If you suspect that you have been exposed to bed bugs and may be dealing with an infestation, it is enough to make your skin crawl. These tiny bugs are the best hiders around, and you won’t see them without looking closely. Even then, you may come up empty handed. This is why you should always leave a suspected bed bug infestation up to the experts at Pest Bros to handle the entire process. We will take care of you from our thorough inspection clear through our custom treatments to get rid of these invasive pests.

Signs of Bed Bug Infestations

How do you know if you are experiencing an infestation of bed bugs? Some of the most prominent signs of an infestation are rashes and skin irritations as well as reddish-brown smears residing in sleeping areas. Bed bugs love to sandwich their flat bodies in between couches and beds in your home and are carried easily from place to place. If you think your home might be infested with bed bugs, Pest Bros for a fast response so you can enjoy restful sleep once again.

Bed Bug Inspection

The first step in getting rid of bed bugs is to confirm that there is a problem. The pest professionals at Pest Bros have the experience and training needed to identify them right away. We know what to look for and where to look for it. When we are performing a visual inspection, there are certain things that we will be looking for to confirm a bed bug problem. We will look under mattresses, behind headboards, under and around nightstands, baseboards and even in other furniture in your home. Some of the signs that we will be looking for include:

  • Live or Dead Bed Bugs
  • Fecal Spotting
  • Cast Skins
  • Eggs

Heat Treatments for Bed Bugs

Bed bugs can’t handle environments that are hot. We aren’t talking a toasty 80 degrees in your home; think along the lines of 118-125 degrees Fahrenheit. The environment they are in needs to stay at 118 degrees for 90 minutes to effectively kill them. If the temperature is raised to 122 degrees, it kills them almost immediately. The process of our technicians performing a heat treatment on your home takes roughly 6-8 hours to ensure all the bed bugs have been killed. We will constantly monitor the situation so that we can ensure the temperature has gotten high enough that there are no bed bugs that can survive it.

Chemicals to Kill Bed Bugs & Their Eggs

While our heat treatment is extremely effective at killing bed bugs, it is important that the process is followed up with chemical treatments to deal with any eggs left behind. Heat treatments kill bed bugs that are active at that moment, but any eggs that are left behind will then hatch and you have a problem on your hands again. We will visit as many times as is needed to treat your home and ensure you don’t have any lingering bed bugs residing. These pests can take patience to get rid of, but when you leave it up to Pest Bros to handle the job, we will make sure it is done right and these bugs are effectively wiped out of your home.
