Where Do Bed Bugs Hide?
Bed bugs are able to crawl into very small crevices in and around human environments. They do not have nests like ants or bees, but do tend to congregate in habitual hiding places, such as within mattresses and linens, furniture crevices, around wood trim and outlets, floors, electrical boxes and outlets, and behind wallpaper and picture frames.
How Do I Get Rid of Bed Bugs?
What you must understand first is that bed bugs are extremely difficult to eliminate. Do-it-yourself measures will not work at all. If necessary, to detect the bed bugs, we will provide K-9 sniffing dogs. Then, we use vapor steam equipment and power vacuums to remove the infestation. We also offer thermal heat remediation. Giving us a call for an inspection is your best first step to getting rid of bed bugs.
Thermal Heat Remediation
We offer to eliminate bed bug infestation through the use of heat, rather than chemicals and toxins. Our heater supplies dry, clean, breathable heat into the sealed room to be treated. Once the room reaches the thermal kill zone temperature for bed bugs (120 degrees Fahrenheit), all stages of bed bug life will be killed within one hour of heat soak.
Temperatures are maintained through the use of a provided programmable thermostat and two sensors, placed in opposite ends of the room, controlling the output of the heater. The use of heat eliminates down time compared to the use of chemicals, which takes time to dissipate. Thermal heat remediation requires one treatment in most cases.
Thermal heat remediation is ideal for pest control in hotels, hospitals, apartments, dorm rooms, nursing homes, or anywhere else you need to eliminate bed bugs quickly, safely and quietly. Since our heater is electrically powered, it is extremely quiet, there are NO risks of carbon monoxide, unpleasant fumes and odors, fire, explosion and water vapor that cause mold that are associated with gas, kerosene and propane heaters, making this the ideal choice for residential and commercial properties.
