The threat and reality of bed bug activity is real and they are fast becoming an epidemic. Bed bugs have been a pest of man for a long time and are found throughout the Pee Dee Area.
Bed bug infestations pose a real challenge to homes and businesses alike. Once an infestation is established bed bugs can be found in any crack or crevice. They are commonly found in furniture, behind baseboards, under carpets, behind light switches, electrical outlets and picture frames. Of course their favorite location is near their food source which is us, so they are found in bed frames, mattress folds and head boards.
A treatment for bed bug control is a task for an experienced pest control operator. A thorough inspection is performed to identify and assess the severity of the infestation, and then a treatment process is determined and implemented.
Heat is the most effective method for killing bed bugs. At 122 degrees, bed bugs - whether live adult insects or as eggs - die.
Harris Pest Control, Inc. offers a wide range of heat applications to ensure that your bed bug infestation is eliminated.
Heat Treatments for Bed Bug Control:
• Are a safe and an environmentally responsible solution.
• In most cases take only one day and requires only one treatment.
• Effectively treat the entire structure and its contents.
• Result in an immediate elimination of the bed bug population.
• Kill all bed bug life stages from eggs to adults.
• Do not require evacuation of areas adjacent to treated areas.
Another treatment option that is available is the use of steam and chemical applications. This can be an effective treatment process but usually requires multiple applications.
