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.

Bed Bug Treatment Options

Heat Treatment

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. Learn more about our Bed Bug Heat Treatment service.

Crossfire

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. Learn more about Crossfire bed bug treatment.

Cimi-Shield

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. Learn more about Cimi-Shield.

Steam

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. Learn more about steam bed bug treatment.

Fumigation

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. Learn more about our Bed Bug Fumigation service.

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.
