Smarter Commercial Bed Bug Control
Since their explosive re-emergence in the 1990s, bed bugs have become a huge problem pest throughout the US… for both homes and businesses. The bloodsuckers spread by hitchhiking with unsuspecting travelers, which means they’re more-than-capable of infiltrating any structure people move in and out of. Bed bugs frequently infest hospitality, multi-housing, educational, and medical facilities, but they’re frustratingly common across all industries.
Obviously, bed bugs are always a problem, but they’re particularly troublesome for businesses. A bed bug infestation could ruin your reputation, subject you to fines, or even shut you down! Bed bug infestations are nearly impossible to truly remove without professional help because bed bugs constantly lay nearly-microscopic eggs. If you suspect your business has a bed bug infestation, give Gregory Pest Solutions a call right away. We can help you, no matter your industry, problem, or the size of your business.
Gregory Bed Bug Control Programs
There are two steps to smarter, effective commercial bed bug control: identification and elimination. Both steps are crucial because if we don’t find and wipe out every single bed bug, the infestation isn’t really over. Luckily, Gregory has developed Smarter Solutions for both bed bug identification and elimination. We find your businesses’ entire infestation and wipe it out completely, every time. Here’s how our process works:
Step One: Bed bug-sniffing Dog Identification
Gregory specially trains dogs to sniff out bed bugs in commercial buildings. These dogs specialize in locating every bed bug hiding place in large target areas. We use bed bug-sniffing dogs to search apartments, hotels, and even warehouses for infestations. Dogs are highly-effective bed bug identifiers because they can sniff out bed bug eggs and larvae along with adults.
Our canine bed bug units will find bed bugs all of the bed bugs in your business. Our dogs help us locate possible infestation sites that other methods of bed bug detection might miss. After a canine inspection, we’ll have an exhaustive list of bed bug locations to treat. When we know everywhere your bed bugs are hiding, we’ll know how to wipe them out completely.
Step Two: Thermal Remediation® Heat Treatment
Thermal Remediation heat treatments are the most effective, least intrusive, and most environmentally-friendly way to combat bed bugs. Our experts subject each of the areas identified in step one with concentrated heat treatments of 120° F or higher. This continues for four hours until the heat has killed all bed bug adults, larvae, and eggs. We may also apply residual pesticides to nooks and crannies in target areas to ensure we get every bed bug. After treatment, we conduct one more inspection to make sure we’ve fully eliminated the infestation.
Thermal Remediation is so effective because applied 120°+ F heat effectively kills bed bugs at every stage of development. By eliminating eggs, larvae, and adults, we can ensure that bed bug infestations don’t “revive” after we’ve left. Residual pesticides are important because they help eliminate bugs from areas the heat may not reach completely. Together, these techniques allow us to treat entire facilities effectively and unobtrusively, regardless of their size or function. Gregory can and has eliminated bed bug infestations from schools, hotels, assisted living facilities, and more. We can eliminate your businesses’ bed bug infestation, too.
