EcoPest Bed Bug Removal

Getting rid of bed bugs and bed bug removal is perhaps one of the greatest challenges facing homeowners, rental properties, hotels, & the pest control industry today. Chemical resistance is on the rise in bed bug populations. The cost of treating bed bugs professionally is often higher than most people expect when they call, largely due to them not knowing that bed bug jobs are among the most labor intensive jobs that we do in the pest control industry. Also due to rapid reproduction and relative ease of reintroduction along with high instances of resistance, there is not a company that will or can guarantee total elimination.

One thing to keep in mind before we dive into the process for bed bugs treatment, bed bugs are highly adaptive. They quickly become immune to products that have been used on them, especially if used incorrectly. That being said bed bugs, for the most part, are now immune to most of the products sold over the counter to treat them. Best case scenario treating bed bugs yourself will result in scattering the bed bugs throughout a residence making a relatively small and treatable situation into a much larger and complex job.

Before we begin our bed bug inspection or treatment it is imperative that proper protective equipment is utilized. The equipment we use varies based on the product we are using to treat your bed bug infestation. The minimums are usually a Tyvek suit and gloves. Certain products may require a respirator due to the potential for drift.

Chemical Treatment Process

Ecopest uses a proprietary system to control bed bugs, including birth control for bed bugs. This helps us to drastically reduce the population within a matter of weeks. The chemical process for bed bugs treatment is very similar to the inspection. We apply a bed bug insecticide that is labeled for use on a mattress to the folds of the mattress. It is important for health and safety reasons not to apply that pesticide to the body of the mattress where you will be lying on or having bodily contact, even with a sheet between. We treat only the folds of the top mattress. (It is also highly recommended that you buy and put on a bed bug mattress cover for both mattress and box spring or base set.)

Other Areas We Focus On During Bed Bugs Treatment

We treat the box springs — every fold, seam, and wood junction. We treat the frames of the bed being careful to treat all cracks and crevices. We treat any furniture that is in the room with the same level of detail as the inspection. We treat dressers, nightstands, end tables, etc. We treat the baseboards and the carpet tack. We treat chair rails or crown molding. We also go as far as to remove electrical covers and dust wall voids with an insecticide dust labeled for use on bedbugs. Bed bugs have been known to use the electrical wiring to move between rooms.

We realize that the cost of replacing furniture and the risk of losing family heirlooms rich with history is often the most expensive part of any bed bug job. Often times we have been able to keep clients from having to get rid of furniture while still getting control of these troublesome bed bugs.

Using Heat As A Bed Bugs Treatment Method

Extreme heat has also been proven to be very effective at treating and exterminating bed bugs. When it comes to bedding materials or clothing that has been exposed to bed bugs, the dryer is your friend. Bed bugs do not live long at sustained high temperatures. This being said heat treating for bed bugs in a structure is an option although very, very expensive. Heat treatment cost upwards of $1,500 per room or more depending on the company.

In extreme cases, removal of furniture may be the best option for getting rapid control of a bed bug infestation. Be sure to have the room or residence treated before or at the time you bring in new furniture. A pair of $50.00 bed bug mattress covers is a lot cheaper than an $800+ mattress. Always have a bed bug mattress cover. Bed bugs hatch on 14-day cycles like fleas so the process of treatment needs to be repeated at least two more times on that cycle, to ensure extermination.
