When it comes to bed bug elimination, The Bug Man offers a variety of treatments. First, a bit of information about these nasty little creatures! Bed bugs are small insects that feed on blood from humans or animals. They can live in your bed, furniture, carpet, clothing, and other belongings. They’re most active at night, feeding on people while they sleep.
What do bed bug bites look like?
Bed bugs can be 1 to 7 millimeters long. They’re flat, oval-shaped and reddish-brown in color. They don’t have wings, so they rely on animals or humans to carry them from one place to another.
Bed bugs can bite any part of your body, but they’ll usually focus on areas of skin that are exposed while you sleep, such as your face, neck, arms, and hands. In some cases, the bites may develop into fluid-filled blisters. Although bed bug bites are rarely dangerous, bites can be very itchy. In some cases, the bite can become infected, cause an allergic reaction or leave you with a bed bug rash that is very irritating. Some people don’t develop noticeable symptoms from bed bug bites. When symptoms do develop, the bed bug bite tends to be:
- red and swollen, with a dark spot at the center
- arranged in lines or clusters, with multiple bites grouped together
Bed Bug occurrences have become more prominent than ever. If you suspect there are bed bugs living in your home, call us for a bed bug inspection, because it is important to get rid of them as soon as possible before the infestation becomes too great. Here at The Bug Man, we use two primary methods for bed bug removal: heat and chemical options as well as whole-house fumigation. All of the options are effective and are often used in combination. As professional bed bug exterminators, ask us for a recommendation.
The Bug Man uses a heat tent for bed bug elimination that can be set up inside your home. This bed bug control method eliminates these insects at all phases of their life cycle from egg to mature adults. The tent can hold an entire king bedroom set and can heat everything from bedding to electronics. Each treatment takes approximately two hours. Along with this bed bug service, we recommend also chemically treating thresholds and wall voids while the heat tent is in operation to make sure no areas are missed.
This is the most well known method of bed bug treatment where we disassemble the entire room by taking apart furniture, removing wall outlets and frames off the wall, etc to chemically treat every crack and crevice in the room. We even remove the casing off the box spring so we can access the wood frame for better treatment results.
