How Do I Treat Bed Bug Infestations?

The best way to treat bed bugs is by using professional quality bed bug heat systems. Bed bugs are extremely susceptible to heat and can be eradicated quickly and easily during a successful heat treatment. Depending on the level of infestation, you might be able to rent professional equipment and kill them all once & for all!   If the problem is large & extensive, we recommend having our Certified Professionals complete an in depth treatment.

Trying to treat a bed bug problem on your own can be difficult and costly and in the long run is not usually successful.  Why waste money on treatments that are not proven to be effective?  The CDC recommends calling a pest control company at the first sign of bed bug infestation.  Bed Bug Assassins provide quick and confidential services that are proven to eliminate bed bugs.

There are ways that you can help prevent and treat the bed bugs that, along with our proven heat treatments, can help you become bug free. Our pest control technicians will be happy to share ways to protect your family, home or business. Some other things you can do:

  • If you see a live bug, it can be killed by spraying with a little bit of rubbing alcohol. ***
  • De-clutter your living space. Any items removed from the space should be bagged, tagged, and immediately placed in the outside bin for disposal.
  • There is no need to throw away all of your furniture or belongings. Heat treatment can penetrate these areas and ensure that any hiding bugs are killed.
  • Vacuum the affected area thoroughly, including under and around beds and dressers. Empty the vacuum container outside immediately after vacuuming.
  • Placing bug interceptors under legs of beds and couches can prevent bugs from climbing up into the bed. This is also an effective way to monitor the bugs reproductive activity and population density
  • Buy mattress and box spring encasements that have been proven to block bed bugs from passing through.  These must be left on for at least 1 year in order to ensure that no bugs that have been possibly trapped inside are still living.
