you're dealing with are bed bugs and not another similar-looking insect. In addition, we also want to determine how widespread the infestation has become to help us provide you with the best possible treatment.
  • Preparation

    Once the inspection is complete, we'll provide you with tasks you'll need to complete before treatment, including:

    • Vacuum heavily before your bed bug treatment.
    • Leave all linens on beds and items in dresser drawers and closets.
    • Remove all trash from trash cans and declutter common areas.
    • Prepare to leave your home for a minimum of six hours.
    • A full preparation guide will be given prior to treatment.
  • Treatment
    During the treatment process, we'll heat your entire house to a temperature that eliminates bed bugs at all stages of development and in all areas of your home. This bed bug control treatment comes with a 30-day warranty.

How to Spot a Bed Bug Infestation

Identifying a bed bug infestation early can significantly mitigate the extensive damage and discomfort these pests can cause. Bed bugs are notorious for their stealthy nature, often remaining unnoticed until their population becomes widespread within a home. Acting swiftly upon the first signs of an infestation is crucial in preventing them from becoming an even more challenging problem to eradicate. 

Here are 5 warning signs of a bed bug infestation to look out for:

  1. Unexplained bites: Often the first sign, these appear as small, red, itchy spots on your skin, usually on areas exposed while sleeping.
  2. Blood stains: Tiny blood spots on your sheets or pillowcases, which occur when bed bugs are inadvertently crushed, are a classic indication of their presence.
  3. Dark or rusty spots: Check your mattresses, bedding, and nearby furniture for small, dark spots of bed bug excrement.
  4. Eggs and shells: Tiny, pale yellow skins that nymphs shed as they grow larger might be visible upon close inspection.
  5. Live bed bugs: Although they are nocturnal and elusive, you might spot live bed bugs if the infestation is significant. They are small, brown, and oval-shaped insects.

How Did I Get Bed Bugs?

The arrival of bed bugs is seldom related to the cleanliness of a home. Bed bugs are not attracted to dirt or decay but are instead opportunistic travelers, often called “hitchhikers,” that hitch rides on luggage, clothing, used furniture, purses, and other personal belongings. If you ever find yourself in a place infested with bed bugs, such as hotels, offices, schools, or public transportation, you can unknowingly bring these pests into your home. This mode of travel allows bed bugs to effortlessly spread and establish new colonies in unsuspecting environments.
