Banish Bed Bugs

Discovering bed bugs in your home can be a nightmare. They raise countless questions: Where did they come from? How severe is the infestation? And, most importantly, how can you get rid of them? Fortunately, Barrier Pest Control has your back on all fronts. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll delve into the world of bed bugs and how our top-notch services can ensure your peace of mind.

Identifying Bed Bugs:

Visual Clues:

Spotting a bed bug can be tricky due to their tiny size and nocturnal nature. They are oval-shaped, reddish-brown insects about the size of an apple seed. They leave behind rusty or reddish stains on bedsheets and small, itchy bites on your skin. If you suspect bed bugs, don’t squish them; gently capture them for identification.

Importance of Documentation:

To avoid inspection fees, document your bed bug sightings with pictures or videos and email them to Barrier Pest Control. This documentation helps us determine if it’s indeed a bed bug infestation and paves the way for further inspection.

No-Cost Inspection:

Barrier Pest Control offers free inspections after receiving your documentation. Our experts will assess the infestation’s extent and provide you with an accurate quote for our services.

Effective Treatment Options:

Heat Treatment:

This method involves raising the temperature of your belongings to 140°F for several hours to exterminate bed bugs.

Scheduled Treatments:

Barrier Pest Control recommends a scheduled treatment. It targets infected areas and the entire home with specialized products designed to kill bed bugs on contact and over the next few days. This method is more budget-friendly, and we can guarantee its effectiveness without requiring additional treatments.

Preventing Bed Bugs:

How They Enter Your Home:

Bed bugs are introduced into your home through infested objects, including shoes, luggage, furniture, and other items that have been in contact with bed bug-infested areas. Vigilance is key.

Object Transmission:

Barrier Pest Control now offers heat treatments for individual items like furniture and luggage, effectively eliminating bed bugs before they invade your home. Whether you’re buying secondhand furniture or concerned about a hotel stay, our experts have you covered.
