Bed Bug Infestation

In some cases, bed bugs may be particularly problematic, while other situations are easily managed by 2-3 chemical treatment services. Severe bed bug problems require a more aggressive approach and are a perfect candidate for a bed bug fumigation. Much like a fumigation for termites, the structure is tented and sealed off to provide bed bug control by using Vikane gas. A bed bug fumigation ensures that all bed bugs are effectively eradicated.

Bed Bug Inspection

Bed bugs can infest a variety of places, most often furniture where a host spends a majority of his or her time. Likely furniture hiding places include tufts and seams of mattresses, headboards, nightstands, behind picture frames, couches, etc.  Since bed bugs are secretive, they spend a majority of their time in hiding. Hiding places can include behind electrical outlets where there is a heat source, appliances near sleeping areas (phones, alarm clocks…), carpet tack strips, drapes, among other areas.

Bed bug evidence can include live bed bugs, blood stains, bed bug skin casings and bed bug bites.  The below bed bug evidence was located behind several picture frames during a bed bug inspection.

Advantages of Bed Bug Fumigation

  • Eliminates ALL bed bug stages, including eggs, in the fumigated structure, including bed bugs not detected or inaccessible to other bed bug treatments
  • Vikane gas levels are measured during the fumigation to ensure a lethal dose was reached
  • Only one treatment is necessary compared to chemical re-treatments
  • Fumigation for bed bugs is effective even if the treatment site is cluttered, which can be a major hindrance to effective bed bug chemical treatments
