Once we determine the scope of the infestation, we will recommend a treatment plan that is customized to your needs and budget. The most common type of treatment we use to remove bed bugs is heat treatment. This will not require a big move-out like a fumigation and you will not need to do any heavy lifting to prepare for service.

Pesticide & Chemical-Free Bed Bug Treatments
Bed Bug Heat Treatments
When using heat to remove bed bugs, the structure will be closed off and the temperature is raised to about 150 degrees inside. This treatment lasts for about 4 hours and is hot enough to kill all pests in the structure, without damaging your property or electronics. The heat is able to penetrate walls and other surfaces not easily reached by traditional pesticides. Heat treatments are ideal because no pesticide application is needed. Tenants do not have to vacate for more than a couple of hours and furniture and other heavy items do not need to be moved prior to service.Cimi-Shield Treatment
Cimi-Shield is the latest product to destroy bed bugs without using chemicals. Cimi-Shield is a soybean oil based solution that removes the waxy outer layer of the bed bug. This is the only product on the market that will destroy eggs, nymphs and adults, while preventing future infestations. Cimi-Shield does not stain furniture and you will not need to leave the home during treatment.Learn More About Cimi-Shield
Steam is a non-chemical bed bug heat treatment which works well for directly treatable areas. The steam generated by the Cimex Eradicator is compressed and re-heated before it leaves the steamer, ensuring the dryest, hottest steam available for bed bug treatments. This super heated, dry steam system uses half the moisture of commonly available steam systems, minimizing risk of damage to surfaces. In lab tests, a single treatment with the superheated dry steam killed 100% of eggs and 90% of all bed bug adults present. Depending on your chemcial sensitivity, our steam treatments are paired with Crossfire or Cimishield to provide lasting protection after treatment.
CrossFire is a revolutionary new treatment in bed bug extermination. Where other traditional pesticides fail at combating bed bugs, CrossFire has been scientifically formulated to kill pyrethroid-resistant bed bug strains at all life stages and prevent bed bugs eggs from hatching. The combination of two pesticides in CrossFire is the secret of it's effectiveness, the first delivering a quick kill and the second providing a strong residual effect. With our CrossFire bed bug treatment, you can expect continued bed bug control for up to 30 days. CrossFire does not stain fabrics or carpets and will not leave stains in treated areas like mattresses.
Bed Bug Fumigation
To begin fumigation, a structure is sealed off and tented. Vikane gas is then pumped through the tented structure for about 2 days. Vikane works by removing the oxygen in the structure, thus suffocating all pests including bed bugs, termites, ants, spiders etc. Fumigation works very well to reach any area that cannot be treated by traditional pesticide. It is not used often as a means to treat bed bugs because other methods are less invasive and equally cost effective. Fumigation may be recommended, however, if termites or other pests are found in the property.Learn More About Bed Bug Fumigation
TestimonialsPenny G. Los Angeles, California
I recently discovered I had bed bugs in my home. The stigma is a feeling that most everyone has, a bit of shame, I must be a dirty person. The silence, the feelings we have to live with, hear this, "it happens to a lot of people". The people who were there for me to help me through the process - Pest Innovations in Glendora., were kind and quick to point out this was not my fault. They were sensitive in their handling, not only with the actual ridding process, but helped to lift the stigma in my mind that I caused the problem. They explained that bed bugs are the best hitch hikers in the world and also explained further how it could happen (to the best of us) in so many ways. Their business model is state of the art handling of a "more than you realize" common problem. They are through, diligent and concerned for the customers state of mind, and help you through the process, so much so, it gives you a great peace of mind even though you're dealing with an unfamiliar journey. The entire staff, office included, are deeply invested in carrying out their work in a diligent fashion. They take a great deal of pride in what they do, and their level of commitment is fantastic. Bottom line - They deliver quality in their work. I'm hoping this review show cases the level of dedication they bring to each customer. Testimonials
Heat Treatment Bed Bug Control
The best method of bed bug removal is a heat treatment. When using a heat treatment, we will seal the home and use our patented heaters to raise the internal temperature to about 150 degrees. This is hot enough to destroy all pests and their eggs, but not enough to destroy your property or electronics. When heat is applied this way, it penetrates walls and crevices we are unable to reach with traditional pesticides. Heat treatment is 100% non-toxic and will not require you to throw out your mattress or furniture.Learn More About Bed Bug Heat Treatment
How Do I Know I Have Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs leave evidence during an infestation. The most common evidence is bites on their victims. These bites are not painful, however, they do leave red marks. Common bite areas include your back, the inside of your arms or on the back of your legs and feet. Their bites also leave behind drops of blood, so if you notice small blood stains on your mattress, you may want to look around for other indicators. Bed bugs also live in the creases of furniture and mattresses. If you lift up your mattress or remove the seats from your chairs, you may find bed bugs or bed bug droppings. If you think you see any signs of bed bug activity, call Pest Innovations today for a full-structure bed bug inspection.
