Once a bedbug infestation has occurred, it is nearly impossible to eradicate without help. The best way to get rid of these pests for good is by hiring a licensed pest management professional.
Bed Bug Control Service Done by the Pros
Bed bugs can be difficult to remove. Our Technicians are well-equipped to detect, quantify and determine the best and most effective strategy to begin erradication.
There are many ways to prepare for the containment and extermination process. Because bedbugs do not only live in beds, it is extremely important to tidy up and organize in every room so that the exterminator can be most effective.
Ensure the following has been done:
Everything that can be laundered, should be laundered and placed in clean/new plastic bags or plastic containers and sealed prior to the treatment. The list of items that should be included in laundering are listed at the end of this document and include such items as drapes, stuffed animals, bed skirts, etc.
The mechanical removal of bed bugs by vacuuming thoroughly is an important part of preparing for treatment. The use of a crevice attachment is imperative to access bed bugs hiding inside mattress seams, furniture interiors, baseboards and any place that could accommodate them.
Once the initial treatment has been completed we recommend staying out of the treated home or unit for a minimum of four hours. This allows for an appropriate amount of time for the materials used to dry completely. Only after four hours should you, your children, and/or your pets resume residence in the home or apartment.
In order to prevent the need to repeat many of the steps necessary to prepare for your follow-up treatment, we do recommend that you not move your furniture and items back into place if at all possible. In most cases a follow-up treatment has already been scheduled for you and generally will fall within 2-3 weeks from the initial treatment.
This service requires preparation in advance (see checklist pdf). A good preparation facilitates the effectiveness of the treatment. If the tenant is not prepared according to the checklist, the technician will not do the service and you may be subject to a charge of $75 for the service call
