Bed Bug 4 Step Process
1Deep Vacuum: It may seem like a simple step but it is super important. Every egg, every live bug removed is a problem permanently solved.
2Heat Treatment: Bed bugs are very susceptible to heat. At a temperature of 115 degrees, every bed bug will expire within 1 minute. We use a commercial 220-degree dry steam unit. During the treatment, we focus the heat on the areas most likely to harbor bed bugs. This step kills 100% of the visible bugs and eggs.
3Liquid Chemical Treatment: The benefit of using a local company. By testing, we found the most effective liquid product for our area. This product is so special, we only use it for bed bugs. This is a long-term control product with an active residual of over 2 months.
4Dust Treatment: The final step in our process. University studies show this product lasts the longest. This dust is applied to bed bug harborage areas. This final step gives you the longest control available.
Where do bed bugs come from?
Bed bugs have infested every city in California. But where did they come from?
They do not fly, and they don’t travel much on their own. Their primary means of travel is hitchhiking on infested items. If you stayed at a hotel, you may have picked up bedbugs. The bedbugs will crawl from the room into your luggage. Second-hand furniture is another common infestation source.
Some people will take used furniture home, then clean it and resell it. Many times they had no idea it was infested. Another source could be the shared laundry room at your apartments. Bed bugs could be shook loose from clothing and then crawl into your clean laundry basket.
On a good note, in most cases, bed bugs don’t crawl from unit to unit. In nearly every case, the bugs needed a host to help them get into your home.
