Are Bed Bugs Making It Hard To Sleep?

You might think bed bugs are simply part of a nursery rhyme or a pest that only shows up in the dirtiest houses, but the truth is, bed bugs are a growing problem in homes all across the US. If you’ve been waking up with itchy, red bites or have seen small, dark bugs in your house, you may have a bed bug infestation. These pests are difficult to eliminate on your own and they reproduce rapidly, so quick detection and action are important in eliminating them as easily as possible. Smith's Pest Management offers several bed bug treatment options to eliminate your infestation.

 

Bed Bug Services From Smith's Pest Management

Determining if you have a bed bug infestation is the first step in the bed bug control process. Bed bugs are sometimes confused with other pests, so positive identification is important before proceeding with treatment.

If we do verify that bed bugs are present, this inspection allows us to determine how big and widespread the infestation has become. This information is important when deciding which treatment option makes the most sense for your situation.

Bed Bug Treatment Options

We offer three types of bed bug treatment methods. The type we recommend will depend on several factors, including how big the infestation is, how widespread it has become, and if you want a traditional or eco-friendly treatment.

Heat Treatment

Our heat treatments are perfect for large infestations that have spread throughout your house. These treatments can take anywhere from several hours to most of the day to complete, but because they fully eradicate the entire infestation in just one visit, they do not require follow-up appointments.

Heat treatments work by heating your entire home to a temperature that bed bugs can’t withstand. Since heat can penetrate walls, this method is effective at eliminating bed bugs in hard to reach places, as well as bed bugs in all stages of development.

Steam Treatment

Our steam treatment works in a similar fashion to our heat treatments, but on a smaller scale. These treatments are the perfect choice for smaller infestations, as well as for customers who want an eco-friendly treatment option.

Steam treatments take less than a day to complete and can be used in conjunction with chemical treatments.

Chemical Treatment

Chemical treatments are a great option for small infestations that are caught early or if your infestation only requires spot treatments. These treatments take several hours to complete and require one to two follow-up visits to ensure that the entire infestation has been eliminated.

Preventative Options

We also have recommendations and sell products such as mattress encasements that will help you prevent a bed bug infestation. We will work with you to safeguard your home against the threat of bed bugs. Whatever you need, we are here to help.
