Residential Pest Control – Bed Bugs

IDENTIFYING BEDBUGS

Visual inspection – Our technicians are trained and experienced in visually inspecting for bedbugs. We are identifying the tell-tale signs of an infestation and distinguishing a bedbug from other bugs, which are often confused with bedbugs.

Dog inspection
– We have access to an excellent bedbug sniffer dog that can identify the presence of bedbugs without needing the visual confirmation that can sometimes be hard to locate. Trained K9s can detect odors entirely unnoticeable to humans.

HOW WE TREAT

Chemical Treatment
– We can provide chemical treatment to your home/apartment for bedbugs. You will need to download a preparation sheet and follow the list of requirements carefully
. The closer you follow the preparation guidelines, the better chance we have of eradicating the bedbugs in as few treatments as possible.
Due to the nature of bedbugs, you will need two chemical treatments. The second one will be booked 14 days after the first. In some cases, more treatments will be needed at 2-week intervals.

Heat Treatment

– Another extremely effective way to treat bedbugs is by using heat. The Heat Assault Unit 500X can maintain an indoor temperature of 150F, which ensures that all bedbugs and their eggs are exterminated. The high efficiency of the unit allows us to treat multiple apartments at the same time.

We highly recommend you use our company to carry out any heat treatments; we have a great success rate with the elimination of bedbugs. We are very knowledgeable in the field and can answer any questions you may have about the process.

The AGES Heat Assault system uses two trailer-mounted diesel-fired furnaces that create a redundant loop. This eliminates the possibility of system shutdowns during heat treatments. A high-efficiency pump circulates non-toxic glycol through hoses and heat exchangers. There is no fire hazard and the glycol is non-toxic. The system also allows us to perform bedbug heat treatments in a significantly shorter time than their competitors. It also eliminates the need to vacate the premises for extended periods.
The heat treatment unit allows us to heat areas up to 5,000 square feet at a time, and the fan system circulates the heat into all furniture and cracks and crevices. When directed towards the walls and the temperature is raised quickly enough, experience has shown that bedbugs will not escape through the walls and will remain in the target area.

Temperature probes are distributed throughout the affected area and monitored remotely. Once the temperature has reached 125F for over 30 minutes, all eggs, larvae, pupae, and adult insects will be killed. The room is kept up to temperature for approximately 3 hours to allow heat to penetrate the furniture and walls.
