Bed Bug Treatment, Control, Removal & Prevention
The best way to get rid of a bed bug infestation without guests noticing is to find them early and hire experienced bed bug exterminators. Bed bug control experts who have experience treating nursing homes, multi-family residences, hotels, and businesses know where to find them so they can exterminate them completely the first time.
Bed Bug Inspection Process
During the inspection, our technicians may prop up the mattress and strip the sheets, blankets, and any other bedding that was on the mattress suspected of housing bed bugs. Then they will look inside the bed frame and mattress searching for any signs of bed bug activity or live bugs.
The pest control technician will also look inside couches, chairs, and any other furniture made of wood because they live and burrow in the wood when they’re not feeding on human blood. They will also look inside any magazines and books because tiny bed bugs and their eggs like to burrow inside book spines. One of the most common causes of bed bug infestations is library books because they allow eggs and young bed bugs to hitchhike from place to place.
Once the pest control finishes the thorough inspection of bedding, books, furniture, etc. they will tell you if your business has an active bed bug infestation. They will also tell you what furniture, materials, and other property are salvageable and what they recommend you get rid of immediately. Then the technicians will provide a quote for bed bug treatment along with a timeline and what you can expect during the treatment and removal phase.
Bed Bug Treatment, Removal & Cleanup
If you want to proceed with service, our technicians will treat the affected areas with fumigators, exterminating all the bed bugs and removing any approved bed bug-infested property. We urge you to hire a professional bug exterminator. To aid and expedite the bed bug infestation, clear any cluttered items, trash, debris, or infested furniture that you are going to throw out. You can also make the inspection easier by having your staff remove the bedding, sheets, and blankets and throwing out unwanted items from the infected area.

If your appointment isn’t for another day or few days there are things you can do to minimize the spread of the infestation before the professionals arrive to eradicate them.
- Prop up the mattress and, if possible, take the bed apart. These parasites often conceal themselves in bed frames.
- Remove all beddings and isolate them in large bags until they are properly washed.
- Vacuum the areas where there is evidence of habitation. Discard the vacuum cleaner bags shortly after vacuuming. This is to prevent transferring the bugs to other areas of the house.
How to Treat Bed Bug Bites
Bed bug bites typically come with several attacks. The bites generally manifest on the arms and legs. Sometimes they also appear on the neck area and torso. Bed bugs have a tendency to assemble together in concealed, undisturbed areas where you sit or sleep. Once you discover an infestation, a complete treatment is necessary.
Unlike ticks, bed bugs don’t live in your skin. They bite or feed on the skin then go back to their hiding place, and then go back to feed again. Even though bed bugs don’t live in the skin, their bites can develop into an infection or cause itchiness. Treat the bug bites to prevent the wounds from getting infected and less itchy. You can do this by showering with warm or hot water. Rubbing an exfoliating body cleanser on the body helps, too. You can also apply anti-itch ointment on the bites. Make a note of any white or red welts on your body as they require a prescription cream from the doctor.
When it comes to bed bugs, don’t DIY. We can be in and out with minimal effect on your business’s day-to-day operations and back in business in no time.
About Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are wingless, blood-sucking bugs that are sensitive to heat. They are found just about everywhere, including the great state of Texas. A bed bug initially starts its life as a tiny egg around the size of a poppy seed. From there, it feeds on blood and grows into the nymph or juvenile stage bug. It will then develop into a brown or red adult bed bug. This type of parasite can roughly live up to 20 months. It can also go with no blood meal for less than two years. It’s possible for a female bed bug to lay more than 500 eggs in one life cycle. At a normal temperature, these little eggs hatch in ten days.
