Bed Bug Inspections
Before we can treat a bed bug infestation, it is important to know where they are and if they’re coming from somewhere else. If your home or business shares walls with other tenants, it is possible that bed bugs are coming from other units. Pest Innovations will send one of our expert, state-licensed technicians will perform a thorough walk-through of your home or business. Once we determine the source and scope and the infestation, we will customize a plan of action for you.
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.
Southern California's Favorite Extermination Company
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.

George was such a nice guy and answered all my questions about my bed bugs. It was clear that he was giving me advice to save me money, and his was the lowest rate by far out of all the places I researched. He also came the next day, on a Saturday morning, which was so important to me or anyone with a new bed bug problem. I'll use him for a follow up, cannot wait for my new little roommates to die.

We have been using Pest Innovations to service more than 50 buildings that we manage. They have been doing so for over a year and we are very satisfied with their service, their pricing and their results. They have taken care of all kinds of pests for us, including cockroaches, bed bugs, termites, mice and rats. No problem has been too big or too small. We highly recommend this company for a house or a large apartment building. George is very knowledgeable and all of his technicians are trained and know what to do in every situation.

I had a Heat Treatment done for Bed Bugs at my house in Pomona. George is so knowledgeable and the guys that showed up with him to do the job were very professional. Would definitely use/recommend Pest Innovations for any future services.

I was horrified to learn I had bed bugs. George was the first person I spoke to after wasting hundreds of dollars on extermination that did not work. George gave me a quote on the phone for heat fumigation treatment. He then came to my house a couple of days later and treated my house. His team was awesome. They did a great job and I haven't had any bites since. Would highly recommend him to anyone.

I liked George, the owner, right from the start. He is very professional and gave me a good quote for the job of getting rid of bed bugs. He also offered a guarantee for his work. His associates were polite and conscientious as well. I would highly recommend him to others.

Pest Innovations did a great job. What impressed me the most was that the owner spent 30 minutes with me discussing my bed bug problem and options. They were also able to come out the next day after I called them. They worked their magic while I was at work. The only caution I have for anyone considering the high heat treatment is that it can damage items and paint. This was all explained to me however, and I made the choice to do it regardless. It was a small price to pay, however, and I am so relieved to be able to sleep again.

Bed Bug Treatment Options
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 treatments are 100% non-toxic because chemicals are not applied during service.
Crossfire excels where other traditional pesticides fail at combating bed bugs. Crossfire is scientifically formulated to kill pyrethroid-resistant bed bugs at all stages of life and prevent their eggs from hatching. With our CrossFire bed bug treatment, you can expect continued bed bug control for up to 30 days after treatment without staining ttreated fabrics or carpets.
Cimi-shield is a revolutionary new treatment in the war against bed bugs. The main ingredient of Cimi-Shield is a derivative of soy bean oil. Cimi-Shield destroys a bed bug's waxy outer layer on contact and does not leave stains or odor where it is applied. This product allows us to treat your home while you and your family are there. A single treatment of Cimi-Shield can last for up to one year.
Steam is a non-chemical bed bug heat treatment which works well for directly treatable areas. Steam offers a quick knockdown of bed bugs and eggs which are exposed to the high temperatures. After steam treating the area, we apply Crossfire for lasting residual protection.
Fumigation is ideal when there are other pests like termites infesting the structure. Heat will not kill termites since they live in areas that will not be affected by the heat treatment. Fumigation requires a bit of prep work by the occupants because they will need to bag their food items and vacate the structure for approximately 3 days.

My House Is Clean, How Did I Get Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs enter the home through a variety of ways, most often by hitching a ride on you or your luggage. In apartments, bed bugs travel through wall voids and infest the entire structure. Bed bugs are not an indicator of uncleanliness. They spread quickly because they travel in suitcases, on clothing, in storage compartments and on used furniture. They can also move easily between walls in hotels or live in the fabric seats of movie theaters. Birds and other wildlife can transfer these pests to your property. A bed bug infestation is easy to acquire because all it takes is for one pregnant female to attach herself to you or your items before you find your home or work space infested.
Do Bed Bugs Spread Disease?
There has never been any scientific evidence linking bed bugs to disease like other parasites such as mosquitos. Even if a bed bug bites multiple people in one night, it is not possible for human diseases to spread from the bites.
