Bed Bugs

In recent years, bed bugs have been reported all across the United States and quickly spreading

Some facts about Bed Bugs:-

The adult bed bug is oval and flat. They grow to only about a quarter of an inch long, and come out at night for a blood meal. Bed Bugs act as hitchhikers requiring humans travel from place to place. If you travel often, the chances increase that you could bring some home. Bed bugs require a blood meal to reach each part of their lifecycle and to lay eggs. They usually last less than 10 minutes feeding on their sleeping host.

Chemical treatments usually take a few weeks to achieve complete eradication. An insecticide is applied along with a growth inhibitor (which inhibits reproduction in adults and growth in young). Any bugs directly contacted will die, but others that may live in hard-to-reach places will cross through treated areas and die shortly afterwards. 

Heat treatments can kill all bedbugs within one day, or even half a day. Our technicians bring ambient temperatures in the structure to 120°F-160°F, held for 2-6 hours until every nook and cranny in the affected areas are reached. These temperatures kill bedbugs within minutes, and kills 100% of them because none can withstand the heat.

DIY treatments can raise the risk of reinfestation. Our professional service and advice will save you time, money and restless, itchy nights!
