About Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are small, flat, brown insects that enter a home through luggage, clothing, bedding, used furniture, and other common household items. Bed bugs are not able to fly but can move rapidly over floors, walls, and even the ceiling. Bed bugs feed by biting people and leave behind itchy welts. Often confused with flea bites, which are found around the ankles, bed bug bites can be found on any area on the body.
Bed bugs can be identified by their brownish or reddish coloring and small, round bodies. They’re about the size of an apple seed as adults. Bed bugs also do not fly or jump.
How We Detect & Exterminate Bed Bugs
The Exclusive Pest Control bed bug heat treatment method is the most effective method to kill all bed bugs and eggs in just one day with little or no chemicals used. Our technicians have been trained by the industry leaders at Convectex to treat bed bugs using professional heating equipment. This type of treatment method is performed discreetly, using specialized electric heating equipment to exterminate bed bugs at all stages of their life cycles in less than 24 hours.
How Bed Bug Heat Treatments Work
Detection: There are several ways to detect the presence of bed bugs in a home or facility. The first method is through a visual inspection of the home. Our team examines rooms that are likely to be affected by a visual inspection. Bed bugs will often leave behind rusty stains on sheets and mattresses.
The second method of detection is through the use of our bed bug detection K-9. Our bed bug dog is able to enter a home or facility and detect any traces of a specific type of odor that bed bugs release.
Treatment: Once the presence of bed bugs is confirmed, our team works quickly to begin treatment. We can heat one room, or an entire structure, depending on the overall levels of infestation. The heat treatment easily will penetrate mattresses, box springs, furniture, carpets, walls, and ceilings thus eliminating the once and for all. The heat treatment process our team utilizes is safe and will not damage the structure, furniture, or personal items.
