things you need to know about bed bugs

 

Bed bugs are small, oval-shaped insects that feed on human and animal blood. They are reddish-brown in color and are typically the size of an apple seed. Once they are brought into your home, they can be very difficult to remove.

Other helpful things to know about bed bugs include:

  • Bed bugs are very easily introduced, or re-introduced, to any area of your home. In order to prevent a bed bug infestation, you can vacuum frequently, invest in a mattress cover, and inspect second-hand items before bringing them into your home.

  • Bed bugs do not like and cannot survive in extremely hot environments.
  • Eggs can lay dormant in your home for up to seven weeks before hatching. Vacuuming them can actually cause them to hatch early and also pulls them from the environment. Always empty the filter after vacuuming if you suspect you have been infested.
  • Sleeping in the same room that is infested is actually vital to treatment. When you discover an infestation in bedroom A, then start to sleep in bedroom B, you risk infesting bedroom B as well.
  • Bed bugs bite. The bites are often itchy, red, and in a line, and usually disappear with time. Hydrocortisone creams and antihistamines may speed recovery, but any further medical attention should not be necessary.

    our comprehensive treatment plans

    When you call on proof. pest control, you can count on us to implement advanced techniques and top-quality pest control products to take care of your bed bugs.

    • Inspect: Your technician will perform a thorough inspection of your home and locate any bed bug activity. This inspection will focus on areas where bed bugs normally are found, or where you suspect they’re active, such as beds, bed linens, bedroom furniture, clothing, and pictures.

    • Initial service: After the inspection, your technician will remove any visible bed bugs and apply a customized treatment to all areas where they are or may be present. The product(s) applied during this initial treatment will quickly eliminate all adult bed bugs in the treated area(s).
    • Final service: After two weeks, your technician will perform a second inspection and service. The product(s) applied during the second treatment will quickly take care of all remaining adult bed bugs that have hatched from eggs that were present during the first treatment.

      Once treatment is finished, your technician will instruct you on post-treatment procedures, including the reintroduction of clothes and other items that have been bagged and what you should expect for the second treatment, if needed.

      things to do before your bed bug service

      Please complete all preparations below BEFORE time of service, in all rooms in need of treatment. This preparation checklist is provided to ensure that our technicians can treat your home with maximum effectiveness.

      *Note: Your technician can opt to reschedule your appointment if the outlined procedures have not been followed.

      1. remove linen

      Remove all blankets, linens, sheets, pillows, towels, and curtains/draperies from the bed and rooms that will be treated. Place these items in plastic bags and thoroughly wash in the hottest water possible and dry on high heat for an extended period of time.

      2. remove storage

      Remove all items from drawers, closets, vanities, nightstands, and shelves. These items should also be placed in plastic bags and thoroughly washed and dried on high heat for an extended period of time before replacing them in the treated areas.

      3. move furniture

      Move all furniture at least 18 inches from the walls. Do NOT remove furniture or other items, this will cause bed bugs to be spread through the home.

      4. vacuum & clean

      Do not sweep. Use an attachment to vacuum mattress seams, box springs, bed legs, inside dresser drawers, etc. Baseboards should also be vacuumed with the attachment. Remove ALL vacuum filters afterward and throw away if disposable or thoroughly clean if reusable.

      All pictures, posters, and other objects hanging on walls should be removed and thoroughly cleaned.

      5. evacuate

      Once the technician has begun treatment, all residents and pets should evacuate the residence for four hours.

      enjoy your pest-free home

      Following the second treatment, all bed bugs will be taken care of and no new ones should be hatching. If you see any activity during the 30-day window after the second treatment, simply let us know and we’ll treat your home again at no charge to make sure you’re free from bed bugs.
