If you suspect bed bugs, the first thing you should is call a professional. Also, try to catch one and put it in a container or ziplock. They are easy to catch and will not bite. Our trained technicians will examine the bug you caught and confirm whether it is a bedbug or not. Upon confirmation, we will inspect the infested bedroom(s) and other rooms that may have bed bugs. Remember, they can hide anywhere, so inspections may be difficult. We will then discuss control options, and develop a customized plan to rid your home of these blood sucking pests. This is a team effort, and if you don’t follow our instructions completely, it may be impossible to rid your home of bed bugs.
In serious cases, we may recommend a full tent fumigation or a heat treat. A fumigation will kill all bed bugs and their eggs. In the meantime, you can start destroying potential nesting areas by washing all bed sheets, blankets, linens, and clothing in hot water and dry on the highest hot cycle. The heat will kill bed bugs. Also, toys, shoes, electronics, etc, place in a black plastic bag, seal the bag, and place outside in the sun for 1 – 2 days. The heat build up in the sealed plastic bag should also kill the bed bugs.
