Bed Bug Treatment
If you’ve ever heard the old saying, “Good night, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite”, then you may only know them as just words. But, when these little pests actually do attack under the covers, it’s a whole other story.
Bed bugs come by their name honestly, because these insects like the comforts of beds, couches, and other places where people sleep. They are capable of reproducing in huge numbers and can leave you with little or no sleep, not to mention a nasty rash or other health issues. Bed bugs target blood and do most of their dirty work at night.
Getting rid of bed bugs requires an aggressive removal plan. Bed bug treatments by typically involve a combination of different methods, including inspection, preparation, and treatment. A Bug Pro technician will come to your home or business and assess your situation, and then put together a plan of action that is unique to your individual situation.
Inspection & Treatments
We first inspect the premises thoroughly to identify the areas where bed bugs are present. This involves examining mattresses, box springs, bed frames, and other furniture for signs of bed bug activity, such as live bugs, shed skins, fecal spots, and blood stains.
Next, before the actual treatment process for bed bugs begins, it’s important for the homeowner to prepare the premises by removing clutter, washing and drying bedding and clothing at high temperatures, and vacuuming the floors, walls, and furniture to remove any bed bugs and their eggs.
After that, we usually use a variety of treatment methods to eliminate the bed bugs. We may apply insecticides to the infested areas, including cracks and crevices where bed bugs hide. We may also use steam treatments to kill bed bugs and their eggs in hard-to-reach areas.
Often times the choice of treatment methods for your particular bed bug issue will depend on the severity of the infestation, the location of the bed bugs, and your preferences as the homeowner. We will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan that effectively eliminates the bed bugs and prevents their return.
