Smarter Residential Bed Bug Control
Bed bugs re-emerged as a major pest problem in the mid-1990s after nearly disappearing for decades prior. Now bed bugs are back, and they’re back with a vengeance. Bed bugs have spread across the US, infecting nearly every city, suburb, and town. Today, they’re one of the most common pests homeowners call experts about every day.
Bed bugs don’t spread disease, but they do (infamously) feed on human blood. The bed-infesting pests spread and entrench themselves in homes very easily. At least, they’re hard to get rid of without professional help. If you suspect you have an infestation, we recommend getting in touch as soon as possible. Professional treatments are the only sure way to keep bed bugs from continuing to spread through your home… and bed.
Gregory Bed Bug Control Programs
There are two steps to smarter, effective bed bug control: finding the bugs and wiping them out. Each of these parts is essential: if we don’t both find and eliminate every single bug, the infestation could start again. Luckily, Gregory has proven Smarter Solutions for both aspects of treatment. We find your entire infestation and make sure to wipe it out completely. Here’s how we do it:
Step One: Bed Bug-sniffing Dog Identification
Gregory trains bed bug-sniffing dogs to locate infestations. The dogs are specially trained to sniff out bed bugs at every stage of development. They don’t just find adult bed bugs; they find the eggs and larvae bed bug infestations create, too.
By utilizing our canine unit, we can locate every bed bug hideout through your home. We don’t just find the bed bugs in your bed; we’ll find them in your carpet, headboard, closet, and anywhere else they may be hiding. Once we’ve found every single bug, we’ll know exactly where to focus when we begin wiping them out.
Step Two: Thermal Remediation® Heat Treatment
The Thermal Remediation heat treatment is the most effective, least intrusive, and most environmentally-friendly way to combat bed bugs all at once. Our experts subject each of the treatment areas identified in step 1 to concentrated heat treatments of 120° F or higher. We circulate this hot air using fans and monitor the process for four hours of application. We may also apply residual insecticides into cracks and crevices to eliminate bed bugs that could avoid the heat. After treatment, we’ll conduct a final follow-up inspection to ensure that all bed bugs were eliminated successfully.
Thermal remediation is so effective because applied 120° F heat kills bed bugs at every stage of development. We can completely eliminate bed bug eggs, larvae, and adults with Heat Remediation. Residual pesticides serve to eliminate stragglers in hard-to-reach areas unintrusively. With heat remediation, you don’t have to worry about infestations “reviving” after eliminated adult’s eggs hatch, because we get the eggs, too. Overall, thermal remediation is the Smarter Solution to residential bed bug infestation problems. We wipe out bed bugs and help make sure they don’t come back.
