Cimi-Shield is a revolutionary new treatment in bed bug extermination. The main ingredient in Cimi-Shield is derived from soy bean oil and works by destroying the bed bug's waxy outer layer on contact. When we apply Cimi-Shield, we will treat all affected areas of an infested structure including carpets, rugs, drapes, furniture, bed frames, mattresses and box springs. A Cimi-Shield barrier can last for up to one year and greatly reduces the number of call-backs we see for bed bug infestations. Cimi-Shield has no smell and does not require your family and pets to leave the structure during application.
Cimi-Shield for Multi-Unit Structures
Apartments & Condominiums
Controlling bed bugs in apartments and condos can be a nightmare. There is a very high risk of reinfestation if you don't treat every unit in an apartment or condo complex. Using Cimi-Shield in these structures is ideal because you will gain control quickly, with the least amount of disturbance to your tenants. Cimi-Shield does not stain fabrics or carpets or leave stains in treated areas. We can apply Cimi-Shield to all units in a matter of hours and you will not need to worry about relocating your tenants.Hotels
Hotels are bed bug hotspots because travelers can bring a massive multi-unit infestation with the drop of a suitcase. Cimi-Shield is ideal for hotel owners because we can discretely apply the product and treat all units in a matter of hours. An application of Cimi-Shield can last for up to one year and will destroy bed bugs on contact. Thanks to Cimi-Shield's odorless properties and low-toxicity, hotel patrons can sleep soundly knowing your location is bed bug-free.
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
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.
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
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
