Bed Bug Treatment
Don't Let the Bedbugs Bite!
When it comes to pest infestations in a home, many people rank bed bugs as the worst of the worst. Even though they don’t spread diseases, no one wants them in their bedroom and feasting on blood as they sleep.
Just because they don’t spread diseases doesn’t mean bed bugs don’t cause other problems. Bed bugs cover their victims in itchy bites. They also breed rapidly and are difficult to eliminate.

Signs You May Have Bed Bugs
Bites on the skin: An obvious sign of bed bug infestations are bites, usually on the arms and legs, but they can be anywhere. Bed bugs feed on human blood while we sleep and leave behind itchy welts that can last up to two weeks.
Blood spots or stains: Bed bugs leave behind small, bloody spots on sheets or mattresses after feeding. There may also be crushed bodies or excrement. These stains will be reddish-brown and roughly the size of a pencil eraser head.
Fecal spots: Bed bugs excrete waste matter in the form of tiny black dots around their hiding places and nests.
Tiny spots on sheets and mattresses: Bed bugs leave behind tiny black spots that residents may find on sheets, mattresses, and other furniture. These spots are their droppings, which contain digested blood from their hosts.
Foul odor: As an infestation grows and becomes more established, one common sign is a pungent musty odor in the house. This smell is caused by bed bug secretions that linger even after being eliminated.
Shed skins: A bed bug will shed its skins several times throughout its life cycle. Thus, empty shells on nesting areas such as mattress seams and box springs may indicate an ongoing infestation.
Our Bed Bug Treatment Process
A thorough inspection is the first step in helping homeowners eliminate bed bugs and regain peace of mind. The inspection aims to discover all the areas infested by these insects. As their name suggests, bed bugs are commonly found in and around the bed. With our bed bug treatment, we check the mattress, headboard, and bed frame. Then, we move on to baseboards, drywall, and furniture. Finally, clutter is an ideal habitat for bed bugs, so we inspect all the cluttered areas inside the house.
Once we understand where the bed bugs are spending their time in a house and how large the infestation is, we’ll move on to the treatment phase. With our bed bug treatment, we apply a liquid treatment in every affected area of the home. Depending on the findings of our inspection, we can offer a whole-house treatment or treatments done on a room-by-room basis.
Our bed bug treatment service is guaranteed and warrantied. We will return to a home as many times as necessary to eradicate the bed bug infestation. Typically, one to two follow-up treatments are required to eliminate an infestation.
